Public Land Order.
This Public Land Order (PLO) extends the duration of the withdrawal of public land created by two prior PLOs (PLO No. 5645, as extended by PLO No. 7336), for an additional 20-year term. Approval of this PLO would allow the continued operation of the United States (U.S.) and Canadian Joint Use Port of Entry, Poker Creek Border Station. Without an extension, the current PLO will expire on July 18, 2018. If the withdrawal expires, the selection by the State of Alaska would immediately become effective and the land would be eligible for transfer out of Federal ownership.
PLO No. 5645 withdrew approximately ten acres of public land from settlement, sale, location or entry under the general land laws, including U.S. mining laws, and reserved them for the maintenance of the Poker Creek Border Station in Alaska. PLO No. 7336 extended PLO No. 5645 for an additional 20-year term and transferred administrative jurisdiction from the U.S. Department of the Treasury to the General Services Administration.
This PLO takes effect on July 19, 2018.
