Donald Trump’s pipeline promises may be blocked

U.S. President-elect Donald Trump promised to get approvals for energy infrastructure projects, but he is unlikely to achieve his goal as quickly as he planned.

According to Bloomberg, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, which is authorized to grant approval to new natural gas pipelines, may become an obstacle to Donald Trump’s plans. His ability to quicken approvals is offset by the longstanding laws that drive the commission and its current makeup, with three Democrat-appointed members on a five-person board, the news agency indicates.

Apart from that, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission operates under economic and environmental laws with specific approval guidelines strict enough to pull through.
