SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION
:
Background
On October 27, 2021, the Service
published a proposed rule (86 FR
59346) to rescind the final rule
establishing regulations for exclusions
from critical habitat that was published
on December 18, 2020 (85 FR 82376),
and became effective January 19, 2021.
The proposed rule opened a 30-day
public comment period that was
scheduled to close on November 26,
2021. We subsequently received two
requests to extend the public comment
period. One request was submitted by
the Association of Fish and Wildlife
Agencies (AFWA), which sought an
extension in order to coordinate and
incorporate feedback from all its
members into its comment. AFWA is a
national organization representing State
agencies in all 50 States, and the Service
finds their request shows good cause to
extend the comment period. With this
document, we extend the public
comment period for an additional 15
days, as specified above in
DATES
, to
provide all interested parties an
additional opportunity to comment on
the October 27, 2021, proposed rule.
Public Comments
All relevant information will be
considered prior to making a final
determination regarding the regulations
for exclusions from critical habitat. If
you already submitted comments or
information on the October 27, 2021,
proposed rule, please do not resubmit
them. Any such comments are
incorporated as part of the public record
of the rulemaking proceeding, and we
will fully consider them in the
preparation of any final rule.
You may submit your comments and
materials concerning the proposed rule
by one of the methods listed in
ADDRESSES
. Comments must be
submitted to https://
www.regulations.gov before 11:59 p.m.
(Eastern Time) on the date specified in
DATES
. We will not consider mailed
comments that are not postmarked by
the date specified in
DATES
.
We will post all comments on https://
www.regulations.gov. This generally
means that we will post any personal
information you provide us. If you
provide personal identifying
information in your comment, you may
request at the top of your document that
we withhold this information from
public review. However, we cannot
guarantee that we will be able to do so.
Authority
We issue this document under the
authority of the Endangered Species
Act, as amended (16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq).
