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.

The Imperial Sand Dunes RAMP was developed with broad public participation through a multi-year collaborative planning process. This RAMP addresses management on approximately 158,072 acres of public land in the planning areas. The Imperial Sand Dunes RAMP is designed to achieve or maintain desired future conditions developed through the planning process. It includes a series of management actions to meet the desired resource conditions for native plant populations, wildlife habitats, cultural and visual resources, and recreation.
The approved Imperial Sand Dunes RAMP is essentially the same as Alternative 2 in the Proposed Imperial Sand Dunes RAMP and Final Environmental Impact Statement (PRAMP/FEIS), published in May 2003. BLM received eleven protest(s) to the Proposed RAMP/FEIS. No inconsistencies with State or local plans, policies, or programs were identified during the Governor's consistency review of the Proposed RAMP/FEIS. As a result, only minor editorial modifications were made in preparing the final RAMP/ROD. These modifications corrected errors that were noted during review of the Proposed RAMP/FEIS and provide further clarification for some of the decisions. An errata sheet is included with the RAMP/Record of Decision that identifies the location of the corrections to the Proposed RAMP/FEIS.Start Signature
