Council on Environmental Quality June 2018 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Update to the Regulations for Implementing the Procedural Provisions of the National Environmental Policy Act
Document Number: 2018-13246
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2018-06-20
Agency: Council on Environmental Quality, Executive Office of the President
The Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) is considering updating its implementing regulations for the procedural provisions of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). Over the past four decades, CEQ has issued numerous guidance documents but has amended its regulations substantively only once. Given the length of time since its NEPA implementing regulations were issued, CEQ solicits public comment on potential revisions to update the regulations and ensure a more efficient, timely, and effective NEPA process consistent with the national environmental policy stated in NEPA.
