Finger on the Pulse: Infrastructure outlook under the Biden Administration with “Mr. Infrastructure” (Norman Anderson, CG-LA Infrastructure)

Jul 16, 2021

Washington CORE interviewed Norman Anderson, Chairman and CEO of CG-LA Infrastructure about the infrastructure outlook under the Biden administration. The discussion explored the political considerations surrounding Biden’s ambitious proposal, the American Jobs Plan, as well as an unprecedented amount of funds for infrastructure development from the leftover coronavirus stimulus. The discussion extended to the prospects of enhancing private sector participation in infrastructure finance, as well as opportunities to deliver substantial public benefits via electrification and digitization. Mr. Anderson also shared his view that there is a gap in infrastructure R&D on the federal level that could be filled via a program of national labs, which could also contribute to the competitiveness of the U.S infrastructure sector in emerging markets.
