Biden-⁠Harris Administration Proposes Reforms to Modernize Environmental Reviews, Accelerate America’s Clean Energy Future, and Strengthen Public Input

Bipartisan Permitting Reform Implementation Rule to provide for an effective environmental review process that promotes better decision making; ensure full and fair public involvement; provide for an efficient process and regulatory certainty; and provide for sound decision making grounded in science, including consideration of relevant environmental, climate change, and environmental justice effects.

To meet President Biden’s historic clean energy and infrastructure goals, a core component of Bidenomics, the Biden-Harris Administration is undertaking an all-of-government effort to accelerate federal permitting while ensuring strong environmental protections and robust community engagement.

“We need to accelerate and improve the permitting process in order to meet our ambitious climate and clean energy goals. That’s why President Biden has made permitting a top priority of senior Administration officials for the first time in history,” said John Podesta, Senior Advisor to the President for Clean Energy Innovation and Implementation. “Today’s proposed regulations represent our Administration’s next step on permitting to help accelerate infrastructure and clean energy deployment while promoting meaningful public input and advancing environmental justice.”
