During the nine years since implementation of the 1995 grazing reforms, a number of discrete concerns have been raised regarding the administration of grazing management. Among other things, the rulemaking addresses a variety of these discrete, administrative issues related to the current regulatory scheme without altering the fundamental structure of the grazing regulations.
The BLM published the proposed rule on December 8, 2003 (68 FR 68452), inviting public comments until February 6, 2004. On January 2, 2004, the BLM issued the Draft EIS for a 60-day public comment period which was extended on January 16, 2004 to March 2, 2004 (69 FR 2559). The Final Environmental Impact Statement was issued December 2004.Start Signature
