USDA/FS RIN: 0596-AC94 Publication ID: Fall 2010 
Title: National Forest System Land Management Planning 
Abstract: The Forest Service is proposing to provide notice and comment on a new planning rule. In so doing, the Forest Service plans to correct deficiencies that have been identified over two decades of forest planning and update planning procedures to reflect contemporary collaborative planning practices. The goal is to develop a new rule that improves the planning process, decisionmaking, and the legal defensibility of land management plans by November 2011. The Forest Service is required to issue regulation for National Forest System land management planning under 16 U.S.C. 1604. The first planning rule was adopted in 1979 and amended in 1982. The Forest Service published a new planning rule on April 21, 2008 (73 FR 21468). On June 30, 2009, the United States District Court for the Northern District of California invalidated the Forest Service’s 2008 Planning Rule published at 36 CFR 219 based on violations of NEPA and ESA in the rulemaking process. The District Court vacated the 2008 Rule, enjoined the USDA from further implementing it, and remanded it to the USDA for further proceedings. The Department has determined that the 2000 planning rule is now in effect, including its transition provisions as amended in 2002 and 2003 and as clarified by interpretative rules issued in 2001 and 2004, which allows the use the provisions of the 1982 planning rule to amend or revise plans. The Agency is now in the 2000 planning rule transition period.
