A New National Plan

2008 marked the bicentennial of the Gallatin Plan, crafted by President Jefferson’s Secretary of the Treasury, Albert Gallatin, to develop the infrastructure needed by our fast-growing nation. This plan built on President Washington’s vision of connecting the interior settlements to the markets and ports of the East Coast with a network of roads and canals. 2008 also marked the centennial of the Roosevelt Plan (1908), which guided America’s infrastructure investments in the 19th and 20th centuries. These plans set the stage for two centuries of transportation advancesinfrastructure investment and environmental protection. Today, we need a new plan to rebuild and reinvest in America. 

One hundred years after the Gallatin Plan, President Theodore Roosevelt invited every state and territorial governor to join members of his Cabinet and Congress, professional organizations, and government bureaus in a National Conference at the White House to plan for the infrastructure needs for the 20th century.  This conference laid the groundwork for many of the critical investments initiated by President Franklin D. Roosevelt to jumpstart the nation’s recovery from the Great Depression.

A new national vision and plan is necessary to meet the challenges of the 21st century.

Helping Communities Combat Climate Change

Our country’s commitment to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions will require significant changes to our communities. The federal government can and should be a partner in this effort, through a variety of ways, including investing in transportation alternatives, providing incentives for affordable housing choices and better community design, and funding innovative pilot programs that add community value while reducing greenhouse gases. Congressman Blumenauer is introducing legislation to help communities address global warming through design and transportation improvements.

A Water Trust Fund

Our nation’s water infrastructure needs have grown while funding for clean water has declined.  The overall federal government contribution to total clean water spending has shrunk from 78% in 1978 to 3% today. The GAO, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the Congressional Budget Office, and the Water Infrastructure Network, have estimated that the nation faces a growing water infrastructure funding gap of between $300-500 billion between what is currently being spent and what must be spent over the next 20 years in order to upgrade our aging water infrastructure.

In order to meet the water infrastructure needs of our nation, Congressman Blumenauer is proposing draft legislation to create a Water Trust Fund. The mission of this trust fund is to provide a deficit-neutral, consistent and fire-walled source of revenue to states to support the replacement, repair, and rehabilitation of clean and drinking water infrastructure.

Reinstating the Superfund tax

The Superfund was designed in 1980 to provide money to cleanup sites where the responsible party was out of business or could not be identified. Before it expired in 1995, the money for the Superfund came through taxes on the polluters themselves. However, Congress has never reauthorized the tax, making the burden of funding cleanups of toxic waste sites fall on the shoulders of taxpaying Americans. It is time to make public health, not protection for polluters, a priority. With the reinstatement of the Superfund tax, the stable funds generated would ensure that cleanup efforts at large sites can be properly maintained, and the EPA would have more power to recover costs from liable parties in cleanups.

Why should the Superfund tax be reinstated?

  • Companies should clean up their own waste.
  • It is unfair to pass the burden onto taxpayers, who bear no responsibility.
  • Without reauthorization, millions of Americans will be needlessly exposed to toxic waste while industries escape $1 billion in pollution taxes.
  • Polluters should pay for any efforts that are needed to address the problems they create.
  • It’s time to put the burden back where it belongs: on polluters.
