AGC ACTION ALERT: OPPOSE THE PRO ACT

ENVIRONMENT

Answer

President Trump strongly opposes the Green New Deal. His administration will implement and defend environmental review and permit streamlining rules, including:

  • The new Navigable Waters Protection Rule, which determines and clarifies which waters are fall under federal jurisdiction and require extensive federal permits before work can begin.
  • Updates to streamline the National Environmental Policy Act – a review process for federal actions that often takes several years to complete causing delay for infrastructure projects.
  • Updates to clarify often-litigated elements of the Endangered Species Act: definitions, critical habitat, protections for threatened species, and the consultation process.
