Next up from the Trump White House is the President’s promised $1 trillion infrastructure plan, expected to be a January release. But cities might not be getting as much as they think.

Trump made news over the holidays by halting the $13 billion Gateway tunnel financing to link New Jersey to Penn Station. It seems the White House didn’t like the proposed fty- fty split the Obama administration was o ering to build the mega-project.

The $1-trillion Trump infrastructure plan is expected to put up $200 billion in federal funds, and seek the other $800 Billion from states, cities and private sector partners. The approach was described earlier as a proposed 20-80 federal to local split, to ensure communities have skin in the game.
