In the face of ongoing uncertainty about the role of the federal government in solving the national infrastructure crisis, U.S. states and localities are stepping in with innovative solutions to these challenges.
The McGraw Hill Financial Global Institute and the Bipartisan Policy Center organized interactive panels and discussions on how to create a robust pipeline of investable infrastructure projects at the state and local level.
Speakers from the U.S. Department of the Treasury, Brookings, the American Enterprise Institute, CalSTRS, KPMG and others addressed topics including:
- Bridging the information gap: the importance of comparable data
- Approaches to leveraging private investment
- What works: state & local initiatives to improve infrastructure systems
