Download as PDF 27776 Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 92 / Friday, May 12, 2006 / Notices growth of the U.S. space industry, while implementing one of the alternatives could limit U.S. commercial launch and reentry vehicle development and growth, and implementing the no action alternative could severely limit and restrict the growth of the U.S. commercial space launch industry. sroberts on PROD1PC70 with NOTICES Decision and Order 16:54 May 11, 2006 BILLING CODE 4910–13–P DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION Federal Aviation Administration I have considered potential environmental impacts as defined in the PEIS, applicable regulatory requirements, public comments, and FAA’s responsibilities under 49 U.S.C., Subtitle IX, Chapter 701, Commercial Space Launch Activities to promote, encourage, and facilitate the growth of the U.S. commercial space transportation industry in arriving at my decision. Alternatives 1, 2, 3, and the no action alternative would result in restrictive licensing that would impede the FAA’s ability to assist the commercial space transportation industry in meeting projected demand for services and expansion into new markets. The preferred alternative would allow the greatest development and growth of the U.S. commercial space launch industry. In addition, although implementation of the preferred alternative would result in slightly greater environmental impacts than the overall impacts associated with the alternatives and no action alternative, the impacts are still expected to be less than significant. For the reasons summarized earlier in this Record of Decision and supported by detailed discussion in the PEIS, the FAA has selected the preferred alternative. I have carefully considered the FAA’s goals and objectives in relation to the programmatic licensing actions discussed in the PEIS, including the purpose and need to be served, the alternative means of achieving them, the environmental impacts of these alternatives at a broad, programmatic level, and the mitigation measures available to preserve and enhance the environment as needed on a sitespecific basis. I have determined that all practicable means to avoid or minimize environmental harm from the alternatives selected have been adopted. Based upon the record of this proposed Federal action, and under the authority delegated to me by the Administrator of the FAA, I find that the action in this Record of Decision is reasonably supported.
