Proposed Supplementary Rules for the Castle Rocks Land Use Plan Amendment Area, Idaho
The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is proposing supplementary rules for all BLM-administered public lands within an approximately 400-acre area in Idaho known as Castle Rocks. The BLM addressed this area in the November 2013 Cassia Resource Management Plan (CRMP) Amendment and Record of Decision (ROD). The CRMP amendment made implementation-level decisions designed to conserve natural and cultural resources while providing for recreational opportunities. These supplementary rules would allow the BLM and law enforcement partners to enforce those decisions.
Renewal of Approved Information Collection
The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has submitted an information collection request to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to continue the collection of information from applicants who wish to participate in the exploration, development, production, and utilization of oil and gas operations on BLM-managed public lands. The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has assigned control number 1004- 0137 to this collection.

The United States Forest Service (USFS) has filed an application with the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) requesting that the Secretary of the Interior extend the duration of Public Land Order (PLO) No. 7184 for an additional 20-year term.

The withdrawal created by PLO No. 7184 will expire on February 13, 2016, unless it is extended. This notice gives the public an opportunity to comment on the application and proposed action and to request a public meeting.
