“Suddenly, it seems like everyone in Washington is talking about permitting reform. In the House, Republicans are pushing to include sweeping proposals that would make it easier to develop fossil fuel projects in a debt ceiling deal. In the Senate, both Democratic and Republican lawmakers are rolling dueling bills to speed up energy development while also meeting to discuss a potential bipartisan compromise. And on Wednesday, the White House unveiled its own long list of permitting reform priorities, mostly focused on laying the groundwork for the speedy deployment of renewable energy.” (05/11/23)
