National Environmental Policy Act

The National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) is the federal government's charter for protection of the human enviornment. Through NEPA, Congress directed federal agencies to integrate environmental  considerations  into their planning and decision making. The NEPA process provides agency decision makers and the public with an understanding of the potential environmental impacts of proposed actions.
