This report identifies the states most pressing infrastructure problems and shows how policymakers can address them more effectively. In particular, it analyzes the issues and opportunities confronting three of the states major infrastructure responsibilities-education, water, and transportation-and identifies a range of policy tools that can be used to improve infrastructure service delivery. After surveying the key institutions in each sector, the authors offer a list of recommendations for addressing the states infrastructure challenges. They also suggest a three-step approach to implementing these recommendations: immediate measures to relieve costly congestion and infrastructure impaction; near-term efforts to address infrastructure service shortfalls; and a long-term overhaul to remove structural and institutional impediments to infrastructure provision.
