Editor’s Column

Vol. 52 No. 2


This issue of Infrastructure is almost entirely the editorial work of my colleague, Chuck Patrizia, of Paul Hastings, LLP, in Washington, D.C. At my request, Chuck took over responsibility for this winter issue when I became temporarily disabled as a result of complications from surgery. I knew that I could turn to Chuck in these circumstances because he has always been very helpful and extremely reliable when I needed assistance.

Some time ago I received an offer from Jehmal Hudson, who is the congressional and intergovernmental affairs liaison for FERC, to write a piece discussing significant congressional developments affecting FERC with emphasis on the Keystone XL Pipeline, which, of course, has been a highly visible subject of controversy in recent years. I was excited by the prospect of such an article and am exceedingly well satisfied with Mr. Hudson’s efforts, which explore this important subject in detail. As a further step, Chuck Patrizia and editorial board member David Hardy hit upon a companion piece discussing the American Taxpayer Relief Act, which David coauthored with Section member Martha Pugh. Chuck then put the whole thing together in a highly professional way, which resulted in this outstanding issue.

My profound thanks to Chuck (and other members of our Editorial Committee)!
