Rubio, Cramer Introduce Fair and Timely Citizens Suit Act

May 9, 2024 | Press Releases

Partisan actors often use citizen suit provisions of the Clean Air Act, Clean Water Act, and Endangered Species Act to stifle energy and economic development projects with time-consuming litigation.

U.S. Senators Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Kevin Cramer (R-ND) introduced the Fair and Timely Citizens Suit Act to ensure defendants have sufficient time to resolve a citizen suit challenge and, should the challenge go to court, that the decision is reached in a timely manner.

  • “Malicious groups commonly use sneaky legal tools to stifle efforts to unleash American energy and economic power by drawing out the legal proceedings and making frivolous claims. My Fair and Timely Citizens Suits Act will ensure that citizen suits are adjudicated in a fair and timely manner.” – Senator Rubio
  • “Climate activists flippantly wield lawsuits to tie the energy, development, and infrastructure projects they hate in endless litigation. The Fair and Timely Citizens Suit Act will provide certainty, streamlining the citizen suit process to ensure stability and timeliness so defendants aren’t left in legal limbo.” – Senator Cramer

This bill has been endorsed by the National Endangered Species Act Reform Coalition, the National Association of Manufacturers, American Petroleum Institute, National Water Resources Association, Public Lands Council, National Cattlemen’s Beef Association, Heritage Action, and the American Farm Bureau Federation.
