Lessons Learned Quarterly Report, December 2004

The National Environmental Policy Act turns 35 on January 1, 2005! This landmark legislation altered the Federal decisionmaking process. In this issue of LLQR, Ray Berube, retired Deputy Assistant Secretary for Environment, looks back at how NEPA compliance procedures have evolved at DOE. Our lead article looks at how the Internet is becoming an increasingly useful NEPA tool. We hope you will find helpful suggestions throughout LLQR on how we can continue to improve and modernize NEPA implementation, and, as always, we welcome your suggestions for continuous improvement.
