Notice of Public Meeting, 32644-32645 [E9-16145]

Download as PDF mstockstill on DSKH9S0YB1PROD with NOTICES 32644 Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 129 / Wednesday, July 8, 2009 / Notices to leasing the federal coal that is located on USFS-administered lands. The Black Thunder Mine, Jacobs Ranch Mine, and North Antelope Rochelle Mine are operating under approved mining permits from the WDEQ Land Quality and Air Quality Divisions. If the tracts are leased to existing mines, the new leases must be incorporated into the existing mining and reclamation plans for the adjacent mines. Before the Federal coal in each tract can be mined, the Secretary of the Interior must approve the revised Mineral Leasing Act (MLA) mining plan for the mine in which each tract will be included. OSM is the Federal agency that is responsible for recommending approval, approval with conditions, or disapproval of the revised MLA mining plan to the Office of the Secretary of the Interior. The DEIS analyzes and discloses to the public the direct, indirect, and cumulative environmental impacts associated with leasing six Federal coal tracts in the Wyoming portion of the Powder River Basin. A copy of the DEIS has been sent to affected Federal, State, and local government agencies; persons and entities identified as potentially being affected by a decision to lease the Federal coal in each of the tracts; and persons who indicated to the BLM that they wished to receive a copy of the DEIS. The purpose of the public hearing is to solicit comments on the DEIS, on the proposed competitive sales of the six Federal coal lease maintenance tracts, and on the FMV and MER of the Federal coal. The DEIS analyzes leasing the six Wright Area coal tracts as the Proposed Action. Under the Proposed Action, a competitive sale would be held and a lease issued for Federal coal contained in the tracts as applied for by each of the applicants. As part of the coal leasing process, the BLM is evaluating adding additional Federal coal to the tracts to avoid bypassing coal or to prompt competitive interest in unleased Federal coal in the area. The alternate tract configurations for each of the LBAs that BLM is evaluating are described and analyzed as separate alternatives in the DEIS. Under these alternatives, competitive sales would be held and leases would be issued for Federal coal lands included in tracts modified by the BLM. The DEIS also analyzes the alternative of rejecting the application(s) to lease Federal coal as the No Action Alternative. The Proposed Actions and alternatives for each of the LBAs being considered in the DEIS are in conformance with the Approved Resource Management Plan for Public VerDate Nov<24>2008 17:23 Jul 07, 2009 Jkt 217001 Lands Administered by the Bureau of Land Management Buffalo Field Office (2001) and the USDA-Forest Service Land and Resource Management Plan for the Thunder Basin National Grassland (2002). Requests to be included on the mailing list for this project and requests for copies of the DEIS may be sent in writing, by fax, or electronically to the addresses previously stated at the beginning of this notice. For those submitting comments on the DEIS, please make the comments as specific as possible with reference to page numbers and sections of the document. Comments that contain only opinions or preferences will not receive a formal response; however, they will be considered as part of the BLM decisionmaking process. Please note that public comments and information submitted to the BLM including the commenter’s name, street address, and e-mail address will be available for public review and disclosure at the above address during regular business hours (7:45 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.), Monday through Friday, except holidays.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The BLM estimates about 36,000 wild horses and burros are roaming on BLMadministered rangelands in 10 Western states. Wild horses and burros have virtually no natural predators and their herd sizes can double about every four years. As a result, the agency must remove thousands of animals from the range each year to control herd sizes. The estimated current free-roaming population is 9,400 more than the level that the BLM has determined can exist in balance with other public rangeland resources and uses. Oregon/Washington BLM averages 400–500 horses gathered annually from public lands. For 2009, gathers are tentatively planned for Herd Management Areas within the Burns, Lakeview, and Prineville Districts. Dated: July 1, 2009. Approved: Kenny McDaniel, District Manager. [FR Doc.
