It is possible that emphasizing family history may have economic costs as well, as limited resources are allocated across a wide variety of health promotion activities in the primary care setting. In order to take a closer look at this important topic, the National Human Genome Research Institute and the Office of Medical Applications of Research of the National Institutes of Health will convene a State-of-theScience conference from August 24 to 26, 2009, to assess the available scientific evidence related to the following questions: • What are the key elements of a family history in a primary care setting for the purposes of risk assessment for common diseases? • What is the accuracy of the family history, and under what conditions does the accuracy vary? • What is the direct evidence that getting a family history will improve health outcomes for the patient and/or family? • What is the direct evidence that getting a family history will result in adverse outcomes for the patient and/or family? • What are the factors that encourage or discourage obtaining and using a family history? • What are future research directions for assessing the value of family history for common diseases in the primary care setting? An impartial, independent panel will be charged with reviewing the available published literature in advance of the conference, including a systematic literature review commissioned through the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality. The first day and a half of the conference will consist of presentations by expert researchers and practitioners and open public discussions. On Wednesday, August 26, the panel will present a statement of its collective assessment of the evidence to answer each of the questions above. The panel will also hold a press conference to address questions from the media. The draft statement will be published online later that day, and the final version will be released approximately six weeks later. The primary sponsors of this meeting are the NIH National Human Genome Research Institute and the NIH Office of Medical Applications of Research.

ACTION: Final supplementary rules. SUMMARY: The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is issuing new supplementary rules for the Hot Well Dunes (HWD) Recreation Area, which is located in Graham County, Arizona, and is managed by the Gila District and Safford Field Office. The rules address vehicle rider capacity, clinging to or being towed by a vehicle, safety flags, vehicle use, public nudity, firearms, pets, speed limit, camping, waste disposal, and length of stay. All current supplementary rules for the HWD Recreation Area are rescinded and replaced by these revised rules. DATES: These rules will become effective August 10, 2009.

Background and Purpose II. Public Comment III. Discussion of Supplementary Rules IV. Procedural Matters I. Background and Purpose The Hot Well Dunes Recreation Area is an off-highway vehicle (OHV) play E:\FR\FM\09JYN1.SGM 09JYN1 32950 Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 130 / Thursday, July 9, 2009 / Notices rmajette on DSK29S0YB1 with NOTICES area in southeastern Arizona that is managed by the BLM Safford Field Office. Due to increases in visitation at the HWD and the types of vehicles in use, in light of the nature of the terrain and vegetation, the BLM proposed new supplementary rules to reduce threats to public health, safety, and property. The proposal was published in the Federal Register on October 16, 2008, with a 60day public comment period that ended December 15, 2008 (see 73 FR 61437). These supplementary rules will allow the BLM to increase law enforcement efforts that will help mitigate damage to natural resources and provide for public health and safe public recreation. II. Public Comment The 60-day public comment period closed December 15, 2008. The BLM received three comments. The first comment thanked the BLM for keeping the area open but asked the BLM to include a helmet requirement for riders less than 18 years of age. That requirement was not made part of the supplementary rules because it is part of Arizona Senate Bill 1167 that was passed by the Legislature, signed by the Governor, and became effective on January 1, 2009. The BLM will enforce the State requirement within the HWD, but will not include it in these supplementary rules in order to avoid redundancy. The second comment commended the BLM on the proposed supplementary rules but expressed concern that there are not enough BLM law enforcement rangers to enforce them. That comment is not within the scope of the supplementary rules as it is a budget and staffing issue. The second comment also expressed a concern about people using shampoo in the hot tubs. BLM rangers already have the authority to cite recreation users for pollution or contamination of the water; this is covered by Title 43 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 8365.1–1. Therefore, a new supplementary rule addressing this problem is unnecessary. The third comment related to vehicle rider capacity. The commenter was concerned that not allowing additional riders on all-terrain vehicles would prevent parents and grandparents from giving young children rides. He suggested amending the rule to allow double riding as long as the driver was at least 21 years old and the child was 6 years old or younger. We are not going to adopt this suggestion, in view of the purpose of enhancing public safety at the HWD. Children riding tandem with an adult can be injured, especially during busy times of the year and in VerDate Nov<24>2008 15:49 Jul 08, 2009 Jkt 217001 areas where visibility is limited. Additionally there are hundreds of backcountry roads in the Safford Field Office where this restriction is not in place. III. Discussion of Supplementary Rules The BLM Gila District/Safford Field Office replaces all prior supplementary rules for the HWD Recreation Area with the new supplementary rules. This action falls within the Federal Land Policy and Management Act (FLPMA), Title 43 United States Code (U.S.C.) 1740 and Title 43 CFR 8365.1–6. The supplementary rules set forth requirements and prohibited acts that are applicable within the BLM’s Hot Well Dunes Recreation Area, Graham County, Arizona. IV. Procedural Matters Executive Order 12866, Regulatory Planning and Review These supplementary rules do not comprise a significant regulatory action and are not subject to review by the Office of Management and Budget under Executive Order 12866. The supplementary rules will not have an annual effect of $100 million or more on the economy. They will not adversely affect in a material way the economy, productivity, competition, jobs, environment, public health or safety, or State, local, or Tribal governments or communities. They will not create a serious inconsistency or otherwise interfere with an action taken or planned by another agency. They do not materially alter the budgetary effects of entitlements, grants, user fees, or loan programs or the rights or obligations of their recipients, nor do they raise novel legal or policy issues. They merely impose rules of conduct on recreational visitors for health and safety reasons in a limited area of the public lands. Clarity of the Supplementary Rules Executive Order 12866 requires each agency to write regulations that are simple and easy to understand. No public comments were received that questioned the clarity of the supplementary rules’ language. National Environmental Policy Act The supplementary rules do not constitute a major Federal action significantly affecting the quality of the human environment under Section 102(2)(C) of the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, Title 42 U.S.C. 4332(2)(C). The Safford Field Office completed an Environmental Assessment of the rules (AZ–410–2008– 0039). A Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) and Decision Record PO 00000 Frm 00075 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 were signed by Acting Safford Field Manager Jeff Wilbanks on June 1, 2008. Regulatory Flexibility Act Congress enacted the Regulatory Flexibility Act (RFA) of 1980, as amended, Title 5 U.S.C. 601–612, to ensure that government regulations do not unnecessarily or disproportionately burden small entities. The RFA requires a regulatory flexibility analysis if a rule would have a significant economic impact, either detrimental or beneficial, on a substantial number of small entities. The supplementary rules do not have a significant economic impact on entities of any size, but provide for the protection of persons, property, and resources on specific public lands. Therefore, the BLM has determined under the RFA that the supplementary rules will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act These supplementary rules do not constitute a major rule as defined at Title 5 U.S.C. 804(2). They merely contain rules of conduct for recreational use of certain public lands. The supplementary rules will have little or no effect on the economy. Unfunded Mandates Reform Act The supplementary rules do not impose an unfunded mandate on State, local, or Tribal governments in the aggregate, or the private sector, of more than $100 million per year; nor will they have a significant or unique effect on small governments. These supplementary rules do not require anything of State, local, or Tribal governments. Therefore, the BLM is not required to prepare a statement containing the information required by section 202 of the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act (Title 2 U.S.C. 1532). Executive Order 12630, Governmental Actions and Interference With Constitutionally Protected Property Rights (Takings) The supplementary rules are not a government action capable of interfering with constitutionally protected property rights. The supplementary rules do not address property rights or cause the impairment of anybody’s property rights. Therefore, the BLM has determined that these supplementary rules will not cause a ‘‘taking’’ of private property or require further discussion of ‘‘takings’’ implications under this Executive Order. E:\FR\FM\09JYN1.SGM 09JYN1 Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 130 / Thursday, July 9, 2009 / Notices Executive Order 13132, Federalism The supplementary rules will not have substantial direct effects on the States, on the relationship between the Federal government and the States, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities among the various levels of government. The supplementary rules apply to a limited area of land in only one State, Arizona. Therefore, the BLM determined that the supplementary rules do not have sufficient Federalism implications to warrant preparation of a Federalism assessment. Executive Order 12988, Civil Justice Reform Under Executive Order 12988, the BLM has determined that the supplementary rules will not unduly burden the judicial system and that the requirements of sections 3(a) and 3(b)(2) of the Order are met. The supplementary rules contain rules of conduct for recreational use of certain public lands to protect human health and the environment. Executive Order 13175, Consultation and Coordination With Indian Tribal Governments In accordance with Executive Order 13175, the BLM found that these supplementary rules do not include policies that have Tribal implications. The rules do not affect lands held for the benefit of Indians, Aleuts, or Eskimos.

area in southeastern Arizona that is managed by the BLM Safford Field 
Office.
    Due to increases in visitation at the HWD and the types of vehicles 
in use, in light of the nature of the terrain and vegetation, the BLM 
proposed new supplementary rules to reduce threats to public health, 
safety, and property. The proposal was published in the Federal 
Register on October 16, 2008, with a 60-day public comment period that 
ended December 15, 2008 (see 73 FR 61437).
    These supplementary rules will allow the BLM to increase law 
enforcement efforts that will help mitigate damage to natural resources 
and provide for public health and safe public recreation.

II. Public Comment

    The 60-day public comment period closed December 15, 2008. The BLM 
received three comments. The first comment thanked the BLM for keeping 
the area open but asked the BLM to include a helmet requirement for 
riders less than 18 years of age. That requirement was not made part of 
the supplementary rules because it is part of Arizona Senate Bill 1167 
that was passed by the Legislature, signed by the Governor, and became 
effective on January 1, 2009. The BLM will enforce the State 
requirement within the HWD, but will not include it in these 
supplementary rules in order to avoid redundancy.
    The second comment commended the BLM on the proposed supplementary 
rules but expressed concern that there are not enough BLM law 
enforcement rangers to enforce them. That comment is not within the 
scope of the supplementary rules as it is a budget and staffing issue. 
The second comment also expressed a concern about people using shampoo

recreation users for pollution or contamination of the water; this is 
covered by Title 43 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 8365.1-1. 
Therefore, a new supplementary rule addressing this problem is

vehicles would prevent parents and grandparents from giving young 
children rides. He suggested amending the rule to allow double riding 
as long as the driver was at least 21 years old and the child was 6

view of the purpose of enhancing public safety at the HWD. Children 
riding tandem with an adult can be injured, especially during busy 
times of the year and in areas where visibility is limited. 
Additionally there are hundreds of backcountry roads in the Safford 
Field Office where this restriction is not in place.

III. Discussion of Supplementary Rules

    The BLM Gila District/Safford Field Office replaces all prior 
supplementary rules for the HWD Recreation Area with the new 
supplementary rules. This action falls within the Federal Land Policy 
and Management Act (FLPMA), Title 43 United States Code (U.S.C.) 1740 
and Title 43 CFR 8365.1-6. The supplementary rules set forth 
requirements and prohibited acts that are applicable within the BLM's 
Hot Well Dunes Recreation Area, Graham County, Arizona.

IV. Procedural Matters

Executive Order 12866, Regulatory Planning and Review

    These supplementary rules do not comprise a significant regulatory 
action and are not subject to review by the Office of Management and 
Budget under Executive Order 12866. The supplementary rules will not 
have an annual effect of $100 million or more on the economy. They will 
not adversely affect in a material way the economy, productivity, 
competition, jobs, environment, public health or safety, or State, 
local, or Tribal governments or communities. They will not create a 
serious inconsistency or otherwise interfere with an action taken or 
planned by another agency. They do not materially alter the budgetary 
effects of entitlements, grants, user fees, or loan programs or the 
rights or obligations of their recipients, nor do they raise novel 
legal or policy issues. They merely impose rules of conduct on 
recreational visitors for health and safety reasons in a limited area 
of the public lands.

Clarity of the Supplementary Rules

    Executive Order 12866 requires each agency to write regulations 
that are simple and easy to understand. No public comments were 
received that questioned the clarity of the supplementary rules' 
language.

National Environmental Policy Act

    The supplementary rules do not constitute a major Federal action 
significantly affecting the quality of the human environment under 
Section 102(2)(C) of the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, 
Title 42 U.S.C. 4332(2)(C). The Safford Field Office completed an 
Environmental Assessment of the rules (AZ-410-2008-0039). A Finding of 
No Significant Impact (FONSI) and Decision Record were signed by Acting 
Safford Field Manager Jeff Wilbanks on June 1, 2008.

Regulatory Flexibility Act

    Congress enacted the Regulatory Flexibility Act (RFA) of 1980, as 
amended, Title 5 U.S.C. 601-612, to ensure that government regulations 
do not unnecessarily or disproportionately burden small entities. The 
RFA requires a regulatory flexibility analysis if a rule would have a 
significant economic impact, either detrimental or beneficial, on a 
substantial number of small entities. The supplementary rules do not 
have a significant economic impact on entities of any size, but provide 
for the protection of persons, property, and resources on specific 
public lands. Therefore, the BLM has determined under the RFA that the 
supplementary rules will not have a significant economic impact on a 
substantial number of small entities.

Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act

    These supplementary rules do not constitute a major rule as defined 
at Title 5 U.S.C. 804(2). They merely contain rules of conduct for 
recreational use of certain public lands. The supplementary rules will 
have little or no effect on the economy.

Unfunded Mandates Reform Act

    The supplementary rules do not impose an unfunded mandate on State, 
local, or Tribal governments in the aggregate, or the private sector, 
of more than $100 million per year; nor will they have a significant or 
unique effect on small governments. These supplementary rules do not 
require anything of State, local, or Tribal governments. Therefore, the 
BLM is not required to prepare a statement containing the information 
required by section 202 of the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act (Title 2 
U.S.C. 1532).

Executive Order 12630, Governmental Actions and Interference With 
Constitutionally Protected Property Rights (Takings)

    The supplementary rules are not a government action capable of 
interfering with constitutionally protected property rights. The 
supplementary rules do not address property rights or cause the 
impairment of anybody's property rights. Therefore, the BLM has 
determined that these supplementary rules will not cause a ``taking'' 
of private property or require further discussion of ``takings'' 
implications under this Executive Order.

[[Page 32951]]

Executive Order 13132, Federalism

    The supplementary rules will not have substantial direct effects on 
the States, on the relationship between the Federal government and the 
States, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities among the 
various levels of government. The supplementary rules apply to a 
limited area of land in only one State, Arizona. Therefore, the BLM 
determined that the supplementary rules do not have sufficient 
Federalism implications to warrant preparation of a Federalism 
assessment.

Executive Order 12988, Civil Justice Reform

    Under Executive Order 12988, the BLM has determined that the 
supplementary rules will not unduly burden the judicial system and that 
the requirements of sections 3(a) and 3(b)(2) of the Order are met. The 
supplementary rules contain rules of conduct for recreational use of 
certain public lands to protect human health and the environment.

Executive Order 13175, Consultation and Coordination With Indian Tribal 
Governments

    In accordance with Executive Order 13175, the BLM found that these 
supplementary rules do not include policies that have Tribal 
implications. The rules do not affect lands held for the benefit of 
Indians, Aleuts, or Eskimos.

Paperwork Reduction Act

    These supplementary rules do not contain information collection 
requirements that the Office of Management and Budget must approve 
under the Paperwork Reduction Act, Title 44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.

Author

    The principal author of the supplementary rules is Larry Ramirez, 
Law Enforcement Ranger for the BLM Gila District/Safford Field Office.
