Transportation and Infrastructure

Success in our highly competitive global economy depends on the safe, rapid, and efficient movement of people and freight. Technology has made it possible to order a product online and have it delivered from halfway across the country to your doorstep within hours. At the same time, innovations like self-driving vehicles, autonomous drones, and ride-hailing apps promise to deliver untold levels of both progress and disruption. But these developments are threatened by the sorry state of our infrastructure and by the career politicians’ unwillingness to make tough decisions. We have a once in a generation opportunity to leverage private and public investment to design a new transportation policy framework that will do for the 21st century what Eisenhower’s Interstate Highway System did for the 20th. Fixing our broken transportation system is an important part of returning America to economic growth, prosperity, and global leadership.
