The supplement, expected in early 2013, will include additional environmental analysis of Greater Sage-Grouse related topics. The supplement will be available for a 90-day public comment period, during which time public meetings will be held to provide opportunities for interested individuals to ask questions and provide input on the supplement. After addressing public comments received during the comment period, the BLM will continue to develop a Proposed RMP and Final EIS.
Once finalized, the plan will provide future direction in all aspects of public land and mineral management on approximately 3.2 million surface acres and 4.2 million acres of mineral estate in northwest Wyoming.
