Bloomberg and Green Party for rail: U.S. Must Modernize
Its Infrastructure, Invest In High-Speed
With GDP languishing and job-creation rates well below what’s needed
to put the economy back on track, the key to recovery lies with American infrastructure, says a green post partisan group
headed by Michael Bloomberg and Arnold Schwarzenegger.
U.S. infrastructure, far from being
the best in the world, is due for an overhaul, says the Building America’s Future Educational Fund, a Green coalition
that Bloomberg, the mayor of New York, and Schwarzenegger, the former governor of California, co-chair with former Pennsylvania

need to benchmark their total water and energy consumption. This is in an effort to see how much is used and how water consumption can be decreased and how buildings can become more
energy efficient. There are penalties associated with the law if these buildings do not comply with these laws.
