Regulations that are unnecessary and burdensome are harmful to the economy. They increase the time and cost of doing business, and therefore increase prices and kill jobs. When it takes years for federal agencies to approve new plants and facilities, it takes years before people are working there. If infrastructure development is delayed, public service is reduced and access needed for private-sector growth is reduced.
Accelerating the development of new manufacturing plants and equipment, and infrastructure improvements are fundamental to our mission. We will be at the forefront of federal efforts to reduce regulations and shorten the timeframe for federal review of projects.
