OSMRE Jurisdiction To Administer the Surface Mining Control and Reclamation Act of 1977 Within the Exterior Boundaries of the Cherokee Nation Reservation and the Choctaw Nation Reservation in the State of Oklahoma
Document Number: 2021-22720
Type: Notice
Date: 2021-10-19
Agency: Department of the Interior, Office of Surface Mining Reclamation and Enforcement
We, the Office of Surface Mining Reclamation and Enforcement (OSMRE), are notifying the public that the recent decisions of the Oklahoma Court of Criminal Appeals in Hogner v. Oklahoma, 2021 WL 958412 (Okla. Ct. Crim. App. March 11, 2021), and Sizemore v. Oklahoma, 2021 WL 1231493 (Okla. Ct. Crim. App. April 1, 2021)which held that the historic Cherokee Nation of Oklahoma and the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma Reservations, respectively, had not been disestablished necessarily foreclose the State of Oklahoma's authority to implement the Surface Mining Control and Reclamation Act of 1977 (SMCRA) on Indian lands within the exterior boundaries of the Cherokee Nation and Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma Reservations. This determination follows the recent decision of the United States Supreme Court in McGirt v. Oklahoma, 140 S Ct. 2452 (2020), which legally recognized the ongoing existence of the historic Muscogee (Creek) Nation Reservation in the State of Oklahoma and necessarily foreclosed the State of Oklahoma's authority to implement SMCRA on Indian lands within the exterior boundaries of the Muscogee (Creek) Nation Reservation. As OSMRE stated in its recent notification regarding SMCRA jurisdiction on the Muscogee (Creek) Nation Reservation, SMCRA designates OSMRE as the sole regulatory authority over surface coal mining and reclamation operations on Indian lands where a tribe has not obtained primacy. Consistent with the Supreme Court's decision in McGirt, Oklahoma may not exercise its State program regulatory authority over surface coal mining and reclamation operations within the exterior boundaries of the Cherokee Nation and Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma Reservations. Accordingly, for lands within the exterior boundaries of the Cherokee Nation and Choctaw Nation Reservations, OSMRE is the sole agency with jurisdiction over the SMCRA Title IV abandoned mine land (AML) reclamation and Title V regulatory programs. The Cherokee Nation Reservation consists of lands, wholly or partially within the following counties: Adair, Cherokee, Craig, Delaware, Mayes, McIntosh, Muskogee, Nowata, Ottawa, Rogers, Sequoyah, Tulsa, Wagoner, and Washington. The Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma Reservation consists of lands, wholly or partially within the following counties: Atoka, Bryan, Choctaw, Coal, Haskell, Hughes, Johnston, Latimer, Le Flore, McCurtain, Pittsburg, Pontotoc, and Pushmataha.

Type: Rule
Date: 2021-10-18
Agency: Fish and Wildlife Service, Department of the Interior
We, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service), are reclassifying the humpback chub (Gila cypha) from endangered to threatened under the Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended (Act), due to substantial improvements in the species' overall status since its original listing as endangered in 1974. This action is based on a thorough review of the best available scientific and commercial information available, which indicates that the humpback chub no longer meets the definition of an endangered species under the Act. The humpback chub will remain protected as a threatened species under the Act. We are also finalizing a rule under section 4(d) of the Act that provides for the conservation of the humpback chub.

If we finalize this rule as proposed, it would add this species to the List of Endangered and Threatened Wildlife and extend the Act's protections to the species. We have determined that designation of critical habitat for the bog buck moth is not prudent at this time.
