President Donald Trump is going to unveil his latest $1.5 trillion infrastructure plan on Monday and Miami-Dade County Commission chair Esteban “Steve” Bovo will be on hand. 

Bovo, head of the county's transit committee, was part of about two dozen governors, state legislators, mayors and local officials from around the country invited to the White House. 

"In DC today for meetings with before the roll out of trillion dollar infrastructure bill. Funding for transportation and transit is critical to the ," Bovo tweeted. 

Miami-Dade will need federal funds to move forward with the SMART transit plan which aims to reduce traffic along six major travel routes in and out of downtown Miami. The White House plan calls for $200 billion in direct federal funding with the bulk of the $1.5 trillion to come from state and local governments along with private firms.
