SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The HiLine District draft RMP/EIS was
developed through a collaborative planning process. The HiLine District
RMP decision area encompasses approximately 2.4 million acres of public
land and 3.8 million acres of Federal mineral estate administered by
the BLM HiLine District, which are located in northern Montana in
Glacier, Toole, Liberty, Chouteau, Hill, Blaine, Phillips, and Valley
counties. These lands and minerals are managed by the Havre, Malta,
Glasgow and Great Falls Field Offices. The HiLine RMP decision area
does not include private lands, State lands, tribal reservations,
Federal lands not administered by BLM, or lands addressed in the Upper
Missouri River Breaks National Monument RMP (January 2008).
    Current guidance is provided by the West HiLine (1988) and Sweet
Grass Hills Amendment (1996) and Judith-Valley-Phillips Resource
Management Plans (1994) and land use plan amendments (1996). Oil and
gas leasing in Phillips and Valley counties is currently managed under
four Management Framework Plans (MFP): Phillips MFP, Valley MFP, Little
Rocky Mountains MFP, and the UL Bend/Zortman MFP.
