President Donald Trump’s administration is expected to unveil its $1 trillion infrastructure plan on Wednesday, according to the White House.
Trump has been reluctant to commit to infrastructure spending since his election in November.
While the plan includes more than $100 billion for infrastructure in 2020, many states have said they are already on the hook for more than half of the cost.
States will get $50 billion from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to help finance the project, according, the White Street Journal reports.
The plan also includes $500 billion for roads and bridges, $1.6 trillion for the power grid, and $1 billion for the National Flood Insurance Program, which pays flood victims and coastal communities for damage.
States have until the end of January to submit a detailed plan for their infrastructure investments.
Trump said during his presidential campaign that he would be willing to make up for lost federal funds by paying states more for the projects.
“We are going to make them pay for it,” Trump said.
“And if they don’t pay, I’m going to do what I can to make it up.”
Trump has said the federal government has lost $3 trillion over the last four years, but there are many questions about the plan.
A key question is how much of the money will be earmarked for infrastructure, and whether Trump would be able to offset the loss by increasing taxes.
