SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On February 7, 2011 (76 FR 6587), we 
published a proposed rule that was in response to a required program 
amendment codified in the Federal regulations. The submission included 
information that Pennsylvania had submitted to demonstrate that 
sufficient funds exist to guarantee coverage of the full cost of land 
reclamation at all sites originally permitted and bonded under the now-
defunct alternative bonding system. Pennsylvania requested that the 
program amendment be removed based on the information provided.
    On June 13, 2011, (Administrative Record Number PA 802.80), we 
received additional information from Pennsylvania regarding recent 
developments involving one permit that was transferred to another 
company, resulting in the posting of full-cost bond in an amount to 
cover the land reclamation obligation. Included with this submission is 
the mining permit, Part C (Authorization to Mine), and the calculation 
sheet documenting the bond amount.
    We are reopening and extending the comment period to incorporate 
subsequent information that we received from Pennsylvania regarding one 
permit involving land reclamation obligations.

Public Comment Procedures

    Under the provisions of 30 CFR 732.17(h), we are seeking your

approval criteria of 30 CFR 732.15. If we approve the amendment, it 
will become part of the Pennsylvania program.
