It would repair and improve the state's neglected infrastructure “backbone” like roads, electrical grids, schools, bridges, housing, and hospitals. The FIRST fund allows the state treasurer to allocate up to 5% of the state’s portfolio to invest in, create, and maintain sustainable infrastructure and real estate assets.
