Any lease of this land will be subject to valid existing rights; will contain any terms or conditions required by law or regulation, including a provision for termination upon a finding that the land has not been utilized for the purpose specified for a time period to be specified in the lease or that the land is being devoted to another use; will contain a provision Start Printed Page 29786prohibiting the disposal, placement, or release of any hazardous substance; and will contain an appropriate indemnification clause protecting the United States from claims arising out of the lessee's use, occupancy or operations on the leased lands.

Interested parties may also submit written comments regarding the specific use proposed in the application and plan of development, whether the BLM followed proper administrative procedures in reaching its decision or any other factor not directly related to the suitability of the land for R&PP Act use.
