Don’t Expect Much Money for Infrastructure

In today’s Washington Post, Brian Lamee analyzes the impact of the election on U.S. Federal Government spending on civil engineering.

Here is the CliffsNotes version: “the architecture, engineering and construction industry shouldn’t expect much relief in the short-term as Obama alone can’t do much beyond his executive order and Congress is unlikely to move forward in an election year.

“In the longer term, however, growth driven by federal funding is almost certainly coming. After the elections, the next Congress may be forced to act, and the industry should position itself to grow quickly once funding is cleared.”
