The Arizona Center for Law in the Public Interest Slices and Dices the F-35A DEIS

The Arizona Center for Law in the Public Interest Slices and Dices the F-35A DEIS

Under NEPA law the US Air Force is required to issue a draft environmental impact statement (DEIS) to the public in cities where it wants to base squadrons of jets. Citizens attend public hearings and share their comments on the study back with the Air Force in advance of the final impact statement. Citing incomplete data, flawed data and misleading data in the DEIS, the Arizona Center for Law in the Public Interest (ACLPI) gives the 1180-page report a failing grade and recommends the study be rejected until it has been properly completed. While several comments apply specifically to the Air Force's plan to base 72 F-35As at the Tuscon International Airport, the majority of criticisms about the study apply to all four sites under consideration.
