FEMA–B–1060 and FEMA–B–1062] Proposed Flood Elevation Determinations AGENCY: Federal Emergency Management Agency, DHS. ACTION: Proposed rule; correction. SUMMARY: FEMA is correcting a table for Black Hawk County, Iowa, and Incorporated Areas. Further, on July 8, 2009, FEMA published a proposed rule that properly addressed St. Charles County, Missouri, and Incorporated Areas, but incorrectly indicated that St. Charles County had not been included in any previously published proposed PO 00000 Frm 00030 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 57979 rule. FEMA seeks to correct and clarify that statement. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Kevin C. Long, Acting Chief, Engineering Management Branch, Mitigation Directorate, Federal Emergency Management Agency, 500 C Street, SW., Washington, DC 20472, (202) 646–2820 or (e-mail) kevin.long@dhs.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) proposes determinations of Base (1% annual-chance) Flood Elevations (BFEs) and modified BFEs for communities participating in the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), in accordance with section 110 of the Flood Disaster Protection Act of 1973, 42 U.S.C. 4104, and 44 CFR 67.4(a). These proposed BFEs and modified BFEs, together with the floodplain management criteria required by 44 CFR 60.3, are minimum requirements. They should not be construed to mean that the community must change any existing ordinances that are more stringent in their floodplain management requirements. The community may at any time enact stricter requirements of its own, or pursuant to policies established by other Federal, State, or regional entities. These proposed elevations are used to meet the floodplain management requirements of the NFIP and are also used to calculate the appropriate flood insurance premium rates for new buildings built after these elevations are made final, and for the contents in these buildings. Need for Corrections FEMA is correcting a table in a proposed rule which published on July 2, 2009, at 74 FR 31656, and correcting an incorrect statement made in the preamble to a proposed rule that published on July 8, 2009, at 74 FR 32480. On July 2, 2009, FEMA published a proposed rule that contained two errors: first, a table for Black Hawk County, Iowa, and Incorporated Areas contained incorrect information; and second, a table for St. Charles County, Missouri, and Incorporated Areas should not have been included in the rule and published in error. On July 8, 2009, at 74 FR 32480, FEMA published a separate proposed rule which properly addressed St. Charles County, Missouri, and Incorporated Areas. However, the July 8 rule incorrectly indicated that St. Charles County had not been included in any previous proposed rule. FEMA seeks to correct and clarify that statement. E:\FR\FM\10NOP1.SGM 10NOP1 57980 Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 216 / Tuesday, November 10, 2009 / Proposed Rules The July 2, 2009, proposed rule contained a table entitled ‘‘Black Hawk County, Iowa, and Incorporated Areas,’’ which contained errors. For flooding source ‘‘Dry Run Creek Diversion,’’ the table contained inaccurate information as to the location of referenced elevation, effective and modified elevation in feet, or communities affected. Also, for flooding source ‘‘Ponded Area No. 2, from Elk Run Creek, landside of levee,’’ the table contained a misspelling for Lafayette Road. FEMA is now publishing a revised table for Black Hawk County, Iowa, and Incorporated Areas, containing the accurate information, to address these prior errors. The information provided in the table below should be used in lieu of the table published on July 2, 2009. In addition, the July 2, 2009 proposed rule also contained a table entitled, ‘‘St. Charles County, Missouri, and Incorporated Areas.’’ The table was erroneously included in the July 2 rule, Flooding source(s) and should not have published at that time. Base flood elevations for St. Charles County properly published in a subsequent proposed rule on July 8, 2009, at 74 FR 32480; the proposed table in the July 8 rule effectively replaced the July 2 proposed table. The July 8 proposed rule addressed communities in the greater St. Louis, Missouri, area, that are the subject of an act of Congress that required FEMA to delay the statutory appeals process, required under Section 1363 of the National Flood Insurance Act of 1968, until certain publication requirements were met for each of these communities. (Consolidated Security, Disaster Assistance, and Continuing Appropriations Act 2009, Public Law 110–329, Div. B, Sec. 10503, 122 Stat. 3574, 3593 (2008)). The preamble of the July 8 proposed rule contained an incorrect statement which FEMA seeks to clarify here. The proposed rule stated that it was the first publication of proposed BFEs for the affected Missouri counties. This statement was inaccurate; as explained above, St. Charles County, Missouri, and Incorporated Areas had been inadvertently included in the July 2 rule. However, the inadvertent publication of the July 2 table for St. Charles County will not affect FEMA’s determination to run concurrent comment and appeal periods for all of the communities affected by the July 8 proposed rule. Therefore, counties should consider the July 2 tables for St. Charles County, Missouri, and Incorporated Areas withdrawn and replaced by the July 8 proposed tables. All comment periods and associated time deadlines shall be calculated using the dates and information published in the July 8 proposed rule. Correction In the proposed rule published July 2, 2009 (74 FR 31656), on page 31658, revise the table for Black Hawk County, Iowa, and Incorporated Areas to read as follows: * Elevation in feet (NGVD) + Elevation in feet (NAVD) # Depth in feet above ground ∧Elevation in meters (MSL) Location of referenced elevation** Effective Communities affected Modified Black Hawk County, Iowa, and Incorporated Areas Big Woods Creek ..................

ACTION: Notice of proposed rulemaking. SUMMARY: In this notice of proposed rulemaking, the Commission addresses the effect of line loss on universal service Local Switching Support (LSS) received by incumbent local exchange carriers (LECs) that are designated as eligible telecommunications carriers (ETCs). Pursuant to the LSS mechanism, an incumbent LEC ETC serving 50,000 or fewer lines in a study area may recover a portion of its switching costs from the universal service fund. Under the Commission’s rules, as an incumbent LEC ETC’s access lines increase above certain thresholds, the amount of LSS it may receive decreases, but its support does not increase if its number of access lines falls below the same thresholds. In this notice of proposed rulemaking, the Commission VerDate Nov<24>2008 16:37 Nov 09, 2009 Jkt 220001 tentatively concludes that the LSS rules should be modified to permit incumbent LEC ETCs that lose lines to increase their LSS, and we seek comment on these proposed rule changes.

Proposed Flood Elevation Determinations

AGENCY: Federal Emergency Management Agency, DHS.

ACTION: Proposed rule; correction.

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

SUMMARY: FEMA is correcting a table for Black Hawk County, Iowa, and 
Incorporated Areas. Further, on July 8, 2009, FEMA published a proposed 
rule that properly addressed St. Charles County, Missouri, and 
Incorporated Areas, but incorrectly indicated that St. Charles County 
had not been included in any previously published proposed rule. FEMA 
seeks to correct and clarify that statement.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Kevin C. Long, Acting Chief, 
Engineering Management Branch, Mitigation Directorate, Federal 
Emergency Management Agency, 500 C Street, SW., Washington, DC 20472, 
(202) 646-2820 or (e-mail) kevin.long@dhs.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Federal Emergency Management Agency 
(FEMA) proposes determinations of Base (1% annual-chance) Flood 
Elevations (BFEs) and modified BFEs for communities participating in 
the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), in accordance with section 
110 of the Flood Disaster Protection Act of 1973, 42 U.S.C. 4104, and 
44 CFR 67.4(a). These proposed BFEs and modified BFEs, together with 
the floodplain management criteria required by 44 CFR 60.3, are minimum 
requirements. They should not be construed to mean that the community 
must change any existing ordinances that are more stringent in their 
floodplain management requirements. The community may at any time enact 
stricter requirements of its own, or pursuant to policies established 
by other Federal, State, or regional entities. These proposed 
elevations are used to meet the floodplain management requirements of 
the NFIP and are also used to calculate the appropriate flood insurance 
premium rates for new buildings built after these elevations are made 
final, and for the contents in these buildings.

Need for Corrections

    FEMA is correcting a table in a proposed rule which published on 
July 2, 2009, at 74 FR 31656, and correcting an incorrect statement 
made in the preamble to a proposed rule that published on July 8, 2009, 
at 74 FR 32480. On July 2, 2009, FEMA published a proposed rule that 
contained two errors: first, a table for Black Hawk County, Iowa, and 
Incorporated Areas contained incorrect information; and second, a table 
for St. Charles County, Missouri, and Incorporated Areas should not 
have been included in the rule and published in error. On July 8, 2009, 
at 74 FR 32480, FEMA published a separate proposed rule which properly 
addressed St. Charles County, Missouri, and Incorporated Areas. 
However, the July 8 rule incorrectly indicated that St. Charles County 
had not been included in any previous proposed rule. FEMA seeks to 
correct and clarify that statement.

[[Page 57980]]

    The July 2, 2009, proposed rule contained a table entitled ``Black 
Hawk County, Iowa, and Incorporated Areas,'' which contained errors. 
For flooding source ``Dry Run Creek Diversion,'' the table contained 
inaccurate information as to the location of referenced elevation, 
effective and modified elevation in feet, or communities affected. 
Also, for flooding source ``Ponded Area No. 2, from Elk Run Creek, 
landside of levee,'' the table contained a misspelling for Lafayette 
Road. FEMA is now publishing a revised table for Black Hawk County, 
Iowa, and Incorporated Areas, containing the accurate information, to 
address these prior errors. The information provided in the table below 
should be used in lieu of the table published on July 2, 2009.
    In addition, the July 2, 2009 proposed rule also contained a table 
entitled, ``St. Charles County, Missouri, and Incorporated Areas.'' The 
table was erroneously included in the July 2 rule, and should not have 
published at that time. Base flood elevations for St. Charles County 
properly published in a subsequent proposed rule on July 8, 2009, at 74 
FR 32480; the proposed table in the July 8 rule effectively replaced 
the July 2 proposed table.
    The July 8 proposed rule addressed communities in the greater St. 
Louis, Missouri, area, that are the subject of an act of Congress that 
required FEMA to delay the statutory appeals process, required under 
Section 1363 of the National Flood Insurance Act of 1968, until certain 
publication requirements were met for each of these communities. 
(Consolidated Security, Disaster Assistance, and Continuing 
Appropriations Act 2009, Public Law 110-329, Div. B, Sec. 10503, 122 
Stat. 3574, 3593 (2008)). The preamble of the July 8 proposed rule 
contained an incorrect statement which FEMA seeks to clarify here. The 
proposed rule stated that it was the first publication of proposed BFEs 
for the affected Missouri counties. This statement was inaccurate; as 
explained above, St. Charles County, Missouri, and Incorporated Areas 
had been inadvertently included in the July 2 rule. However, the 
inadvertent publication of the July 2 table for St. Charles County will 
not affect FEMA's determination to run concurrent comment and appeal 
periods for all of the communities affected by the July 8 proposed 
rule. Therefore, counties should consider the July 2 tables for St. 
Charles County, Missouri, and Incorporated Areas withdrawn and replaced 
by the July 8 proposed tables. All comment periods and associated time 
deadlines shall be calculated using the dates and information published 
in the July 8 proposed rule.

Correction

    In the proposed rule published July 2, 2009 (74 FR 31656), on page 
31658, revise the table for Black Hawk County, Iowa, and Incorporated 
Areas to read as follows:
