LETTER: WGA backs efficient infrastructure permitting for Senate hearing on Fixing America’s Surface Transportation Act

The Western Governors’ Association expresses support for more efficient infrastructure permitting to Senate Committee on Environment & Public Works leadership prior to a July 10, 2019 hearing on reauthorization of the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation (FAST) Act. The outreach to Chairman John Barrasso and Ranking Member Thomas R. Carper notes the FAST Act has been a "significant step in improving the federal infrastructure approval process." The Governors, in the letter signed by WGA Executive Director Jim Ogsbury, also urge Congress to include funding and provisions in the bill that support fish and wildlife crossings and habitat connectivity.
