BRC: NATIONAL - DOI Announces Formal Public Comment Period for Antiquities Act Monuments

Releases List of Monuments Under Review

 

Dear BRC Action Alert Subscriber,

 

The Department of the Interior has announced the first ever formal public comment period for members of the public to officially weigh in on monument designations under the Antiquities Act of 1906, and the Department released a list of monuments under review under the President's Executive Order 13792, issued April 26, 2017. A public comment period is not required for monument designations under the Antiquities Act; however, Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke and President Trump both strongly believe that local input is a critical component of federal land management.

 

Comments may be submitted online after May 12 at http://www.regulations.gov by entering "DOI-2017-0002" in the Search bar and clicking "Search," or by mail to Monument Review, MS-1530, U.S. Department of the Interior, 1849 C Street NW, Washington, DC 20240.

 

The Department published a notice in the Federal Register officially opening the public comment period on May 11, 2017. Written comments relating to the Bears Ears National Monument must be submitted within 15 days of publication of that notice. Written comments relating to all other designations subject to Executive Order 13792 must be submitted within 60 days of that date.

 

For a complete list of National Monuments being reviewed and to read the Department of the Interior press release go here. To read the Federal Register Notice go here.

 

Thanks in advance and, as always, if you have any questions or concerns, please contact BRC.
