Draft of the Trump Infrastructure Planned Leaked
Jonathan Swan has scooped everybody in the business by releasing a leaked draft of the Trump Administration's long-awaited infrastructure proposal.
Swan sought comment from the White House, but spokeswoman Lindsay Walters decline to comment.
Yonah Freemark is the first to provide commentary on the contents of the document, taking to Twitter to express concern about the funding formula proposed by the draft plan, among other insights. Other points Freemark picks up on include the draft's seeming support for New Starts (with limitations), value capture, Private Activity Bonds, and tolling of Interstate highways. Freemark's initial conclusion: "the administration's priority is in projects that can largely be funded with user fees, not on creating infrastructure for the public benefit."
