BISAC: LAW034000

The goals of the National Environmental Policy Act are to declare a national environmental policy, provide federal agencies with action-forcing provisions intended to ensure that the goals of the policy are implemented, establish the Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) to provide advice to the President on environmental matters and to monitor the state of the environment, and require the President to submit to Congress an annual report on the state of the environment. This book describes information on the number and type of NEPA analyses; costs and benefits of completing those analyses; and frequency and outcomes of related litigations. (Imprint: Novinka )
