SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The evaluation of the Caliente Rail Corridor will assist the Department of Energy to determine through the preparation of the Caliente Corridor rail alignment environmental impact statement, conducted pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, as amended, 42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq., whether to construct the rail line in that location. Construction of a rail line within the Caliente Rail Corridor would require that the Department of Energy apply for and receive a right-of-way grant from the Bureau of Land Management in accordance with the Federal Land Policy and Management Act, as amended, 43 U.S.C. Subchapter V.

Order

By virtue of the authority vested in the Secretary of the Interior by section 204 of the Federal Land Policy and Management Act of 1976, 43 U.S.C. 1714 (2000), it is ordered as follows:

1. Subject to valid existing rights, the following described public lands are hereby withdrawn from settlement, sale, location, or entry under the general land laws, including the United States mining laws (30 U.S.C. Ch. 2 (2000)), but not from leasing under the mineral leasing laws, for a period of 10 years, to allow the Department of Energy to evaluate lands within the Caliente Rail Corridor for the potential construction, operation, and maintenance of a rail line which would be used to transport spent nuclear fuel and high-level radioactive waste to the proposed Yucca Mountain Repository as part of the Department of Energy's responsibility under the Nuclear Waste Policy Act, as amended, 42 U.S.C. 10101 et seq.

2. This order does not authorize the construction, operation, or maintenance of a rail line to transport spent nuclear fuel and high-level radioactive waste to the Yucca Mountain Repository.

3. All public lands included in this withdrawal will be managed in accordance with applicable Bureau of Land Management land use plans, laws, regulations, and policy. The actions of the Department of Energy in evaluation of the lands covered by this withdrawal will meet the Bureau of Land Management's definition of “casual use” as set forth at 43 CFR 2801.5. The withdrawal made by this order does not alter the applicability of those public land laws governing the use of the lands under lease, license, or permit, or governing the disposal of their mineral or vegetative resources other than under the mining laws.

4. This withdrawal will expire 10 years from the effective date of this order unless, as a result of a review conducted before the expiration date pursuant to section 204(f) of the Federal Land Policy and Management Act of 1976, 43 U.S.C. 1714(f) (2000), the Secretary determines that the withdrawal shall be extended.
