Risky business: As some major contractors pull back from P3s, others embrace the approach
from Construction Dive
When President Donald Trump announced his campaign pledge to upgrade the country's infrastructure, he endorsed public-private partnerships (P3s) as a way to help finance and build the $1 trillion worth of projects subject to his proposal. He said he would leverage the power of P3s to turn $200 billion of public dollars into $1 trillion of investment, refurbishing crumbling infrastructure without emptying public coffers. But just a year later, he had soured on the idea, telling a group of legislators in 2017 that private financing of public infrastructure isn't likely to work and that P3s are "more trouble than they're worth."
