The executive indicated that it is the state authorities who grant these permits and asked the Ministry of the Environment to give a report on the case, so that they act together with the Attorney General’s Office to prevent these works, if they affect the environment and if buildings that exceed those heights.
The journalist asked her: “What is the federation doing in this regard, to stop this type of abuse by these construction companies?”

The communicator added that there are even complaints in Semarnat, where they said there is no permit for some construction companies, and insisted on questioning what the federation would do to avoid damages.
“That the Ministry of the Environment and the Attorney General’s Office act and that construction be prevented, if it is illegal, and if the environment is affected, and if it is not allowed to build buildings of those heights … all that can be avoided, because it is a violation of the law, but there is also a regulation that has to do with the states, you have to see it, “said López Obrador.
He acknowledged that the federal government must put pressure on state authorities and stressed that the Ministry of the Environment does not issue permits for such projects.
