Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 193 / Friday, October 5, 2007 / Notices government and the states; or on the distribution of power and responsibilities among the various levels of government. The shooting closure affects land in only one state, Nevada. Therefore, BLM has determined that the shooting closure does not have sufficient Federalism implications to warrant preparation of a Federalism Assessment. Executive Order 12988, Civil Justice Reform Under Executive Order 12988, the Office of the Solicitor has determined that the shooting closure will not unduly burden the judicial system and that the requirements of sections 3(a) and 3(b)(2) of the Order are met. The shooting closure includes rules of conduct and prohibited acts, but they are straightforward and not confusing, and their enforcement should not unreasonably burden the United States Magistrate who will try any persons cited for violating them. Executive Order 13175, Consultation and Coordination With Indian Tribal Governments In accordance with Executive Order 13175, the BLM has found that this shooting closure does not include policies having Tribal implications. The shooting closure does not affect lands held for the benefit of Indians, Aleuts or Eskimos. Paperwork Reduction Action The shooting closure does not contain information collection requirements that the Office of Management and Budget must approve under the paperwork reduction Act, 44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq. Rules requiring special recreation permits for certain recreational users will involve collection of information contained on BLM Special recreation Permit Form 2930–1. Authority: 43 CFR 8364.1.
