Wednesday, July 19, 1:30PM (ET) - The Fiscal Responsibility Act of 2023 (FRA) enacted the first legislative amendments directly to the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) statute in approximately 50 years.

In this session we will distill what has changed under NEPA and identify opportunities and challenges that engineering and legal practitioners can realistically expect in implementing NEPA’s new provisions going forward.
