ASCE Report Card Comes Out Tomorrow!

Tomorrow (January 28), the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) presents the U.S. with its infrastructure report card. Something tells me we won’t be seeing our name in the paper when the honor roll is published.

The full House is expected to begin debate on the proposed infrastructure bill either today or tomorrow. The timing couldn’t be better for the pro-infrastructure forces –as the ASCE releases the type of grades you’d expect from a Delta House pledge, Congresswomen and Congressmen will determine how much of the federal investment in the stimulus bill will go to infrastructure projects such as roads, transit, and public works. Expect the ASCE to get some “face time” on C-Span this week.

By the way, the ASCE is releasing the report card two months early. Probably not a coincidence.
