ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: rwilkins on PROD1PC63 with RULES Expiration/revocation date SUMMARY: This rule identifies communities, where the sale of flood insurance has been authorized under the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), that are scheduled for suspension on the effective dates listed within this rule because of noncompliance with the floodplain management requirements of the program. If FEMA receives documentation that the community has adopted the required floodplain management measures prior to the effective suspension date given in this rule, the suspension will not occur and a notice of this will be provided by publication in the Federal Register on a subsequent date. EFFECTIVE DATES: The effective date of each community’s scheduled suspension is the third date (‘‘Susp.’’) listed in the third column of the following tables. ADDRESSES: If you want to determine whether a particular community was suspended on the suspension date, contact the appropriate FEMA Regional Office. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: David Stearrett, Mitigation Division, Federal Emergency Management Agency, 500 C Street, SW., Washington, DC 20472, (202) 646–2953. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The NFIP enables property owners to purchase flood insurance which is generally not otherwise available. In return, communities agree to adopt and administer local floodplain management aimed at protecting lives and new construction from future flooding. Section 1315 of the National Flood VerDate Aug<31>2005 18:30 Feb 06, 2007 Jkt 211001 Insurance Act of 1968, as amended, 42 U.S.C. 4022, prohibits flood insurance coverage as authorized under the NFIP, 42 U.S.C. 4001 et seq.; unless an appropriate public body adopts adequate floodplain management measures with effective enforcement measures. The communities listed in this document no longer meet that statutory requirement for compliance with program regulations, 44 CFR part 59 et seq. Accordingly, the communities will be suspended on the effective date in the third column. As of that date, flood insurance will no longer be available in the community. However, some of these communities may adopt and submit the required documentation of legally enforceable floodplain management measures after this rule is published but prior to the actual suspension date. These communities will not be suspended and will continue their eligibility for the sale of insurance. A notice withdrawing the suspension of the communities will be published in the Federal Register. In addition, FEMA has identified the Special Flood Hazard Areas (SFHAs) in these communities by publishing a Flood Insurance Rate Map (FIRM). The date of the FIRM, if one has been published, is indicated in the fourth column of the table. No direct Federal financial assistance (except assistance pursuant to the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act not in connection with a flood) may legally be provided for construction or acquisition of buildings in identified SFHAs for communities not participating in the NFIP and identified for more than a year, on FEMA’s initial flood insurance map of the community as having flood-prone areas (section 202(a) of the Flood Disaster Protection Act of 1973, 42 U.S.C. 4106(a), as amended). This prohibition against certain types of Federal assistance becomes effective for the communities listed on the date shown in the last column. The Administrator finds that notice and public comment under 5 U.S.C. 553(b) are impracticable and unnecessary because communities listed in this final rule have been adequately notified. Each community receives 6-month, 90-day, and 30-day notification letters addressed to the Chief Executive Officer stating that the community will be suspended unless the required floodplain management measures are PO 00000 Frm 00036 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 12/31/09 met prior to the effective suspension date. Since these notifications were made, this final rule may take effect within less than 30 days. National Environmental Policy Act. This rule is categorically excluded from the requirements of 44 CFR part 10, Environmental Considerations. No environmental impact assessment has been prepared. Regulatory Flexibility Act. The Administrator has determined that this rule is exempt from the requirements of the Regulatory Flexibility Act because the National Flood Insurance Act of 1968, as amended, 42 U.S.C. 4022, prohibits flood insurance coverage unless an appropriate public body adopts adequate floodplain management measures with effective enforcement measures. The communities listed no longer comply with the statutory requirements, and after the effective date, flood insurae will no longer be available in the communities unless remedial action takes place. Regulatory Classification. This final rule is not a significant regulatory action under the criteria of section 3(f) of Executive Order 12866 of September 30, 1993, Regulatory Planning and Review, 58 FR 51735.

ACTION: Final rule. rwilkins on PROD1PC63 with RULES AGENCY: SUMMARY: The Federal Communications Commission is modifying a section of the Commission’s rules that implement the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) Fee Schedule. This modification pertains to the charge for recovery of the full, allowable direct costs of searching for and reviewing records requested under the FOIA and the Commission’s rules, unless such fees are restricted or waived. The fees are being revised to correspond to modifications in the rate of pay approved by Congress. DATES: Effective February 7, 2007. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Shoko B. Hair, Freedom of Information Act Public Liaison, Office of Performance Evaluation and Records VerDate Aug<31>2005 18:30 Feb 06, 2007 Jkt 211001 The Federal Communications Commission is modifying § 0.467(a) of the Commission’s rules. This rule pertains to the charges for searching and reviewing records requested under the FOIA. The FOIA requires federal agencies to establish a schedule of fees for the processing of requests for agency records in accordance with fee guidelines issued by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB). In 1987, OMB issued its Uniform Freedom of Information Act Fee Schedule and Guidelines. However, because the FOIA requires that each agency’s fees be based upon its direct costs of providing FOIA services, OMB did not provide a unitary, government-wide schedule of fees. The Commission based its FOIA Fee Schedule on the grade level of the employee who processes the request. Thus, the Fee Schedule was computed at a Step 5 of each grade level based on the General Schedule effective January 1987 (including 20 percent for personnel benefits). The Commission’s rules provide that the Fee Schedule will be modified periodically to correspond with modifications in the rate of pay approved by Congress. See 47 CFR 0.467(a)(1) note. PO 00000 Frm 00037 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 In an Order adopted on January 25, 2007 and released on February 1, 2007 (DA 07–101), the Managing Director revised the schedule of fees set forth in 47 CFR 0.467 for the recovery of the full, allowable direct costs of searching for and reviewing agency records requested pursuant to the FOIA and the Commission’s rules, 47 CFR 0.460, 0.461. The revisions correspond to modifications in the rate of pay, which was approved by Congress. These modifications to the Fee Schedule do not require notice and comment because they merely update the Fee Schedule to correspond to modifications in rates of pay, as required under the current rules. The Commission will not distribute copies of this Order pursuant to the Congressional Review Act, see 5 U.S.C. 801(a)(1)(A), because the rules are a matter of agency organization, procedure, or practice that do not substantially affect the rights or obligations of non-agency parties. Accordingly, pursuant to the authority contained in § 0.231(b) of the Commission’s rules, 47 CFR 0.231(b), It is hereby ordered, that, effective on February 7, 2007, the Fee Schedule contained in § 0.467 of the Commission’s rules, 47 CFR § 0.467, is amended, as described herein.

44 CFR Part 64

[Docket No. FEMA-7961]


Suspension of Community Eligibility

AGENCY: Mitigation Division, Federal Emergency Management Agency, DHS.

ACTION: Final rule.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: This rule identifies communities, where the sale of flood 
insurance has been authorized under the National Flood Insurance 
Program (NFIP), that are scheduled for suspension on the effective 
dates listed within this rule because of noncompliance with the 
floodplain management requirements of the program. If FEMA receives 
documentation that the community has adopted the required floodplain 
management measures prior to the effective suspension date given in 
this rule, the suspension will not occur and a notice of this will be 
provided by publication in the Federal Register on a subsequent date.

EFFECTIVE DATES: The effective date of each community's scheduled 
suspension is the third date (``Susp.'') listed in the third column of 
the following tables.

ADDRESSES: If you want to determine whether a particular community was 
suspended on the suspension date, contact the appropriate FEMA Regional 
Office.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: David Stearrett, Mitigation Division, 
Federal Emergency Management Agency, 500 C Street, SW., Washington, DC 
20472, (202) 646-2953.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The NFIP enables property owners to purchase 
flood insurance which is generally not otherwise available. In return, 
communities agree to adopt and administer local floodplain management 
aimed at protecting lives and new construction from future flooding. 
Section 1315 of the National Flood Insurance Act of 1968, as amended, 
42 U.S.C. 4022, prohibits flood insurance coverage as authorized under 
the NFIP, 42 U.S.C. 4001 et seq.; unless an appropriate public body 
adopts adequate floodplain management measures with effective 
enforcement measures. The communities listed in this document no longer 
meet that statutory requirement for compliance with program 
regulations, 44 CFR part 59 et seq. Accordingly, the communities will 
be suspended on the effective date in the third column. As of that 
date, flood insurance will no longer be available in the community. 
However, some of these communities may adopt and submit the required 
documentation of legally enforceable floodplain management measures 
after this rule is published but prior to the actual suspension date. 
These communities will not be suspended and will continue their 
eligibility for the sale of insurance. A notice withdrawing the 
suspension of the communities will be published in the Federal 
Register.
    In addition, FEMA has identified the Special Flood Hazard Areas 
(SFHAs) in these communities by publishing a Flood Insurance Rate Map 
(FIRM). The date of the FIRM, if one has been published, is indicated 
in the fourth column of the table. No direct Federal financial 
assistance (except assistance pursuant to the Robert T. Stafford 
Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act not in connection with a 
flood) may legally be provided for construction or acquisition of 
buildings in identified SFHAs for communities not participating in the 
NFIP and identified for more than a year, on FEMA's initial flood 
insurance map of the community as having flood-prone areas (section 
202(a) of the Flood Disaster Protection Act of 1973, 42 U.S.C. 4106(a), 
as amended). This prohibition against certain types of Federal 
assistance becomes effective for the communities listed on the date 
shown in the last column. The Administrator finds that notice and 
public comment under 5 U.S.C. 553(b) are impracticable and unnecessary 
because communities listed in this final rule have been adequately 
notified.
    Each community receives 6-month, 90-day, and 30-day notification 
letters addressed to the Chief Executive Officer stating that the 
community will be suspended unless the required floodplain management 
measures are met prior to the effective suspension date. Since these 
notifications were made, this final rule may take effect within less 
than 30 days.
    National Environmental Policy Act. This rule is categorically 
excluded from the requirements of 44 CFR part 10, Environmental 
Considerations. No environmental impact assessment has been prepared.
    Regulatory Flexibility Act. The Administrator has determined that 
this rule is exempt from the requirements of the Regulatory Flexibility 
Act because the National Flood Insurance Act of 1968, as amended, 42 
U.S.C. 4022, prohibits flood insurance coverage unless an appropriate 
public body adopts adequate floodplain management measures with 
effective enforcement measures. The communities listed no longer comply 
with the statutory requirements, and after the effective date, flood 
insurae will no longer be available in the communities unless remedial 
action takes place.
    Regulatory Classification. This final rule is not a significant 
regulatory action under the criteria of section 3(f) of Executive Order 
12866 of September 30, 1993, Regulatory Planning and Review, 58 FR 
51735.
    Executive Order 13132, Federalism. This rule involves no policies 
that have federalism implications under Executive Order 13132.
    Executive Order 12988, Civil Justice Reform. This rule meets the 
applicable standards of Executive Order 12988.
    Paperwork Reduction Act. This rule does not involve any collection 
of information for purposes of the Paperwork Reduction Act, 44 U.S.C. 
3501 et seq.
