The main issues addressed in the Final EIS were visual resources, biological resources, lands with wilderness characteristics, and socioeconomic effects. Three alternatives were analyzed in the Final EIS: (1) The Proposed Action, in which the power line would be located largely within West-Wide Energy Corridors; (2) an alternative alignment within the corridors; and (3) no Action, which would be to not authorize the ROW. After careful consideration of many factors, including the need to provide electricity to the Western United States and strengthening and stabilizing the economies of White Pine, Nye, Lincoln, and Clark Counties, and balancing those factors with the need to protect air, visual and biological resources, the BLM has selected the agency preferred alternative. The BLM’s preferred alternative will approve all of the facilities described in the Proposed Action, including the transmission-line route, except the R–SS–Site B subalternative, including the access road and Falcon-Gondor loop-ins will replace the Robinson Summit Substation components. Various site-specific VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:30 Mar 17, 2011 Jkt 223001 applicant-committed mitigation measures will be implemented at the development stage to protect other resources and uses.

DECK TYPE: Antitrust DATE STAMP: March 3, 2011 Response of Plaintiff United States to Public Comment on the Proposed Final Judgment Pursuant to the requirements of the Antitrust Procedures and Penalties Act, 15 U.S.C. 16(b)–(h) (‘‘APPA’’ or ‘‘Tunney Act’’), the United States hereby responds to the public comment received regarding the proposed Final Judgment in this case. After careful consideration of the comment submitted, the United States continues to believe that the proposed Final Judgment will provide an effective and appropriate remedy for the antitrust violations alleged in the Complaint. The United States will move the Court for entry of the proposed Final Judgment after the public comment and this response have been published in the Federal Register, pursuant to 15 U.S.C. 16(d). The United States filed a civil antitrust complaint on November 29, 2010, seeking to enjoin GrafTech International Ltd.’s (‘‘GrafTech’’) proposed acquisition of Seadrift Coke L.P. (‘‘Seadrift’’). The Complaint alleged that the acquisition likely would substantially lessen competition in the worldwide sale of petroleum needle coke used to manufacture graphite electrodes, in violation of Section 7 of the Clayton Act, 15 U.S.C. 18. That loss of competition likely would result in higher prices, reduced output and less favorable terms of sale in the global petroleum needle coke market. Simultaneously with the filing of the Complaint, the United States filed a proposed Final Judgment, which is designed to remedy the expected anticompetitive effects of the acquisition, and a Stipulation signed by the plaintiffs and the defendants, consenting to the entry of the proposed Final Judgment after compliance with the requirements of the Tunney Act, 15 U.S.C. 16.

    The main issues addressed in the Final EIS were visual resources, 
biological resources, lands with wilderness characteristics, and 
socioeconomic effects. Three alternatives were analyzed in the Final 
EIS: (1) The Proposed Action, in which the power line would be located 
largely within West-Wide Energy Corridors; (2) an alternative alignment 
within the corridors; and (3) no Action, which would be to not 
authorize the ROW.
    After careful consideration of many factors, including the need to 
provide electricity to the Western United States and strengthening and 
stabilizing the economies of White Pine, Nye, Lincoln, and Clark 
Counties, and balancing those factors with the need to protect air, 
visual and biological resources, the BLM has selected the agency 
preferred alternative. The BLM's preferred alternative will approve all 
of the facilities described in the Proposed Action, including the 
transmission-line route, except the R-SS-Site B sub-alternative, 
including the access road and Falcon-Gondor loop-ins will replace the 
Robinson Summit Substation components. Various site-specific applicant-
committed mitigation measures will be implemented at the development 
stage to protect other resources and uses.
    Comments on the ON Line Draft Supplemental EIS received from the 
public, cooperating agencies and internal BLM reviewers were 
incorporated into the Final EIS. The comments resulted in corrections, 
clarifying text, and the addition of new text used in the analysis of 
impacts. The ON Line Final EIS addresses impacts of the power line on 
private lands and those administered by the BLM.
    This decision is subject to appeal to the Interior Board of Land 
Appeals (IBLA) as provided in 43 CFR part 4, within 30 days from the 
date of publication of this Notice of Availability in the Federal 
Register. The ROD contains instructions for filing an appeal with the 
IBLA.
    The ROD for this project addresses only BLM's decisions for public 
lands and resources administered by BLM.
