Annual Charges for Use of Government Lands in AlaskaProposed Rule2017-1784608/31/2017Energy DepartmentThe Federal Power Act requires hydropower licensees to recompense the United States for the use, occupancy, and enjoyment of federal lands.

The Commission assesses annual charges for the use of federal lands through Part 11 of its regulations. The Commission proposes to revise the per-acre land value component of its methodology for calculating these annual charges for hydropower projects located in Alaska. Under the proposed rule, the Commission would calculate a statewide average per-acre land value for hydropower lands in Alaska. The Commission would use the statewide average per-acre land value, rather than a regional per-acre land value, to calculate annual charges for use of federal lands for all hydropower projects in Alaska, except those located in the Aleutian Islands Area.annual-charges-for-use-of-government-lands-in-alaskaFR-Doc-2017-17846

This Final Rule amends requirements pertaining to the format and dimensions of maps and drawings submitted to the Commission by applicants and licensees in the Commission's hydropower program. Specifically, the amendments: remove the requirement that applicants and licensees submit copies of certain project maps and drawings in microfilm format on aperture cards; and change the minimum and maximum dimensions applicable to submitted maps and drawings.

Flood Control Regulations, Marshall Ford Dam (Mansfield Dam and Lake Travis), Colorado River, TexasRule2014-0525203/11/2014Defense DepartmentThe U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) is amending the rules regarding use and administration of Marshall Ford Dam (Mansfield Dam and Lake Travis), Colorado River, Texas.

In 1997, the Lower Colorado River Authority (LCRA) completed repayment of the federal government's contribution for acquisition and construction costs related to Mansfield Dam. Subsequently, the United States Bureau of Reclamation (USBR) has relinquished all rights and obligations to the project. However, the U.S. Department of the Interior and the USBR are referenced as project stakeholders in the Flood Control Regulations. Amending the referenced regulations to update project ownership will eliminate the current discrepancy between the regulations and associated project documents. The Fort Worth District of the Corps and LCRA have finalized a revised water control plan for Lake Travis (Marshall Ford Dam, aka Mansfield Dam). There is no intent to publish the updated water control plan in the Federal Register. Amending the regulations to indicate that the water control plan has been superseded would eliminate the need to amend the regulations each time the water control plan is modified.flood-control-regulations-marshall-ford-dam-mansfield-dam-and-lake-travis-colorado-river-texasFR-Doc-2014-05252

The Commission assesses annual charges for the use of Federal lands through Part 11 of its regulations. The Commission is proposing to revise the methodology used to compute these annual charges. Under the proposed rule, the Commission would create a fee schedule based on the U.S. Bureau of Land Management's (BLM) methodology for calculating rental rates for linear rights of way. This methodology includes a land value per acre, an encumbrance factor, a rate of return, and an annual adjustment factor. The fee schedule would include all adjustments described in the BLM rule adopting this methodology, except the allocation of county land values into zones. In addition, the Commission proposes to eliminate its current practice of doubling the per-acre rental rate for non-transmission line lands.annual-charges-for-use-of-government-landsFR-Doc-2011-30110

Final Rule Establishing an Administrative Appeal Process for the Regulatory Program of the Corps of EngineersRule00-743903/28/2000Defense DepartmentOn July 19, 1995, the Army Corps of Engineers published notice in the Federal Register of a proposal to establish an administrative appeal process for the regulatory program of the Department of the Army. The comment period expired on … On July 19, 1995, the Army Corps of Engineers published notice in the Federal Register of a proposal to establish an administrative appeal process for the regulatory program of the Department of the Army. The comment period expired on September 5, 1995. The Corps evaluated and addressed the issues raised in comments submitted in response to the proposed rule. In the March 9, 1999, Federal Register, the Corps published a final rule establishing an administrative appeal process for permit denials and declined individual permits. Due to budget constraints, the Corps delayed publication of an administrative appeal process for jurisdictional determinations. On September 29, 1999, the President signed the Corps Fiscal Year 2000 appropriations bill which provided funds to administer a one-step appeal process for jurisdictional determinations. The final rule published today establishes a one step administrative appeal process for jurisdictional determinations. In addition, minor changes have been made to clarify the administrative appeal process for permit denials and declined individual permits. These revised regulations contain the complete administrative appeal process for jurisdictional determinations, permit denials, and declined individual permits.https://www.federalregister.gov/documents/2000/03/28/00-7439/final-rule-establishing-an-administrative-appeal-process-for-the-regulatory-program-of-the-corps-ofFR-Doc-00-7439
