America’s infrastructure is falling apart. In fact, The American Society of Civil Engineers gives the United States a D+ grade when assessing the state of our roads, airports, bridges, railways and other infrastructure elements. If America is to remain an economic powerhouse well into the future; it’s long past time that we as a nation invest in the revitalization our infrastructure in order to support the health of our people and our planet.
America needs work:
Establish legislation that funds a nationwide 10 year, $2 trillion, 100 percent green infrastructure revitalization plan.
Build a nation-wide high-capacity high-speed passenger rail system to meet needs of our growing population.
Build a 100 percent green-energy sector, transitioning us away from fossil fuels within the next decade.
Restore and protecting Net Neutrality.
Establish a public, high-speed broadband network in rural areas as well as underserved urban cities
Ensure health standards by repairing and maintaining America’s drinking-water infrastructure, including the million miles of pipes and mains beneath our streets.
Invest in America’s aviation infrastructure, including modernization of airports and runways.
