A letter was sent to Congressional leaders calling Congress to “Permit America to Build” by means of passing meaningful, durable permitting reform before the end of summer.
According to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, “our permitting system is fundamentally broken, and it is delaying the investments that we desperately need in energy, transportation, broadband, technology and countless other sectors,” said Neil Bradley, Chief Policy Officer at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. “It should never take longer to get a permit than it does to build a project, and it is long past time for Congress to act. Over the last several years, both parties have put forward constructive proposals. Our ‘Permit America to Build’ campaign is focused on ensuring that we turn those proposals into enacted, meaningful reform.”
