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 2021.

  • 2021 Federal Priority Issues:

    2021 State Priority Issues:

    • Continuing Education & Licensing
    • Infrastructure Investment to Stimulate the Economy
    • Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion in Education, Workforce, Planning, and Development
    • Natural Hazards Impact Mitigation & Infrastructure Security
    • Professional Certification
    • Qualifications-Based Selection for Engineering Services
    • Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) Education & Support (K-12)
    • State Support for Civil Engineering (Higher Education)
    • Sustainability
    • Transportation Infrastructure Investment

    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 which is emailed to members in June each year.
