Billions more for transportation?

TRG analyst Kathryn Thompson says the latest political posturing over infrastructure spending could push the conversation to a more productive place.
What does this all mean? Perhaps the biggest roadblock to transportation reauthorization debate has been lack of guidance from the White House. Durbin’s unique political position (i.e., Senate majority whip & close ties to Illinois based President Obama) could help bring to light to the Obama administration that the transportation bill is, in fact, a politically worthy cause to address sooner rather than later. Overall, it is clear that the pressure is mounting, driven by state DOTs, industry, and rising unemployment.
