The proposed project is located in the Town of Thompson, New York, just off State Route 17 (future I–86). The proposed project includes the development of a 350,000 sf gaming facility and a 750-room hotel. The gaming facility would include a casino floor, food and beverage areas (consisting of a buffet, specialty restaurant, bar and coffee bar type facilities), meeting space, guest support services, offices and security area. A multipurpose/event center would cater to 2,700 visitors. Access to the casino would be provided from State Route 17 to County Highway 161. The FEIS considers a range of project alternatives, including: (1) Preferred casino-hotel complex; (2) reduced casino size; (3) alternative financial ventures; (4) different site locations; (5) different site plans and (5) no action. The preferred casino-hotel complex alternative has been selected as the Tribe’s Preferred Alternative as discussed in the FEIS. The information and analysis contained in the FEIS, as well as its evaluation and assessment of the Tribe’s Preferred Alternative, are intended to assist the Department of the Interior (Department) in its review of the issues presented in the Tribe’s application. The Preferred Alternative does not necessarily reflect the Department’s final decision because the Department must further evaluate all of the criteria listed in 25 CFR part 151 and 25 CFR part 292. The Department’s consideration and analysis of the applicable regulations may lead to a final decision that selects an alternative other than the Preferred Alternative, including no action, or a variant of the Preferred Alternative or another one of the alternatives analyzed in the FEIS. Environmental issues addressed in the FEIS include land and water resources, air quality, biological resources, cultural and paleontological resources, socioeconomic conditions, transportation and circulation, land use, public services, noise, hazardous materials, visual resources, environmental justice, cumulative effects, indirect effects and mitigation. The BIA has afforded other government agencies and the public extensive opportunity to participate in the preparation of this EIS. The BIA published a Notice of Intent (NOI) to prepare the EIS for the proposed action in the Federal Register on November 20, 2003 (68 FR 65467). The BIA held a public scoping meeting on December 4, 2003. A Notice of Availability for the VerDate Mar<15>2010 22:25 Jan 30, 2014 Jkt 232001 Draft EIS (DEIS) was published in the Federal Register on February 11, 2005 (70 FR 7257). The DEIS was available for public comment until March 28, 2005. The BIA held a public hearing on the DEIS on March 10, 2005. An FEIS, which contained updated analyses in response to public comment, was prepared and submitted to the BIA in November 2006. That FEIS was not released because the underlying land-totrust application was denied in January 2008. Despite a Notice of Cancellation on March 6, 2008 (73 FR 12204), the environmental review process remained open and was reactivated when the land-into-trust application was reinstated by the BIA in August 2011. That 2006 FEIS was updated based on the passage of time, and the updated FEIS document is now being released for circulation to the public.

Notice of Intent. AGENCY: ACTION: The original Notice of Intent to prepare the Trail Management Plan was published in the Federal Register on January 16, 2003, with an estimated completion date of 2004 for the joint EIS/EIR. The National Park Service (NPS) and state of California partner agencies conducted public scoping meetings in 2005 and gathered public comments on conceptual trail policies and map alternatives needed to prepare the Draft EIS/EIR. Owing to lack of funding, the NPS and partner agencies were unable to continue preparation of the EIS/EIR after the 2005 public scoping effort.

    The Snoqualmie Indian Tribe's Liquor Control Ordinance shall read 
as follows:

SECTION 1.0--INTRODUCTION

1.1 Title

    This Chapter shall be known as the ``Snoqualmie Tribal Liquor 
Control Ordinance'' and shall be codified as Title 8, Chapter 3 of the 
Snoqualmie Tribal Code.

1.2 Authority

    This Ordinance is enacted pursuant to the Act of August 15, 1953, 
67 Stat. 586, codified at 18 U.S.C. 1161, by the authority of the 
Snoqualmie Tribal Council enumerated in Article VIII of the 
Constitution of the Snoqualmie Tribe of Indians, and in conformity with 
applicable Washington State laws and all attendant agreements with the 
State of Washington.

1.3 Purpose

    The purpose of this Ordinance is to regulate and control the 
possession and sale of liquor on the Snoqualmie Tribe's trust land. The 
enactment of this Ordinance governing liquor possession and sale on the 
Snoqualmie Tribe's trust land will increase the ability of the 
Snoqualmie Tribal Council to control the sale, distribution and 
possession of liquor on the Snoqualmie Tribe's trust land and will 
provide an important source of revenue for the continued operation and 
strengthening of the Snoqualmie tribal government and the delivery of 
tribal government services.

1.4 Effective Date

    This Ordinance shalt be effective upon certification by the 
Secretary of the Interior and its publication in the Federal Register.

SECTION 2.0--DECLARATION OF PUBLIC POLICY AND PURPOSE

    (a) The introduction possession and sale of liquor on the trust 
land is a matter of special concern to the Tribe.
    (b) Federal law currently prohibits the introduction of liquor into 
Indian Country (18 U.S.C. 1154), except as provided therein and 
expressly delegates to tribes the decision regarding when and to what 
extent liquor transactions shall be permitted (18 U.S.C. 1161).
    (c) The Tribal Council recognizes that a need still exists for 
strict tribal regulation and control over liquor transactions within 
trust land because of the many potential problems associated with the 
unregulated or inadequately regulated sale, possession, distribution, 
and consumption of liquor. The Tribal Council finds that tribal control 
and regulation of liquor is necessary to achieve maximum economic 
benefit to the Tribe, to protect the health and welfare of tribal 
members, and to address specific concerns relating to alcohol use on 
the trust land.
    (d) It is in the best interests of the Tribe to enact an ordinance 
governing liquor sales on trust land. Further, the Tribe has determined 
that the purchase, distribution and sale of liquor shall take place 
only at tribally-owned enterprises and/or tribally licensed 
establishments operating on trust land.

boundaries of trust land may only be made at businesses at designated 
Public Places which hold a tribal liquor license. Persons in possession

3.2 Sales for Cash

    All liquor sales within the trust land boundaries shall be on a

3.3 Sale for Personal Consumption

    All sales shall be for the personal use and consumption of the 
purchaser. Resale of any alcoholic beverage purchased within the 
exterior boundaries of the Trust Land is prohibited. Any person who is

SECTION 4.0--LICENSING

4.1 Procedure

    In order to control the proliferation of establishments on the

all persons or entities which desire to sell liquor within the exterior 
boundaries of the trust land must apply to the Tribe for a license to 
sell or serve liquor. Persons in possession of valid liquor licenses 
issued by the State of Washington who apply for a tribal license may 
continue to operate under a Washington State license until such time as 
the application for a tribal license has been either approved or 
denied.

4.2 Application

the Tribal Council, for this purpose. The application must be filled 
out completely in order to be considered.

4.3 Issuance License

    Each license may be issued for a period not to exceed two (2) years 
from the date of issuance.

4.5 Renewal of License

    A licensee may renew its license if the licensee has complied in 
full with this Ordinance; provided, however, that the Alcohol Beverage 
Control Office or, in the absence thereof, the Tribal Council may

best interests of the health, safety and welfare of the Tribe and its 
members.

[[Page 5454]]

4.6 Revocation of License

    The Alcohol Beverage Control Office or, in the absence thereof, the
