Ecology Center comments on USFS proposal to revise procedures 
for National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) compliance
We submitted comments on February 2nd in response to a Forest Service notice to revise its procedures 
implementing NEPA to achieve “streamlining,” “increasing efficiency”and “completing more projects.” 
Our overall position is that the USFS procedures must remain true to NEPA’s core values of environmental
protection and meaningful public participation, as these have clearly resulted in many positive gains for 
the environment.
