Mullin Introduces Bill to Protect President Trump’s NEPA Reform

Today, Congressman Markwayne Mullin (OK-02) introduced a bill to codify President Trump’s National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) reform from July 2020. The “Stop NEPA Expansion Act” comes in response to the Biden Administration’s decision to roll back the Trump Administration’s successful modernization of these outdated laws and streamlined permitting process for producers. 

The Trump-era reform included shortened time frames and page limits for reviews, removed the requirements that agencies consider the “cumulative” impact of the project on the climate, and excluded privately financed projects that have minimal government funding or involvement.

“Americans deserve regulatory certainty from their government,” Mullin said. “While President Trump maximized efficiencies and prioritized the stewardship of taxpayer dollars, President Biden is pandering to Green New Deal Democrats who have little to no practical understanding of how the permitting process works.”

“We’re taking back legislative power,” Mullin continued. “This bill ensures the Biden Administration cannot make these sweeping regulatory changes without bringing it to Congress first. If President Biden wants to burden American producers and waste taxpayer dollars, he’ll have to get through the system of checks and balances first.”

“Burdensome regulation is why I came to Congress in the first place,” Mullin concluded. “As a small business owner, I know firsthand how heavy regulation can crush a business. Let’s cut the red tape and let our entrepreneurs work.”
