Big-Name Politicians Rally For Infrastructure

New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger rallied recently in California, calling on the federal government to do more to address the country's aging infrastructure.

"'Infrastructure isn't sexy or glamorous, and it doesn't make for great headlines,' Mr. Bloomberg said in Los Angeles, 'but it is one of the most important issues facing our country."

"'And make no mistake about it, we have an infrastructure crisis.'"

"Joined by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger of California, a Republican, and Gov. Edward G. Rendell of Pennsylvania, a Democrat, the mayor announced the creation of a nonpartisan organization that will advocate for more, and smarter, federal spending on infrastructure."
