Trump Admin Releases Updates to National Environmental Policy Act

In January President Trump announced a list of proposed changes to the 50-year-old National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) in an effort to strip away some of the governmental red tape that has built up over the years like plaque in an artery, preventing important infrastructure projects like pipelines, dams, bridges, and roads from getting built (see Trump Seeks to Speed Up Pipeline Projects by Tweaking NEPA Law). Over the past 20 years or so the left has become adept in their use of NEPA to block new projects, claiming environmental harms. Trump wants to reverse that trend. Yesterday the final version of the Trump Administration’s tweaks to NEPA was released, setting off a firestorm of protest from the more radical elements of the “environmental” movement.
