ACTION: Final rule. mstockstill on PROD1PC66 with RULES AGENCY: SUMMARY: This rule identifies communities, where the sale of flood insurance has been authorized under the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), that are scheduled for suspension on the effective dates listed within this rule because of noncompliance with the floodplain management requirements of the program. If the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) receives documentation proving the community has adopted the required floodplain management measures prior to the effective suspension date given in this rule, the suspension will not occur and a notice will be provided by publication in the Federal Register on a subsequent date. DATES: Effective Date: The effective date of each community’s scheduled suspension is the third date (‘‘Susp.’’) listed in the third column of the following tables. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: If you want to determine whether a particular community was suspended on the suspension date or obtain additional information, contact David Stearrett, Federal Emergency Management Agency, Mitigation Directorate, 500 C Street, SW., Washington, DC 20472, (202) 646–2953. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The NFIP enables property owners to purchase flood insurance which is generally not otherwise available. In return, VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:59 Sep 16, 2008 Jkt 214001 communities agree to adopt and administer local floodplain management aimed at protecting lives and new construction from future flooding. Section 1315 of the National Flood Insurance Act of 1968, as amended, 42 U.S.C. 4022, prohibits flood insurance coverage as authorized under the NFIP, 42 U.S.C. 4001 et seq.; unless an appropriate public body adopts adequate floodplain management measures with effective enforcement measures. The communities listed in this document no longer meet the statutory requirement for compliance with program regulations, 44 CFR part 59. Accordingly, the communities will be suspended on the effective date in the third column. As of that date, flood insurance will no longer be available in the community. However, some of these communities may adopt and submit the required documentation of legally enforceable floodplain management measures after this rule is published but prior to the actual suspension date. These communities will not be suspended and will continue their eligibility for the sale of insurance. A notice withdrawing the suspension of the communities will be published in the Federal Register. Previously, FEMA identified the Special Flood Hazard Areas (SFHAs) in these communities by publishing a Flood Insurance Rate Map (FIRM). The date of the FIRM, if one has been published, is indicated in the fourth column of the table. No direct Federal financial assistance (except assistance pursuant to the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act not in connection with a flood) may legally be provided for construction or acquisition of buildings in identified SFHAs for communities not participating in the NFIP and identified for more than a year, on the FEMA initial flood insurance map of the community as having flood-prone areas (section 202(a) of the Flood Disaster Protection Act of 1973, 42 U.S.C. 4106(a), as amended). This prohibition against certain types of Federal assistance becomes effective for the communities listed on the date shown in the last column. The Administrator finds the notice and public comment under 5 U.S.C. 553(b) are impracticable and unnecessary because the communities listed in this final rule have been adequately notified. Each community receives 6-month, 90-day, and 30-day notification letters addressed to the Chief Executive Officer stating the community will be PO 00000 Frm 00063 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 53747 suspended unless the required floodplain management measures are met prior to the effective suspension date. Since these notifications were made, this final rule may take effect within less than 30 days. National Environmental Policy Act. This rule is categorically excluded from the requirements of 44 CFR Part 10, Environmental Considerations. No environmental impact assessment has been prepared. Regulatory Flexibility Act. The Administrator has determined this rule is exempt from the requirements of the Regulatory Flexibility Act because the National Flood Insurance Act of 1968, as amended, 42 U.S.C. 4022, prohibits flood insurance coverage unless an appropriate public body adopts adequate floodplain management measures with effective enforcement measures. The communities listed no longer comply with the statutory requirements, and after the effective date, flood insurance will no longer be available in the communities unless remedial action takes place. Regulatory Classification. This final rule is not a significant regulatory action under the criteria of section 3(f) of Executive Order 12866 of September 30, 1993, Regulatory Planning and Review, 58 FR 51735. Executive Order 13132, Federalism. This rule involves no policies that have federalism implications under Executive Order 13132. Executive Order 12988, Civil Justice Reform. This rule meets the applicable standards of Executive Order 12988. Paperwork Reduction Act.

DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY

Federal Emergency Management Agency

44 CFR Part 64

[Docket No. FEMA-8039]


Suspension of Community Eligibility

AGENCY: Federal Emergency Management Agency, Department of Homeland 
Security.

ACTION: Final rule.

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

SUMMARY: This rule identifies communities, where the sale of flood 
insurance has been authorized under the National Flood Insurance 
Program (NFIP), that are scheduled for suspension on the effective 
dates listed within this rule because of noncompliance with the 
floodplain management requirements of the program. If the Federal 
Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) receives documentation proving the 
community has adopted the required floodplain management measures prior 
to the effective suspension date given in this rule, the suspension 
will not occur and a notice will be provided by publication in the 
Federal Register on a subsequent date.

DATES: Effective Date: The effective date of each community's scheduled 
suspension is the third date (``Susp.'') listed in the third column of 
the following tables.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: If you want to determine whether a 
particular community was suspended on the suspension date or obtain 
additional information, contact David Stearrett, Federal Emergency 
Management Agency, Mitigation Directorate, 500 C Street, SW., 
Washington, DC 20472, (202) 646-2953.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The NFIP enables property owners to purchase 
flood insurance which is generally not otherwise available. In return, 
communities agree to adopt and administer local floodplain management 
aimed at protecting lives and new construction from future flooding. 
Section 1315 of the National Flood Insurance Act of 1968, as amended, 
42 U.S.C. 4022, prohibits flood insurance coverage as authorized under 
the NFIP, 42 U.S.C. 4001 et seq.; unless an appropriate public body 
adopts adequate floodplain management measures with effective 
enforcement measures. The communities listed in this document no longer 
meet the statutory requirement for compliance with program regulations, 
44 CFR part 59. Accordingly, the communities will be suspended on the 
effective date in the third column. As of that date, flood insurance 
will no longer be available in the community. However, some of these 
communities may adopt and submit the required documentation of legally 
enforceable floodplain management measures after this rule is published 
but prior to the actual suspension date. These communities will not be 
suspended and will continue their eligibility for the sale of 
insurance. A notice withdrawing the suspension of the communities will 
be published in the Federal Register.
    Previously, FEMA identified the Special Flood Hazard Areas (SFHAs) 
in these communities by publishing a Flood Insurance Rate Map (FIRM). 
The date of the FIRM, if one has been published, is indicated in the 
fourth column of the table. No direct Federal financial assistance 
(except assistance pursuant to the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief 
and Emergency Assistance Act not in connection with a flood) may 
legally be provided for construction or acquisition of buildings in 
identified SFHAs for communities not participating in the NFIP and 
identified for more than a year, on the FEMA initial flood insurance 
map of the community as having flood-prone areas (section 202(a) of the 
Flood Disaster Protection Act of 1973, 42 U.S.C. 4106(a), as amended). 
This prohibition against certain types of Federal assistance becomes 
effective for the communities listed on the date shown in the last 
column. The Administrator finds the notice and public comment under 5 
U.S.C. 553(b) are impracticable and unnecessary because the communities 
listed in this final rule have been adequately notified.
    Each community receives 6-month, 90-day, and 30-day notification 
letters addressed to the Chief Executive Officer stating the community 
will be suspended unless the required floodplain management measures 
are met prior to the effective suspension date. Since these 
notifications were made, this final rule may take effect within less 
than 30 days.
    National Environmental Policy Act. This rule is categorically 
excluded from the requirements of 44 CFR Part 10, Environmental 
Considerations. No environmental impact assessment has been prepared.
    Regulatory Flexibility Act. The Administrator has determined this 
rule is exempt from the requirements of the Regulatory Flexibility Act 
because the National Flood Insurance Act of 1968, as amended, 42 U.S.C. 
4022, prohibits flood insurance coverage unless an appropriate public 
body adopts adequate floodplain management measures with effective 
enforcement measures. The communities listed no longer comply with the 
statutory requirements, and after the effective date, flood insurance 
will no longer be available in the communities unless remedial action 
takes place.
    Regulatory Classification. This final rule is not a significant 
regulatory action under the criteria of section 3(f) of Executive Order 
12866 of September 30, 1993, Regulatory Planning and Review, 58 FR 
51735.
    Executive Order 13132, Federalism. This rule involves no policies 
that have federalism implications under Executive Order 13132.
    Executive Order 12988, Civil Justice Reform. This rule meets the 
applicable standards of Executive Order 12988.
    Paperwork Reduction Act. This rule does not involve any collection 
of information for purposes of the Paperwork Reduction Act, 44 U.S.C. 
3501 et seq.
