"No Sign Of NEPA Climate Standards 4 Years After CEQ Guidance"

"Standards to guide federal agencies in using the National Environmental Policy Act to address greenhouse gas emissions and climate resiliency have been on the to-do list of President Obama's Council on Environmental Quality for several years."

"CEQ proposed a draft guidance four years ago, but after a public comment period the draft all but vanished, and the White House office isn't offering clues about where it went -- or whether it might re-emerge.

At a Feb. 14 press briefing on her last day as CEQ chairwoman, Nancy Sutley said a revised guidance is still 'being worked on.'"
