The BPC’s Executive Council on Infrastructure, a group of corporate CEOs and executives, has been working over the past year to identify a new model for infrastructure investment. The United States needs a renewed approach that addresses the pervasive under-appreciation of future infrastructure liabilities, ensures local communities have tools at the ready to make needed investments, and increases the flow of private capital into projects, all while securing critical long-term public benefits.

We have an extraordinary opportunity in America to upgrade, modernize, and expand our nation’s infrastructure—roads, bridges, rail, water and wastewater systems, airports, and civic buildings—with private capital available and ready to invest. Public resources are not enough, and the consequences of inaction are too high.
