U.S. Infrastructure Needs More Creative Financing

April 10, 2012

To create jobs and further economic progress, the U.S. needs to develop and adopt "creative financing solutions" to adequately fund infrastructure repair and rebuilding, writes Scott Thomasson, president of NewBuild Strategies.

States should be given "alternative financing sources -- public-private partnerships, tolling and user fees, and low-cost borrowing through innovative credit and bond programs," he suggests in The Hill's Congress Blog.
