Webinar: What COVID-19 Stimulus Packages Promise for Infrastructure
With Congress scrambling to address unprecedented unemployment and an economy in free-fall, negotiations over stimulus packages present new possibilities for one of the Trump administration’s long-promised priorities: infrastructure. In this webinar, we will explore new and innovative policy approaches that will generate more value from existing U.S. infrastructure, including asset recycling and public-private partnerships. We will also discuss the role of infrastructure in economic stimulus, as well impact such proposals can be expected to have for the United States economy and workforce.
