Onshore Oil and Gas: BLM's Management of Public Protests to Its Lease Sales Needs Improvement

This Government Accountability Office Report (GAO-10-670) dated July 30,2010 finds that while BLM has taken steps to collect agencywide protest data, the data it maintains and makes publicly available are limited.
