The purpose of the public scoping process is to determine relevant
issues relating to the conservation of the greater sage-grouse and its
habitat that will influence the scope of the environmental analysis,
including alternatives, and guide the process for developing the EISs/
Supplemental EISs.
    At present, the BLM has identified the following preliminary
issues:

 Greater Sage-grouse Habitat Management
 Fluid Minerals
 Coal Mining
 Hard Rock Mining
 Mineral Materials
 Rights-of-Way (including transmission)
 Renewable Energy Development
 Fire
 Invasive Species
 Grazing
Off Highway Vehicle Management and Recreation
