Proposal to approve under OMB delegated authority the extension for three years, with revision, of the following reports: Report title: Application for Employment with the Board of VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:35 Dec 07, 2007 Jkt 214001 Governors of the Federal Reserve System Agency form numbers: FR 28, FR 28s, FR 28i OMB control number: 7100–0181 Frequency: On Occasion Reporters: Employment applicants Annual reporting hours: 3,558 hours Estimated average hours per response: FR 28: 1 hour; FR 28s: 1 minute; FR 28i: 5 minutes Number of respondents: FR 28: 3,500; FR 28s: 2,000; FR 28i: 300 General description of report: This information collection is required to obtain a benefit (sections 10(4) and 11(1) of the Federal Reserve Act (12 U.S.C. 244 and 248(1)). Information provided will be kept confidential under exemption (b)(6) of the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) to the extent that the disclosure of information ‘‘would constitute a clearly unwarranted invasion of personal privacy.’’ 5 U.S.C. § 552(b)(6). Abstract: The Application collects information to determine the qualifications and availability of applicants for employment with the Board. The Application collections information on education and training, employment record, military service record, and other information since the time the applicant left high school. Current Actions: The Federal Reserve proposes to revise the Application for Employment with the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (FR 28) by (1) deleting the social security number question, (2) expanding the country of citizenship question in the case of non–citizens, (3) adding several criminal background questions, (4) expanding the Notes section to provide more detail about an applicant’s rights and responsibilities, and (5) revising the confidentiality status for and treatment of certain information1 provided on the Application. Board staff also proposes to revise the FR 28i by (1) modifying the areas of interest, (2) adding a more detailed section on software packages used by the candidate, (3) adding a section for the candidate’s career objectives, and changing the rating scale format of the survey. 1 For example, the release of information such as an applicant’s date of birth, address, phone number, and personal information regarding any references provided would likely constitute a clearly unwarranted invasion of personal privacy, and would be kept confidential. However, the release of information such as the educational and professional qualifications of applicants would not likely constitute a clearly unwarranted invasion of personal privacy, and would not be kept confidential.

However, information gathered by the Federal Reserve during examinations of state member banks would be deemed exempt from Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) disclosure by exemption 8 of FOIA. 5 U.S.C. § 552(b)(8). Abstract: State member banks must adopt and maintain a written real estate lending policy. Also, banks must identify their loans in excess of the supervisory loan–to–value limits and report (at least quarterly) the aggregate amount of the loans to the bank’s board of directors.

ACTION: Notice of Availability. SUMMARY: This notice announces the availability, and opportunity for public review and comment, of a draft environmental assessment (EA), DOE/ EA–1592, that examines the impacts of a proposal by the General Services Administration (GSA), as the lead agency, and the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA), as a cooperating agency, to procure the construction of a new multistructure facility to house NNSA’s non-nuclear component procurement and manufacturing operations. DATES: The review period for the Draft EA and other NEPA documents ends Monday, January 14th. Comments postmarked after this date will be considered to the extent practicable. ADDRESSES: Further information, including an electronic copy of the draft EA and other supporting NEPA documents, may be found on the following Web site, http://www.gsa.gov/ kansascityplant. Comments, or requests for copies of the draft EA, should be sent to Carlos Salazar, General Services Administration, 1500 East Bannister Road, Room 2191 (6PTA), Kansas City, MO 64131. Comments may also be emailed to NNSA–KC@gsa.gov. Requests for copies of the draft EA may also be made by calling 816–823– 2305 or via e-mail to NNSA– KC@gsa.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The proposed action is for GSA to procure the construction of a new multistructure facility to house NNSA’s nonnuclear component procurement and manufacturing operations. GSA would issue a Solicitation for Offers to the real estate development community. The successful developer would purchase the property, and would partner with GSA and NNSA to design and construct a campus that meets NNSA’s needs. GSA would lease the campus on NNSA’s behalf, and NNSA would relocate its non-nuclear operations from the existing KCP at the Bannister Federal Complex in Kansas City, Missouri to the new facility and conduct future operations in the new facilities. The proposed new NNSA KCP would be a smaller production facility designed for flexibility to enable rapid reconfiguration to meet changing production requirements, reducing annual operating costs while improving the responsiveness, facility utilization and reliability of the supply of nonnuclear components to NNSA. In PO 00000 Frm 00049 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 addition to these business improvements, the new facility would enable a reduction in the environmental footprint associated with KCP operations including reduced air and water emissions and waste generation. The EA report examines and evaluates the environmental conditions on a portion of the Bannister Federal Complex located on Bannister Road in Kansas City, Missouri and for a site currently developed for agricultural usage on the northwest corner of Botts Road and Highway 150 in Kansas City, Missouri. The EA evaluates the baseline environmental conditions, environmental consequences, and cumulative impacts of several alternatives. The relocation would involve moving approximately two-thirds of the existing capital and process equipment to the new facility. The proposed facility would cover approximately 1 to 1.55 million rentable square feet and provide up to 2,900 surface parking spaces. The new campus would be constructed to pursue a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED), version 2.2, Gold certification, as defined by the United States Green Building Council. In addition, the campus would meet all executive orders on energy conservation. The existing KCP is collocated on the Bannister Federal Complex with GSA and shares both individual buildings and utilities. At this time it is anticipated that GSA would also relocate to new office space and vacate the Bannister Federal Complex on approximately the same time schedule as the Kansas City Plant. It is also anticipated that disposal of the DOEowned portion of the complex would be coordinated with the redeployment of the GSA-owned parcels, and may be managed as a single real property disposition action. Therefore, disposition and cleanup activities for the existing NNSA facility at the KCP are not part of the current proposed action and would be addressed in appropriate future environmental analyses. GSA and NNSA are also providing notice of wetland involvement for the proposed action. Based upon a preliminary jurisdictional waters determination, less than 1.5 acres of non-jurisdictional wetlands and potential jurisdictional tributaries and wetlands exist onsite. Mitigation of impacts to non-jurisdictional wetlands would take place in accordance with Executive Order 11990, and to jurisdictional waters in accordance with Section 404 Permitting, which requires avoidance of wetlands impacts, E:\FR\FM\10DEN1.SGM 10DEN1
