“It is vital to all Americans that U.S. infrastructure have the capacity to meet the demands of our modern economy. When inefficient rules and red tape get in the way of building modern infrastructure in a timely and affordable way, it is in the national interest to address refinements that align with current needs. That effort has been successfully accomplished by the Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) in modernizing NEPA provisions, where proposed rules have struck a balance between protecting the environment and reintroducing the importance of ensuring reviews are executed in a cost-effective and timely manner. Reducing NEPA delays, red tape, and costs will allow the public and our economy to more quickly reap the benefits of modern infrastructure, which will save time and money for individuals and small businesses alike, and improve environmental conditions through less congestion, faster routes and the projects that promote energy efficiency and alternatives.”
