SUMMARY: The Commissioner of Social Security gives notice that on November 1, 2007, a supplementary agreement will enter into force which amends the Social Security agreement between the United States (U.S.) and Sweden that has been in effect since January 1, 1987. The supplementary agreement, which was signed on June 24, 2004, was concluded pursuant to section 233 of the Social Security Act. When the original agreement was concluded, Sweden had a two-tier Social Security system that consisted of an earnings-related, defined-benefit program and a residence-based, flat-rate benefit program. Recent Swedish legislation restructured the system. People born after 1953 are now covered by a program consisting of three components. The new Swedish system includes an earnings-related, definedcontribution benefit program administered by the government, a program of individual investment accounts, and a guaranteed minimum pension payable if income-based pensions and certain other income fall below specified levels. The primary purpose of the supplementary agreement is to conform the Swedish benefit provisions of the original agreement to Sweden’s new Social Security system. The supplementary agreement also changes the provision that authorizes SSA to take into account Swedish periods of coverage in determining eligibility for U.S. Totalization benefits so that it refers to periods under the new Swedish pension program rather than the old program. The new Swedish Social Security law allows people to qualify for most benefits with very little coverage credit. It is not expected, therefore, that many people will need to have their U.S. and Swedish coverage credits totalized to become eligible for most Swedish benefits. The supplementary agreement provides that U.S. Social Security benefits will not be counted in applying pension offsets that normally reduce the amount of Swedish disability benefits. Thus, the supplementary agreement will provide U.S. workers enhanced disability benefit protection under the Swedish system at little, if any, VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:58 Nov 01, 2007 Jkt 214001 additional cost to the U.S. Social Security system. In addition to the changes in the U.S. and Swedish benefit provisions, the supplementary agreement updates several other provisions to take account of amendments to both U.S. and Swedish laws and to conform the wording of the agreement to the more recent Totalization agreements concluded by the United States. Other changes in the agreement are merely clarifications to reflect the manner in which the agreement is currently applied.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The FHWA, in cooperation with the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT), will prepare a Tier One Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the Elgin O’Hare–West Bypass study. The study area for the EIS is generally bounded by I–90, I–294, and I–290. The Tier One EIS will complete a broad analysis of transportation system alternative(s) in the study area and evaluate the environmental impacts at a planning level of detail using a Geographic Information System (GIS). The primary environmental resources that may be affected are: Residential, commercial, and industrial properties; streams and floodplains; wetlands; and open space. This project is being developed using the Illinois Department of Transportation’s Context Sensitive Solutions policy. Alternatives to be evaluated will include (1) taking no action; (2) transit improvements; (3) improvements to local roads; (4) a complete system of improvements including limited access highways on existing and new location, transit, transportation system management strategies, and bicycle and pedestrian facilities. As part of the EIS process, a scoping meeting for obtaining input from Resource Agencies on level of detail and methodologies to be addressed in the Environmental Impact Statement will be held in December 2007. Additional coordination will occur with the Resource Agencies to identify a date and location for the scoping meeting. PO 00000 Frm 00090 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 62293 A Stakeholder Involvement Plan (SIP), which will meet the SAFETEA– LU Coordination Plan requirements, will be developed to ensure that a full range of issues related to this proposed project are identified and addressed. The SIP provides meaningful opportunities for all stakeholders to participate in defining transportation issues and solutions for the study area. A project Web site has been established (https://www.elginohare-westbypass.org) as one element of the project public involvement program. Comments or questions concerning this proposed action and the Tier One EIS are invited from all interested parties and should be directed to the FHWA at the address provided above. A public hearing will be held after the Tier One draft EIS is published and made available for public and agency review. Public notice will be given of the time and place of public meetings and hearings. The Tier One EIS will conclude with a Record of Decision selecting a preferred transportation system alternative(s). Following the Tier One EIS, projects with independent utility may be advanced to Tier Two NEPA documents that will focus on detailed environmental analyses.
