-STATUTE-

(a) Policy. - It is the policy of the United States that projects

selected under this chapter shall provide for the protection and

enhancement of the natural resources and the quality of the

environment of the United States. In carrying out this policy, the

Secretary of Transportation shall consult with the Secretary of the

Interior and the Administrator of the Environmental Protection

Agency about a project that may have a significant effect on

natural resources, including fish and wildlife, natural, scenic,

and recreational assets, water and air quality, and other factors

affecting the environment. If the Secretary of Transportation finds

that a project will have a significant adverse effect, the

Secretary may approve the application for the project only if,

after a complete review that is a matter of public record, the

Secretary makes a written finding that no feasible and prudent

alternative to the project exists and that all reasonable steps

have been taken to minimize the adverse effect.

(b) Public Hearing Requirement. - The Secretary of Transportation

may approve an application only if the sponsor of the project

certifies to the Secretary that an opportunity for a public hearing

has been provided to consider the economic, social, and

environmental effects of the project and its consistency with the

goals of any planning carried out by the community. When a hearing

is held under this paragraph, the sponsor shall submit a copy of

the transcript of the hearing to the Secretary.

(c) Compliance With Air and Water Quality Standards. - (1) The

Secretary of Transportation may approve an application only if the

chief executive officer of the State in which the project is

located certifies in writing to the Secretary that there is

reasonable assurance that the project will be located, designed,

constructed, and operated to comply with applicable air and water

quality standards. If the Administrator has not prescribed those

standards, certification shall be obtained from the Administrator.

Notice of certification or refusal to certify shall be provided not

later than 60 days after the Secretary receives the application.

(2) The Secretary of Transportation shall condition the approval

of an application on compliance with applicable air and water

quality standards during construction and operation.

(d) Compliance With Laws and Regulations. - The Secretary of

Transportation may require a certification from a sponsor that the

sponsor will comply with all applicable laws and regulations. The

Secretary may rescind at any time acceptance of a certification

from a sponsor under this subsection. This subsection does not

affect any responsibility of the Secretary under another law,
