 “NEPA Policy Update”
Horst Greczmiel, Associate Director, Council on Environmental Quality
Ron Bass, Senior Consultant, ICF International 

 This webinar will provide a review of recently approved and pending NEPA Policy on programmatic – broad scale – environmental assessments (EA) and environmental impact statements (EIS), and the revised draft guidance on the analysis of greenhouse gas emissions and climate change under NEPA. In December 2014, the Council on Environmental Quality published Final Guidance for Effective Use of Programmatic NEPA Reviews and published the Revised Draft Guidance on Integrating Analysis of Greenhouse Gases and Climate Change into environmental documents prepared pursuant to NEPA for a public review and comment. The public review and comment period on the revised draft guidance ended on March 25, 2015 (https://www.whitehouse.gov/administration/eop/ceq/initiatives/nepa/ghg-guidance ). Mr. Horst Greczmiel, CEQ’s Associate Director for NEPA Oversight, will provide an update on other recently released guidance documents as well as other CEQ initiatives. He will also discuss other recent developments that impact NEPA practice from the Administration and Congress. Mr. Ron Bass, a Senior Consultant with ICF International who provides strategic advice on NEPA implementation and conducts peer reviews of environmental documents will provide guidance on how to integrate the recent guidance into environmental review documents prepared pursuant to NEPA.
