    The length of permitting process has really gotten ridiculous - sometimes as long as several years. It really is a confusing mess of different agencies, mixed jurisdictions and frankly, at times the legal process has been abused by those in opposition to projects. It does need to be fixed, but there is absolutely no reason to gut rules and regulations and allow the mining companies to run wild while shutting the public out of the process.
