Notice of withdrawal.


The United States Forest Service has filed a request to add 739.71 acres to their withdrawal application in aid of legislation for the proposed Global Settlement with the Pueblo of San Idelfonso, in Rio Arriba County, New Mexico. The original notice of proposed withdrawal was published in the Federal Register, 67 FR 7193, February 15, 2002, and segregated the lands described therein from location under the United States mining laws, subject to valid existing rights. This Start Printed Page 75629notice shall not operate to extend the segregation for the lands described in the original notice. The segregation is necessary to provide protection of these additional lands for relief of legislation during the negotiation of the proposed Global Settlement with the San Idelfonso Pueblo (Pueblo of San Idelfonso v. the United States of America—Docket No. 354 Court of Federal Claims).


Comments should be received on or before March 30, 2004.


Comments should be sent to the Forest Supervisor, Santa Fe National Forest, 1474 Rodeo Road, P.O. Box 1689, Santa Fe, New Mexico 87504-1689.
