Comparison: State vs. Federal

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.
