Question #16: What are your plans for fixing our infrastructure in Missouri and nationwide?
Infrastructure is the basic physical and organizational structures and facilities (e.g. buildings, roads, power supplies) needed for the operation of a society or enterprise.
Overhauling and revitalizing America's potholed roads, disheveled railways and creaking bridges is necessary. 73% of roads in Illinois and Connecticut are in poor or mediocre condition they have the worst roads in the nation. 70,000 bridges, are classified as being structurally deficient, according to the government.
Deteriorating infrastructure will cost trillions to fix. U.S. economy is expected to lose just under $4 trillion in GDP between 2016 and 2025 if investment gaps are not addressed. This could hit $14 trillion by 2040 if the nation's aging roads, railways and bridges are left to decay even further.
We need to streamline local permitting, favor the renovation of existing roads and prioritize new projects that can start quickly. We need to team-work to develop a strategy to fix this issue.
We need to use organizations that are coming up with new innovating ideas like Solar FREAKIN' Roadways!
When elected into office I will support bills that search for new ideas to our crumbling infrastructure. I will listen to people and their ideas. I will search for a solution.
I am running for office to be the change I want to see. Thank you for your support and VOTE. #VoteWisdom4Congress
