Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 241 / Friday, December 15, 2006 / Notices expenditure of $100 million or more by any State, local, or tribal government or anyone in the private sector. Therefore, a statement under section 202 of the act is not required. Energy Effects This final directive has been reviewed under Executive Order 13211, Actions Concerning Regulations That Significantly Affect Energy Supply, Distribution, or Use. It has been determined that this final directive does not constitute a significant energy action as defined in the Executive order. Controlling Paperwork Burdens on the Public This final directive does not contain any additional record keeping or reporting requirements or other information collection requirements as defined in 5 CFR part 1320 that are not already required by law or not already approved for use, and therefore, imposes no additional paperwork burden on the public. Accordingly, the review provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.) and its implementing regulations at 5 CFR part 1320 do not apply. Text of Amendment Note: The Forest Service organizes its directive system by alphanumeric codes and subject headings. Only those sections of the Forest Service Handbook that are the subject of this notice are set out here. Reviewers wishing to review the entire chapter 30 may obtain a copy electronically from the Forest Service’s directives Web site on the World Wide Web/Internet at http://www.fs.fed.us/ im/directives. Forest Service Handbook 1909.15—Environmental Policy and Procedures Handbook mstockstill on PROD1PC61 with NOTICES Chapter 30—Categorical Exclusion from Documentation * * * * * 30.3—Policy Revise existing paragraph 2, add a new paragraph 4, and redesignate existing paragraph 4 as paragraph 5 as follows: 1. A proposed action may be categorically excluded from further analysis and documentation in an environmental impact statement (EIS) or environmental assessment (EA) only if there are no extraordinary circumstances related to the proposed action and if: a. The proposed action is within one of the categories in the Department of Agriculture (USDA) NEPA policies and VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:47 Dec 14, 2006 Jkt 211001 procedures in Title 7, Code of Federal Regulations, part 1b (7 CFR part 1b), or b. The proposed action is within a category listed in section 31.12 or 31.2 of this Handbook. 2. Resource conditions that should be considered in determining whether extraordinary circumstances related to a proposed action warrant further analysis and documentation in an EA or an EIS are: a. Federally listed threatened or endangered species or designated critical habitat, species proposed for Federal listing or proposed critical habitat, or Forest Service sensitive species. b. Flood plains, wetlands, or municipal watersheds. c. Congressionally designated areas, such as wilderness, wilderness study areas, or national recreation areas. d. Inventoried roadless areas. e. Research natural areas. f. American Indian and Alaska Native religious or cultural sites. g. Archaeological sites, or historic properties or areas. The mere presence of one or more of these resource conditions does not preclude use of a categorical exclusion. It is (1) The existence of a cause-effect relationship between a proposed action and the potential effect on these resource conditions and (2) if such a relationship exists, it is the degree of the potential effect of a proposed action on these resource conditions that determines whether extraordinary circumstances exist. 3. Scoping is required on all proposed actions, including those that would appear to be categorically excluded. If the responsible official determines, based on scoping, that it is uncertain whether the proposed action may have a significant effect on the environment, prepare an EA (ch. 40). If the responsible official determines, based on scoping, that the proposed action may have a significant environmental effect, prepare an EIS (ch. 20). 4. If the proposed action is approval of a land management plan, plan amendment, or plan revision, the public participation requirements of 36 CFR 219.9 satisfy the scoping requirement of paragraph 3 of this section. 5. Section 18 of this Handbook contains related direction regarding correction, supplementation, or revision of environmental documents and reconsideration of decisions to take action. * * * * * 31.2—Categories of Actions for Which a Project or Case File and Decision Memo Are Required PO 00000 Frm 00021 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 75495 Add a new paragraph 16 as follows: * * * * 16. Land management plans, plan amendments and plan revisions developed in accordance with 36 CFR 219 et seq. that provide broad guidance and information for project and activity decision-making in a National Forest System unit. Proposals for actions that approve projects and activities, or that command anyone to refrain from undertaking projects and activities, or that grant, withhold or modify contracts, permits or other formal legal instruments, are outside the scope of this category and shall be considered separately under Forest Service NEPA procedures. * * * * * 32.2—Decision Memo Required Add the following as a third unnumbered paragraph: * * * * * If the proposed action is approval of a land management plan, plan amendment, or plan revision, the plan approval document required by 36 CFR 219.7(c) satisfies the decision memo requirements of this section. * * * * * * Dated: December 8, 2006.
