Campaign for a National Infrastructure Bank
Democratic National Convention
Webinar | YouTube
8.17.2020 | 1:00pm

What Is the National Infrastructure Bank?

The proposal for a $4 Trillion National Infrastructure Bank is embodied in H.R. 6422, introduced into the U.S. House of Representatives by Rep. Danny Davis (D-IL). The bank is modeled on similar such institutions the USA has had, under Presidents Washington, JQ Adams, Lincoln and Franklin Roosevelt. The webinar features state and local elected officials, as well as union leaders and economic and infrastructure experts. The legislation, if implemented, would create 25 million new union-wage jobs in the USA. The NIB Coalition believes it is crucial to the ability to economically recover from the devastating impact of the COVID pandemic, and will enable the USA to reverse decades of decay in the nation's bridges, roads, dams, canals, water systems and power grid. It will also provide funding for a nationwide network of high speed railroads and rural broadband. The bank is configured to be budget neutral, requiring no new taxes and creating no new federal debt.

3.11.19 - DNC Chairman Tom Perez announced Mikwaukee as the host city for the 2020 Democratic National Convention. See articles below for more information.


Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez will be choosing among Houston, Miami and Milwaukee as the host city for the 2020 Democratic National Convention. The convention is scheduled for July 13-16, 2020. For the past several weeks, Democrats have quietly suggested Milwaukee is the leading contender. In December, the DNC committee paid last visits to each city before a decision will be made which is expected by the end of February 2019.

Site selection

Bids on the site for the convention were solicited in late 2017 and made public in the spring of 2018. Las Vegas, Nevada later withdrew and decided to focus on the 2020 Republican National Convention, for which their bid was subsequently defeated by Charlotte, North Carolina.

On June 20, 2018, the Democratic National Committee announced four finalists for the convention site.

  • American Airlines Arena, Miami, Florida (with some MIA 2020 - Logomeetings at the Miami Beach Convention Center, Miami Beach, Florida)

With the exception of Milwaukee, each of the finalist cities have hosted a past Democratic convention. Denver hosted in both 1908 and 2008. Houston hosted in 1928. Miami hosted in 1972. In addition, both Houston and Miami have also previously hosted Republican National Conventions, with Houston hosting it once in 1992 and Miami having hosted both the 1968 and 1972.
