It’s not just energy — our slow permitting process is also harming conservation

Zach Hartman and Chris Barnard write in The Hill about the impacts of slow permitting on conservation.

The C3 Take
  • America’s outdated permitting process is not only hamstringing our ability to generate clean and affordabale energy, but our ability to conserve precious wildlife as well.
  • Forest management projects can be delayed by as long as 4.5 years which makes wildfires worse and puts more communities in harm’s way.
  • Policymakers must meaningfully modernize our permitting process to protect our ecosystems and environment.

“Put simply, permitting issues are holding North American conservation back, but Congress can fix it. This is a responsible and bipartisan way to ensure that American sportsmen and women can pass on their passions and appreciation of our natural resources, not just to their children and grandchildren, but also to keep these cherished outdoor traditions alive for generations long after. And our environment will be more resilient as a result.”
