SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 5 CFR 1320.12(a) requires that we provide a 60-day notice in the Federal Register concerning a collection of information to solicit comments on: (a) Whether the collection of information is necessary for the proper functioning of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (b) The accuracy of our estimates of the information collection burden, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions we use; (c) Ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information collected; and (d) Ways to minimize the information collection burden on those who are to respond, including the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology. Title XI of the Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act of December 2, 1980, requires that the Departments of Agriculture, Interior, and Transportation use a consolidated form in connection with rights-of-way for transportation and utility. The Federal Land Policy and Management Act of 1976, the Mineral Leasing Act, and the regulations at 43 CFR parts 2800 and 2880 authorize the BLM to use Form 299. The BLM will use Form 299 to collect information to: (1) Determine whether the applicant qualifies for a right-of-way grant; mstockstill on PROD1PC66 with NOTICES DATES: VerDate Aug<31>2005 18:33 Mar 20, 2008 Jkt 214001 (2) Identify and communicate with the applicant on its right-of-way application; (3) Identify the project location; (4) Determine and compare existing and proposed land uses; and (5) Determine if alternate routes and modes are available to the applicant on the right-of-way application. If you do not provide this information, the BLM would not be able to properly administer its right-of-way program. Based upon the BLM’s experience and recent tabulations of activity, we process approximately 8,340 applications each year. The public reporting information collection burden takes 25 hours to complete. The estimated number of responses per year is 8,340 and the annual information burden is 208,500 hours. Any member of the public may request and obtain, without charge, a copy of Form 299 by contacting the person identified under FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT. The BLM will summarize all responses to this notice and include them in the request for OMB approval. All comments will become a matter of public record. Dated: March 17, 2008.

ADDRESSES: Copies of the Ring of Fire RMP/ROD are available upon request from the Field Manager, Anchorage Field Office, Bureau of Land Management, 6881 Elmore Road, Anchorage, AK 99507, or via the Internet at http://www.blm.gov/.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Ring of Fire RMP was developed with broad public participation through a threeyear collaborative planning process. This RMP/ROD addresses management of approximately 1.3 million acres of BLM-administered public lands and mineral estate in the planning area. The Ring of Fire RMP/ROD is designed to achieve or maintain desired future conditions developed through the planning process. It includes a series of management actions to meet the desired resource conditions for upland and riparian vegetation, wildlife habitats, cultural and visual resources, and recreation. The approved Ring of Fire RMP is the same as Alternative D in the Ring of Fire Proposed RMP/Final EIS, published in July 2006, with two exceptions: 1. In response to a protest from the Alaska Coalition/American Rivers, the BLM will defer Wild and Scenic River suitability determinations for segments identified in the RMP as ‘‘Eligible.’’ The BLM will manage these rivers in a manner that maintains or enhances the values that supported the rivers’ eligibility until land ownership in the planning area is finalized. At that time, suitability determinations will be made through an amendment to the Ring of Fire RMP. 2. In response to a protest received from Lynn Canal Conservation, Inc., the BLM will defer the final determination on the establishment of an Area of Critical Environmental Concern (ACEC) for the Haines Block lands. The BLM will reconsider the application of the Importance Criteria found in BLM Manual 1613 and will provide an additional 60-day comment period at that time to gather public input on the E:\FR\FM\21MRN1.SGM 21MRN1
