60 Minutes: Crumbling Infrastructure
Former US transportation secretary Ray LaHood is speaking with 60 Minutes this weekend about the state of disrepair that much of the country finds itself in. The roads and bridges that we rely on each day in traffic could literally fall out from under us.
With more than 70,000 bridges noted for being “structurally deficient,” LaHood now co-chairs the bipartisan coalition Building America’s Future. Find out what he learned on the inside, and see what the American Society of Civil Engineers has to say about this mounting problem. Could it mean more taxes are in store? Find out whether this will become a priority in Washington on the November 23 show.
60 Minutes: Revisiting Chernobyl
Bob Simon is revisiting Chernobyl, the site of the world’s worst nuclear power plant crisis, nearly 30 years after a day that changed history and had a devastating impact on many lives. Believe it or not, it is still a dangerous, radioactive place. In the Ukraine, they have embarked on a construction project to cover what’s left behind, since radiation doesn’t ever really go away. Learn more about this unbelievable chapter of history on 60 Minutes this Sunday.
