Jim Burnley was quoted on February 12, 2018, about President Trump's infrastructure plan and the proposed budget that may become a political battle over an increased investment in the initiative. The proposal also includes revisions to the streamlining and permitting process that may impact environmental regulations.

"It's an excellent starting point for the discussion that will occur in Congress," Mr. Burnley said. "It indicates a continuing serious effort to reform the whole federal permitting and approval system. The other way it's important is it encourages Congress to be aggressive in leveraging federal resources."

Burnley added, "That streamlining the environmental review and permitting processes is something not only feasible but also something Trump has already executed upon."
