Re: Attachment I—NEPA Archive

Dear Chairman Neumayr:

The following compiled materials, included as Attachment I to the environmental coalition letter, are pertinent to the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) process as it has existed since the statute’s enactment in 1970. They show the Council on Environmental Quality’s (CEQ) understanding of the statute as expressed in two sets of guidelines that preceded the 1978 regulations, as well as numerous guidance documents published through the years. The Archive also contains all of CEQ’s official NEPA publications and annual reports, as well as a compendium of “success stories” showing how the NEPA process, when done correctly, improves federal decisions.

We are submitting Attachment I via a DVD because of the documents’ large file size (roughly one gigabyte). We have also provided a link to a Dropbox folder, accessible online, which contains the same documents. A list of the documents comprising Attachment I is included below. We request that these documents be included in the administrative record.
