The cost of construction is bound to be much cheaper now, instead of when the economy is in full steam.
That stands to reason, yet I am told construction and materials costs are high.

Perhaps someone in the field could address this.

They aren't high, but they have already bottomed out and are starting to go back up! There have actually been a few news articles about it lately too.

This is a sign that the demand for materials is going back up (which is actually good, because of why).

Environmental impact studies are a bear these days. Good luck getting anything done with the increase in regulations.

increased regulation? They have been around for awhile.

They aren't a problem so long as you plan ahead and have a legislature that doesn't actively try to block things. We have plenty of places to spend the money that have already have impact studies, however the point is the funds are uncommitted. If the lawmakers commit them then the ball can get rolling in which way it needs to. The funds aren't just sitting around because of impact studies...
