A Report From ASU Says The $3.5 Trillion Infrastructure Bill Could Mean More Than $115B For Arizona
Members of Congress continue to go back and forth on passing legislation that would put hundreds of billions of dollars toward infrastructure projects.
After a lot of negotiating and some reduction in just how much it would cost, that proposal received bipartisan support.
An even larger step that would add $3.5 trillion in spending over 10 years through budget reconciliation has run into delays, because no Republicans support it and it has reportedly led to Democratic intraparty squabbling.
But a new report by ASU’s Seidman Institute shows that, if that $3.5 trillion is implemented, Arizona’s economy would be helped significantly.
ASU Economist Dennis Hoffman led the study, and The Show spoke with him to learn some of its key takeaways.
