• U.S. Chamber Comments to Unlock American Investment in Critical Infrastructure in Support of CEQ's NEPA Modernization

March 10, 2020

Dear Chair Neumayr:
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce (“the Chamber”) appreciates the opportunity to comment on the Council on Environmental Quality’s (CEQ) proposed revisions to National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) implementing regulations.

The Chamber and its members are strong supporters of NEPA, and recognize its critical role in facilitating a process to consider potentially significant environmental impacts of projects related to federal permits and approvals. However, the decision-making process under NEPA is widely regarded as broken and in need of reforms that can enhance infrastructure as well as environmental stewardship.
