Expand public-private partnerships

Just like your home mortgage, long-term financing for infrastructure—bridges, roads, and other structures that last for decades—is a prudent investment. That’s why private investors are ready to step up and partner with the public sector to restore our crumbling transportation infrastructure, helping share risk and reduce long-term cost. O’Malley will leverage private investment by doubling the Transportation Infrastructure and Innovation Act program, a proven federal credit assistance program that supports complex or large-scale regional projects through low-cost and flexible loans. He will also reinstate, improve, and make permanent Build America Bonds to lower borrowing costs for state and local governments.
