Trump Administration’s Latest Moves to Boost Infrastructure Renewal

The Washington Post reports, “President Trump’s pledge to create a program that funds $1 trillion in new infrastructure programs has kicked off with ­numerous meetings but few firm decisions, beset by understaffing, bureaucratic challenges and major questions about how to pay for everything. . . . Despite those challenges, the White House’s infrastructure team has become one of its broadest task forces, with Trump considering it a central plank of his promise to create more jobs.”

Reuters reports that Trump “met with business leaders . . . and real estate developers [on March 8], as the administration seeks partnerships with the private sector to boost infrastructure spending.”
