President Trump unveils his ambitious $1.5 trillion public infrastructure plan. Trump proposes offering $100 billion in federal incentives to encourage states and cities to invest in roads, bridges, highways, railways, and water utilities etc. The federal incentives help spur $1.5 trillion infrastructure expenditures over the next decade. Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao indicates to the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee that the Trump team seeks to work with Congress to find bipartisan solutions. All options are on the table, and the Trump administration is open to considering all revenue sources.

This plan calls for allocating at least $200 billion in initial federal funds to encourage states, cities, and the private sector to spur $1.5 trillion infrastructure expenditures over the next decade. Also, this plan would reduce the amount of time for issuing onsite construction permits for infrastructure projects to 2 years.

Since his presidential election victory, Trump has thus far focused on bilateral trade, healthcare, immigration, gun control, and other socioeconomic issues. There may or may not be enough time for passing an infrastructure bill in late-2018.

U.S. lawmakers may need to act fast during a lame-duck interim session after the November 2018 midterm elections.
