ACTION: Notice of Intent (NOI) to prepare a programmatic environmental impact statement (EIS) and scoping meetings. DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIOR SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIOR AGENCY: BILLING CODE 4310–FB–P AGENCY: BILLING CODE 4310–FB–P 2. Purpose of Notice of Intent Pursuant to the regulations implementing the procedural provisions of the NEPA, the Minerals Management Service (MMS) is announcing its intent to prepare a programmatic EIS for the National Offshore Alternate EnergyRelated Use (AERU) Program and Rule as authorized by the Energy Policy Act of 2005. The NOI also serves to announce the scoping process for this programmatic EIS. Throughout the scoping process, Federal, State, and local government agencies, and other interested parties have the opportunity to advise MMS in determining the significant issues, alternatives, and mitigation measures to be considered for analysis in the programmatic EIS. The programmatic EIS analysis will focus on the potential environmental effects of implementing the AERU program, and associated rulemaking. 3. Cooperating Agency The MMS invites other Federal agencies and State, tribal, and local governments to consider becoming cooperating agencies in the preparation of the programmatic EIS. We invite qualified government entities to inquire about cooperating agency status for the EIS. Following the guidelines from the Council of Environmental Quality (CEQ), qualified agencies and governments are those with ’’jurisdiction by law or special expertise.’’ Potential cooperating agencies should consider their authority PO 00000 Frm 00111 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 26559 and capacity to assume the responsibilities of a cooperating agency and to remember that an agency’s role in the environmental analysis neither enlarges nor diminishes the final decision making authority of any other agency involved in the NEPA process. Upon request, the MMS will provide potential cooperating agencies with a written summary of ground rules for cooperating agencies, including time schedules and critical action dates, milestones, responsibilities, scope and detail of cooperating agencies’ contributions, and availability of predecisional information. The MMS anticipates this summary will form the basis for understanding between the MMS and each cooperating agency. Agencies should also consider the ‘‘Factors for Determining Cooperating Agency Status’’ in Attachment 1 to CEQ’s January 30, 2002, Memorandum for the Heads of Federal Agencies: Cooperating Agencies in Implementing the Procedural Requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act. A copy of this document is available at: http://ceq.eh.doe.gov/nepa/regs/ cooperating/ cooperatingagenciesmemorandum.html and http://ceq.eh.doe.gov/nepa/regs/ cooperating/ cooperatingagencymemofactors.html. The MMS, as the lead agency, will not provide financial assistance to cooperating agencies. Even if an organization is not a cooperating agency, opportunities will exist to provide information and comments to MMS during the normal public input phases of the NEPA/EIS process. If further information about cooperating agencies is needed, please contact Mr. James F. Bennett at (703) 787–1660. 4. Comments Federal, State, tribal, local government agencies, and other interested parties are requested to provide comments on the scope of the programmatic EIS, significant issues that should be addressed, and alternatives that should be considered in one of the following three ways: 1. Electronically, using the online comment form available on the project Web site: ocsenergy.anl.gov. This is the preferred method for commenting. 2. In written form, mailed or delivered to MMS Renewable Energy and Alternate Use Programmatic EIS Scoping, Argonne National Laboratory, 9700 S. Cass Avenue, Argonne, IL 60439. 3. In person, at public scoping meetings to be held in multiple locations in May and June, 2006 (see below). E:\FR\FM\05MYN1.SGM 05MYN1
