US presidential candidates to invest in infrastructure

Both US presidential candidates want to spend billions on transportation infrastructure to create jobs and spur economic growth.

“It is good to see that these two candidates can agree on one thing. There is no doubt that improving roads, bridges and highways allows for more efficient and effective commerce and more jobs for hard-working Americans,” said Michael W. Johnson, NSSGA president and CEO. “America is doing well when the aggregates industry is doing well, and that’s because we’re building up our infrastructure and our economy.”

Clinton has a plan to invest US$275 billion over five years on infrastructure projects. Trump has said that he would spend up to $1 trillion, according to The Atlantic.

“The effects of infrastructure projects are myriad,” said Yahoo Finance Editor-in-Chief Andy Serwer. “Not only are you actually fixing the airports and the roads and the bridges, but then you’re creating jobs and stimulating the economy.”
