Nov. 30, 2015 – There has been very little serious talk on the presidential campaign trail about infrastructure spending. But Hillary Clinton's campaign said recently she would allocate $250 billion to direct investment by the federal government in crumbling roads, bridges, public transit and airports. An additional $25 billion would fund a national infrastructure bank. The bank would support $225 billion in loans intended to spur private investment in struggling projects, adding a total of $500 billion in new infrastructure funds into the economy, her campaign estimates. However if the six-year bill currently under debate by a joint House-Senate committee passes, that plan would not even be under consideration until the next presidential election cycle.
