H.R. 7 Speeds Up Bureaucratic Approvals for Infrastructure Projects, Cuts Permitting Time in Half
Congressman John Boehner

SPEEDS UP BUREAUCRATIC APPROVALS FOR INFRASTRUCTURE PROJECTS & CUTS PERMITTING TIME IN HALF BY:
We know infrastructure projects can be completed quickly and safely. For example, when a design flaw caused the I-35 bridge in Minnesota to collapse in 2007, the replacement was contracted to be completed within 437 days. It was actually finished well ahead of schedule in 14 months thanks to the kind of streamlined review and permit process created by the American Energy & Infrastructure Jobs Act.
H.R. 7 also eliminates or consolidates nearly 70 federal transportation programs, and is earmark-free. As Congressman Boehner wrote in Human Events today, gone are the days when powerful chairmen and the most senior members of Congress steer your money to their most-favored pet projects.
Stay tuned to the Congressmans blog for part five in our series on pro-growth reforms in H.R. 7, a bill that removes barriers to energy production to create more than a million new jobs and address rising gas prices, and focuses taxpayer resources on high-priority infrastructure projects without earmarks, without adding to our national debt, and without raising taxes on families and small businesses.
