Don’t forget about today’s NTAA Informational Webinar at 4 pm ET to help you comment on the White House Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) proposed rulemaking (NPRM) in the Federal Register to update its regulations for implementing the procedural provisions of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA).
The White House claims these updates would modernize and clarify the regulations to facilitate more efficient, effective, and timely NEPA reviews by Federal agencies in connection with proposals for agency action and would also reduce paperwork and delays and promote better decisions in accordance with section 101 of NEPA.
Comments are due March 10, 2020. You can register for the webinar here. NTAA has a Policy Resource Kit you can use to comment that includes this NTAA Tribal Template Letter.
