SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Before the Federal Government shutdown, the BLM published notices in the Federal Register that informed the public they could obtain copies of various agency documents on BLM Web sites. The notices also contained closing dates for Start Printed Page 67393public comment periods and the submission of protests. Three of the dates originally were set to close during the government shutdown and seven others originally were set to close after the shutdown ended.

The public was unable to access certain documents on the BLM Web site during the government shutdown. Accordingly, the BLM announced new dates through the issuance of a press release for each of the comment periods and protest periods identified in this Federal Register notice. Comment periods and protest periods that were set to conclude during the shutdown have been adjusted by adding the number of days from the beginning of the shutdown to the original due date. These additional days were added to the date of the press release notifying the public of the new dates. Comment periods and protest periods that were originally set to close after the shutdown were adjusted by adding 16 days, the number of the days of the shutdown. In some cases, the BLM is extending comment periods for an additional period of time. Any additional extensions were reflected in the new dates provided in the individual press releases.
