COMMENTS: Western Governors recommend improvements to BLM, USFS on western corridor review process

Western Governors expressed concern in the letter sent on November 21, 2017 that BLM and USFS are reviewing the corridors without creating efficiencies for future land use planning and National Environmental Policy Act reviews or considering parallel regulatory reform efforts.
