Washington, D.C. – Congresswoman Cheney applauds the “One Federal Decision” Memorandum of Understanding and President Trump’s ongoing commitment to improving the burdensome federal permitting process.

“President Trump understands how inefficient, burdensome, and costly the federal permitting process has been on industries that affect prosperous businesses and communities in Wyoming. By signing the “One Federal Decision” Memorandum of Understanding, the EPA, Departments of Interior, Agriculture, and Energy are heralding in an important and welcome change, providing streamlining and relief from years of an overreaching federal bureaucracy. A new permitting process and single lead agency to handle federal permits has been long overdue. I’m encouraged and pleased President Trump and his administration are taking these necessary steps to rebuild our economy, bring back jobs, and get the federal government out of the way.”
