Senator McCaskill urges full implementation of federal act

Missouri Democrat U.S. Senator Claire McCaskill is urging continued commitment to an infrastructure permitting law she cosponsored in 2015.

The federal Permitting Act is designed to streamline and speed the federal permitting process for large and complex infrastructure projects.
