National Environmental Policy Act

sample newbie code
The National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) requires federal agencies to consider potential environmental impacts before taking major actions, such as issuing permits or making decisions that affect federal lands. If significant impacts are likely, the agency must prepare an environmental impact statement (EIS). EPA's primary role under NEPA is to review documents on proposed federal agency actions and prepare written comments.
