    Saturday, December 31, 2016

    President-elect Trump is reported to be creating a task force to implement his campaign promise to increase infrastructure spending. After reviewing his website, we like reading about a “deficit-neutral plan… that supports investments in transportation, clean water, a modern and reliable electricity grid, telecommunications, security infrastructure, and other pressing domestic infrastructure needs.”
