But some people are fairly consistent.. according to Center for Western Priorities:
“These changes to the energy permitting process would occur via legislation separate from the Inflation Reduction Act and would not qualify for the Senate budget procedure, making it impossible to approve a simple majority. The new agreement will need 60 votes to be approved and therefore requires Democratic and Republican support in order to pass.
According to a one-page summary, the new legislation would set new two-year maximum limits for environmental reviews for major projects and would expedite the approval process for energy projects by centralizing decision-making within one agency. It would also make it more difficult to challenge energy projects under the National Environmental Policy Act and would give the Department of Energy more authority to approve electric transmission lines.
The additional legislation is likely to face opposition from environmental groups and Democrats like Representative Raúl Grijalva, the chairman of the House Committee on Natural Resources, who said he’s worried that “comprehensive permitting reform” is a euphemism for gutting foundational environmental and public health protections like the National Environmental Policy Act.
