The conference sponsored by Borough President Scott Stringer will explore an independent bank that, on top of critical federal transportation funding, can leverage private sector funds to make certain major infrastructure projects a reality. President Obama has committed $30 billion toward creating a national infrastructure bank, but the same model could work on a regional or even state level.
Participants will include former Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell, Representative Steve Israel, Representative Jerrold Nadler, business leader Bernard Schwartz, Port Authority Executive Director Christopher Ward, New York Building Congress President Richard T. Anderson, New York State Public Service Commission Chairman Garry A. Brown, Citi Infrastructure Investors co-head Felicity B. Gates, and many more.
Monday, March 14, 2011, from 8:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
Baruch College’s William and Anita Newman Conference Center,
151 East 25th Street in Manhattan.
