NATSO Analysis: Chairman Shuster Infrastructure Proposal

This week retiring House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee Chairman Bill Shuster (R-PA) released draft legislation outlining his vision for enhanced infrastructure investment. The draft legislation is designed to facilitate a process whereby the United States can recalibrate how it pays for infrastructure as it moves into the middle part of the 21st Century, while at the same time providing a mechanism to adequately fund such investment in the near-term as the process plays out. Although many stakeholders -- including NATSO -- object to certain provisions in the draft legislation, it nonetheless represents a important continuation of -- and positive shift in -- the discussion President Trump started when he released his own infrastructure proposal earlier this year.
