Notice of revisions. AGENCY: ACTION: This notice announces the establishment of a categorical exclusion (CX) for the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) as directed by the amendment of the Healthy Forests Restoration Act (HFRA) of 2003 by the Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018. This establishment revises BLM policies and procedures for compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), as amended; other statutes; Executive Order 11514, as amended; Executive Order 12114; and the Council on Environmental Quality’s regulations. These CXs, as well as others established by Congress, as described below, will be incorporated into the Departmental Manual (DM) and will be added to the Department of the Interior’s (Department) Electronic Library of Interior Policies (ELIPS). DATES: The CXs will be incorporated into 516 DM 11 June 1, 2020. ADDRESSES: The public will be able to review the revised DM on the Department’s website at http:// www.doi.gov/nepa.

You will receive a reply during normal business hours. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The BLM’s NEPA procedures, located at Chapter 11 of Part 516 of the Departmental Manual (516 DM 11), were last updated August 14, 2007. The Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018 amended Title VI of the HFRA of 2003 (16 U.S.C. 6591 et seq.) to add Section 606. Section 606 directed development of a CX for specified covered vegetation management activities carried out to protect, restore, or improve habitat for greater sage-grouse or mule deer (HFRA, Section 606(b)(1)). Section 606 further provides the specific terms, actions, limitations, exclusions, and definitions of activities to be included in the CX established. As directed by this section, the BLM is to establish the CX that meets these same specific terms, actions, limitations, exclusions, and definitions; and to establish the CX within one year of the enactment of the legislation (by December 20, 2019). In addition, the BLM is taking the opportunity to incorporate into 516 DM 11 several other CXs established by Congress in recent years. Because the CXs are established or directed by Congress, the BLM does not have the discretion to change their terms. Below is the new text of Chapter 11, reflecting the statutorily established or directed CXs: 11.10 Categorical Exclusions Established or Directed by Statute A. The Energy Policy Act of 2005 (Pub. L. 109–58) (42 U.S.C. 15942) established actions for categorical exclusion from NEPA analysis. Use of Energy Policy Act categorical exclusions does not require review for extraordinary circumstances. This is because these CXs are established by statute, and their application is governed by that statute. Section 390 of the Energy Policy Act of 2005 provides: (a) NEPA Review.—Action by the Secretary of the Interior in managing the public lands, with respect to any of the activities described in subsection (b), shall be subject to a rebuttable presumption that the use of a categorical exclusion under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969 would apply if the activity is conducted pursuant to the Mineral Leasing Act for the purpose of exploration or development of oil or gas. (b) Activities Described.—The activities referred to in subsection (a) are the following: E:\FR\FM\01MYN1.SGM 01MYN1
