This site displays a prototype of a “Web 2.0” version of the daily Federal Register. It is not an official legal edition of the Federal Register, and does not replace the official print version or the official electronic version on GPO’s govinfo.gov.
The documents posted on this site are XML renditions of published Federal Register documents. Each document posted on the site includes a link to the corresponding official PDF file on govinfo.gov. This prototype edition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov will remain an unofficial informational resource until the Administrative Committee of the Federal Register (ACFR) issues a regulation granting it official legal status. For complete information about, and access to, our official publications and services, go to About the Federal Register on NARA's archives.gov.
The OFR/GPO partnership is committed to presenting accurate and reliable regulatory information on FederalRegister.gov with the objective of establishing the XML-based Federal Register as an ACFR-sanctioned publication in the future. While every effort has been made to ensure that the material on FederalRegister.gov is accurately displayed, consistent with the official SGML-based PDF version on govinfo.gov, those relying on it for legal research should verify their results against an official edition of the Federal Register. Until the ACFR grants it official status, the XML rendition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov does not provide legal notice to the public or judicial notice to the courts.

Notice of intent to prepare an Environmental Impact Statement for the George Washington Boyhood Home Special Resource Study.
Under the provisions of the National Environmental Policy Act, the National Park Service is preparing an Environmental Impact Statement for the George Washington Boyhood Home Special Resource Study. This Environmental Impact Statement will be approved by the Northeast Regional Director.
The US Congress authorized the special resource study in Section 509(c) PL 105-355 to examine how the cultural and natural resources of the property can be protected and public use of the site furthered. The George Washington Boyhood Home property, also known as Ferry Farm, is located in Stafford County, Virginia. The property, part of the 18th century plantation where George Washington spent his youth, is now owned by the George Washington's Fredericksburg Foundation. Congress also authorized the Department of the Interior, through the National Park Service, to acquire easements on the property. The overall purpose of the study is to identify an appropriate management framework to achieve resource protection and public use goals. Leadership for the study project is being provided by the Superintendent of Fredericksburg and Spotsylvania National Military Park.
A scoping meeting will be scheduled. Public notice will be accomplished through a broad mailing and publication in the local newspaper. A newsletter introducing the project to the public is available. Copies of the newsletter can be obtained by request through the Superintendent, Fredericksburg and Spotsylvania National Military Park at the phone number below or by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.Start Further Info
