The Trump Affect on the Construction Industry…So Far
We are officially 11 days into the Trump Administration and the executive orders and legislative action have been on a rapid pace.
ConstructionDive.com takes a look at how Trump policy, proposed and otherwise, is affecting the construction industry.
The construction industry-related directives that have elicited the strongest reaction from the general public are those giving a push to U.S.-Mexico border wall construction as well as two controversial pipeline projects — the Dakota Access and the Keystone XL.
However, other moves by the Trump administration, including an order to fast-track future projects and the compilation of a list of infrastructure needs across the U.S., have the potential to significantly impact the construction industry going forward.
