Views from the bog-o-sphereWhen streamlining environmental review really means undermining it

By Holly Doremus – Legal Planet – April 2, 2013
The Senate Environment and Public Works Committee has unanimously endorsed S 601, the Water Resources Development Act of 2013. Although it’s nice to see some bipartisanship in the capitol — S 601 is co-sponsored by Committee chair Barbara Boxer (D-CA) and ranking minority member David Vitter (R-LA) — the bill as approved by the Committee would badly undermine environmental review of federally funded water projects under the guise of streamlining. http://legalplanet.wordpress.com/2013/04/02/when-streamlining-environmental-review-really-means-undermining-itntal-review/
