Abstract: The Southwest Border Prosecutor Initiative was enacted in FY 2002 to reimburse state, county, parish, or municipal governments for the costs associated with the prosecution of criminal cases declined by local U.S. Attorneys. Each year, hundreds of criminal cases resulting from Federal arrests are referred to local prosecutors to handle when the cases fall below certain monetary, quantity, or severity thresholds. This places additional burdens on local government resources that are already stretched by the demands of prosecuting violations of local and state laws. This program provides funds to eligible jurisdictions in the four southwest border states, using a uniform payment-per-case basis for qualifying federally initiated and declined-referred criminal cases that were disposed of after October 1, 2001. Up to 220 eligible jurisdictions may apply. This includes county governments and the four state governments in Arizona, California, New Mexico, and Texas. (5) An estimate of the total number of respondents and the amount of time estimated for an average respondent to respond/reply: It is estimated that no more than 220 respondents will apply. Each application takes approximately 60 minutes to complete and is submitted 4 times per year (quarterly). (6) An estimate of the total public burden (in hours) associated with the collection: The total hour burden to complete the applications is 880 hours (880 applications (220 × 4 times a year) × 60 minutes = 52,800/60 minutes per hour = 880 burden hours).

ACTION: Notice of Intent to Prepare a Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS). SUMMARY: Pursuant to Section 102(2)(c) of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969, as implemented by the Council on Environmental Quality Regulations (40 Code of Federal Regulations [CFR] Parts 1500–1508), the Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP) intends to prepare a Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) and conduct Public Scoping Meetings for the proposed housing of inmates under Criminal Alien Requirement 9, at proposed facilities in Lake City, Florida and/or Baldwin, Michigan. The mission of the United States Department of Justice, BOP, is to protect society by confining offenders in the controlled environments of prison and communitybased facilities that are safe, humane, cost-efficient, and appropriately secure, and that provide work and other selfimprovement opportunities to assist offenders in becoming law-abiding citizens. The BOP accomplishes its mission through the appropriate use of community correction, detention, and correctional facilities that are either: federally-owned and operated; federally-owned and non-federally operated; and non-federally owned and operated. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Proposed Action The BOP is facing a period of unprecedented growth in its inmate population. Projections show the federal inmate population increasing from approximately 201,600 inmates at the end of fiscal year 2008 to 212,000 inmates by the end of fiscal year 2010. As such, the demand for bed space within the federal prison system continues to grow at a significant rate. To accommodate a portion of the growing inmate population, the BOP has determined that an additional federal, low-security facility is needed in its system. To meet this need, the BOP proposes to contract with a contractor owned and operated correctional facility E:\FR\FM\19JNN1.SGM 19JNN1
