Americans for Prosperity (AFP) has praised President Donald Trump’s recent executive order designed to reduce confusion and decrease duplication regarding large construction and infrastructure initiatives by mandating cooperation among federal agencies.
“We’re pleased that the Trump administration is continuing its effort to slice through burdensome, duplicative processes across government,” Christine Harbin, who serves as AFP’s vice president of external affairs, said in a release commending the directive. “Particularly in the federal infrastructure space, permitting holdups can add years to projects that would otherwise be improving our infrastructure and contributing to our economy. This is a significant step in reducing the duplication and wait times, one of the critical reforms needed to these projects.”
AFP had previously sketched out its priorities in a letter co-signed by dozens of industry stakeholders and dispatched to U.S. elected officials on May 11, encouraging senators and representatives to “prioritize fiscal responsibility while addressing the nation’s infrastructure needs.”
