Bradley attorney Sid Trant was quoted in the Birmingham Business Journal on what environmental policy changes from the Trump administration could mean for Alabama industry, specifically pipeline projects. While the major pipeline projects Trump has cleared the way for aren’t in Alabama, the state – particularly Birmingham – is home to a number of existing pipelines and manufacturers that could benefit from pipeline construction. Trant explained that one issue the energy industry faces is the need for improving its pipeline infrastructure.
“You have more problems with aging infrastructure than you do with new,” he said. “It’s just an investment we have to make. For Alabama, it does make a difference because we have pipelines that move through the state now and we have more being built at this point. We want our state to grow and have the resources that it needs to grow and supply the population and businesses. That’s something we’re going to face.”
