$4 trillion budget proposal includes a big increase in spending on infrastructure - and some say it's just in time.
President Barack Obama proposed a record-high budget of $4 trillion Monday. It includes his plan to upgrade the nation's aging bridges and roads by boosting transportation spending by some 30% over the next six years.
President Obama was in Arizona Thursday pushing policies he says have turned around the housing slump, with home sales and construction up, and foreclosures at their lowest level since 2006.
Home building's a big part of Arizona's economy, so the state was hit especially hard by the housing downturn.
