Johnson Introduces Bill to Build the Wall FASTER

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Representative Dusty Johnson (R-S.D.) today introduced the Furthering American Security by Tempering Environmental Regulations Act or the FASTER Act, which would strengthen the Secretary of Homeland Security’s ability to waive environmental reviews required by the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and the Endangered Species Act (ESA). Specifically, this legislation would reinforce U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s capability to expediently secure our nation’s border with a wall.

“I’ve supported border security, and it’s important we do it the right way,” said Johnson. “Over and over again, my constituents ask me why it’s taking so long to build the border wall. Government regulations stall progress on crucial projects all the time. The FASTER Act will allow DHS and the president to build a border wall more quickly and without overburdensome regulations standing in the way.”

    Such a dumb move. People realize he messed up and now is trying to do damage control.

    This bill also has zero chance of going anywhere in the House while Aunt Nancy is Speaker.

    This is merely a feckless attempt to rehabilitate his huge mistake.

    Who else is hearing a primary is going to happen?

    Even if it is damage control to make up for a vote, isn’t that the point of criticizing him? To get him back on track?

    There won’t be a primary, at least not by anyone of consequence.

      There’s no sincerity in this. It’s PR only. He hadn’t stated he made a mistake. He’d vote the same way again if given the chance.

        He will be given that chance. The House will vote on an Act to override Trump’s soon-to-come veto. Dems need 55 Republican votes to override (apologies if math error, pre-coffee post). So, we’ll see if Dusty’s stance has changed.

    I disagree. I’m happy to see this legislation. The real reason we don’t have border security is not (enough) people have voted people in who TRULY believe in it. That’s really the issue. If people want pro-border security politicians, they’d have voted them in long before now.

      That isn’t true. The people have voted for border security. It’s simply the case that neither party supports it beyond occasional lip service and the people are left without any other option.

        If you’re that stupid, please consider not voting in future elections.

        Also, if we have such a great workforce here and don’t need foreign labor- why does South Dakota use so many foreign worker visas during harvest?

        The only Wall I love and support is Wall Drug!

          Because they’re cheap. The owners of Wall-Drug supress what would be the prevailing wage by utilizing cheaper foreign labor.

    Let’s get rid of Johnson in the primary.
    He needs to hear about his mistake in any of his public meetings
