Webster Praises Proposal to Modernize NEPA

Washington, DC – Florida Congressman Daniel Webster, R-Clermont, released the following statement on the White House Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) proposal to update National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) regulations.

“For too long, unaccountable bureaucrats have weaponized the environmental review process to push a political agenda. President Trump knows from personal experience how damaging slow, burdensome red-tape can be to much-needed infrastructure projects. A streamlined process with deadlines will improve the review of critical road, bridge and water projects and save taxpayer dollars.

“Throughout my public service, I have advocated for policies that support local projects and find solutions that protect Florida’s precious natural resources, public safety and health; while balancing the needs of our growing economy.”
