Seven things to know about President Trump’s budget proposal

Many people are worried about Trump’s new budget proposal. Will it hurt them? Exactly what will be cut or curtailed? This can be hard to get straight because lots of misinformation is being passed around on social media and elsewhere. These things may help you figure it all out for yourself.

Key Takeaways:

  • The short version is that President Trump’s first budget request for Congress is a direct assault on smart infrastructure investment that will do damage to cities and towns of all sizes.
  • This budget eliminates future funding for building new public transportation lines and service, threatening the ability of local communities of all sizes to satisfy the booming demand for well-connected locations served by transit.
  • With over $2 billion budgeted annually for this program over the last few years, it would take almost three years of continuing current funding for the program just to clear those projects and end the program.
