The BLM announced yesterday that an online meeting regarding the use of motorized equipment has been set for April 26.
Statements will be taken during the meeting but require advance registration.
Written comments can be submitted by email.
A requirement for public hearings appears in §1338a of the statute but Western Horse Watchers was unable to find a provision for meeting frequency.
The use of motorized equipment was authorized in 1976 by FLPMA, the first of several amendments to the WHB Act.
Helicopters are the fastest way of shifting resources back to the public-lands ranchers.
The Montana Solution can achieve the same results but over a much longer timeframe.
