Aug 17, 2017
Press Release

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Kevin Cramer issued the following statement after President Donald Trump signed an executive order on Tuesday establishing discipline and accountability in the environmental review and permitting process for infrastructure projects: 

“Our state has seen the consequences of a flawed permitting and environmental review process for infrastructure projects. When dozens of agencies require approval before large projects can go forward, nothing ever gets built. President Trump, through his actions this week to help renew our crumbling infrastructure, shows he gets it when it comes to fixing the government red-tape surrounding these projects. I applaud the President for his actions and stand ready to get to work in Congress on passing an infrastructure bill.”
