One of the four witnesses was Dinah Bear, a former CEQ General Counsel who has spoken at NAEP annual conferences. As is frequently the case for such hearings, both the committee members and the witnesses presented a range of opinions on the effectiveness of NEPA and potential changes to the act and its implementing regulations. The NAEP NEPA practice encourages NAEP members and affiliates, particularly those involved with NEPA, to watch the video of this hearing.
