3/10, Comment Deadline to Save NEPA!

The Trump administration is proposing to gut NEPA, a landmark environmental law enacted in the 70s to promote transparency, informed decision making, and public input when federal agencies make decisions that impact the environment.

Trump’s rollback…
1) Would limit public input on proposed projects, such as fracked gas pipelines, allowing only submission of highly specific technical data
2) Could limit public hearings to online webinars only
3) Prohibits agencies from considering cumuluative impacts of projects, including pipelines, power plants, and offshore drilling operations, and their impacts on the global climate
4) Would restrict FERC from analyzing alternative routes for pipelines, giving the agency even more capacity to “rubber stamp” these projects

Help protect NEPA, a fundamental law that promotes community empowerment and protects demcratic decision making when it comes to protecting and sustaining our environment. Submit your comment by March 10th!
