The DOI (represented by the FWS), the DOC (represented by the NOAA), the Nottawaseppi Huron Band of the Potawatomi Tribe, the Match-E-BeNash-She-Wish Band of the Pottawatomi Indians, and the State of Michigan (the latter acting through MDEQ, MDNR, and MDAG) are Trustees for natural resources considered in this Draft Plan, pursuant to subpart G of the National Oil and Hazardous Substances Pollution Contingency Plan (40 CFR 300.600, 300.605, and 300.610) and Executive Order 12580. The Trustees followed the NRDAR regulations found at 15 CFR part 990 and the NEPA regulations found at 40 CFR parts 1500– 1508 for the development of the Draft Plan. The Trustees will consider all public comments received during the public comment as we proceed to finalize the Draft Plan. The Draft Plan will be finalized prior to implementation of restoration. Any significant additions or modifications to the Final Plan that become necessary as restoration actions proceed will be made available for public review before any changes in restoration actions are undertaken. mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Background The goal of NRDAR under the Oil Pollution Act of 1990 (33 U.S.C. 2701 et seq.; OPA) is to make the environment and public whole for injuries to natural resources and natural resource services resulting from incidents involving discharge or substantial threat of discharge of oil. This goal is achieved through returning injured natural resources and services to baseline and compensating for interim losses of such natural resources and services through the restoration, rehabilitation, replacement, or acquisition of equivalent natural resources and/or services. Process In this case, the Trustees worked together in a cooperative process to identify appropriate restoration activities to address natural resource injuries caused by discharges of oil from Enbridge’s Line 6B pipeline near Marshall, Michigan. The results of this administrative process are contained in the Draft Plan, which is a planning and decision document being published for public review under OPA and NEPA. The Draft Plan describes the injuries that occurred as a result of the discharges of oil, how the Trustees estimated damages, how those damages will be addressed through proposed restoration alternatives, and what the VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:05 Jun 11, 2015 Jkt 235001 expected environmental impacts of the proposed projects would be. By law, natural resource damages received must be used to restore, rehabilitate, replace, and/or acquire the equivalent of those injured natural resources. Public Involvement Interested members of the public are invited to review and comment on the Plan. Copies can be requested from the address and Web site listed above. Comments on the Draft Plan should be sent to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (see ADDRESSES). The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service will provide copies of all comments to the other Trustees. All comments received from individuals become part of the official public record. Requests for such comments will be handled in accordance with the Freedom of Information Act and the Council on Environmental Quality’s NEPA regulations (40 CFR 1506.6(f)). Availability of Public Comments The Trustees’ practice is to make comments, including names and home addresses of respondents, available for public review during regular business hours. Before including your address, phone number, email address, or other personal identifying information in your comment, you should be aware that the entire comment, including your personal identifying information, may be available at any time. While individual respondents may request that the Fish and Wildlife Service withhold their personal identifying information from public review, we cannot guarantee we will be able to do so.

Title This Code shall be the Liquor Code of the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation (Confederated Tribes) and shall be referenced as the Liquor Code. SECTION 1.02. Findings And Purpose A. The introduction, possession, and sale of liquor on Indian reservations has historically been recognized as a matter of special concern to Indian tribes and to the United States. The control of liquor on the Umatilla Indian Reservation remains exclusively subject to the legislative enactments of the Confederated Tribes in its exercise of its PO 00000 Frm 00069 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 33543 governmental powers over the Reservation, and the United States. B. Federal law prohibits the introduction of liquor into Indian Country (18 U.S.C. 1154), and authorized tribes to decide when and to what extent liquor transactions, sales, possession and service shall be permitted on their reservation (18 U.S.C. 1161). C. The Board of Trustees, as the governing body of the Confederated Tribes pursuant to Article VI, § 1 of the Constitution and Bylaws of the Confederated Tribes, have adopted Resolutions to permit the sale and service of liquor at the Wildhorse Resort & Casino and at Coyote Business Park as provided in this Code, but at no other locations. D. Pursuant to the authority in Article VI, § 1(a) of the Confederated Tribes’ Constitution, the Board of Trustees has the authority ‘‘to represent the [Confederated] Tribes and to negotiate with the Federal, State and local governments on projects and legislation that affect the [Confederated] Tribes’’. E. Pursuant to the authority in Article VI, § 1(d) of the Confederated Tribes’ Constitution, the Board of Trustees has the authority ‘‘to promulgate and enforce ordinances governing the conduct of all persons and activities within the boundaries of the Umatilla Indian Reservation, providing for the procedure of the Board of Trustees, and carrying out any powers herein conferred upon the Board of Trustees’’. F. The enactment of this Liquor Code to govern liquor sales and service on the Umatilla Indian Reservation will increase the ability of the Confederated Tribes to control Reservation liquor distribution, sales, service and possession, and at the same time will provide an important source of revenue for the continued operation of Tribal government and the delivery of governmental services, as well as provide an amenity to customers of enterprises of the Confederated Tribes. G. The Confederated Tribes have entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Oregon Liquor Control Commission to deal with governmental issues associated with the licensing and regulation of liquor sales on the Umatilla Indian Reservation. SECTION 1.03. Definitions A. Unless otherwise required by the context, the following words and phrases shall have the designated meanings. 1. ‘‘Alcohol’’.
