 A top White House official told conservative groups that President Donald Trump's long-delayed infrastructure plan could — finally — be unveiled in as little as two weeks, according to people briefed on the meeting.

Paul Teller, a special assistant to the president for legislative affairs, was asked about a leaked infrastructure plan at the Tuesday meeting, a regular Capitol Hill gathering of top minds on the right, those people said. Teller said the document was not reflective of the administration's ultimate proposal to fix the country's crumbling roads and bridges.

Teller said the president will give more details during next week's State of the Union address and then present a concrete document to lawmakers in two to four weeks, the people familiar with the meeting said.

Lawmakers have been waiting for more than a year for details on Trump's infrastructure proposal, which he has said could lead to $1 trillion in infrastructure investment. Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.), a key transportation lawmaker, said in an interview with POLITICO he was a "little frustrated" with the delay.
