Trump’s $1 Trillion Infrastructure Plan Is Back

President Donald Trump’s 2020 budget request to Congress has been released, and with it is a renewed call for a $1 trillion infrastructure plan. This 13-digit proposal is a notably scaled back version of Trump’s previous plans, both in the amount of new money the president is looking to spend and in reforms he’s hoping to make.

“Decades after building-out the core of our infrastructure, much of it is in urgent need of repair, expansion, and modernization,” reads a fact-sheet released alongside the budget. “Without continued investment and maintenance, America’s infrastructure will continue to age, deteriorate in quality and performance, and gradually contribute less to American economic output.”
