Industry News – Executive Council on Infrastructure Formed to Redress Funding Gap

The Bi-Partisan Policy Center recently formed a new Executive Council on Infrastructure. Their goal is to connect the private sector funding to U.S infrastructure, which could free up billions of dollars to fund the many projects that require urgent remediation across the country.

The Council has pointed out the growing deficit in what the U.S. spends on infrastructure versus that of countries with which we compete. According to the U.S. Treasury Department, the American government’s investment in infrastructure as a percentage of economic output has fallen by 50 percent in the last 50 years.

The Council will also examine legislative and regulatory barriers to entry for interested businesses and explore ways to overcome them.
