For fifty years, NEPA has ensured that federal projects, like highways and land management, consider the importance of a healthy environment to the well-being of communities and our economy.
But under new proposed rules, federal agencies are encouraged to ignore important issues (like climate change), cut the public out of the input process, and let developers decide the environmental impact of projects for themselves.
That’s bad news for communities nationwide – and it’s a catastrophe for vulnerable wildlife that will suffer “death by a thousand cuts” as their habitats are chipped away.
STAND UP: Don’t let this administration undermine our nation’s core environmental protections for industry profits!
Dear Mary B. Neumayr, Chair of the Council on Environmental Quality:
