Trump vows to speed up permitting for infrastructure projects

President Trump vowed on Friday that he will be taking steps to speed up the permitting process for building roads and bridges through the creation of a special council to navigate through federal “red tape.” The president said his administration is working on a “massive permit reform” to reduce the length infrastructure projects take, which are oftentimes more than 10 years.
