The NC house is expected to hear a bill that would severely weaken the NC Environmental Policy Act (SEPA) on Wednesday, April 29, 2015.
What is SEPA?
In 1969, the US Congress passed one of the nation’s great environmental laws, NEPA, or the National Environmental Policy Act. In 1971, the North Carolina General Assembly enacted and Gov. Bob Scott signed into law the NC Environmental Policy Act of 1971, known as SEPA. House Bill 795 would severely weaken this fundamental state environmental program, leaving a shell in place.
