SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: NRCS has provided technical and financial assistance for planning and implementation of water resources projects to state and county sponsors in Hawaii and the Pacific Islands through the Watershed Protection and Flood Prevention Act, as amended, since 1964. Funding for the Manoa Watershed project was authorized in Section 726 of the 2006 Agricultural Appropriations Act. The funds have produced significant planning products for the Manoa Watershed, including community and public planning events, topographic mapping, hydrologic and hydraulic modeling, initial environmental and historic assessments, and formulation of measures to reduce flood damage. These planning products will be documented in technical reports to be completed by September 30, 2008, instead of a preliminary EIS. The technical reports will be utilized for the Manoa Subwatershed phase of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ Ala Wai Canal Watershed Project. A public meeting was conducted on July 22, 2008, to report on the termination of the Manoa Watershed project by NRCS, review the planning products, and discuss the transition of the Manoa Watershed into a phase of the Ala Wai Canal Project. (This activity is listed in the catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance under No. 10.904—Watershed Protection and Flood Prevention—and is subject to the provisions of Executive Order 12372 which requires intergovernmental consultation with State and local officials.)

(KMMC), operator of FTZ Subzone 15E, KMMC plant, Maryville, Missouri, to expand the scope of KMMC’s manufacturing authority to include new engine production capacity under FTZ procedures. The application was submitted pursuant to the provisions of the Foreign-Trade Zones Act, as amended (19 U.S.C. 81a–81u), and section 400.28(a)(2) of the Board’s regulations (15 CFR Part 400). It was formally filed on October 14, 2008. Subzone 15E (114 acres/1.13 million sq.ft./1,100 employees) was approved by the Board in 1989 with authority granted for the manufacture of internalcombustion engines and transmissions for motorcycles, personal water craft, and all-terrain vehicles (Board Order 454, 54 FR 50257, 12–5–89). In 1991, the Board authorized an expansion of the scope of manufacturing authority under FTZ procedures to include engines for lawn/garden equipment and for additional production capacity to 500,000 units annually (Board Order 1014, 64 FR 5765, 2–5–99). The Board subsequently approved an expansion of the scope of authority to include the manufacture of diesel engines (up to 150,000 annually) and parts of industrial robots (up to 900 units annually) in 2002 (Board Order 1239 67 FR 51535, 8–8–2002) . The applicant is now requesting authority to expand KMMC’s scope of authority to include additional engine production capacity. Under the current expansion plan, production capacity at the KMMC plant will increase to 1.1 million units per year within the existing designated subzone. KMMC’s manufacturing activity involves diecasting, machining, assembly, finishing, and quality control using domestic and foreign-origin materials and components. Foreign-sourced components and materials (about 8% of finished engine value) include: Tubes/ pipes/hoses of plastic and rubber, spark plugs, belts, electrical components, tube/pipe fittings, fuel pumps, housings, fasteners, gaskets, flywheels, chain, E:\FR\FM\22OCN1.SGM 22OCN1
