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.
Bureau of Land Management, Interior.
Emergency closure of public lands for access on all roads, trails and cross country travel to mechanized vehicles (motorized vehicles of all types) on BLM administered lands in Elmore County, Idaho, containing 480 acres.
The operation of all mechanized vehicles (motorized vehicles of all types) on public lands administered by BLM on the S1/2, Section 19, and N1/2N1/2, Section 30; T. 1 S., R. 5 E., Boise Meridian, Elmore County, Idaho is hereby prohibited. The emergency access closure is intended to protect special status plant species, and their habitats, from further degradation and demise. Also, due to the unauthorized road excavation over an existing petroleum pipeline this unauthorized activity has made the pipeline dangerously close to the surface putting the public's health, safety and well-being at extremely high risk. The closure will go into effect immediately and will expire October 4, 2003. Exceptions to this closure may include vehicle use for administrative and emergency purposes. Under special circumstances, the authorized officer may issue a permit allowing vehicle access into the area for specific purposes.
