Tulsa, Okla.--The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Oklahoma Field Office is seeking public comments to identify issues and concerns that should be analyzed in the Oklahoma Field Office Resource Management Plan (RMP) and Environmental Impact Statement (EIS). A Notice of Intent to prepare the RMP and conduct an EIS was published in the Federal Register on July 26, 2013, formally opening a 190-day public scoping period which will end January 31, 2014.

Seventeen public scoping meetings will be held across Oklahoma, Kansas, and Texas. The BLM will announce meeting dates and locations in local newspapers at least 15 days prior to each meeting. Meeting details are also available in the project newsletter and on the project website: http://www.blm.gov/nm/oktrmp.

Comments are welcomed, reviewed, and considered throughout the planning process. Comments may be submitted by e-mail to BLM_NM_OKT_RMP@blm.gov. Alternatively, comments can be made by printing and filling out the mail-in (or fax-in) comment form, available from the project website. Comment forms may be delivered to the BLM at 7906 East 33rd Street, Ste 101, Tulsa, OK 74145, Attn: Laurence Levesque; or faxed to (918) 621-4130, Attn: Laurence Levesque.

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.
