How to get Involved 
Protest Procedure
The 30-day protest period beginning May 29 provides the opportunity for those who participated in the planning process and have an interest that is or could be adversely affected, to protest the Proposed RMP and associated land use planning decisions (see 43 Code of Federal Regulations [CFR] 1610.5-2). Only those persons or organizations who participated in the planning process may protest. The protesting party may only raise issues submitted during the planning process leading up to the publication of this Proposed RMP. These issues may have been raised by the protesting party or others. New issues may not be raised at the protest stage.

Critical elements to be included in a protest are listed in the Protest Regulations (see Documents & Reports) and in the "Dear Reader" letter of the Proposed RMP and Final EIS. Protests must be filed with the BLM State Director in writing.

Regular mail protests should be sent to:
Director (210)
Attn: Protest Coordinator
P.O. Box 71383
Washington, DC, 20024-1383

Overnight mail protests should be sent to:
Director (210)
Attn: Protest Coordinator
20 M Street, SE, Room 2134LM
Washington, DC 20003

Emailed protests will not be accepted as valid protests unless the protesting party also provides the original letter by either regular or overnight mail postmarked by the close of the protest period. Under these conditions, the BLM will consider the emailed protest as an advance copy and it will receive full consideration. If you wish to provide BLM with such advance notification, please direct emailed protests to protest@blm.gov.

All protests must be postmarked on or before the end of the 30-day protest period following EPA publication of the NOA.
