While you can ask us in your comment to withhold your personal identifying information from public review, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so.

Issues to be resolved through policy or administrative action; or 3. Issues beyond the scope of this RMP amendment. The BLM will provide an explanation in the Draft RMP amendment/ preliminary EA as to why an issue was placed in category two or three. The BLM also encourages the public to help PO 00000 Frm 00051 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 62563 identify any management questions and concerns that should be addressed in the plan. The BLM will work collaboratively with interested parties to identify the management decisions that are best suited to local, regional, and national needs and concerns.

Specialists with expertise in the following disciplines will be involved in the planning process: Rangeland management, vegetation, riparian and wetlands, invasive and noxious weeds, minerals and geology, forestry, outdoor recreation, visual resource management, cultural resources and Native American concerns, paleontology, wildlife and fisheries, threatened and endangered species, lands and realty, hydrology, soils, wild horses, fire ecology and management, sociology and economics, public safety, law enforcement, and geographic information systems.

SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00052 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Section 7 of the Taylor Grazing Act of June 8, 1934, clarified by the Supreme Court in Andrus v.

The final acres conveyed will be determined after further environmental analysis is completed, will be based on a dollar value, and may be less than the aggregate acreage described in this notice. All persons who wish to submit comments on a motion of any protestant with this initial classification may present their views by any means shown under the ADDRESSES section above. The BLM Colorado State Director will evaluate any adverse comment and issue a notice of determination to proceed with, modify, or cancel the proposed action. In the absence of any action by the BLM State Director, this initial classification action will become the final determination of the Department of the Interior. The BLM will review any comments and may sustain, vacate, or modify this realty action. In the absence of any adverse comments, the classification of the land described in this notice will become effective on December 15, 2015. Before including your address, phone number, email address, or other personal identifying information in your comment, you should be aware that your entire comment—including your personal identifying information—may be made publicly available at any time.
