Trump signs bill with $10B increase in infrastructure spending his administration opposed - The Bond Buyer

March 27, 2018


WASHINGTON -- The $10 billion increase in infrastructure spending in the 2018 omnibus spending bill signed into law Friday by President Trump differs from his administration’s vision.


Trump said he signed the omnibus “as a matter of national security” while vowing to never sign another, promising to “bring down” the $1.3 trillion in overall funding in the future.


“There are a lot of things that I’m unhappy about in this bill,” Trump said without providing details. “There are a lot of things that we shouldn’t have had in this bill but we were in a sense forced if we wanted to build our military we were forced to have.”


The president urged both chambers of Congress to give him line-item veto authority and repeated his request for the Senate to end the filibuster rule that requires a 60-vote supermajority.
