An Urgent Need To Invest In America's Infrastructure

Federal and state governments are responsible for committing consistent and reliable funding streams to support key infrastructure projects and to enact policies that better enable the private sector to invest in significant infrastructure initiatives.

If infrastructure policies and funding levels remain at their recent levels, national congestion costs will grow from $160 billion in 2014 to $192 billion in 2020 (2014 dollars).

Congress must ultimately come up with a long-term solution to shore up federal trust funds that support highways, inland waterways and ports. America’s economy depends on it.
