Notice of Call for Nominations for the Steens Mountain Advisory

AGENCY: Bureau of Land Management, Interior.

ACTION: Notice: Solicitation of applications.


SUMMARY: The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is requesting public
nominations to fill two unexpired terms on the Steens Mountain Advisory
Council (SMAC). Nominations will be accepted for a person who is a
recreational permit holder or is a representative of a commercial
recreation operation in the Steens Mountain Cooperative Management and
Protection Area (CMPA); and a person with expertise and interest in
wild horse management on Steens Mountain.

DATES: Send all nominations to the address listed below no later than
September 6, 2007.

the closing date listed above.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The SMAC advises the BLM on the management
of the Steens Mountain CMPA as described in Public Law 106-399. Each
member will be a person who, as a result of training and experience,
has knowledge or special expertise that qualifies him or her to provide
advice from the categories of interest identified above.
    The SMAC members are normally appointed to 3-year terms. The wild
horse management and the recreational permit holder positions are
currently vacant; therefore, newly-appointed members will complete the
unexpired portion of these terms. The wild horse management position
expires in October 2008, and the recreational permit holder position
expires in October 2009.
    The SMAC members serve without monetary compensation, but are
reimbursed for travel and per diem expenses at current rates for
government employees. The SMAC meets only at the call of the Designated
Federal Official, but not less than once per year.
    The following must accompany all nominations: A completed
background information nomination form; letters of reference from the

be reviewed by the County Court of Harney County and the BLM. The BLM
will then forward recommended nominations to the Secretary of the
Interior, who has responsibility for making the appointments.
