Forest Service National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) procedures exclude from documentation in an environmental assessment or impact statement ‘‘rules, regulations, or policies to establish servicewide administrative procedures, program processes, or instructions.’’ 36 CFR 220.6(d)(2). The Agency’s conclusion is that these proposed directives fall within this category of actions and that no extraordinary circumstances exist as currently defined that require preparation of an environmental assessment or an environmental impact statement. The Forest Service has also determined that the changes to the manual formulate standards, criterion, or guidelines applicable to a Forest Service program and are therefore publishing the proposed manual for public comment in accordance with 36 CFR part 216. The Forest Service is seeking public comment on the proposed directives, including the sufficiency of the proposed directives in meeting its stated objectives, ways to enhance the utility and clarity of information within the direction, or ways to streamline processes outlined. After the public comment period closes, the Forest Service will consider timely comments that are within the scope of the proposed directives in the development of the final directives. A notice of the final directive, including a response to timely comments, will be posted on the Forest Service’s web page at https://www.fs.usda.gov/aboutagency/regulations-policies.
