Jkt 217001 Office of Commercial Space Transportation; Notice of Availability and Request for Comment on the Draft Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement for Streamlining the Processing of Experimental Permit Applications AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), Department of Transportation. ACTION: Notice of availability and request for comment. SUMMARY: In accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, as amended (NEPA) (42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq.), Council on Environmental Quality NEPA implementing regulations (40 CFR parts 1500–1508), and FAA Order 1050.1E, Change 1, the FAA is announcing the availability of and requesting comments on the Draft Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement for Streamlining the Processing of Experimental Permit Applications (PEIS). The FAA Office of Commercial Space Transportation is the lead Federal agency for the development of the PEIS. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration and the U.S. PO 00000 Frm 00091 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 16439 Air Force are cooperating agencies. Under the Proposed Action evaluated in the PEIS, the FAA would issue experimental permits for the launch and reentry of reusable suborbital rockets from both FAA-licensed and nonlicensed launch sites using the PEIS as the basis for determining the potential environmental consequences of issuing experimental permits. Under the No Action Alternative, the FAA would continue issuing experimental permits for the launch and reentry of reusable suborbital rockets using its present method of analyzing environmental consequences case by case, without tiering from a programmatic document. The PEIS examines the potential environmental impacts of issuing an experimental permit for the operation of reusable suborbital rockets anywhere in the U.S. and abroad, and the potential site-specific impacts of permitted launches from seven FAA-licensed commercial launch sites: California Spaceport, California; Mojave Air and Space Port, California; Kodiak Launch Complex, Alaska; Mid-Atlantic Regional Spaceport, Virginia; Space Florida Launch Complex-46 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Florida; Oklahoma Spaceport, Oklahoma; Spaceport America, New Mexico; and one Federal range, the Shuttle Landing Facility at John F. Kennedy Space Center, Florida. Subsequent environmental analyses that fall under the scope of the PEIS could tier from this document and incorporate the findings of the PEIS by reference, allowing an applicant and the FAA to focus on the relevant and unique impacts of an experimental permit application. Tiering and incorporation by reference would streamline the development of subsequent environmental analyses in accordance with NEPA and FAA Order 1050.1E. The PEIS will not authorize the launch or reentry of reusable suborbital rockets from launch sites. Individual launch operators would be required to coordinate with site operators to gain access to a site. In addition, the launch operators would be required to apply to the FAA for an experimental permit, which would require an individual safety and environmental review. DATES: The public comment period for the NEPA process begins with the publication of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Notice of Availability of the Draft PEIS in the Federal Register. To ensure that all comments can be addressed in the Final PEIS, the FAA must receive comments no later than May 25, 2009. E:\FR\FM\10APN1.SGM 10APN1
