Trump's 200 Billion Dollar Plan: What does it mean for the near future of Capital Projects?

President Trump made news recently by announcing some important details of his infrastructure plan during his budget request in May. The rebuilding plan will allocate 200 billion dollars into capital construction projects over the next decade, with the big picture goal of creating a 1 trillion-dollar investment in capital projects.

This is major news for the many government, healthcare, and educational institutions across the nation that will be undertaking capital improvement projects.
