These copies should be forwarded to the DEMD offices in Lakewood, Colorado, to the attention of the Energy and Mineral Development Program. All products generated by EMDP studies may be subject to release under FOIA, as noted above. Products include all reports and technical data obtained during the study such as geophysical data, geochemical analyses, core data, lithologic logs, assay data of samples tested, results of special tests, maps and cross sections, status reports and the final report. J. Requests for Technical Assistance The DEMD staff may provide technical consultation (i.e., work directly with tribal staff on a proposed project), provide support documentation and data, provide written language on specialized sections of the proposal and suggest ways a tribe may obtain other assistance, such as from a company or consultant specializing in a particular area of expertise. However, the tribe is responsible for preparing the executive summary, justification and scope of work for their proposal. The tribe must notify DEMD in writing that they require assistance, and DEMD will then appoint staff to provide the requested assistance. The tribe’s request must clearly specify the type of technical assistance desired. Requests for technical assistance should be submitted by the deadline stated in the DATES section for such requests to allow DEMD time to provide the appropriate assistance. Tribes not seeking technical assistance should attempt to submit their EMDP proposals well in advance of the deadline to allow DEMD time to review the proposals for possible deficiencies and allow ample time to contact the tribe with requests for revisions to the initial submission.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In accordance with the FLPMA (43 U.S.C. 1701), as amended; the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) (42 U.S.C. 4321), as amended; and the Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) regulations (40 CFR parts 1500–1508); the Department of the Interior, Bureau of Land Management (BLM), in cooperation with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) intends to prepare a MFP amendment and associated environmental impact statement (EIS), to consider the location and construction of a replacement airport for the Friedman Memorial Airport (SUN) and potential disposal of public land in Blaine County, Idaho. The FAA has been identified as the lead agency with the BLM as a cooperating agency; one of the alternative sites occurs wholly on public land administered by the BLM. The EIS will analyze the potential environmental impacts of the construction and operation of an airport facility, associated utility and access rights-ofway, protection of easement interests, as well as the consideration of the potential disposal of a parcel of public land totaling 2480 acres either by sale or land exchange. This notice initiates the public scoping process regarding the FOR FUTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: PO 00000 Frm 00057 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 notice of realty action and the proposed MFP amendment. The sponsor of the project, Friedman Memorial Airport Authority (Airport Authority), has requested funding and approval from the FAA to construct and operate a replacement airport for the Friedman Memorial Airport in Blaine County, Idaho. The FAA published a Notice of Intent to Prepare an EIS for a Replacement Airport near Hailey, Idaho, in the Federal Register on November 1, 2007 (Vol. 72, No. 211, page 61945) in response to the Airport Authority’s application. As a result of initial studies by the FAA the Airport Authority has now submitted a proposal to the BLM to acquire approximately 2480 acres of public land by either sale or inclusion of the public land within a land exchange, which would include the State of Idaho as a party, if the alternative site located wholly of public land in conjunction with the aforementioned project is determined by the EIS to be the preferred location for the replacement airport. The following described public land in Blaine County, Idaho, is being considered for disposal out of Federal ownership in conjunction with the FAA’s replacement airport project under the authority of the Federal Land Policy and Management Act of 1976 (90 Stat. 2750, 43 U.S.C. 1713): Boise Meridian T. 2 S., R. 18 E., Sec. 25: Entire Section; Sec. 26: Entire Section; Sec. 27: Entire Section; Sec. 34: N2N2; and Sec. 35: N2NW, E2. The area described contains 2480 acres in Blaine County. Pursuant to the MFP (as amended), sites associated with disposal of public land for airport facilities not currently identified for disposal out of Federal ownership in the MFP will be considered through the MFP amendment process. Subject to limitations prescribed by law and regulation, prior to patent issuance, a Holder of any right-of-way within the public land may be given the opportunity to amend the right-of-way for conversion to a new term, including perpetuity, if applicable, or to an easement. Conveyance of any mineral interests pursuant to either Section 206 or Section 209 of the FLPMA will be analyzed during processing of the proposed disposal action. On March 25, 2009, the abovedescribed land will be segregated from appropriation under the public land laws, including the mining laws, except the sale and exchange provisions of the E:\FR\FM\25MRN1.SGM 25MRN1
