The Portland Cement Association (PCA) issued the following statement in response to publication of the American Council for Capital Formation’s (ACCF) new study, “How to Shape U.S. Infrastructure Policy.”

“America deserves world-class infrastructure, and to get there we need to change our thinking to include not just how best to fund it, but also how best to spend it,” said PCA President and CEO Michael Ireland. “This report highlights the importance of life-cycle cost analysis and competition in paving – something that over the years has faded from infrastructure policy discussions. If federal and state decision makers took this report as a playbook, America would see tremendous taxpayer cost savings and stronger infrastructure built to last long into the future.”
