Download as PDF srobinson on DSKHWCL6B1PROD with PROPOSALS Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 2 / Tuesday, January 5, 2010 / Notices membrane treatment systems are only manufactured outside of the U.S. Therefore, based on the information provided to EPA and to the best of our knowledge at this time, Zenon ZeeWeed 1000 submerged membranes are not manufactured in the United States, and no other U.S. manufactured product can meet Valley City’s performance specifications and requirements. The purpose of the ARRA is to stimulate economic recovery in part by funding current infrastructure construction, not to delay projects that are ‘‘shovel ready’’ by requiring cities such as Valley City to revise their standards and specifications and to start the bidding process again. The imposition of ARRA Buy American requirements on such projects otherwise eligible for ARRA State Revolving Fund assistance would result in unreasonable delay and thus displace the ‘‘shovel ready’’ status for this project. To further delay project implementation is in direct conflict with a fundamental economic purpose of the ARRA, which is to create or retain jobs. EPA’s national contractor prepared a technical assessment report dated December 2, 2009 based on the submitted waiver request. The report determined that the waiver request submittal was complete, that adequate technical information was provided, and that there were no significant weaknesses in the justification provided. The report confirmed the waiver applicant’s claim that there are no comparable domestic products that can meet the project specifications. The Technical & Financial Services Unit has reviewed this waiver request and has determined that the supporting documentation provided by Valley City is sufficient to meet the criteria listed under Section 1605(b) of the ARRA and in the April 28, 2009, ‘‘Implementation of Buy American provisions of Public Law 111–5, the ‘American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009’ Memorandum’’: Iron, steel, and the manufactured goods are not produced in the United States in sufficient and reasonably available quantities and of a satisfactory quality. The basis for this project waiver is the authorization provided in Section 1605(b)(2) of the ARRA. Due to the lack of production of this product in the United States in sufficient and reasonably available quantities and of a satisfactory quality in order to meet Valley City’s performance specifications and requirements, a waiver from the Buy American requirement is justified. The March 31, 2009 Delegation of Authority Memorandum provided Regional Administrators with the VerDate Nov<24>2008 16:41 Jan 04, 2010 Jkt 220001 authority to issue exceptions to Section 1605 of the ARRA within the geographic boundaries of their respective regions and with respect to requests by individual grant recipients. Having established both a proper basis to specify the particular good required for this project, and that this manufactured good was not available from a producer in the United States, Valley City is hereby granted a waiver from the Buy American requirements of Section 1605(a) of Public Law 111–5 for the purchase of Zenon ZeeWeed 1000 submerged membranes using ARRA funds as specified in the City’s request of September 16, 2009. This supplementary information constitutes the detailed written justification required by Section 1605(c) for waivers ‘‘based on a finding under subsection (b).’’ Authority: Public Law 111–5, section 1605.

To ensure the accuracy of these disclosures, the Rule also requires that sellers maintain records substantiating product-specific disclosures they include on these labels.

Comments also should not include any sensitive health information, such as medical E:\FR\FM\05JAN1.SGM 05JAN1
