White House Pledges Renewed Push for Passage of Sen. Manchin’s Permitting Reform Bill

HeadlineSep 30, 2022

Senators approved the stopgap spending bill after West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin abandoned his own energy permitting proposal that would have fast-tracked federal review of permits for new energy projects, including the Mountain Valley fracked gas pipeline. This week the White House said it would continue to work with Senator Manchin to find a new vehicle to get his permitting reform legislation through Congress. Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said in a statement, “The President supports Senator Manchin’s plan because it is necessary for our energy security, and to make more clean energy available to the American people.”
