REMINDER: July 10th, Washington DC – International Infrastructure Reception

Posted by Steve Anderson on Monday, July 9th, 2012

From Quarles & Brady LLP:
Domestic and International infrastructure takes center stage this week as industry and government officials gather in Washington, DC.
 The new focus on large development projects was sparked by a series of very recent legislative, court and global activities most notably:

  • Passage of the $150 Billion Surface Transportation Bill by a large bi-partisan majority of the House and Senate;
  • The Supreme Court ruling upholding the ACA healthcare law which is expected to spark investments in hospitals, labs, and other heath related projects;
  • The California legislature vote last week that approved $4.7 Billion in state funding for a high speed rail (HSR) system from San Francisco to Los Angeles, CA;
  • Washington Day of the UIC World Congress on HSR that opens Tuesday.

In light of these very recent and significant developments, we hope you (or your designee) can join us tomorrow as we salute the rapid advancement of global infrastructure, at the Washington, DC office of the law firm of Quarles & Brady LLP. from 6:00 – 8:00pm.

Let’s keep the momentum moving forward  as we boost the global economy with strategic investments in infrastructure that will create jobs, strengthen the financial sector and prepare us all for the technological advancements needed for decades to come!
