This chapter establishes the responsibility of the state to preserve and enhance the environment. State agencies are required to consider environmental science and impacts in any planning and/or decision making that may have an impact on the environment. Proposals for legislation or other major state actions must include an environmental impact statement and possible alternatives to the proposed action.
