Washington D.C. - U.S. Congressman Greg Pence (IN-06) today released the following statement regarding the White House Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) proposal to modernize outdated National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) regulations.  

“I applaud the Trump Administration’s Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) for updating the totally outdated National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) regulations. These policies haven’t seen reform in over four decades. As a result, countless infrastructure projects have been backlogged for years,” said Congressman Pence. “It’s time we roll back burdensome regulations that stifle growth. Modernizing NEPA regulations will allow schools, bridges, and other vital infrastructure projects to finally move forward safely and efficiently.”
