Biden rollback of permitting reform is making his own energy goals impossible

Senator Shelley Moore Capito writes in The Washington Examiner on President Biden’s rollback of permitting reform.

The C3 Take
  • President Biden’s recent rollbacks of Trump-era environmental reforms will hamstring American clean energy development.
  • Trump’s reforms streamlined the permitting  and review process of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), allowing America to build cleaner and faster.
  • Rather than increasing regulatory hurdles, the Biden administration should reduce restrictions to allow the private sector to thrive.

“Now it is time to come together and reform the environmental review and permitting process to support an all-of-the-above approach to American energy — including oil, gas, coal, nuclear, renewables, and critical minerals. Through bipartisan reforms, we can secure our domestic production and export American-produced energy across the globe. I’ll be waiting for the administration to join me.”
