The red tape has been removed opening up the market to flourish
(INTELLIHUB) — More often than not infrastructure projects have been dragged through miles of red tape, killing the true essence of job potential in the United States which has historically been held back by vast environmental restrictions. And although President Donald Trump is an environmentalist at heart, he also understands the need to open up the market to get projects and jobs flowing again.
On Tuesday, President Trump signed an executive order titled “Expediting Environmental Reviews and Approvals For High-Priority Infrastructure Projects,” which will, in theory, get this country cranking again, after a failed onslaught by the Obama Administration to create jobs.
“Infrastructure investment strengthens our economic platform, makes America more competitive, creates millions of jobs, increases wages for American workers, and reduces the costs of goods and services for American families and consumers,” the executive order maintains.
Effectiveness is crucial to our nation’s growth and success but the respect of “property rights and protecting public safety and the environment” is also a factor.
“To that end, it is the policy of the executive branch to streamline and expedite, in a manner consistent with law, environmental reviews and approvals for all infrastructure projects, especially projects that are a high priority for the Nation, such as improving the U.S. electric grid and telecommunications systems and repairing and upgrading critical port facilities, airports, pipelines, bridges, and highways.”
The executive order marks only one of many steps which the President has already taken since his Inauguration on Jan. 20 that will ultimately make America great again.
President Trump’s approval rating currently sits at 57%.
