A story posted this morning by KFYR News indicates that a North Dakota State Representative helped concerned citizens draft a letter to the acting Park Superintendent requesting another 60 days for public comments.

The extension would give the legislature enough time to decide if they would intervene in the planning process.
The report did not indicate if the letter had been submitted.

October 21, 1976 FLPMA extended provisions of the Wilderness Act of 1964 to public lands, since they had not been originally included. The BLM now manages nine wilderness areas and 88 wilderness study areas in Oregon and Washington. Contributing even more acronyms to our repertoire, FLPMA also created ACECs (Areas of Critical Environmental Concern) “where special management attention is required . . . to protect and prevent irreparable damage to important historic, cultural, or scenic values, fish and wildlife resources
