ACTION: Notice of realty action. AGENCY: SUMMARY: The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has examined and determined that 50 acres of public land (2 parcels) located in Grand County, Utah are suitable for disposal by direct (non-competitive) sale to the Palladium Foundation LLC, the adjacent landowner, at no less than the appraised fair market value, pursuant to Sections 203 and 209 of the Federal Land Policy and Management Act of 1976, as amended. The parcels are isolated from other public lands by adjacent private land and topography and are difficult to manage as part of the public lands. It has been determined that resource values will not be affected by the disposal of the two parcels as mitigated in the patent. The non-competitive sale is justified by lack of physical access to the lands by anyone other than the adjacent landowner. Disposal of the parcels will resolve historic use of the lands for livestock grazing and hay production which have been authorized by BLM under land use permit UTU– 64085 since 1989. The permit will be terminated at the time of sale. DATES: Interested parties may submit comments to the BLM Moab Field Office Manager, at the address below. Comments must be received no later than June 4, 2007. Only written comments will be accepted. ADDRESSES: Address all written comments concerning this notice to the BLM Moab Field Manager, 82 East Dogwood Avenue, Moab, Utah 84532.

The lands will be sold at no less than the fair market value established by appraisal at $50,000 by a certified appraiser. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Salt Lake Meridian, Utah T. 21 S., R. 24 E., Sec. 27, E1⁄2NW1⁄4SE1⁄4, and NE1⁄4SW1⁄4SE1⁄4; Sec. 34, NE1⁄4NE1⁄4NE1⁄4NE1⁄4; sec. 35, NE1⁄4NW1⁄4NW1⁄4, N1⁄2NW1⁄4NW1⁄4NW1⁄4, and SE1⁄4NW1⁄4NW1⁄4NW1⁄4. The areas described contain 50 acres, more or less, in Grand County. The sale meets the disposal criteria in Section 203 (a)(1) of FLPMA and 43 CFR 2710.0–3 (a)(3) because the location and topography of the parcels make them difficult and uneconomic to manage as part of the public lands and they are not suitable for management by another Federal department or agency. The sale meets the criteria for direct sale under 43 CFR 2711.3–3 (a)(3, 4, and 5) based on the fact that the public lands have been an integral part of agricultural use on the adjoining private land since the 1980s, they are isolated from other public lands by surrounding private ownership and topography, and the sale to the adjacent private owner would resolve a long-term occupancy of the public lands. The parcels were identified for disposal in the March 10, 1995, amendment to the BLM Grand Resource Area Resource Management Plan approved in July 1985, and therefore meet the disposal qualification of the Federal Land Transaction Facilitation Act of July 25, 2000 (FLTFA) (43 U.S.C. 2304). Proceeds from the sale will be deposited in the Federal Land Disposal Account for Utah pursuant to FLTFA. The land will not be offered for sale until at least 60 days after the date of publication of this notice in the Federal Register. This land is being offered as a direct non-competitive sale to the adjacent landowner. The parcels are not required for any Federal purpose or program. Sale of the parcels is consistent with current BLM land use planning and would be in the public interest. The terms and conditions applicable to the sale are: 1. All valid existing rights of record, including those documented on the official public land records at the time of sale. 2. A reservation to the United States for rights-of-way for ditches or canals under the Act of August 20, 1890 (26 Stat. 391; 43 U.S.C. 945).

It is the buyer’s responsibility to be aware of all applicable local government policies and regulations that would affect the subject lands. It is also the buyer’s responsibility to be aware of existing or prospective uses of nearby properties. 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. The mineral interests have been determined to have no known mineral value pursuant to 43 CFR 2720.2(a) and will be conveyed simultaneously with the sale of the land. Acceptance of a sale offer will constitute an application for conveyance of the mineral interests, and the purchaser will be required to pay a $50 non-refundable filing fee for conveyance of the mineral interests. Upon publication of this notice in the Federal Register, the land described above will be segregated from appropriation under the public land laws, including the general mining laws. The segregation will end upon issuance of patent or 2 years from the date of publication, whichever occurs first.

ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: SUMMARY: This notice consolidates and clarifies current stay limits on occupancy and/or property on public lands managed by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) in Montana, North Dakota and South Dakota. Existing limits vary among field offices and states. This notice will establish stay limits on all public lands managed by the BLM as required by 43 CFR 8365 1– 2. The proposed stay limits are necessary to protect the natural resources, provide public health, and to provide orderly, equal and consistent use for the public. These proposed stay limits will supersede all existing camping stay limits for BLM administered public lands in Montana, North Dakota & South Dakota published previously.

Where possible, your comments should reference the specific section or paragraph of the proposal that you are addressing. BLM may not necessarily consider or include in the Administrative Record for the final comments that BLM receives after the close of the comment period (see DATES) or comments delivered to an address other than those listed above (see ADDRESSES). The BLM will make your comments, including your name and address, available for public review at the Montana State Office address listed in ADDRESSES above during regular business hours (8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, accept Federal holidays). Before including your address, phone number, e-mail address, or other personal identifying information in your comment, you should be aware that your entire comment—including your personal identifying information—may be made publicly available at any time. While you can ask us in your comment to withhold your personal identifying information from public review, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so. The notice will apply to the public lands within the States of Montana, North Dakota and South Dakota. The significant change would be a limit of 14 days within a 30 day period as opposed to the existing 28 day period. This reflects recent changes made by other land management agencies and prevents 2 parties from occupying the same site indefinitely by simply moving every 14 days. The proposed camping limits are being established in order to protect natural resources on public lands and provide fair and consistent use for all public land users. The action will prevent situations where users on public land occupy a site for long periods of time. Long tenure occupancies can result in negative impacts to the surrounding area such as: vegetation damage, erosion, and sanitation problems. Long tenure occupancies prevent other public land users from using popular sites and can promote abandonment of personal property. BLM’s objective is to provide a quality recreation experience for all users with minimal conflict, to maintain E:\FR\FM\20APN1.SGM 20APN1

SUMMARY: The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has examined and

It has been determined that resource values will not be affected by the 
disposal of the two parcels as mitigated in the patent. The non-
competitive sale is justified by lack of physical access to the lands 
by anyone other than the adjacent landowner. Disposal of the parcels 
will resolve historic use of the lands for livestock grazing and hay 
production which have been authorized by BLM under land use permit UTU-
64085 since 1989. The permit will be terminated at the time of sale.
