Many agree the United States needs environmental permitting reform to support energy development, modernize dated infrastructure, and facilitate economic development. For example, Congress amended the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) as part of the Federal Responsibility Act of 2023.  The White House Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) followed shortly thereafter with its Phase II proposal for revising its NEPA regulations.  Join a panel of experts for a moderated lunch discussion on the state of permitting reform in the United States.  It will explore the current need, recent changes and proposals, and how they may impact future development and litigation.
