ASCE Announces Early Release of 2009 Report Card for America’s Infrastructure

This was sent to ASCE members this morning:

Dear ASCE Member,

Infrastructure is receiving unprecedented attention from President-elect Obama, the U.S. Congress, and the media. ASCE finds itself at a crucial moment to spread our message and participate in the dialog regarding infrastructure improvements.

Yesterday, the House Appropriations Committee released a summary of the House Democratic Leadership’s proposed economic stimulus package, the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. Included in the infrastructure and science portions are many of ASCE’s priority issues. For details on the package, visit ASCE’s Government Relations blog.

On January 28, 2009, ASCE will issue important components of our 2009 Report Card for America’s Infrastructure, including letter grades with short conditions summaries for each of 15 categories, solutions for infrastructure improvement, and an overall cost to improve the nation’s infrastructure. The nation’s leaders rely on ASCE to provide expert advice on the condition of the nation’s infrastructure. Early release of the 2009 Report Card is essential to fulfilling that role.

The Report Card will be launched during a press conference in Washington, D.C. You are invited to watch the press conference via a live Webcast.

The full 2009 Report Card for America’s Infrastructure, including detailed fact sheets on all categories and state-by-state information, will be released on March 25, 2009, as previously scheduled.

Take Action Now! Help us spread this message far and wide!

We ask all members to watch ASCE publications for regular updates on the Report Card effort.

Information on previous Report Cards is available online at www.asce.org/reportcard. If you have a question or are looking for more information, send an email to reportcard@asce.org.

If you have not already, renew your 2009 ASCE membership to support the fight to renew our nation’s infrastructure.
