Abstract:

On October 2, 1981, the President announced his decision to complete production of the M-X missile, but cancelled the M-X Multiple Protective Shelter MPS basing system. The Air Force was, at the time of these decisions, working to prepare a Final Environmental Impact Statement FEIS for the MPS site selection process. These efforts have been terminated and the Air Force no longer intends to file a FEIS for the MPS system. However, the attached preliminary FEIS captures the environmental data and analysis in the document that was nearing completion when the President decided to deploy the system in a different manner. The preliminary FEIS and associated technical reports represent an intensive effort at resource planning and development that may be of significant value to state and local agencies. This document presents an economic analysis of the rangelands, areas used primarily for the production of livestock and wildlife forage. Originator-supplied key words include MX missiles, Federal land, Nevada, Utah, Texas, New Mexico.
