SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Notice of Appeal

    AES has filed a notice of appeal with the Secretary of Commerce 
pursuant to the Coastal Zone Management Act of 1972 (CZMA), 16 U.S.C. 
1451 et seq., and implementing regulations found at 15 CFR part 930, 
subpart H. AES appeals an objection, filed by the State of Maryland, to 
a consistency determination prepared by AES related to its proposed LNG 
terminal project in Baltimore County, Maryland.
    Under the CZMA, the Secretary may override the State's objection on 
grounds that the project is consistent with the objectives or purposes 
of the CZMA, or necessary in the interest of national security. To make 
the determination that the proposed activity is ``consistent with the 
objectives or purposes'' of the CZMA, the Secretary must find that: (1) 
The proposed activity furthers the national interest as articulated in 
sections 302 or 303 of the CZMA, in a significant or substantial 
manner; (2) the adverse effects of the proposed activity do not 
outweigh its contribution to the national interest, when those effects 
are considered separately or cumulatively; and (3) no reasonable 
alternative is available that would permit the activity to be conducted 
in a manner consistent with enforceable policies of the State's coastal 
management program. 15 CFR 930.121. To make the determination that the 
proposed activity is ``necessary in the interest of national 
security,'' the Secretary must find that a national defense or other 
national security interest would be significantly impaired were the 
proposed activity not permitted to go forward as proposed. 15 CFR 
930.122.
