The American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) is releasing a seminal economic report that quantifies how the persistent failure to invest in our aging infrastructure impacts the economy, including GDP, jobs, personal disposable income, and business sales at a virtual press conference on Tuesday, January 12, 2021. The report, Failure to Act: Economic Impacts of Status Quo Investment Across Infrastructure Systems, compares current and projected needs for infrastructure investment against the current funding trends in surface transportation (highways, bridges, rail, transit); water and wastewater; electricity; airports; seaports and inland waterways.
Confirmed panel participants include:
• Tom Smith, Executive Director, American Society of Civil Engineers;
• U.S. Congressman Earl Blumenauer (D-OR)
• Leon Topalian, CEO, Nucor
*Additional speakers may be announced
