Complimentary Webinar on Public-Private Partnerships | December 16, 2014

The Southern Legislative Conference will host a complimentary webinar addressing recent developments in public-private partnerships (P3s) across SLC member states at 2:00 - 3:00 p.m. EST, Tuesday, December 16, 2014. In an effort to develop alternate funding sources to implement critical transportation and infrastructure projects, states across the country increasingly are looking to P3s as an important strategy.  P3s are contractual agreements between a public agency and a private entity facilitating a more robust private sector role, including in the design, construction, finance, long-term operation and traffic revenue of these transportation and infrastructure projects.  With encouragement from the federal government, three dozen states have enacted authorization frameworks for P3s. SLC states have been particularly active in pursuing the P3 format for a number of years. This webinar will provide the latest perspectives and approaches from three SLC states—Florida, Texas and Virginia.
