About

Keeping track of the latest developments in infrastructure legislation and its effects on the environmental planning profession can easily become an all-consuming effort. NAEP has pulled together a group of industry experts to walk junior to senior-level environmental planners through the latest developments resulting from the recently signed Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act and the Build Back Better bill. Topics will include tracking where money will be allocated, an explanation of the environmental considerations, and the effect on agency policies.

There will be a Question and Answer period so please bring your questions!
