The Trump Administration has compiled a list of about 50 infrastructure projects nationwide — totaling more than $137 billion, which could represent the core of major of domestic spending in coming years.
The White House’s proposed investment priorities are outlined in documents obtained by McClatchy’s Kansas City Star and The News Tribune, published on Jan. 24, 2017.
The list is entitled “Emergency & National Security Projects,” and was reportedly shared with the National Governors Association in December requesting further suggestions. The letter from the Presidential Transition Team states that it is “looking for 3 to 5 project suggestions from each state that they would vet for inclusion in a new program.”
One project in Georgia currently appears on the list of proposed projects — acceleration of the Savannah Harbor Expansion project.
