SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Cordero Mining Company (CMC) initially filed an application to lease the Federal coal on the Maysdorf Tract adjacent to the Cordero Rojo Mine on September 20, 2001. The Powder River Regional Coal VerDate jul<14>2003 15:06 Jan 31, 2005 Jkt 205001 Team reviewed this lease application at a public meeting held on May 30, 2002, in Casper, Wyoming, and recommended that BLM process it. CMC filed applications to modify the tract on May 22, 2002; April 30, 2004; and November 9, 2004. As currently filed, the application includes approximately 230.3 million tons of inplace Federal coal underlying the following lands in Campbell County, Wyoming: T. 46 N., R. 71 W., 6th P.M., Wyoming Section 4: Lots 5, 6, 7 (E1⁄2 E1⁄2), 10 (E1⁄2 E1⁄2), 11, 12; Section 10: Lots 1, 2, 3 (N1⁄2, N1⁄2 S1⁄2), 4 (N1⁄2, N1⁄2 S1⁄2), 5 (N1⁄2, N1⁄2 S1⁄2), 6 (N1⁄2, N1⁄2 S1⁄2); Section 11: Lots 1 through 8, 9 (N1⁄2, N1⁄2 S1⁄2), 10 (N1⁄2, N1⁄2 S1⁄2), 11 (N1⁄2, N1⁄2 S1⁄2), 12 (N1⁄2, N1⁄2 S1⁄2); T. 47 N., R. 71 W, 6th P.M., Wyoming Section 8: Lots 3 through 6, 11 through 13; Section 21: Lots 1, 2, 3 (E1⁄2 E1⁄2), 6 (E1⁄2 E1⁄2), 7 through 10, 11 (E1⁄2 E1⁄2), 14 (E1⁄2 E1⁄2), 15, 16; Section 28: Lots 1, 2, 3 (E1⁄2 E1⁄2), 6 (E1⁄2 E1⁄2), 7 through 10, 11 (E1⁄2 E1⁄2), 14 (E1⁄2 E1⁄2), 15, 16; Section 33: Lots 1, 2, 3 (E1⁄2 E1⁄2), 6 (E1⁄2 E1⁄2), 7 through 10, 11 (E1⁄2 E1⁄2), 14 (E1⁄2 E1⁄2), 15, 16. Containing 2,219.39 acres more or less. The surface estate of Lots 3, 4, 5, of Section 10, and Lot 4 of Section 11, T. 46 N., R. 71 W., containing 132.13 acres, more or less, is owned by the Federal government and administered by the BLM. The remainder of the surface estate is privately owned. CMC proposes to mine the tract as a part of the Cordero Rojo Mine. At the 2003 mining rate of 36 million tons per year, the coal included in the Maysdorf Tract would extend the life of the Cordero Rojo Mine six to seven years. In accordance with 43 CFR 3425.1–9, BLM will evaluate the tract’s proximity to all mining operations and may decide to add or subtract Federal coal lands to avoid bypassing coal or to increase potential competitive interest in the tract. The Cordero Rojo Mine is operating under approved mining permits from the Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality, Land Quality and Air Quality Divisions. The Office of Surface Mining Reclamation and Enforcement (OSM) will be a cooperating agency in the preparation of the EIS. If the Maysdorf Tract is leased to the applicant, the new lease must be incorporated into the existing mining and reclamation plan for the adjacent mine and the Secretary of the Interior must approve the revision to the Mineral Leasing Act (MLA) mining plan before the Federal coal in the tract can be mined. OSM is the PO 00000 Frm 00091 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 5219 Federal agency that would be responsible for recommending approval, approval with conditions, or disapproval of the revised MLA mining plan to the office of the Secretary of the Interior if this tract is leased. The BLM will provide interested parties the opportunity to submit comments or relevant information or both. This information will help BLM identify issues to be considered in preparing a draft EIS and in evaluating the FMV and MER of the Federal coal included in the Maysdorf Tract. Issues that have been raised during processing previous EISs in the Wyoming PRB include: the need for resolution of conflicts between existing and proposed oil and gas development including coal bed natural gas (CBNG) and coal mining on the tract proposed for leasing; potential impacts to big game herds and hunting; potential impacts to sage grouse; potential impacts to listed threatened and endangered species; potential health impacts related to blasting; the need to consider the cumulative impacts of coal leasing decisions combined with other existing and proposed development in the Wyoming PRB; and potential site specific and cumulative impacts on air and water quality. The BLM open house that precedes the scoping meeting will provide information about the PRB Coal Review, a regional technical study being prepared to update the BLM’s current status of coal development in the PRB, and to forecast coal and related industrial development. Based on these two review documents, a cumulative impact analysis will be developed for use in future EISs, including the EIS that BLM will prepare for the Maysdorf Tract. Alan L.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: Individual Landholder’s and Farm Operator’s Certification and Reporting Forms for Acreage Limitation, 43 CFR part 426 and 43 CFR part 428. Abstract: This information collection requires certain landholders (direct or indirect landowners or lessees) and farm operators to complete forms demonstrating their compliance with the acreage limitation provisions of Federal reclamation law. These forms are submitted to districts who use the information to establish each landholder’s status with respect to landownership limitations, full-cost pricing thresholds, lease requirements, and other provisions of Federal reclamation law. In addition, forms are submitted by certain farm operators to provide information concerning the services they provide and the nature of their farm operating arrangements. All landholders whose entire westwide landholdings total 40 acres or less are exempt from the requirement to submit RRA forms. Landholders who are ‘‘Aqualified recipients’’ have RRA forms submittal thresholds of 80 acres or 240 acres depending on the district’s RRA forms submittal threshold category where the land is held. Only farm operators who provide multiple services to more than 960 acres held in trusts or by legal entities are required to submit forms. Changes to the RRA Forms and the Instructions to Those Forms We made a few editorial changes to the currently approved RRA forms and the instructions to those forms that are designed to assist the respondents by increasing their understanding of the forms, clarifying the instructions for use when completing the forms, and clarifying the information that is required to be submitted to the districts with the forms.

L. 91–310), we have revised the existing ‘‘Declaration of Public Entities Landholdings’’ (Form 7–21PE) to allow Reclamation to ascertain required information about public entities’ landholdings and the revenue generated from public entities’ farming activities. There is expected to be a minimal increase in burden hours resulting from the changes to this form because (1) the number of public entities expected to complete the revised areas of Form 7–21PE is minimal, (2) the majority of public entities will continue to submit the same information on the revised Form 7–21PE that they have already been submitting on the current Form 7–21PE, and (3) the majority of pubic entities will be allowed to skip entire sections of the revised Form 7–21PE based on the characteristics of their farming activities.

ACTION: Notice of renewal of a currently approved collection (OMB No. 1006– 0023). AGENCY: SUMMARY: In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.), the Bureau of Reclamation (we, our, or us) intends to submit a request for renewal (with revisions) of an existing approved information collection to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB): Limited Recipient Identification Sheet, Trust Information Sheet for Acreage Limitation, 43 CFR part 426, OMB VerDate jul<14>2003 15:06 Jan 31, 2005 Jkt 205001 Control Number: 1006–0023. As a result of Reclamation’s activities to fully implement the acreage limitation provisions applicable to public entities (43 CFR 426.10 and the Act of July 7, 1970, Public Law 91–310), a new ‘‘Public Entity Information Sheet’’ (Form 7–2565) has been developed for approval as part of this information collection. We request your comments on the proposed RRA forms and specific aspects of the information collection. DATES: Your written comments must be received on or before April 4, 2005. ADDRESSES: You may send written comments to the Bureau of Reclamation, Attention: D–5300, PO Box 25007, Denver, CO 80225–0007.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Stephanie McPhee at: (303) 445–2897. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: Limited Recipient Identification Sheet, Trust Information Sheet, Public Entity Information Sheet for Acreage Limitation, 43 CFR part 426 and the Act of July 7, 1970, Public Law 91–310. Abstract: Identification of limited recipients—Some entities that receive Reclamation irrigation water may believe that they are under the RRA forms submittal threshold and consequently, may not submit the appropriate RRA form(s). However, some of these entities may in fact have a different RRA forms submittal threshold than what they believe it to be due to the number of natural persons benefiting from each entity and the location of the land held by each entity. In addition, some entities that are exempt from the requirement to submit RRA forms due to the size of their landholdings (directly and indirectly owned and leased land) may in fact be receiving Reclamation irrigation water for which the full-cost rate must be paid because the start of Reclamation irrigation water deliveries occurred after October 1, 1981 (43 CFR 426.6(b)(2)). The information obtained through completion of the Limited Recipient Identification Sheet allows us to establish entities’ compliance with Federal reclamation law. The Limited Recipient Identification Sheet is disbursed at our discretion. The proposed revisions to the Limited Recipient Identification Sheet will be included starting in the 2006 water year, and are designed to facilitate ease of completion. Trust review—We are required to review and approve all trusts (43 CFR 426.7(b)(2)) in order to ensure trusts PO 00000 Frm 00093 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 5221 meet the regulatory criteria specified in 43 CFR 426.7. Land held in trust generally will be attributed to the beneficiaries of the trust rather than the trustee if the criteria are met. When we become aware of trusts with a relatively small landholding (40 acres or less), we may extend to those trusts the option to complete and submit for our review the Trust Information Sheet instead of actual trust documents. If we find nothing on the completed Trust Information Sheet that would warrant the further investigation of a particular trust, that trustee will not be burdened with submitting trust documents to us for in-depth review. The Trust Information Sheet is disbursed at our discretion. The proposed revisions to the Trust Information Sheet will be included starting in the 2006 water year, and are designed to facilitate ease of completion. Acreage limitation provisions applicable to public entities—Land farmed by a public entity can be considered exempt from the application of the acreage limitation provisions provided the public entity meets certain criteria pertaining to the revenue generated through the entity’s farming activities (43 CFR 426.10 and the Act of July 7, 1970, Public Law 91–310). We are required to ascertain whether or not public entities that receive Reclamation irrigation water meet such revenue criteria regardless of how much land the public entities hold (directly or indirectly own or lease) (43 CFR 426.10(a)). In order to minimize the burden on public entities, standard RRA forms are submitted by a public entity only when the public entity holds more than 40 acres, which makes it difficult to apply the revenue criteria as required to those public entities that hold less than 40 acres. A new ‘‘Public Entity Information Sheet’’ (Form 7–2565) has been developed for approval as part of this information collection. The information obtained through completion of Form 7–2565 allows us to establish compliance with Federal reclamation law for those public entities that hold less than 40 acres and thus do not submit a standard RRA form because they are below the RRA forms submittal threshold. In addition, for those public entities that do not meet the exemption criteria, we must determine the proper rate to charge for Reclamation irrigation water deliveries. There is anticipated to be a very minimal increase in burden hours resulting from the addition of this form because of the very limited type of landholders that can use this form (i.e., only those public entities that hold less E:\FR\FM\01FEN1.SGM 01FEN1

[[Page 5220]]

U.S.C. 3501 et seq.), the Bureau of Reclamation (we, our, or us) 
intends to submit a request for renewal (with revisions) of an existing 
approved information collection to the Office of Management and Budget 
(OMB): Individual Landholder's and Farm Operator's Certification and 
Reporting Forms for Acreage Limitation, 43 CFR part 426 and 43 CFR part 
428, OMB Control Number: 1006-0005. This information collection is 
required under the Reclamation Reform Act of 1982 (RRA), Acreage 
Limitation Rules and Regulations, 43 CFR part 426, and Information 
Requirements for Certain Farm Operations In Excess of 960 Acres and the 
Eligibility of Certain Formerly Excess Land, 43 CFR part 428. We 
request your comments on the revised RRA forms and specific aspects of 
the information collection.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:
    Title: Individual Landholder's and Farm Operator's Certification 
and Reporting Forms for Acreage Limitation, 43 CFR part 426 and 43 CFR 
part 428.
    Abstract: This information collection requires certain landholders 
(direct or indirect landowners or lessees) and farm operators to 
complete forms demonstrating their compliance with the acreage 
limitation provisions of Federal reclamation law. These forms are 
submitted to districts who use the information to establish each 
landholder's status with respect to landownership limitations, full-
cost pricing thresholds, lease requirements, and other provisions of 
Federal reclamation law. In addition, forms are submitted by certain 
farm operators to provide information concerning the services they 
provide and the nature of their farm operating arrangements. All 
landholders whose entire westwide landholdings total 40 acres or less 
are exempt from the requirement to submit RRA forms. Landholders who 
are ``Aqualified recipients'' have RRA forms submittal thresholds of 80 
acres or 240 acres depending on the district's RRA forms submittal 
threshold category where the land is held. Only farm operators who 
provide multiple services to more than 960 acres held in trusts or by 
legal entities are required to submit forms.

Changes to the RRA Forms and the Instructions to Those Forms

    We made a few editorial changes to the currently approved RRA forms 
and the instructions to those forms that are designed to assist the 
respondents by increasing their understanding of the forms, clarifying 
the instructions for use when completing the forms, and clarifying the 
information that is required to be submitted to the districts with the 
forms. The proposed revisions to the RRA forms will be included 
starting in the 2006 water year.
    In response to Reclamation's efforts to fully implement the acreage 
limitation provisions applicable to public entities (43 CFR 426.10 and 
the Act of July 7, 1970, Pub. L. 91-310), we have revised the existing 
``Declaration of Public Entities Landholdings'' (Form 7-21PE) to allow 
Reclamation to ascertain required information about public entities' 
landholdings and the revenue generated from public entities' farming 
activities. There is expected to be a minimal increase in burden hours 
resulting from the changes to this form because (1) the number of 
public entities expected to complete the revised areas of Form 7-21PE 
is minimal, (2) the majority of public entities will continue to submit 
the same information on the revised Form 7-21PE that they have already 
been submitting on the current Form 7-21PE, and (3) the majority of 
pubic entities will be allowed to skip entire sections of the revised 
Form 7-21PE based on the characteristics of their farming activities. 
The proposed revisions to Form 7-21PE will be included starting in the 
2006 water year.
