The United States will not be able to compete and prosper in the 21st century if we continue to allow a broken and outdated bureaucratic system hold us back from building what we need: the roads, the airports, the schools, everything.
Right now, it takes over seven years, and oftentimes much longer – and seven years is like record time – to complete approvals for a simple highway – the simplest of them.
With today’s proposed reforms, we will reduce that number by more than 70 percent.
We’ll cut the federal permitting timeline for major projects down to two years.
And ideally, we’re going to try and get even less than that.
So you’ll be – instead of 21, 22, 25, 8, 9, 12, 15 – we’re going to get it down to 2 years and maybe less, with strong regulation, especially environmental and safety regulation.
But we’ll get it down to a very low number.
And we’re going to do it fast.
We’re doing it with a rule change that just is being signed.
In the past, those seeking infrastructure permits have had to go to numerous federal departments all over – numerous.
And numerous means many, many.
Sometimes you get the same exact change, but you had to get them from different departments.
So you would go to these federal departments and agencies requesting approval from countless governmental bureaucrats, each of whom was empowered to hold up the process and leave urgently needed projects in limbo, and for the most part they wouldn’t get built.
If they did get built, it would take so many years and cost many times more.
But our new One Federal Decision policy – it’s called “One Federal Decision” – requires agencies to work closely together to promptly deliver one decision. Yes.
The entire process will be completed; the entire federal government approval process will be done.
We’re also cutting red tape by allowing federal departments to increase the use of documentation prepared by state, tribal, and local governments.
This is just common sense and there’s no need to do all of the duplicate work.
There’s so much duplication.
You’d go for a permit.
You’d have to go for another permit.
They were all – they would turn out to be all the same permits; you’re just going to different agencies to get the same approval.
