Trump Administration in February 2018; released its infrastructure initiative to modernize the country's infrastructure. The initiative, which is estimated to cost US$200 billion, seeks to spur US$1.5 trillion billion in state, local and private infrastructure investments over the next ten years, by giving incentives to project sponsors that can demonstrate innovative approaches to create new revenue sources for projects andimprove procurement practices and project implementation. The infrastructure initiative also seeks to support rural communities through rural project grants, and speed up the delivery of large-scale infrastructure projects across the country with increased federal loan support.
Reduced tax rates and deregulation are expected to boost overall investment levels over the coming years, especially in the telecommunications, energy and air transportation sectors. States and local governments are pushing for higher gas tax and user fees in order to increase revenues for public works, while the Trump administration is seeking to harness private capital to take advantage of government spending on infrastructure at the federal, state and local levels.
