Columbia’s Democratic mayor will be meeting with President Donald Trump on Monday.
Steve Benjamin will be among other leaders talking with Trump and Vice President Mike Pence about infrastructure spending.
Trump plans to unveil a $1.5 trillion spending plan Monday to repair highways and bridges across the country, along with railroads, airports and other public infrastructure.
Never miss a local story.
Much of the money for the plan, however, will come from state and local governments, so the White House is reaching out to get local support for the plan.
