A Final Programmatic Environmental Assessment (PEA) and Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) for the Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative (WHTI) in the Land and Sea Environments are available to the public for review. The Final PEA documents a review of potential environmental impacts. Based on the Final PEA, a determination was made that the travel documents proposed for WHTI and use of the travel documents for implementation of the Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act of 2004 (IRTPA) will not have a significant impact on the quality of the human environment such that it would require further analysis under the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA). The Final PEA addresses the substantive comments received on the Draft PEA during the public comment period. The Final PEA resulted in a FONSI that describes the programmatic action alternatives to be used as the approach to meet the requirements of WHTI. The Final PEA and FONSI are made available to the public in accordance with NEPA and the Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) regulations for implementing NEPA.
