Inefficient and complex federal permitting processes continue to delay meaningful projects and investments that will stimulate job creation and economic growth. Overlapping agency jurisdiction is creating uncertainty and increasing costs on businesses, communities, and consumers. Outdated and unnecessary regulations continue to inhibit innovation and decrease U.S. economic competitiveness, making America a less attractive place to create the next generation of groundbreaking products and services.
Business Roundtable CEOs support legislative and administrative actions to increase transparency and public engagement in the federal regulatory process, improve the quality of information and cost-benefit analyses used in federal rulemaking, and expedite federal permitting and approval. These reforms are essential to ensure the United States remains a global leader in innovation so America’s businesses and workers can continue to compete and win in the 21st century.
