As proposed, target shooting would be prohibited within these areas—which vary from less than 0.1 acres to approximately 400 acres—and include developed campgrounds, small day use areas, small rocks and islands, structural cultural sites (including lighthouses), and sensitive archaeological sites. The proposed closure would help protect the cultural objects and values for which the Monument was designated, and provide for public safety at small, recreational sites. The proposed closure would ensure that irreplaceable archaeological resources and structural cultural sites would not inadvertently, or purposefully, be damaged by target shooting activities in the Monument. In addition, the proposed closure would enhance the safety of the public visiting sites in the Monument, which would improve their experience. In accordance with John D. Dingell, Jr. Conservation, Management, and Recreation Act of 2019 (Dingell Act, Pub. L. 116–9, Section 4103), the BLM is announcing the opening of a 60-day public comment period on the proposed target shooting closure. During this time-period, the BLM is only accepting comments on the proposed target shooting closure. All comments must be received by January 21, 2020 and must be submitted using one of the methods listed in the ADDRESSES section, above. All protests must be in writing and submitted as set forth in the DATES and ADDRESSES sections, above. The BLM Director will render a written decision on each protest. The decision will be mailed to the protesting party. The decision of the BLM Director shall be the final decision of the Department of the Interior on each protest. Responses to protest issues will be compiled and formalized in a Director’s Protest Resolution Report made available following issuance of the decisions. Upon resolution of all protests, the BLM will issue a Record of Decision and Approved RMP. 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.

Abstract: The National Underground Railroad Network to Freedom Act of 1998 (54 U.S.C. 308301, et seq.) authorizes the NPS to collect information from applicants requesting to join the Network to Freedom Program (the Network). The NPS uses this information to evaluate potential participants and to coordinate the preservation and education efforts nationwide that integrate local historical places, museums, and interpretive programs associated with the Underground Railroad into a mosaic of community, regional, and national stories. All entities that apply to join the Network must have a verifiable association with the historic Underground Railroad movement and complete NPS Form 10–946, ‘‘National E:\FR\FM\22NON1.SGM 22NON1 64560 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 226 / Friday, November 22, 2019 / Notices Underground Railroad Network to Freedom Application,’’ available on our website at http://www.nps.gov/subjects/ ugrr/index.htm. Respondents must (1) verify associations and characteristics through descriptive texts that are the result of historical research and (2) submit supporting documentation; e.g., copies of rare documents, photographs, and maps. The majority of the information is submitted in electronic format and used to determine eligibility to become part of the Network.
