all lands, regardless of jurisdiction, totaling approximately 6.6
million acres; however, the BLM will only make decisions on lands that
fall under the BLM's jurisdiction. BLM-administered surface, totaling
approximately 2.4 million acres, and Federal mineral estate, totaling
2.8 million acres, make up the decision area. The revised RMP will
replace the 1987 Lander RMP. The Draft RMP/EIS includes a series of
management actions, within four management alternatives, designed to

include, but are not limited to, mineral development, livestock
grazing, air quality, special management areas including areas of
critical environmental concern (ACEC), wildlife habitats including that
