National Infrastructure Bank Proposals Keep Coming

Many in Congress think the President Obama’s I-Fund proposal falls short of what they’d like to see in a national infrastructure bank. (The I-Fund isn’t really a bank, but more of a competitive grant for transportation infrastructure.) Lawmakers from Connecticut in particular are pushing for a bank that would be capitalized by the government and run by an independent board. The bank would be authorized to finance a variety of infrastructure projects in addition to transportation. They’d like to see a bill pass this year.
