Bishop Statement on U.S. Court of Appeals Decision on Freeport LNG Export Terminal


WASHINGTON, D.C., August 15, 2017 -

Today, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit issued a unanimous opinion that the U.S. Department of Energy conducted appropriate review under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) in its approval of the Freeport LNG export terminal project.  Chairman Rob Bishop (R-UT) issued the following statement:

“Today’s opinion is a short-term victory. NEPA was created as a guidepost for federal agencies conducting environmental reviews, not a weapon for environmental litigants to block energy infrastructure. Unless Congress enacts reforms to safeguard NEPA’s intent, the environmental lobby’s endless arsenal of procedural tactics will continue to paralyze all types of economic activities.”
