“There isn’t any place in the world that can do a better job of producing products safely, with environmental protection, as cost-effectively as here in the U.S. But you need a regulatory environment that encourages that.  We have just the opposite. We have a regulatory environment that forces us to spend years and millions and millions of dollars to get the permits necessary to do the work, even at existing operations.”
