American Society of Civil Engineers' Klotz discusses new report on nation's infrastructure
As the Senate debates stimulus provisions, a major component of the final bill will be infrastructure investments. Last week, the American Society of Civil Engineers released a report rating the nation's infrastructure. The overall grade was a "D." The report recommends that the nation invest $2.2 trillion in infrastructure projects over the next five years. Does the stimulus provide a good starting point? During today's OnPoint, D. Wayne Klotz, president of the American Society of Civil Engineers, discusses the report and explains why infrastructure funding should play a larger role in the final stimulus bill.
