Earl Adams: P-3 passed — now what? (access required)

The General Assembly took a big step toward solving the state’s infrastructure needs when it passed the governor’s Public Private Partnership bill during the 2013 session. As with all significant pieces of legislation, the hard part is now in implementing it, which includes the drafting of detailed regulations. With the estimated revenue the governor’s transportation package is expected to raise — roughly $3 billion over five years — it is imperative that state agencies embrace the full potential of P-3 projects and work quickly to get projects moving and shovels in the ground whether initiated by the state or otherwise.
