SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background In a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking published in the Federal Register (70 FR 43808) on July 29, 2005, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Bureau of Customs and Border Protection (CBP), proposed to amend 19 CFR 101.3(b)(1) by establishing a new port of entry at Tri-Cities Regional Airport and the area which it services in the states of Tennessee and Virginia. The new port of entry was proposed to include the same geographical boundaries of the current CBP User Fee Port No. 2082, which encompasses Sullivan County, Tennessee; Washington County, Tennessee; and Washington County, Virginia. The boundaries were also to include TriCities Regional Airport, located in Blountville, Tennessee, which currently operates, and is listed, as a user-fee airport at 19 CFR 122.15(b). CBP proposed the establishment of the new port of entry because the TriCities area satisfies the current criteria for port of entry designations as set forth in Treasury Decision (T.D.) 82–37 (Revision of Customs Criteria for Establishing Ports of Entry and Stations, 47 FR 10137), as revised by T.D. 86–14 (51 FR 4559) and T.D. 87–65 (52 FR 16328). Under these criteria, CBP evaluates whether there is a sufficient volume of import business (actual or potential) to justify the expense of maintaining a new office or expanding service at an existing location. The proposed rule set forth how the TriCities area meets the criteria. Analysis of Comments and Conclusion CBP did not receive any comments in response to the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking. As CBP continues to believe that the establishment of a new port of entry at Tri-Cities Regional Airport, and the area which it services in the states of Tennessee and Virginia, will assist CBP in its continuing efforts to provide better service to carriers, importers and the general public, CBP is E:\FR\FM\16MYR1.SGM 16MYR1 28262 Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 94 / Tuesday, May 16, 2006 / Rules and Regulations establishing the new port of entry as proposed and Tri-Cities Regional Airport will lose its status as a user-fee airport.

A PASS allows some persons who receive or are eligible for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) disability benefits to set aside part of their income and/or resources to meet an employment goal.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    In a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking published in the Federal 
Register (70 FR 43808) on July 29, 2005, the Department of Homeland 
Security (DHS), Bureau of Customs and Border Protection (CBP), proposed 
to amend 19 CFR 101.3(b)(1) by establishing a new port of entry at Tri-
Cities Regional Airport and the area which it services in the states of 
Tennessee and Virginia. The new port of entry was proposed to include 
the same geographical boundaries of the current CBP User Fee Port No. 
2082, which encompasses Sullivan County, Tennessee; Washington County, 
Tennessee; and Washington County, Virginia. The boundaries were also to 
include Tri-Cities Regional Airport, located in Blountville, Tennessee, 
which currently operates, and is listed, as a user-fee airport at 19 
CFR 122.15(b).
    CBP proposed the establishment of the new port of entry because the 
Tri-Cities area satisfies the current criteria for port of entry 
designations as set forth in Treasury Decision (T.D.) 82-37 (Revision 
of Customs Criteria for Establishing Ports of Entry and Stations, 47 FR 
10137), as revised by T.D. 86-14 (51 FR 4559) and T.D. 87-65 (52 FR 
16328). Under these criteria, CBP evaluates whether there is a 
sufficient volume of import business (actual or potential) to justify 
the expense of maintaining a new office or expanding service at an 
existing location. The proposed rule set forth how the Tri-Cities area 
meets the criteria.

Analysis of Comments and Conclusion

    CBP did not receive any comments in response to the Notice of 
Proposed Rulemaking. As CBP continues to believe that the establishment 
of a new port of entry at Tri-Cities Regional Airport, and the area 
which it services in the states of Tennessee and Virginia, will assist 
CBP in its continuing efforts to provide better service to carriers, 
importers and the general public, CBP is

establishing the new port of entry as proposed and Tri-Cities Regional 
Airport will lose its status as a user-fee airport. The change of 
status for Tri-Cities Regional Airport from a user-fee airport to 
inclusion within the boundaries of a port of entry will subject the 
airport to the passenger processing fee provided for at 19 U.S.C. 
58c(a)(5)(B).

Description of the New Port of Entry Limits

    The geographical limits of the Tri-Cities, TNNA, port of entry are 
as follows:
    The contiguous outer boundaries of Sullivan County, Tennessee; 
Washington County, Tennessee; and Washington County, Virginia.

Authority

    This change is made under the authority of 5 U.S.C. 301 and 19 
U.S.C. 2, 66, and 1624, and the Homeland Security Act of 2002, Public 
Law 107-296 (November 25, 2002).

The Regulatory Flexibility Act and Executive Order 12866

    With DHS approval, CBP establishes, expands and consolidates CBP 
ports of entry throughout the United States to accommodate the volume 
of CBP-related activity in various parts of the country. This final 
rule is not a significant regulatory action within the meaning of 
Executive Order 12866. This action also will not have a significant 
economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. Accordingly, 
DHS certifies that this document is not subject to the additional 
requirements of the provisions of the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 
U.S.C. 601 et seq.).

Signing Authority

    The signing authority for this document falls under 19 CFR 0.2(a) 
because the establishment of a new port of entry and the termination of 
the user-fee status of an airport are not within the bounds of those 
regulations for which the Secretary of the Treasury has retained sole 
authority. Accordingly, this final rule may be signed by the Secretary 
of Homeland Security (or his or her delegate).
