The Trump Administration is considering a new push for infrastructure in an effort to restart the economy. The draft plan is expected to call for nearly $1 trillion in infrastructure spending, and would be attached to the Surface Transportation Reauthorization which is up for renewal on September 30th. While the Administration will likely not follow the House Democrats framework, the Invest in America Act, the move signals the willingness to negotiate a broader package before the November elections.

This news comes as the BDA has also learned that the House Committee on Ways and Means plans to release the tax title to the Invest in America Act later this month, and the additions will likely include some bond provisions.
