Certified cirus control systems designs and manufactures electronic spreader and plow control systems that provide solutions for a wide range of snow and ice control fleet management needs.
Cccs control systems are implemented by large fleets with hundreds of fully equipped snowplow trucks that patrol thousands of highway lane miles. The cccs product line also supports local municipalities with smaller plow trucks and miles of local roadways.
Senators charles schumer, bill nelson, patrick j. Leahy, ron Wyden, sherrod brown , maria cantwell, and thomas r. Carper, along with bernie sanders (ind.-vt), have unveiled a package that would have the federal government directly spend $1 trillion to upgrade the national infrastructure.
The proposal will address a number of infrastructure needs, including $210 billion to upgrade roads and bridges; $110 billion to repair water and sewer systems; $180 billion for railways and bus systems; $100 billion for energy infrastructure; $75 billion to fix schools; $20 billion to install more broadband capacity; $20 billion to go to public and tribal land maintenance; and $10 billion to upgrade veterans affairs hospitals.
“our urban and rural communities have their own unique set of infrastructure priorities, and this proposal would provide funding to address those needed upgrades that go beyond the traditional road and bridge repair,” schumer said. “each day, too many students attend school in buildings so decrepit the pipes leach lead into their drinking water, our country’s heroes sit in va hospitals that are crumbling beneath them, and millions in rural communities cannot kick-start local business because they lack access to the critical high-speed internet they need.”
President trump’s proposal focused more directly on offering tax credits to private firms interested in infrastructure projects with profit potential . Critics, including those democrats involved in the response plan, have said that a full tax credit plan will truly incentivize new projects that wouldn’t have happened otherwise and therefore induce builders to hire new workers. Thus the economic benefit of trump’s plan isn’t likely to appear.
Democrats will directly counter that structure. Trump’s plan has “got to be bold, large, it’s got to have new spending, new expenditures,” schumer told the washington post. “it can’t just be tax breaks because that won’t get enough done.”
The senators will propose paying for their plan by closing tax loopholes, although they have yet to go into specifics. States have submitted more than 300 transportation projects to be considered by president trump as he puts together a substantially large infrastructure bill.
The national governors association (nga), which was asked by the transition team in early december to start collecting the requests, says a total of 43 states and territories have weighed in so far. More states are expected to send in their infrastructure requests in the coming weeks.
Among those submitted are a mix of projects that would require direct federal funding and projects that could use public-private partnerships. The goal for the nga is to create a list of top-ranking projects that trump could choose from so that certain projects do not surpass others that may be a higher priority in a state.
Trump has repeatedly vowed to rebuild the nation’s crumbling roads, bridges and airports, but the president has not sketched out his infrastructure proposal in detail yet. Capitol hill lawmakers acknowledge that the timing of the bill may slip past trump’s first 100 days in office.
But there are signs that trump is still committed to advancing a major rebuilding package this year. Trump mentioned the issue in his inauguration speech and has put together a team lead by real estate developers richard lefrak and steven roth to start identifying which projects should be targeted under any infrastructure proposal.
