Abstract: Determining the nationwide infrastructure needs and identifying the organizations responsible for this assessment are complex processes. Yet, if this nation is to have an organized, orderly approach to the allocation and expenditure of hundreds of billions of dollars for building, maintaining, and improving the infrastructure, then it is essential that a more sophisticated and effective process be devised than is currently being utilized. The author recommends an infrastructure planning process, which, among other things, would analyze the critical issues and develop policies responsive to them.
