Our nation's infrastructure is on a dire verge of collapse. The American Society of Civil Engineers gave out a "D" average in its 2021 Report Card for America's Infrastructure. Here in the Central Valley, the highways and freeways that move people and goods and sustain our economy are crumbling with cracks, potholes, and neglect. Our water systems that provide for essential recreational and drinking water, irrigation, and sewage and waste disposal are way past overdue for maintenance and upgrades. We desperately need to invest in fixing and upgrading our infrastructure to meet carbon-free standards, create millions of good-paying jobs, spur our economy, and guarantee a better future.
