About the Webinar:
The United States’ aging infrastructure and how to improve it have been topics of import for many years. Recent federal legislation promoting funding for over a trillion dollars of infrastructure improvements in the immediate future could be a game-changer. It is vital for attorneys and businesses in the construction, design, and supply-chain industries to understand how this legislation will likely affect them and how they can be involved and comply. Our panel will address these issues and more.
