Letter to Senators Manchin and Sullivan and Rep. Graves on their CRA to Overturn the NEPA Phase II Final Rule

I am writing to express our steadfast support for your initiative to introduce a bipartisan, bicameral Congressional Review Act (CRA) resolution to overturn the NEPA Phase II Final Rule. Your leadership in seeking to correct this regulatory misstep is crucial for ensuring that infrastructure development can proceed efficiently and equitably. The NEPA Phase II rule, as currently formulated, appears to contradict the original bipartisan agreement intended to streamline the permitting process, which is essential for the timely execution of infrastructure projects vital for national security and economic growth. The added bureaucratic layers and potential for increased litigation threaten to stall these critical projects, impacting job creation and our overall economic vitality
