Kudlow to Newsmax: WH Might Pitch Infrastructure Plan in '19


John Gizzi By Wednesday, 03 April 2019 06:14 PM EDT Current | Bio | Archive

In sharp contrast to 2018, when White House press secretary Sarah Sanders told Newsmax the president would not have an infrastructure plan out, top White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow says one could be ready this year.

"We are developing an infrastructure plan; it could be [ready this year]," Kudlow told us at the Christian Science Monitor breakfast Wednesday morning in Washington, D.C.

Kudlow said he has met "with a number of committee chairman of both parties, in both houses [of Congress]. And we've talked about a lot of things and the discussions are ongoing – with respect to reauthorizing the highway bill and we also have some thoughts on infrastructure in energy sector."

"I know a lot of them — many were former guests on 'The Kudlow Report' [his long-running cable news show]," Kudlow said. "All people on 'The Kudlow Report' make well in life."

The White House adviser and former TV host pointed out "we will have an executive order unveiled in due course that will try to help our energy revolution and will open the door to additional pipelines and that sort."

Regarding how the infrastructure project would be paid for, Kudlow replied: "I haven't really priced it out, but we'll see."

"Revenue sources — their size and duration — I don't want to give any figures out because we're working with those folks and there will be a collaboration," he said.

Kudlow also credited President Trump for sticking to his vision of major infrastructure reform. In his words, "This is the most hands-on president you'll ever see, and I worked for two presidents, and was closely involved with another."
