ACTION: Decision not to initiate investigation. AGENCY: SUMMARY: The United States Trade Representative (USTR) has determined VerDate jul<14>2003 15:52 Aug 08, 2005 Jkt 205001 not to initiate an investigation under section 302 of the Trade Act of 1974 with respect to a petition addressed to China’s currency valuation policies because initiation of an investigation would not be effective in addressing the issues raised in the petition. DATES: Effective May 27, 2005. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Terrence McCartin, Senior Director of Monitoring and Enforcement for China, (202) 395–3900; or William Busis, Associate General Counsel and Chairman of the Section 301 Committee, (202) 395–3150. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On April 20, 2005, the Congressional China Currency Action Coalition filed a petition pursuant to section 302(a)(1) of the Trade Act of 1974, as amended (the Trade Act), alleging that certain acts, policies and practices of the Government of China with respect to the valuation of China’s currency deny and violate international legal rights of the United States, are unjustifiable, and burden or restrict U.S. commerce. In particular, the petition alleged that China’s acts, policies and practices that maintain a fixed exchange rate vis a vis the U.S. dollar have resulted in a significant undervaluation of China’s currency. The petition alleged that these acts, policies and practices amount: To a prohibited export subsidy under the Agreement on Subsidies and Countervailing Measures and articles VI and XVI of the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade 1994 (GATT 1994); to exchange action under article XV of the GATT 1994 that frustrates the intent of articles I, II, III, and XI of the GATT 1994; and to subsidies that are inconsistent with China’s obligations under articles 3, 9, and 10 of the Agreement on Agriculture. The petition also alleged that these acts, policies and practices of China violate international legal rights of the United States under articles IV and VIII of the Articles of Agreement of the International Monetary Fund, and that they burden or restrict U.S. commerce by, among other things, suppressing U.S. manufacturing for domestic consumption and the growth in U.S. exports. On May 27, 2005, the USTR determined not to initiate an investigation under section 302 of the Trade Act because, among other reasons, an investigation would not be effective in addressing the acts, policies, and practices covered in the petition. The Administration is currently involved in efforts to address with the Government of China the currency valuation issues raised in the petition. The USTR believes that initiation of an PO 00000 Frm 00128 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 46259 investigation under section 302 would hamper, rather than advance, Administration efforts to address China’s currency valuation policies. William Busis, Chairman, Section 301 Committee.

ACTION: Notice to hold one (1) public scoping meeting and one (1) Governmental/Public agency scoping meeting. AGENCY: SUMMARY: The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is issuing this notice to advise the public that a joint Environmental Impact Statement/ Environmental Impact Report (EIS/EIR) will be prepared for proposed development included in the Sacramento County Airport Systems (SCAS) Master Plan (Master Plan) for Sacramento International Airport (SMF), Sacramento, California. To ensure that all significant issues related to the proposed action are identified, one (1) public scoping meeting and one (1) governmental and public agency scoping meeting will be held. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Camille Garibaldi, Environmental Protection Specialist, SFO–613, Planning and Programming Section, Federal Aviation Administration, Western-Pacific Region, San Francisco Airports District Office, 831 Mitten Road, Suite 210, Burlingame, California 94010–1303, telephone: (650) 876–2778 ext. 613; fax: (650) 876–2733. Comments VerDate jul<14>2003 15:52 Aug 08, 2005 Jkt 205001 on the scope of the EIS should be submitted to the address or fax above and must be received no later than 5 p.m. Pacific daylight time, Friday, September 23, 2005. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Sacramento International Airport (SMF) is a commercial service airport located within a metropolitan area in the northwest corner of Sacramento County and is operated by SCAS. SMF currently has two parallel 8,600 feet long and 150 feet wide runways oriented in a north/ south direction. In February of 2004, the Sacramento County Board of Supervisors recommended the SMF Master Plan for environmental review. The SMF Master Plan includes proposed improvements to be implemented at the airport in two phases. SCAS subsequently submitted a revised airport layout plan (ALP), reflecting the proposed first phase of development to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for approval. A joint EIS/EIR will be developed by FAA and SCAS that identifies and analyzes the potential significance of impacts of the proposed improvements in accordance with federal and state law. As the lead federal agency, FAA will prepare an Environmental Impact Statement for first phase projects included in the ALP. The need to prepare an EIS is based on the procedures described in section 501 of FAA Order 1050.1E, Environmental Impacts: Policies and Procedures and FAA Order 5050.4A, Airport Environmental Handbook. The federal actions that cause the FAA to prepare an EIS are the approval for the ALP depicting the proposed development and the further processing of an application for federal funding or passenger facility charges to finance the proposed projects by Sacramento County. In making this decision, the FAA based the need for an EIS on its preliminary review of possible noise, wetland and endangered species impacts the proposed action could cause. In addition, the County of Sacramento, Department of Environmental Review and Assessment (DERA), as the lead state agency, will prepare an Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for both phases of the recommended Master Plan improvements, pursuant to the California Environmental Quality Act of 1970 (CEQA). The proposed Phase I projects include: PO 00000 Frm 00129 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Airfield Improvements • Extension of Runway 16L34R from 8,600 feet wide to 11,000 feet long by 159 feet wide. • Establishment of a new Instrument Landing System (ILS) for Runway 34R and relocation of the ILS for Runway 16L. • Construction of a new south crossfield Taxiway Y. • Construction of Air Cargo Improvements and Terminal Apron. • Airport Traffic Control Tower Relocation. • Construction of a new Passenger Terminal Apron. Land Side and Airport Support Improvements • New Passenger Terminal. • On-airport and access road improvements. • Construction of passenger facilities such as a Hotel, Parking Garage, and Rental Car facilities. • Construction of maintenance facility improvements, such as a new General Services Building and Equipment Maintenance Building. Land Acquisition • Acquire 707 acres for approach protection and future airport growth. Alternatives: The alternatives being considered in the EIS/EIR include the No-Action Alternative; the Proposed Action Alternative; various physical configurations of proposed improvements, such as the extension of Runway 16R/34L rather than 16L/34R; and use of other existing airports. During scoping, FAA and SCAS will seek comments and input from Federal, State and local agencies, and other interested parties to ensure the EIS/EIR addresses a full range of issues related to the proposed projects and alternatives. Written comments and suggestions concerning the scope of the EIS may be mailed or faxed to the FAA contact listed above and must be received no later than 5 p.m. Pacific daylight time, Friday, September 23, 2005. Public Scoping Meeting: The FAA will hold one (1) public and one (1) governmental agency scoping meeting to solicit input from the public and various Federal, State, and local agencies having jurisdiction by law or having specific expertise with respect to any environmental impacts associated with the proposed projects. the public scoping meeting will be held on Thursday, September 8, 2005, at Public Television station KVIE’s OSE Community Room, 2595 Capital Oaks Drive, Sacramento, California 95833.
