NRCA issues a statement about the Responsibly and Professionally Invigorating Development (RAPID) Act

NRCA commends Congress for approving legislation that will reduce regulatory burdens and ultimately improve economic growth and job creation throughout the U.S. On Dec. 3, the House approved a final version of the Responsibly and Professionally Invigorating Development (RAPID) Act , which reforms and streamlines the permitting process for private and public construction projects that require environmental permits. The RAPID Act was included in a surface transportation bill (H.R. 22) passed by Congress and signed into law by President Obama.

NRCA supported this "permit streamlining" legislation given that delays in permitting can stall work for contractors on many types of construction projects. Under current regulations, it can often take years or even decades to gain the necessary approval for major private and public construction projects. The RAPID Act streamlines the regulatory process under which many public and private construction projects obtain required environmental permits so they can proceed in a timely manner.
