The largest pot of federal infrastructure funding flows from the Highway Trust Fund, which is set to run out of cash again in mid-2021, as the FAST Act expires. If Congress doesn’t act, current spending levels will require an average $20 billion in additional bailouts every year.
Finding a trust fund fix is key to sustainably funding our transportation programs, but it’s also only one part of the equation when the United States faces such massive infrastructure investment needs.
Please join us to hear from former Reps. Joe Crowley and Bill Shuster for their thoughts on how to fix the Highway Trust Fund. Members of BPC’s Executive Council on Infrastructure will also lead a panel discussion on how the private sector can complement these efforts by bringing private capital, innovation, and expertise to our nation’s transportation system.
