Chair’s Column

By Catherine P. McCarthy

As the incoming Chair of the ABA’s Infrastructure and Regulated Industries Section, I am grateful for the opportunity, and I look forward to working with Section members. Regulated industries owning infrastructure and providing service to the public are a national priority now more than ever. For example, the COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated changes in the way we rely on the communications industry, underscoring the importance of communications infrastructure, services, and providers. This year’s presidential election will also highlight the importance of infrastructure. Issues central to the election include how our infrastructure will be developed, maintained, and financed, and also, how environmental considerations related to infrastructure should be weighed prospectively by government regulators, regulated service providers, and the public.
