SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: A complete copy of Environmental Assessment #MT–010–03–08, which supports this restriction, may be viewed at: http://www.mt.blm.gov/bifo/ea/ ShootingEA/FinalShootingEA.pdf. While hikers, horseback riders, mountain bicyclists and other users can schedule their use around published hunting seasons for safety reasons; they are not able to avoid random target shooting. Local conditions, including heavy timber and rough terrain, reduce visibility and increase the hazard to other users from target shooters. Recent incidents involving random target shooting have resulted in endangerment and injury to other users. To reduce the incidence of future conflicts, three areas of public land known as the Acton Area, 21-Mile Area, and Shepherd Ah-Nei, located north of Billings, Montana, are being closed to target shooting with firearms. These areas will remain open to hunting by licensed hunters during seasons administered by the Montana Department of Fish, Wildlife and Parks. This Restriction does not apply to other lands, specifically the ‘‘17–Mile’’ area located west of Highway 87, north of Billings, Montana, on the Crooked Creek Road.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The purpose of this call for coal information is to obtain any available coal resource data and any other resource information pertinent to applying the coal unsuitability criteria, and to identify any areas of interest for possible Federal coal leasing. The Resource Management Plan will identify areas acceptable for further consideration for leasing and estimate the amount of recoverable coal. Only those areas that have development potential may be identified as acceptable for further consideration for leasing. Coal companies, State and local governments and the general public are encouraged to submit information on coal geology, economic data and other development potential considerations. Where such information is determined to indicate developmental potential for an area, the area may be included in the land use planning evaluation for coal leasing. The BLM will use the unsuitability criteria and procedures outlined in 43 CFR part 3461 to assess where areas are unsuitable for all or certain stipulated methods of mining. Additionally, multiple use decisions that are not included in the unsuitability criteria may eliminate certain coal deposits from further consideration for leasing to protect other resource values and land uses that are locally, regionally or nationally important or unique. In making these multiple use decisions BLM will place particular emphasis on protecting the E:\FR\FM\08MRN1.SGM 08MRN1 Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 44 / Tuesday, March 8, 2005 / Notices following: Air and water quality, wetlands riparian areas and sole source aquifers; the Federal lands which, if leased, would adversely impact units of the National Park System, the National Wildlife Refuge System, the National Trail System, and the National Wild and Scenic Rivers System. Before adopting the resource management plan that makes an assessment of lands acceptable for further consideration for leasing, the BLM will consult with the state Governor and the state agency charged with the responsibility for maintaining the state’s coal unsuitability program.
