The Trump administration has compiled a preliminary list of 50 high-priority “emergency and national security” infrastructure projects valued at more than $137 billion and has solicited the nation’s governors for input. 

On the list, which is nearly identical to an earlier draft sent to governors, projects are broken down according to cost, job creation and whether the project generates revenue. To be considered for inclusion on the list, projects must have either national security or emergency public safety implications, have 30 percent of design-engineering complete, be “shovel ready,” be a direct-job generator and have the potential to increase U.S. manufacturing.
