A Bank to Re-Build America?

June 8, 2011
Washington, DC

Senators John Kerry (D-MA) and Kay Bailey Hutchison (R-TX), co-sponsors of the bi-partisan "Build Act," convened for a conference on what an infrastructure bank would mean for America, how the bank would work, and why they believe such an institution would create jobs and help American business and labor.

The conference also featured prominent voices such as Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro, Carlyle Group managing director Robert Dove, international finance expert Heidi Crebo-Rediker and Economic Growth Program Director Sherle R. Schwenninger as well as representatives from labor and the Chamber of Commerce, and was chaired by Steve Clemons, Editor-in-Chief of AtlanticLIVE.
