Summary

Superior National Forest Restoration Act

This bill rescinds Public Land Order No. 7917 for Withdrawal of Federal Lands; Cook, Lake, and Saint Louis Counties, MN, which bars mining operations on specified Forest Service lands in Minnesota.

The bill directs the Forest Service to

  • complete necessary environmental and regulatory review for all mine plans of operations within the Superior National Forest within 18 months of submission; and
  • reissue each cancelled mineral lease, preference right lease, and prospecting permit relating to lands within that forest.

A lease or permit reissued under this provision is not subject to judicial review.
