CEQ is considering updating its NEPA implementing regulations and has issued a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking to modernize and clarify the regulations to facilitate a more efficient, effective, and timely NEPA review process.
CEQ's proposed rule would incorporate elements of the One Federal Decision policy, codify certain case law and CEQ guidance, revise the regulations to reflect current technologies and agency practices, eliminate obsolete provisions, and improve the format and readability of the regulations.
In June 2018, CEQ issued an Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking that solicited recommendations on potential revisions to update the regulations and ensure a more efficient, timely, and effective NEPA process. The submittals received during the public comment period, which closed on August 20, 2018, may be viewed at https://www.regulations.gov/docket?D=CEQ-2018-0001.
