For additional information concerning the Paperwork Reduction Act information collection requirements contained in this document, send an e-mail to PRA@fcc.gov or contact Jerry Cowden at (202) 418–0447. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On November 20, 2007, the Commission released a Report and Order (Location Accuracy Order) requiring wireless licensees subject to section 20.18(h) of the Commission’s rules, which specifies the standards for wireless Enhanced 911 (E911) Phase II location accuracy and reliability, to satisfy these standards at a geographical level defined by the coverage area of a Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP). On March 25, 2008, the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit (Court) stayed the Location Accuracy Order. On July 14, 2008, APCO and the National Emergency Number Association (NENA) filed an ex parte letter addressing handset-based and network-based location accuracy criteria, stating that they ‘‘are now willing to accept compliance measurements at the county level’’ rather than at the PSAP level, and that ‘‘[p]ublic safety and wireless carriers are in current discussions on a number of other issues associated with E9–1–1.’’ On July 31, 2008, the Commission filed with the Court a Motion for Voluntary Remand and Vacatur, which requested remand based on the proposals contained in the July 14 ex parte letter and ‘‘[i]n light of the public safety community’s support for revised rules.’’ Following this filing with the Court, NENA, APCO, Verizon Wireless, Sprint Nextel Corporation, and AT&T submitted written ex parte letters with the Commission with proposed new wireless E911 rules. Taken together, these proposals reflect agreement among those parties for new E911 accuracy requirements for both handset-based and network-based technologies, in order to achieve E911 accuracy compliance at the county-level. The parties also offer plans to convene industry groups to address related E911 issues, and AT&T included a proposal reflecting agreement on carrier provision of confidence and uncertainty data to PSAPs. Copies of all relevant ex parte submissions are included in the Attachment to this document. We therefore seek comment on the proposed changed accuracy requirements, including the benchmarks, limitations, and exclusions noted therein, for handset-based and PO 00000 Frm 00018 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 55473 network-based location technologies. We also invite views on the pledges to convene industry groups to explore related issues, and whether we should require the provision of confidence and uncertainty data. In sum, by this Public Notice, the Public Safety and Homeland Security Bureau seeks comment on all of these proposals as well as any alternative modifications to location accuracy requirements. The Bureau urges all interested parties to review the entirety of the above-referenced ex parte letters. We also seek comment on the attached Initial Regulatory Flexibility Analysis in connection with the proposals described. This action is taken under delegated authority pursuant to Sections 0.191 and 0.392 of the Commission’s rules, 47 CFR 0.191, 0.392. This abbreviated comment cycle is appropriate given the compelling public interest in achieving accurate and reliable E911 location information. Comments may be filed using the Commission’s Electronic Comment Filing System (ECFS) or by filing paper copies. Comments filed through the ECFS can be sent as an electronic file via the Internet to http://www.fcc.gov/ cgb/ecfs/. Generally, only one copy of an electronic submission must be filed. If multiple docket or rulemaking numbers appear in the caption of the proceeding, commenters must transmit one electronic copy of the comments to each docket or rulemaking number referenced in the caption. In completing the transmittal screen, commenters should include their full name, U.S. Postal Service mailing address, and the applicable docket or rulemaking numbers. All filings concerning this Public Notice should refer to PS Docket No. 07–114. Parties may also submit an electronic comment by Internet e-mail. To get filing instructions for e-mail comments, commenters should send an e-mail to ecfs@fcc.gov, and should include the following words in the body of the message, ‘‘get form.’’ A sample form and directions will be sent in reply. Parties who choose to file by paper must file an original and four copies of each filing. If more than one docket or rulemaking number appears in the caption of this proceeding, commenters must submit two additional copies for each additional docket or rulemaking number. Paper filings can be sent by hand or messenger delivery, by commercial overnight courier, or by first-class or overnight U.S. Postal Service mail (although we continue to experience delays in receiving U.S. Postal Service mail). Parties are strongly encouraged to E:\FR\FM\25SEP1.SGM 25SEP1

44 CFR Part 67

[Docket No. FEMA-B-1007]


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 December 24, 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-1007, to 
William R. Blanton, Jr., Chief, Engineering Management Branch, 
Mitigation Directorate, Federal Emergency Management Agency, 500 C

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 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.
