Bipartisan group of lawmakers offers ideas for infrastructure plan
The congressional Problem Solvers Caucus on Wednesday released a bipartisan report detailing policy suggestions for a future infrastructure plan.
The report, released by the caucus’s Infrastructure Working Group, proposes solutions on how to modernize U.S. infrastructure while maintaining environmental protections and bolstering the national security.
“Unfortunately, due to years of underinvestment and deferred maintenance, America is no longer keeping pace and continues to fall behind other countries,” the report says. “By some estimates, the funding gap may be as high as $2 trillion by 2025 across all sectors of American infrastructure.”
