WASHINGTON, D.C. – Provisions to streamline and strengthen energy project permitting included in the White House and House Republicans debt ceiling negotiations are welcomed by the Electric Power Supply Association (EPSA), which represents competitive power suppliers providing about 150,000 MW of electric generation from all types of resources throughout the U.S.
EPSA President and CEO Todd Snitchler issued the following statement Tuesday as discussions continued surrounding the legislation.
“EPSA has been very supportive of efforts to reform permitting and siting as a part of ensuring America’s energy future and to help secure power system reliability. We are encouraged to see movement on the issue in Congress as part of ongoing debt ceiling negotiations. We recognize that there are still miles to go before any legislation is finalized and await the outcome of the negotiations, but we remain encouraged by the reported progress and will continue to press members of Congress to find a workable compromise that advances America’s energy expansion, both in this bill and if additional steps are needed in future legislation.”
