Goal: NEPA was created to ensure federal agencies consider the environmental impacts of their actions and decisions.
Function: to use all practicable means and measures to protect environmental values.
Didn't have a set "Environmental Issues Affected", but it's most significant effect was setting up procedural requirements for all federal government agencies to prepare environmental assessments (EAs) and environmental impact statements (EISs).
When a defendant agent violates NEPA's regulations, its actions are temporarily forced to stop until they comply with the responsibilities and guidelines provided by NEPA.
Responsible for enforcement: the Council of Environmental Policy
NEPA has been called the modern-day equivalent of an “environmental Magna Carta”.
