ACTION: Proposed rule. AGENCY: SUMMARY: Comments are requested on the proposed Base (1 percent annualchance) Flood Elevations (BFEs) and proposed BFE modifications for the communities listed in the table below. The purpose of this notice is to seek general information and comment regarding the proposed regulatory flood elevations for the reach described by the downstream and upstream locations in the table below. The BFEs and modified BFEs are a part of the floodplain management measures that the community is required either to adopt or show evidence of having in effect in order to qualify or remain qualified for participation in the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). In addition, these elevations, once finalized, will be used by insurance agents, and others to calculate appropriate flood insurance premium rates for new buildings and the contents in those buildings. DATES: Comments are to be submitted on or before May 22, 2008. ADDRESSES: The corresponding preliminary Flood Insurance Rate Map (FIRM) for the proposed BFEs for each community are available for inspection at the community’s map repository. The respective addresses are listed in the table below. You may submit comments, identified by Docket No. FEMA–B–7763, to William R. Blanton, Jr., Chief, Engineering Management Branch, Mitigation Directorate, Federal Emergency Management Agency, 500 C Street, SW., Washington, DC 20472, (202) 646–3151, or (e-mail) bill.blanton@dhs.gov. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: William R. Blanton, Jr., Chief, Engineering Management Branch, Mitigation Directorate, Federal Emergency Management Agency, 500 C Street, SW., Washington, DC 20472, (202) 646–3151 or.(e-mail) bill.blanton@dhs.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) proposes to make E:\FR\FM\22FEP1.SGM 22FEP1 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 36 / Friday, February 22, 2008 / Proposed Rules determinations of BFEs and modified BFEs for each community listed below, in accordance with section 110 of the Flood Disaster Protection Act of 1973, 42 U.S.C. 4104, and 44 CFR 67.4(a). These proposed BFEs and modified BFEs, together with the floodplain management criteria required by 44 CFR 60.3, are the minimum that are required. They should not be construed to mean that the community must change any existing ordinances that are more stringent in their floodplain management requirements. The community may at any time enact stricter requirements of its own, or pursuant to policies established by other Federal, State, or regional entities. These proposed elevations are used to meet the floodplain management requirements of the NFIP and are also used to calculate the appropriate flood insurance premium rates for new buildings built after these elevations are made final, and for the contents in these buildings. Comments on any aspect of the Flood Insurance Study and FIRM, other than the proposed BFEs, will be considered. Flooding source(s) A letter acknowledging receipt of any comments will not be sent. Administrative Procedure Act Statement. This matter is not a rulemaking governed by the Administrative Procedure Act (APA), 5 U.S.C. 553. FEMA publishes flood elevation determinations for notice and comment; however, they are governed by the Flood Disaster Protection Act of 1973, 42 U.S.C. 4105, and the National Flood Insurance Act of 1968, 42 U.S.C. 4001, et seq., and do not fall under the APA. National Environmental Policy Act. This proposed rule is categorically excluded from the requirements of 44 CFR part 10, Environmental Consideration. An environmental impact assessment has not been prepared. Regulatory Flexibility Act. As flood elevation determinations are not within the scope of the Regulatory Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C. 601–612, a regulatory flexibility analysis is not required. Executive Order 12866, Regulatory Planning and Review. This proposed rule is not a significant regulatory action under the criteria of section 3(f) of Executive Order 12866, as amended. Executive Order 13132, Federalism. This proposed rule involves no policies that have federalism implications under Executive Order 13132. Executive Order 12988, Civil Justice Reform. This proposed rule meets the applicable standards of Executive Order 12988. List of Subjects in 44 CFR Part 67 Administrative practice and procedure, Flood insurance, Reporting and recordkeeping requirements. Accordingly, 44 CFR part 67 is proposed to be amended as follows: PART 67—[AMENDED] 1. The authority citation for part 67 continues to read as follows: Authority: 42 U.S.C. 4001, et seq.; Reorganization Plan No. 3 of 1978, 3 CFR, 1978 Comp., p. 329; E.O. 12127, 44 FR 19367, 3 CFR, 1979 Comp., p. 376. § 67.4 [Amended] 2.

Proposed Flood Elevation Determinations

AGENCY: Federal Emergency Management Agency, DHS.

ACTION: Proposed rule.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: Comments are requested on the proposed Base (1 percent annual-
chance) Flood Elevations (BFEs) and proposed BFE modifications for the 
communities listed in the table below. The purpose of this notice is to 
seek general information and comment regarding the proposed regulatory 
flood elevations for the reach described by the downstream and upstream 
locations in the table below. The BFEs and modified BFEs are a part of 
the floodplain management measures that the community is required 
either to adopt or show evidence of having in effect in order to 
qualify or remain qualified for participation in the National Flood 
Insurance Program (NFIP). In addition, these elevations, once 
finalized, will be used by insurance agents, and others to calculate 
appropriate flood insurance premium rates for new buildings and the 
contents in those buildings.

DATES: Comments are to be submitted on or before May 22, 2008.

ADDRESSES: The corresponding preliminary Flood Insurance Rate Map 
(FIRM) for the proposed BFEs for each community are available for 
inspection at the community's map repository. The respective addresses 
are listed in the table below.
    You may submit comments, identified by Docket No. FEMA-B-7763, to

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Federal Emergency Management Agency 
(FEMA) proposes to make

[[Page 9741]]

determinations of BFEs and modified BFEs for each community listed 
below, in accordance with section 110 of the Flood Disaster Protection 
Act of 1973, 42 U.S.C. 4104, and 44 CFR 67.4(a).
    These proposed BFEs and modified BFEs, together with the floodplain 
management criteria required by 44 CFR 60.3, are the minimum that are 
required. They should not be construed to mean that the community must 
change any existing ordinances that are more stringent in their 
floodplain management requirements. The community may at any time enact 
stricter requirements of its own, or pursuant to policies established 
by other Federal, State, or regional entities. These proposed 
elevations are used to meet the floodplain management requirements of 
the NFIP and are also used to calculate the appropriate flood insurance 
premium rates for new buildings built after these elevations are made 
final, and for the contents in these buildings.
    Comments on any aspect of the Flood Insurance Study and FIRM, other 
than the proposed BFEs, will be considered. A letter acknowledging 
receipt of any comments will not be sent.
    Administrative Procedure Act Statement. This matter is not a 
rulemaking governed by the Administrative Procedure Act (APA), 5 U.S.C. 
553. FEMA publishes flood elevation determinations for notice and 
comment; however, they are governed by the Flood Disaster Protection 
Act of 1973, 42 U.S.C. 4105, and the National Flood Insurance Act of 
1968, 42 U.S.C. 4001, et seq., and do not fall under the APA.
    National Environmental Policy Act. This proposed rule is 
categorically excluded from the requirements of 44 CFR part 10, 
Environmental Consideration. An environmental impact assessment has not 
been prepared.
    Regulatory Flexibility Act. As flood elevation determinations are 
not within the scope of the Regulatory Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C. 601-
612, a regulatory flexibility analysis is not required.
    Executive Order 12866, Regulatory Planning and Review. This 
proposed rule is not a significant regulatory action under the criteria 
of section 3(f) of Executive Order 12866, as amended.
    Executive Order 13132, Federalism. This proposed rule involves no 
policies that have federalism implications under Executive Order 13132.
    Executive Order 12988, Civil Justice Reform. This proposed rule 
meets the applicable standards of Executive Order 12988.
