On September 25, 2009, the Secretary announced the establishment of the inquota quantity of the FY 2010 refined sugar TRQ at 90,039 MTRV for which the sucrose content, by weight in the dry state, must have a polarimeter reading of 99.5 degrees or more. This amount includes the minimum level to which the United States is committed under the WTO Uruguay Round Agreements (22,000 MTRV of which 1,656 MTRV is reserved for specialty sugar) and an additional 68,039 MTRV for specialty sugars. USTR is allocating a total of 10,300 MTRV of refined sugar to Canada, 2,954 MTRV of refined sugar to Mexico, and 7,090 MTRV of refined sugar to be administered on a first-come, first-served basis. Imports of all specialty sugar will be administered on a first-come, firstserved basis in five tranches. The Secretary has announced that the total in-quota quantity of specialty sugar will be the 1,656 MTRV included in the WTO minimum plus an additional 68,039 MTRV. The first tranche of 1,656 MTRV will open October 20, 2009. All types of specialty sugars are eligible for entry under this tranche. The second tranche of 25,000 MTRV will open on November 10, 2009.

ACTION: Notice. SUMMARY: The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) announces its findings on the noise compatibility program (NCP) submitted by the Metropolitan Airport Authority of Peoria for General Wayne A. Downing Peoria International Airport under the provisions of 49 U.S.C. 47501 et seq. (the Aviation Safety and Noise Abatement Act, herein referred to as ‘‘the Act’’) and 14 CFR part 150. These findings are made in recognition of the description of Federal and nonfederal responsibilities in Senate Report No. 96–52 (1980). The General Wayne A. Downing Peoria International Airport noise exposure maps were determined by FAA to be in compliance with applicable requirements on June 26, 2009. Notice of this determination was published in the Federal Register on July 2, 2009, 74 FR 31791. Under section 47504 of the Act, an airport operator who has previously submitted a noise exposure map may submit to the FAA a noise compatibility program which sets forth the measures taken or proposed by the airport operator for the reduction of existing non-compatible land uses and prevention of additional non-compatible land uses within the area covered by the noise exposure maps. The Act requires such programs to be developed in consultation with interested and effected parties including local communities, government agencies, airport users, and FAA personnel. Each airport noise compatibility program developed in accordance with Federal Aviation Regulations (FAR) Part 150 is a local program. The FAA does not substitute its judgment for that of the airport proprietor with respect to which measures should be recommended for action. The FAA’s approval or disapproval of FAR Part 150 program recommendations is measured according to the standards expressed in Part 150 and the Act and is limited to the following determinations: a. The noise compatibility program was developed in accordance with the provisions and procedures of FAR Part 150; b. Program measures are reasonably consistent with achieving the goals of reducing existing non-compatible land E:\FR\FM\06OCN1.SGM 06OCN1 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.

ACTION: Notice. SUMMARY: This notice provides information regarding the FHWA’s finding that a Buy America waiver is appropriate for the purchase of foreign Mobile Harbor Cranes in the Federalaid/American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 project for the Toledo Port Authority General Cargo Facility. DATES: The effective date of the waiver is October 6, 2009. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: For questions about this notice, please contact Mr. Gerald Yakowenko, FHWA Office of Program Administration, (202) 366–1562, or via e-mail at gerald.yakowenko@dot.gov.

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 (http:// 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. Comments may be submitted to the FHWA’s Web site via the link provided to the Ohio waiver page noted above. Authority: 23 U.S.C. 313; Public Law 110– 161, 23 CFR 635.410. E:\FR\FM\06OCN1.SGM 06OCN1

Notice of Approval of Noise Compatibility Program

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration, DOT.

ACTION: Notice.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) announces its 
findings on the noise compatibility program (NCP) submitted by the 
Metropolitan Airport Authority of Peoria for General Wayne A. Downing 
Peoria International Airport under the provisions of 49 U.S.C. 47501 et 
seq. (the Aviation Safety and Noise Abatement Act, herein referred to 
as ``the Act'') and 14 CFR part 150. These findings are made in 
recognition of the description of Federal and nonfederal 
responsibilities in Senate Report No. 96-52 (1980). The General Wayne 
A. Downing Peoria International Airport noise exposure maps were 
determined by FAA to be in compliance with applicable requirements on 
June 26, 2009. Notice of this determination was published in the 
Federal Register on July 2, 2009, 74 FR 31791.
    Under section 47504 of the Act, an airport operator who has 
previously submitted a noise exposure map may submit to the FAA a noise 
compatibility program which sets forth the measures taken or proposed 
by the airport operator for the reduction of existing non-compatible 
land uses and prevention of additional non-compatible land uses within 
the area covered by the noise exposure maps. The Act requires such 
programs to be developed in consultation with interested and effected 
parties including local communities, government agencies, airport 
users, and FAA personnel.
    Each airport noise compatibility program developed in accordance 
with Federal Aviation Regulations (FAR) Part 150 is a local program. 
The FAA does not substitute its judgment for that of the airport 
proprietor with respect to which measures should be recommended for 
action. The FAA's approval or disapproval of FAR Part 150 program 
recommendations is measured according to the standards expressed in 
Part 150 and the Act and is limited to the following determinations:
    a. The noise compatibility program was developed in accordance with 
the provisions and procedures of FAR Part 150;
    b. Program measures are reasonably consistent with achieving the 
goals of reducing existing non-compatible land

[[Page 51363]]

uses around the airport and preventing the introduction of additional 
non-compatible 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.

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.
