Notice of Temporary Closure of Public Lands in Fergus County, MT, 57499-57500 [2010-23467]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 182 / Tuesday, September 21, 2010 / Notices in accordance with Executive Order 13132, the BLM has determined that these proposed 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 Idaho State Office has determined that these proposed supplementary rules would not unduly burden the judicial system and that they meet the requirements of sections 3(a) and 3(b)(2) of the Order. Executive Order 13175, Consultation and Coordination With Indian Tribal Governments In accordance with Executive Order 13175, we have found that these proposed supplementary rules do not include policies that have tribal implications. Since the proposed rules do not change BLM policy as it pertains to Tribes and do not involve Indian reservation lands, resources, or property rights, the BLM has determined that the government-to-government relationships should remain unaffected. Executive Order 13211, Actions Concerning Regulations That Significantly Affect Energy Supply, Distribution, or Use These proposed supplementary rules do not comprise a significant energy action. The rules will not have an adverse effect on energy supplies, production, or consumption. They only address the use of certified noxiousweed-free forage and straw on public lands and have no connection with energy policy. Paperwork Reduction Act These proposed 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. Author srobinson on DSKHWCL6B1PROD with NOTICES The principal author of these proposed supplementary rules is Roger Rosentreter, Botanist, Idaho BLM State Office. Supplementary Rules To Require the Use of Certified Noxious-Weed-Free Forage and Straw on Bureau of Land Management-Administered Public Lands in Idaho (1) To prevent the spread of noxious weeds on BLM-administered public lands in Idaho, it is a prohibited act to feed or store forage or straw on BLM- VerDate Mar<15>2010 19:02 Sep 20, 2010 Jkt 220001 administered land that has not been certified as noxious-weed-free. Restoration, rehabilitation, and stabilization projects also are required to use weed-free straw bales and mulch for project work. Once this rule becomes effective, there will be a 60-day grace period for enforcement of this rule. (2) The certification program currently includes 57 weeds that have been designated as noxious in Idaho under the Idaho State noxious-weed-free standards, or certified to be free from those weeds designated in the North American Weed Free Forage Program list, which was developed by the North American Weed Management Association (NAWMA). This NAWMA list currently includes the 57 weeds designated noxious in Idaho and also includes an additional 15 invasive weeds. BLM Idaho allows forage that meets Idaho, NAWMA, or other states’ standards for certification as noxiousweed-free. Although weeds may be added or removed from these various lists, the BLM recognizes this forage as certified noxious-weed-free as long as it has been marked indicating that it meets the standards for certification. (3) Certified noxious-weed-free hay must be identified by one of the following: (a) State certification tag attached to the bale string; (b) At least one strand of purple and yellow (intertwined) bale twine encircling the bale; (c) Blue and orange (intertwined) bale twine encircling the bale; or (d) Other colored twine encircling the bale that is used to designate certified forage. (4) Certified noxious-weed-free compressed forage bales are identified by yellow binding (strapping) material with the statement ‘‘ISDA NWFFS’’ and the manufacturer’s name printed in purple. (5) Certified noxious-weed-free forage in bags is identified by a stamp, sticker, or printing on the bag identifying it as certified forage. (6) The following persons/activities are exempt from this order: (a) Any person with a permit or letter signed by a BLM authorized officer specifically authorizing the prohibited act, such as an authorized livestock permittee during an emergency situation in which livestock must be fed uncertified forage or hay for a short period of time until they can be moved to safety; and (b) Any person transporting hay or forage across public lands from private property to private property.

Such violations may also be subject to enhanced fines provided for by 18 U.S.C. 3571. Peter J. Ditton, Acting Idaho State Director, Bureau of Land Management.

ACTION: Notice of temporary area closure. AGENCY: Notice is hereby given that a temporary closure of public land to motorized vehicles, hiking, or other recreational uses is in effect on 660 acres of public lands administered by the Lewistown Field Office, Bureau of Land Management, within the Limekiln Canyon/Ruby Gulch area. This notice also applies to a BLM-held easement over 80 acres of private land. DATES: This temporary closure will be in effect for 2 years from the date this notice is published in the Federal Register.

The FIRS is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, to leave a message or question with the above individual. You will receive a reply during normal business hours. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This temporary closure is in response to a severe wind event that heavily damaged most of the timber within this 660-acre block of BLM-managed lands in the Judith Mountains Recreation Management Area in Fergus County, Montana. The downed timber is blocking a portion of a popular loop hiking trail and, if left in place, will also SUMMARY: E:\FR\FM\21SEN1.SGM 21SEN1 57500 Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 182 / Tuesday, September 21, 2010 / Notices contribute to the potential for catastrophic wildland fire. The BLM has contracted for road construction into the damaged area, salvage logging, and reclamation of the road once salvage logging is completed and administrative access is no longer needed. In the interim, the mixture of heavy equipment, a narrow temporary road, logging operations, steep slopes, tumbling rocks, and other debris in the construction/logging area make the area unsafe for public use, including motorized vehicles, hiking, or other recreational uses. Approximately two-thirds of the loop hiking trail within the Limekiln Canyon/Ruby Gulch area will remain available for public use. The area closure (including about one-third of the hiking trail) is necessary to protect the public health and safety and to enhance efficient contract administration.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This temporary closure is in response to a

contribute to the potential for catastrophic wildland fire. The BLM has 
contracted for road construction into the damaged area, salvage 
logging, and reclamation of the road once salvage logging is completed 
and administrative access is no longer needed. In the interim, the 
mixture of heavy equipment, a narrow temporary road, logging 
operations, steep slopes, tumbling rocks, and other debris in the 
construction/logging area make the area unsafe for public use, 
including motorized vehicles, hiking, or other recreational uses.

Limekiln Canyon/Ruby Gulch area will remain available for public use.
    The area closure (including about one-third of the hiking trail) is
