Notice of availability. AGENCY: ACTION: SUMMARY: The Department of the Army announces the availability of an FEIS that analyzes environmental and VerDate Nov<24>2008 15:06 Dec 30, 2009 Jkt 220001 socioeconomic impacts resulting from expanding testing and training capabilities at WSMR. The FEIS analyzes the impacts of land use changes that provide for expanded offroad maneuver and facilities to support new testing and training requirements associated with increased Brigade Combat Team (BCT) modernization (formerly known as Future Combat Systems) testing (preferred alternative) and the stationing of a Heavy Brigade Combat Team (HBCT) (or comparable unit) of approximately 3,800 Soldiers. On June 2, 2009, the Secretary of the Army announced a decision not to station an HBCT at WSMR in 2013; however, it was decided to retain the analysis in this FEIS to support implementation of potential future stationing decisions. DATES: The waiting period will end 30 days after publication of a notice of availability for the FEIS in the Federal Register by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. ADDRESSES: For specific questions regarding the FEIS, please contact: White Sands Test Center, Operations Office, Attention: Catherine Giblin, 124 Crozier Street, Building 124, Room B–15, White Sands Missile Range, NM 88002. Written questions may be mailed to the above address, faxed to (575) 678– 4082, or e-mailed to: WSMREIS@conus.army.mil. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mr. Monte Marlin, Public Affairs Office, Building 1782, Headquarters Avenue, White Sands Missile Range, NM 88002; (575) 678–1134; or e-mail monte.marlin@us.army.mil. The proposed action (Alternative 1) would result in a flexible, capabilities-based land use and airspace plan able to accommodate rapidly evolving customer needs, support current and future mission activities, and support a full range of test and training efforts from individual components up through major joint and multi-national programs. The FEIS analyzes the environmental impacts associated with the testing, training, and stationing activities under the proposed plan. Testing typically involves activities such as missile flight tests, aerial intercepts, air-delivered munitions tests against ground targets, directed energy and various weapons systems tests. Training involves military personnel using the land for maneuver, as well as for field evaluation of weapons, equipment, communication systems, or other objectives. Testing, training and stationing require additional SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: PO 00000 Frm 00010 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 69333 infrastructure such as barracks, motor pools, and administrative buildings. The development and implementation of a land use and airspace plan is intended to integrate and realize more fully the capabilities of the WSMR primary mission (research, development, testing, and evaluation (RDTE)) with new training capabilities and potential future Army stationing decisions. Establishing new test and training capabilities requires changing land use designations within the current installation boundaries. These changes would support current and future requirements and allow off-road vehicle maneuver on designated portions of the installation. WSMR will maintain its current RDTE mission and continue to support testing objectives of all military services and federal agencies. In addition to consideration of Alternative 1 and a No Action Alternative (current test capabilities and land use designations with current levels of operations and activities), one additional alternative was analyzed. Alternative 2 includes those activities described in Alternative 1 plus potential future stationing of an HBCT (or comparable unit) by expanding the cantonment area and construction of supporting infrastructure and additional off-road maneuver areas for training on WSMR. Copies of the FEIS are available at local libraries surrounding WSMR and may also be accessed at http:// www.wsmr.army.mil. Comments from the public will be considered before any final decision is made. Dated: December 14, 2009. Addison D.

ACTION: Agency Information Collection Activities: Proposed Collection Update; Informational. SUMMARY: The EIA issued a Proposed Collection Comment Request on ‘‘Report of Refinery Outages,’’ 73 FR 10745, PO 00000 Frm 00011 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Thursday, February 28, 2008, followed by an Informational Update, 73 FR 74713, Tuesday, December 9, 2008, indicating EIA’s postponement of a decision to collect refinery outage data. EIA has determined that collection of this data is necessary to meet the intent of Section 804 of the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Joanne Shore by e-mail at joanne.shore@eia.doe.gov or by telephone at 202–586–4677. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background II. Current Actions I. Background EIA recognizes the importance of understanding and anticipating supply changes that could affect prices paid by consumers for petroleum products. Refinery availability is an important element of this issue, and was highlighted in Section 804 of the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007 (Pub. L. 110–140), requiring EIA to assess the impact of planned outages using commercially available data. Congressional interest in having EIA collect such data was partially a result of unusually high refinery outages in 2007. In response, EIA put out a Federal Register notice in February 2008 (Proposed Collection Comment Request on ‘‘Report of Refinery Outages,’’ 73 FR 10745, Thursday, February 28, 2008), to solicit comments on collecting such data. This was followed by an informational Federal Register notice in December 2008 (Proposed Collection Update, 73 FR 74713, Tuesday, December 9, 2008) that provided the status of our review of this issue. For about two years, EIA has been using commercially available refinery outage data and evaluating its ability to meet the intent of Section 804. As summarized in the December 2008 Federal Register notice, commercial data captures significant outages and is cost-effective, while government collection is likely more accurate and could address production impacts as well as unit outages, albeit at a higher cost both to industry and the government. EIA’s evaluation indicates that commercial data is useful and appropriate for many purposes, but it falls short in two areas regarding EIA’s ability to meet the Section 804 requirements. First, commercial data sometimes misses a planned outage, picking it up shortly before or even after the outage begins. This is in part due to commercial data being accumulated E:\FR\FM\31DEN1.SGM 31DEN1
