Policy Resolution 2018-15: Modernizing Western Infrastructure

Policy Resolution 2018-15: Modernizing Western Infrastructure: Western Governors support more efficient infrastructure permitting and environmental review processes without shortening timelines for state input and consultation or compromising natural resource, environmental, or cultural values. Early, meaningful and ongoing state consultation on infrastructure will help prevent delays, reduce duplication, and streamline the process. The Governors also recommend that the federal government encourage joint National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) reviews with states; improve the cooperating agency approval process; and work directly with states to use up-to-date state data and analyses in the NEPA process. Read, download the resolution.
