ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: SUMMARY: Pursuant to section 808 of the California Military Lands Withdrawal and Overflight Act of 1994 (Act), the Department of the Navy (DoN), on behalf of the U.S. Marines, has filed an application to modify and extend the current legislative withdrawal of public lands from all forms of appropriation under the public land laws, including the mining laws, the mineral leasing laws, and the geothermal leasing laws, for military use of the Chocolate Mountain Aerial Gunnery Range (CMAGR) in Imperial and Riverside Counties, California. The lands are currently withdrawn under the Act, which is a part of the California Desert Protection Act, which reserves these lands for defense-related purposes for a period of 20 years. Unless Congress extends the withdrawal, it will expire on October 30, 2014. The extension application includes a request that additional Federal lands be withdrawn in aid of a proposed legislative adjustment to the boundary for the purpose of improving management. This notice gives an opportunity for the public to comment on the proposed withdrawal expansion and extension and announces the date, time, and location of a public meeting. DATES: Comments must be received on or before June 25, 2013. The BLM will hold a public meeting in connection with the proposed withdrawal extension on April 25, 2013. For the time and location, please see SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION below. ADDRESSES: Comments should be sent to Cynthia Staszak, Assistant Deputy State Director, Natural Resources (CA–930), California Bureau of Land Management, 2800 Cottage Way, Suite 1834, Sacramento, CA 95825–1886.

You will receive a reply during normal business hours. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Act provides that the DoN may seek an extension of the CMAGR withdrawal and requires the Secretary of the Navy both to submit an application to extend the withdrawal to the Secretary of the Interior for processing in accordance with the Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM) regulations pertaining to withdrawals, and to publish a Draft Legislative Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) addressing legislative alternatives and the effects of continued withdrawal. The CMAGR Draft Legislative EIS, published on August 31, 2012, is available at www.chocolatemountainrenewal.com. The Department of the Navy’s Notice of Availability can be found at 77 FR 53189. The Draft Legislative EIS evaluates the environmental effects of extending the withdrawal for an additional 25 years, as well as expanding the area withdrawn in order to facilitate restructuring the existing range boundary to improve efficiency in the management of the CMAGR and adjacent lands, safeguard public use of adjacent public lands, and consolidate the lands for more efficient environmental stewardship. As a result of the proposed boundary restructuring, Federal and non-Federal lands may be added to the existing withdrawal. This notice temporarily segregates the additional 24,700 acres Federal lands from all forms of appropriation under the public land laws, including the United States mining laws, and from the operation of the mineral and geothermal leasing laws, and the Mineral Materials Act of 1947, for up to 2 years while the legislative withdrawal application is being processed. Approximately 24,700 acres of Federal lands may be added to the existing 225,100 acre withdrawal. This notice also invites the public to comment on the proposed extension and expansion of the CMAGR withdrawal, and initiates a 90-day comment period on the withdrawal extension/expansion application.

Unified Government of Wyandotte County and Kansas City, Kansas, et al., Civil Action No. 13–02141–EFM–KGG. The United States filed this Clean Water Act lawsuit on behalf of the United States Environmental Protection Agency. The complaint seeks injunctive relief and civil penalties for violations of the Clean Water Act in connection with the Unified Government’s sewer and storm water systems. The proposed Partial Consent Decree will require the Unified Government to implement improved operation and maintenance programs for the sewer system, perform initial work over the next four years to address sewer overflows, develop a proposed overflow control plan for the sewer system by September 2016, and implement an improved Storm Water Management Plan for the storm water system.

Notice of Proposed Expansion, Extension, and Notification of a 
Public Meeting for the Chocolate Mountain Aerial Gunnery Range 
Withdrawal; CA

AGENCY: Bureau of Land Management, Interior.

ACTION: Notice.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: Pursuant to section 808 of the California Military Lands 
Withdrawal and Overflight Act of 1994 (Act), the Department of the Navy 
(DoN), on behalf of the U.S. Marines, has filed an application to 
modify and extend the current legislative withdrawal of public lands 
from all forms of appropriation under the public land laws, including 
the mining laws, the mineral leasing laws, and the geothermal leasing 
laws, for military use of the Chocolate Mountain Aerial Gunnery Range 
(CMAGR) in Imperial and Riverside Counties, California. The lands are 
currently withdrawn under the Act, which is a part of the California 
Desert Protection Act, which reserves these lands for defense-related 
purposes for a period of 20 years. Unless Congress extends the 
withdrawal, it will expire on October 30, 2014. The extension 
application includes a request that additional Federal lands be 
withdrawn in aid of a proposed legislative adjustment to the boundary 
for the purpose of improving management. This notice gives an 
opportunity for the public to comment on the proposed withdrawal 
expansion and extension and announces the date, time, and location of a 
public meeting.

DATES: Comments must be received on or before June 25, 2013. The BLM 
will hold a public meeting in connection with the proposed withdrawal 
extension on April 25, 2013. For the time and location, please see 
SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION below.

ADDRESSES: Comments should be sent to Cynthia Staszak, Assistant Deputy 
State Director, Natural Resources (CA-930), California Bureau of Land 
Management, 2800 Cottage Way, Suite 1834, Sacramento, CA 95825-1886.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Elizabeth Easley, Realty Specialist, 
916-978-4673. Persons who use a telecommunications device for the deaf 
(TDD) may call the Federal Information Relay Service (FIRS) at 1-800-
877-8339 to contact the above individual. The FIRS is available 24 
hours a day, 7 days a week, to leave a message or question with the 
above individual. You will receive a reply during normal business 
hours.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Act provides that the DoN may seek an 
extension of the CMAGR withdrawal and requires the Secretary of the 
Navy both to submit an application to extend the withdrawal to the 
Secretary of the Interior for processing in accordance with the Bureau 
of Land Management's (BLM) regulations pertaining to withdrawals, and 
to publish a Draft Legislative Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) 
addressing legislative alternatives and the effects of continued 
withdrawal. The CMAGR Draft Legislative EIS, published on August 31, 
2012, is available at www.chocolatemountainrenewal.com. The Department 
of the Navy's Notice of Availability can be found at 77 FR 53189. The 
Draft Legislative EIS evaluates the environmental effects of extending 
the withdrawal for an additional 25 years, as well as expanding the 
area withdrawn in order to facilitate restructuring the existing range 
boundary to improve efficiency in the management of the CMAGR and 
adjacent lands, safeguard public use of adjacent public lands, and 
consolidate the lands for more efficient environmental stewardship. As 
a result of the proposed boundary restructuring, Federal and non-
Federal lands may be added to the existing withdrawal.
    This notice temporarily segregates the additional 24,700 acres 
Federal lands from all forms of appropriation under the public land 
laws, including the United States mining laws, and from the operation 
of the mineral and geothermal leasing laws, and the Mineral Materials 
Act of 1947, for up to 2 years while the legislative withdrawal 
application is being processed. Approximately 24,700 acres of Federal 
lands may be added to the existing 225,100 acre withdrawal. This notice 
also invites the public to comment on the proposed extension and 
expansion of the CMAGR withdrawal, and initiates a 90-day comment 
period on the withdrawal extension/expansion application. The lands 
involved in the application are:

action on an application for withdrawal for military purposes under the 
Engle Act (43 U.S.C. 155-158).
    On or before June 25, 2013, 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, Associate 
Deputy State Director, at the address indicated above.
    Comments, including names and street addresses for respondents, 
will be available for public review at the BLM's California State 
Office, during regular business hours, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday 
through Friday, except holidays. Before including your address, 
telephone number, email address, or other personal identifying 
information in your comment, you should be aware that your entire 
comment--including your personal identifying information--may be 
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.
    The BLM will hold a public meeting in connection with the proposed 
withdrawal extension on April 25, 2013, at the BLM's California Desert 
District Office, 22835 Calle San Juan de Los Largos, Moreno Valley, 
California, from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. The BLM will publish a notice of 
the time and place in at least one local newspaper no less than 30 days 
before the scheduled meeting date.
    For a period until March 27, 2015, the additional Federal lands of 
approximately 24,700 acres will be segregated from all forms of 
appropriation under the public land laws, including the United States 
mining laws, and from the operation of the mineral and geothermal 
leasing laws, and the Mineral Materials Act of 1947, unless the 
application is denied or canceled or the withdrawal is approved prior 
to that date.
    Licenses, permits, cooperative agreement, or discretionary land use 
authorizations of a temporary nature which will not significantly 
impact the values to be protected by the withdrawal may be allowed with 
the approval of the authorized officer of the BLM during the temporary 
segregative period.
