ACTION: Proposed supplementary rules. AGENCY: The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is proposing supplementary rules for all BLMadministered public lands within the approximately 483,700-acre Morley Nelson Snake River Birds of Prey National Conservation Area (NCA), addressed in the September 2008 Resource Management Plan (RMP) and Record of Decision (ROD). The Snake River Birds of Prey NCA RMP identifies implementation level decisions which describe an array of management actions designed to conserve natural and cultural resources on BLM administered land while providing for recreational opportunities. These supplementary rules would help enforce the decisions in the NCA RMP. tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:27 Jul 17, 2012 Jkt 226001 Interested parties may submit written comments regarding the proposed supplementary rules until September 17, 2012.

Background II. Public Comment Procedures III. Discussion of Proposed Supplementary Rules IV. Procedural Matters I. Background Public Law 103–64 established the NCA in 1993 for the ‘‘* * * conservation, protection, and enhancement of raptor populations and habitats and the natural and environmental resources and values associated therewith * * *’’ The NCA’s RMP was completed in September 2008. The NCA is located in southwestern Idaho, within a 30-minute drive of Idaho’s capital, Boise, where almost half of the State’s population resides. It is located in Ada, Canyon, Elmore, and Owyhee counties and encompasses approximately 483,700 public land acres extending 81 miles along the Snake River. The NCA includes the 138,000-acre Orchard Training Area, used by the Idaho Army National Guard for military training since 1953. Within its boundary are approximately 41,200 State, 4,800 private, and 1,600 military acres, and 9,300 acres covered by water. These lands are not affected by the NCA designation or subsequent RMP decisions. These proposed supplementary rules would help the BLM achieve management objectives and implement RMP decisions. They would also provide the BLM with enforcement capability to help prevent damage to natural resources, and provide for public health and safety. II. Public Comment Procedures You may mail, email, or hand-deliver comments to Jared Fluckiger, Recreational Planner, at the addresses PO 00000 Frm 00073 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 42327 listed above (See ADDRESSES). Written comments on the proposed supplementary rules should be specific and confined to issues pertinent to the proposed rules, and should explain the reason for any recommended change. Where possible, comments should reference the specific section or paragraph of the proposal that the commenter is addressing. The BLM is not obligated to consider, or include in the Administrative Record for the final supplementary rules, comments delivered to an address other than those listed above (See ADDRESSES) or comments that the BLM receives after the close of the comment period (See DATES), unless they are postmarked or electronically dated before the deadline. Comments, including names, street addresses, and other contact information for respondents, will be available for public review at the BLM Boise District Office address listed in ADDRESSES during regular business hours (8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, except Federal holidays). Before including your address, phone number, email address, or other personal identifying information in your comment, you should be aware that your comment— including your personal identifying information—may be made publicly available at any time. While you can ask us in your comment to withhold your personal identifying information from public review, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so. III. Discussion of Proposed Supplementary Rules In keeping with the BLM performance goal of reducing threats to public health, safety, and property, supplementary rules are necessary to protect the natural and cultural resources within the NCA as described in the NCA Management Plan; to allow for safe public recreation and public health; to reduce the potential for environmental damage; and to enhance the safety of visitors and neighboring residents. The proposed supplementary rules would prohibit rock climbing and rappelling on BLM-administered public land within the Morley Nelson Snake River Birds of Prey NCA because of adverse effects to 16 species of raptors that nest in or on canyon walls at various times of the year. Unstable basalt also poses a significant safety hazard to anyone climbing on the cliffs. Prohibiting open fires outside of BLMapproved fire rings would help avert human-caused wildfire which would protect archeological sites and slickspot peppergrass (Lepidium papilliferum), E:\FR\FM\18JYN1.SGM 18JYN1
