Bill Would Streamline Natural Gas Pipeline Approval Process

U.S. Sens. Jim Inhofe (R-OK) and Angus King (I-ME) announced the introduction of the bipartisan Coordinating Interagency Review of Natural Gas Infrastructure Act of 2017. This legislation seeks to streamline the permitting process for interstate projects at the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC).

“For too long, the natural gas pipeline permitting process has been crippled with inefficiencies that unnecessarily delay critical projects for interstate commerce,” said Inhofe. “By streamlining the permitting process, we can get pipelines from planning to serving the public faster and more efficiently. This bill brings all federal, state and local regulatory agencies to the table early on to coordinate participation—resulting in a more collaborative and timely review process.”
