Governor Hogan led a virtual infrastructure summit with a bipartisan group of governors yesterday. Governor Hogan was joined by Arizona Governor Doug Ducey, Montana Governor Steve Bullock, Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards, Wyoming Governor Mark Gordon and Virginia Governor Ralph Northam to discuss opportunities for public-private partnerships to finance and maintain vital infrastructure.
As Fox News highlighted in a recent profile, as chair of the nation’s governors, Governor Hogan is leading a year-long initiative focused on rebuilding America’s infrastructure. Governor Hogan has led summits in San Francisco, Detroit, Boston, and Australia to study and highlight best practices for infrastructure development.
This summit comes on the heels of a new report from Moody’s Analytics warning that “if Washington doesn’t deliver several hundred billion dollars in budget relief to states and local governments” it could cost another 4 million jobs, devastating the economic recovery. With the economic recovery at risk without urgent action, Governor Hogan is leading the bipartisan effort to put Americans back to work through emergency relief for states and a national infrastructure plan.
