Weekly Poll (9)


In the beginning of July, U.S. Customs and Border Protection and the Army Corps of Engineers awarded a $33 million contract for four miles of border wall work in Texas. Environmental regulations including the National Environmental Policy Act, the Endangered Species Act, the Federal Water Pollution Control Act and the Archeological Resources Protection Act, among others, for this section of work, were waived. Do you think this is the best policy to speed up the construction?


Last month a panel of judges from the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals rolled back an injunction that halted construction on the Keystone XL oil pipeline. According to the panel, the lawsuit was dismissed due to a new presidential permit. Do you expect we will see more exercises of presidential authority for pushes of this kind of infrastructure in the future?


Last month, President Donald J. Trump announced the lift of United States’ tariffs on steel and aluminum products for Canada and Mexico. Do you agree with this move?


At the end of April, President Trump and Democratic congressional leaders announced the agreement of a $2 trillion infrastructure plan. However, no agreements were made on how the plan would be paid for. In anticipation of what ideas will be brought to the table in the next bipartisan meeting, how do you think Congress will decide to fund this proposal?


Environmental Protection Agency officials have proposed to cut two programs that help much of the country with lead paint safety in order to comply with President Donald J. Trump’s budget cuts. Do you think states will be able to pick up the slack if these federal programs are cut?


Some local and state governments have moved to punish contractors involved with the potential construction of President Trump’s Mexican border wall by denying them contracts. Is this a fair move?


The Trump administration is looking to expand offshore drilling off of U.S. coastlines. Good idea or bad?


President Trump recently called on executive departments to identify regulations that might serve well to be repealed or modified. Will the coming regulation reduction be positive for the industry on the whole?


President-elect Trump announced a $1 trillion infrastructure improvement plan as part of his campaign, but some critics say that will be difficult to achieve. Do you think the plan will come together in 2017?
