Re:Refinery Bill--Certainty for Companies, Relief for Consumers

This legislation simply helps establish some certainty for companies making a huge financial commitment and long time commitment to building a new refinery. A federal coordinator would be established who would work with the federal agencies involved in the permitting process. The agencies would have to stick to their time lines without endless delays in making decisions.

There are no changes to environmental standards in this bill. And state and local processes would go on as usual.
