Shant Boyajian Discusses Impact of Infrastructure Bill on P3s
Shant Boyajian was quoted in The Bond Buyer article, “Infrastructure bill would encourage more P3s in the United States” (subscription required). The article provides an overview of how the bipartisan bill currently being debated by Congress would encourage state and local governments to think about employing public-private partnerships (P3s) for complex projects, such as rural broadband or large-scale transportation developments.
Commenting on the topic, Shant said, “The P3 sector would enjoy an immediate boost just from the size of the package.” He added, “The mere fact that these infrastructure bills are talking about spending north of $1 trillion over the next five years, that in itself will be the most significant driver of additional P3 projects. If there's more infrastructure spending going out the door, that's going to mean more P3 projects.”
