DemDaily: A Conversation: Infrastructure Bank and the Election

September 17, 2020

The crisis at hand: Not only is the nation reeling under the impact and mismanagement of the COVID crisis, but the economic fallout threatens to become a runaway train. We need a powerful financial driver which will rebuild the real industrial and manufacturing economy, and the most proven answer is a massive infrastructure program.

The Democratic Party Platform calls for the creation of a public Infrastructure Bank, dedicated to investments which would "build infrastructure projects of national or regional significance, including in rail and transit, clean energy and water infrastructure, broadband, and affordable housing. Projects that receive assistance from the bank will be required to follow Buy America and Buy Clean provisions, pay Davis-Bacon prevailing wages, utilize project labor agreements, and ensure employers remain neutral in workers' organizing efforts."

Join the Rhode Island Democratic Party, labor leaders, elected officials, economic and infrastructure experts for a virtual conversation on H.R. 6422, "The National Infrastructure Bank Act of 2020."

"The National Infrastructure Bank Act of 2020" (H.R. 6422) is sponsored by Congressman Danny Davis (IL)

The proposed National Infrastructure Bank is modeled on the principles of national banking developed first by Treasury Secretary Alexander Hamilton. Similar National Banks were successfully used by four great US Presidents to build our nation: George Washington, John Quincy Adams, Abraham Lincoln and Franklin Roosevelt
Rebuild Rural and Urban America: Learn how we can fix collapsing infrastructure and build new 21st century programs, including High Speed Rail, New Water Projects, and Universal Broadband, pay Davis-Bacon wages, and use American-made products -- at no cost to the taxpayer!
