    Given the recent passage of a federal transportation funding bill during the last Congressional session, Republican control of the new Congress, and with a new presidential administration, what does the future of federal transportation policy hold? The Trump administration has discussed a $1 trillion-dollar transportation package and as we move into the fall of 2017, Congress is expected to begin work on a new transportation package. How might this discussion impact on our nation’s multimodal infrastructure and specifically Indiana’s transportation network? How will these changes impact Indiana’s transportation infrastructure needs?
