The public is encouraged to help identify any issues, management questions, or concerns that should be addressed in the plan amendment(s). The BLM would also like to receive input on whether the planning effort should occur through state-by-state amendment processes and decisions. The BLM will work collaboratively with interested parties to identify the management decisions that are best suited to local, regional, and national needs and concerns. Further, the BLM looks forward to receiving the comments of the Governors of each state, and will strive to accommodate those comments to the extent practicable given prior collaborative efforts.
