Citing “protracted” construction permitting procedures in need of streamlining, U.S. Rep. Spencer Bachus, R-Ala., recently detailed the Responsibly and Professionally Invigorating Development (RAPID) Act, which he co-sponsors.
The bill would seek to eliminate duplicate state and federal reviews on construction projects along with establishing deadlines and a statute of limitations for environmental impact studies. The RAPID Act also calls for the designation of a lead agency early in the project approval process, according to a report from Al.com.
