Hanna Sponsors Bill To Streamline Army Corp Permitting Process
Under the bill, the lack of a committed end-user would not be a reason to deny a permit that meets all other requirements.
Mohawk Valley EDGE has been denied a permit by the Army Corp of Engineers because it doesn't have an end-user for a proposed nanotechnology project on the SUNY IT campus.
Hanna says economic development officials in Henry County, Virginia are experiencing the same problem.
The bill is also sponsored by central New York Congressmen BIl Owens and Dan Maffei, along with Virginia Representatives Robert Hurt and Morgan Griffith.
