Industry Execs, Experts: Private Sector Can Help Fill Infrastructure Funding Gap

Thursday, April 28, 2016

Washington, D.C. – As the nation faces $2 trillion in infrastructure needs, the Bipartisan Policy Center will host an event on Monday, May 16, to announce “A New American Model for Infrastructure Investment.”

The report, authored by BPC’s Executive Council on Infrastructure, will include recommendations to increase private investment in our nation’s crumbling roads, bridges, water systems, airports and civic buildings. The Executive Council on Infrastructure, a group of CEOs and executives, has been working over the past year to develop recommendations to overcome the legislative, financial and regulatory barriers that discourage private capital from investing in our nation’s infrastructure.

The report will be released as part of Infrastructure Week, a national week of events, education and advocacy efforts to elevate infrastructure as a critical issue impacting all Americans.
