If environmental reviews and authorizations under other federal laws are not effectively coordinated, meeting the requirements outlined in Executive Order (EO) 13807 on Establishing Discipline and Accountability in the Environmental Review and Permitting Process for Infrastructure will be difficult, if not impossible.
The purpose of EO 13807 is to support the timely processing of federal environmental reviews and agency authorization decisions for proposed major infrastructure projects. In addition to outlining the goal of completing all environmental reviews in an average of two years, EO 13807 stipulates that all federal authorization decisions, including issuing permits, shall be completed within 90 days of the issuance of a ROD.
This webinar will examine how to effectively coordinate planning and permitting for three federal laws, compliance with which is commonly needed for major infrastructure projects – the Endangered Species Act, the Clean Water Act, and the National Historic Preservation Act.
The webinar is free for MNAEP members, $5 for non-members. This is an online webinar. If interested in participating, please email firstname.lastname@example.org by August 23 to register. Details concerning how to log into the webinar will be provided no more than 24 hours prior to the event.
