ACTION: Notice of availability. 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 the ROD for streamlining the environmental review of experimental permit applications for the launch and/or reentry of reusable suborbital rockets. The Federal action selected in the ROD is the FAA’s issuance of experimental permits for the launch and reentry of reusable suborbital rockets from both FAA-licensed and non-licensed launch sites using the Final Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement for Streamlining the Processing of Experimental Permit Applications (PEIS), to the maximum extent feasible, as the basis for determining the environmental consequences of issuing the permits. The ROD provides a description of the Proposed Action, which was FAA’s Preferred Alternative and the environmentally preferable alternative, and the No Action Alternative. It includes a discussion of environmental impacts associated with the Proposed Action for each resource area, as analyzed in the PEIS. The ROD does not propose site-specific mitigation measures. Rather, launch operators would be expected to implement sitespecific mitigation measures that are consistent with those currently employed by the eight launch facilities addressed in the PEIS. Additional sitespecific mitigation measures could be developed and presented in the sitespecific NEPA documents that would tier from the PEIS. The PEIS serves as the primary reference and basis for preparation of the ROD. The FAA prepared the PEIS with cooperation from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and the U.S. Air Force. The PEIS documents the analysis of the environmental consequences associated with the above referenced Proposed Action and No Action Alternative. PO 00000 Frm 00104 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 The FAA has posted the ROD and PEIS on the FAA Web site at: http:// www.faa.gov/about/office_org/ headquarters_offices/ast/ environmental/review/ documents_completed/. Based on the potential environmental impacts identified in the PEIS, applicable regulatory requirements, public and agency comments, and the FAA’s responsibilities to support the continued growth and expansion of the U.S. space transportation industry, the FAA has decided to implement the Proposed Action (Preferred Alternative) as presented in the PEIS.
