“Time is money.  Reviewing and approving infrastructure projects in the most efficient way possible is critical to our Nation’s efforts in building a 21st century infrastructure and keeping project costs from escalating.  I am pleased that the Administration is exercising the authority provided by Congress to streamline the review process for infrastructure projects.  Today’s announcement is a positive step forward in the fight against inefficient, bureaucratic permitting.”
