Earlier this month, the White House Council for Environmental Quality (CEQ) finalized its update of the governing regulations for the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) rule.  This marks the first comprehensive review of NEPA since its 1978 promulgation.

We recently published a client alert on the overhaul of the NEPA rule, which you can read in full here.
