I think we really need to understand why the project scope is changing. If it's solely to address planning fiscal constraint requirements and not because of a change in needs for the proposed project, it may not be in the best interest of NEPA to just study the limited footprint in the environmental document. If it is just a fiscal constraint issue, there may be ways to handle this requirement, depending on the project situation, without jeopardizing NEPA compliance.
