The BLM proposes to segregate the affected land, amend the relevant RMP, and offer the land for direct sale to resolve the issue.

The area described contains 1.13 acres. Upon publication of this Notice in the Federal Register, the public land 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 segregation will terminate upon (1) issuance of a conveyance document; (2) publication in the Federal Register terminating the segregation; or (3) on November 4, 2022, unless extended by the BLM Wyoming State Director in accordance with 43 CFR 2711.1–2(d). Until completion of the sale, the BLM will no longer accept land use applications affecting the identified public land in accordance with 43 CFR 2807.15. The BLM may sell a tract of public land as a result of approved land use planning if the sale of the tract meets the disposal criteria. The 2015 Buffalo RMP does not identify the 1.13 acres of public land in question as suitable for disposal. Therefore, to dispose of the tract, the BLM must amend the RMP to meet the requirements of FLPMA Section 203 through planning. If authorized, the underlying decision will amend the Buffalo RMP, establishing that ‘‘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 Federal department or agency.’’ The BLM will analyze the parcel and develop an EA to evaluate the environmental effects of the proposed VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:16 Nov 03, 2020 Jkt 253001 RMP amendment and the sale criteria under FLPMA Section 203(a)(3) and 43 CFR 2710.0–3(a)(3) to ensure the disposal of the tract will serve important public objectives, including but not limited to relieving BLM authority for a parcel of public land that, 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 Federal department or agency. After the BLM has analyzed public scoping comments and prepared the analysis, the EA will be available for a 30-day protest period. The parcel being considered for direct sale is not required for any other Federal purpose. Regulations contained in 43 CFR 2710.0–6 (c)(3)(iii) and 2711.3– 3(a)(5) make allowances for direct sales to resolve inadvertent unauthorized use or occupancy of public land.

Ross for the fair market value of at least $555 to resolve the inadvertent unauthorized use and ensure the federal government receives fair compensation for the sale of the parcel. The BLM has determined the parcel is not an access point for recreation in accordance with Secretary’s Order 3373, Evaluating Public Access in Bureau of Land Management Public Land Disposals and Exchanges.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In the 1960s, local landowners 
misinterpreted the boundaries of their private property and 
inadvertently built a home site that encroached onto public land. The 
BLM proposes to segregate the affected land, amend the relevant RMP, 
and offer the land for direct sale to resolve the issue. The BLM will 
examine the following described public lands located in Johnson, 
County, Wyoming, for disposal suitability under the authority of 
Sections 202 and 203 of FLPMA:

Sixth Principal Meridian, Wyoming

T. 44 N., R. 81 W.,
    Sec. 30, parcel A.

    The area described contains 1.13 acres.

    Upon publication of this Notice in the Federal Register, the public 
land 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 segregation will terminate upon (1) 
issuance of a conveyance document; (2) publication in the Federal 
Register terminating the segregation; or (3) on November 4, 2022, 
unless extended by the BLM Wyoming State Director in accordance with 43

accept land use applications affecting the identified public land in 
accordance with 43 CFR 2807.15.

land use planning if the sale of the tract meets the disposal criteria. 
The 2015 Buffalo RMP does not identify the 1.13 acres of public land in 
question as suitable for disposal. Therefore, to dispose of the tract, 
the BLM must amend the RMP to meet the requirements of FLPMA Section 
203 through planning. If authorized, the underlying decision will amend

location or other characteristics, is difficult and uneconomic to 
manage as part of the public lands and is not suitable for management 
by another Federal department or agency.''
    The BLM will analyze the parcel and develop an EA to evaluate the 
environmental effects of the proposed RMP amendment and the sale 
criteria under FLPMA Section 203(a)(3) and 43 CFR 2710.0-3(a)(3) to 
ensure the disposal of the tract will serve important public 
objectives, including but not limited to relieving BLM authority for a 
parcel of public land that, 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 Federal 
department or agency. After the BLM has analyzed public scoping 
comments and prepared the analysis, the EA will be available for a 30-
day protest period.
    The parcel being considered for direct sale is not required for any 
other Federal purpose. Regulations contained in 43 CFR 2710.0-6 
(c)(3)(iii) and 2711.3-3(a)(5) make allowances for direct sales to 
resolve inadvertent unauthorized use or occupancy of public land. The 
BLM will consider selling this parcel if it is determined that the 
public interest would best be served by selling the 1.13-acre parcel to 
William D. and Bonnie S. Ross for the fair market value of at least 
$555 to resolve the inadvertent unauthorized use and ensure the federal 
government receives fair compensation for the sale of the parcel. The 
BLM has determined the parcel is not an access point for recreation in 
accordance with Secretary's Order 3373, Evaluating Public Access in 
Bureau of Land Management Public Land Disposals and Exchanges. Disposal 
of this tract will have no anticipated impacts on recreational access 
to adjacent tracts of publicly accessible lands.

reservations; excepting and reserving to the United States:

the Act of October 21, 1976 (43 U.S.C. 1719), including, without

Geothermal Steam Act, and to it, its permittees, licensees, lessees, 
and mining claimants, the right to prospect for, mine and remove the 
minerals owned by the United States under applicable law an such 
regulations as the Secretary of the Interior may prescribe. This 
reservation includes necessary access and exit rights and the right to

necessary.

owner, mining claimants, permittees, licensees and lessees of the 
United States shall reclaim disturbed areas to the extent prescribed by 
regulations issued by the Secretary of the Interior.
    All causes of action brought to enforce the rights of the surface 
owner under the regulations above referred to shall be instituted 
against mining claimants, permittees, licensees and lessees of the 
United States; and the United States shall not be liable for the acts 
or omissions of its mining claimants, permittees, licensees and 
lessees.
    3. An appropriate indemnification clause protecting the United 
States from claims arising out of the patentee's use, occupancy, or 
occupation on the patented lands.

existing rights. The BLM will publish this notice in the Buffalo 
Bulletin newspaper once a week for three consecutive weeks. Comments 
will be accepted as discussed in the ADDRESSES section above.
