The NAM is continuing its legal efforts to fight for a pro-growth environment for manufacturers – this time by filing an amicus brief to support the Government’s approval of Shell’s Appomattox Exploration Plan to drill a deepwater well in the Gulf of Mexico.
This case could have long-term, adverse impacts to ALL operators and ALL permits and permitting, and environmental analyses being used by the Government to approve various types of offshore activities, not just new wells.
In essence, a court decision delaying this permit would likely grind the approval process for all existing offshore permits and approvals to a halt again.
In this economy, we don’t need these types of obstacles that hurt manufacturers and stand in the way of job creation.
