Citizens for Responsible Energy Solutions (CRES) President Heather Reams issued the following statement on S.J. Res. 55, a joint resolution of disapproval under the Congressional Review Act (CRA) to nullify the Biden Administration’s revisions to the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA).
“For years CRES has called upon lawmakers to inject some common sense into the National Environmental Policy Act and streamline federal environmental review processes. However, the Biden White House has taken us in the wrong direction. CRES applauds Senator Dan Sullivan (R-AK) and his 49 Senate Republican colleagues for introducing a resolution to nullify President Biden’s flawed policies on permitting and construction.
“America cannot reduce emissions quickly if we are stymied by old and crumbling infrastructure. To build a clean energy future in America, and to protect our vulnerable communities from a changing climate, we need a permitting process that evaluates projects on the merits while discouraging anti-development groups from using environmental review simply to delay or block critical infrastructure construction.”
Citizens for Responsible Energy Solutions (CRES) engages Republican policymakers and the public about responsible, conservative solutions to address our nation’s energy, economic, and environmental security while increasing America’s competitive edge. For more information, visit www.CRESenergy.com.
