On Wednesday, January 29, the 90-day comment period for the Idaho Greater Sage-Grouse Draft Land Use Plan Amendment and Environmental Impact Statement closed. The Forest Service and the Bureau of Land Management will be analyzing the substantive comments received, revising the draft environmental impact statement, and publishing a final environmental impact statement, which will include a Response to Comment report. A Notice of Availability for the Proposed Land Use Plan Amendment and Environmental Impact Statement is expected to be published in the Federal Register in the fall of 2014.
We appreciate your participation, which will help both agencies accomplish what they are proposing.
