ASLA Applauds Congress on New Climate Legislation

New Legislation Makes $369 Billion Investment in Landscape Architecture Approaches to Climate issues
by Staff

The ASLA specifically promoted the fact that Congress recognized approaches to these problems that were brought up by the ASLA.

Back in August, President Biden signed into law the Inflation Reduction Act that provided $369 billion towards energy security, climate protection, and more. The American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA) applauded the legislation on its approach to handling this new funding specifically in the way it goes about addressing climate issues.


The ASLA stated that the most important part of the legislation for landscape architects is that it recognizes and funds approaches to climate solutions while making use of landscape architecture. Things like the Complete Streets theory of active transportation as well as more landscape architecture strategies regarding trails, parks, and other infrastructure are all being promoted by the legislation.

The ASLA is grateful for the bill being ratified and said that they would continue to support funding and opportunities for landscape architects through the Inflation Reduction Act.
