Tackling America’s Infrastructure Problem After Election Day

Despite their glaring differences, the presidential candidates agree on this one issue: America’s crumbling and antiquated infrastructure must be fixed as soon as possible. Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has said, should she be elected, infrastructure funding will be a priority in her first 100 days as president. She has outlined a five-year, $275 billion plan that would create a new infrastructure bank, reauthorize a Build America Bonds program, and initiate business tax reform. While he hasn’t outlined the specifics of his plan, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has said he wants to spend “at least double” what Clinton has proposed to “build the next generation of roads, bridges, railways, tunnels, sea ports and airports.”
