The notice of availability and additional supplementary information for the Draft Land Use Planning Manual and Handbook were published in the Federal Register on May 30, 2000 (65 FR 34495), with a comment period expiring July 10, 2000. The BLM has received requests from the public to extend the comment period on the draft planning guidance. We recognize the value of public input on the draft guidance and therefore are extending the comment period for 30 days. We are limiting the extension to 30 days because of our desire to fully consider all comments and finalize the manual and handbook so that they can be used to guide the development of numerous planning efforts scheduled to begin October 1, 2000, the beginning of Fiscal Year 2001.
