Americans Realize Importance of Infrastructure
A recent survey by Kansas City headquartered architecture and engineering consulting firm HNTB found that, "Americans overwhelmingly believe the nation's infrastructure is crumbling and are willing to spend more of their tax dollars to fix it."
According to HNTB's press release about the America THINKS survey:
"...four in five (81 percent) Americans agree making sacrifices to pay for infrastructure improvements now will make the difference between a more prosperous or a more difficult future for the next generation. Almost seven in ten (68 percent) are willing to pay more taxes to support highway and bridge maintenance and new construction."
The survey also asked questions about how stimulus infrastructure funds should be spent and about preferences for how infrastructure funds should be raised. You might be surprised at the support for congestion priced toll roads.
