Our nation deserves better than D+ infrastructure

by
American Society of Civil Engineer

The American Society of Civil Engineers gave our nation’s infrastructure a cumulative grade of D+ in its latest report card, which includes categories like roads, bridges, drinking water pipes, the electric grid, and much more.

For too long, we have relied on past investments and not kept up with needed maintenance to keep these assets modern and reliable. States and cities have stretched their resources to complete projects, but federal funding has dwindled.

Now, the bill is overdue. Democrats, Republicans, and American voters agree – it’s time to invest in our infrastructure. The longer we delay, the more we all pay.
