What is Trump’s Plan?

President-elect  Donald Trump proposes to rebuild America’s infrastructure by creating and fixing bridges, roads, ports, and other public projects using an investment plan of $1 trillion. If Trump’s plan gets approval from Congress, millions more contractors  will be put to work as more infrastructure is being built.

How does Trump’s plan help contractors?

Since the 2007-2008 recession, the amount of people working in the  contracting industry has dropped 25%. The drop in these types of  skilled labor shortages lead to an increase in construction costs since the demand for these workers is growing. With Trump’s design to build $1 trillion worth of public  infrastructure, comes a high demand for contractors to compete the projects. If Trump’s proposal passes, numerous work opportunities will be in store for general contractors and subcontractors.  The Miller Act requires that general contractors on all publicly funded projects post a performance and payment bond to ensure completion of the project.

Types of bonds necessary to work on public works projects:

  • Bid Bond
  • Performance Bond
  • Payment Bond
  • Supply Bond

*A complete description on these types of bonds can be located on our page.
