Don't take away our safeguards

BLM Categorical Exclusions Content Analysis Team Post Office Box 22777 Salt Lake City, UT 84122-0777 Subject: Don't adopt proposed categorical exclusions on public lands I am writing to express my strong opposition to the proposed policy change that would exempt many destructive activities on BLM lands from environmental analysis and public review. In addition, I request that you extend the comment period, as 30 days for such a significant proposal is insufficient. Consider the funds that were supposed to be given to our national parks for national recreation from off-shore drilling right fees. They have been raided over and over by the Congress and now represent a "deficit" that will never be recovered. This the public now knows, and should never be excluded from future government decisions over public lands. Because The Earth Needs A Good Lawyer - Earthjustice
