Key Vote YES on S.J. Res. 55

The American Energy Alliance urges all Senators to support S.J. Res. 55, the Congressional Review Act resolution of disapproval for the Council on Environmental Quality revisions to implementation rules for the National Environmental Policy Act.

Construction of infrastructure of all types takes far too long, and costs far too much, in the United States. One of the primary reasons for this excessive time and expense is the tangled mess of the NEPA review process. This costly and lengthy process, large parts of which are unnecessary for environmental protection, is in desperate need of reform. The reforms undertaken under the Trump administration were small and incremental changes. An improvement, but hardly a true fix.

Unfortunately, the Biden administration has chosen to reverse even these minor changes to the NEPA process. This reversal mean that even more of the money authorized by last year’s bipartisan infrastructure legislation will end up wasted on NEPA bureaucracy. The Biden administration’s action to increase the costs and slow infrastructure development will add to already high inflationary pressure and weigh on an economy entering recession. It is harmful policy and should be opposed.

The AEA urges all members to support free markets and affordable energy by voting YES on S.J. Res. 55.  AEA will include this vote in its American Energy Scorecard.
