Our nation’s infrastructure has taken a back seat when it comes to a coronavirus relief bill. Despite our nation’s aging infrastructure, the need to fix our roads and bridges has been put off by policymakers. This is a problem that will not go away until our leaders take action.
“There are several major infrastructure projects that have been in development for years but have not been meaningfully advanced due to a lack of funding,” read an article in JD Supra in regards to passing a COVID-19 infrastructure bill.
With the next relief package up for debate, infrastructure is a topic that needs to be at a forefront. Not only would an infrastructure bill jump start the economy providing jobs for many, it would also have ever-lasting impacts, similar to the infrastructure investments our county made many years ago after the Great Depression.
