Environmental Permitting – Progress on Streamlining    

Are environmental reviews and permitting processes slowing and adding costs to your co-op projects? Do endangered species cause additional burdens? Join us to discuss how the administration is working to ensure federal environmental reviews and permitting processes for infrastructure projects are better coordinated, predictable, and transparent. Find out what reforms are proposed to fix the Endangered Species Act and how NRECA is advancing co-op priorities to reduce current decision-making inefficiencies. What else might be accomplished and what roadblocks remain? How will ESA species listings continue to effect co-ops?  

Speakers:

  • Janelle Lemen, Director, Regulatory Issues, NRECA
  • Dana Heil, Environmental Regulatory Compliance Coordinator, Georgia Transmission Corporation
