Notice of Public Meeting, Alaska Resource Advisory Council, 18489 [E7-6930]

Download as PDF rmajette on PROD1PC67 with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 70 / Thursday, April 12, 2007 / Notices Secretary of the Interior. WDEQ has entered into a cooperative agreement with the Secretary of the Interior to regulate surface coal mining operations on Federal and non-Federal lands within the State of Wyoming. WSPO coordinates planning within state agencies and facilitates collaboration among the agencies, the Federal Government, other states, the private sector, and the general public. On February 1, 2005, the BLM published its Notice of Intent (NOI) to prepare an EIS for the Maysdorf coal lease application in the Federal Register. A notice announcing the availability of the Draft EIS was published in the Federal Register by the EPA on May 26, 2006. A 60-day comment period on the Draft EIS commenced with publication of the EPA’s notice of availability and ended on July 25, 2006. The BLM published a Notice of Availability and Notice of Public Hearing in the Federal Register on May 26, 2006. The BLM’s Federal Register notice announced the date and time of a public hearing, which was held on June 13, 2006, in Gillette, Wyoming. The purpose of the hearing was to solicit comments on the DEIS, fair market value, and the maximum economic recovery of the Federal coal. During the review and comment period, the BLM received written comments from five entities, which are included, with agency responses, in an appendix to the FEIS. The FEIS analyzes leasing the above described tract as applied for as a separate Proposed Action. Under this alternative, a competitive sale would be held and a lease issued for Federal coal in the tract as applied for by Cordero. As part of the coal leasing process, BLM identified different tract configurations that would potentially avoid bypassing coal or prompt competitive interest in the unleased Federal coal in this area. The tract configurations that BLM has identified are described and analyzed as separate alternatives in the FEIS. Under these alternatives, a competitive sale would be held and a lease issued for Federal coal lands included in a tract modified by the BLM. The FEIS also analyzes the alternative of rejecting the application to lease Federal coal as the No Action Alternative. The Proposed Action and alternatives being considered in the FEIS are in conformance with the ‘‘Approved Resource Management Plan for Public Lands Administered by the Bureau of Land Management Buffalo Field Office’’ (April 2001). A Record of Decision (ROD) will be prepared after the close of the review period for the FEIS.
