The California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) is a California law (California Public Resources Code section 21000 et seq.) passed in 1970, shortly after the federal government passed the National Environmental Policy Act. CEQA does not directly regulate land uses, but instead requires development projects submit documentation of their potential environmental impact.
