As a follow-up to the National Association of Environmental Professionals February 2015 webinar on programmatic environmental impact statements (EIS), the March 25, 2015, webinar will focus on consultation under Section 7 of the Federal Endangered Species Act (ESA) during preparation of a programmatic environmental document under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). The Council on Environmental Quality Final Guidance for Effective Use of Programmatic NEPA Reviews (December 2014) specifically recognizes that the purpose and need statement and the proposed action for the programmatic NEPA review are critical for determining compliance requirements under other applicable laws and regulations, such as ESA. Language was added to the final guidance to emphasize that an agency should consider the appropriate level of compliance with other laws for a programmatic NEPA review, for example, by considering programmatic agreements under the ESA and the potential for a separate, more focused and specific consultation, for any subsequent tiered NEPA document.
