On April 30, President Donald Trump, Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and Senate Minority Leader met at the White House to discuss a prospective infrastructure package. This discussion is the first step towards a bipartisan infrastructure proposal. We urge you to reach out to your Members of Congress and ask them to reach across the aisle to develop and pass a infrastructure bill this Congress.
This is in line with ASCE’s recommendations to raise the grades in the 2017 Infrastructure Report Card. Simply stated, our infrastructure requires increased funding, leadership, and a commitment to making good ideas a reality. In addition to the Report Card’s solutions, ASCE specifically offered Principles for Infrastructure Investment that should be used as guiding principles for a federal infrastructure package.
We can no longer afford to defer investment in our nation’s infrastructure. To close the $2.0 trillion 10-year investment gap, meet future need, and restore our global competitive advantage, we must increase investment from all levels of government and the private sector from 2.5% to 3.5% of U.S.
We need you to reach out to your Members of Congress to urge them to put forward a long-term plan to improve our infrastructure systems.
