The Endangered Species Act aims to conserve plant and animal species that are endangered or threatened throughout all or a portion of their habitat. But as the list of species protected under the act grows, the range of habitats in which these species live increasingly overlaps with areas otherwise designated for development. The balancing act of species conservation and development is forming some unique partnerships in states. This eCademy session will present a brief background of endangered species management in states and highlight a recent example of partnership among federal, state and local governments and diverse stakeholder groups.

The U.S. Small Business Administration recently released the State Trade and Export Promotion—or STEP—grant solicitation for the 2015 fiscal year. The STEP program provides matching funds to states to help small businesses start or expand exports in foreign markets. The program’s overall objective is to increase the number of small businesses that export, thereby helping to increase their revenue and support good-paying jobs in their state. In this free eCademy session, SBA representatives will provide an overview of the grant application, discuss eligibility materials, and lead a question-and-answer session.

The latest extension of a 2012 federal transportation bill is set to expire May 31 and with its expiration, the Highway Trust Fund is expected to run out of money. With this looming deadline, many wonder if a long-term bill to reauthorize and fund transportation programs is in the cards, and whether Congress will have a plan to pay for it. During this FREE eCademy webcast, experts will provide an update on where things stand in Washington with just over a month to go before the deadline.  State officials will offer their perspectives on the toll the uncertainty has taken on some state transportation projects and how two states were able to approve transportation funding measures in recent years.
