SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On January 26, 2006, the State of Alaska (State) filed two applications for Recordable Disclaimers of Interest pursuant to Section 315 of the Federal Land Policy and Management Act and the regulations contained in 43 CFR Subpart 1864 for those lands underlying Little Scottie Creek (FF–94671) and Scottie Creek (FF–94672). A Recordable Disclaimer of Interest, if issued, will confirm the United States has no valid interest in the subject lands. The notice is intended to notify the public of the pending applications and the State’s grounds for supporting them. The State asserts that Little Scottie Creek and Scottie Creek are navigable and unreserved; therefore, under the Equal Footing Doctrine and Submerged Lands Act of 1953, ownership of these lands automatically passed from the United States to the State at the time of statehood in 1959. The State did not identify any known adverse claimant or occupant of the affected lands. A portion of the applied for lands are within the exterior boundary of the Tetlin National Wildlife Refuge, administered by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. A final decision on the merits of the applications will not be made before November 20, 2007. During the ninety (90) day notice period, interested parties may comment upon the State’s applications for Little Scottie Creek (FF– 94671) and Scottie Creek (FF–94672) and supporting evidence. Interested parties may also comment on the evidence presented in the BLM Draft Summary Reports within sixty (60) days of the date of this notice. The State’s applications and the BLM Draft Summary Reports will be posted on the BLM-Alaska Web site: http:// www.blm.gov/ak/ak930/rdi/index.html. Comments, including names and street addresses of the commenters, will be available for public review at the Alaska State Office (see address above), during regular business hours 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:26 Aug 21, 2007 Jkt 211001 except Federal holidays.
