New Date for Close of the Protest Period for the Tres Rios Resource Management Plan As a Result of the Federal Government Shutdown (10-22-13)

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) announces the new date for the close of the protest period for the Trest Rios Resource Management Plan.

The original date for the close of the 30-day protest period was Oct. 21, 2013.  Due to the lapse in appropriations and the resulting Federal government shutdown, the documents were not available on the BLM website from October 1 through October 16, 2013.  Accordingly, the new date for the close of the protest period is Nov. 7, 2013.

Public involvement is an essential and required part of the planning process and protests submitted by Nov. 7, 2013 will be considered before the BLM makes a final decision.

The BLM manages more than 245 million acres of public land, the most of any Federal agency. This land, known as the National System of Public Lands, is primarily located in 12 Western states, including Alaska. The BLM also administers 700 million acres of sub-surface mineral estate throughout the nation. The BLM's mission is to manage and conserve the public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations under our mandate of multiple-use and sustained yield. In Fiscal Year 2013, the BLM generated $4.7 billion in receipts from public lands.
