Rural America Needs Permitting Reform

Reps. Dan Newhouse (R-WA) and Pete Stauber (R-MN) write in RealClearEnergy about the need for permitting reform.

The C3 Take
  • The House of Representatives recently passed H.R. 1, the Lower Energy Costs Act, which reforms and modernizes our nation’s permitting process.
  • Updating the permitting process will allow for more transmission, mining, and energy projects to be completed which will benefit every American and especially those in rural communities.
  • These projects will power necessary infrastructure like hospitals and allow farmers to use next generation practices like precision farming.
  • Passing meaningful permitting reform will benefit our environment and economy.

“As Chairman of the Congressional Western Caucus and Chairman of the Energy and Mineral Resources Subcommittee on the House Natural Resources Committee, we see the threat the Biden Administration poses to rural communities across the country, and we’re acting against it. If rural America is to continue producing the food, resources, and power our Nation depends on, the Senate needs to pass H.R. 1, and its permitting reform provisions now, before it’s too late.”
