We are announcing our intent to remove two required amendments to the Kentucky regulatory program (hereinafter, the ``Kentucky program'') under the Surface Mining Control and Reclamation Act of 1977 (SMCRA or the Act). As a result of OSM's review of the Kentucky program concerning its regulations and procedures relating to Ownership and Control, and Transfer, Assignment or Sale of Permit Rights, OSM has determined that two previously required amendments can be removed. Kentucky's program with regard to Ownership and Control, and Transfer, Assignment, or Sale of Permit Rights, is now consistent with the corresponding Federal regulations and SMCRA. This document gives the times and locations that the Kentucky program is available for your inspection, the comment period during which you may submit written comments, and the procedures that we will follow for the public hearing, if one is requested.
Agency Contact: Joseph L. Blackburn, Telephone: (859) 260-3900. Email: email@example.com.
This is a proposed regulation. Comments were due on October 19, 2012.
