Comparison: State vs. Federal
• Rules. Ohio does not have a state statute similar to the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) that requires an environmental impact statement (EIS) for state actions that may have a significant impact on the environment. See the national section ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT STATEMENT for more information about the federal requirements.
• Administration and enforcement. CEQ, EPA, or other appropriate federal agencies administer and enforce NEPA requirements.
