In order to determine the value, through appraisal, of the parcels of land proposed to be sold, certain extraordinary assumptions may have been made of the attributes and limitations of the lands and potential effects of local regulations and policies on potential future land uses. Through publication of this Notice, the Bureau of Land Management gives notice that these assumptions may not be endorsed or approved by units of local government. It is the buyer’s responsibility to be aware of all applicable Federal, state, and local government laws, regulations and policies that may affect the subject lands, including any required dedication of lands for public uses. It is also the buyer’s responsibility to be aware of existing or projected use of nearby properties. When conveyed out of Federal ownership, the lands will be subject to any applicable laws, regulations, and policies of the PO 00000 Frm 00063 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 20129 applicable local government for proposed future uses. It will be the responsibility of the purchaser to be aware of those laws regulations, and policies, and to seek any required local approvals pursuant to them. Buyers should also make themselves aware of any Federal or state law or regulations that may impact the future use of the property. Any land lacking access from a public road or highway will be conveyed as such, and future access acquisition will be the responsibility of the buyer. Environmental Assessment. The SNPLMA parcels proposed for sale were analyzed in an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS), entitled ‘‘Las Vegas Land Disposal Boundary EIS’’, approved December 23, 2004. This EIS is available for public review at the BLM LVFO. An Environmental Assessment (EA) for this sale, which tiers to the EIS, has also been prepared for public review and comment at the BLM LVFO.

Other information concerning the sale, including the appraisals, reservations, sale procedures and conditions, CERCLA and other environmental documents will be available for review at the BLM LVFO, or by calling (702) 515–5000 and asking to speak to a member of the Sales Team. Most of this information also will be available on the Internet at http:// propertydisposal.gsa.gov. Public Comments: The general public and interested parties may submit comments regarding the proposed sale to the Field Manager, BLM LVFO, up to 45 days after publication of this Notice in the Federal Register.

Metrologic filed an opposition to Symbol’s motion, asserting that Symbol failed to show good cause for its amendment and that Metrologic would be unduly prejudiced by an amendment to the complaint just one month before the close of discovery. The Commission investigative attorney supported Symbol’s motion. On March 22, 2006, the ALJ issued an ID (Order No. 9) granting Symbol’s motion to amend the complaint and notice of investigation. The ALJ found that, pursuant to Commission Rule 210.14(b)(1) (19 CFR 210.14(b)(1)), there was good cause to add claims 10 and 11 of the ’308 patent, claims 8 and 11 of the ’889 patent, and claims 3, 7, 9, and 10 of the ’514 patent to the complaint and notice of investigation.

    18. All sales are made in accordance with and subject to the 
governing provisions of law and applicable regulations. In general, the 
BLM may accept or reject any or all offers, or withdraw any parcel of

Additional Information

    If not sold, any parcel described above in this Notice may be 
identified for sale at a later date without further legal notice. 
Unsold parcels may be offered for sale in a future online Internet 
auction. Internet auction procedures will be available at http://
www.auctionrp.com. If unsold on the Internet, parcels may be put up for 
sale at future oral and online Internet auctions without additional 
legal notice. Upon publication of this Notice and until the completion 
of the sale, the BLM is no longer accepting land use applications 
affecting any parcel identified for sale, including parcels that have 
been published in a previous NORA. However, land use applications may 
be considered after completion of the sale for parcels that are not 
sold through oral or online Internet auction procedures provided the 
authorization will not adversely affect the marketability or value of 
the parcel.
    In order to determine the value, through appraisal, of the parcels 
of land proposed to be sold, certain extraordinary assumptions may have 
been made of the attributes and limitations of the lands and potential 
effects of local regulations and policies on potential future land 
uses. Through publication of this Notice, the Bureau of Land Management 
gives notice that these assumptions may not be endorsed or approved by 
units of local government. It is the buyer's responsibility to be aware 
of all applicable Federal, state, and local government laws, 
regulations and policies that may affect the subject lands, including 
any required dedication of lands for public uses. It is also the 
buyer's responsibility to be aware of existing or projected use of 
nearby properties. When conveyed out of Federal ownership, the lands 
will be subject to any applicable laws, regulations, and policies of 
the applicable local government for proposed future uses. It will be 
the responsibility of the purchaser to be aware of those laws 
regulations, and policies, and to seek any required local approvals 
pursuant to them. Buyers should also make themselves aware of any 
Federal or state law or regulations that may impact the future use of 
the property. Any land lacking access from a public road or highway 
will be conveyed as such, and future access acquisition will be the 
responsibility of the buyer.
    Environmental Assessment. The SNPLMA parcels proposed for sale were 
analyzed in an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS), entitled ``Las 
Vegas Land Disposal Boundary EIS'', approved December 23, 2004. This 
EIS is available for public review at the BLM LVFO. An Environmental 
Assessment (EA) for this sale, which tiers to the EIS, has also been 
prepared for public review and comment at the BLM LVFO. BLM will be 
accepting public comment on the EA during the time for comment on the 
proposed sale up to June 5, 2006.

(Authority: 43 C.F.R. 2711.1-2(a) and (c))

Termination of Portions of R&PP Classification--SNPLMA Withdrawal

    A portion of the following lease granted under the Recreation and 
Public Purposes (R&PP) Act, 43 U.S.C. 869 et. seq.) has been 
relinquished: N-63336 (68FR47929). The Notice officially terminates the 
R&PP classification and segregation of a portion of that parcel. A 
portion of R&PP application, N-78724 has been withdrawn by the 
applicant. This notice serves to inform you that land previously leased 
and previously requested for R&PP purposes is no longer required and is 
now part of this sale. It does not serve as an opening order because 
those parcels are within the disposal boundary set by Congress in 
SNPLMA. Pursuant to section 4(c) of SNPLMA, these parcels are 
withdrawn, subject to valid existing rights, from entry and 
appropriation under the public land laws, location and entry under the 
mining laws and from operation under the mineral leasing and geothermal 
leasing laws, until such time as the Secretary of the Interior 
terminates the withdrawal or the lands are conveyed.

    Dated: March 15, 2006.
Juan Palma,
Field Manager.
