Record of Decision (ROD) and Approved Resource Management Plan Amendment 

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the Department of the Interior (DOI) worked closely with governors of states with Greater Sage-Grouse habitat to determine whether to amend some, all, or none of the of the sagebrush habitat conservation plans adopted in 2015.  A Draft EIS and Plan Amendment for BLM-managed public lands in Nevada and Northeastern California was published on May 4, 2018, initiating a 90-day public comment period that ended on August 2, 2018.  The Management Alignment alternative in the Draft EIS was proposed to enhance cooperation and improve alignment between BLM plans for conserving sage-grouse habitat and the states' plans for managing the sage-grouse species.  

The BLM considered the comments received on the Draft EIS and developed a Final EIS and Proposed Plan Amendment.  The ROD addresses issues raised in Protests of the proposed amendment, as well as points included in the Nevada and California Governors' Consistency Reviews.
