First Glance at Proposed Spending by the Administration on Infrastructure


Although the final plan and expenditures have not been revealed, initial information suggests the following projects:


  • $85 billion for public transit
  • $80 billion to modernize the northeastern Amtrak corridor
  • $174 billion for approximately half a million electric vehicle charging stations and electrifying school buses and federal vehicles
  • $25 billion for air travel and airports
  • $17 billion for waterways to coastal ports


With respect to the broiler industry, waterway improvements and roads will benefit the availability of ingredients and distribution of product.  Injecting anywhere between $1 and $3 billion into the economy will certainly create new jobs and boost demand through an improvement in the economy.
