This Act is designed to streamline the review procedures for a given project that requires multiple environmental permits “by establishing a mechanism in state government which will coordinate administrative decision-making procedures, and related quasi-judicial and judicial review, pertaining to these permits.” The Act is designed to promote a better exchange of information among state agencies, as well as a faster process for project permitting.
