COLORADO-BLM Seeks Comments on Proposed Supplementary Rules for the Gunnison Basin Travel Management Plan Area

Dear BRC Action Alert Subscriber,

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Colorado is proposing supplementary rules for public lands included in the Gunnison Basin Federal Lands Travel Management Plan (TMP), approved on June 28, 2010. These proposed supplementary rules would apply to public lands administered by the BLM, Gunnison Field Office in Gunnison, Montrose, Hinsdale, and Saguache counties, Colorado. The proposed rules would implement decisions found in the TMP relating to the use of motorized and non-motorized vehicles.

Written comments on the proposed supplementary rules should be specific, be confined to issues pertinent to the proposed supplementary rules, and explain the reason for any recommended change. Where possible, comments should reference the specific section or paragraph of the proposed supplementary rules that the comment is addressing. A copy of the Federal Register Notice showing all Proposed Supplementary Rules is available online at http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/FR-2013-05-08/pdf/2013-10896.pdf
