House Democrats propose their own infrastructure plan

House Democrats introduced their own infrastructure plan Wednesday as lawmakers await further details on President Donald Trump’s expected $1 trillion spend, according to The Hill. The New Democrat Coalition’s “fund it, fix it and foster it” strategy would use repatriated taxes to fund infrastructure and seek long-term revenue streams for the Highway Trust Fund. The proposal would also implement an expedited permitting process, broaden the definition of infrastructure and encourage the use of public-private partnerships (P3s).
