Business Roundtable CEOs support passage of the bipartisan Federal Permitting Improvement Act of 2015, S. 280 – introduced today by Senators Portman and McCaskill – a bill that would address the current complex federal permitting process.
If enacted, the bill would:
- Implement a number of major reforms necessary to streamline the permitting process
- Require deadlines and schedules for processing permit applications while designating a lead agency for each project
- Codify and expand the Administration’s efforts to make the permitting process more transparent by creating an Internet-based infrastructure project-tracking dashboard
