Certain manufactured homes built and sold by Cavco contained certain Nortek furnace models with the potential for incorrect wiring of circuit breakers used for overcurrent protection of the furnace. After reviewing Cavco’s request, HUD determined that Cavco has shown good cause and granted its request for an extension. The requested extension is granted until July 4, 2016.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The National Manufactured Housing Construction and Safety Standards Act of 1974 (42 U.S.C. 5401–5426) (the Act) authorizes HUD to establish the Federal Manufactured Home Construction and Safety Standards (Construction and Safety Standards), codified in 24 CFR part 3280. Section 615 of the Act (42 U.S.C. 5414) requires that manufacturers of manufactured homes notify purchasers if the manufacturer determines, in good faith, that a defect exists or is likely to exist in more than one home manufactured by the manufacturer and the defect relates to the Construction and Safety Standards or constitutes an imminent safety hazard to the purchaser of the manufactured home. The notification shall also inform purchasers whether the defect is one that the manufacturer will have corrected at no cost or is one that must be corrected at the expense of the purchaser/owner. The manufacturer is responsible to notify purchasers of the defect within a reasonable time after discovering the defect. HUD’s procedural and enforcement provisions at 24 CFR part 3282, subpart I (Subpart I) implement these notification and correction requirements. If a manufacturer determines that it is responsible for providing notification under § 3282.405 and correction under § 3282.406, the manufacturer must prepare a plan for notifying purchasers of the homes containing the defect pursuant to §§ 3282.408 and 3282.409. Notification of purchasers must be accomplished by certified mail or other more expeditious VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:35 Apr 06, 2016 Jkt 238001 means that provides a receipt. Notification must be provided to each retailer or distributor to whom any manufactured home in the class of homes containing the defect was delivered, to the first purchaser of each manufactured home in the class of manufactured homes containing the defect, and to other persons who are a registered owners of a manufactured home in the class of homes containing the defect. The manufacturer must complete the implementation of the plan for notification and correction on or before the deadline approved by the State Administrative Agency or HUD. Pursuant to § 3282.407(c), manufacturers may request a waiver of the notification requirements if all affected homes have been identified and the manufacturer agrees to correct all affected homes within a specific time from the approval date. Under § 3282.410(c), the manufacturer may request an extension of a previously established deadline if it shows good cause for the extension and the Secretary of HUD decides that the extension is justified and not contrary to the public interest. If the request for extension is approved, § 3282.410(c) requires that HUD publish notice of the extension in the Federal Register. On December 31, 2015, Cavco 1 notified HUD and requested a waiver of notification for certain manufactured homes that contained furnaces with circuit breaker wiring labels that if followed, would result in incorrect electrical circuit completion. Specifically, the homes were installed with certain Nortek furnaces, which were subsequently voluntarily identified by Nortek as being affected by its labeling problem. HUD approved Cavco’s request on January 6, 2016. On March 7, 2016, Cavco submitted a request for an extension regarding the completion of corrections required to be completed within 60 days under the HUD approved waiver. Pursuant to its waiver request, Cavco stated that it was working with the furnace manufacturer (Nortek) to correct affected homes in the hands of consumers. Cavco, by letter dated March 7, 2016, requested an extension of 120 days to complete the correction process. This notice advises that HUD on March 7, 2016, concluded that Cavco has shown good cause and that the extension is justified and not contrary to the public interest, and granted the requested extension until July 4, 2016. This extension permits Cavco to continue its good faith efforts to correct affected 1 Information about Cavco Industries can be found at http://www.cavco.com.

ACTION: Notice of realty action. AGENCY: The Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Glennallen Field Office is considering a request by SEND North (SEND) to purchase the Federal Government’s reversionary interest at current Fair Market Value of $210,000 for up to 210 acres of partially developed lands established under the Recreation and Public Purposes Act (R&PP) in Glennallen, Alaska.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In 1961, a 210-acre parcel of Federal land was E:\FR\FM\07APN1.SGM 07APN1 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 67 / Thursday, April 7, 2016 / Notices patented (patent number 1221491) to Central Alaska Missions Inc. (CAM) under the authority of the R&PP Act of June 14, 1926, as amended, 43 U.S.C. 869, et seq. The non-profit CAM came to Glennallen, Alaska in 1957 to assist the Glennallen community and the surrounding area with not-for-profit education, medical, and religious services. In 1963, an additional 2.5 acres was patented (patent number 1232741) under the same authority for the creation of a sewage lagoon to support the medical facility constructed on the previous patented land. The patents were subsequently transferred under provisions of the R&PP Act to the current non-profit SEND North (SEND). The purpose for which the lands can be used is restricted by a reversionary clause in the patents, which returns title to the United States if the tracts are used for other purposes not provided for in the patents. The purpose of the direct sale is to dispose of the reversionary interests in the patented lands which represent certain restrictions and conditions that prevent SEND from using the land for other purposes. The purpose of the renunciation is to release the United States from liability for the sewage treatment lagoon. The parcels proposed for direct sale and renunciation of the reversionary interests are located in the business center of Glennallen, Alaska and consist of two surveyed parcels containing approximately 210 acres and 2.5 acres and are described as: mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Copper River Meridian, Alaska T. 4 N., R. 2 W., Sec. 23, NE1⁄4, SE1⁄4SE1⁄4SE1⁄4SW1⁄4, NW1⁄4NE1⁄4SE1⁄4 and NW1⁄4SE1⁄4. The areas described aggregate 212.50 acres. The purpose of the direct sale and renunciation of the reversionary interests is so the lands, patented to SEND, can be sold, transferred, and/or used for other purposes. The R&PP Act reversionary clause in the patents requires the patents be sold only to those qualified under the R&PP Act and is used only for the purposes allowed under the R&PP Act, or the patented land will revert back to the United States. These parcels of land are located in the business center of Glennallen, which is in a rural part of Alaska. SEND has experienced difficulty in attracting potential buyers because of the reversionary clause in the patents. SEND cannot find a buyer who is interested in the land and who qualifies under the R&PP Act. A direct sale and renunciation of the reversionary interests will allow SEND to sell or transfer the properties to any citizen or organization in the United States and to VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:35 Apr 06, 2016 Jkt 238001 use the lands for any purpose, without the threat of a reversion of the title for breach of patent conditions. This sale and renunciation would reduce the Federal Government’s and the BLM’s liability in relation to both parcels and allow for the merger of property interests to occur. The non-competitive, direct sale and release are consistent with the East Alaska Resource Management Plan approved in September 2007. Authority for the sale and release of the reversionary interests is in conformance with Section 202 of the Federal Land Policy and Management Act (FLPMA) of October 21, 1976, as amended, and Section 203, whereas the Secretary determines that the sale of the parcel meets the following disposal criteria: Such tract is difficult and uneconomic to manage because of its location or other characteristics, such as the subject’s history of use, current level of development, and is neither required nor suitable for management by another Federal department or agency. The lands are being offered for sale and renunciation using direct sale procedures pursuant to 43 CFR 2711.3– 3. The renunciation of the reversionary interest in the 2.5 acres would take place pursuant to 43 CFR 2743.4, as they meet the criteria identified in National BLM Handbook H–2740–1, Chapter X: Solid Waste or Other Purposes That May Include the Disposal, Placement, or Release of a Hazardous Substance. The reversionary interest in this land will be offered by direct sale to SEND at the Fair Market Value (FMV) of $210,000 according to an appraisal report for the 210-acre parcel located in the NE 1⁄4 and SE 1⁄4 of section 23. The 2.5-acre parcel located in the SW 1⁄4 of section 23 containing a sewage lagoon will be renounced without payment by SEND. The appraisal report is available for public review at the BLM Glennallen Field Office at the address above. Upon publication of this notice in the Federal Register, the lands will be segregated from all other forms of appropriation under the public land laws, including the general mining laws, except for lease under the R&PP Act, leasing under the mineral leasing laws, and disposals under the mineral material disposal laws. Upon completion of this action, the identified parcels would no longer be subject to having title revert to the Federal Government under the R&PP Act as described in patents 1221491 and 1232741. All other terms and conditions of these patents will apply. The direct sale and renunciation of the reversionary interest of these lands will PO 00000 Frm 00095 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 20413 be made subject to the provisions of FLPMA, the applicable regulations of the Secretary of the Interior, all valid existing rights, and the following reservations: 1.

All minerals, together with the right to prospect for, mine, and remove such deposits from the same under applicable law and such regulations as the Secretary of the Interior may prescribe. 3. Valid existing rights.

Patentee shall stipulate that it will be solely responsible for compliance with all applicable Federal, State, and local environmental and regulatory provisions, throughout the life of the facilities, including any closure and/or post-closure requirements that may be imposed with respect to any physical plant and/or facilities upon the land involved under any Federal, State, or local environmental laws or regulatory provisions.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In 1961, a 210-acre parcel of Federal land 
was

[[Page 20413]]

patented (patent number 1221491) to Central Alaska Missions Inc. (CAM) 
under the authority of the R&PP Act of June 14, 1926, as amended, 43 
U.S.C. 869, et seq. The non-profit CAM came to Glennallen, Alaska in 
1957 to assist the Glennallen community and the surrounding area with 
not-for-profit education, medical, and religious services. In 1963, an 
additional 2.5 acres was patented (patent number 1232741) under the 
same authority for the creation of a sewage lagoon to support the 
medical facility constructed on the previous patented land. The patents 
were subsequently transferred under provisions of the R&PP Act to the 
current non-profit SEND North (SEND).
    The purpose for which the lands can be used is restricted by a 
reversionary clause in the patents, which returns title to the United 
States if the tracts are used for other purposes not provided for in 
the patents. The purpose of the direct sale is to dispose of the 
reversionary interests in the patented lands which represent certain 
restrictions and conditions that prevent SEND from using the land for 
other purposes. The purpose of the renunciation is to release the 
United States from liability for the sewage treatment lagoon. The 
parcels proposed for direct sale and renunciation of the reversionary 
interests are located in the business center of Glennallen, Alaska and 
consist of two surveyed parcels containing approximately 210 acres and 
2.5 acres and are described as:

Copper River Meridian, Alaska

T. 4 N., R. 2 W.,
    Sec. 23, NE\1/4\, SE\1/4\SE\1/4\SE\1/4\SW\1/4\, NW\1/4\NE\1/
4\SE\1/4\ and NW\1/4\SE\1/4\.
    The areas described aggregate 212.50 acres.

    The purpose of the direct sale and renunciation of the reversionary 
interests is so the lands, patented to SEND, can be sold, transferred, 
and/or used for other purposes. The R&PP Act reversionary clause in the 
patents requires the patents be sold only to those qualified under the 
R&PP Act and is used only for the purposes allowed under the R&PP Act, 
or the patented land will revert back to the United States. These 
parcels of land are located in the business center of Glennallen, which 
is in a rural part of Alaska. SEND has experienced difficulty in 
attracting potential buyers because of the reversionary clause in the 
patents. SEND cannot find a buyer who is interested in the land and who 
qualifies under the R&PP Act. A direct sale and renunciation of the 
reversionary interests will allow SEND to sell or transfer the 
properties to any citizen or organization in the United States and to 
use the lands for any purpose, without the threat of a reversion of the 
title for breach of patent conditions. This sale and renunciation would 
reduce the Federal Government's and the BLM's liability in relation to 
both parcels and allow for the merger of property interests to occur.
    The non-competitive, direct sale and release are consistent with 
the East Alaska Resource Management Plan approved in September 2007. 
Authority for the sale and release of the reversionary interests is in 
conformance with Section 202 of the Federal Land Policy and Management 
Act (FLPMA) of October 21, 1976, as amended, and Section 203, whereas 
the Secretary determines that the sale of the parcel meets the 
following disposal criteria: Such tract is difficult and uneconomic to 
manage because of its location or other characteristics, such as the 
subject's history of use, current level of development, and is neither 
required nor suitable for management by another Federal department or 
agency. The lands are being offered for sale and renunciation using 
direct sale procedures pursuant to 43 CFR 2711.3-3. The renunciation of 
the reversionary interest in the 2.5 acres would take place pursuant to 
43 CFR 2743.4, as they meet the criteria identified in National BLM 
Handbook H-2740-1, Chapter X: Solid Waste or Other Purposes That May 
Include the Disposal, Placement, or Release of a Hazardous Substance. 
The reversionary interest in this land will be offered by direct sale 
to SEND at the Fair Market Value (FMV) of $210,000 according to an 
appraisal report for the 210-acre parcel located in the NE \1/4\ and SE 
\1/4\ of section 23. The 2.5-acre parcel located in the SW \1/4\ of 
section 23 containing a sewage lagoon will be renounced without payment 
by SEND. The appraisal report is available for public review at the BLM 
Glennallen Field Office at the address above.
    Upon publication of this notice in the Federal Register, the lands 
will be segregated from all other forms of appropriation under the 
public land laws, including the general mining laws, except for lease 
under the R&PP Act, leasing under the mineral leasing laws, and 
disposals under the mineral material disposal laws.
    Upon completion of this action, the identified parcels would no 
longer be subject to having title revert to the Federal Government 
under the R&PP Act as described in patents 1221491 and 1232741. All 
other terms and conditions of these patents will apply. The direct sale 
and renunciation of the reversionary interest of these lands will be 
made subject to the provisions of FLPMA, the applicable regulations of 
the Secretary of the Interior, all valid existing rights, and the 
following reservations:
    1. A right-of-way thereon for ditches or canals constructed by the 
authority of the United States, Act of August 30, 1890 (43 U.S.C. 945); 
and
    2. All minerals, together with the right to prospect for, mine, and 
remove such deposits from the same under applicable law and such 
regulations as the Secretary of the Interior may prescribe.
    3. Valid existing rights.
    The purchaser, by, respectively, purchasing the reversionary 
interests, and accepting the renunciation of the interests of the 
United States agrees to indemnify, defend, and hold the United States, 
its officers, agents or employees harmless from any costs, damages, 
claims, causes of action, penalties, fines, liabilities, and judgments 
of any kind arising from the past, present or future acts or omissions 
of the purchaser, its employees, agents, contractors, or lessees, or 
third-party arising out of or in connection with the purchaser's 
acceptance of the aforementioned release or purchaser's use and/or 
occupancy of the land involved resulting in: (1) Violations of Federal, 
State, and local laws and regulations that are now, or in the future 
become, applicable to real property; (2) judgments, claims or demands 
of any kind assessed against the United States; (3) Cost, expenses, or 
damages of any kind incurred by the United States; (4) Releases or 
threatened releases of solid or hazardous waste(s) and/or hazardous 
substances(s), as defined by Federal or State environmental laws, off, 
on, into or under land, property, and other interests of the United 
States; (5) Other activities by which solids or hazardous substances or 
wastes, as defined by Federal and State environmental laws are 
generated, released, stored, used, or otherwise disposed of on the land 
involved, and any cleanup, response, remedial action or other actions 
related in any manner to said solid or hazardous substances or wastes; 
or (6) Natural resource damages as defined by Federal and State law. 
Patentee shall stipulate that it will be solely responsible for 
compliance with all applicable Federal, State, and local environmental 
and regulatory provisions, throughout the life of the facilities, 
including any closure and/or post-closure requirements that may be 
imposed with respect to any physical plant and/or facilities upon the 
land involved under any Federal, State, or local environmental laws or

construed as running with the land and may be enforced by the United 
States in a court of competent jurisdiction.
    No warranty of any kind, express or implied, is given by the United 
States in connection with the sale or release of the reversionary 
interest. The documentation for land use conformance, National 
Environmental Policy Act procedures, a map, and the approved appraisal 
report covering the proposed sale, are available for review at the BLM 
Glennallen Field Office at the address listed above.
    Classification Comments: Interested persons may submit comments on 
the non-competitive, direct sale, renunciation, and conveyance of the 
reversionary interests in these public lands. Comments on the 
classification is restricted to whether the lands are physically suited 
for the sale, renunciation, and conveyance, whether the use will 
maximize the future use or uses of the land, whether the use is 
consistent with local planning and zoning, or if the use is consistent 
with State and Federal programs.
    Interested persons may submit comments regarding the non-
competitive, direct sale and renunciation of the reversionary interests 
and conveyance of reversionary interests, and whether the BLM followed 
proper administrative procedures in reaching the decision for the 
direct sale or renunciation of these reversionary interests.
    Only written comments submitted by postal service or overnight mail 
to the Field Manager, BLM Glennallen Field Office, will be considered 
properly filed. Electronic mail, facsimile, or telephone comments will 
not be considered properly filed.
    Before including your address, phone number, email address, or 
other personal identifying information in your comment, you should be 
aware that your entire comment--including your personal identifying 
information--may be made publicly available at any time. While you can 
ask us in your comment to withhold your personal identifying 
information from public review, we cannot guarantee that we will be 
able to do so.
    Any adverse comments will be reviewed by the BLM Alaska State 
Director, who may sustain, vacate, or modify these realty actions. In 
the absence of any adverse comments, the decision will become effective 
May 9, 2016. The reversionary interests will not be offered for sale or 
renounced until after the decision becomes effective.
