Default Trump at Coal Haven

Trump today gave a speech standing at what years ago would have been Marmet's Landing above downtown Cincinnati. He highlighted the need for infrastructure improvements in America and particularly the river systems. I can fully agree with him on this one! The devil is in the details, and with Trump's plan it could mean fees to use the upgraded locks and dams with the public/private financing he proposes. Also how this squares with the Northwest Ordinance allowing free use of the rivers covered by this early law might be for the courts to decide.
