VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:27 Mar 21, 2013 Jkt 229001 Individuals who use telecommunication devices for the deaf (TDD) may call the Federal Information Relay Service (FIRS) at 1–800–877–8339 between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m., Eastern Time, Monday through Friday. The Canada lynx was listed as a Threatened species under the Endangered Species Act in 2000. The 1997 Targhee Revised Forest Plan did not identify lynx habitat. The NRLMD ROD established programmatic management direction for lynx habitat on the Targhee but did not make a decision about what lynx habitat is, where linkage area boundaries are, or how they are identified. This analysis has been initiated in response to a June 6, 2012, District of Idaho Court Order. In that order, the Court determined that the Agency may not rely upon its 2005 Lynx Analysis Unit Map which delineates the areas subject to the NRLMD until it is analyzed in an EIS pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act. The project area is located in the Idaho counties of Bonneville, Butte, Clark, Fremont, Jefferson, Lemhi, Madison, Teton; and the Wyoming counties of Lincoln and Teton. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Responsible Official The Caribou-Targhee National Forest Supervisor is the responsible official and will make the decision. Nature of Decision to Be Made In the decision, the responsible official will decide whether or not to amend the 1997 Targhee Revised Forest Plan. Preliminary Issues 1. Disagreement regarding the extent and distribution of lynx habitat across the Targhee portion of the CaribouTarghee National Forest. Fmt 4703 Scoping Process This Notice initiates the public involvement process, which guides the development of the alternatives and the analysis. It is important that reviewers provide their comments at such times and in such manner that they are useful to the agency’s preparation of the Draft EIS. Therefore, comments should be provided prior to the close of the comment period and should clearly articulate the reviewer’s concerns. Comments received in response to this scoping notice, including names and addresses of those who comment, will become part of the public record for this proposed action. Comments submitted anonymously will be accepted and considered. Dated: March 15, 2013. Brent Larson, Forest Supervisor. BILLING CODE 3410–11–P The proposed action is to amend the 1997 Targhee Revised Forest Plan to incorporate a map that will identify lynx habitat, lynx analysis units, and linkage areas. The map will incorporate the finest-scale vegetation information and best data available. The analysis will be completed in compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act, the NRLMD and other applicable laws, rules, regulations and policies. The effects of such an amendment will be analyzed and disclosed in the EIS. Consultation with the US Fish and Wildlife Service will occur to ensure compliance with the Endangered Species Act. Frm 00007 Possible Alternatives At a minimum, the proposed action and a no action alternative will be analyzed. The no action alternative would not incorporate the lynx habitat, LAU, and linkage area map as an amendment to the 1997 Targhee Revised Forest Plan.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: 7 CFR 1940 Subpart G, ‘‘Environmental Program.’’ OMB Number: 0575–0094. Expiration Date of Approval: May 31, 2013. Type of Request: Extension of a currently approved information collection. Abstract: The information collection under OMB Number 0575–0094 enables the Agencies to effectively administer the policies, methods, and responsibilities for compliance with the NEPA and other applicable environmental laws, executive orders, and regulations. The NEPA requires Federal agencies to consider the potential environmental impacts of proposed major Federal actions on the quality of the human environment during agency planning and decision-making processes. For Rural Development to comply, it is necessary that they have information on the types of environmental resources on site or in the vicinity of an Applicant’s proposed project that could be impacted by Rural Development Federal action. The Applicant is the logical source for providing this information. In fact, the vast majority of Federal Agencies that assist non-Federal Applicants in sponsoring projects require their Applicants to submit such environmental data to allow the agency to make an informed decision. Both Rural Development provide forms and/or other guidance to assist in the collection and submission of necessary information. The information is usually submitted via email, U.S. Postal Service, or hand delivery to the appropriate Agency office. The information is used by the Agency official who is processing the application for financial assistance or request for approval. Having environmental information on the Applicant’s proposed project and the construction and operation activities enables the Agency official to determine the magnitude of any potential environmental impacts and to take such impacts into consideration during planning and decision-making as required by NEPA. The analysis of potential environmental impacts of an Applicant’s proposed project and Rural Development decision is a full disclosure process, and therefore, can involve public information meetings and public notification. Estimate of Burden: Public reporting burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 3.7 hours per response.

of the methodology and assumptions used; (c) ways to enhance the 
quality, utility and clarity of the information to be collected; and
