Gov. Rendell Discusses National Infrastructure Bank

The Infrastructurist interviewed our very own Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell on his thoughts about the future of America’s infrastructure funding. The Governor discussed his views for creating a National Infrastructure Bank (NIB) that would finance merit-based infrastructure projects ranging from transportation to water, schools, and levies. His comments clear up some misconceptions about the role that the NIB would have in infrastructure funding (no, it wouldn’t fund all projects), the sources of the funding (both public and private), and the possibility of implementing a high-speed rail system across the nation (and its connection to air traffic control).
