WASHINGTON, D.C. – The American Fuel & Petrochemical Manufacturers (AFPM) supports President Trump’s Executive Orders that will create clear pathways for the permitting process and support energy infrastructure development. Expanded investment in energy and petrochemical infrastructure is critical for the United States to meet the growing demand for our products and to gain energy independence.

“Today’s actions will go a long way toward ensuring our nation’s energy infrastructure will continue meeting the world’s increased demand for affordable, clean, and reliable fuels and petrochemical products,” said AFPM President and CEO Chet Thompson. “AFPM’s members are committed to protecting our nation’s water and air. By clarifying the roles of federal and state agencies in permitting decisions, today’s order will help promote investment in critical energy infrastructure development and associated good-paying jobs, while maintaining important environmental protections.”
