Adam Schildge: A faster bounce-back for America’s infrastructure

The nation's public transportation systems will be stronger when the next major storm hits. Adam Schildge is a senior program analyst at the Federal Transit Administration. He's in charge of a $3.6 billion competitive grant program. He developed a new methodology to help decide which public transportation projects might get hit in another storm in the future and which ones should get a resilience grant. He's a finalist for a Service to America medal in the Call to Service category. He tells In Depth with Francis Rose how he started his federal career.
