Infrastructure is the Building Blocks upon which our Future Leaders Stand
Southern Californians deserve better infrastructure and that is why it is essential that we know what the state is up to when it comes to roads and highways, airports and seaports, rail and transit, drinking and wastewater systems, internet, energy and tech-driven infrastructure.
Residents also deserve to live in an economy that provides safety, job creation, innovation and transparency.

What is Infrastructure and Why is it Important?
The water you use in your morning shower; the road you drive to work; the internet you access all day; the electricity to power your TV; and the bathwater you run for your child at night can be summed up in one word: infrastructure. It’s not incredibly sexy, but nothing essential is ever really considered super special.
With the unveiling of President Biden’s ambitious $2 trillion “American Jobs Plan” and Infrastructure Week quickly approaching May 10-14, it’s important to understand what infrastructure is and why everyone keeps talking about how important it is to our lives every day.

The future looks promising as the industry is expected to see 12% employment growth by 2026, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). Additionally, experts are applauding the federal government’s plans to increase investment in infrastructure construction in the coming years.
