Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. Alabama follows the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) when reviewing environmental impact statements (EISs). The state does not have its own specific statutes or regulations for EIS review.

Although Alabama does not specifically require an EIS, the state's permit application process for federally regulated activities in coastal areas includes consideration of the potential environmental impact of any proposed regulated activity.

Administration and enforcement. Each ADEM division administers and enforces the EIS requirements of its specific permit program.

State Requirements
