Are we investing enough in infrastructure?
This Daily Circuit show was postponed due to the National Rifle Association news conference.
Improving our country's infrastructure is a huge project that requires money and political capital. But following natural disasters like Superstorm Sandy, it seems like an increasingly important endeavor.
Jay Cowles, president of Unity Avenue Associates and co-chairman of the Itasca Project's Transportation Initiative, will join The Daily Circuit Friday, Dec. 21 to discuss the challenges and benefits of investing in infrastructure in Minnesota and nationwide.
"Our region needs an aligned, integrated and comprehensive transportation system to drive economic competitiveness and quality of life," said Cowles in a Minneapolis Chamber of Commerce release.
Charlie Zelle, president and CEO of the Jefferson Lines bus company and named by Gov. Mark Dayton to lead the Department of Transportation, will also join the discussion.
