SAM HALL: Waiting for Godot: Lawmakers, Trump and infrastructure
The latest idea to address Mississippi's desperate need for multimillion-dollar road and bridge upgrades is to wait and see what President Donald Trump unveils in his infrastructure initiative...
...Instead, we're left with the wait-and-see-if-the-federal-government-will-bail-us-out approach. The problem is that Trump's infrastructure plan likely is not going to be a workable solution for these specific needs.
It's important to note that no one — not even the Trump administration — knows exactly what the plan will entail. Trump touts it as $1 trillion in infrastructure improvements, though that's only the expected private investment.
