US/ICOMOS Signs on to Letter Advocating Against Proposed Revisions to the National Environmental Protection Act

US/ICOMOS signed on to a letter representing the collective comments of 328 organizations and tribal nations, representing millions of members and supporters, responding to the Council on Environmental Quality’s (CEQ) proposed revisions to regulations implementing the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). Many of our organizations and members will also be submitting individual comments.

The letter states that “the proposed revision of CEQ’s NEPA regulations is deeply flawed, violates the letter and intent of NEPA and will not satisfy the objectives of this exercise as articulated in the preamble. It is therefore arbitrary and capricious and must be withdrawn.”

Read the full letter here: NEPA Final Draft Comment Letter 3 10 20.
