Proposed to streamline the stifling bureaucracy, accelerate cumbersome permitting processes and expedite real-world results, the Legislative Outline for Rebuilding Infrastructure in America was released by the Trump Administration on February 12, 2018.
Key to its successful implementation and sustainability will be just how realistically individual states and municipalities can respond, knowing that the federal government is contributing just $200 billion to this 10-year program. To achieve the goal of $1.5 trillion in infrastructure investments over the next decade, the bulk of funding to rebuild roads, bridges, waterways, energy projects, rural infrastructure, public lands and other projects would need to come from state and local governments or the private sector.
