The nation’s infrastructure is one of our greatest assets, as well as one of our most important responsibilities. As the system continues to age and reach the limits of its capacity, the federal government must provide leadership in developing a fully integrated, multi-modal system capable of providing for the mobility demands of the nation.  Investment can address many critical environmental and public health needs, by providing safe drinking water, improving water quality, and reducing mobile source emissions, among other benefits to our nation’s well-being.  Also, essential changes must take place within the federal government to ensure the future of its facilities program.
