The Trump administration is going after one of our bedrock environmental laws: the National Environmental Policy Act.
The National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) empowers local communities to protect themselves and their environment from dangerous, rushed, or poorly planned federal projects. Unfortunately, changes being considered by the Trump administration could make this simple public participation a thing of the past.
Don’t let this administration cut the public out of decisions about our public lands and environment. Here’s how you can take action now in three easy steps:
1. Copy the following message:
The National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) is a critical law that has empowered local communities to protect themselves and their environment from dangerous, rushed, and poorly planned federal projects for over 45 years. I am strongly opposed to any changes that would in any way restrict public input, limit consideration of project alternatives, establish hard deadlines for project approval, or narrow or eliminate federal agencies’ obligations to consider a project’s climate impacts.
