Navigating Environmental Compliance for Public-Private Partnerships
On April 21, 2021, Andrée Blais and David Miller participated as panelists for "Navigating Environmental Compliance for Public-Private Partnerships," a webinar hosted by the Transportation Research Board (TRB) Standing Committee on Environmental Issues in Transportation Law. Andrée, David and other industry experts discussed how to effectively integrate private sector involvement in the environmental process, focusing on the following topics:
- The National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) process for P3 projects;
- The extent of permissible project developer involvement in the early project development process and how this affects NEPA and other environmental compliance issues; and
- How private developers and federal agencies can remain unbiased throughout an environmental evaluation.
