Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 164 / Thursday, August 24, 2006 / Notices AFB, beginning October 2007, as the new mission for that base. The EIS will analyze the impacts of that proposed action on the environment. AFSOC is considering what aircraft and other equipment to base at Cannon AFB, how best to utilize existing facilities, and what facilities will need to be modified or built. The proposed action will consider moving approximately 90 aircraft and approximately 3,500 personnel to the base. It is possible that additional facilities may need to be constructed at Melrose AFR. The impacts from the proposed actions will be considered in the EIS. In addition, the EIS will also address alternatives to the proposed action, including a ‘‘no action’’ alternative. Because the proposed action is to be taken as the result of the BRAC directive to the SECDEF to designate a new mission for Cannon AFB, the basing/installation alternative will be limited to the confines of Cannon AFB and Melrose AFR; however, the airspace alternatives will include Melrose AFR, surrounding Military Training Routes and Military Operations Areas (MOAs) including the Mt Dora MOA, Pecos MOA Complex and Bronco MOA. The Air Force will hold a series of scoping meetings to solicit public input concerning the scope of the proposed action and alternatives, as well as to help identify other concerns and issues to be addressed in the environmental analysis. The scheduled dates, times, locations, and addresses for the scoping meetings are as follows: 1. September 18, 2006—Monday, 6–8 p.m., at Clovis and Portales, NM, Clovis Community College, 417 Schepps Blvd. 2. September 19, 2006—Tuesday, 6–8 p.m., at Clayton, NM, Clayton High School, 323 South Fifth Street. 3. September 20, 2006—Wednesday, 6–8 p.m., at Fort Sumner, NM, Fort Sumner Community House, 137 East Baker Avenue. No additional meetings are scheduled at this time. In addition to comments received at the scoping meetings, any written comments on the scope of the EIS received at the address below by October 5, 2006, will be considered in the preparation of this EIS.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Steven Mintz (Program Office) 202–586– 9506 or Michael Skinker (Program Attorney) 202–586–2793. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Exports of electricity from the United States to a foreign country are regulated and require authorization under section 202(e) of the Federal Power Act (FPA) (16 U.S.C. 824a(e)). On April 8, 2002, the Department of Energy (DOE) issued Order No. EA-260 authorizing EMC to transmit electric energy from the United States to Canada as a power marketer using existing international electric transmission facilities. That two-year authorization expired on April 8, 2004. On July 8, 2004, DOE received an application from EMC to renew its authorization to transmit electric energy from the United States to Canada. On October 13, 2004, PO 00000 Frm 00025 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 that renewal was granted in Order No. EA–260–A and will expire on April 9, 2009. On July 13, 2006, DOE received an application from EMC to voluntarily transfer its export authority to EEM. EEM was formed to assume the duties previously undertaken by EMC, including the exporting of electric energy to Canada. EEM is a Delaware corporation with its principal place of business in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. EEM is an indirect, wholly-owned subsidiary of EPCOR Utilities Inc. of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. EEM is a power marketer that does not own or control any electric generation or transmission facilities nor does it have a franchised service territory in the United States. In OE Docket No. EA–260–B, EEM proposes to export electric energy to Canada and to arrange for the delivery of those exports over the international transmission facilities currently owned by Basin Electric Power Cooperative, Bonneville Power Administration, Eastern Maine Electric Cooperative, International Transmission Company, Joint Owners of the Highgate Project, Long Sault, Inc., Maine Electric Power Company, Maine Public Service Company, Minnesota Power, Inc., Minnkota Power Cooperative, New York Power Authority, Niagara Mohawk Power Corporation, Northern States Power, and Vermont Electric Transmission Company and Vermont Electric Transmission Co. The construction of each of the international transmission facilities to be utilized by EEM, as more fully described in its application, has previously been authorized by a Presidential permit issued pursuant to Executive Order 10485, as amended. The applicant has requested expedited processing of this application so that it may proceed with the proposed transfer. Accordingly, DOE has shortened the public comment period to 15 days. Procedural Matters: Any person desiring to become a party to this proceeding or to be heard by filing comments or protests to this application should file a petition to intervene, comment or protest at the address provided above in accordance with 385.211 or 385.214 of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission’s Rules of Practice and Procedures (18 CFR 385.211, 385.214).
