WHY: Infrastructure matters to get California working again. Strong infrastructure is critical for fueling the economic engine of California. The Report Card recommends public policy options and funding needed to rehabilitate and revitalize the state’s infrastructure. Robust statewide infrastructure means a healthier economy, improved job base, and higher quality of life for residents.
The California Infrastructure Report Card, which is also supported by the American Public Works Association, University of California Irvine Civil & Environmental Engineering Affiliates, and the American Council of Engineering Companies, will assess the condition of our state’s infrastructure and offer potential public policy solutions. Will we make the grade?
