The America the Beautiful—National Parks and Federal Recreation Lands Pass Program covers recreation opportunities on public lands managed by four Department of the Interior agencies—the National Park Service, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Bureau of Land Management, and the Bureau of Reclamation—and by the Department of Agriculture’s U.S. Forest Service. The passes provide U.S. citizens and visitors an affordable and convenient way to access Federal recreation lands. Up to 100 percent of the pass program’s proceeds are used to improve and enhance visitor recreation services. Two of the available passes— Interagency Access Pass and Interagency Senior Pass—require documentation and are the bases for this information collection. The Interagency Access Pass is a free, lifetime pass issued to citizens or persons who are domiciled in the United States, regardless of age, and who have a medical determination and documentation of permanent disability. You can obtain an Access Pass in person, with proper documentation, from a participating Federal recreation site or office. Access Passes may also be obtained via mail order. Mail-order applicants for the Access Pass must submit a completed application, proof of residency, and documentation of permanent disability, and pay the document processing fee of $10 to obtain a pass through the mail. If a person arrives at a recreation site and claims eligibility for the Interagency Access Pass, but cannot produce any documentation, that person must read, sign, and date a Statement of Disability Form in the presence of the agency officer issuing the Interagency Access Pass. If the applicant cannot read and/ or sign the form, someone else may read, date, and sign the statement on his/her behalf in the applicant’s presence and in the presence of the agency officer issuing the Interagency Access Pass. The Interagency Senior Pass is a lifetime pass issued to U.S. citizens or permanent residents who are 62 years or Number of respondents Activity Number of annual responses older. There is a $10 fee for the Senior Pass. You can buy a Senior Pass in person from a participating Federal recreation site or office or by mail order. There is an additional document processing fee of $10 to obtain a Senior Pass through the mail. Mail-order applicants must submit a completed application and proof of residency and age, and pay $20 for the pass fee and processing fee. Agency Web sites provide information on the passes and acceptable documentation. All documentation submitted in person or through the mail is returned to the applicant. II.

Abstract. The National Park Service leasing program allows the public to lease property located within the boundaries of the park system, under the authority of the Director of the National Park Service. A lease may not authorize an activity that could be authorized by a concessions contract or commercial use authorization. All leases must provide for the payment of fair market value rent. The Director may retain rental payments for park infrastructure needs and, in some cases, to provide administrative support of the leasing program. Our authority to collect information for the leasing program is derived from section 802 of the National Parks Omnibus Management Act of 1998 (P.L. 105–391), the National Historic Preservation Act (P.L. 89–665), and Title 36, Code of Federal Regulations, section 18 (36 CFR 18). For competitive leasing opportunities, the regulations require the submission of proposals or bids by parties interested in applying for a lease. The regulations also require that the Director approve lease amendments, construction or demolition of structures, and encumbrances on leasehold interests. We collect Information from anyone who wishes to submit a bid or proposal to lease a property. The Director may issue a request for bids if the amount of rent is the only criterion for award of a lease. The Director issues a request for proposals when the award of a lease is based on selection criteria other than the rental rate. A request for proposals may be preceded by a request for qualifications to select a ‘‘short list’’ of potential offerors that meet minimum management, financial, and other qualifications necessary for submission of a proposal. The Director may enter into negotiations for a lease with nonprofit organizations and units of government without soliciting proposals or bids. In those cases, the Director collects information from the other party regarding the planned use of the premises, potential modifications to the premises, and other information as necessary to support a decision on whether or not to enter into a lease.

ACTION: Notice of Availability (NOA) of a Final Environmental Impact Statement (EIS). AGENCY: Consistent with the regulations implementing the National Environmental Policy Act, as amended (42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq.) (NEPA), BOEM has prepared a Final EIS on oil and gas lease sales tentatively scheduled to be held in 2014 and 2016 in the EPA offshore the states of Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and Florida. Under the Outer Continental Shelf Oil & Gas Leasing Program: 2012–2017 (FiveYear Program), two lease sales are scheduled for the EPA. The proposed EPA lease sales are Lease Sales 225 and 226. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This Final EIS provides information on the baseline conditions and potential environmental effects of oil and natural gas leasing, exploration, development, and production in the EPA. The Final EIS incorporates by reference the analysis presented in the Gulf of Mexico OCS Oil and Gas Lease Sales: 2012– 2017; Western Planning Area Lease Sales 229, 233, 238, 246, and 248; Central Planning Area Lease Sales 227, 231, 235, 241, and 247, Final Environmental Impact Statement (2012– 2017 WPA/CPA Multisale EIS; OCS EIS/ EA BOEM 2012–019) and Gulf of Mexico OCS Oil and Gas Lease Sales: 2013–2014; Western Planning Area sroberts on DSK5SPTVN1PROD with FRONT MATTER SUMMARY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 21:08 Oct 21, 2013 Jkt 232001 Lease Sale 233; Central Planning Area Lease Sale 231, Final Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (WPA 233/CPA 231 Supplemental EIS; OCS EIS/EA BOEM 2013–0118). The Final EIS also tiers from the Outer Continental Shelf Oil and Gas Leasing Program: 2012–2017 Final Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement (OCS EIS/EA BOEM 2012–030). Subject matter experts surveyed scientific journals and available scientific data, gathered information, and interviewed personnel from academic institutions and Federal, State, and local government agencies. BOEM has examined the potential impacts of routine activities, potential accidental events, and the incremental contribution of a proposed lease sale to the cumulative impacts on environmental and socioeconomic resources. BOEM conducted an extensive search for new information in consideration of the Deepwater Horizon explosion, oil spill, and response. BOEM has also examined the potential impacts of a low-probability catastrophic event. The oil and gas resource estimates and scenario information for this Final EIS are presented as a range that would encompass the resources and activities estimated for an EPA proposed lease sale. Final EIS Availability: BOEM has printed and will be distributing a limited number of paper copies. In keeping with the Department of the Interior’s mission of the protection of natural resources and to limit costs while ensuring availability of the document to the public, BOEM will primarily distribute digital copies of this Final EIS on compact discs. However, if you require a paper copy, BOEM will provide one upon request if copies are still available. 1.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:
    I. Abstract. The National Park Service leasing program allows the 
public to lease property located within the boundaries of the park

by a concessions contract or commercial use authorization. All leases 
must provide for the payment of fair market value rent. The Director 
may retain rental payments for park infrastructure needs and, in some 
cases, to provide administrative support of the leasing program.
    Our authority to collect information for the leasing program is 
derived from section 802 of the National Parks Omnibus Management Act 
of 1998 (P.L. 105-391), the National Historic Preservation Act (P.L.

submission of proposals or bids by parties interested in applying for a

amendments, construction or demolition of structures, and encumbrances 
on leasehold interests.
    We collect Information from anyone who wishes to submit a bid or 
proposal to lease a property. The Director may issue a request for bids 
if the amount of rent is the only criterion for award of a lease. The 
Director issues a request for proposals when the award of a lease is 
based on selection criteria other than the rental rate. A request for 
proposals may be preceded by a request for qualifications to select a

    The Director may enter into negotiations for a lease with nonprofit

bids. In those cases, the Director collects information from the other 
party regarding the planned use of the premises, potential 
modifications to the premises, and other information as necessary to

    We also collect Information from existing leaseholders who seek to:
     Sublet a leased property or assign the lease to a new 
lessee.
     Construct or demolish portions of a leased property.
     Amend a lease to change the type of activities permitted 
under the lease.
     Encumber (mortgage) the leased premises.

We use the information to evaluate offers, proposed subleases or 
assignments, proposed construction or demolition, the merits of 
proposed lease amendments, and proposed encumbrances. The completion 
times for each information collection requirement vary substantially 
depending on the complexity of the leasing opportunity.
