U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, today released the following statement after President Trump issued a series of executive documents that will prioritize energy infrastructure and streamline regulatory reviews in the United States.

“President Trump recognizes the importance of energy infrastructure, and that is a welcome sign. We need a president who understands the significant contributions that infrastructure makes to our economy and our national security,” Murkowski said. “I support consultation with the people affected by infrastructure projects, and we must ensure that they are built and operated responsibly. However, for too long federal agencies have been sources of unnecessary delay and uncertainty. Reform is long overdue, and the president’s actions today are a good start.”

Murkowski is chairman of the Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources.
