The White House released last week a federal plan for expediting permitting and review processes for infrastructure projects. Part of the effort to implement a March 22 executive order (No. 13,604) to improve regulatory approvals of projects for communications, electric power transmission, oil and gas pipelines, renewable energy generation, transportation, and water resources, adds more details on agency obligations. The plan, Implementing Executive Order No. 13,604 on Improving Performance of Federal Permitting and Review of Infrastructure Projects: A Federal Plan for Modernizing the Federal Permitting and Preview Process for Better Projects, Improved Environmental and Community Outcomes, and Quicker Decisions, indicates that each agency must identify and publish online its significant permit decision making and review responsibilities as well as estimated timelines.
