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 use of nondomestic 22 mm Industrial dock steel chain, 400 ft, in Maine, and U69 guard bars in Oregon. 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 for nondomestic 22mm Industrial deck fender chain, 400 ft. (https://www.fhwa.dot.gov/ construction/contracts/ waivers.cfm?id=40) on November 5. The FHWA received no comments in response to this notice which suggested that the 22 mm Industrial dock fender chain, 400 ft is available domestically. On November 13, FHWA published a notice of intent to issue a waiver for non-domestic turnouts (Manganese PO 00000 Frm 00127 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 37875 turnout castings, U69 guard bars, LV braces), and Weld kits (https:// www.fhwa.dot.gov/construction/ contracts/waivers.cfm?id=41). The FHWA received four comments which confirmed domestic availability of Manganese castings, LV braces, and Weld kits. During the 15-day comment periods, the FHWA conducted additional nationwide review to locate potential domestic manufacturers for the 22 mm Industrial dock fender steel chain, 400 ft, and U69 guard bars. Based on all the information available to the agency, the FHWA concludes that there are no domestic manufacturers for the 22 mm Industrial dock fender steel chain and U69 guard bars. Thus, the FHWA concludes that a Buy America waiver is appropriate for 22 mm Industrial dock fender steel chain and U69 guard bars, but not appropriate for Manganese turnout castings, LV braces, and Weld kits 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 for the 22 mm Industrial dock fender steel chain and U69 guard bars.

This notice provides information regarding the FHWA’s finding that a Buy America waiver is appropriate for the use of nondomestic 1″ diameter hollow core threaded share anchor rods for construction of a Federal-aid project in Oregon. In accordance with the Division I, section 126 of the ‘‘Omnibus Appropriations Act, 2009’’ (Pub. L. 111– 8), the FHWA published on its Web site a notice of intent to issue a waiver for the 1″ diameter hollow core threaded share anchor rods (https:// www.fhwa.dot.gov/construction/ contracts/waivers.cfm?id=43) on November 5th. The FHWA received four comments in response to this proposed waiver. Two of the comments concerned the availability of 1″ diameter hollow core threaded anchor rods and the other two were general comments unrelated to the domestic availability of this product. With respect to the two comments concerning the domestic availability of this product, one comment agreed that the product is not domestically available. The other comment noted three Web sites to manufacturers that may be able to produce this product. The FHWA spoke to representatives from two of the manufacturers who confirmed that they do not make the product. With respect to the third Web site (rods.pronto.com), the FHWA could not locate a specific Web site with this address. In addition, during the 15-day comment period, the FHWA conducted additional nationwide review to locate potential domestic manufacturers for the 1″ diameter hollow core threaded share anchor rods. Based on all the information available to the agency, the FHWA concludes that there are no domestic manufacturers for the 1″ diameter hollow core threaded share anchor rods. Thus, the FHWA concludes that a Buy America waiver is appropriate for the 1″ diameter hollow core threaded share anchor rods. E:\FR\FM\30JNN1.SGM 30JNN1

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 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 to use for the non-domestic alloy stainless steel 65061A 
double-ended beam, RLSCA-50k weighing system.
    In accordance with section 123 of Division A of the ``Consolidated 
Appropriations Act, 2010'' (Pub. L. 111-117), the FHWA published a 
notice of intent to issue a waiver on its Web site for the alloy 
stainless steel 65061A double-ended beam, RLSCA-50k weighing system 
(https://www.fhwa.dot.gov/construction/contracts/waivers.cfm?id=49) on 
May 25, 2010. The FHWA received no comments in response to the 
publication, which suggests that the alloy stainless steel 65061A 
double-ended beam, RLSCA-50k weighing system may not be available 
domestically. During the 15-day comment period, the FHWA conducted 
additional nationwide review to locate potential domestic manufacturers 
for the alloy stainless steel 65061A double-ended beam, RLSCA-50k 
weighing system. Based on all the information available to the agency, 
the FHWA concludes that there are no domestic manufacturers for the 
alloy stainless steel 65061A double-ended beam, RLSCA-50k weighing 
system.
    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 Oregon waiver page noted above.
