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 May 2, 2005, the BLM published a Notice of Intent (NOI) to prepare an EIS for the Eagle Butte West 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 October 20, 2006. A 60-day comment period on the Draft EIS commenced with publication of the EPA’s notice of availability and ended on December 19, 2006. The BLM published a Notice of Availability and Notice of Public Hearing in the Federal Register on October 20, 2006. The BLM’s Federal Register notice announced the date and time of a public hearing, which was held on November 14, 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 DEIS comment period, the BLM received eight written comments, which are included, with BLM’s responses, in an appendix to the FEIS. The FEIS analyzes leasing the abovedescribed 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 it was applied for. As part of the coal leasing process, the BLM identified a different tract configuration that would potentially avoid bypassing coal or prompt competitive interest in the unleased Federal coal in this area. The tract configuration that the BLM has identified is described and analyzed as a separate alternative in the FEIS. Under this alternative, 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 30-day review period for the FEIS. Comments VerDate Aug<31>2005 00:43 Aug 31, 2007 Jkt 211001 received on the FEIS will be considered during preparation of the ROD. Robert A. Bennett, State Director. [FR Doc.
