SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

This notice lists the newspapers that will normally be used by the Wildlife Services (WS) program of the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) to publish legal notices in accordance with the Agency's National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) implementing procedures in 7 CFR part 372. We are publishing this notice to inform interested members of the public which newspapers APHIS-WS will most likely use to publish legal notices in connection with its NEPA-related activities, which we believe will enhance the public's opportunity to read and comment on our NEPA documents and decisions by providing clear, timely, and consistent notice of their availability. Newspaper notices will be published in the State newspaper of record specific to the State in which the APHIS-WS NEPA-related activities will take place. Additional newspapers, or different newspapers, may occasionally have to be used, depending upon the geographic area or areas covered or affected by a particular APHIS-WS NEPA document, as well as on the subject matter and courses of proposed action or actions identified in the NEPA document.

In addition to the notice provided through publication in newspapers, APHIS-WS will also post its NEPA-related legal notices on the Internet. The following Web address will be used: http://www.aphis.usda.gov/​wildlife_​damage/​nepa.shtml.
