The project limits were defined as the limits of the schematic design. The project limits were as follows: The northern limit was the US 181 and Beach Avenue interchange located north of the Corpus Christi Ship Channel but south of the Nueces Bay Causeway; the southern limit was the SH 286 and SH 358 (South Padre Island Drive) interchange; the eastern limit was the Interstate Highway (IH) 37/US 181 intersection with Shoreline Boulevard; and the western limit was the IH 37 and Nueces Bay Boulevard interchange. The project limits totaled approximately 7.5 miles in length from north to south along US 181 and SH 286, and 2.1 miles in length from east to west along IH 37. The study limits were defined as the limits of potential impacts from the proposed action. The study limits were as follows: the northern limit was the US 181 and SH 35 interchange just south of Gregory; the southern limit was the SH 286 and SH 358 (South Padre Island Drive) interchange; the eastern limit was Shoreline Boulevard; and the western limit was the IH 37 and SH 358 (North Padre Island Drive) interchange. The EIS was in the preliminary stages of development. Scoping meetings were held for representatives from various cooperating agencies and for the public. The scoping meeting for the representatives from various cooperating agencies was held May 17, 2007, at the TxDOT Corpus Christi District Office in Corpus Christi, Texas. The scoping meeting for the public was held May 17, 2007, at the Oveal Williams Senior Activity Center in Corpus Christi, Texas. FHWA and TxDOT have decided to rescind the revised Notice of Intent because of changes in the scope (managed toll lanes) and limits. We intend to publish a new NOI in the future, which will describe the new project scope and limits. The review of the project under the new NOI will also comply with the requirements of the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users (SAFETEA–LU) Section 6002 environmental review process.

ACTION: Notice; Issuance of Advisory Bulletin. AGENCY: Advisory Bulletin (ADB–10–08) PHMSA is issuing an Advisory Bulletin to remind operators of gas and hazardous liquid pipeline facilities that they must make their pipeline emergency response plans available to local emergency response officials. PHMSA recommends that operators provide their emergency response plans to officials through their required liaison and public awareness activities. PHMSA intends to evaluate the extent to which operators have provided their emergency plans to local emergency officials when PHMSA performs future inspections for compliance with liaison and public awareness code requirements. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: John Hess by phone at 202–366–4595 or by e-mail at john.hess@dot.gov. Information about PHMSA may be found at https://phmsa.dot.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: jlentini on DSKJ8SOYB1PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: Background Federal regulations for both gas and hazardous liquid pipelines require operators to have written procedures for responding to emergencies involving their pipeline facility. Because pipelines are often located in public space, the regulations further require that operators include procedures for planning with emergency and other public officials to ensure a coordinated response. Under 49 CFR 192.605, 192.615, and 195.402, operators must include in their emergency plans provisions for coordinating with appropriate fire, police, and other VerDate Mar<15>2010 19:21 Nov 02, 2010 Jkt 223001 public officials both preplanned drills and actual responses to pipeline emergencies. Operators must also establish and maintain liaison with the emergency officials to, among other things, acquaint the officials and the operator with their respective responsibilities and resources in planning for and responding to emergencies. Under §§ 192.616 and 195.440, operators must also develop and implement a written continuing public education program that follows the American Petroleum Institute’s (API) Recommended Practice (RP) 1162. Incorporated by reference, API RP 1162 further requires operators to develop their emergency response plans with appropriate emergency officials to include in such plans information about how emergency officials can access the operator’s emergency response plan, and to conduct emergency response drills. To: Owners and Operators of Hazardous Liquid and Gas Pipeline Systems. Subject: Emergency Preparedness Communications. Advisory: To further enhance the Department’s safety efforts, PHMSA is issuing this Advisory Bulletin about emergency preparedness communications between pipeline operators and emergency responders. To ensure a prompt, effective, and coordinated response to any type of emergency involving a pipeline facility, pipeline operators are required to maintain an informed relationship with emergency responders in their jurisdiction. PHMSA reminds pipeline operators of these requirements, and in particular, the need to share the operator’s emergency response plans with emergency responders. PHMSA recommends that operators provide such information to responders through the operator’s liaison and public awareness activities, including during joint emergency response drills. PHMSA intends to evaluate the extent to which operators have provided local emergency responders with their emergency plans when PHMSA performs future inspections for compliance with relevant requirements.

Bureau of the Public Debt, Fiscal Service, Treasury. ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: The Department of the Treasury (Treasury) is announcing a new fee schedule applicable to transfers of U.S. Treasury book-entry securities maintained on the National Book-Entry System (NBES) that occur on or after January 3, 2011. DATES: Effective Date: January 3, 2011. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Kevin Hawkins or Kristina Yeh, Bureau of the Public Debt, Department of the Treasury at (202) 504–3550. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Treasury has established a fee structure for the transfer of Treasury book-entry securities maintained on NBES. Treasury reassesses this fee structure periodically, based on our review of the latest book-entry costs and volumes. For each Treasury securities transfer or reversal sent or received on or after January 3, 2011, the basic fee will increase from $0.31 to $0.38. The Federal Reserve will also increase its fee for Federal Reserve funds movement from $0.06 to $0.07. This will result in a combined fee of $0.45 for each transfer of Treasury book-entry securities. The surcharge for an off-line Treasury bookentry securities transfer will remain $33.00. The basic transfer fee assessed to both sends and receives is reflective of costs associated with the processing of securities transfers. The off-line surcharge reflects the additional processing costs associated with the manual processing of off-line securities transfers. Treasury does not charge a fee for account maintenance, the stripping and reconstitution of Treasury securities, the wires associated with original issues, or interest and redemption payments. Treasury currently absorbs these costs. The fees described in this notice apply only to the transfer of Treasury book-entry securities held on NBES. Information concerning fees for bookentry transfers of Government Agency securities, which are priced by the Federal Reserve System, is set out in a separate Federal Register notice published by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System. The following is the Treasury fee schedule that will take effect on January SUMMARY: E:\FR\FM\03NON1.SGM 03NON1
