The United States continues to grapple with its aging and outdated infrastructure, as the current pace of construction and improvements is nowhere near the level recommended by the American Society of Civil Engineers.
According to Bloomberg Intelligence analysts, transportation construction is at the top of the list in terms of U.S. infrastructure improvement needs. The analysts estimate that the U.S. government could spend as much as $306 billion annually in the next ten years, compared to $245 billion in 2016. However, the American Society of Civil Engineers estimate that $454 billion in annual spending will be needed to fully repair our aging bridges, highways, and other transportation infrastructure.
Republicans and Democrats Battle For Viable Infrastructure Improvement Plans
Both U.S. political parties stand united in the realization that it is time to get serious on improving American infrastructure, but they strongly differ in the execution of the projects.
In February 2018, President Trump veiled his $1.5 trillion infrastructure plan. The plan calls for $200 billion in direct federal funding with local, state and private investment picking up the remainder of the tab. The president’s plan also features sweeping regulatory changes to permit application and review process.
“What we really want to do is provide opportunities for state and local governments to receive federal funding when they’re doing what’s politically hard, and increasing investment in infrastructure,” detailed DJ Gribbin, the president’s special assistant for infrastructure.
On March 7, 2018, Senate Democrats unveiled their own $1 trillion infrastructure plan. The “Jobs & Infrastructure Plan for America’s Workers” would allocate $140 billion for road and bridge repairs, $115 billion for water and sewage modernization, $50 billion to rebuild schools, and $40 billion for airport and airspace projects.
However, the Democrats’ plan calls for the rolling back of the recently enacted Trump tax cuts. Among other things it would reinstate the top income tax rate of 39.60%, individual alternative minimum tax for wealthy Americans, estate tax, and increase corporate tax rates to 25%. Experts do not see this version moving forward, as the Democrats are still a minority within Congress.
As Congress continues to battle over the specifics of an infrastructure upgrade plan, Social Detention, Inc. (OTC Pink: SODE) is one stock that will be a major beneficiary.
