The first panel will provide students, professors, alumni, and practitioners with information and clarity regarding Executive Order 13807, entitled “Establishing Discipline and Accountability in the Environmental Review and Permitting Process for Infrastructure Projects,” issued on August 15, 2017 by President Donald J. Trump. It will also give an overview of the Federal permitting process and the implementation of infrastructure projects.
The second panel will focus on the environmental impacts that infrastructure projects have on water, wildlife, communities, and public lands.
