The Coalition for American Heritage joined leading environmental organizations, like the Sierra Club and the National Parks Conservation Association, in a letter to the House Natural Resources Committee. Our letter will be included in the public record of the Committee’s hearing on “Modernizing the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA).”
Like the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA), NEPA is critical to ensuring public involvement in federal development. We urged the Committee to recognize the enormous public good that NEPA achieves. Modernization of the law should be focused on increasing public engagement, securing sufficient funding for federal reviews, and balancing development with protection of America’s natural and cultural resources.
