DOT/FRA RIN: 2130-AC66 Publication ID: Fall 2017 
Title: Program for Eliminating Duplication of Environmental Reviews 
Abstract:

This rulemaking would establish a pilot program for eliminating duplication of environmental reviews under section 1309 of the Fixing America's Surface Transportation Act (FAST Act). The FAST Act directs DOT, in consultation with the Council on Environmental Quality, to establish a pilot program to authorize up to five States to conduct environmental reviews and make approvals for projects under State environmental laws and regulations instead of the National Environmental Policy Act. The FAST Act requires the issuance of regulations to implement the requirements of the program, including application requirements and criteria necessary to determine whether State laws and regulations are at least as stringent as the applicable Federal law.
