Lane draws on over 15 years of Washington experience in water, power, mining, and municipal tax and finance issues to help clients develop policy solutions and execute legislative and advocacy strategies with Congress and federal agencies. During his work on Capitol Hill and in the executive branch and private sector, he has been directly involved with drafting and passage significant water, public lands and energy legislation including the John D. Dingell, Jr. Conservation, Management, and Recreation Act, the Colorado River Drought Contingency Plan Authorization Act, Water Supply Infrastructure Rehabilitation and Utilization Act, and the Energy Act of 2020.
