ISTEA AND THE CLEAN AIR ACT AMENDMENTS: IMPLICATIONS FOR STATE AND LOCAL PLANNING. IN: MODERNIZING STATE PLANNING STATUTES: THE GROWING SMART WORKING PAPERS, VOLUME ONE

This working paper discusses the implications of the Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990 (CAAA) and the Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act of 1991 (ISTEA) for state and local planning. Both of these laws move America from a process marked by regulations requiring citizens to take actions to which they were generally predisposed to a strengthened process that requires citizens to take actions that they are reluctant to perform. Americans may endorse the primary goal of CAAA and ISTEA--to clean up the environment--but are certain to be reluctant to make the changes the acts require. And CAAA and ISTEA have posed an additional challenge to planners--how to develop and use the tools and skills needed to conduct the planning and implementation elements of ISTEA and CAAA.
