Washington State Environmental Policy Act: A Legal and Policy Analysis is a complete guide to the requirements of the State Environmental Policy Act of Washington (SEPA). It provides a clear and rational discussion of the present laws and regulations as well as an understanding of the SEPA caselaw. The author leads you through the key concepts of SEPA, including "actions," and "threshold determinations" in clear, concise language. This guide discusses the basic requirements for constructing an environmental impact statement (EIS) including the scoping process, the draft and final environmental document, the use of environmental documents, and ultimately the "rule of reason" test by which courts measure legal adequacy.
