Title: Eagle Permits; Modifications to Regulations Governing Take to Protect Interests in Particular Localities 

The Service is refining its management objectives for bald eagles and golden eagles, and considering revisions to eagle nonpurposeful take permit regulations and eagle nest take regulations. In April 2012, the Service published an advance notice of proposed rulemaking (ANPRM) to solicit preliminary public input on possible revisions to the permit regulations. In 2014, the Service published a notice of intent to prepare an environmental assessment or environmental impact statement and held five public scoping meetings around the United States. Based on comments received on the ANPRM, public input received during the 2014 public scoping process, and internal agency scoping, the Service addressed a variety of topics in this proposed rule, including but not limited to: eagle population objectives; programmatic permit standards and duration; criteria for eagle nest removal permits; compensatory mitigation; refinement of the low-risk permit category; and adaptive management and monitoring.
