Infrastructure Enters United States Presidential Race

Infrastructure is often relegated to the back pages of newspapers, but today something exciting is happening in the U.S. presidential race that might change that. Hillary Clinton, Democratic frontrunner, said during a speech that she would boost federal infrastructure investment by $250 billion over the next five years and add another $25 billion to a national infrastructure bank.

Here’s a key infrastructure united states presidential racequote from her speech, via Daily Kos:

“To build a strong economy for our future, we must start by building strong infrastructure today,”
Clinton said flanked by paintings of Daniel Webster, Samuel Adams and George Washington. “I want our cities to be in the forefront of cities anywhere in the world. I want our workers to be the most compet
itive and productive in the world. I want us, once again, to think big and look up, beyond the horizon of what is possible in America.”

The former secretary of state teased that the plan would also call for universal broadband by 2020, more focus on creating a clean energy grid and bringing back Build America bonds, municipal bonds that were used during to fund infrastructure projects during the Great Recession in 2009.

This is the kind of news that really gets investors excited. Let’s see if Donald Trump or any of the Republican candidates have something to say on the same topic.
