The National Public Works Improvement Council must report to President Reagan and the Congress by early 1987 on ways to maintain and improve the nation's infrastructure. One of the biggest challenges the Council faces is how to focus public attention on infrastructure issues. (Recent U.S. research has focused on space, medicine and weaponry.) Other factors that the Council must address include technology transfer and coordination of research that applies to infrastructure, financing public works, and managing the needs, demands and means of financing public works.
