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.
Forest Service, USDA.
Cancellation of an environmental statement.
In 2002, the USDA Forest Service, Intermountain Region, gave notice that the agency would prepare an environmental impact statement (EIS) for the relocation of the existing Grouse Creek Road (Forest Service Road 50325). The road is located on the Payette National Forest, McCall Ranger district, Near the Secesh River and within the Crystal Mountain Inventoried Roadless Area. Because the new road would have been located in an inventoried roadless area, the Regional Forester was the Responsible Official. The Notice of Intent (NOI) to prepare an EIS was published in the June 21, 2002 Federal Register (67 FR 42230). Since that time, review of the proposed project by research scientists and other Forest Service specialists has determined that improvements to the existing road would cause fewer impacts to critical fish resources than relocating the road. The identified improvements can be accomplished using normal road maintenance practices, which do not require preparation of an EIS. Therefore, the planned EIS is not needed, and the NOI is hereby rescinded.Start Further Info
