Council on Environmental Quality

Congress first established CEQ within the Executive Office of the President as part of the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969. Additional responsibilities were provided by the Environmental Quality Improvement Act of 1970. The Council is headed by a Chair, Kathleen A. McGinty, who is appointed by the President with the advice and consent of the Senate.

The Council On Environmental Quality (CEQ) has led the Administration's effort to reinvent environment and natural resource programs. In this effort, the Administration is cutting paperwork, saving taxpayers money and developing new partnerships with industry, landowners and the states to provide more flexibility for the regulated community in return for better environmental results.
