NEPA and CEQA: Integrating State and Federal Environmental Reviews (Draft)

The Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ), in collaboration with the California Governor’s Office of Planning and Research, issued on March 5, 2013, a draft handbook on integrating NEPA and California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) review processes. The guide provides practitioners with an overview of NEPA and CEQA as well as valuable suggestions for developing a single environmental review process that can meet the requirements of both statutes.

It will be available for 45 days of public comment to encourage a comprehensive final product that promotes maximum efficiency.   Further information, including commenting instructions, is available on CEQ's website.
