ACTION: Notice of Waiver of the Nonmanufacturer Rule for Irradiation Apparatus Manufacturing product number 6525. pwalker on PROD1PC71 with NOTICES AGENCY: SUMMARY: The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) is granting a waiver of the Nonmanufacturer Rule for Irradiation Apparatus Manufacturing (XRay Equipment and Supplies). The basis for waiver is that no small business manufacturers are supplying this class of product to the Federal government. The effect of a waiver would be to allow otherwise qualified regular dealers to supply the products of any domestic manufacturer on a Federal contract set aside for small businesses; service-disabled veteran-owned small businesses or SBA’s 8(a) Business Development Program. VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:33 Dec 21, 2007 Jkt 214001 This waiver is effective January 10, 2008. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Pamela M. McClam, Program Analyst, by telephone at (202) 205–7408; by FAX at (202) 481–4783; or by e-mail at Pamela.McClam@sba.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Section 8(a)(17) of the Small Business Act, (Act) 15 U.S.C. 637(a)(17), requires that recipients of Federal contracts set aside for small businesses, service-disabled veteran-owned small businesses, or SBA’s 8(a) Business Development Program provide the product of a small business manufacturer or processor, if the recipient is other than the actual manufacturer or processor of the product. This requirement is commonly referred to as the Nonmanufacturer Rule. The SBA regulations imposing this requirement are found at 13 CFR 121.406 (b). Section 8(a)(17)(b)(iv) of the Act authorizes SBA to waive the Nonmanufacturer Rule for any ‘‘class of products’’ for which there are no small business manufacturers or processors available to participate in the Federal market. As implemented in SBA’s regulations at 13 CFR 121.1202 (c), in order to be considered available to participate in the Federal market for a class of products, a small business manufacturer must have submitted a proposal for a contract solicitation or received a contract from the Federal government within the last 24 months. The SBA defines ‘‘class of products’’ based on six digit coding systems. The first coding system is the Office of Management and Budget North American Industry Classification System (NAICS). The second is the Product and Service Code required as a data entry field by the Federal Procurement Data System. The SBA received a request on September 21, 2007, to waive the Nonmanufacturer Rule for Irradiation Apparatus Manufacturing (X-Ray Equipment and Supplies). In response, on October 31, 2007, SBA published in the Federal Register a notice of intent to waive the Nonmanufacturer Rule for Irradiation Apparatus Manufacturing (X-Ray Equipment and Supplies). SBA explained in the notice that it was soliciting comments and sources of small business manufacturers of this class of products. In response to this notice, three (3) comments were received from interested parties. However, none of the interested parties are small business manufacturers of XRay Equipment and Supplies. SBA has determined that there are no small business manufacturers of this class of DATES: PO 00000 Frm 00076 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 73057 products, and is therefore granting the waiver of the Nonmanufacturer Rule for Irradiation Apparatus Manufacturing (XRay Equipment and Supplies) NAICS code 334517 and product number 6525.

ACTION: Notice of limitations on claims for judicial review of actions by FHWA and other Federal agencies. AGENCY: SUMMARY: This notice announces actions taken by FHWA that are final agency actions within the meaning of 23 U.S.C. 139 (I)(1). These final agency actions relate to a proposed highway project, U.S. 64 Improvements—Asheboro, Randolph County, North Carolina from just east of SR 1424 (Stutts Road) to U.S. 64 east of U.S. 64/Presnell Street, where the Record of Decision (ROD) identifies Alternative 29 as the selected alternative, as it is the Least Environmentally Damaging Practicable Alternative (LEDPA). The Abbreviated Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) was approved and published by FHWA in March, 2007 and a ROD was issued on December 6, 2007. FHWA selects Alternative 29 in the ROD based on public and resource agency input, including the North Carolina Department of Transportation. Selecting Alternative 29 is in the best overall public interest because it was identified as the LEDPA, it avoids controversial and serious neighborhood impacts of other alternative analyzed, has the fourth fewest number of stream crossings, affects the smallest area of wetlands, has the fourth lowest noise receiver impacts of the nine alternatives considered, is supported by local governments including the city of Asheboro, and is supported by many citizens. DATES: By this notice, the FHWA is advising the public of final agency actions subject to 23 U.S.C. 139 (I)(1). A claim seeking judicial review of the Federal agency actions on the highway project will be barred unless the claim is filed on or before June 23, 2008. If the Federal law that authorizes judicial review of a claim provides a time period of less than 180 days for filing such claim, then that shorter time period still applies.
