The Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) is considering updating its NEPA implementing regulations and has issued a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking to modernize and clarify the regulations to facilitate a more efficient, effective, and timely NEPA review process.
CEQ's proposed rule would incorporate elements of the One Federal Decision policy, codify certain case law and CEQ guidance, revise the regulations to reflect current technologies and agency practices, eliminate obsolete provisions, and improve the format and readability of the regulations.
CEQ requests public comment on the NPRM. Comments should be submitted on or before March 10, 2020.
See https://ceq.doe.gov/laws-regulations/regulations.html for instructions on how to submit comments.
