Cooperating Agency: BOEM invites qualified government entities, such as other Federal Agencies, State, Tribal, and local governments, to consider becoming cooperating agencies for the preparation of Lease Sale 244 EIS. Following the guidelines at 40 CFR 1501.6 and 1508.5 from the Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ), qualified agencies and governments are those with ‘‘jurisdiction by law or special expertise.’’ Potential cooperating agencies should consider their authority and capacity to assume the responsibilities of a cooperating agency and remember that an agency’s role in VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:52 Oct 22, 2014 Jkt 235001 the environmental analysis neither enlarges nor diminishes the final decision-making authority of any other agency involved in the NEPA process. Upon request, BOEM will provide potential cooperating agencies with a written summary of guidelines for cooperating agencies, including time schedules and critical action dates, milestones, responsibilities, scope and detail of cooperating agencies’ contributions, and availability of predecisional information. BOEM anticipates this summary will form the basis for a Memorandum of Understanding between BOEM and any cooperating agency. BOEM, as the lead agency, will not provide financial assistance to cooperating agencies. In addition to becoming a cooperating agency, other opportunities will exist to provide information and comments to BOEM during the public comment period for the EIS. For additional information about cooperating agencies, please contact Michael Rolland, Regional Supervisor, BOEM, at telephone (907) 334–5271. Authority: This notice of intent is published pursuant to the regulation at 40 CFR 1501.7 implementing the provisions of NEPA. Walter D.
