We hope that MMS considers extending its deadline for accepting public comments on a five-year Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) oil and gas leasing program. They should at least push back the deadline until after next Thursday's full committee hearing by the House Natural Resources Committee on the Department of Interior Inspector General's investigation of federal oil and gas royalty collections.
In the meantime, please click here to submit your comment to MMS (the current deadline is Monday, September 15th).

UPDATE: MMS announced that the comment period has been extended to Thursday, September 18th.
