Flora Industrial Park Site, Flora, Mississippi: This alternative would locate the NBAF in Flora Industrial Park in Flora, Mississippi. Although not included in the competitive selection process outlined above, the DHS-owned Plum Island Animal Disease Center (PIADC) will also be considered as a reasonable alternative. Plum Island Site, Plum Island Animal Disease Center, Plum Island, New York: This alternative would locate the new NBAF on the same federally owned property as the existing PIADC. Additionally, a No Action alternative will also be evaluated. Under the No Action Alternative, the NBAF would not be built and DHS would continue to use PIADC with necessary investments in facility upgrades, replacements, and repairs so that it could continue to operate at its current capability. Additional alternatives may be identified during the public scoping process. DHS invites comments and suggestions on alternatives that should be considered. A preferred location for the construction of the NBAF has not been identified at this time. DATES: The Public Meeting dates are: 1.

Preliminary Identification of Environmental Issues: The following issues have been tentatively identified for analysis in the EIS. DHS invites suggestions for the addition or deletion of items on this list: • Land-use plans, policies, and controls; • Visual resources; • Air quality; • Acoustic (noise) environment; • Geology and soil characteristics; • Water resources, including surface and groundwater, floodplains and wetlands, and water use and quality; • Plants and animals, and their habitats, including Federally-listed threatened or endangered species and their critical habitats, wetlands and floodplains; • Cultural resources, including historic and prehistoric resources and traditional cultural properties encompassing Native American or culturally important sites; • Human health and safety (involving both members of the public and laboratory workers); • Socioeconomic effects that may be related to the new construction and facility operations; • Public infrastructure, including utilities and local transportation; • Waste management practices and activities including the handling, collection, treatment, and disposal of research wastes; and • Compliance with all applicable federal, tribal, state, and local statutes and regulations and with international agreements, and required environmental permits, consultations and notifications. The list of issues discussed above for consideration in the NBAF EIS is preliminary and is intended to facilitate public comment. It is not intended to be all-inclusive, nor does it imply any predetermination or relative importance of potential impacts. During the process of preparing the EIS, DHS will evaluate the potential environmental and human health impacts of the alternatives, together with engineering and socioeconomic considerations. The NBAF EIS will present the results of this environmental impact evaluation process. DHS anticipates that certain classified or otherwise protected information will be consulted in the preparation of this EIS and used by decision-makers to decide where and how to relocate the NBAF. To the extent allowable, the EIS will summarize and present this information in a publicly releasable form. EIS Preparation and Public Participation Process: The process for PO 00000 Frm 00064 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 41765 preparing the NBAF EIS begins with the publication of this Notice of Intent in the Federal Register. After the close of the public scoping period, DHS will begin the environmental impact evaluation process. DHS expects to issue a draft NBAF EIS for public review in the spring of 2008. Public comments on the draft will be accepted during a comment period of at least 60 days following its publication. DHS will consider the public comments received on the draft EIS, perform further environmental impact evaluation if needed, and expects to publish a final NBAF EIS during fall 2008. No sooner than 30 days after publication of the Notice of Availability of the final NBAF EIS in the Federal Register, DHS will issue its Record of Decision and publish it in the Federal Register. In addition to the Federal Register, the Notices of Availability for the draft EIS, final EIS, and EIS Record of Decision will be provided through direct mail and other media.

AGENCY: SUMMARY: This notice contains the revised fee schedules for processing certain types of requests for changes to national Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) maps, for processing requests for Flood Insurance Study (FIS) technical and administrative support data, and for processing requests for particular NFIP map and insurance products. The changes in the fee schedules will allow the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to reduce further the expenses to the NFIP by recovering more fully the costs associated with processing conditional and final map change requests; retrieving, reproducing, and distributing technical and administrative support data related to FIS analyses and mapping; and producing, retrieving, and distributing particular NFIP map and insurance products. EFFECTIVE DATE: The revised fee schedules are effective for all requests dated October 1, 2007, or later. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: William Blanton Jr., CFM, Section Chief, Engineering Management Section, Risk Analysis Branch, 500 C Street, SW., Washington, DC 20472; by telephone at (202) 646–3151 or by facsimile at (202) 646–2787 (not toll-free calls); or by e-mail at william.blanton@dhs.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This notice contains the revised fee schedules for processing certain types of requests for changes to NFIP maps, requests for FIS technical and administrative support data, and requests for particular NFIP map and insurance products. Effective Dates. The revised fee schedule for map changes is effective for all requests dated October 1, 2007, or later. The revised fee schedule supersedes the current fee schedule, which was established on October 30, 2005. The revised fee schedule for requests for FIS backup data also is effective for all requests dated October 1, 2007, or later. The revised fee schedule supersedes the current fee schedule, PO 00000 Frm 00066 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 41767 which was established on October 30, 2005. The revised fee schedule for requests for particular NFIP map and insurance products, which are available through the FEMA Map Service Center (MSC) is effective for all written requests, on-line Internet requests made through the FEMA Flood Map Store, and all telephone requests received on or after October 1, 2007. The revised fee schedule supersedes the current fee schedule, which was established on October 30, 2005. Evaluations Performed. To develop the revised fee schedule for conditional and final map change requests, FEMA evaluated the actual costs of reviewing and processing requests for Conditional Letters of Map Amendment (CLOMAs), Conditional Letters of Map Revision Based on Fill (CLOMR–Fs), Conditional Letters of Map Revision (CLOMRs), Letters of Map Revision Based on Fill (LOMR–Fs), and Letters of Map Revision (LOMRs). To develop the revised fee schedule requests for FIS technical and administrative support data, FEMA evaluated the actual costs of reviewing, reproducing, and distributing archived data in seven categories. These categories are discussed in more detail below. To develop the revised fee schedule for requests for particular NFIP map and insurance products, FEMA: (1) Evaluated the actual costs incurred at the MSC for producing, retrieving, and distributing those products; (2) analyzed historical sales, cost data, and product unit cost for unusual trends or anomalies; and, (3) analyzed the effect of program changes, new products, technology investments, and other factors on future sales and product costs. The products covered by this notice are discussed in detail below. Periodic Evaluations of Fees. A primary component of the fees is the prevailing private-sector rates charged to FEMA for labor and materials. Because these rates and the actual review and processing costs may vary from year to year, FEMA will evaluate the fees periodically and publish revised fee schedules, when needed, as notices in the Federal Register. Fee Schedule for Requests for Conditional Letters of Map Amendment and Conditional and Final Letters of Map Revision Based on Fill Based on a review of actual cost data for Fiscal Year 2005 and Fiscal Year 2006, FEMA maintained the following review and processing fees, which are to be submitted with all requests: E:\FR\FM\31JYN1.SGM 31JYN1
