Federal leaders recently visited Texas A&M University to discuss the future of infrastructure in the United States. A hot-topic of conversation was the use of public-private partnerships to create more cost-effective solutions.
U.S. Rep. Bill Shuster, R-Pa., and U.S. Department of Transportation’s Finch Fulton introduced the conversation about P3s and their role as an efficient funding alternative.
