Infrastructure is many things in politics.
I’ve seen it held up as a useless expense (remember the bridge to nowhere?) and also as a campaign promise (among many many others, from the current occupant of the White House.)
It’s very topical at the present time in the form of flood control, repairs, development, and climate change. A national wave of infrastructure building has been a good idea since at least the 90’s and I’m sure before, and since the post WW2 era, only halfheartedly implemented with ARRA.
If we’re interested in good ideas to take to voters in 2018, it seems to me the smart people here will have ideas to develop their own backyards. I know many of you, like me, take intense interest in the building up of the cities we live in. One of my dreams is to sell Arizona’s solar power to California and Utah, and even farther away using sunlight and chemistry to replace petrochemicals.
Consider yourselves challenged to give a positive perspective. Tell me your dreams of infrastructure!
