Denis Marquez denounces the filing of a package of “disastrous” legislative measures for environmental protection

The spokesperson for the Puerto Rican Independence Party (PIP) in the House of Representatives, Denis Marquezdenounced this Monday the recent filing of a package of 13 measures – most of them authored by members of the Popular Democratic Party (PPD) – that reduce the range of government action in the evaluation and granting of permits, limit citizen participation and allow grant them through the fast track.

“They are projects that, obviously, are aimed not at streamlining, but at a clear debauchery of a permit granting process for the benefit of various sectors”warned the pro-independence legislator during a press conference at the Capitol.

Among the measures presented last week, is the House Bill 2057which modifies the scope of the single permit and reduces the time for government agencies to evaluate the impacts of the proposed work, and the House Bill 2058which provides that, in projects subsidized with federal funds, public or municipal agencies will have 20 business days to issue comments.
