FAQs 
 
 
 
Why is the BLM revising their regulations?
    - Congress amended the Federal Land Policy and Management Act in 2014 regarding how the BLM can consider renewing fully processed livestock grazing permits on allotments that are meeting Rangeland Health Standards. Therefore        we need to bring the regulations in line with this statute. We are taking this opportunity to also update and modernize those regulations and to address permitting effeciency, public participation, and how we apply the fundamentals of Land Health.

What are the proposed changes?
    - The BLM does not have any specific proposal at this point. We have just recently completed a public comment period during which we received input from the public regarding specific aspects of the regualtions at 43 CFR 4100 that may be in need of revision. We are in the process of developing a Proposed Rule and Draft EIS which is expected to be published later this summer.

Will there be other opportunities for the public to get involved?
    - Yes! Once the BLM has completed a Draft Environmental Impact Statement and a Proposed Rule, these documents will be released for public review and comment. We expect this to occur in late-August 2020.
