Biden admin slammed for missing deadline to implement key GOP priority in infrastructure law
Biden, Democrats bracing for GOP probes if House flips: Report
Republican Reps. Darrell Issa and Ashley Hinson weigh in on possible challenges Democrats will face if Republicans retake House in midterms.
The Biden administration is being slammed for apparently missing a deadline to implement a key Republican provision of the bipartisan infrastructure law that Republicans say will streamline the permitting process for new projects.
The "One Federal Decision" provision of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) was first introduced by the former Trump administration via executive action but was codified into law when Biden signed the bipartisan bill on Nov. 15. The provision, which is intended to move projects along with less red tape and fewer delays, gave the Biden administration 60 days to alert agencies of categorical exclusions, which reduces the timetable for environmental review of certain projects.
