This panel will cover recent developments affecting environmental reviews under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and its state counterpart, the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), with a focus on how these developments affect the analysis of greenhouse gas emissions and potential climate impacts of a proposed project. Climate impact analysis in NEPA and CEQA reviews has long been a subject of contention among various stakeholders, and has recently received attention in high-profile rulemaking proceedings and litigation both at the federal and state levels. Seasoned practitioners will discuss these developments and their practical impacts on project proposals going forward.
- How the recently-finalized CEQ rule updating NEPA implementing regulations may affect agency consideration of the anticipate climate impacts of a proposed action.
- The recent California Court of Appeals decision in Golden Door Properties LLC and how it is likely to impact CEQA mitigation measures for GHG emissions.
- What types of projects are most likely to be impacted by these recent NEPA/CEQA developments.
- How these developments affect the interplay of NEPA and CEQA where a proposed project triggers both types of review.
