Infrastructure 

 

The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) and the state's own capital construction program are making new investments in roads and bridges, broadband networks, rail and transit, and other public works. The Infrastructure Committee will examine job creation and long-term economic benefits of these programs and analyze the potential for other strategic investments in the state's infrastructure, with an eye to both need and affordability.
