AGA Filed and Joined Comments on CEQ’s Interim GHG Guidance
On April 10, 2023, AGA filed comments responding to the White House Council on Environmental Quality’s (CEQ) Interim NEPA Guidance on Consideration of Greenhouse Gas Emissions and Climate Change. AGA’s comments highlight the critical role that the natural gas industry plays in the clean energy transition, as well as our strong support for a fair and efficient federal permitting system that enables the timely review, approval, and construction of the critical energy infrastructure that is crucial to meeting U.S. energy needs and reducing GHG emissions. AGA’s comments also raised several significant concerns with CEQ’s Interim guidance, including that the Guidance will generate regulatory uncertainty, increase information requirements, and slow permitting reviews for critical projects. In addition to our comments, AGA also joined extensive comments filed by a broad, cross-industry coalition representing most major sectors of the U.S. economy and the Natural Gas Council. Links to these comments are provided below.
