Description Ecology is requesting state lawmakers to restore the exemption in the SEPA law for minor construction projects while maintaining the existing requirements for proposed construction in environmentally sensitive areas. If lawmakers reinstate the exemption, Ecology estimates that local governments can reduce their SEPA review workload by about 500 reviews a year. This will reduce the time and money local governments and applicants spend on reviews that are not necessary.
