SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Federal Emergency Management Agency

appeals resulting from this notification.
    The modified BFEs are not listed for each community in this notice. 
However, this rule includes the address of the Chief Executive Officer 
of the community where the modified BFE determinations are available

    The modifications are made pursuant to section 206 of the Flood

with the National Flood Insurance Act of 1968, 42 U.S.C. 4001 et seq., 
and with 44 CFR part 65.
    For rating purposes, the currently effective community number is 
shown and must be used for all new policies and renewals.
    The modified BFEs are the basis for the floodplain management 
measures that the community is required to either adopt or to show 
evidence of being already in effect in order to qualify or to remain 
qualified for participation in the National Flood Insurance Program 
(NFIP).
    These modified BFEs, together with the floodplain management 
criteria required by 44 CFR 60.3, are the minimum that are required. 
They should not be construed to mean that the community must change any 
existing ordinances that are more stringent in their floodplain 
management requirements. The community may at any time enact stricter 
requirements of its own, or pursuant to policies established by other 
Federal, State, or regional entities.
    These modified BFEs are used to meet the floodplain management 
requirements of the NFIP and are also used to calculate the appropriate 
flood insurance premium rates for new buildings built after these 
elevations are made final, and for the contents in these buildings.
    The changes in BFEs are in accordance with 44 CFR 65.4.
    National Environmental Policy Act. This rule is categorically 
excluded from the requirements of 44 CFR part 10, Environmental 
Consideration. No environmental impact assessment has been prepared.
    Regulatory Flexibility Act. The Mitigation Division Director 
certifies that this rule is exempt from the requirements of the 
Regulatory Flexibility Act because modified base flood elevations are 
required by the Flood Disaster Protection Act of 1973, 42 U.S.C. 4105, 
and are required to maintain community eligibility in the NFIP. No 
regulatory flexibility analysis has been prepared.
    Regulatory Classification. This final rule is not a significant 
regulatory action under the criteria of section 3(f) of Executive Order 
12866 of September 30, 1993, Regulatory Planning and Review, 58 FR
