On Aug. 16, President Biden signed the Inflation Reduction Act, an investment in climate, health care and tax initiatives. The legislation includes $350 million for the Federal Permitting Improvement Steering Council to help implement infrastructure projects.

  • The Permitting Council will use some of the money to help federal agencies with staffing and centralized tools and some of it to assist state, local and tribal governments, said Executive Director Christine Harada.
  • Harada said she plans to hire about four more people to ensure successful implementation.
