SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The Federal Aviation Administration has determined approximately 606 acres of Air Navigation Site No. 190 now exceeds its needs and has 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. Land selected by, but not conveyed to, the State is subject to the terms and conditions of Public Land Order No. 5184 (37 FR 5588 (1972)), as amended, and any other withdrawals, applications, or segregations of record. While the land remains in Federal ownership, there is no significant restriction on subsistence uses. If the land ultimately is conveyed to the State of Alaska pursuant to the Alaska Statehood Act, that conveyance will not result in a significant restriction on subsistence uses. Even if any such restriction would result upon conveyance of the land to the State, conveyance of the land is authorized by Section 810(c) of the Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act.
