Bishop on President Trump’s Infrastructure and Budget Proposals

WASHINGTON, D.C., February 12, 2018 -

Washington, D.C. – House Committee on Natural Resources Chairman Rob Bishop (R-UT) issued the following statement in reaction to the Trump administration’s infrastructure and budget proposals:

“The provisions within President Trump’s infrastructure proposal streamlining federal permitting are what will enable success on the ground and maximum return on investment for communities across the country. The President’s plan also includes bold ideas to invest in rural communities and spur water and power development with a look towards moving certain responsibilities back to the states where they ultimately belong. I look forward to working with the administration and Committees in the House and Senate to forge consensus on a bipartisan legislative product.

“Both the budget and infrastructure plans include new ideas to address infrastructure and maintenance challenges on public lands. The Committee looks forward to reviewing these proposals, along with other concepts within the budget, to expand access and improve management of federal lands and resources.”

Background:  During the 115th Congress, the Committee and its five Subcommittees have held 38 oversight and legislative hearings related to infrastructure. Click here for additional information.

On Wednesday, the Subcommittee on Water, Power and Oceans will hold an oversight hearing titled, “The State of the Nation’s Water and Power Infrastructure.”
