Infrastructure is the foundation states are built upon. It impacts everything from economic development and global competitiveness to our quality of life, safety, environment, and resiliency. Governors have taken action to enhance infrastructure, including creating new and increasing existing funding streams, advancing public-private partnerships, addressing regulatory delays, improving transparency, and promoting innovation.
