President Trump Takes Steps to Reform Project Permitting Process

 

AGC of America brought Infrastructure Week to a close last Friday with President Donald Trump at the Transportation Department.  In his speech, President Trump criticized the red-tape associated with obtaining project permits and approvals, which can delay projects by a decade or more.  He signaled a new urgency to reform the permitting for infrastructure and announced a new office – housed within the Council for Environmental Quality – charged with modernizing and streamlining the process. The president also called for agencies to be held accountable for missing permitting deadlines. AGC has been leading the charge on permitting reform. Both Congress and the White House have turned to AGC for common-sense recommendations. AGC has delivered solutions to the White House, to the regulatory agencies, and in testimony and letters to Congress.
