From Yahoo Finance:

“There’s a lot of emotion around” the environmental issues at play here, said Philip Rossetti, an energy expert at a group called the R Street Institute and a former GOP congressional aide on the issue. He said that the partisan fights “kind of drowns out the more reasonable policy solutions that actually would improve the environment and help us to build better things.”

Rossetti and some other experts contend that clean energy projects could be the key beneficiary of energy permitting reform, even more so perhaps than those projects coming from fossil fuels companies.

“In fact, a lot of the oil and gas stuff is already exempted from NEPA,” said Rossetti, because an individual oil well or natural gas well is such a known quantity.”
