(Rotair) mstockstill on PROD1PC66 with NOTICES ACTION: Notice. SUMMARY: Notice is hereby given that the Department of State has terminated the statutory debarment against Rotair pursuant to section 38(g)(4) of the Arms Export Control Act (AECA) (22 U.S.C. 2778(g)(4)). DATES: Effective Date: December 7, 2007. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: David C. Trimble, Director Office of Defense Trade Controls Compliance, 10 17 CFR 200.30–3(a)(12). VerDate Aug<31>2005 21:40 Dec 18, 2007 Jkt 214001 Directorate of Defense Trade Controls, Bureau of Political-Military Affairs, Department of State (202) 663–2807. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Section 38(g)(4) of the AECA (22 U.S.C. 2778) prohibits the issuance of export licenses to a person, if that person or any party to the export has been convicted of violating section 38 of the AECA and certain other U.S. criminal statutes enumerated at section 38(g)(1)(A) of the AECA. A person convicted of violating the AECA is also subject to statutory debarment under section 127.7 of the ITAR. In July 2004, Rotair was convicted of violating the AECA and the ITAR (U.S. District Court, District of Connecticut, 3:04CR 149–JBA). Based on this conviction, Rotair was statutorily debarred pursuant to section 127.7 of the ITAR and, thus, prohibited from participating directly or indirectly in exports of defense articles and defense services. Notice of debarment was published in the Federal Register (70 FR 57349, September 30, 2005). In accordance with section 38(g)(4) of the AECA, statutory debarment may be terminated after consultation with the other appropriate U.S. agencies and after a thorough review of the circumstances surrounding the conviction and a finding that appropriate steps have been taken to mitigate any law enforcement concerns. The Department of State, after consultation with other agencies, has determined that Rotair has taken appropriate steps to address the causes of the violations and to mitigate any law enforcement concerns. Therefore, the debarment against Rotair is rescinded, effective December 7, 2007. The effect of this action is that Rotair may participate without prejudice in the export of defense articles and defense services subject to Section 38 of the AECA and the ITAR.

A location study will run concurrently with the preparation of the EIS and will provide definitive alternatives for evaluation in the EIS. The EIS will fully analyze the issues, problems, and potential social and environmental impacts associated with improving or realigning Route MM. The goals of the proposed action are to increase capacity, reduce congestion, and improve safety. The proposed project is located between Route 21 on the east and Route 30 on the west, entirely within Jefferson County. The project is approximately 4.3 miles in length. Alternatives under consideration include (1) no build; (2) improvements to the existing alignment; (3) new alignments; (4) safety improvements; and (5) transportation management options. To date, preliminary information has been issued to local officials and other interested parties. As part of the scoping process, an interagency coordination meeting will be held with federal and state resource agencies. In addition, informational meetings with the public and community representatives will be held to solicit input on the project and a reasonable range of alternatives. A location public hearing will be held to present the findings of the draft EIS (DEIS). Public notice will be given announcing the time and place of all public meetings and the hearing. The DEIS will be available for public and agency review and comment prior to the public hearing. To ensure that the full range of issues related to this proposed action are addressed and all significant issues are identified, comments and suggestions are invited from all interested parties. Comments and questions concerning this proposed action and the EIS should be directed to the FHWA or MoDOT at the addresses provided above. Concerns in the study area include potential impacts to natural resources, cultural resources, neighborhoods, and the community of House Springs, located at the western end of the study area. Improvements to the existing alignment could impact cultural resources, adjacent residences, and the House Springs business district. Realignment of Route MM could impact a large undeveloped, wooded area with significant topographic relief, SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: DEPARTMENT OF STATE E:\FR\FM\19DEN1.SGM 19DEN1
