ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: SUMMARY: The State of Alaska has filed an application for a recordable PO 00000 Frm 00056 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 disclaimer of interest in certain lands underlying the Kasilof River by the United States. DATES: Comments on the State of Alaska’s applications should be submitted on or before June 1, 2005. Interested parties may submit to comments on the BLM Draft Navigability Reports on or before May 2, 2005. ADDRESSES: Comments should be sent to the Chief, Branch of Lands and Realty, BLM Alaska State Office, 222 West 7th Avenue, #13, Anchorage, Alaska 99513– 7599.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On May 12, 2004, the State of Alaska filed applications for recordable disclaimers of interest pursuant to section 315 of the Federal Land Policy and Management Act and the regulations contained in 43 CFR subpart 1864 for lands underlying Kasilof River (AA–085446). A recordable disclaimer of interest, if issued, will confirm the United States has no valid interest in the subject lands. The notice is intended to notify the public of the pending applications and the State’s grounds for supporting it. The State asserts that this river is navigable; therefore, under the Equal Footing Doctrine and Submerged Lands Act of 1953, ownership of these lands underlying the rivers automatically passed from the United States to the State at the time of statehood in 1959. The State’s application, AA–085446, is for ‘‘all submerged lands lying within the bed of the Kasilof River, and all interconnected sloughs, between the ordinary high water lines of the left and right banks from the boundary of the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge at Township 2 North, Range 11 West, Sections 5 and 8, Seward Meridian, Alaska, downstream to its mouth in Cook Inlet within Townships 3 and 4 North, Range 12 West, Seward Meridian, Alaska’’. The State did not identify any known adverse claimant or occupant of the affected lands. A final decision on the merits of the applications will not be made before June 1, 2005. During the 90-day period, interested parties may comment upon the State’s application, AA–085446, and supporting evidence. Interested parties may comment on the evidentiary evidence presented in the BLM’s Draft Navigability Reports on or before May 2, 2005. E:\FR\FM\03MRN1.SGM 03MRN1
