Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 179 / Monday, September 15, 2008 / Notices T. 3 N., R. 15 E., Sec. 16, that portion lying southwesterly of the Cadiz Dunes Wilderness Area. T. 5 N., R. 15 E., Sec. 16, all; Sec. 36, all. mstockstill on PROD1PC66 with NOTICES Northern Expansion Area T. 7 N., R. 7 E., Sec. 36, all. The areas described aggregate 7,779 acres, more or less. In the event that these non-federally owned lands return to public ownership in the future, they would be subject to the terms and conditions described above in ‘‘1. Federally owned surface and mineral estate.’’ The purpose of the proposed legislative withdrawal is to withdraw and reserve the lands for use as a military training range, involving livefire exercises, necessary for national security. The legislative withdrawal would provide sufficient area for realistic integrated training to a Marine Expeditionary Brigade (MEB) sized Marine Air Ground Task Force, the USMC’s premier force for responding to smaller scale contingencies. Effective training of MEBs is critical to ensuring the full spectrum of military operations. The withdrawal would be established by an Act of Congress, and approved by the President. The duration of the legislative withdrawal would be determined by Congress. The Department of the Navy has indicated that the use of a right-of-way or cooperative agreement would not provide adequate authorization for safety and control of access for the use of these lands due to the broad scope of military training exercises. The USMC analyzed alternative sites in three regions of the United States (i.e., Middle Atlantic Coast—North Carolina and Virginia; Gulf of Mexico— Florida and Louisiana; and Southwest— California and Arizona). The USMC concluded that expanding the USMC’s MCAGCC, located in Twentynine Palms, California was the only reasonable and feasible option. The lands hereinabove described, have been selected by the USMC for the proposed legislative withdrawal, because they are located adjacent to the existing exterior boundaries of the USMC’s MCAGCC, located in Twentynine Palms, California. The application and the records relating to the application can be examined by interested persons at the BLM Barstow Field Office, 2601 Barstow Road, Barstow, California 92311. On or before December 15, 2008, all persons who wish to submit comments, suggestions, or objections in connection VerDate Aug<31>2005 20:22 Sep 12, 2008 Jkt 214001 with the proposed legislative withdrawal may present their views in writing to the BLM, Field Manager, Barstow Field Office, 2601 Barstow Road, Barstow, California 92311.

This withdrawal proposal will be processed in accordance with the regulations set forth in 43 CFR part 2300. Until September 15, 2010, the lands will be segregated as specified above unless the withdrawal application is denied or canceled or the withdrawal is approved prior to that date. Land uses currently authorized or permitted may continue during the segregation period. If the proposed legislative withdrawal has been submitted to Congress but not enacted into law by the end of the 2year segregation period, consideration will be given to entertaining an application for a temporary withdrawal in aid of pending legislation. During the segregation period, BLM may, after consulting with the USMC, allow uses of a temporary nature that are compatible with the military purposes for which the land is being withdrawn.
