Opinion - With the whirlwind election we just witnessed, now could not be a more critical time for us to join together from both sides of the aisle to get a big infrastructure bill passed. Florida is in a great time of need as we’ve seen an unprecedented amount of people flooding to our state as we’ve never seen before during this COVID 19 pandemic.
Single family, multi-family home sales and apartments are going up at a rapid pace and our roads simply cannot keep up with demand. We must all do our part encouraging elected officials to get something done quickly. New highways, road widening, and resurfacing projects are a critical need in our state not only to relieve congestion, but to create more jobs.
Infrastructure investment in the U.S. has long been a question of when and not if, and it appears that the time is now. Such spending will hopefully put millions of Americans back to work and create infrastructure that will provide decades of efficiency and utility. At the same time, given the challenges at the federal and municipal level, it is likely the private sector will be enticed to play a significant role. This could be a meaningful investment opportunity which individuals and their advisors should consider.
Let’s all work together as one team, unite, and get this passed.
