Priority Issues

  • In an effort to narrow the focus and to better deploy our government relations resources, the Public Policy Committee and the ASCE Board of Direction have identified the following federal and state priorities for 2016.

  • 2016 Federal Priority Issues:

    • Clean water, drinking water and wastewater issues
    • Natural hazards mitigation & infrastructure security
    • Qualifications based selection for engineering services
    • Science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education
    • Sustainable development & sustainable energy use
    • Transportation infrastructure
    • Water resources infrastructure

    2016 State Priority Issues:

    • Continuing Education
    • Licensing
    • Qualifications Based Selection for Engineering Services
    • Science, Technology, Engineering & Math (STEM) Education
    • Sustainability
    • Transportation Infrastructure Financing

    Priority issues are listed in alphabetical order. The fact that an issue is not included does not constrain ASCE action. Attention to state issues would benefit ASCE presence in most states; however priorities in individual states or regions may differ.

    The annual priority issues list is developed with member input through the annual Issues Survey.
