Safeguarding Water Affordability
A New Model to Modernize U.S. Infrastructure
Congress can’t afford to put this off any longer. Our cities, our citizens, and our economy need safe, reliable infrastructure.
The dire state of America’s infrastructure is holding back economic growth, leaving communities vulnerable, and increasing the divide between rural and urban populations. We can no longer afford to wait. Everything from highways and bridges to water and wastewater systems is in need of repair. As more hybrids and electric vehicles hit the streets, cities grapple with ridesharing and alternative forms of transportation, and internet access becomes ever more essential, we must not just fix what’s broken but prepare for the future. And when it comes to affording it all, we’re going to have to get creative. There is not one solution that will work for both water systems and highways or that will help rural communities connect to the internet or urban areas manage unprecedented growth. All options – from public private partnerships to increased federal revenues – must be under consideration if we are to bring our infrastructure into the modern era.
