No Infrastructure Package in First 100 Days of Trump Presidency
The House Transportation Committee chairman delivered the news
According to a report, there will be no infrastructure package in the first 100 days of Donald Trumps’ presidency, breaking from a promise he made while campaigning. The news comes from Rep. Bill Shuster, R-Pennsylvania and House Transportation Committee chairman, who says not to expect details any time soon.
“We’re going to start to work on it, but first of all, you’ve got to figure out the pay for it, which will come, I believe, in the first 100 days. Then in the next second 100 days is when we’ll put together a big infrastructure package,” he said.
Trump’s campaign outlined infrastructure as its number 3 legislative priority initially.
