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 a damp start to our Monday, the rain and skies gradually cleared for many of us and we were left with a pleasant and breezy, albeit humid afternoon throughout the Tri-State. The southerly winds paired with the clearer skies later in the day helped drive temperatures back into mid to low 80s for many of us. The evening ahead should remain dry and mild; after seeing temperatures around 80° dinnertime and 75° by 10PM, we'll fall off to a morning low near 69° in Evansville early Tuesday morning.
