ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the amendments in the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). A decade has passed since the last comprehensive evaluation of the CEQA. That study traced CEQA's history since the 1972 judicial opinion that broadly applied the law to private and public projects and recommended ways to make its practice fairer and more effective. CEQA was intended to ensure that public decision makers would give every consideration to preventing environmental damage. On the other side, project proponents bemoan the fact that CEQA compliance has become so costly and time-consuming. Three recent amendments appear to be setting the direction for change.
