ClearPath Comments on Proposed Rule, “Categorical Exclusions From Environmental Review”

The United States can only build new clean energy projects and reduce carbon emissions as fast as we can responsibly and efficiently permit the projects to do so. Modernizing the federal permitting process, such as through the optimal use of Categorical Exclusions (CATEXs) for actions that are known to have negligible environmental impact, is one of the most significant actions regulators can take to support the transition to cleaner energy sources.
