SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

16 U.S.C. 460 l-9(c)(1) provides that, after notifying the House Committee on Natural Resources and the Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources, the Secretary of the Interior is authorized to make this boundary revision upon publication of notice in the Federal Register.

The exclusion of Tract 114-05 will resolve an unauthorized land use issue and have no effect on its ownership or use.
