Investors in BIP include a diverse mix of public and private pension plans, sovereign wealth funds, insurance companies, foundations and family offices.

These investments will allow us to deliver much-needed improvements to our nation’s infrastructure, create jobs and enhance America’s economic growth, productivity, and global competitiveness.”

I have been involved with publishing and marketing for the past 37 years. My passion is helping people share their voice. I am able to do this through two important venues: One, with Area-Info.net where people can share everything from opinions to events to news. It is your choice! What do you want to share? Two, through a new program called America's Real Deal I am involved with to help business owners get their voice heard. For people who love to save money and earn while saving, there is a new program called the r network. You are provided with a card that entitles the user to automatic savings on more than 300,000 products. Learn more about the revv card today. This is by invitation only to be some of the first people to get this card. I schedule speaking engagements with community groups and business groups to share my passion about the importance of "sharing your voice". Contact me directly at [email protected] for scheduling information.
