Daily Rules, Proposed Rules, and Notices of the Federal Government
The Federal Aviation Administration has determined that approximately 1,905 acres of Air Navigation Site No. 189 is excess to 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. While the land remains in Federal ownership, there is no significant restriction on subsistence uses. If the lands are ultimately conveyed to the State of Alaska pursuant to the Alaska Statehood Act, that conveyance will not result in a significant restriction on subsistence. 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.
