ACTION: Notice of intent.


SUMMARY: Pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 
1969, as amended, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Miles City Field 
Office, Montana, announces its intent to prepare supplemental air 
quality analysis information. On February 2, 2007, the BLM published a 
Notice of Availability in the Federal Register announcing the release

period closed May 2, 2007. The BLM was notified by the Environmental 
Protection Agency (EPA) of air quality analysis deficiencies in the 
Draft SEIS. As a result, the BLM is preparing an additional air quality 
analysis. When the additional air quality analysis has been completed, 
the BLM will only accept comments from the public on the new 
information presented.

DATES: The BLM anticipates making the additional air quality analysis 
information available to the public for a 90-day comment period around 
September 2007. The BLM will publish a Notice of Availability in the 
Federal Register when the supplemental air quality analysis is ready 
for release for public comment. Additional announcements will be made 
through local media by news releases and posted information on the 
Draft SEIS Web site: http://frwebgate.access.gpo.gov/cgi-bin/leaving.cgi?from=leavingFR.html&log=linklog&to=http://www.blm.gov/eis/mt/milescity_seis/.
