The National Association of Environmental Professionals (NAEP) will host the "Update to the Regulations Implementing the Procedural Provisions of the National Environmental Policy Act" on Tuesday, March 3, 2020.
On January 9, 2020, the Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) announced a notice of proposed rulemaking titled “Update to the Regulations Implementing the Procedural Provisions of the National Environmental Policy Act.” For the first time since CEQ promulgated its regulations over 40 years ago, CEQ is proposing to comprehensively update its National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) regulations. CEQ proposes to modernize and clarify the CEQ regulations to facilitate more efficient, effective, and timely NEPA reviews by simplifying and clarifying regulatory requirements, incorporating key elements of the One Federal Decision policy, codifying certain case law and CEQ guidance, updating the regulations to reflect current technologies and agency practices, eliminating obsolete provisions, and improving the format and readability of the regulations. The proposed rule seeks to reduce unnecessary paperwork and delays and to promote better decision-making consistent with NEPA’s statutory requirements.
