  • Amid the tightening budgets and partisan gridlock in Washington, how can we convince our political leaders to devote resources to renewing and revitalizing the nation's aging infrastructure?

    On September 30, 2013, as part of The Atlantic's conference: Infrastructure 2.0: Investing in the Technology of Tomorrow, Third Way's Bernard L. Schwartz Initiative on American Economic Policy and the American Enterprise Institute examined the newest policy solutions that could transform the infrastructure arena, including Rep. John Delaney's infrastructure fund in the Partnership to Build America Act, expanding public-private partnerships, and the ever-increasing role of states.

    Panelists included Congressman John Delaney (MD-06), Janet Kavinoky, Executive Director, Transportation and Infrastructure, U.S. Chamber of Commerce, and Ron DeFeo, Chairman & CEO, Terex Corporation
