In 2018, Congress plans to take up President Trump’s infrastructure plan. What are the current challenges to our country’s infrastructure? What is needed in an infrastructure reform bill? How can this be tackled in a fiscally sound manner?

Shane Vander Hart discusses this with Craig Stevens who is the spokesperson for Grow America’s Infrastructure Now (GAIN). He also served as a senior advisor to the Secretary of Energy during the Bush Administration. Stevens shares what he hopes to see coming out of Congress, as well as, whether or not our infrastructure is ready for the expected domestic crude oil production boom this year.
