Broadwater appealed an objection by the New York State Department of State (New York) to Broadwater’s proposal to construct and operate a floating liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal and associated pipeline, which would be located in the New York waters of Long Island Sound. The Secretary published a Notice of Appeal in the Federal Register on July 7, 2008. Under the CZMA, the Secretary may override New York’s objection on the grounds that the project is consistent with the objectives or purposes of the CZMA or otherwise necessary in the interest of national security. To make the determination that the proposed activity is ‘‘consistent with the objectives or purposes of the CZMA,’’ the Secretary must find that: (1) The proposed activity furthers the national interest as articulated in sections 302 or 303 of the CZMA, in a significant or substantial manner; (2) the adverse effects of the proposed activity do not outweigh its contribution to the national interest, when those effects are considered separately or cumulatively; and (3) no reasonable alternative is available that would permit the activity to be conducted in a manner consistent with enforceable policies of the coastal management program. 15 CFR 930.121. The Secretary must close the decision record in a federal consistency appeal 160 days after the Notice of Appeal is published in the Federal Register. 15 CFR 930.130(a)(1).

    On June 6, 2008, Broadwater filed notice of an appeal with the 
Secretary of Commerce (Secretary) pursuant to Section 307 of the 
Coastal Zone Management Act of 1972 (CZMA), 16 U.S.C. 1456, and NOAA's 
implementing regulations found at 15 CFR Part 930, Subpart H. 
Broadwater appealed an objection by the New York State Department of 
State (New York) to Broadwater's proposal to construct and operate a 
floating liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal and associated pipeline, 
which would be located in the New York waters of Long Island Sound. The 
Secretary published a Notice of Appeal in the Federal Register on July 
7, 2008.
    Under the CZMA, the Secretary may override New York's objection on 
the grounds that the project is consistent with the objectives or 
purposes of the CZMA or otherwise necessary in the interest of national 
security. To make the determination that the proposed activity is 
``consistent with the objectives or purposes of the CZMA,'' the 
Secretary must find that: (1) The proposed activity furthers the 
national interest as articulated in sections 302 or 303 of the CZMA, in 
a significant or substantial manner; (2) the adverse effects of the 
proposed activity do not outweigh its contribution to the national 
interest, when those effects are considered separately or cumulatively; 
and (3) no reasonable alternative is available that would permit the 
activity to be conducted in a manner consistent with enforceable 
policies of the coastal management program. 15 CFR 930.121.
    The Secretary must close the decision record in a federal 
consistency appeal 160 days after the Notice of Appeal is published in

information in the consolidated record compiled by the lead Federal 
permitting agency. 15 CFR 930.130(a)(2), (3).
