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.

Abstract: The Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) Lands Act, as amended (43 U.S.C. 1331 et seq. and 43 U.S.C. 1801 et seq.), authorizes the Secretary of the Interior to prescribe rules and regulations to administer leasing of the OCS. Such rules and regulations will apply to all operations conducted under a lease. Operations on the OCS must preserve, protect, and develop oil and natural gas resources in a manner that is consistent with the need to make such resources available to meet the Nation’s energy needs as rapidly as possible; to balance orderly energy resource development with protection of human, marine, and coastal environments; to ensure the public a fair and equitable return on the resources of the OCS; and to preserve and maintain free enterprise competition. Section 1332(6) states that ‘‘operations in the [O]uter Continental Shelf should be conducted in a safe manner by well trained personnel using technology, precautions, and other techniques sufficient to prevent or minimize the likelihood of blowouts, loss of well control, fires, spillages, physical obstructions to other users of the waters or subsoil and seabed, or other occurrences which may cause damage to the environment or to property or endanger life or health.’’ The Independent Offices Appropriations Act (31 U.S.C. 9701), the Omnibus Appropriations Bill (Pub. L. 104–133, 110 Stat. 1321, April 26, 1996), and Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Circular A–25, authorize Federal agencies to recover the full cost of services that confer special benefits. Under the Department of the Interior’s (DOI) implementing policy, the Minerals Management Service (MMS) is required to charge fees for services that provide special benefits or privileges to an identifiable non-Federal recipient above and beyond those which accrue to the public at large. Regulations implementing these responsibilities are under 30 CFR part 250, subpart A, General. This request also covers the related Notices to Lessees and Operators (NTLs) that MMS issues to clarify and provide additional guidance on some aspects of our regulations. Responses are mandatory. No questions of a ‘‘sensitive’’ nature are asked. We protect proprietary information according to the Freedom of Information Act (5 U.S.C. 552) and its implementing regulations (43 CFR part 2), and 30 CFR 250.197, ‘‘Data and E:\FR\FM\31AUN1.SGM 31AUN1
