NCSL's P3s Partners Project: Updates
In 2008, the NCSL Foundation for State Legislatures launched a 18-month P3s Partners Project to link legislators, legislative staff, and interested private sector entities to develop nonpartisan, balanced, and useful materials to help legislator’s decision-making on Public-Private Partnerships in transportation development, both in their respective states and as they consider state-federal relationships. The project plans to offer educational sessions, to prepare a Legislative PPP toolkit, to develop greater NCSL expertise on the topic, and to inform the NCSL Transportation Committee’s deliberation of PPP in the context of state-federal relations.
I began to track the progress of the P3s project on this blog-post in this August, at that time simply because of my shared interest in PPPs, without knowing that I would get the opportunity to serve as the “technical resource” of the project later. It is indeed a privilege for me!
