The public land is located in Yreka, California and will be offered for sale utilizing non-competitive (direct sale) procedures in Siskiyou County. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Mount Diablo Meridian, California T. 45 N., R. 7 W., Section 22, lot 13. The area described contains 0.07 acres more or less in Siskiyou County. This parcel of public land is proposed for sale to Tom and Kris McCullough, the adjacent landowners, at not less than appraised fair market value (FMV) as determined by the authorized officer after appraisal. As stated, the public land is proposed for sale subject to the applicable provisions of sections 203 and 209 of the FLPMA, as well as regulations at 43 CFR Parts 2710 and 2720. The sale disposal is carried out in accordance with section 205 of the Federal Land Transaction Facilitation Act of July 25, 2000 (FLTFA) (43 U.S.C. 2304), in which the proceeds from the sale of the lands will be deposited into the Federal Land Disposal account. Consistent with FLPMA section 203, the tract of public land may be sold as a result of approved land use planning if the sale of the tract meets the disposal criteria. The subject parcel is identified as suitable for disposal in the BLM Redding Resource Management Plan (RMP) approved July 27, 1993. The identified land is not needed for any Federal purpose. This sale also meets the criteria found in Title 43 CFR 2710.0–3(a)(2) which states ‘‘Disposal of such tract shall serve important public objectives, including but not limited to, expansion of communities and economic development which cannot be achieved prudently or feasibly on lands other that public lands and which outweigh other public objectives and values, including, but not limited to recreation and scenic values, which would be served by maintaining such tract in Federal ownership.’’ The disposal (sale) of lands also meets the criteria found under 43 CFR 2710.0– 3(a)(3) where ‘‘such a tract, because of its location or other characteristics is difficult and uneconomic to manage as part of the public lands, and is not suitable for management by another Federal department or agency’’. BLM regulations at 43 CFR 2711.3– 3(a) provide: ‘‘Direct sales (without competition) may be utilized, when in PO 00000 Frm 00029 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 60027 the opinion of the authorized officer, a competitive sale is not appropriate and the public interest would best be served by a direct sale’’. The BLM Redding Field Manager has determined that a non-competitive (direct sale) will be in the best interest of the public in facilitating overall administration of public lands. The FLPMA authorized the use of direct sale of public lands to recognize public policies by giving preference to users such as the adjoining landowners. The BLM parcel is a small uneconomic remnant that is surrounded by private land owned by the McCulloughs in a developing subdivision. The potential buyer of the parcel will make application under section 209 of the Federal Land Policy and Management Act of October 21, 1976, to purchase the mineral estate along with the surface. Conveyance of the available mineral interests pursuant to Section 209 of the FLPMA would occur simultaneously with the sale of the land. The mineral interests being offered for conveyance have no known mineral value. Acceptance of a direct sale offer will constitute an application for conveyance of those mineral interests. The applicant will be required to pay a $50.00 nonreturnable filing fee for conveyance of the available mineral interests. The patent, if issued, will be subject to the following terms, conditions and reservations: A reservation to the United States for ditches and canals constructed by the authority of the United States, Act of August 30, 1890 (43 U.S.C. 945). No representation, warranty or covenant of any kind, express or implied, will be given or made by the United States, its officers or employees, as to access to or from the above described parcel of land, the title to the land, whether or to what extent the land may be developed, its physical condition or its past, present or potential uses, and the conveyance of any such parcel will not be on a contingency basis. It is the buyer’s responsibility to be aware of all applicable Federal, State, any 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.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background The Department of Labor, as part of its continuing effort to reduce paperwork and respondent (i.e., employer) burden, conducts a preclearance consultation program to provide the public with an opportunity to comment on proposed and continuing information collection requirements in accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A)). This program ensures that information is in the desired format, reporting burden (time and costs) is minimal, collection instruments are clearly understood, and OSHA’s estimate of the information collection burden is accurate. The Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 (the OSH Act) (29 U.S.C. 651, et seq.) authorizes information collection by employers as necessary or appropriate for enforcement of the OSH Act and requires that OSHA obtain such information with minimum burden upon employers, especially those operating small businesses, and to reduce to the maximum extent feasible unnecessary duplication of efforts in obtaining information (29 U.S.C. 657). The OSH Act and 29 CFR part 1904 prescribe that certain employers maintain records of work-related injuries and illnesses. The injury and illness records are intended to have multiple purposes. One purpose is to provide data needed by OSHA to carry out enforcement and intervention E:\FR\FM\23OCN1.SGM 23OCN1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The public land is located in Yreka, 
California and will be offered for sale utilizing non-competitive 
(direct sale) procedures in Siskiyou County.

Mount Diablo Meridian, California

T. 45 N., R. 7 W.,
    Section 22, lot 13.

    The area described contains 0.07 acres more or less in Siskiyou 
County.

    This parcel of public land is proposed for sale to Tom and Kris 
McCullough, the adjacent landowners, at not less than appraised fair 
market value (FMV) as determined by the authorized officer after 
appraisal.
    As stated, the public land is proposed for sale subject to the 
applicable provisions of sections 203 and 209 of the FLPMA, as well as 
regulations at 43 CFR Parts 2710 and 2720. The sale disposal is carried 
out in accordance with section 205 of the Federal Land Transaction 
Facilitation Act of July 25, 2000 (FLTFA) (43 U.S.C. 2304), in which 
the proceeds from the sale of the lands will be deposited into the 
Federal Land Disposal account.
    Consistent with FLPMA section 203, the tract of public land may be 
sold as a result of approved land use planning if the sale of the tract 
meets the disposal criteria.
    The subject parcel is identified as suitable for disposal in the 
BLM Redding Resource Management Plan (RMP) approved July 27, 1993. The 
identified land is not needed for any Federal purpose.
    This sale also meets the criteria found in Title 43 CFR 2710.0-
3(a)(2) which states ``Disposal of such tract shall serve important 
public objectives, including but not limited to, expansion of 
communities and economic development which cannot be achieved prudently 
or feasibly on lands other that public lands and which outweigh other 
public objectives and values, including, but not limited to recreation 
and scenic values, which would be served by maintaining such tract in 
Federal ownership.''
    The disposal (sale) of lands also meets the criteria found under 43 
CFR 2710.0-3(a)(3) where ``such a tract, because of its location or 
other characteristics is difficult and uneconomic to manage as part of 
the public lands, and is not suitable for management by another Federal 
department or agency''.
    BLM regulations at 43 CFR 2711.3-3(a) provide: ``Direct sales 
(without competition) may be utilized, when in the opinion of the 
authorized officer, a competitive sale is not appropriate and the 
public interest would best be served by a direct sale''.
    The BLM Redding Field Manager has determined that a non-competitive 
(direct sale) will be in the best interest of the public in 
facilitating overall administration of public lands. The FLPMA 
authorized the use of direct sale of public lands to recognize public 
policies by giving preference to users such as the adjoining 
landowners. The BLM parcel is a small uneconomic remnant that is 
surrounded by private land owned by the McCulloughs in a developing 
subdivision.
    The potential buyer of the parcel will make application under 
section 209 of the Federal Land Policy and Management Act of October 
21, 1976, to purchase the mineral estate along with the surface.
    Conveyance of the available mineral interests pursuant to Section 
209 of the FLPMA would occur simultaneously with the sale of the land. 
The mineral interests being offered for conveyance have no known 
mineral value. Acceptance of a direct sale offer will constitute an 
application for conveyance of those mineral interests. The applicant 
will be required to pay a $50.00 non-returnable filing fee for 
conveyance of the available mineral interests.
    The patent, if issued, will be subject to the following terms, 
conditions and reservations: A reservation to the United States for 
ditches and canals constructed by the authority of the United States, 
Act of August 30, 1890 (43 U.S.C. 945).
    No representation, warranty or covenant of any kind, express or 
implied, will be given or made by the United States, its officers or 
employees, as to access to or from the above described parcel of land, 
the title to the land, whether or to what extent the land may be 
developed, its physical condition or its past, present or potential 
uses, and the conveyance of any such parcel will not be on a 
contingency basis. It is the buyer's responsibility to be aware of all 
applicable Federal, State, any 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 environmental assessment and approved appraisal report covering 
the proposed sale are available for review at
