In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, this notice seeks comments concerning Excess Federal Real Property Program application. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The purpose of the Excess Federal Real Property Program is to convey at no cost to State and local governments excess Federal real property that the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) determines can be used for emergency management response purposes in perpetuity. The Federal Property and Administrative Services Act of 1949, as amended, 40 U.S.C. 553, (formerly 40 U.S.C. 484(p)), authorizes the Administrator of the General Services Administration (GSA) to transfer or convey (without monetary consideration) Federal real and related surplus property needed for emergency management response purposes, including fire rescue services. GSA’s implementing regulations are contained in 41 CFR part 1201–47. Collection of Information Title: Excess Federal Real Property Program Application. Type of Information Collection: Extension of a currently approved collection. OMB Number: 1660–0080. Form Number: FF 60–25. Abstract: GSA provides announcements to FEMA and to State, local and Tribal governments concerning available Federal surplus real property for emergency management response use purposes including fire and rescue services. An applicant must notify the disposal agency such as GSA Regional and Headquarters offices, the Department of Defense (DOD) Base Realignment Closure (BRAC) Offices, and FEMA Regional and Headquarters offices of its intent to acquire the property. The notification should occur within 20 days after notification of property availability. States, the District of Columbia, any territory or possession of the United States, or any political subdivision or instrumentality thereof, may apply for the transfer or conveyance of surplus real property for emergency management response use purposes. An applicant must formally submit a completed Excess Federal Real Property Program application including supporting documentation to FEMA. After receiving this information, FEMA will then determine if the requested excess Federal real property is required for emergency management response use. The application processes designed to ensure that the applicant’s proposed use of the Federal real property is for emergency management use as an integral part of applicable State, local and Tribal government plans. The completed application form is designed to ensure that the applicant conforms to GSA and DOD regulatory conditions. Affected Public: State, local or Tribal government.

ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: SUMMARY: Each year FEMA is required by the Write-Your-Own (‘‘WYO’’) program Financial Assistance/Subsidy Arrangement (‘‘Arrangement’’) to notify the private insurance companies (‘‘Companies’’) and make available to the Companies the terms for subscription or re-subscription to the Arrangement. In keeping with that requirement, this notice provides the terms to the Companies to subscribe or re-subscribe to the Arrangement. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Edward L. Connor, FEMA, 500 C Street, SW., Washington, DC 20472, 202–646– 3429 (Phone), 202–646–3445 (facsimile), or Edward.Connor@dhs.gov (e-mail). SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Under the Arrangement, approximately 90 private sector property insurers issue flood insurance policies and adjust flood insurance claims under their own names based on the Arrangement with the Federal Insurance Administration (FIA) (44 CFR part 62, appendix A). The WYO insurers receive an expense allowance and remit the remaining premium to the Federal Government. The Federal Government pays WYO insurers for flood losses and pays loss adjustment expenses based on a fee schedule. Litigation costs, including court costs, attorney fees, judgments, and settlements, are paid by FIA based on submitted documentation. The Arrangement provides that under certain circumstances reimbursement for litigation costs will not be made. The complete Arrangement is published in 44 CFR part 62, appendix A. Each year FEMA is required to publish in the Federal Register and make available to the Companies the terms for subscription or re-subscription to the Financial Assistance/Subsidy Arrangement. During the 2005–2006 Arrangement year FEMA published (70 FR 55915, Sept. 23, 2005) notice of the changes to the Arrangement. No changes have been made to the Arrangement since the publication of the previous notice. E:\FR\FM\18SEN1.SGM 18SEN1
