Fayetteville/Greenville Expansion Project, Texas Gas 
Transmission, LLC, Right-of-Way Permit Application To Cross Hillside 
National Wildlife Refuge, Holmes County, MS: Withdrawal

AGENCY: Fish and Wildlife Service, Interior.

ACTION: Notice of receipt of right-of-way permit application; 


SUMMARY: We, the Fish and Wildlife Service, published a notice 
requesting public comments on a right-of-way (ROW) permit application 
we received from Texas Gas Transmission, LLC (Texas Gas), to install a 
natural gas pipeline under lands within Hillside National Wildlife 
Refuge (NWR) in Holmes County, MS. The company chose an alternate route 
that bypasses Hillside NWR and no longer seeks a ROW permit from us, 
and has withdrawn its application. Therefore, we are not seeking 
comments on the application.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Ken Clough, Fish and Wildlife Service, 
6578 Dogwood View Parkway, Jackson, MS 39213; by facsimile to (601) 
965-4010; or by e-mail to ken_clough@fws.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On November 3, 2008, we published a Federal 
Register notice (73 FR 65391) announcing the availability of an 
application for a ROW permit by Texas Gas to install a natural gas 
pipeline under lands within Hillside NWR. The application was made 
available for a 30-day review and comment period. Because Texas Gas has 
abandoned the route that would have crossed the refuge in favor of an 
alternate route which bypasses the refuge, the review and comment 
period has been cancelled.

    Authority: We publish this notice under 30 U.S.C. 185 (k).

    Dated: November 10, 2008.
Cynthia K. Dohner,
Acting Regional Director.
