Manchin pledges to propose resolution to reverse Biden’s permitting rule

Senator Joe Manchin announced his plan to lead a Congressional Review Act resolution to overturn the Biden administration’s final rule on permitting, citing concerns about costly delays and increased litigation due to the new rule. The Energy Department’s rule aims to streamline the permitting process by adjusting categorical exclusions and reversing Trump-era rules that limited public participation. Manchin, a vocal proponent of reforming the permitting process, has previously supported other CRA resolutions targeting the Biden administration’s energy policies. Despite these efforts, President Biden has vetoed all resolutions so far.
