FirstNet publishes this notice of its categorical exclusions (CEs) of actions that FirstNet has determined do not individually or cumulatively have a significant effect on the human environment and, thus, should be categorically excluded from the requirement to prepare an environmental assessment or environmental impact statement under
the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). These categorical exclusions
become effective on April 29, 2014.
A complete set of comments filed in response to the First Responder Network Authority: National Environmental Policy Act Implementing Procedures and Categorical Exclusions published on January 6, 2014, is available at: http://www.ntia.doc.gov/federal-register-notice/2014/comments-notice-firstnet-categorical-exclusions.
