CEQ is considering potential revisions to update and clarify CEQ NEPA regulations. Specifically, revisions to update and clarify the NEPA process and the scope of NEPA review. The greater degree of specificity, the more beneficial the input will be in the process. This would include providing specific recommendations on additions, deletions, and modifications to the text of CEQ’s NEPA regulations and justifications.–  To view the request in full click here.
