Title: Federal coal leasing proposed rules published

Abstract

Proposed rules by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the US Geological Survey (USGS) are designed to streamline the existing federal coal leasing rules and ultimately accelerate the offering of publicly-owned coal lands, according to an announcement by Interior Secretary James Watt. The rules were published in the December 16, 1981 federal Register. The BLM and the USGS proposed rules (which appear in the Code of Federal Regulations, Group 3400 of Title 43 and Part 211 of Title 30, respectively) are coordinated and cross-referenced to serve as a total revision of the Federal coal leasing program. The proposed rules maintain the existing structure of the Federal coal management program, but make several important modifications that strengthen the program and add needed flexibility.
