Governor has asked us to think out of the Box, and to be collaborative. I think others that can contribute and have expertise in the design of the type of fund that Alden outlined should be included in those discussions. I would hope that LBA would be receptive to other , entrepreneurial as well as academic experts to help create solutions.

We should think about adding bonus language for building affordable housing in opportunity zones, perhaps with early payout to the contractors - to protect the construction industry while taking care of the most needy in terms of housing.
