Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 71 / Friday, April 12, 2013 / Notices with the release of the draft EIS. In 2009, Six Rivers National Forest solicited comments on a proposed action for the same allotments (74 FR 18685); however the analysis was not completed. Today’s proposed action was developed in response to changed conditions in the allotments and reflects known conditions through 2012. It is important that reviewers provide their comments at such times and in such manner that they are useful to the Agency’s preparation of the EIS. Therefore, comments should be provided prior to the close of the comment period and should clearly articulate the reviewer’s concerns and contentions regarding the current proposed action. Comments received in response to this solicitation, including names and addresses of those who comment, will be part of the public record for this proposed action. Comments submitted anonymously will be accepted and considered; however, anonymous comments will not provide the Agency with the ability to provide the respondent with subsequent environmental documents.
