The Trump administration is planning to roll back NEPA, the National Environmental Policy Act, which was enacted on January 1, 1970 to promote the enhancement of the environment and establish the President’s Council on Environmental Quality. This proposal has led to widespread concern in the environmental and civil rights spaces. Generation Progress guest-hosts Brent J. Cohen and Charlotte Hancock are joined by Kerene Tayloe, the director of federal legislative affairs at WE ACT for Environmental Justice and Sally Hardin, deputy director of the Energy and Environment War Room at the Center for American Progress to take a closer look at the proposed rollback and its potential consequences.
