AXPC CEO Statement on Senate Passage of the Fiscal Responsibility Act

WASHINGTON – American Exploration and Production Council CEO Anne Bradbury released the following statement on US Senate passage of the Fiscal Responsibility Act, which includes permitting reform provisions and approval of the Mountain Valley Pipeline:

The Fiscal Responsibility Act is the first down in the permitting reform game and we sincerely appreciate the members of Congress who championed American energy over the goal line.

Once signed by President Biden, these permitting reforms will provide much-needed streamlining to the NEPA process, and the Mountain Valley Pipeline will provide low-cost, clean natural gas to American families and businesses. But, It should not take an act of Congress to approve a pipeline in America.   We encourage Congress to continue to work toward modernizing our permitting system and addressing more of the underlying issues that have been hurting America’s ability to build.

We encourage President Biden to quickly sign this bill into law.
