Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) released the text of his proposed changes to the country’s process for approving energy projects, seeking to make his case to skeptical lawmakers on both sides of the aisle.
Manchin’s text includes several provisions previously outlined in a fact sheet, including those that would benefit a controversial natural gas pipeline that runs through his home state known as the Mountain Valley Pipeline.
The legislation would also limit the timelines for environmental reviews that are part of the approval process to two years for major projects and one year for those that are less significant.
The new legislation also requires that a list of 25 energy projects of strategic national importance be kept by the president for 10 years. For seven of those years, “five of the 25 projects must be related to either fossil fuels or biofuels, six must be for clean energy and four must be related to critical minerals,” The Hill reports.
