Wahba’s suggestion is similar to what the president has been advocating for, which is that states take more responsibility for infrastructure projects that are regional in nature and not look to the federal government for a significant percentage of funding. And some states are doing just that. For instance, Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb on Tuesday announced that the state would make a $1 billion investment into infrastructure projects in 2019. The program includes at least $790 million to finish major highway projects and $20 million to add more international flights.
