Earlier this week, President Trump met with more than 50 company executives, from JetBlue Airways to Vornado Trust Realty and more, to discuss his administration’s infrastructure plans, which could top $1 trillion.
He let the audience know that projects that cannot be started within 90 days will not be federally funded, and that he’d like to hasten the permitting process for bridges and roads.
The administration is potentially going to offer tax credits to private companies as a incentive for private investment to help raise funds. Additionally, there is speculation that there will be a value-add or carbon tax to serve as revenue raisers.
