NLBMDA Joins Over 300 Groups Supporting Improved Environmental Review and Permitting

NLBMDA has joined more than 300 organizations in sending a letter to the leadership of the US Senate Homeland Security & Governmental Affairs Committee in support of S. 280, the Federal Permitting Improvement Act of 2015. The Committee recently approved the legislation be a 12 to 1 vote.

The legislation would improve the environmental review and permitting process by Providing for concurrent reviews by agencies and allowing state-level environmental reviews to be used where the state has done a competent job, thereby avoiding needless duplication of state work by federal reviewers.

NLMBDA will continue its efforts to support regulatory improvement measures such as S. 280.
