Permitting Reform Key to Building Infrastructure, Improving Efficiency

Washington, DC (April 10, 2018) – LIUNA General President Terry O’Sullivan made the following statement on the Administration’s permitting review reform:

LIUNA commends the Administration’s newly announced “One Federal Decision” Memorandum of Understanding, which will help streamline federal review and permitting processes for major infrastructure projects. The Administration’s effort to improve efficiency and encourage federal agencies to coordinate will spur investment and speed building of our nation’s roads, bridges, water systems, and transit.

LIUNA members are America’s builders but costly and time-consuming review processes are holding us back from rebuilding our nation’s great roadways and bridges, unlocking our domestic energy reserves, and making crucial repairs to our aging drinking water systems.

LIUNA looks forward to continuing to work with the Administration to address our nation’s infrastructure needs.
