U.S.Chamber Survey Finds Support for Market-Driven Energy Policy, Streamlined Permitting

A new survey by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s Global Energy Institute finds strong public support for an innovation driven, “cleaner, stronger” approach over energy policies centered on expanded government regulations.

In the survey of 1,000 likely 2020 voters conducted in early March, 79 percent of respondents support streamlining or expediting the permitting process to improve, modernize or construct critical energy infrastructure like renewables, pipelines, power plants, transmission lines and export facilities.

Other key survey results include:

  • 73 percent support an agenda that uses more American energy and continues environmental progress, compared to 21 percent who support the Green New Deal.
  • 89 percent support using America’s energy resources responsibly, including domestic natural gas, oil, nuclear, coal and renewable resources.
  • 79 percent agree that the best way to address climate change is through investments into innovation and technology.
