Jon M. Laria, moderator
Edward G. Rendell


Public-private partnerships are no longer just an intriguing option for priority public projects. They are increasingly essential as governments at all levels wrestle with budget constraints that affect their ability to make capital investments with public dollars. P3 programs across the country help inject private capital into traditionally public projects, while public commitments to these projects in the form of leases and economic assistance help private developers obtain financing and get their projects moving. 

Mr. Laria will moderate this panel of experienced players from both sides of the equation, including former Pennsylvania Governor Edward G. Rendell, whose administration energized the state's economy through strategic investments and innovative public-private partnerships. Other panelists include key public-sector leaders from Maryland, where Governor Martin O'Malley's administration is implementing P3 projects across the state and across industry sectors. Private developers from each state will also participate on the panel, describing the special challenges the private sector faces in the world of P3s.
