NEPA Under Siege

The Georgetown Environmental Law & Policy Institute has issued NEPA Under Siege, a report addressing the current political attacks on NEPA. Authored by the Institute’s Deputy Executive Director, Robert Dreher, the report describes the way that NEPA functions in federal decision-making, identifies the many current legislative and administrative threats to its integrity and survival, and offers a critical evaluation of the rationales advanced by NEPA’s opponents for these attacks on the law. The report closes with a call for meaningful improvements in NEPA’s implementation, rather than attempts to circumvent its mandate.
