Environmental approvals of infrastructure projects need to move at speed of 21st century

Jan. 9, 2020, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement in support of action by the White House Council of Environmental Quality to streamline environmental approvals for infrastructure and other projects:

“The Trump administration’s proposed rule to modernize the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) regulations is timely and important.  America cannot compete in the 21st century digital age when common sense infrastructure needs are effectively derailed by a regulatory regime which often takes the better part of a decade to satisfy.  The streamlined system outlined by the proposed rule protects the environment while taking away barriers which are more about stopping needed growth than protecting the environment.”

Correction: The proposal is by the White House Council of Environmental Quality, not the Interior Department.
