SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On January 6, 2015, the Decision Record authorizing the BITD Parker Races SRP was signed. This permit authorizes the BITD to utilize the Parker 400 course for the Parker 250 race event on January 11 through 12, 2020, and for the Parker 425 race event on January 24 through 25, 2020. The permit is authorized from 2015 through 2024. The Environmental Assessment analyzing these routes (EA #DOI–BLM–AZ–C030–2014–0040) concluded that allowing permitted motorized racers exclusive use of the Lake Havasu Field Office Record of Decision/Approved Resource Management Plan (2007) designated Parker 400 course would mitigate safety concerns. These routes receive the most intense and concentrated high-speed use during the two annual permitted events. These temporary closures and restrictions affect public lands in and around the Parker 400 course near the communities of Parker and Bouse in La Paz County, Arizona. The temporary restriction area begins on public lands east of the eastern boundary of the Colorado River Indian Tribe (CRIT) Reservation, along Shea Road, then east into Osborne Wash onto the ParkerSwansea Road to the Central Arizona Project (CAP) Canal, then north on the west side of the CAP Canal, crossing the canal on the county-maintained road, running northeast into Mineral Wash Canyon, then southeast on the countymaintained road, through the fourcorners intersection to the Midway (Pit) intersection, then east on Transmission Pass Road, through State Trust Land located in Butler Valley, turning north into Cunningham Wash to North Tank; continuing south to Transmission Pass Road and east (reentering public land) within two miles of Alamo Dam Road. The temporary restriction area boundary PO 00000 Frm 00110 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 71457 turns south and west onto the wooden power line road, onto the State Trust Land in Butler Valley, turning southwest into Cunningham Wash to the Graham Well, intersecting Butler Valley Road, then north and west on the county-maintained road to the ‘‘Bouse Y’’ intersection, two miles north of Bouse, Arizona. The temporary restriction area boundary proceeds north, paralleling the Bouse-Swansea Road to the Midway (Pit) intersection, then west along the north boundary (power line) road of the East Cactus Plain Wilderness Area to ParkerSwansea Road. The temporary restriction area boundary turns west into Osborne Wash crossing the CAP Canal, along the north boundary of the Cactus Plain Wilderness Study Area; it continues west staying in Osborne Wash and crossing Shea Road along the southern boundary of Gibraltar Wilderness, rejoining Osborne Wash at the CRIT Reservation boundary. The closure area follows the Parker 400 course as designated in the 2007 Lake Havasu Resource Management Plan. The temporary closures and restrictions are necessary because of the high speed nature of the race event and the added safety concerns due to the limited visibility when there is no daylight. Roads leading into the public lands under the temporary closure and restrictions will be posted with copies of the temporary closure, temporary restrictions, and associated maps to notify the public. The temporary closure and restriction orders will be posted in the Lake Havasu Field Office and online at https://www.blm.gov/office/lakehavasu-field-office. Maps of the affected area and other documents associated with this temporary closure are available at the Lake Havasu Field Office, 1785 Kiowa Avenue, Lake Havasu City, Arizona. The closures and restrictions are issued under the authority of 43 CFR 8364.1 which allows the BLM to establish closures for the protection of persons, property, and public lands and resources. Violation of any of the terms, conditions, or restrictions contained within this closure order may subject the violator to citation or arrest with a penalty or fine or imprisonment or both as specified by law.

Background The Department of the Interior (DOI), Bureau of Reclamation (Reclamation) maintains the ‘‘INTERIOR/WBR–12, Inventions and Patents’’ system of records. The purpose of this system is to administer an internal program to manage and track applications for inventions and patents submitted by Federal employees, individuals, and organizations (i.e., businesses, state and local governments, universities, nongovernmental organizations), who have submitted a report of invention to Reclamation or employees who are seeking to file and secure patents. Inventions may be developed solely by Reclamation employees or jointly with other Federal and/or other entities. The primary use of this system is to determine an inventor’s rights to an invention, whether to file and secure a patent application for the invention, and PO 00000 Frm 00112 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 71459 to distribute a share of royalties for licensed inventions. Reclamation inventors may receive monetary awards for filing the patent application and issuing the patent. The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office issues a patent for 20 years and patent maintenance fees are paid at specific time periods to maintain the patent at the discretion of the Chief, Research and Development, Bureau of Reclamation. Reclamation inventors who have assigned their patent rights to DOI may receive a share of royalty payments from Reclamation. Reclamation is publishing this revised notice to update authorities for this system, update categories of individuals and categories of records to reflect the expanded scope of the system, and provide general and administrative updates to all sections in accordance with the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Circular A–108, ‘‘Federal Agency Responsibilities for Review, Reporting, and Publication under the Privacy Act.’’ Additionally, Reclamation is modifying existing routine uses to provide additional clarity and transparency. Routine use A was modified to further clarify disclosures to the Department of Justice or other Federal agencies when necessary in relation to litigation or judicial proceedings. Routine uses B, D, and E have been modified to provide additional clarification on external organizations and circumstances where disclosures are compatible with the purpose of the system or are proper and necessary to administer an internal program to manage and track applications for inventions and patents submitted by Federal employees, individuals, and organizations (i.e., businesses, state and local governments, universities, non-governmental organizations) who have submitted a report of invention to Reclamation and/ or employees who are seeking to file and secure patents. Modified routine use J and proposed routine use K allow Reclamation to share information with appropriate Federal agencies or entities when reasonably necessary to respond to a breach of personally identifiable information and to prevent, minimize, or remedy the risk of harm to individuals or the Federal Government, or assist an agency in locating individuals affected by a breach in accordance with OMB Memorandum M–17–12, ‘‘Preparing for and Responding to a Breach of Personally Identifiable Information’’. Proposed new routine uses C, F, G, H, I, and L through P facilitate sharing of information with agencies and organizations to ensure the efficient E:\FR\FM\27DEN1.SGM 27DEN1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On January 6, 2015, the Decision Record 
authorizing the BITD Parker Races SRP was signed. This permit 
authorizes the BITD to utilize the Parker 400 course for the Parker 250 
race event on January 11 through 12, 2020, and for the Parker 425 race 
event on January 24 through 25, 2020. The permit is authorized from 
2015 through 2024. The Environmental Assessment analyzing these routes 
(EA #DOI-BLM-AZ-C030-2014-0040) concluded that allowing permitted 
motorized racers exclusive use of the Lake Havasu Field Office Record 
of Decision/Approved Resource Management Plan (2007) designated Parker 
400 course would mitigate safety concerns. These routes receive the 
most intense and concentrated high-speed use during the two annual 
permitted events.
    These temporary closures and restrictions affect public lands in 
and around the Parker 400 course near the communities of Parker and 
Bouse in La Paz County, Arizona. The temporary restriction area begins 
on public lands east of the eastern boundary of the Colorado River 
Indian Tribe (CRIT) Reservation, along Shea Road, then east into 
Osborne Wash onto the Parker-Swansea Road to the Central Arizona 
Project (CAP) Canal, then north on the west side of the CAP Canal, 
crossing the canal on the county-maintained road, running northeast 
into Mineral Wash Canyon, then southeast on the county-maintained road, 
through the four-corners intersection to the Midway (Pit) intersection, 
then east on Transmission Pass Road, through State Trust Land located 
in Butler Valley, turning north into Cunningham Wash to North Tank; 
continuing south to Transmission Pass Road and east (reentering public 
land) within two miles of Alamo Dam Road. The temporary restriction 
area boundary turns south and west onto the wooden power line road, 
onto the State Trust Land in Butler Valley, turning southwest into 
Cunningham Wash to the Graham Well, intersecting Butler Valley Road, 
then north and west on the county-maintained road to the ``Bouse Y'' 
intersection, two miles north of Bouse, Arizona. The temporary 
restriction area boundary proceeds north, paralleling the Bouse-Swansea 
Road to the Midway (Pit) intersection, then west along the north 
boundary (power line) road of the East Cactus Plain Wilderness Area to 
Parker-Swansea Road. The temporary restriction area boundary turns west 
into Osborne Wash crossing the CAP Canal, along the north boundary of 
the Cactus Plain Wilderness Study Area; it continues west staying in 
Osborne Wash and crossing Shea Road along the southern boundary of 
Gibraltar Wilderness, rejoining Osborne Wash at the CRIT Reservation 
boundary. The closure area follows the Parker 400 course as designated 
in the 2007 Lake Havasu Resource Management Plan.
    The temporary closures and restrictions are necessary because of 
the high speed nature of the race event and the added safety concerns 
due to the limited visibility when there is no daylight. Roads leading 
into the public lands under the temporary closure and restrictions will 
be posted with copies of the temporary closure, temporary restrictions, 
and associated maps to notify the public. The temporary closure and 
restriction orders will be posted in the Lake Havasu Field Office and 
online at https://www.blm.gov/office/lake-havasu-field-office. Maps of 
the affected area and other documents associated with this temporary 
closure are available at the Lake Havasu Field Office, 1785 Kiowa 
Avenue, Lake Havasu City, Arizona.
    The closures and restrictions are issued under the authority of 43 
CFR 8364.1 which allows the BLM to establish closures for the 
protection of persons, property, and public lands and resources. 
Violation of any of the terms, conditions, or restrictions contained 
within this closure order may subject the violator to citation or 
arrest with a penalty or fine or imprisonment or both as specified by 
law.
