This event has passed.

Both political parties understand that smart investments in infrastructure contribute to economic growth, job creation, and overall quality of life, but there are differing opinions on a new effort to modernize America’s transportation, water, broadband, and other infrastructure systems. With infrastructure emerging as a major agenda item for the new administration and Congress, can policymakers reconcile their varying priorities in a bipartisan package?

BPC hosted a discussion exploring the 2017 political landscape and the shared principles that should guide any new proposal.
