Q: What is a Resource Management Plan (RMP)?

A: An RMP is a set of comprehensive, long-range decisions regarding the use and management of resources administered by BLM. In general, an RMP accomplishes two objectives -

- Provides an overview of goals, objectives, and needs associated with public land management; and

- Establishes what land uses can occur on the public lands, where they can occur, and under what conditions. 

Q: What laws, regulations and policies guide the revision process?

A:The BLM land use, or resource management planning process, explained in 43 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) 1600, BLM 1601 Manual, and BLM Land Use Planning Handbook (H-1601-1), falls within the framework of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) environmental analysis and decision making process described in the Council of Environmental Quality regulations of 40 CFR 1500-1508, the Department of the Interior NEPA Manual (516 DM 17) and BLM NEPA Handbook H-1790-1.
