CONGRESS/INFRASTRUCTURE/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “President Donald Trump will ask Congress in his State of the Union address on Tuesday [2-5-19] to pass legislation to boost the nation’s aging infrastructure, but will not explain how to pay for it, administration officials said. Trump is likely to set a benchmark of investing at least $1 trillion to build roads, bridges and other projects over the next decade, the officials said, but it is not clear if he will endorse new government spending for all or part of that amount. Two administration officials said Trump, who vowed in 2016 as a candidate to back $1 trillion of infrastructure spending over 10 years, will stop short of offering a detailed plan. In February 2018, Trump asked Congress to authorize $200 billion in federal money over 10 years to spur a projected $1.5 trillion in road, bridge and other projects mostly funded by states, cities and the private sector.”
