ASCE Takes Report Card Grades and Solutions to Lieutenant Governors

How bad is our infrastructure? Probably worse than you ever imagined. The American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) has prepared an Infrastructure Report Card that details the problems the country faces with updating, restoring, improving and making our infrastructure safe with a state-by-state overview. (See link below) The association has been doing an infrastructure report card for some time and has provided the country with a realistic and serious look at the things we all take for granted,  our roads and bridges topping the list. Take the time to review the condition of your state’s infrastructure so that you can support efforts made to improve it.
ASCE participated last week in the National Lt. Governors Association annual State-Federal Relations meeting in Washington, DC. The seconds-in-command of the states and territories gathered in Washington D.C. March 15, 2017, to work on schools, roads, and more. Casey Dinges was on the agenda to talk to the Lt. Governors about the solutions offered in the 2017 Infrastructure Report Card. The meeting also focused on ideas on how to streamline state regulations, preserve international markets for agriculture, and assist veterans with health issues.
