Recommendations to the Trump Administration Regarding National Infrastructure


The Construction Law Committee, Transportation Committee and Project Finance Committee sent a transition memo to the Trump Administration which addresses national infrastructure.  In response to the Administration’s stated commitment to infrastructure investment as a catalyst for economic growth, the memo offers recommendations to maximize both direct-funding and indirect-funding programs and to mobilize increased amounts of private sector investment in America’s infrastructure, including: (1) requiring quantitative and qualitative assessments as a condition to federal funding; (2) supporting the creation of “bankable” revenue streams through availability payments and similar programs; and (3) leveraging, improving and accelerating existing federal funding programs to support innovative infrastructure projects.
