Comment Letter on the Forest Service’s Proposed Rulemaking to Revise its NEPA Regulations

NPCA is a signatory of the conservation community's comments on the Forest Service’s proposed rule regarding National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) compliance, 84 Fed. Reg. 27,544 (June 13, 2019), RIN 0596–AD31. 

The organizations that signed the letter collectively represent decades of experience with the Forest Service’s implementation of NEPA across the spectrum of land management actions, including forest planning, vegetation, wildlife, mineral, range, aquatic, travel, and recreation management decisions. The organizations and their members would be adversely affected by this proposal, which would immediately eliminate important procedural rights that they and other members of the public rely on.
