NCSL Spring Forum Pre-Conference Meeting on PPPs

Washington, DC
April 22-25, 2009

The NCSL Foundation Partners Project on Public-Private Partnerships (P3s/PPPs) exists to link legislators, legislative staff and interested private sector entities to analyze legislators’ needs and to develop nonpartisan, balanced, useful materials to aid legislators’ decision-making regarding PPPs in transportation, both in their respective states and as they consider state-federal relationships. 

One purpose of this 18-month Project is to develop and offer educational sessions. This pre-conference meeting on public-private partnerships at NCSL's 2009 Spring Forum in Washington, D.C., examined the place of PPPs in a state legislature's toolbox of transportation funding options. This meeting will inform the Partners Project Steering Committee as it embarks on a year-long analysis of PPPs with the goal of developing a toolkit for state legislatures to use as they assess the appropriateness of PPPs for addressing transportation infrastructure needs.
