SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: Transportation, Community, and System Preservation Program Grant Application. Transportation Planning Excellence Awards Nomination Form. Background: Transportation, Community, and System Preservation Program Grant. Application: Section 1117 of the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users (SAFETEA–LU) provides funding for the Transportation, Community, and System Preservation (TCSP) Program. The TCSP Program is a comprehensive initiative of research and grants to investigate the relationships between transportation, community, and system preservation plans and practices and identify sector-based initiatives to improve such relationships. States, metropolitan planning organizations, local governments, and tribal governments are eligible for discretionary grants to carry out eligible projects to integrate transportation, community, and system preservation plans and practices that: • Improve the efficiency of the transportation system of the United States. • Reduce environmental impacts of transportation. • Reduce the need for costly future public infrastructure investments. • Ensure efficient access to jobs, services, and centers of trade. • Examine community development patterns and identify strategies to encourage private sector development patterns and investments that support these goals. The 2-page TCSP grant application is the tool used to collect the necessary information needed to successfully VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:24 Nov 02, 2006 Jkt 211001 submit eligible TCSP Program projects to the Secretary of Transportation for approval and for the distribution of the funds to the States. The TCSP grant application includes three parts: (A) Project Information—General contact and funding information, (B) Project Abstract—Overview of the purpose and intent of project, and (C) Project Narrative—Description of the project and the expected results. The TCSP Program is a discretionary program. However, beginning in FY 2000, the projects awarded TCSP Program funding have been designated by Congress. In order to comply with Congressional-designation, the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) Division offices will continue to be asked to identify the intended recipient of the TCSP designated grant. The specified grant recipient would then be asked to complete the grant application each fiscal year that they receive TCSP funding. The participants will have a choice of providing their information by means of the Internet or a printed application. Transportation Planning Excellence Awards Nomination Form: The Transportation Planning Excellence Awards (TPEA) program is a biennial awards program developed by the FHWA and the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) to recognize outstanding initiatives across the country to develop, plan and implement innovative transportation planning practices. The program is co-sponsored by the American Planning Association. The on-line TPEA nomination form is the tool for submitters to nominate a process, group, or individual involved in a project or process that has used the FHWA and/or the FTA funding sources to make an outstanding contribution to the field of transportation planning. The information about the process, group or individual provided by the submitter may be shared and published if that submission is selected for an award. The TPEA is a biennial awards program and individuals will be asked to submit nominations via the online form every two years. The participants will provide their information by means of the Internet. Respondents: For the TCSP Program, 100 participants annually. For the TPEA, 150 participants in the first and third year, because it is a biennial program. Frequency: For the TCSP Program, grant applications are solicited on an annual basis. For the TPEA, nominations are solicited every two years. Estimated Average Burden per Response: For the TCSP Program, 90 PO 00000 Frm 00078 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 minutes. For the TPEA Program, approximately 60 minutes. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: For the TCSP Program, 150 hours annually. For the TPEA, 150 hours in the first year and 150 hours in the third year. Public Comments Invited: You are asked to comment on any aspect of this information collection, including: (1) Whether the proposed collection is necessary for the FHWA’s performance; (2) the accuracy of the estimated burdens; (3) ways for the FHWA to enhance the quality, usefulness, and clarity of the collected information; and (4) ways that the burden could be minimized, including the use of electronic technology, without reducing the quality of the collected information. The agency will summarize and/or include your comments in the request for OMB’s clearance of this information collection. Authority: The Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995; 44 U.S.C.

ACTION: Notice of decision by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration that nonconforming 1996 and 1997 Lamborghini Diablo Coupe and Roadster passenger cars are eligible for importation. AGENCY: SUMMARY: This notice announces the decision by NHTSA that 1996 and 1997 Lamborghini Diablo Coupe and Roadster passenger cars not originally manufactured to comply with all applicable Federal motor vehicle safety PO 00000 Frm 00079 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 64757 standards (FMVSS) are eligible for importation into the United States. 1997 Lamborghini Diablo Coupe passenger cars are eligible for importation because they have safety features that comply with, or are capable of being altered to comply with, all applicable FMVSS. 1996 Lamborghini Diablo Coupe and Roadster passenger cars, and 1997 Lamborghini Diablo Roadster passenger cars, are eligible for importation because they are substantially similar to vehicles originally manufactured for importation into and sale in the United States and certified by their manufacturer as complying with the safety standards (the U.S.-certified versions of the 1996 Lamborghini Diablo Coupe and Roadster and the 1997 Lamborghini Diablo Roadster), and are capable of being readily altered to conform to the standards. DATES: This decision was effective December 19, 2003. The agency notified the petitioner at that time that the subject vehicles are eligible for importation. This document provides public notice of the eligibility decision. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Coleman Sachs, Office of Vehicle Safety Compliance, NHTSA (202–366–3151). SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background Under 49 U.S.C. 30141(a)(1)(A), a motor vehicle that was not originally manufactured to conform to all applicable FMVSS shall be refused admission into the United States unless NHTSA has decided that the vehicle is substantially similar to a motor vehicle originally manufactured for importation into and sale in the United States, certified under 49 U.S.C. 30115, and of the same model year as the model of the motor vehicle to be compared, and is capable of being readily altered to conform to all applicable FMVSS. Where there is no substantially similar U.S.-certified motor vehicle, 49 U.S.C. 30141(a)(1)(B) permits a nonconforming motor vehicle to be admitted into the United States if its safety features comply with, or are capable of being altered to comply with, all applicable FMVSS based on destructive test data or such other evidence that NHTSA decides to be adequate. Petitions for eligibility decisions may be submitted by either manufacturers or importers who have registered with NHTSA pursuant to 49 CFR part 592. As specified in 49 CFR 593.7, NHTSA publishes notice in the Federal Register of each petition that it receives, and affords interested persons an opportunity to comment on the petition.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Hawaii State Department of 
Transportation (HI DOT) has previously conducted planning for Kahului 
Harbor, leading to a 2025 Master Plan and Environmental Assessment. 
However, demand for harbor facilities has been much greater than 
anticipated, and space for current operations is very tight. The 2025 
Master Plan called for development of new pier and harbor space at the 
west breakwater of the harbor. HI DOT has begun a new master planning 
process, which will lead to a new set of alternatives to meet current 
and future harbor needs. The west breakwater expansion and other steps 
to help assure that the harbor supports the continuing prosperity and 
quality of life of Maui County are under consideration.
    The EIS will address the following issues: (1) Demand for 
additional space and facilities at Kahului; (2) organization of harbor 
space and facilities to promote and preserve orderly cargo operations, 
passenger operations, and recreational activity; (3) environmental 
impacts of any proposed alternatives; and (4) additional issues that 
may emerge from the scoping process.
