SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: 7 CFR part 235—State Administrative Expense Funds. Form Numbers: FNS–74, FNS–525. OMB Number: 0584–0067. Expiration Date: May 31, 2016. Type of Request: Revision of a currently approved collection. Abstract: Section 7 of the Child Nutrition Act of 1966 (Pub. L. 89–642), 42 U.S.C. 1776, authorizes the Department to provide Federal funds to State agencies (SAs) for administering the Child Nutrition Programs (7 CFR parts 210, 215, 220, 226 and 250). State Administrative Expense (SAE) Funds, 7 CFR part 235, sets forth procedures and recordkeeping requirements for use by PO 00000 Frm 00004 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 SAs in reporting and maintaining records of their need and use of SAE funds. A summary of the reporting and recordkeeping burden associated with this revision is presented in the table below. For this revision, the number of State Agencies was updated (decreased from 87 to 84) resulting in a decrease of 321 recordkeeping burden hours. The burden for maintaining accounting records was adjusted to more accurately reflect the average frequency of updating records due to electronic system processing resulting in a decrease of 5,564 recordkeeping hours. The burden of documenting expenditures of funds from State sources in any fiscal year for the administration of CNP is already accounted for in the quarterly recordkeeping for the FNS–777; therefore, the burden for this recordkeeping requirement has been decreased by 856 hours. The burden associated with form FNS–777, Financial Status Report, was removed since the burden for this form has been approved under the information collection for the Food Program Reporting System (FPRS), OMB Control Number 0584–0594, which expires June 30, 2017, resulting in a decrease of 174 reporting hours. The burden associated with form FNS–525, State Administrative Expense Funds Reallocation Report, is proposed for removal and transfer to the FPRS information collection to accommodate electronic reporting of the data resulting in a transfer of 308 reporting hours. These revisions result in a net decrease of 7,223 total burden hours. Revisions to the update form FNS–74, Federal-State Agreement, are also being proposed. The revised FNS–74 form is included in the Supporting Documents to this notice on www.regulations.gov. Affected Public: State Agencies. Estimated Number of Respondents: 84. Estimated Number of Responses per Respondent: 40.297. Estimated Total Annual Responses: 3,385. Estimated Hours per Response: 1.869. Estimated Total Hours Annual Reporting Burden: 315.

ACTION: Notice of intent to prepare a supplemental environmental impact statement. AGENCY: The Grand Mesa, Uncompahgre and Gunnison National Forests (GMUG) is considering whether or not to consent to Bureau of Land Management (BLM) modifying the Federal Coal Leases COC–1362 and COC–67232 by adding 800 and 922 acres, respectively, to them. If the GMUG does consent to lease, it will prescribe conditions (as stipulations) for the protection of non-mineral resources. BLM will, in turn, decide whether or not to grant lease modifications and will further decide, if leased, whether or not to permit on-lease exploration consistent with lease terms. Subsequent mine plan modification activities may be permitted by Office of Surface Mining Reclamation and Enforcement (OSM). Previous GMUG and BLM analyses and decisions were vacated by U.S. District Court for Colorado (1:13–cv– 01723–RBJ) on September 11, 2014 for issues related to econonic analysis on the agencies’ leasing analysis and BLM’s exploration analysis of recreation impacts and a redundant road.

Statement (EIS) is being prepared to correct Court-identified deficiencies and to update analysis, as needed, since the Final EIS in 2012 and BLM’s Environmental Assessment (EA) in 2013. The leasing and exploration analyses will be combined into a single document for agency and public convenience. DATES: Public comments for this project were received April–May, 2010 during the preparation of an EA for the lease modifications, April–May, 2012 on the Notice of Intent to prepare a Draft EIS, June–July, 2012 on the Draft EIS and April–May, 2013 on BLM’s Sunset Trail Area Coal Exploration Plan Environmental Assessment. Comments received during those periods will be also be considered in this analysis and those that were submitted in a timely manner during official comment periods also qualify for standing in future Forest Service objection opportunities (36 CFR 218 Subparts A & B) and BLM appeal periods. These comments have contributed to the issue analysis and alternative development. Additionally, the agency will continue to accept public comments throughout the preparation of the Supplemental Draft EIS, which is estimated to be released in spring 2016 with an additional formal comment period following its release. The Supplemental Final EIS is expected in summer 2016; however, timing of Supplemental Final EIS is subject to reinstatement of the 2012 Colorado Roadless Rule exception for the North Fork Coal Mining Area, which is currently under separate analysis.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Purpose and Need for Action Lease Modifications Under 43 CFR 3432 (as amended by the Energy Policy Act of 2005), the holder of a federal coal lease may apply to modify a lease by adding up to 960 acres. The federal agencies are responding to applications to modify existing leases. The GMUG and BLM have identified the need to consider issuing two coal lease modifications for federal coal lands immediately adjacent to exiting federal coal leases COC–1362 and COC–67232. The purpose of the federal agencies’ actions is to facilitate recovery of federal coal resources in an environmentally sound manner. Further, the purpose of the lease modifications is to ensure that compliant and super-compliant coal reserves are recovered and not bypassed. The proposed action responds to the federal government’s overall policy to foster and encourage private enterprise in the development of economically sound and stable industries, to help assure satisfaction of industrial, security and environmental needs (Mining and Minerals Policy Act of 1970). The BLM, charged with administration of the mineral estate on these Federal lands, is required, by law, to consider leasing Federally-owned minerals for economic recovery.
