USDA/APHIS RIN: 0579-AC60 Publication ID: Spring 2010 
Title: National Environmental Policy Act Implementing Procedures 
Abstract: This action would amend the regulations that set out our National Environmental Policy Act implementing procedures. The proposed amendments would make clear that our decision to prepare an environmental impact statement or an environmental assessment, or to apply a categorical exclusion, is based on an action's potential effect on the human environment; make additions to the list of types of actions that qualify for a categorical exclusion because of their negligible environmental impacts; and provide for environmental assessment processes that can be used in special circumstances when action must be taken quickly. These changes are intended to improve the clarity and effectiveness of the regulations.
