  • Expert: Public-private partnerships are key in infrastructure upgrades
    The public and private sectors can develop partnerships to enable government agencies to finance repairs of infrastructure estimated at $2.2 trillion, said Geoff Heekin of Aon Risk Solutions. The partnership would allow the transfer of asset-performance and other risks to private firms while the public sector deals with such risks as taxation and terrorism, said Heekin, who added that the objective is "to align each risk element with the party best able to manage the risk."

  • Analysis: Teachers' pensions are underfunded in most states
    Pension funds for teachers in a majority of states are underfunded, according to an analysis by the National Council on Teacher Quality. The shortfall -- expected to worsen as more baby boomers retire -- has some states considering shifting teachers from traditional pension systems to 401(k) retirement plans. Other options being considered in some states include raising the age at which teachers can retire with their full pension and requiring teachers to work for a decade before becoming vested.

  • Bill to revamp highway, transportation programs clears Senate
    The Senate has approved legislation that would revamp the U.S.'s transportation programs and extend the government's authority to impose gasoline and diesel taxes that are scheduled to expire March 31. The bill would allocate $109 billion for highway and transit programs over two years, but the amount is lower than what is needed based on two congressional commissions' estimates for the maintenance of aging bridges, highways and rail systems.
