Mulero spoke with host Pedro Echevarria about the prospects for movement on an infrastructure plan in Congress during the first quarter of 2018.
Sen. John Barrasso (R-Wyo.), chairman of the Environment and Public Works Committee, said recently that the Trump administration will be outlining a broad vision for infrastructure in January, and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said there is bipartisan support for infrastructure reform.
Trump’s plan would provide agencies with $1 trillion over 10 years, with 80% of the funding originating from the private sector, according to a White House blueprint.
On Dec. 20, American Trucking Associations President Chris Spear asked Congress to consider establishing an infrastructure fund capable of generating about $340 billion over 10 years.
The program aired live on C-SPAN and on c-span.org.
