New Bill Would Help Prevent States from Delaying Projects Based on Water Quality Certification

AGC and other industry allies recently urged the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee to advance a new bill that would help prevent states from improperly delaying infrastructure projects based on water quality certifications. Among other reforms, the legislation—the Water Quality Certification Improvement Act of 2018 (S. 3303)—would require states to grant or deny requests by developers of federally-permitted projects for state water quality certifications in a timely fashion. In addition, states would be required to inform applicants within 90 days as to whether any additional information is needed to complete the review.
