The Army is no longer pursuing the TLEP. The requirement for land acquisition for heavy maneuver training has been mitigated. The formal withdrawal notice was published on in the Federal Register on June 7, 2016. The notice withdraws a key environmental study for the TLEP, the Draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS). Because the EIS is a prerequisite of actual land acquisition (per the National Environmental Policy Act), withdrawing it means that TLEP is not going forward.
