AGC recently participated in a roundtable discussion with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Acting Administrator Andrew Wheeler to commemorate the one-year anniversary of the Smart Sectors Partnership and highlight initial successes.  AGC took the opportunity to express support of EPA’s efforts to improve the clarity and speed of the permits it issues.  AGC understands that state agencies issue most environmental permits; however, states use EPA’s permits/programs as a model.  Improvements EPA makes can have a positive impact on state-issued permits.  To this end, EPA is working on a policy for how the agency assesses the adequacy of state pollution control programs.  Click here to see EPA’s priority goals and latest action plan.
