However, formal consultation with 16 tribes was completed for the Arkansas River TMP. Information Quality Act In developing these supplementary rules, we did not conduct or use a study, experiment or survey requiring peer review under the Information Quality Act (section 515 of Pub. L. 106– 554). Executive Order 13211, Actions Concerning Regulations That Significantly Affect Energy Supply, Distribution, or Use These supplementary rules do not comprise a significant energy action. These rules will not have an adverse effect on energy supply, production, or consumption and have no connection with energy policy. Executive Order 13352, Facilitation of Cooperative Conservation In accordance with Executive Order 13352, the BLM has determined that the supplementary rules will not impede facilitating cooperative conservation; will take appropriate account of and consider the interests of persons with ownership or other legally recognized interests in land or other natural resources; properly accommodate local participation in the Federal decisionmaking process; and provide that the programs, projects, and activities are consistent with protecting public health and safety. These rules merely establish rules of conduct for recreational use of certain public lands. 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 of 1995, 44 U.S.C. 3501, et seq. WReier-Aviles on DSKGBLS3C1PROD with NOTICES Author The principal author of these proposed supplementary rules is Leah Quesenberry, Renewable Resources Staff Supervisor, BLM, Royal Gorge Field Office. For the reasons stated in the Preamble, and under the authority of 43 U.S.C. 1733(a) and 43 CFR 8365.1–6, the BLM proposes to issue supplementary rules for the public lands within the Arkansas River TMP area, Colorado, to read as follows: VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:15 Jul 22, 2010 Jkt 220001 Supplementary Rules for the Arkansas River Travel Management Plan Area 1. You must not operate a motor vehicle more than 100 feet in any direction off a designated road in the Arkansas River Travel Management Plan (TMP) area. 2. You must not ride mountain bicycles other than on roads and trails designated open to mountain bicycles by a Bureau of Land Management (BLM) sign or map in the Arkansas River TMP area. 3. You must not engage in recreational target shooting on public lands in the Methodist Mountain area south of Salida (2,314 acres) and the Turkey Rock area near Howard (361 acres), which are identified as closed to recreational target shooting by a BLM sign or map. 4. You may not operate a motorized vehicle within the area known as Turkey Rock (52 acres) unless it is a motorcycle specifically designed for observed trials riding, including rear wheel drive and universal trial tires with a width that does not exceed a 4.00 inch cross-section. Exceptions These supplementary rules do not apply to emergency, law enforcement, and Federal or other government vehicles while being used for official or other emergency purposes, or to any other vehicle use that is expressly authorized or otherwise officially approved by the BLM. The prohibition of target shooting in Rule 3 has no effect on hunting by licensed hunters in legitimate pursuit of game during the proper season with appropriate firearms, as defined by the Colorado Division of Wildlife. Penalties On public lands under section 303(a) of the Federal Land Policy and Management Act of 1976 (43 U.S.C. 1733(a) and 43 CFR 8360.0–7), any person who violates any of these supplementary rules may be tried before a United States Magistrate and fined no more than $1,000 or imprisoned for no more than 12 months, or both.
