Opposition to H.R. 6011, the ROWATA Act

To: Sen. Peters, Rep. Tlaib, Sen. Stabenow, Pres. Biden

From: A verified voter in Dearborn, MI

April 24

I am writing to strongly oppose H.R. 6011, the Right of Way Application and Transparency Accountability Act. While I understand the goal of streamlining energy project permits on federal lands, this bill presents significant risks that outweigh its benefits. My concerns focus on the potential for rushed environmental reviews and inadequate community input. The bill's 60-day timeframe for agencies to notify applicants could lead to hasty decisions with lasting environmental impacts. Additionally, faster approvals without sufficient time for public comment could alienate communities affected by these projects. I urge you to oppose H.R. 6011 and similar legislation that prioritizes speed over thoroughness in permitting. We must protect our environment, ensure community involvement, and maintain the integrity of regulatory processes. Thank you for your attention to this important matter.
