Proposed Action The Coast Guard published a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking for ‘‘Salvage and Marine Firefighting Requirements; Vessel Response Plans for Oil’’ in the Federal Register on May 10, 2002 (67 FR 31868). Please refer to this Notice of Proposed Rulemaking for a summary of the regulatory history behind that Notice of Proposed Rulemaking. The Notice of Proposed Rulemaking is available in the DOT docket. During the comment period on the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking, we received comments both in the docket and at public meetings challenging our reliance upon an environmental analysis done in 1992 to support the publication of the original vessel response plan requirements. These comments argued that it was old and out of date, and missing pieces that would be required of an Environmental Assessment done today. We reviewed those comments, as well as the old Environmental assessment/Finding of No Significant Impact, and determined that while the original study remains valid for the non-salvage portion of the vessel response plan we should conduct a new Environmental Analysis before finalizing the salvage and marine firefighting rulemaking. Draft Programmatic Environmental Assessment We have prepared a draft Programmatic Environmental Assessment. See ‘‘Viewing the comments and draft Programmatic Environmental Assessment’’ above. The draft Programmatic Environmental Assessment identifies and examines the reasonable alternatives and assesses their potential environmental impact. We are requesting your comments on environmental concerns that you may have related to the Programmatic Environmental Assessment. This includes suggesting analyses and methodologies for use in the Programmatic Environmental Assessment or possible sources of data or information not included in the draft Programmatic Environmental Assessment. Your comments will be considered in preparing the final Programmatic Environmental Assessment. PO 00000 Frm 00041 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Dated: December 27, 2005. Craig E.

[FR Doc. E5–8198 Filed 12–30–05; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 4310–6W–P DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIOR Minerals Management Service Federal Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) Administrative Boundaries Extending from the Submerged Lands Act Boundary seaward to the Limit of the United States Outer Continental Shelf AGENCY: Minerals Management Service (MMS), Interior. ACTION: Setting Federal OCS offshore administrative boundaries beyond State submerged lands for Department of the Interior planning, coordination, and administrative purposes. SUMMARY: This notice informs the public that the MMS has developed offshore administrative lines from each adjoining coastal state as described below. Having these lines in place provides various benefits, including: 1. Enhancing the Secretary’s ability to ensure that the ‘‘4–C’s’’— communication, consultation and cooperation, all in support of conservation—are considered as she engages in efforts to identify which State has the most interest in the extended area offshore from its coastline because of the increasing number of commercial activities on the Federal OCS, such as permits for liquefied natural gas facilities, wind power, and wave energy; 2. Providing the basis for more accurate delineation of OCS planning areas; 3. Assisting in ‘‘affected State’’ status under the Coastal Zone Management Act and the OCS Lands Act. For example, section 18 of the OCS Lands Act requires the Secretary to consider the ‘‘laws, goals, and policies of affected States.’’ Similarly, section 19 analysis requires the Secretary to balance national interests with the ‘‘well-being of the citizens of the affected State’’; 4. Providing a more accurate basis for the Secretary to consider support for, or objections to, a State’s request to analyze leasing off its shores. Without such administrative lines, it is difficult to define these areas accurately; 5. Assisting in the section 18 comparative analysis to determine ‘‘an equitable sharing of developmental PO 00000 Frm 00042 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 127 benefits and environmental risks among regions.’’ Such lines will more accurately define the necessary assumptions of what are ‘‘regions’’; and 6. Helping define appropriate consultation and information sharing with States. For example, section 19(e) authorizes cooperative agreement with affected States for such activities as information sharing, joint planning, review of plans, and environmental monitoring. This is even more important with the recent passage of the Energy Policy Act of 2005 which gave the MMS the authority to permit alternative and renewable energy projects on the OCS. Many of these projects will be located in areas in which the MMS has not recently been active. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Renee Orr, Chief, Leasing Division, telephone 703–787–1215. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background The MMS undertook this task in light of the increasing number and type of both traditional and non-traditional energy, alternative energy-related, and other activities on the OCS. Such activities include sand and gravel dredging; liquefied natural gas handling facilities; wind, wave, and current energy generation projects; and mariculture, as well as other innovative uses of the sea, seabed, existing oil and gas operations, and OCS oil and gas infrastructure that may be pursued in the future. Therefore, the MMS believes that it is appropriate to delineate offshore administrative lines at this time. Methodology Over the past two years, the MMS, National Ocean Service, and Department of State have been updating the National Baseline which provides the basis for developing international jurisdictions, such as the Territorial Sea, Contiguous Zone, and Exclusive Economic Zone, as well as a basis for the proposed boundaries seaward of the Submerged Lands Act state waters. We have used, to the extent practicable, the updated National Baseline to derive offshore administrative boundaries in compliance with accepted cartographic practice. The MMS has used the computational software known as CARIS LOTS ‘‘Limits and Boundaries.’’ One of the many features of this software is that it takes a predetermined baseline and determines boundaries for states with an equidistant line for states that are adjacent or a median line for opposite states, based on geodetic calculations.
