CG/LA Infrastructure's InfraBlog
March 18, 2013
America’s state legislatures are on the front lines of governance; when the federal government holds back on infrastructure, state legislators must explain to constituents why their bridges need repair and why local businesses struggle to ship raw materials in and finished goods out to world markets.
So when I spoke to the leaders of the National Conference of State Legislatures last week, they wanted to know what kind of support they could expect from the Obama Administration and Congress to help their residents get where they need to go safely and conveniently–and to help their states’ businesses remain competitive in the global economy.
