Title: Adding Land Revitalization as a Sector of Projects Eligible for Coverage Under Title 41 of the Fixing America's Surface Transportation Act (FAST-41) 

Title 41 of the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation Act (FAST-41), 42 U.S.C. 4370m et seq. , established the Federal Permitting Improvement Council (Permitting Council), which is comprised of an Office of the Executive Director, 13 Federal agency council members and additional Permitting Council members, the Council on Environmental Quality, and the Office of Management and Budget. The Permitting Council facilitates deliberate, coordinated, and transparent Federal environmental review and authorization for FAST-41 covered” infrastructure projects across a statutorily identified range of industry sectors, including renewable and conventional energy production, electricity transmission, surface transportation, aviation, ports and waterways, water resource projects, broadband, pipelines, manufacturing, and carbon capture. FAST-41 authorizes the Permitting Council, by majority vote of the Permitting Council members, to add classes of projects to those eligible for FAST-41 coverage. 42 U.S.C. 4370m(6)(A). Pursuant to that authority, the Permitting Council is considering whether to include land revitalization as a sector of projects eligible for coverage under FAST-41. Inclusion of land revitalization as a FAST-41 sector would not guarantee that any particular project in the sector would be covered under FAST-41 or receive the benefits of enhanced coordination under the statute. A project sponsor seeking the benefits of FAST-41 would still have to apply to participate in the FAST-41 program and comply with all applicable statutes and regulations.
