Update to the State Environmental Quality Review Act
The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation adopted revisions to the regulations that implement the State Environmental Quality Review Act (SEQR) to streamline the SEQR process without sacrificing meaningful environmental review. Among other changes, DEC has adopted amendments to the Type I and Type II lists of actions, as well as the scoping and acceptance procedures for draft environmental impact statements. DEC has also modernized the regulations related to web publication of documents. These changes are the first major amendments to the SEQR regulations that DEC made since 1996. On June 27, 2018, DEC issued a Findings Statement and formally adopted the rule, which will become effective on January 1, 2019. Come listen and see!
