Jerry Howard, chief executive officer of this National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), attended the current White House event announcing proposed regulatory reforms into the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and issued the following announcement:

“This proposal to modernize and reform the NEPA review process will streamline the permitting process and reduce unnecessary costs and delays for vital infrastructure projects that are needed to support residential land development projects. For the housing industry, those uncertainties and delays create challenges for communities, business and builders, and further exacerbate the current housing affordability crisis. We welcome this latest action by the administration to remove regulatory barriers that hinder housing and economic growth.”
