Trump Infrastructure Plan Would Speed Up Pipelines, Cut Environmental Reviews

The Trump administration’s infrastructure proposal released on Feb. 12 would speed up the permitting of U.S. natural gas pipelines, including by cutting Congress out of the process for allowing them to cross national parks.

The proposal fits into President Donald Trump’s broader plan to boost U.S. oil and gas development by slashing red tape, something that has cheered industry but raised concerns among environmentalists and Democratic lawmakers.
