"The purpose of this memorandum is to provide information concerning: 1) the changes to 44 CFR Part 10 [the Federal Emergency Management Agency] (FEMA's Environmental Regulations) as published in an interim rule in the Federal Register on Friday, January 7, 1994; and 2) FEMA policy for the implementation of E.O. 12898 which addresses environmental justice. Copies of both are attached. Effective immediately, this interim rule amends 44 CFR 10 by adding certain purchases of properties to the list of actions that FEMA categorically excludes from reviews under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). Likewise implementation of E.O. 12898 is immediately effective."
