    SUMMARY: This notice announces a reopening of the public comment period on the proposed categorical exclusionunder the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. The proposed categorical exclusion pertains to adding species to the injurious wildlife list under the Lacey Act. The addition of this categorical exclusion to the Department of the Interior’s Departmental Manual will improve conservation activities by making the NEPA process for listing injurious species more efficient.DATES: We will consider comments we receive on or before February 21, 2014.

    Thanks for the heads up rich! I wonder if there is any particular reason the public comment period was extended?

    USARK's website has a very well worded comment you can copy/paste and send off.

    Please take the time to send a comment! Categorical exclusion would be a VERY VERY bad thing for all of us reptile keepers, its vitally important to our hobby that we do everything we can to keep this from happening
