The Trump administration should make infrastructure investment a priority, a Class I railroad executive told a U.S. port conference.

Leading Washington’s to-do list should be infrastructure investment; some form of deregulation of business, and tax reform, said Darrell Wilson, assistant vice president of government relations for Norfolk Southern Corp.

Wilson’s comments came during a panel session at the Jaxport Logistics & Intermodal Conference in Jacksonville and reported by the American Journal of Transportation.

The panel cautioned against Trump’s calls for out-and-out protectionism, but Wilson agreed that domestic business could benefit if the North American Free-Trade Agreement was renegotiated.
