    Mr. Healy has acted as lead outside counsel on National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), Massachusetts Environmental Policy Act (MEPA), federal Clean Air Act (CAA), State Implementation Plan (SIP), federal Clean Water Act (CWA) and permitting compliance for a billion dollar international airport capital plan. Components of the plan included a new international terminal, new domestic terminals, new cargo buildings, new parking garages, roadway and utility improvements, power plant modifications, a new fuel distribution system, a new fuel storage facility and a new hotel as well as other capital improvements.
