Bureau of Land Management, Interior.
Public Land Order.
This order partially revokes a public land order insofar as it affects 32.66 acres of National Forest System land withdrawn for use by the Forest Service for the Edna Bay Administrative Site. The land is no longer needed for the purpose for which it was withdrawn. This action also allows the conveyance of the land to the State of Alaska, if such land is otherwise available. Land not conveyed to the State is opened to such forms of disposition as may by law be made of National Forest System land, subject to other withdrawals or segregations of record.
