CRES Statement on the BUILDER Act

Statement from Citizens for Responsible Energy Solutions on the introduction of the Building U.S. Infrastructure through Limited Delays & Efficient Reviews (BUILDER) Act in the House of Representatives to amend the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA):

“CRES is proud to support Representatives Garret Graves in introducing much-needed legislation to reform the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). For far too long, red tape has hamstrung our nation’s ability to rebuild crumbling infrastructure, prevented communities from taking advantage of technological revolutions, and delayed our transition to a more robust and sustainable energy future. Rep. Graves’ BUILDER Act will codify into legislation common sense reforms that the Trump Administration recently introduced to modernize NEPA, ensuring that clean energy infrastructure projects won’t be delayed into obscurity by bureaucratic roadblocks. CRES commends Rep. Graves for championing the BUILDER Act and thanks Leaders Kevin McCarthy, Whip Steve Scalise, Conference Chair Liz Cheney and the bill’s other 15 cosponsors for their support. CRES will remain a stalwart proponent of NEPA reforms.”

-Heather Reams, Executive Director
