SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

This withdrawal keeps the lands identified below from the specified forms of appropriation in order to maintain the current environmental baseline, relative to mineral exploration and development for land management evaluation, subject to valid existing rights, to allow the DON time to complete its environmental evaluations under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). The DON's environmental evaluations and NEPA analysis are for a potential legislative withdrawal of these acres of land at Naval Air Station Fallon that the DON intends to propose to Congress to withdraw and reserve for military use.
