Federal Coal Program: Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement-Scoping Report

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has undertaken scoping as part of its comprehensive review of the Federal coal program and has prepared this scoping report consistent with National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) requirements at Title 40 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), Subpart 1501.7.
