The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has determined that an approximately 32-acre parcel on the east boundary of the withdrawal created by Public Land Order No. 3708 is excess to its needs and requested a partial revocation of the withdrawal. Upon revocation, the State of Alaska selection applications made under the Alaska Statehood Act and the Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act become effective without further action by the State, if such land is otherwise available. Lands selected by, but not conveyed to, the State are subject to the terms and conditions of Public Land Order No. 5186 (37 FR 5589 (1972)), as amended, and any other withdrawal, application, or segregation of record. Any significant restriction on subsistence uses is unavoidable because the land is required to be conveyed to the State of Alaska under Section 810(c) of the Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act.
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, it is ordered as follows:
