What Was At Stake
The National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) is one of the most effective tools communities possess to prevent polluting projects from impacting the health and environment of their neighborhoods. For decades, it has protected vulnerable communities from dangerous projects while simultaneously incorporating community feedback to construct better, more resilient projects that are less likely to face litigation. After the Trump administration radically weakened NEPA regulations, the Biden administration immediately took steps to reverse these dangerous rollbacks and restore the regulations to their original, common-sense intent. It recently released proposed NEPA regulations that rightly incorporates numerous environmental justice and climate concerns aimed at helping us build out our future clean energy infrastructure of the future in a just and equitable way. The Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) has opened a public comment period on this latest phase of updated regulations, and you can have your voice heard. Urge the CEQ to strengthen NEPA today!
