Phone 2 Action - NEPA Regulations Revisions 2020

Proposed revisions to NEPA processes would fast-track projects like oil and gas pipelines and make it harder for the public to learn about and comment on them.

Please urge the White House Council on Environmental Quality to reject proposed revisions that would:

  • Allow federal agencies to ignore climate change impacts of proposed projects and the cumulative impacts of many similar projects.
  • Make it difficult for average citizens to comment on projects by imposing highly technical requirements in order for public comments to be considered.
  • Allow private companies to analyze expected environmental impacts of projects they propose themselves, despite likely conflicts of interest.
  • Invite federal agencies to substitute their own procedures for NEPA and bypass the public processes of this important environmental law completely.

Deadline to comment: March 10, 2020
