Download as PDF jlentini on DSKJ8SOYB1PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 192 / Tuesday, October 6, 2009 / Notices uses around the airport and preventing the introduction of additional noncompatible land uses; c. Program measures would not create an undue burden on interstate or foreign commerce, unjustly discriminate against types or classes of aeronautical uses, violate the terms of airport grants agreements, or intrude into areas preempted by the Federal Government; and d. Program measures relating to the use of flight procedures can be implemented within the period covered by the program without derogating safety, adversely affecting the efficient use of navigable airspace and air traffic control systems, or adversely affecting other powers and responsibilities of the Administrator prescribed by law. The submitted program included eleven proposed actions for noise mitigation on and off the airport, as applicable. The FAA completed its review and determined that the procedural and substantive requirements of the Act and FAR Part 150 have been satisfied. On September 16, 2009, the FAA approved the General Wayne A. Downing Peoria International Airport noise compatibility program. All eleven of the recommendations of the program were approved. Specific limitations with respect to FAA’s approval of an airport noise compatibility program are delineated in FAR Part 150, section 150.5. Approval is not a determination concerning the acceptability of land uses under Federal, State, or local law. Approval does not by itself constitute an FAA implementing action. A request for Federal action or approval to implement specific noise compatibility measures may be required, and an FAA decision on the request may require an environmental assessment of the proposed action. Approval does not constitute a commitment by the FAA to financially assist in the implementation of the program nor a determination that all measures covered by the program are eligible for grant-in-aid funding from the FAA. Where Federal funding is sought, requests for project grants must be submitted to the FAA Chicago Airports District Office. These determinations are set forth in detail in a Record of Approval signed by Deb Roth on September 16, 2009. The Record of Approval, as well as other evaluation materials and the documents comprising the submittal, are available for review at the FAA office listed above and at the administrative offices of the General Wayne A. Downing Peoria International Airport. VerDate Nov<24>2008 16:15 Oct 05, 2009 Jkt 220001 DATES: Effective Date: The effective date of the FAAs approval of the General Wayne A. Downing Peoria International Airport noise compatibility program is September 16, 2009.

PO 00000 Frm 00111 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 51363 Background The FHWA’s Buy America policy in 23 CFR 635.410 requires a domestic manufacturing process for any steel or iron products (including protective coatings) that are permanently incorporated in a Federal-aid construction project. The regulation also provides for a waiver of the Buy America requirements when the application of such requirements would be inconsistent with the public interest or when satisfactory quality domestic steel and iron products are not sufficiently available. This notice provides information regarding the FHWA’s finding that a Buy America waiver is appropriate for the acquisition of Mobile Harbor Cranes at the General Cargo Facility in Ohio. While funded by funds made available to the FHWA and subject to the Buy America requirements under 23 U.S.C. 313 and 23 CFR 635.410, the project is being administered by the Maritime Administration. The FHWA has coordinated this Buy America waiver for administrative convenience. In accordance with the Division I, section 126 of the ‘‘Omnibus Appropriations Act, 2009’’ (Pub. L. 111– 8), the FHWA published a notice of intent to issue a waiver on the Mobile Harbor Cranes (https:// www.fhwa.dot.gov/construction/ contracts/waivers.cfm?id=38) on August 25, 2009. The FHWA received no comments in response to this notice which suggested that the Mobile Harbor Cranes may not be available domestically. During the 15-day comment period, the FHWA conducted additional nationwide review to locate potential domestic manufacturers for the Mobile Harbor Cranes. Based on all the information available to the agency, the FHWA concludes that there are no domestic manufacturers for the Mobile Harbor Cranes. Thus, the FHWA concludes that a Buy America waiver is appropriate as provided by 23 CFR 635.410(c)(1). In accordance with the provisions of section 117 of the SAFETEA–LU Technical Corrections Act of 2008 (Pub. L. 110–244, 122 Stat. 1572), the FHWA is providing this notice as its finding that a waiver of Buy America requirements is appropriate. The FHWA invites public comment on this finding for an additional 15 days following the effective date of the finding.
