NEW ORLEANS (AP) — The federal government will hold five public meetings around the Gulf Coast to get comments about air quality modeling and analysis for proposed region-wide oil lease sales next year.

         The Bureau of Ocean Energy management says the modeling results have not yet been reviewed.

         Comments may also be mailed to the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management or sent through the web portal, under Docket No. BOEM-2017-0001.

         The 45-day comment period ends May 15.
