This chapter explains the absence of national land-use planning and regulation in the United States, and examines the limited role of the national government in the development of private and public land. The national role takes its shape from a patchwork of substantive laws, institutions and actions, and is composed five principal patches: (1) environmental regulation; (2) management of nationally owned land; (3) transportation policy and finance; (4) housing and economic development subsidies; and (5) anti-land-use planning and regulation.

Keywords:   land-use planning, environmental regulation, transportation, housing
