It’s Past Time to Update the NSR 
Rep. Morgan Griffith (VA-09)
Energy Innovation Agenda: Clean Energy Infrastructure
Bill: New Source Review Permitting Improvement Act

Rep. Griffith’s legislation takes a common sense approach to streamlining the New Source Review (NSR) permitting process at the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The current NSR program, meant to prevent pollution emissions from industrial facilities, actually discourages these facilities from making upgrades that would ultimately lead to lower emissions.

The New Source Review Permitting Improvement Act will make long overdue regulatory changes so that manufacturers and others can make pollution-reducing upgrades to their facilities without running afoul of the EPA.
