However, this office is of the opinion that the lessees request for reduced rental and royalty rates contains sufficient evidence to determine that in the absence of granting a reduction of the rental and royalty rates to that of the original lease terms, undue economic hardship will occur and that it is equitable to do so. Therefore, upon reinstatement the rental and royalty rates for lease WYW145694 will remain at $2.00 per acre or fraction of an acre per year and 121⁄2 percent, respectively. The lessee has paid the required $500 administrative fee and $166 to reimburse the Department for the cost of this Federal Register notice. The lessee has met all the requirements for reinstatement of the lease as set out in Section 31(d) and (e) of the Mineral Lands Leasing Act of 1920 (30 U.S.C. 188), and the Bureau of Land Management is proposing to reinstate lease WYW145694 effective August 1, 2003, under the original terms and conditions of the lease, rates cited above.
