    The meeting site is accessible to individuals with disabilities. An 
individual with a disability needing an auxiliary aid or service to 
participate in the meeting, such as an interpreting service, assistive 
listening device, or materials in an alternate format, must notify the 
person listed under FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT two weeks before 
the scheduled meeting date. Although the BLM will attempt to meet a 
request received after that date, the requested auxiliary aid or 
service may not be available because of insufficient time to arrange 
it.
    The Federal Advisory Committee Management Regulations [41 CFR 101-
6.1015(b),] require BLM to publish in the Federal Register notice of a 
meeting 15 days prior to the meeting date.

III. Public Comment Procedures

    On Monday, June 14, 2010, members of the public will have an 
opportunity for participation throughout the day. On Tuesday, June 15, 
2010, the public may make oral statements to the Advisory Board at the 
appropriate point in the agenda. This opportunity is anticipated to 
occur at 3 p.m., local time. Persons wishing to make statements during 
the Tuesday meeting should register with the BLM by noon on June 15, 
2010 at the meeting location. Depending on the number of speakers, the 
Advisory Board may limit the length of presentations. At previous 
meetings, presentations have been limited to three minutes in length, 
however this time may vary. Speakers should address the specific wild 
horse and burro-related topics listed on the agenda. Speakers must 
submit a written copy of their statement to the address listed in the 
ADDRESSES section or bring a written copy to the meeting.
    Participation in the Advisory Board meeting is not a prerequisite 
for submission of written comments. The BLM invites written comments 
from all interested parties. Your written comments should be specific 
and explain the reason for any recommendation. The BLM appreciates any 
and all comments, but those most useful and likely to influence 
decisions on management and protection of wild horses and burros are 
those that are either supported by quantitative information or studies 
or those that include citations to and analysis of applicable laws and 
regulations. Except for comments provided in electronic format, 
speakers should submit two copies of their written comments where 
feasible. The BLM will not necessarily consider comments received after 
the time indicated under the DATES section or at locations other than 
that listed in the ADDRESSES section.
    In the event there is a request under the Freedom of Information 
Act (FOIA) for a copy of your comments, the BLM will make them 
available in their entirety, including your name and address. Before 
including your address, phone number, e-mail address, or other personal 
identifying information in your comment, you should be aware that your 
entire comment--including your personal identifying information--may be 
made publicly available at any time. While you can ask us in your 
comment to withhold your personal identifying information from public 
review, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so. The BLM will 
release all submissions from organizations or businesses, and from 
individuals identifying themselves as representatives or officials of 
organizations or businesses, in their entirety, including names and 
addresses.
