A boom in bureaucracy won’t build America back any better

Heather Reams of the Citizens for Responsible Energy Solutions (CRES) writes in The Hill that more bureaucracy won’t build America back any better.

The C3 Take
  • Current government regulations slow down clean energy and infrastructure projects, driving up costs and delaying progress.
  • Even if President Biden’s Build Back Better plan was a good idea, many of the projects would be significantly delayed due to the permitting and review process under policies like the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA).
  • Infrastructure and clean energy are issues that receive bipartisan support. In order to complete these important projects, the government must first streamline permitting in a more efficient and environmentally friendly way.

“Massive expansion of federal bureaucracy and government control won’t make America’s roads and bridges better; and it won’t make our power grids more reliable or less polluting. For far too long, Washington-generated red tape and duplicative oversight have hamstrung our nation’s ability to repair crumbling infrastructure without massive cost overruns and unnecessary delays.”
