The National Environmental Policy Act NEPA requires that comments of federal, state and local agencies, which are authorized to develop and enforce environmental standards, be included in an environmental impact statement EIS. Guidelines and regulations, promulgated by the Council on Environmental Quality CEQ for implementation of NEPA, have expanded this requirement so that an agency must prepare a draft EIS DEIS and make it available for comment by not only the agencies listed in NEPA, but also Native American Tribes and any persons who may be interested or affected. An affirmative duty is imposed by the CEQ regulations to assess and consider comments both individually and collectively, and to respond to such comments in the FEIS. Substantive comments or summaries thereof are attached to the FEIS. Some Public Comments and Responses are on Agriculture, Air Quality, Aquatic Species, Archaeology and Paleontology, Basing Mode Alternatives, Construction Resources, Cost Analysis, Earnings and Procurement, Education, Energy, Engineering, Geology, Mining, and Minerals, Health, Legal topics, Oppose M-X Program, Quality of Life, Solid Waste Management, Wetlands, Wilderness and Natural Areas, and Wildlife.
