What we're watching: GOP's energy package
[UNSUPPORTED BLOCK TYPE: header-three]
Why it matters: It's the starting point for the GOP in any potential deal with the Senate to overhaul environmental permitting laws.
- That legislation would curb the scope and timelines for National Environmental Policy Act reviews of energy and infrastructure projects and limit lawsuits challenging environmental permits.
- We expect that to be at the center of the GOP effort to change NEPA.
- That includes bills to repeal parts of the Inflation Reduction Act.
Quick take: We're skeptical that any of this will become law this year, but it's worth watching how the debate unfolds after last year's Manchin permitting bill fight.
