Interview: Ed Rendell on the nation’s infrastructure woes

This week on Need to Know, anchor Ray Suarez interviews Ed Rendell, the former Governor of Pennsylvania and co-chair of Building America’s Future, a bi-partisan organization that aims to create a new era of investment in America’s infrastructure.

Suarez asks Rendell about Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s controversial plan to fix Chicago’s infrastructure through a public-private partnership, including whether or not the Chicago model could work in other cities and why the traditional way of financing infrastructure projects may not be possible in the current economic climate.
