Attached is a letter from CRE to the Bureau of Land Management discussing the agency’s compliance with BLM, DOI and OMB open government/transparency guidelines.
I am writing to bring to your attention a violation of the Open Government and Transparency Initiative championed by the White House and implemented by the agencies through guidance from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB). Specifically, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is refusing to release to the public the public’s own comments on the agency’s draft Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement (PEIS) for Oil Shale. BLM requested public comments on the draft document in a Federal Register notice on February 6, 2012.
