SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On December 4, 2017, President Trump signed 
Presidential Proclamation 9682 modifying the boundaries of the GSENM as

    The Draft EIS noticed in the Federal Register on August 17, 2018 
(83 FR 41108), includes three alternatives that identify Federal lands 
as available for potential disposal under FLPMA. In accordance with 
direction issued by the Deputy Secretary of the Interior in an August 
17, 2018, Memorandum, the BLM is modifying the Draft RMPs and EIS so 
that the range of alternatives does not identify any lands as available

of corresponding changes to sections included in the Draft RMPs and 
EIS, including the Executive Summary, Chapter 2 (Alternatives), Chapter 
3 (Affected Environment and Environmental Consequences), Appendix A 
(Map 35), Appendix G (Best Management Practices), Appendix H

substantially change the alternatives in the Draft RMPs and EIS or the 
analysis of effects on the human environment, but they do remove the 
identification of Federal lands as available for potential disposal
