Bureau of Land Management, Interior.
Public land order.
This order partially revokes the California Desert Protection Act of 1994 insofar as it affects 42.3 acres within the boundaries of the China Lake Naval Weapons Center withdrawn for the Department of the Navy for military purposes. The land is no longer needed for the purpose for which it was withdrawn. This action returns the land to Bureau of Land Management administration and opens it to surface entry and mineral leasing. The land will remain withdrawn from mining due to an overlapping withdrawal.
