State Infrastructure Institute Within USC's Lusk Center

Michael Keston discusses his endowment establishing an Infrastructure Institute at USC's Lusk Center.

California's existing infrastructure network is in dire need of maintenance and repair. At the same time, an expected influx of over ten million more people to California by 2010 signals a need to focus on the infrastructure required to accommodate the growth and maintain a high quality of life. Additionally, our political system provides a disincentive for politicians to invest time and energy to the solution of long-range infrastructure needs. To that end, Michael Keston and his wife have provided an endowment to the Lusk Center at the University of Southern California to create an institute solely dedicated to the infrastructure policy and solutions in California. MIR was pleased to sit down with Michael Keston to discuss the Keston Institute and the state of infrastructure planning in California.
