SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Previous Federal Actions

    We established a nonessential experimental population of Mexican
wolves in 1998 (63 FR 1752, January 12, 1998) pursuant to section 10(j)
of the Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended (16 U.S.C. 1531 et
seq.).
    On August 7, 2007, we published a notice of intent in the Federal
Register (72 FR 44065) to initiate the planning process for preparation
of an environmental impact statement (EIS), pursuant to the National
Environmental Policy Act (NEPA 42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq.), to modify our
Mexican wolf nonessential experimental population designation (63 FR
1752, January 12, 1998). We held 12 public informational sessions in
the communities and on the dates listed in our scoping report, which is
available at http://www.fws.gov/southwest/es/mexicanwolf/documents.cfm
and at http://www.regulations.gov at Docket No. FWS-R2-ES-2013-0098.
    On June 13, 2013, we published a proposed rule to revise our
existing Mexican wolf nonessential experimental population designation
(78 FR 35719).
