McCarthy Lauds Updates to NEPA Review Process  

Jan 9, 2020
Press Release


Today, Congressman Kevin McCarthy released the following statement supporting the White House Council on Environmental Quality’s (CEQ) new draft regulations to modernize the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) review process:
 
“Since NEPA was first enacted fifty years ago, it has been manipulated by anti-development groups and other special interests in order to delay or block projects and stifle progress. The commonsense reforms proposed by the CEQ today are expected to improve the efficiency and timeliness of NEPA reviews to allow projects to advance, while also preserving NEPA’s underlying purpose to ‘encourage productive and enjoyable harmony between man and his environment’ (Public Law 91-190).  I commend President Trump and CEQ Chairwoman Mary Neumayr for taking this important step towards updating the NEPA process to fit today’s modern world.”
