Governor Kitzhaber says President's Build America Infrastructure Initiative innovative step forward

​(Salem, OR) — Oregon applauds the President’s new “Build America Infrastructure Initiative” announced today. We look forward to working with the new federal inter-agency work group, both here in Oregon and through our three-state partnership, the West Coast Infrastructure Exchange (WCX).

The WCX was created to introduce innovative financing methods to publicly owned infrastructure projects by tapping the financing and development expertise of the private sector to help stretch the capacity of public dollars for critical infrastructure projects like water supply and climate resilience.

Region-level partnerships with federal agencies helps expand our joint capabilities, and accelerates the number of investable, climate-smart infrastructure projects.
