WASHINGTON – American Exploration and Production Council CEO Anne Bradbury released the following statement on the Fiscal Responsibility Act, which includes provisions in Title III—Permitting Reform:
“The Fiscal Responsibility Act includes meaningful reforms to the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and approves the Mountain Valley Pipeline, which can provide low-cost, clean natural gas to American families and business. This bill sets the stage for more comprehensive permitting reform and is a positive step toward modernizing our permitting system and streamlining the bureaucratic process, which has been holding back America’s ability to build energy infrastructure for decades. The permitting provisions are critical to cutting energy costs for Americans, while also maintaining environmental protections. We encourage Members of Congress to pass this agreement.”
