The White House recently released its “Legislative Outline for Rebuilding Infrastructure in America.”
In the preamble to the outline, The White House requested that Congress act to implement the infrastructure program in short order through new legislation. In broad strokes, the outline calls for new spending to stimulate $1.5 trillion dollars in infrastructure investments, from federal and state governments, agencies and localities, to address American infrastructure projects.
Should the program be implemented by Congress in any meaningful way, it would mean a boon for public construction projects and contractors. Contractors would be wise to keep a careful eye on this proposed legislation as it develops.
