We have explained above that this document is an internal BLM action which only affects how the BLM conducts its business under the NEPA. This handbook is not a rulemaking; and therefore, not subject to Executive Order 13211. Actions To Expedite Energy-Related Projects Executive Order 13212 of May 18, 2001, requires agencies to expedite energy-related projects by streamlining internal processes while maintaining safety, public health, and environmental protections. Today’s publication is in conformance with this requirement as it promotes existing process streamlining requirements and revises the text to emphasize this concept. Government Actions and Interference With Constitutionally Protected Property Rights In accordance with Executive Order 12630 (March 15, 1988) and Part 318 of the Departmental Manual, the BLM has reviewed today’s notice to determine whether it would interfere with constitutionally protected property rights. Again, we believe that as internal instructions to the BLM on implementation of the NEPA, this publication would not cause such interference. James Caswell, Director, Bureau of Land Management.
