Statement by Philip K. Howard at the Forum “Rebuilding America: What Are We Waiting For?”

Common Good and the Progressive Policy Institute hosted an event on November 16, 2017 aimed at rekindling a sense of urgency around modernizing America’s deteriorating infrastructure.

The forum included remarks from Congressman John Delaney and Alex Herrgott of the White House Council on Environmental Quality as well as two panels of public policy and industry experts and former government officials.

Philip Howard addressed the forum and spoke of the need for both public funding from Congress for vital infrastructure projects and overhauling the environmental review permitting process. You can read his full remarks here.
