The comment period for what I call the Mature and Old Growth Advanced Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (the MOG ANPR) has been extended to July 20th. A nice gentleman at the Forest Service told me that it’s really called the ANPR on “climate-informed forestry” which would be different from the actual title at the Federal Register (Forest Service Functions). Anyway, it could be confusing if you just look at the main page which shows the old date and the number of days is wrong (see second screenshot above). This seems needlessly confusing IMHO.

As a non-paid person who often is asked to write or help with letters, I like to browse other people’s comments and see if they have interesting ideas. It would be handy if there were a search box that would not bring up form letters, or perhaps if you could set it to only include letters from organizations. Maybe more experienced people know if there’s a search possibility to do that?
Anyway, if you or your organization has submitted comments on either rule you would like to share, please link below.
