National Advisory Committee for Implementation of the National Forest System Land Management Planning Rule, 34034-34035 [2013-13452]

Download as PDF 34034 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 109 / Thursday, June 6, 2013 / Notices All comments received were considered in development of the interim directive. The Agency received four comments from two tribes with interests in National Forest System land in the Southwestern, Pacific Southwest and Intermountain West regions. One comment noted the directive lacked emphasis on protection of heritage resources and cultural values. Two comments addressed the 500 acre minimum size limit for assessment and suggested that there should be an exception if cultural resources were affected. One comment stated that there was no provision for Tribal consultation and that tribes should be involved in the BAER process, especially if cultural sites are in the project area. These comments all resulted in changes incorporated into the interim directive. The Agency has also determined that this interim directive does not impose substantial direct compliance costs on Indian tribal governments nor does it mandate tribal participation. Instead, it provides guidance to authorized officers to consult with affected tribes to assist in identifying critical cultural resources, and it seeks to ensure emergency stabilization actions do not negatively affect cultural resources. Energy Effects The Agency has reviewed the interim directive under E.O. 13211 of May 18, 2001, ‘‘Actions Concerning Regulations That Significantly Affect Energy Supply, Distribution, or Use.’’ The Agency has determined that the directive does not constitute a significant energy action as defined in the Executive Order. Controlling Paperwork Burdens on the Public The interim directive does not contain any additional record-keeping or reporting requirements or other information collection requirements as defined in 5 CFR part 1320 that are not already required by law or not already approved for use and therefore imposes no additional paperwork burden on the public Accordingly, the review provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.) and its implementing regulations at 5 CFR part 1320 do not apply. Dated: May 31, 2013. Thomas L. Tidwell, Chief, Forest Service. [FR Doc. 2013–13459 Filed 6–5–13; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 3410–11–P No Taking Implications DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE The Agency has analyzed the interim directive in accordance with the principles and criteria contained in E.O. 12630. The Agency has determined that the directive does not pose the risk of a taking of private property. Forest Service Civil Justice Reform AGENCY: The interim directive has been reviewed under E.O. 12988 of February 7, 1996, ‘‘Civil Justice Reform’’. At the time of adoption of this directive, (1) all state and local laws and regulations that conflicts with this directive or that impede full implementation of this directive were preempted; (2) no retroactive effect was given to the directive; and (3) administrative proceedings are not required before parties can file suit in court to challenge its provisions. mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Unfunded Mandates Pursuant to Title II of the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995, (2 U.S.C. 1531–1538), the Agency has assessed the effects of the interim directive on State, local, and Tribal governments and the private sector. The directive will not compel the expenditure of $100 million or more by any State, local, or tribal government or anyone in the private sector. Therefore, a statement under section 202 of the act is not required.
