of Agriculture (USDA), United States

Forest Management, Range and
Vegetation Ecology, at 202–578–9916 or

telecommunication devices for the deaf
may call the Federal Information Relay
Service (FIRS) at 1–800–877–8339
between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. Eastern Time,
Monday through Friday.
SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION
: The
proposed directives reorganize and
eliminate redundant policies and
procedures, delete obsolete references
and update agency policies and
procedures to reflect new authorities
and timber management practices that
have been implemented since previous
revisions to the directives were made
available. An analysis of existing agency
policy in Forest Service Handbooks and
Manuals was conducted to identify
revisions needed to support this
initiative.
The proposed directives update Forest
Service Handbook 2409.15, ‘‘Timber
Sale Administration,’’ Chapters Zero,
10, 30, 50 and 70; Forest Service
Handbook 2409.18a, ‘‘Timber Sale
Debarment and Suspension
Procedures,’’ Chapters Zero, 10, and 20;
and Forest Service Manual 2400,
‘‘Timber Management,’’ Chapters Zero,
30, 40, 50 and 60. These directives set
forth policy, responsibilities, and
direction for several aspects of
management and implement the
agency’s goal of providing more current
direction. Forest Service National
Environmental Policy Act (NEPA)
procedures exclude from documentation
in an environmental assessment or
impact statement ‘‘rules, regulations, or
policies to establish servicewide
administrative procedures, program
processes, or instructions.’’ 36 CFR
220.6(d)(2). The Agency’s conclusion is
that these final directives fall within
this category of actions and that no
extraordinary circumstances exist as
currently defined that require
preparation of an environmental
assessment or an environmental impact
statement.
The Forest Service has also
determined that the changes to the
manual and two handbooks formulate
standards, criterion, or guidelines
applicable to a Forest Service program
and are therefore publishing the
proposed manual for public comment in
accordance with 36 CFR part 216. The
Forest Service is seeking public
comment on the proposed directives,
including the sufficiency of the
proposed directives in meeting its stated
objectives, ways to enhance the utility
and clarity of information within the
direction, or ways to streamline
processes outlined.
After the public comment period
closes, the Forest Service will consider
timely comments that are within the
scope of the proposed directive in the
development of the final directive. A
notice of the final directive, including a
response to timely comments, will be
posted on the Forest Service’s web page
at https://www.fs.fed.us/about-agency/
regulations-policies/comment-on-
directives.
