April’s unofficial totals for approvals actions were discussed in a previous blog post here, and we mentioned that April showers might bring May flowers.  Well, the bloom of approvals so far in May might rival the bloom of flowers that we’re seeing in the California deserts this year!

The approval actions posted through May 16th are forty-one full approvals and four tentative approvals.  If the rate of approvals comes close to what we have already seen in the first half of the month, we are likely to have the first month with over eighty approval actions this fiscal year.  Our unofficial prediction for April was seventy-nine for both full and tentative approval actions.  We anticipate that the April/May figures taken together will provide a brighter outlook for FY 2024.  Good job, OGD!  Keep up the good work!
