Indian Gaming; Amendment to Class III Gaming Procedures for the Mashantucket Pequot Tribe, 11122 [2019-05683]

Download as PDF 11122 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 57 / Monday, March 25, 2019 / Notices for unavoidable loss of suitable upland habitat by the funding of an appropriate mitigation project through a Serviceapproved third party mitigation and conservation account. Preliminary Determinations The Service has made preliminary determinations that issuance of these incidental take permits is neither a major Federal action that will significantly affect the quality of the human environment within the meaning of section 102(2)(C) of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA; 42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq.), nor will they individually or cumulatively have more than a negligible effect on the species covered in the HCPs. The Service considers the impacts of the La Laguna Los Alamos Project on the California tiger salamander to be minor, as the project includes the permanent protection of 34 acres of suitable, highquality habitat in a conservation easement. The Service considers the impacts of the Phillips 66 Idle Pipeline 352×4 Abandonment Project on the California tiger salamander to be minor, as the affected area is small (approximately 1.22 acres) and of low habitat quality. Therefore, based on this preliminary determination, both permits qualify for a categorical exclusion under NEPA. Public Comments If you wish to comment on the permit applications, draft HCPs, or associated documents, you may submit comments by one of the methods in ADDRESSES. 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.

ACTION: Rescindment of a system of records notice. AGENCY: The Department of the Interior, Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement is issuing a public notice of its intent to rescind the Privacy Act system of records notice, INTERIOR/MMS–12, Lessee/Operator Training Files from its existing inventory. The Lessee/Operator Training Files system of records was managed by the former Minerals Management Service in accordance with the Well Control and Production Safety Training regulation. Under this regulation, the Minerals Management Service accredited institutions to train lessee and operator personnel and to certify that they were competent and safe to work on the Outer Continental Shelf. Revisions to the regulation in October 2000 eliminated requirements for the Minerals Management Service to accredit institutions and for those institutions to provide copies of training certificates on individuals to the Minerals Management Service. The materials associated with these eliminated requirements were the subject matter of the relevant system of records. Subsequently, upon the dissolution of the Minerals Management Service, the responsibility for this system of records was transferred to the Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement, which is now formally rescinding the INTERIOR/MMS–12, Lessee/Operator Training Files system of records notice.
