Infrastructure

Mike Bloomberg has been both a local and national leader on infrastructure. In New York City, Mike created the largest affordable housing, school construction and public hospital capital programs in the City’s long history. He championed the effort to construct the Third Water Tunnel and developed and implemented a plan to extend the 7 train, the first city-funded extension of the Subway in a half century. Under his leadership, the City acquired and developed more than 850 acres of new parkland across the five boroughs.

Along with Governors Ed Rendell (D-PA) and Arnold Schwarzenegger (R-CA), Mike created Building America's Future - a bipartisan coalition of elected officials dedicated to bringing about a new era of U.S. investment in infrastructure that enhances our nation's prosperity and quality of life.

Mike has been a leading advocate of creating an independent National Infrastructure Bank. In 2008, he delivered testimony to the U.S. Senate Committee on Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs urging Congress to rethink how the government invests in, rather than budgets for, infrastructure.
