New Permitting Action Plan Released

Today, the White House released a new Permitting Action Plan. The Action Plan outlines the Administration’s strategy for accelerating federal permitting and environmental reviews of infrastructure projects.

The five key elements of the plan are:

  • Accelerating smart permitting through early cross-agency coordination
  • Establishing clear timeline goals and tracking key project information
  • Engaging in early and meaningful outreach with states, tribal nations, territories, and local communities
  • Improving agency responsiveness, technical assistance, and support
  • Using agency resources and environmental reviews to improve impact
