ACCE Webmaster on Saturday, December 6, 2008 at 1:03:44 am

Is extensive infrastructure investment the answer (or at least part of the answer) to America's economy? 

Thousands of highway, bridge, transit, and public building projects are ready to go pending funding.  A massive federal infrastructure investment could create the short term construction jobs and economic ripple effect that would jump start the economy and better equip our regions to succeed in the long run.  But there are some issues.  For example, would projects win funding based on urgency of need or broader national priorities?  Will a national organization allocate funding directly to local MPOs, or would state DOTs be left to decide?

Columnist Neal Pierce addresses all these questions and more in his latest Citiwire.net installment: Finally a Green Light For Smart Infrastructure?

Take a read, this is an issue we all need to think about.  Quickly!
