§ 15166. EIR As Part of a General Plan.
(a) The requirements for preparing an EIR on a local general plan, element, or amendment thereof will be satisfied by using the general plan, or element document, as the EIR and no separate EIR will be required, if:
(1) the general plan addresses all the points required to be in an EIR by Article 9 of these guidelines and
(2) the document contains a special section or a cover sheet identifying where the general plan document addresses each of the points required.
(b) Where an EIR rather than a negative declaration has been prepared for a general plan, element, or amendment thereto, the EIR shall be forwarded to the State Clearinghouse for review. The requirement shall apply regardless of whether the EIR is prepared as a separate document or as a part of the general plan or element document.
