30 CFR Part 925


Missouri Permanent Regulatory Program

AGENCY: Office of Surface Mining Reclamation and Enforcement (OSM), 

ACTION: Withdrawal of proposed amendment.


SUMMARY: OSM is announcing the withdrawal of a proposed amendment to 
the Missouri permanent regulatory program (hereinafter, the ``Missouri 
program'') under the Surface Mining Control and Reclamation Act of 1977 
(SMCRA). The proposed amendment submitted on September 24, 1993, 
pertains to provisions of Missouri's alternative bonding system 
statute. Missouri is withdrawing this amendment because it intends to 
resubmit a complete package to resolve all remaining concerns 
identified by OSM.

EFFECTIVE DATE: This withdrawal is effective May 31, 1994.

Michael C. Wolfrom; Telephone: (816) 374-6405.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: By letter dated September 24, 1993 
(Administrative Record No. MO-575), Missouri submitted a proposed 
amendment to its program pursuant to SMCRA. The proposed amendment 
revised Missouri statutes concerning its bonding requirements. Missouri 
submitted the proposed amendment with the intent of satisfying the 
required program amendments at 30 CFR 925.16(g).
    On October 18, 1993 (Administrative Record No. MO-580), OSM 
announced receipt of and solicited public comment on the proposed 
program amendment (58 FR 53683). On March 9, 1994 (Administrative 
Record No. MO-592), OSM notified Missouri of concerns it had with the 
proposed program amendment. On April 4, 1994 (Administrative Record No. 
MO-594), Missouri responded to some of OSM's concerns and requested a 
meeting with OSM to discuss others. On May 5, 1994, a public meeting 
was held between OSM and the State of Missouri at the OSM Field Office 
in Kansas City, Missouri (Administrative Record No. MO-597). In follow 
up to discussions at that meeting, Missouri formally requested that the 
proposed amendment be withdrawn in a letter dated May 10, 1994 
(Administrative Record No. MO-598). Missouri proposes to submit a 
complete package of revised statutes, regulations, and other 
information to address all outstanding OSM concerns with the Missouri 
alternative bonding system.
    Therefore, the proposed amendment announced in the October 18, 
1993, Federal Register is withdrawn.
