E8–25507 Filed 10–27–08; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 4910–13–M DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION Federal Aviation Administration Deadline for Notification of Intent To Use the Airport Improvement Program (AIP) Sponsor, Cargo, and Nonprimary Entitlement Funds for Fiscal Year 2009 Federal Aviation Administration, DOT. ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: SUMMARY: The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) announces February 2, 2009, as the deadline for each airport sponsor to notify the FAA whether or not it will use its fiscal year 2009 entitlement funds available under Public Law No. 110–330 to accomplish Airport Improvement Program (AIP)eligible projects that the sponsor previously identified through the Airports Capital Improvement Plan (ACIP) process during the preceding year. If a sponsor does not declare their intention regarding the use of fiscal year 2009 entitlement funds by February 2, 2009, FAA will be unable to take the necessary actions to designate these as ‘‘protected’’ carryover funds; these funds will not be carried over without a legislative enactment that provides an additional AIP authorization and an extension of the FAA’s spending authority from the Airport and Airway Trust Fund beyond March 31, 2009. PO 00000 Frm 00065 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Mr. Frank J. San Martin, Manager, Airports Financial Assistance Division, APP– 500, on (202) 267–3831. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title 49 of the United States Code, section 47105(f), provides that the sponsor of each airport to which funds are apportioned shall notify the Secretary by such time and in a form as prescribed by the Secretary, of the sponsor’s intent to apply for the funds apportioned to it (entitlements). This notice applies only to those airports that have had entitlement funds apportioned to them, except those nonprimary airports located in designated Block Grant States. Sponsors intending to apply for any of their available entitlement funds, including those unused from prior years, shall submit by February 2, 2009, a written indication to the designated Airports District Office (or Regional Office in regions without Airports District Offices) that they will advertise, bid, and submit an application prior to February 11, 2009, or by the date established by the designated Airport District or Regional Office. This notice is promulgated to expedite and prioritize the grant-making process. In the past when there has been full-year funding for AIP, the FAA has established a deadline of May 1 for an airport sponsor to declare that it will defer use of its entitlement funding. Considering that Congress has authorized the AIP program only until March 31, 2009, i.e. into the middle of a fiscal year, and uncertainty about additional statutory action before the end of the fiscal year, the FAA is establishing February 2, 2009, as the deadline for each airport sponsor to notify the FAA whether or not it will use its fiscal year 2009 entitlement funds. The AIP grant program is operating under the requirements of Public Law 110–329, the ‘‘Consolidated Security, Disaster Assistance, and Continuing Appropriations Act, 2009’’, which is a continuing resolution through March 6, 2009, and Public Law 110–330, the ‘‘Federal Aviation Administration Extension Act of 2008, Part II’’, enacted on September 30, 2008, which amends 49 U.S.C. 48103, to extend AIP for a sixmonth period beginning October 1, 2008 and ending on March 31, 2009. The FAA’s expenditure authority from the Airport and Airway Trust Fund will expire on March 31, 2009, in the absence of an additional statutory extension. Therefore, to avoid the risk of not being able to carryover funds should an additional extension not be enacted, FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: E:\FR\FM\28OCN1.SGM 28OCN1
