The area described contains 18,760.63 acres in Broadwater County. The Assistant Secretary for Land and Minerals Management has approved the Bureau of Land Management’s petition for approval to file its withdrawal application. The Assistant Secretary’s approval of the petition constitutes her proposal to withdraw the subject lands. The purpose of the proposed withdrawal is to protect the abovedescribed land pending action on an application for withdrawal of public land for military purposes under the Engle Act. The land is currently used as a military training range involving livefire exercises necessary for national security. The use of a right-of-way or cooperative agreement would not provide adequate authorization for the use of this area due to the broad scope of military training exercises, as well as the non-discretionary nature of the mining laws. There are no suitable alternative sites. The land described above is unique in having been used previously as a military training range with the attendant capital investments. The use of a different site would needlessly degrade a second site and require new capital investments. Potable water from two wells would be used to meet the daily needs for training exercises. The proposed withdrawal itself would not require any water. On or before December 27, 2010, all persons who wish to submit comments, suggestions, or objections in connection with the proposed withdrawal may present their views in writing to the BLM Montana State Director at the address indicated above. Comments and records relating to the proposed withdrawal will be available for public review at the BLM Montana State Office at the address above during regular business hours. Individual respondents may request confidentiality. Before including your address, phone number, e-mail address, or other personal identifying information in your comment, be advised that your entire comment— including your personal identifying information—may be made publicly PO 00000 Frm 00064 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 available at any time. While you can ask us in your comment to withhold from public review your personal identifying information, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so. The proposed withdrawal of public land for military purposes under the Engle Act was discussed at five public meetings as part of the scoping process for the legislative withdrawal Environmental Impact Statement. This withdrawal proposal will be processed in accordance with the regulations set forth in 43 CFR part 2300. For a period of 2 years from the date of publication of this notice in the Federal Register, the land will be segregated from settlement, sale, location, and entry under the general land laws, including the mining laws, unless the application is denied or canceled or the withdrawal is approved prior to that date. Land uses currently permitted under the existing right-ofway agreement may continue during the segregative period. Notice is hereby given that one or more public meetings will be held in connection with the proposed withdrawal. All interested persons who desire a public meeting for the purpose of being heard on the proposed withdrawal must submit a written request to the BLM Montana State Director at the address above by December 27, 2010. A notice of the time and place of any public meetings will be published in the Federal Register and at least one local newspaper at least 30 days before the scheduled date of the meeting.
