SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Lewistown Proposed RMP provides a single, comprehensive land use plan that guides management of BLM lands on approximately 651,200 acres of BLMmanaged public lands and 1,196,800 acres of Federal mineral estate in central Montana in Cascade, Fergus, Judith Basin, Meagher, Petroleum, Pondera, Teton, Chouteau, and Lewis and Clark counties. These lands and minerals are managed by two BLM offices located in Lewistown and Butte, Montana. The RMP will fulfill the needs and obligations set forth by NEPA, FLPMA, and BLM management policies. The RMP will reflect the changing needs of the planning area over the next several decades, and will replace the current Headwaters and Judith RMPs, as amended, that were developed in 1984 and 1994, respectively. The Proposed RMP/Final EIS evaluates four alternatives in detail. Alternative A is the No Action Alternative, which is a continuation of current management direction in the existing Judith and Headwaters RMPs. Alternative B emphasizes managing habitats for priority plant, wildlife, and fish species while providing modest development of resource uses. Alternative B emphasizes hunting, fishing, and other recreation through Backcountry Conservation Areas (BCAs) and management of lands with wilderness characteristics. The agency Proposed Plan alternative is Alternative C with a few VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:56 Feb 13, 2020 Jkt 250001 modifications, including the addition of two BCAs and two Areas of Critical Environmental Concerns (ACECs), and adjustments to oil and gas stipulations to be consistent with surrounding BLM field offices. Alternative C emphasizes resource uses on BLM-administered lands and mineral estate targeting social and economic outcomes while protecting land health. The Proposed Plan employs fewer special management designations for resource-use objectives, but does emphasize wildlife-dependent recreation through the allocation of two BCAs. Alternative D emphasizes resource uses and a variety of management prescriptions (e.g., recreation management areas, ACECs, Visual Resource Management, etc.) to address the use and conservation of natural and cultural resources, while sustaining and enhancing forest and range health across the landscape. The Lewistown Draft RMP/Draft EIS public comment period began on May 17, 2019, and ended on August 15, 2019. The BLM held three public open house meetings in Winnett, Lewistown, and Great Falls, Montana, during the public comment period on the Draft RMP/Draft EIS. The BLM considered and incorporated in the proposed plan, as appropriate, comments received from the public, cooperating agencies and internal BLM review. Before including your address, phone number, email address, or other personally identifiable information in your protest, be aware that your entire protest—including your personally identifiable information—may be made publicly available at any time. While you can ask us in your protest to withhold your personal identifying information from public review, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so.

In this case, a competitive sale is not appropriate because the subject lands contain improvements that directly support the adjoining ranch property, owned by Paint Rock Angus Ranch, Inc., rendering the land unusable by the public.

The public’s interest is best served by resolving the inadvertent unauthorized use and receiving payment at FMV for the public lands. Upon publication of this Notice in the Federal Register, the public lands described above will be segregated from all forms of appropriation under the public land laws, including the mining laws, except for the sale provisions of the FLPMA. The temporary segregation will terminate upon, (1) Issuance of a conveyance document, (2) Publication in the Federal Register terminating the segregation, or (3) On February 14, 2022, unless extended by the BLM Wyoming State Director, in accordance with 43 CFR 2711.1–2(d).

the following disposal criteria: ``Such tract, because of its location 
or other characteristics, is difficult and uneconomic to manage as part 
of the public lands, and is not suitable for management by another

3(a), a direct sale may be appropriate to resolve inadvertent,

land unusable by the public. The minimal acreage was considered to 
create a manageable boundary that included the lands needed to protect 
the existing irrigation improvements and resolve inadvertent 
unauthorized use. The public's interest is best served by resolving the 
inadvertent unauthorized use and receiving payment at FMV for the 
public lands.

Director, in accordance with 43 CFR 2711.1-2(d).
    Upon publication of this Notice, the BLM will no longer accept land 
use applications affecting these public lands, except applications for 
the amendment of previously filed rights-of-way applications or 
existing authorizations to increase the term of the grants in 
accordance with 43 CFR 2807.15 and 43 CFR 2886.15.
    The conveyance document, if issued, will be subject to the 
following terms, conditions, and reservations:
