Review Process The review process is composed of four primary stages: 1. Information collection and characterization, including public scoping meetings. 2. Preparation and release of a draft environmental impact statement (DEIS) as required by Section 304(a) of the NMSA that identifies boundary expansion alternatives, as well as a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to amend the sanctuary regulations to reflect any new boundary if proposed. 3. Public review and comment on the DEIS and NPRM; and 4. Preparation and release of a final environmental impact statement, including a response to public comments, with a final rule if appropriate. NOAA anticipates that the completion of the final environmental impact statement and concomitant documents will require approximately twelve months. At this time, NOAA is opening a public comment period to: 1. Gather information and public comments from individuals, organizations, and government agencies on whether MBNMS should expand its boundary and the potential effects of a boundary expansion; 2. Help determine the scope of issues to be addressed in the preparation of an environmental impact statement (EIS) pursuant to the NEPA, if warranted; and 3. Conduct a series of public scoping meetings to collect public comment. The public scoping meeting schedule is presented below.
