NEPA : Keep public input in the process

In 1970, the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) established protecton for the environment by calling for government agencies to consider environmental impacts in all decisions made.

NEPA requires the government to take into account public input. The Act goes on to say that federal agencies are accountable to the public as the government makes these important decisions.

Now a federal agency is threatening to change key pieces of this environmental law, and we need to act now to protect its integrity, and our oceans.
