The purpose of the information and educational meetings was to involve affected and interested parties in the administration of the Indian Reservation Roads Program. There has been a series of 12 information and education meetings throughout the country where public participation, in the form of questions and requests for clarification of the proposed rulemaking, was encouraged. Because of the overwhelming public response to the proposed rulemaking, the BIA believes it prudent to extend the comment period to November 7, 2002. This extension will facilitate the maximum direct participation of all interested parties in this important bureau process.Start Signature
