ARA Co-Signs Comments to Council on Environmental Quality for Comment Extension on NEPA Phase 2

Aug 21 2023

The Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) has proposed a complex rule that would impact the federal review process of projects and activities, large and small in the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). 

The proposed rule raises many complex and important practical questions concerning topics such as costs, feasibility, and timelines, which would benefit from additional time for project sponsors to evaluate the proposed rule. The broadness of the scope of proposed requirements and their impacts requires additional time for the business community and other affected parties to more respond with constructive comments. 

Due to this, a comment extension period of a minimum of 45 days is requested for business partners, stakeholders, and other affected parties to adequately respond to the proposals in this regulation revisions.
