Environmental Impact Statements (EISs) and Approved Plan Amendments 

The 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 sagebrush habitat conservation plans adopted in 2015.  A Draft EIS and Plan Amendments for BLM-managed public lands in Idaho 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 state’s 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 Amendments.  The ROD addresses issues raised in Protests of the proposed amendments, as well as points included in the Idaho Governor’s Consistency Review.
