SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Haines planning area is located in Southeast Alaska, bounded by the Canadian Border to the north and west, Glacier Bay National Park to the southwest, and the Tongass National Forest to the south and east. This planning area consists mainly of steep and remote mountainous terrain, with bedrock and glaciers that restrict road and trail access. Of the approximately 920,000 total acres within the planning area, the BLM manages approximately 317,000 acres. The size of the planning area has changed since signing of the Ring of Fire RMP Record of Decision (ROD) in 2008 due to the conveyance of several sections of BLM-managed lands to the State of Alaska. The purpose of this planning effort was to identify which designations, associated management practices, and implementation actions best fulfill the PO 00000 Frm 00071 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 resource and multiple-use needs within the Haines planning area. It also evaluated an Area of Critical Environmental Concern, as required by the Ring of Fire RMP ROD. In addition, this planning effort considered the results of a multi-year, BLM-funded study of goat and bear habitat in the Haines area by the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, completed in 2017. This amendment revises the applicable portions of the Ring of Fire RMP and provides a plan which is consistent with evolving law, regulations, and policy. The BLM prepared an EIS in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 to analyze the direct, indirect, and cumulative environmental impacts associated with the proposed action and the alternatives. The ROD approves the Agency Preferred Alternative identified in the Final EIS. The BLM issued the ROD based on compliance with relevant laws, regulations, policies, and plans, including those guiding agency decisions that may have an impact on resources and their values, services, and functions. On Oct. 7, 2019, the Notice of Availability (NOA) for the Haines Amendment to the Ring of Fire RMP and Final EIS was published in the Federal Register. The publication of the NOA initiated a 30-day protest period for the proposed land-use-planning decision. NOA publication also initiated a simultaneous 60-day review by the Governor of Alaska to identify inconsistencies with State or local plans, policies, or programs. At the close of the protest period three protests (of which two were found to have standing) were received. These protests were resolved by the BLM Director; individual protest response letters were sent to all protesting parties. Protest resolution is contained in the Director’s Protest Summary Report, which is available online at https:// www.blm.gov/programs/planning-andnepa/public-participation/protestresolution-reports. The Alaska Governor’s review found that the RMP Amendment is consistent with state plans, policies, and programs. (Authority: 16 U.S.C. 3120(a); 40 CFR 1506.6(b)) Chad B.
