In this week’s episode of Podcast from Washington, Government Affairs team members Ian Goldstein and Eli Briggs discuss the passage of the Preventing Online Sales of E-Cigarettes to Children Act, which would require adults to sign for vaping products delivered by mail. The legislation also implements new safeguards, such as age verification requirements that would prevent the online sale of electronic cigarettes to minors. They also discuss the Senate movement of FY2020 appropriations, before the current continuing resolution expires November 21.
Later in the program, Ian Goldstein sits down with Matthew Clarke, Director of Creative Placemaking for the Trust for Public Land to discuss how Matthew became involved in urban creative placemaking. They discuss his influences as an architect and urban space creator, as well as Clarke’s latest book The Field Guide for Creative Placemaking in the Parks, a how-to resource for community development.
