Letters & Testimony

Letters
Dear Leader McConnell and Minority Leader Schumer: 
 
Our organizations, which represent nearly every sector of the U.S. economy, urge the Senate to pass H.R. 3359, the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency Act of 2017. This legislation would deepen America’s increasingly maturing public-private efforts to safeguard cyberspace. 
 
Letters
The Global Energy Institute (GEI), an affiliate of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce (“the Chamber”) appreciates the opportunity to respond to the Notice of Inquiry (“NOI”)1 from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (“FERC” or “Commission”) as the Commission reviews the current policy framework for the certification of new natural gas transportation facilities (the “Certificate Policy Statement”).  
Letters
Dear Chairman Barrasso and Ranking Member Carper:  
 
We, the undersigned organizations, enthusiastically support the nomination of Mary Neumayr as Chairwoman of the Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ).   
 
Ms. Neumayr’s extensive public service experience with the House of Representatives, Department of Energy, and Department of Justice, makes her an excellent choice to lead the CEQ, which is responsible for implementing the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and coordinating federal environmental activities and efforts. 
Testimony
Good afternoon. Thank you for the opportunity to present testimony on this important issue. 
 
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce strongly supports the intent of the proposed rule and applauds EPA for finally addressing a longstanding problem inherent in much of its regulatory decisionmaking processes.  
 
While the agency’s proposed reforms are clearly controversial, they are grounded in a universally accepted democratic principle: citizens have a right to the data and information that are used in the development of public policy.  
Letters
Dear Chairman Walden and Ranking Member Pallone:  
 
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce appreciates the Committee’s work on commonsense improvements to the Environmental Protection Agency’s New Source Review (NSR) preconstruction permitting program, and we support the New Source Review Permitting Reform Discussion Draft that was the subject of your May 16, 2018 hearing.
