In response to recommendations made by the Southwest Resource Advisory Council and other concerned individuals, clubs, and organizations, the BLM proposes to change the existing ‘‘Open’’ designation to ‘‘Limited to Existing’’ for all public lands administered by the field office. In addition, the BLM is proposing a comprehensive travel management plan establishing a transportation system of designated roads and trails within the Dry Creek area. The proposed action does not affect: • Travel decisions in the Gunnison Gorge National Conservation Area. • North Delta OHV Play Area, which will be addressed in subsequent travel management planning. • Gunnison Travel Interim Restrictions Plan Amendment area, which will be addressed in subsequent travel management planning. • Other designations such as ‘‘Limited to Existing’’ and ‘‘Limited to Designated’’ areas in the RMPs. These areas will be addressed in subsequent travel management planning. Preliminary issues and management concerns have been identified by BLM personnel, other agencies, and in meetings with individuals and user groups. They represent the BLM’s knowledge to date on the existing issues and concerns with current management. Some of these issues and concerns include: • Impacts to other public land users and adjacent private landowners; • Impacts to wildlife habitat; SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: PO 00000 Frm 00132 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 10243 • Impacts to water quality, cultural sites, vegetation, including riparian and wetland areas, and soils; and • Identification of recreational opportunities. These issues, along with others that may be identified through public participation, will be considered in the planning process. The public is encouraged to help identify issues and concerns during the scoping phase. The purpose of the public scoping process is to determine relevant issues that will influence the scope of the environmental analysis and management alternatives. These issues will also guide the planning process. You may submit comments on issues and planning criteria in writing to the BLM at any public scoping meeting, or by using one of the methods listed in the ADDRESSES section above. The minutes and list of attendees for each scoping meeting will be available to the public and open for 30 days after the meeting to any participant who wishes to clarify the views he or she expressed. An interdisciplinary approach will be used to develop the plan amendment in order to consider the variety of resource issues and concerns identified. Disciplines involved in the planning process will include specialists with expertise in rangeland management, outdoor recreation, law enforcement, archaeology, wildlife and fisheries, lands and realty, hydrology, soils, and vegetation. Notification of the planning process will be made to the Governor of Colorado, County Commissioners, local tribes, and potentially affected members of the public.

E7–4069 Filed 3–6–07; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 4310–JB–P DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIOR Minerals Management Service Agency Information Collection Activities: Proposed Collection, Comment Request Minerals Management Service (MMS), Interior. ACTION: Notice of a revision of a currently approved information collection (OMB Control Number 1010– 0120). AGENCY: SUMMARY: To comply with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA), we are inviting comments on a collection of information that we will submit to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for review and approval. PO 00000 Frm 00133 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 The title of this information collection request (ICR) is ‘‘30 CFR Part 206— Product Valuation, Subparts F and J; Part 210—Forms and Reports, Subparts E and H; and Part 218—Collection of Royalties, Rentals, Bonuses and Other Monies Due the Federal Government, Subpart E.’’ We changed the title of this ICR to clarify the regulatory language we are covering under 30 CFR parts 206, 210, and 218 and to reflect OMB consolidation approval of two solid mineral-related ICRs. Those ICRs were titled: • 1010–0074: 30 CFR Part 206— Product Valuation, Subpart J—Indian Coal (Forms MMS–4292, Coal Washing Allowance Report, and MMS–4293, Coal Transportation Allowance Report); and • 1010–0120: 30 CFR Part 206, Subpart F—Federal Coal and Subpart J—Indian Coal; Part 210, Subpart B— Oil, Gas, and OCS Sulfur—General, Subpart E—Solid Minerals, General, Subpart H—Geothermal Resources; Part 218, Subpart B—Oil and Gas, General, Subpart E—Solid Minerals—General (Form MMS–4430, Solid Minerals Production and Royalty Report). In the two ICRs, much of the general information was repeated and cross referenced. This consolidated ICR 1010– 0120 eliminates that duplication of effort and redundancy of data and also provides for review of all solids and geothermal information collection requirements on a MMS Solids and Geothermal Compliance and Asset Management program-wide basis. The current ICR does not expire until October 31, 2007 and has a total of 1,751 burden hours as of OMB Notice of Change dated December 9, 2005, which consolidated the burden hours from ICRs 1010–0074 and 1010–0120. DATES: Submit written comments on or before May 7, 2007. ADDRESSES: Submit written comments to Sharron L. Gebhardt, Lead Regulatory Specialist, Minerals Management Service, Minerals Revenue Management, P.O. Box 25165, MS 302B2, Denver, Colorado 80225. If you use an overnight courier service or wish to hand-carry your comments, our courier address is Building 85, Room A–614, Denver Federal Center, West 6th Ave. and Kipling Blvd., Denver, Colorado 80225. You may also e-mail your comments to us at mrm.comments@mms.gov. Include the title of the information collection and the OMB control number in the ‘‘Attention’’ line of your comment. Also include your name and return address. If you do not receive a confirmation that we have received your e-mail, contact Ms. Gebhardt at (303) 231–3211. E:\FR\FM\07MRN1.SGM 07MRN1
