Officials delay Mariana Islands Range Complex comment deadline

By STARS AND STRIPES Published: March 21, 2009

Government officials have extended to March 31 the period for written comments regarding the environmental impact of proposed changes at Mariana Islands Range Complex.

The military wants to allow more large-scale military exercises on land, air and sea in the range, which covers more than half a million square miles in the Pacific. Already, the military has held public hearings on Guam and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands.

To comment, write to Mariana Islands Range Complex EIS; 258 Makalapa Drive, Suite 100; Attn: EV2; Pearl Harbor, HI 96860-3134; or e-mail marianas.tap.eis@navy.mil.
