White House to unveil $1.5tn infrastructure plan

Budget director warns interest rates may 'spike' on deficit

White House to increase spending in FY 2019 budget to be released Monday

The $200 billion infrastructure plan that President Donald Trump is to unveil Monday as part of his proposed 2019 budget would, as expected, force NY and New Jersey to scramble for private investors to fund the Gateway transit program.

But the Trump administration is rejecting that plan and the frustrated project developer is waiting to hear whether a deal can be reached, CBS2's Janelle Burrell reported.

The second piece of the infrastructure proposal is streamlining what the White House calls a "broken permit process"-a byzantine system of duplicative and lengthy studies that seemed created to impede, rather than approve, federally-funded infrastructure projects". Congress has talked for years about developing a new infrastructure plan, but lawmakers have been unable to come to terms about how to pay for such plans.

Trump's budget proposal includes $23 billion to fund the president's proposed southern border wall and other border security initiatives, including $782 million to hire an additional 2,750 border patrol agents and Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers. The groups included the National Association of Counties, National Governors Association, the National League of Cities and U.S. Conference of Mayors, as well as associations for transportation officials and local engineers.

Trump's program will be debated by six committees in the House and five in the Senate. The caucus includes more than 40 of the most conservative House members.

Congress could still develop its own funding.

Facebook and Google have dominated the online ad market for years, thanks to their massive reach and vast amounts of data. Facebook also revealed that users are spending less time on its network after it chose to show fewer viral videos.

But the Trump administration has deemed the Obama agreement as "nonexistent".

The last $10 billion would go to a capital financing fund divvied up by Congress. But lawmakers have not found a long-term solution for keeping the trust fund solvent, such as raising the 18.4-cent-per-gallon tax on gasoline, which was last raised in 1993. Amtrak recently announced a record year for ridership. "And yes, we want to ensure greater accountability so taxpayers understand the benefits they are actually receiving for their billions of dollars".

The president, who plans to invite Democrats and Republicans to the White House this week to call for a sweeping bipartisan infrastructure initiative, will propose to devote a total of $200 billion in federal dollars to the program, according to senior White House officials who previewed the plan. The precise trade-offs aren't designated.

The federal government traditionally provided 80% of funding for qualified highway construction.

The plan will aim for $1.5 trillion in investments through $200 billion in new federal funds. "So the rural program does that".

"This is not a partisan issue", a White House official said. "Well, because they've got a lot of skin in the game on the project".

The FY 2018 budget would earmark approximately $629 billion for base defense budget and about $71 billion for overseas war funds in Afghanistan and other countries.

In addition, it will request $85.5 billion for veterans' health, the administration said. But they wouldn't be financially justifiable everywhere.

The budget is expected to target spending cuts at social welfare programs such as Medicaid and the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, large segments of government spending that have always been eyed by Republicans for cuts.

"And I can tell you that that's not the choice that many of us on Capitol Hill believed was before us", Meadows added. That would prevent federal agencies from second-guessing each other and drawing out the approval processes.
