In hopes of bringing more jobs and affordable homes to the country after fighting off a pandemic for the past year, President Joe Biden is pushing forward with his new plan on rebuilding the nation's infrastructure.

U.S. Senator Rand Paul joined 44News This Morning to discuss what needs to be eliminated from the $2 trillion proposal, which many opponents say features items that fall outside of the boundaries of traditional infrastructure.

Sen. Paul also discussed what he describes as government overreach when it comes to wearing masks, specifically in Kentucky where protesters recently gathered calling Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear's vaccine goals for the state, similar to a vaccine mandate.

After what was our coldest start today since January 8th, temperatures only climbed as high as 25° in Evansville earlier today, marking our coolest afternoon in just under two weeks. The evening ahead will be equally bone-chilling; after seeing temperatures around 21° at dinnertime we'll tumble back down to 19° by 10 o’clock under gradually decreasing cloud cover. The combination of clear skies and northerly winds will allow temperatures to fall all the way back down to 15° in Evansville early Friday morning. Worse yet, windchill values are expected to dive right back down into the single digits area-wide.
