DOT/FTA RIN: 2132-AB03 Publication ID: 2012 
Title:+Environmental Impact and Related Procedures (RRR) 
Abstract: This rulemaking proposes to establish a number of categorical exclusions (CE) from the requirement that an environmental assessment or an environmental impact statement be prepared under section 102 of the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) for FTA-funded actions. The CEs were developed after an extensive effort, and are consistent with Council on Environmental Quality guidance, Executive Order 13571 on "Streamlining Service Delivery and Improving Customer Service," and the Presidential Memorandum on "Speeding Infrastructure Development through More Efficient and Effective Permitting and Environmental Review." They were developed to identify activities that FTA believes do not have a significant effect on the environment. The proposed CEs covers some of the same actions as existing CEs, but would provide a tool that would expedite the delivery of transit projects without compromising environmental quality. The rulemaking would also make targeted revisions to the joint FTA/FHWA NEPA regulation that would only apply to FTA and would serve to support FTA´s focus on streamlining its environmental process.
