On April 10, President Trump signed two executive orders supporting the development of energy infrastructure. The orders seek to address lengthy permitting delays that can impede construction. The first order removes barriers to pipeline construction, provides incentives for private investment in energy infrastructure and updates transport regulations to allow shipment of liquified natural gas by rail. The second order provides the president with sole authority to grant permits for pipelines to cross U.S. borders with Canada and Mexico, with advice from the State Department. AGC continues to support efforts to streamline federal permitting processes.
