Summary by Dirk Langeveld
As Washington begins to deliberate over a $2.3 infrastructure proposal put forward by the Biden administration, a set of panel discussions will look at infrastructure needs, challenges, and opportunities in New England.
The New England Council will be hosting a series of virtual programs on the topic this spring and into the early summer. “Investing in Infrastructure” will look at the region’s infrastructure needs, types of federal investment needed to address them, and how such investments would affect the New England economy.
Each panel discussion will feature representatives from New England Council member organizations. The discussions will include the key challenges and needs the organizations see in the region.
The free series begins with a panel on transportation infrastructure at 1 p.m. on April 27. Subsequent panels, to take place over the following two months, will focus on energy, innovation, and financing options.
