Importation of Beef From a Region in Brazil
We are reopening the comment period for our proposed rule that would allow, under certain conditions, the importation of fresh (chilled or frozen) beef from a region in Brazil (the States of Bahia, Distrito Federal, Espirito Santo, Goias, Mato Grosso, Mato Grosso do Sul, Minas Gerais, Parana, Rio Grande do Sul, Rio de Janeiro, Rondonia, Sao Paulo, Sergipe, and Tocantins). This action will allow interested persons additional time to prepare and submit comments.
Assessment Report of Ecological/Social/Economic Sustainability, Conditions, and Trends for the Carson National Forest
The Carson National Forest, located in northern New Mexico, is initiating the forest plan revision process pursuant to the 2012 National Forest System Land Management Planning Rule (36 CFR Part 219). This process results in a revised forest land management plan (forest plan), which describes the strategic direction for management of forest resources on the Carson National Forest over the next ten to fifteen years. The first phase of the process, the assessment phase, is just beginning. The public is invited to contribute information that can be used in the development of the assessment (36 CFR Sec. 219.6). To gather relevant information about conditions and trends in and around the Carson National Forest, the Forest Service will be hosting a series of public forums in late spring/early summer of 2014. Information about public engagement opportunities during the assessment phase and the entire plan revision process will be posted on the Carson National Forest's Web site, which will be continuously updated as the planning process progresses.
