NEPA Revisions Would Undercut Infrastructure Projects

Krisztina Pusok writes in RealClearEnergy on delays from environmental regulations.

The C3 Take
  • President Biden’s rollback of permitting reform for the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) will slow down the roll out of clean energy and infrastructure.
  • Infrastructure projects are held up for years under NEPA review, increasing costs and delaying completion times.
  • President Biden can accelerate infrastructure completion times and stretch taxpayer dollars further by implementing an efficient NEPA review process.

“Other infrastructure projects not directly related to energy including roads, bridges, mass transit, and broadband infrastructure arealso impacted. This is unfortunate since America already faces a range of other challenges including record inflation, supply chain issues, and worker shortages. The last thing it needs is costly construction delays for critical infrastructure.”
