One of the biggest promises of Donald Trump's campaign was to revitalize the Nation's roads, bridges, and airports.  The promise was to deliver an infrastructure rebuilding package for massive investments with estimated program costs to exceed $1 trillion.  The administration has indicated it will rely on the Public-Private Partnership model to a large degree to fund the improvements and States must identify priorities on projects that are in fact, ready to go. There is much discussion going on in Congress and the various professional groups as the administration's first budget has been submitted. But still no big plan. How are the capital programs and infrastructure plans of Massachusetts to be affected? The Legislative Update will include panelists from the State agencies that will discuss how the change in the federal plan could affect infrastructure programming in Massachusetts and if there have been any recent developments in the Capital Improvement Programs as a result. How the State is preparing will be key.
