After the Trumpquake, an infrastructure 'healing?’

Katie Thomson, chair of the firm’s Transportation Industry Group, was quoted regarding the 2016 election results and how they affect the transportation landscape in the article, “After the Trumpquake, an infrastructure 'healing'?,” published by Politico on November 10, 2016.

Congress has been stuck for years on how to pay for infrastructure projects. Having the same party in charge of the Congress and the White House certainly opens “the opportunity to solve a critical problem in a way that has lasting benefits and impact,” Ms. Thomson said.

She pointed out that generating reliable, recurring new revenues is something that has been out of reach for some time – through both Democratic and Republican administrations. “It's a political problem regardless of who's” in power, she said. “There's a fundamental unwillingness to make politically difficult choices.”
