Streamlining the Federal Permitting Process Will Unlock Investment & Spur Economic Growth

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
