Endangered and Threatened Wildlife and Plants; Proposed Revision
to the Regulations for the Nonessential Experimental Population of the
Mexican Wolf


AGENCY: Fish and Wildlife Service, Interior.

ACTION: Proposed rule; availability of a final environmental impact
statement and a draft record of decision.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: We, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service), make
available the final environmental impact statement (EIS) on the
proposed revisions to the regulations for the nonessential experimental
population designation of the Mexican wolf and our draft record of
decision (ROD), under the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, as
amended. Our intended action is to revise the regulations established
in our 1998 Final Rule for the nonessential experimental population of
the Mexican wolf. We also propose to extend the authority of the
Mexican Wolf Recovery Program's section 10(a)(1)(A) research and
recovery permit to areas that are outside of the Mexican Wolf
Experimental Population Area. In the EIS we analyzed the environmental
consequences of a range of alternatives, including the Proposed Action
and No Action alternative, for our proposed rule. The action would be
implemented through a final rule, a revised section 10(a)(1)(A)
research and recovery permit, and the provision of Federal funding.

DATES: We will consider comments received on or before December 27,
2014
. Comments submitted electronically using the Federal eRulemaking
Portal (see ADDRESSES) must be received by 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time on
the closing date. We will issue a final ROD no sooner than December 27,
2014.

available electronically on
http://www.regulations.gov in Docket No.
FWS-R2-ES-2013-0056, on the Mexican Wolf Recovery Program's Web site at

making requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969,
as amended.
    We have described all alternatives in detail, and we have evaluated
them in our final EIS. Our draft decision is based on our review of the
alternatives and their environmental consequences as described in our
final EIS.
