THIS IS THE LAST WEEKLY UPDATE ON THE 4 INITIATIVES OF THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION. WE EXPECT RELATIVELY SLOW PROGRESS ON THE UNFINISHED INITIATIVES. WE WILL REPORT ON CHANGES IF AND WHEN THEY OCCUR.
- Tax cuts and tax reforms benefiting most individuals and businesses. THE MOST SIGNIFICANT TAX LEGISLATION IN A GENERATION WAS SIGNED INTO LAW LAST YEAR. CUMULATIVE PROGRESS TOWARD GOAL: 100%
- Infrastructure spending of up to $1 Trillion over the upcoming 7 to 10 years. PROGRESS TOWARD GOAL: 20%. ON THURSDAY, A RUMOR CIRCULATED AROUND WASHINGTON INDICATING THE INFRASTRUCTURE BILL MAY NOT BE CONSIDERED IN 2018.
- Affordable Care Act amendment, reform or reorganization. THE TAX REFORM LAW REMOVED THE REQUIREMENT EACH INDIVIDUAL OBTAIN HEALTHCARE COVERAGE. PROGRESS TOWARD THIS GOAL IS 35%
