Marketplace Morning Report

Marketplace Morning Report for Monday May 12, 2014

It’s Infrastructure Week! And the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and National Association of Manufacturers, helps host discussions of what’s to be done about the U.S.’s crumbling infrastructure – who is to build it? – as among other things, the highway trust fund slowly slides toward zero. Plus, on May 15th the FCC is due to vote on a plan to regulate the internet. More than 100 major technology companies are calling on the regulator to reconsider a plan that would allow content companies to pay broadband providers for faster Internet speeds to deliver their traffic as long as the deals are  "commercially reasonable."
