Full Reveal of Trump’s Infrastructure Plan Raises Ire of Trucking and Highway Control Groups

On the heels of the leaked contents of President Trump's infrastructure plan and the increase of his funding goals as mentioned in his State of the Union address, the full reveal of the details has raised the ire of trucking and highway control groups alike.  While there are several areas of contention, by far the largest one is centered on how the plan will be funded.  As of this writing, President Trump noted that the federal government plans to invest just $200 billion total across all aspects of the plan -- not just those earmarked for highways.  It is the president's contention that this infusion of funds will be enough to prompt another $1.3 trillion of spending at the state and local level with the goal of improving the country's entire infrastructure system.
