SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

This notice initiates scoping for the amendment of the Mountain Valley management Framework Plan (1982) as amended (MVMFP), in accordance with 43 CFR 1610.2(c). If and when the BLM State Director does or does not approve such an amendment, the public will be notified in accordance with 43 CFR 1610.5-5.

The BLM intends to amend the MVMFP because the following described public land in Piute County, Utah is being considered for non-competitive (direct) sale under the authority of section 203 of the FLPMA of 1976 (43 U.S.C. 1713):

Salt Lake Meridian, Utah

T. 27 S., R. 4 W.,

Sec. 26, Lot 53B

The area described contains 4.82 acres in Piute County. Sale of the lands described would not be in conformance with the current land use plan. The MVMFP does not identify this tract for a FLPMA sale. The proposed plan amendment would serve to identify the 4.82 acre tract for disposal consistent with the sale criteria in section 203 of the FLPMA, in order to allow for the possibility of sale of this parcel. The purpose of the proposed plan amendment, and the consideration of sale of these identified lands is to resolve an inadvertent unauthorized occupancy of the public land, and to protect existing equities in the land, in accordance with 43 CFR 2710.0-6(c)(3)(iii). Should the amendment be approved, the BLM will consider sale of the identified parcel to Audrey G. Roth, current occupant on that parcel. Following a decision to approve the proposed plan amendment, and further procedures in accordance with the FLPMA and its implementing regulations, Start Printed Page 39637conveyance of the identified land would be subject to valid existing rights and encumbrances, including but not limited to, rights-of-way for roads and utilities. Conveyance of any mineral interests pursuant to section 209 of the FLPMA will be analyzed during processing of the sale, should it be proposed.
