White House office seeks comment on updating NEPA regulations
The Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) is an office in the Executive Office of the President that is responsible for issuing regulations to guide agency compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). CEQ has issued an Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (ANPRM) asking questions about the NEPA process, the scope of NEPA analysis, and CEQ’s current regulations. The public comments received might lead to a future proposal for changes to CEQ’s regulations and, eventually, the ways that agencies comply with NEPA.
Comments are due by July 20, 2018
