SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The original Notice of Availability was published September 29, 2006, and provided for comments on the Bay Draft RMP/EIS to be received through January 5, 2007. Due to unforeseen circumstances, one of the key villages within the Bay planning area asked the BLM to reschedule an open house meeting/subsistence hearing to January 2007. To honor this request and other separate requests for a comment extension, the BLM has decided to extend the comment period by 31 days. Therefore, comments on the Bay Draft RMP/EIS will now be accepted through February 5, 2007.
