Last Thursday night, Transportation Deputy Secretary Jeffrey Rosen briefed state transportation officials, industry groups, union leaders, and other stakeholders on the details of the Trump administration’s yet-to-be-released infrastructure bill. That meeting followed a Thursday morning huddle on infrastructure between President Trump and a select group of House lawmakers that included two Democrats and three Republicans.

The most optimistic timelines being floated on Capitol Hill call for the law to be signed in 2018, with funds released in 2020.
