President Obama talks transportation and infrastructure during a trip Wednesday to Minnesota.

In St. Paul, Obama will tour a light rail operations facility and propose a four-year, $302 billion highway bill.

His plan would be financed by a corporate tax overhaul, though Senate leaders say that is unlikely to pass this year.

The Congressional Budget Office has said that without new money, the Highway Trust Fund will be unable to take on new highway projects in 2015.

During his visit to St. Paul, Obama will also announce a new $600 million competition for federal grants to finance infrastructure projects.

The competition is designed to encourage "investments to create jobs and restore infrastructure as part of the President's Year of Action," says the White House.

Obama returns to Washington on Wednesday evening.
