Department of Energy - National Environmental Policy Act Implementing Procedures (Final)
Dec. 4, 2020
The DOE is updating its NEPA implementing procedures pertaining to authorizations issued under the Natural Gas Act (NGA). These changes will improve the efficiency of the DOE decision-making process by saving time and expense in the NEPA compliance process and eliminating unnecessary environmental documentation for these actions that DOE has determined normally do not have significant effects. This final rule is effective 4 January 2021. POC is Mr. Mark J. Matarrese, Office of Fossil Energy, Mark.Matarrese@hq.doe.gov, 202-586-0491. (Federal Register: 4 December 2020 [Rule] Pages 78197-78205).
