Notice of Application for Extension of Public Land Order No. 6244 and Opportunity for Public Meeting; Alaska
The U.S. Air Force 673rd Civil Engineer Squadron Real Property Officer filed an application with the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) requesting the Secretary of the Interior extend the duration of the withdrawal created by Public Land Order (PLO) No. 6244 for an additional 20-year term. The withdrawal created by PLO No. 6244, as extended by PLO No. 7514, expires on May 12, 2022. PLO No. 6244, as extended, withdrew public land from surface land and mining laws for military purposes at Fort Richardson, Alaska. This requested extension notes the change of PLO No. 6244 by the 2005 Base Closure and Realignment Report, creating Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson with the Department of the Air Force as the supporting agency. This Notice invites the public to comment on the Air Force application or request a public meeting for the requested 20-year withdrawal extension.
Endangered and Threatened Wildlife and Plants; Removal of Lepanthes eltoroensis From the Federal List of Endangered and Threatened Plants
We, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, are removing Lepanthes eltoroensis (no common name), an orchid species from Puerto Rico, from the Federal List of Endangered and Threatened Plants, due to recovery. This determination is based on a thorough review of the best available scientific and commercial information, which indicates that the threats to the species have been eliminated or reduced to the point that the species no longer meets the definition of an endangered or threatened species under the Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended (Act). Accordingly, the prohibitions and conservation measures provided by the Act will no longer apply to this species.
Endangered and Threatened Wildlife and Plants; Removing the Water Howellia From the List of Endangered and Threatened Plants
We, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service), are removing water howellia (Howellia aquatilis) from the Federal List of Endangered and Threatened Plants. The best available scientific and commercial data indicate that threats to water howellia identified at the time of listing in 1994 are not as significant as originally determined and are being adequately managed. Therefore, the species no longer meets the definition of an endangered or a threatened species under the Endangered Species Act of 1973 (Act), as amended. This determination is based on a thorough review of all available information, which indicates that this species' populations and distribution are much greater than were known at the time of listing and that threats to this species have been sufficiently minimized.
