The U.S. is rebalancing military forces in the Asia-Pacific region. In support of this, the U.S. military is proposing to increase joint military training capabilities on the island of Tinian. The U.S. Marine Corps is leading this joint service initiative on behalf of the U.S. Pacific Command.

National Environmental Policy Act

The Marine Corps will analyze the environmental impacts of the new proposal under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). NEPA is a procedural law that requires federal agencies to assess the potential for environmental impacts of proposed activities and provides the public with an opportunity to review and comment on the agency proposal. Comments will be accepted during the Revised Draft EIS public review and comment period in the fall of 2024.
