Senators Jim Talent of Missouri and Ron Wyden of Oregon introduced a legislation that would establish a federally chartered, nonprofit entity that would be authorized to issue 50 billion dollar of taxable tax-credit bonds to finance transportation infrastructure projects. The measure would finance road, transit, rail, airport, seaport, and waterway projects. One reason Talent expects a favorable reaction from the bond market is that the legislation would allow the tax credit to be separated from the underlying bond principal and the components to be traded separately.
