  • create jobs and support businesses while improving the nation's global competitiveness by modernizing and strengthening our national infrastructure;
  • invest resources in transportation corridors that promote commerce and reduce congestion;
  • update and enhance the U.S. network of rail, dams, and ports;
  • develop innovative financing mechanisms for infrastructure to leverage federal funds with private sector partners;
  • invest in critical infrastructure to reduce energy waste and bolster investment in clean energy jobs and industries;
  • invest in clean energy technologies that help free the United States from its dependence on oil;
  • eliminate wasteful tax subsidies that promote pollution and fail to reduce our reliance on foreign oil;
  • spur innovation by facilitating the development of new cutting-edge broadband internet technology and improving internet access for all Americans;
  • modernize, renovate, and repair elementary and secondary school buildings in order to support improved educational outcomes;
  • invest in the nation's crumbling water infrastructure to protect public health and reduce pollution;
  • upgrade and repair the nation's system of flood protection infrastructure to protect public safety; and
  • invest in U.S. infrastructure to address vulnerabilities to natural disasters and the impacts of extreme weather.
