Therefore, effective immediately, for all claims paid in cash on mortgages insured under section 203 or 234 of the National Housing Act and endorsed for insurance after January 23, 2004, the debenture interest rate will be the monthly average yield, for the month in which the default on the mortgage occurred, on United States Treasury Securities adjusted to a constant maturity of 10 years, as found in Federal Reserve Statistical Release H–15.

ACTION: Notice of Availability. AGENCY: SUMMARY: The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service) announces that the draft Comprehensive Conservation Plan (CCP) and Environmental Assessment (EA) for the Great Dismal Swamp National Wildlife Refuge (NWR) is available for review. The CCP/EA includes Nansemond NWR, an unstaffed refuge managed by the Great Dismal Swamp NWR. The Service prepared this CCP/EA in compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, and the National Wildlife Refuge System Administration Act of 1966, as amended by the National Wildlife Refuge System Improvement Act of 1997 (16 U.S.C. 668dd, et seq.). This notice also advises the public that the Service is withdrawing a previous notice, published in 2002, stating that an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) would be developed for the refuge complex. After completing the environmental analysis, we determined that an EIS is not warranted. DATES: The draft CCP/EA will be available for public review and comment for a 30-day period starting with the publication of this notice. ADDRESSES: Copies of the draft CCP/EA on compact diskette or in print may be obtained by writing or visiting Great Dismal Swamp NWR, 3100 Desert Road, Suffolk, Virginia 23434, or you may download an electronic copy from the PO 00000 Frm 00039 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 12709 http://library.fws.gov/ccps.htm Web site. We plan to host three public meetings in the Cities of Suffolk and Chesapeake, Virginia, and in Camden and Gates Counties in North Carolina. We will announce the details at least 2 weeks in advance in local papers and post them at the refuge. Comments should be submitted to Deloras Freeman, Great Dismal Swamp NWR, 3100 Desert Road, Suffolk, Virginia 23434, by fax at 757–986–2353, or email at deloras_freeman@fws.gov. Comments via email should include the comments in the body of the email, since email security programs could delete attached files. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Deloras Freeman, Great Dismal Swamp NWR at 787–986–3706 or Bill Perry, Refuge Planner, Northeast Regional Office at 413–253–8371. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The National Wildlife Refuge System Administration Act of 1966, as amended by the National Wildlife Refuge System Improvement Act of 1997, requires the Service to develop a CCP for each refuge. The purpose of developing a CCP describes the desired future conditions of the refuge and provides refuge managers with a 15-year strategy for achieving refuge purposes and contributing to the mission of the National Wildlife Refuge System, in conformance with the sound principles of fish and wildlife science, natural resources conservation, legal mandates, and Service policies. In addition to outlining broad management direction on conserving wildlife and habitats, CCPs identify wildlife-dependent recreational opportunities available to the public, including opportunities for hunting, fishing, wildlife observation and photography, and environmental education and interpretation. The Service will review and update each CCP at least once every 15 years, in accordance with the National Wildlife Refuge System Improvement Act of 1997 and the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969. Established in 1974, Great Dismal Swamp NWR encompasses 111,201 acres, the largest intact remnant of a vast habitat that once covered more than one million acres of southeastern Virginia and northeastern North Carolina. The Nansemond NWR, established December 12, 1973, is an unstaffed satellite refuge encompassing 423 acres. The draft CCP/EA analyzes three alternatives for managing the refuge over the next 15 years. Alternative A (the ‘‘No Action’’ Alternative) would continue our present management and provides a baseline for comparing and E:\FR\FM\13MRN1.SGM 13MRN1

Act--Debenture Interest Rates

AGENCY: Office of the Assistant Secretary for Housing--Federal Housing 
Commissioner, HUD.

ACTION: Notice.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: This notice announces changes in the interest rates to be paid 
on debentures issued with respect to a loan or mortgage insured by the 
Federal Housing Administration under the provisions of the National 
Housing Act (the Act). The interest rate for debentures issued under 
section 221(g)(4) of the Act during the 6-month period beginning 
January 1, 2006, is 5\1/8\ percent. The interest rate for debentures 
issued under any other provision of the Act is the rate in effect on 
the date that the commitment to insure the loan or mortgage was issued, 
or the date that the loan or mortgage was endorsed (or initially 
endorsed if there are two or more endorsements) for insurance, 
whichever rate is higher. The interest rate for debentures issued under 
these other provisions with respect to a loan or mortgage committed or 
endorsed during the 6-month period beginning January 1, 2006, is 4\7/8\ 
percent. However, as a result of an amendment to section 224 of the 
Act, if an insurance claim relating to a mortgage insured under 
sections 203 or 234 of the Act and endorsed for insurance after January 
23, 2004, is paid in cash, the debenture interest rate for purposes of 
calculating a claim shall be the monthly average yield, for the month 
in which the default on the mortgage occurred, on United States 
Treasury Securities adjusted to a constant maturity of 10 years.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: L. Richard Keyser, Department of 
Housing and Urban Development, 451 Seventh Street, SW., Room 2232,

toll-free number). Individuals with speech or hearing impairments may 
access this number through TTY by calling the toll-free Federal 
Information Relay Service at (800) 877-8339.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Section 224 of the National Housing Act (12 
U.S.C. 1715o) provides that debentures issued under the Act with 
respect to an insured loan or mortgage (except for debentures issued 
pursuant to section 221(g)(4) of the Act) will bear interest at the 
rate in effect on the date the commitment to insure the loan or 
mortgage was issued, or the date the loan or mortgage was endorsed (or 
initially endorsed if there are two or more endorsements) for 
insurance, whichever rate is higher. This provision is implemented in 
HUD's regulations at 24 CFR 203.405, 203.479, 207.259(e)(6), and 
220.830. These regulatory provisions state that the applicable rates of 
interest will be published twice each year as a notice in the Federal 
Register.
    Section 224 further provides that the interest rate on these 
debentures will be set from time to time by the Secretary of HUD, with 
the approval of the Secretary of the Treasury, in an amount not in 
excess of the annual interest rate determined by the Secretary of the 
Treasury pursuant to a statutory formula based on the average yield of 
all outstanding marketable Treasury obligations of maturities of 15 or 
more years.
    The Secretary of the Treasury (1) has determined, in accordance 
with the provisions of section 224, that the statutory maximum interest 
rate for the period beginning January 1, 2006, is 4 7/8 percent; and 
(2) has approved the establishment of the debenture interest rate by 
the Secretary of HUD at 4 7/8 percent for the 6-month period beginning 
January 1, 2006. This interest rate will be the rate borne by 
debentures issued with respect to any insured loan or mortgage (except 
for debentures issued pursuant to section 221(g)(4)) with insurance 
commitment or endorsement date (as applicable) within the first 6 
months of 2006.
    For convenience of reference, HUD is publishing the following chart 
of debenture interest rates applicable to mortgages committed or 
endorsed since January 1, 1980:

    Section 215 of Division G, Title II of Public Law 108-199, enacted 
January 23, 2004 (HUD's 2004 Appropriations Act) amended section 224 of 
the Act, to change the debenture interest rate for purposes of 
calculating certain insurance claim payments made in cash. Therefore, 
effective immediately, for all claims paid in cash on mortgages insured 
under section 203 or 234 of the National Housing Act and endorsed for 
insurance after January 23, 2004, the debenture interest rate will be 
the monthly average yield, for the month in which the default on the 
mortgage occurred, on United States Treasury Securities adjusted to a 
constant maturity of 10 years, as found in Federal Reserve Statistical 
Release H-15. The Federal Housing Administration is in the process of 
making conforming amendments to applicable regulations to fully 
implement this recent change to section 224 of the Act.
    Section 221(g)(4) of the Act provides that debentures issued 
pursuant to that paragraph (with respect to the assignment of an 
insured mortgage to the Secretary) will bear interest at the ``going 
Federal rate'' in effect at the time the debentures are issued. The 
term ``going Federal rate'' is defined to mean the interest rate that 
the Secretary of the Treasury determines, pursuant to a statutory 
formula based on the average yield on all outstanding marketable 
Treasury obligations of 8- to 12-year maturities, for the 6-month 
periods of January through June and July through December of each year. 
Section 221(g)(4) is implemented in the HUD regulations at 24 CFR 
221.255 and 24 CFR 221.790.
    The Secretary of the Treasury has determined that the interest rate 
to be borne by debentures issued pursuant to section 221(g)(4) during 
the 6-month period beginning January 1, 2006, is 5\1/8\ percent.
    HUD expects to publish its next notice of change in debenture 
interest rates in July 2006.
    The subject matter of this notice falls within the categorical 
exemption from HUD's environmental clearance procedures set forth in 24 
CFR 50.19(c)(6). For that reason, no environmental finding has been
