ACTION: Notice of final supplementary rules. wwhite on PROD1PC65 with NOTICES AGENCY: SUMMARY: In accordance with the Knolls Recreation Area Management Plan, the VerDate Aug<31>2005 18:56 Dec 28, 2005 Jkt 208001 Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Salt Lake Field Office is issuing final supplementary rules. The BLM has determined that these rules are necessary to enhance the safety of visitors, protect natural resources, improve recreation opportunities, and protect public health. DATES: The rules are effective January 30, 2006. ADDRESSES: You may send inquiries or suggestions to the Bureau of Land Management, Salt Lake Field Office, 2370 S. 2300 W. Salt Lake City, Utah 84119, or via Internet email to: Mail_UT–Salt_Lake@ut.blm.gov. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mandy Rigby, Outdoor Recreation Planner, 2370 S. 2300 W. Salt Lake City, Utah 84119, 801–977–4300. Persons who use a telecommunications device for the deaf (TDD) may contact this individual by calling the Federal Information Relay Service (FIRS) at (800) 877–8339, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: for off-highway vehicle (OHV) use and it was determined that the high amount of OHV use and target shooting are not compatible. Target shooting is still allowed on over 96 percent of lands managed by the BLM Salt Lake Field Office. The second comment questioned the purpose of the fire pan requirement. Because of the high use that is occurring and will increase at Knolls, we determined that requiring the use of fire pans will help prevent the degradation of the natural appearance of the area due to the proliferation of rock fire rings, fire debris, and blackening of the soil. This allows for the continued use of campfires while maintaining and protecting natural resources for all visitors to enjoy. For groups who desire to build a fire that would go beyond the limits of a fire pan, a permit system has been developed to authorize such use on a case-by-case basis. I. Background The BLM is establishing these final supplementary rules under the authority of 43 CFR 8365.1–6. BLM is issuing these supplementary rules because of health and safety concerns due to current off-highway vehicle use within the Knolls Special Recreation Management Area (SRMA). A significant increase in visitation has occurred within the SRMA, which has led to numerous safety concerns including, but not limited to: glass and campfire remains left in sand dune areas, use of dangerous motorcycle jumps, and excessive motor vehicle speed on maintained roads. These supplementary rules are not a significant regulatory action and are not subject to review by the Office of Management and Budget under Executive Order 12866. These supplementary rules will not have an effect of $100 million or more on the economy. They are not intended to affect commercial activity, but contain rules of conduct for public use of a certain recreational area. They will not adversely affect, in a material way, the economy, productivity, competition, jobs, the environment, public health or safety, or State, local, or Tribal governments or communities. They will not create a serious inconsistency or otherwise interfere with an action taken or planned by another agency. These supplementary rules do not alter the budgetary effects of entitlements, grants, user fees, or loan programs or the right or obligations of their recipients; nor do they raise novel legal or policy issues. They merely impose certain rules on recreational activities on a limited portion of the public lands in Utah in order to protect human health, safety, and the environment. II. Discussion of Comments These supplementary rules were published as interim final supplementary rules on September 2, 2005, in the Federal Register (70 FR 52440–52443). Comments were solicited in that publication until November 1, 2005, and could be submitted by mail, electronic means, or by telephone. The Salt Lake Field Office received two comments, for which responses are given below. We made no changes as a result of these comments to the supplementary rules. One comment requested that target shooting be allowed in predefined areas within the Knolls SRMA. An emergency closure to target shooting has been in effect within the Knolls SRMA since July 2000 to protect the safety of visitors. Knolls has been designated as a Special Recreation Management Area PO 00000 Frm 00069 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 III. Procedural Matters Executive Order 12866, Regulatory Planning and Review National Environmental Policy Act BLM has prepared an environmental assessment (EA) and has found that these supplementary rules would not constitute a major Federal action significantly affecting the quality of the human environment under section 102(2)(C) of the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA), 42 U.S.C. 4332(2)(C). These supplementary rules E:\FR\FM\29DEN1.SGM 29DEN1 Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 249 / Thursday, December 29, 2005 / Notices merely contain rules of conduct for the Knolls SRMA. These rules are designed to protect the environment and the public health and safety. A detailed statement under NEPA is not required. BLM has placed the EA and the Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) on file in the BLM Administrative Record at the address specified in the ADDRESSES section. Regulatory Flexibility Act Congress enacted the Regulatory Flexibility Act (RFA) of 1980, as amended, 5 U.S.C. 601–612, to ensure that Government regulations do not unnecessarily or disproportionately burden small entities. The RFA requires a regulatory flexibility analysis if a rule would have a significant economic impact, either detrimental or beneficial, on a substantial number of small entities. These supplementary rules do not pertain specifically to commercial or governmental entities of any size, but to public recreational use of specific public lands. Therefore, BLM has determined under the RFA that these supplementary rules would not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act (SBREFA) These supplementary rules do not constitute a ‘‘major rule’’ as defined at 5 U.S.C. 804(2). They merely contain rules of conduct for recreational use of certain public lands. They have no effect on business, commercial, or industrial use of the public lands. wwhite on PROD1PC65 with NOTICES Unfunded Mandates Reform Act These supplementary rules do not impose an unfunded mandate on State, local, or Tribal governments or the private sector of more than $100 million per year; nor do they have a significant or unique effect on State, local, or Tribal governments or the private sector. They merely impose reasonable restrictions on recreational activities on certain public lands to protect natural resources and human health and safety. Therefore, BLM is not required to prepare a statement containing the information required by the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act (2 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.). Executive Order 12630, Governmental Actions and Interference With Constitutionally Protected Property Rights (Takings) These supplementary rules do not represent a government action capable of interfering with Constitutionally protected property rights. They do not address property rights in any form, and do not cause the impairment of VerDate Aug<31>2005 18:56 Dec 28, 2005 Jkt 208001 anybody’s property rights. Therefore, the Department of the Interior has determined that these rules will not cause a taking of private property or require further discussion of takings implications under this Executive Order. Executive Order 13132, Federalism These supplementary rules will not have a substantial direct effect on the states, on the relationship between the national government and the states, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities among the various levels of government. They affect land in only one state, Utah, and do not address jurisdictional issues involving the state government. These supplementary rules do not come into conflict with any state law or regulation. Therefore, in accordance with Executive Order 13132, BLM has determined that these supplementary rules do not have sufficient Federalism implications to warrant preparation of a Federalism Assessment. Executive Order 12988, Civil Justice Reform Under Executive Order 12988, the Office of the Solicitor has determined that these supplementary rules will not unduly burden the judicial system and that they meet the requirements of sections 3(a) and 3(b)(2) of the Order. The supplementary rules impose prohibited acts, but they are straightforward and not confusing, and their enforcement should not unreasonably burden the United States Magistrate who will try any persons cited for violating them. Executive Order 13175, Consultation and Coordination With Indian Tribal Governments In accordance with Executive Order 13175, we have found that these supplementary rules do not include policies that have Tribal implications. They do not affect lands held for the benefit of Indians, Aleuts, or Eskimos. Paperwork Reduction Act These supplementary rules do not contain information collection requirements that the Office of Management and Budget must approve under the Paperwork Reduction Act, 44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.

Final Supplementary Rules on Public Lands Within the Knolls 
Special Recreation Management Area Managed by the Salt Lake Field 
Office, Utah

AGENCY: Bureau of Land Management, Interior.

ACTION: Notice of final supplementary rules.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: In accordance with the Knolls Recreation Area Management Plan, 
the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Salt Lake Field Office is issuing 
final supplementary rules. The BLM has determined that these rules are 
necessary to enhance the safety of visitors, protect natural resources, 
improve recreation opportunities, and protect public health.

DATES: The rules are effective January 30, 2006.

ADDRESSES: You may send inquiries or suggestions to the Bureau of Land 
Management, Salt Lake Field Office, 2370 S. 2300 W. Salt Lake City, 
Utah 84119, or via Internet email to: Mail--UT-Salt--Lake@ut.blm.gov.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mandy Rigby, Outdoor Recreation 
Planner, 2370 S. 2300 W. Salt Lake City, Utah 84119, 801-977-4300. 
Persons who use a telecommunications device for the deaf (TDD) may 
contact this individual by calling the Federal Information Relay 
Service (FIRS) at (800) 877-8339, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

    The BLM is establishing these final supplementary rules under the 
authority of 43 CFR 8365.1-6. BLM is issuing these supplementary rules 
because of health and safety concerns due to current off-highway 
vehicle use within the Knolls Special Recreation Management Area 
(SRMA). A significant increase in visitation has occurred within the 
SRMA, which has led to numerous safety concerns including, but not 
limited to: glass and campfire remains left in sand dune areas, use of 
dangerous motorcycle jumps, and excessive motor vehicle speed on 
maintained roads.

II. Discussion of Comments

    These supplementary rules were published as interim final 
supplementary rules on September 2, 2005, in the Federal Register (70 
FR 52440-52443). Comments were solicited in that publication until 
November 1, 2005, and could be submitted by mail, electronic means, or 
by telephone. The Salt Lake Field Office received two comments, for 
which responses are given below. We made no changes as a result of 
these comments to the supplementary rules.
    One comment requested that target shooting be allowed in predefined 
areas within the Knolls SRMA. An emergency closure to target shooting 
has been in effect within the Knolls SRMA since July 2000 to protect 
the safety of visitors. Knolls has been designated as a Special 
Recreation Management Area for off-highway vehicle (OHV) use and it was 
determined that the high amount of OHV use and target shooting are not 
compatible. Target shooting is still allowed on over 96 percent of 
lands managed by the BLM Salt Lake Field Office.
    The second comment questioned the purpose of the fire pan 
requirement. Because of the high use that is occurring and will 
increase at Knolls, we determined that requiring the use of fire pans 
will help prevent the degradation of the natural appearance of the area 
due to the proliferation of rock fire rings, fire debris, and 
blackening of the soil. This allows for the continued use of campfires 
while maintaining and protecting natural resources for all visitors to 
enjoy. For groups who desire to build a fire that would go beyond the 
limits of a fire pan, a permit system has been developed to authorize 
such use on a case-by-case basis.

III. Procedural Matters

Executive Order 12866, Regulatory Planning and Review

    These supplementary rules are not a significant regulatory action 
and are not subject to review by the Office of Management and Budget 
under Executive Order 12866. These supplementary rules will not have an 
effect of $100 million or more on the economy. They are not intended to 
affect commercial activity, but contain rules of conduct for public use 
of a certain recreational area. They will not adversely affect, in a 
material way, the economy, productivity, competition, jobs, the 
environment, public health or safety, or State, local, or Tribal 
governments or communities. They will not create a serious 
inconsistency or otherwise interfere with an action taken or planned by 
another agency. These supplementary rules do not alter the budgetary 
effects of entitlements, grants, user fees, or loan programs or the 
right or obligations of their recipients; nor do they raise novel legal 
or policy issues. They merely impose certain rules on recreational 
activities on a limited portion of the public lands in Utah in order to 
protect human health, safety, and the environment.

National Environmental Policy Act

    BLM has prepared an environmental assessment (EA) and has found 
that these supplementary rules would not constitute a major Federal 
action significantly affecting the quality of the human environment 
under section 102(2)(C) of the National Environmental Policy Act of 
1969 (NEPA), 42 U.S.C. 4332(2)(C). These supplementary rules

[[Page 77187]]

merely contain rules of conduct for the Knolls SRMA. These rules are 
designed to protect the environment and the public health and safety. A 
detailed statement under NEPA is not required. BLM has placed the EA 
and the Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) on file in the BLM 
Administrative Record at the address specified in the ADDRESSES 
section.

Regulatory Flexibility Act

    Congress enacted the Regulatory Flexibility Act (RFA) of 1980, as 
amended, 5 U.S.C. 601-612, to ensure that Government regulations do not 
unnecessarily or disproportionately burden small entities. The RFA 
requires a regulatory flexibility analysis if a rule would have a 
significant economic impact, either detrimental or beneficial, on a 
substantial number of small entities. These supplementary rules do not 
pertain specifically to commercial or governmental entities of any 
size, but to public recreational use of specific public lands. 
Therefore, BLM has determined under the RFA that these supplementary 
rules would not have a significant economic impact on a substantial 
number of small entities.

Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act (SBREFA)

    These supplementary rules do not constitute a ``major rule'' as 
defined at 5 U.S.C. 804(2). They merely contain rules of conduct for 
recreational use of certain public lands. They have no effect on 
business, commercial, or industrial use of the public lands.

Unfunded Mandates Reform Act

    These supplementary rules do not impose an unfunded mandate on 
State, local, or Tribal governments or the private sector of more than 
$100 million per year; nor do they have a significant or unique effect 
on State, local, or Tribal governments or the private sector. They 
merely impose reasonable restrictions on recreational activities on 
certain public lands to protect natural resources and human health and 
safety. Therefore, BLM is not required to prepare a statement 
containing the information required by the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act 
(2 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.).

Executive Order 12630, Governmental Actions and Interference With 
Constitutionally Protected Property Rights (Takings)

    These supplementary rules do not represent a government action 
capable of interfering with Constitutionally protected property rights. 
They do not address property rights in any form, and do not cause the 
impairment of anybody's property rights. Therefore, the Department of 
the Interior has determined that these rules will not cause a taking of 
private property or require further discussion of takings implications 
under this Executive Order.

Executive Order 13132, Federalism

    These supplementary rules will not have a substantial direct effect 
on the states, on the relationship between the national government and 
the states, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities among 
the various levels of government. They affect land in only one state, 
Utah, and do not address jurisdictional issues involving the state 
government. These supplementary rules do not come into conflict with 
any state law or regulation. Therefore, in accordance with Executive 
Order 13132, BLM has determined that these supplementary rules do not 
have sufficient Federalism implications to warrant preparation of a 
Federalism Assessment.

Executive Order 12988, Civil Justice Reform

    Under Executive Order 12988, the Office of the Solicitor has 
determined that these supplementary rules will not unduly burden the 
judicial system and that they meet the requirements of sections 3(a) 
and 3(b)(2) of the Order. The supplementary rules impose prohibited 
acts, but they are straightforward and not confusing, and their 
enforcement should not unreasonably burden the United States Magistrate 
who will try any persons cited for violating them.

Executive Order 13175, Consultation and Coordination With Indian Tribal 
Governments

    In accordance with Executive Order 13175, we have found that these 
supplementary rules do not include policies that have Tribal 
implications. They do not affect lands held for the benefit of Indians, 
Aleuts, or Eskimos.

Paperwork Reduction Act

    These supplementary rules do not contain information collection 
requirements that the Office of Management and Budget must approve 
under the Paperwork Reduction Act, 44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.

Author

    The principal author of these supplementary rules is Mandy Rigby, 
Outdoor Recreation Planner, Salt Lake Field Office, Bureau of Land 
Management.
