DATES: The BLM Planning Regulations (43 CFR 1610.5–2) state that any person who participated in the planning process, and has an interest which is or may be adversely affected, may protest the BLM’s approval or amendment of a RMP. You may file a protest within 30 days of the date that the Environmental Protection Agency publishes their Notice of Availability in the Federal Register. Instructions for filing of protests are described in the Dear Reader letter in the front of the Special Status Species Proposed RMPA/Final EIS and in the Supplementary Information section of this notice. ADDRESSES: For additional information on how to file a protest, refer to the Supplementary Information section below. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Howard Parman, BLM, Pecos District Office, 2909 West Second Street, Roswell, New Mexico 88201. To receive a copy of the document, contact the BLM at the above address or call 505– 627–0272 during regular business hours (8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.), Monday through Friday, except holidays. The planning area for the Special Status Species Proposed RMPA/Final EIS, which includes approximately 850,000 acres of BLM-administered public lands and 1.15 million acres of Federal minerals, is located in Chaves, Eddy, Lea, and Roosevelt Counties, New Mexico. A map of the planning area is available on the BLM New Mexico Web site (http://www.nm.blm.gov). The BLMadministered public lands within the planning area are currently managed under interim management guidelines issued on August 5, 2004, in accordance with the decisions in the 1988 Carlsbad RMP, as amended, and the 1997 Roswell RMP. The BLM will continue to manage these lands in accordance with the interim management guidelines until the RMPA is completed and a Record of Decision is signed. The purpose of the Proposed RMPA/ Final EIS is to amend the existing RMPs, to protect and enhance habitat for the lesser prairie chicken and sand dune lizard while allowing other uses to continue. The Proposed RMPA/Final EIS documents the direct, indirect, and cumulative environmental impacts of six alternatives for BLM-administered public lands within the planning area. Issues related to possible management direction and planning decisions (not in priority order) include: development of energy resources, special management SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: PO 00000 Frm 00062 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 62265 designation, special status species management, livestock grazing, and offhighway vehicle designations. The Draft RMPA/EIS was released to the public for a 90-day comment period on October 20, 2006. The BLM hosted public meetings in Roswell, Carlsbad, Artesia, and Hobbs, New Mexico, and Midland, Texas, to answer questions about the document, as well as to solicit comments from the public. Public comments on the Draft RMPA/EIS are on file and available for public review at the address listed above. Six alternatives were identified in the Draft RMPA/EIS: • The No Action Alternative: represents the continuation of existing management plans, policies, and decisions as established by the current RMPs. • Alternative A: Adopts the portions of the Conservation Strategy developed by the Southeast New Mexico Lesser Prairie Chicken Working Group that applies to public lands and Federal minerals. • Alternative B (BLM’s Preferred Alternative): Represents the Conservation Strategy and adds emphasis to sand dune lizard habitat and surface reclamation. • Alternative C: Represents the continuation of Interim Management, originally put in place by the BLM (August 2004) to preserve management options in the Planning Area. • Alternative D: Focuses management efforts on preserving occupied habitat. • Alternative E: Focuses management efforts of preserving lesser prairiechicken habitat through the designation of an area of critical environmental concern. In the Proposed RMPA/Final EIS, the BLM has selected Alternative B, the Preferred Alternative in the Draft RMPA, as its Proposed Plan. Comments on the Draft RMPA/EIS received from the public and internal BLM review comments were incorporated into the Proposed Plan. Public comments resulted in the addition of clarifying text, but did not significantly change the proposed land use decisions in the Preferred Alternative. The Proposed Plan represents the portions of the strategy developed by the Southeast New Mexico Lesser Prairie Chicken Working Group that apply to public lands and Federal minerals, and adds emphasis to sand dune lizard habitat and surface reclamation. Copies of the Special Status Species Proposed RMPA/ Final EIS have been sent to affected Federal, State, and local government agencies and to interested parties. A copy of the Special Status Species Proposed RMPA/Final EIS is available E:\FR\FM\02NON1.SGM 02NON1
