Authors: E. Stratton Horres Jr., Karen L. Bashor, Taylor A. Buono

Stratton Horres (Partner-Dallas, TX), Karen L. Bashor (Partner-Las Vegas, NV) and Taylor A. Buono (Associate-Las Vegas, NV) authored “Focus on Infrastructure” for the November 5, 2021, edition of Westlaw Today. According to the 2021 American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), the report card on America's infrastructure earns a grade of a “C-” as the nation’s aging systems are in a crisis that will jeopardize its high standard of living and overall safety. Stratton, Karen and Taylor examine the legal issues and address the safety concerns posed by a poorly maintained infrastructure sorely in need of updating, and the consequences of failing to do so. The article highlights how climate exasperates levels of decay, the challenges presented by changing building codes and the proactive strategies needed to preserve the nation’s hard infrastructure.
