Briefly describe how the state scores in relation to the rest of the United States. Analyze whether the profile of the state may explain the infrastructure scores of that given state.
Economic Impact (5 points) Discuss the impacts of the failure to act for at least two infrastructure systems. Use the infrastructure facts of the state to discuss the overall economic impacts. Conclusion (3 points) Summarize the key findings and indicate the infrastructure systems that need immediate attention for the given state.
