FAST-41: Your Tailored Roadmap for Infrastructure Project Permitting/The Federal Permitting Improvement Steering Council

This WestFAST-hosted webinar provided an overview of the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation (FAST) Act, which was signed into law on December 4, 2015.  Title 41 of the FAST Act (FAST-41) (42 U.S.C. § 4370m) was designed to improve the timeliness, predictability, and transparency of the Federal environmental review and authorization process for covered infrastructure projects.  FAST-41 created a new entity – the Federal Permitting Improvement Steering Council (FPISC), composed of agency Deputy Secretary-level members and chaired by an Executive Director appointed by the President.  FAST-41 establishes new procedures that standardize inter-agency consultation and coordination practices.  FAST-41 codifies into law the use of the Permitting Dashboard to track project timelines, including actions that must be taken by federal agencies. Project sponsor participation in FAST-41 is voluntarily.
