SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In accordance with the Federal Land Policy and Management Act of 1976 (FLPMA, 43 U.S.C. 1701 et seq.), the BLM prepared the NCA RMP to address management of approximately 484,000 acres of public land along 81 miles of the Snake River. The NCA was established on August 4, 1993, by Public Law 103–64 for the conservation, protection, and enhancement of the natural and environmental resources and values associated with the area, including raptor populations and habitats. The NCA RMP replaces portions of the 1983 Kuna Management Framework Plan (MFP), 1983 Bruneau MFP, 1987 Jarbidge RMP, 1988 Cascade RMP, and 1999 Owyhee RMP that affect PO 00000 Frm 00067 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 the NCA, and replaces the 1996 Snake River Birds of Prey NCA Management Plan.

In addition, the area known as Pasture 8B of the Battle Creek Allotment is no longer listed as closed to grazing, but may be grazed at BLM’s discretion, under contract or as temporary non-renewable forage, for the purpose of meeting specific NCA resource management objectives, including weed reduction, hazardous fuels management, and ecological improvement. These minor modifications and clarifications did not result in substantial changes to the proposed action. All protests received by the BLM regarding the RMP have been addressed. No inconsistencies with State or local plans, policies, or programs were identified during the Governor’s consistency review of the proposed RMP. Thomas H.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In accordance with the Federal Land Policy 
and Management Act of 1976 (FLPMA, 43 U.S.C. 1701 et seq.), the BLM 
prepared the NCA RMP to address management of approximately 484,000 
acres of public land along 81 miles of the Snake River. The NCA was 
established on August 4, 1993, by Public Law 103-64 for the 
conservation, protection, and enhancement of the natural and 
environmental resources and values associated with the area, including 
raptor populations and habitats. The NCA RMP replaces portions of the 
1983 Kuna Management Framework Plan (MFP), 1983 Bruneau MFP, 1987 
Jarbidge RMP, 1988 Cascade RMP, and 1999 Owyhee RMP that affect the 
NCA, and replaces the 1996 Snake River Birds of Prey NCA Management 
Plan.
    The NCA RMP enhances the protection of remaining shrub communities 
through aggressive wildfire suppression; the restoration of up to 
130,000 acres of shrub habitat; the completion of up to 100,000 acres 
of fuels management projects; the modification of Idaho Army National 
Guard training activities by limiting vehicle maneuver training to non-
shrub communities, and providing 4,100 acres of additional maneuver 
training area; and the identification of area designations (i.e., 
livestock grazing, vehicle use, right-of-way avoidance, and utility 
corridors). The approved RMP is the same as Alternative D displayed in

modifications and clarifications resulting from changes in the status 
of federally listed threatened and endangered species. In addition, the

listed as closed to grazing, but may be grazed at BLM's discretion, 
under contract or as temporary non-renewable forage, for the purpose of 
meeting specific NCA resource management objectives, including weed 
reduction, hazardous fuels management, and ecological improvement. 
These minor modifications and clarifications did not result in 
substantial changes to the proposed action.
    All protests received by the BLM regarding the RMP have been 
addressed. No inconsistencies with State or local plans, policies, or 
programs were identified during the Governor's consistency review of 
the proposed RMP.
