Congressional Panel on Public-Private Partnerships to Hear From Financial Sector in New York City
The U.S. House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee’s Special Panel on Public-Private Partnerships (P3s) will hold a roundtable policy discussion in New York City next week on the financial sector’s role and interest in participating in building various types of infrastructure projects in the United States.
The P3 Panel is chaired by U.S. Rep. John J. Duncan, Jr. (R-TN), and the Panel’s ranking member is U.S. Rep. Michael Capuano (D-MA). The Panel is tasked with examining the use of and opportunities for P3s across all modes of transportation, economic development, public buildings, water, and maritime infrastructure. Over the last several months, the Panel has explored the use of P3s by federal, state, and local governments to advance important infrastructure projects. At next week’s roundtable, the Panel will hear from the financial sector, which provides the equity and private sector debt that are critical components to financing packages.
The roundtable policy discussion on “Ways the Financial Community Can Invest in Infrastructure Using Public-Private Partnerships” is scheduled to begin at 10:00 a.m. on Monday, June 16, 2014 in Conference Room A, 6th Floor, Javitts Federal Building, 26 Federal Plaza, New York, New York.
