This preferential treatment is also available for apparel articles assembled in one or more lesser-developed beneficiary subSaharan African countries, regardless of the country of origin of the fabric used to make such articles, subject to quantitative limitation. Title VI of the TRHCA 2006 extended this special rule for lesser-developed countries through September 30, 2012. The AGOA Acceleration Act of 2004 provides that the quantitative limitation for the twelve-month period beginning October 1, 2011 will be an amount not to exceed 7 percent of the aggregate square meter equivalents of all apparel articles imported into the United States in the preceding 12-month period for which data are available. See Section 112(b)(3)(A)(ii)(I) of TDA 2000, as amended by Section 7(b)(2)(B) of the AGOA Acceleration Act of 2004. Of this overall amount, apparel imported under the special rule for lesser-developed countries is limited to an amount not to exceed 3.5 percent of all apparel articles imported into the United States in the preceding 12-month period. See Section 112(b)(3)(B)(ii)(II) of TDA 2000, as amended by Section 6002(a) of TRHCA 2006. Presidential Proclamation 7350 of October 2, 2000 directed CITA to publish the aggregate quantity of imports allowed during each 12-month period in the Federal Register. For the one-year period, beginning on October 1, 2011, and extending through September 30, 2012 the aggregate quantity of imports eligible for preferential treatment under these provisions is 1,877,430,342 square meters equivalent. Of this amount, 938,715,171 square meters equivalent is available to apparel articles imported under the special rule for lesserdeveloped countries. Apparel articles entered in excess of these quantities will be subject to otherwise applicable tariffs. These quantities are calculated using the aggregate square meter equivalents of all apparel articles imported into the United States, derived from the set of Harmonized System lines listed in the Annex to the World Trade Organization Agreement on Textiles and Clothing (ATC), and the conversion factors for units of measure into square meter equivalents used by the United States in implementing the ATC.

The proposed divert activities and exercises would involve airfield improvements designed to provide additional divert capability for various military aircraft operating as part of joint training exercises, humanitarian assistance activities, and disaster relief operations for northeast Asia. The proposed action would include the development and construction of facilities and infrastructure designed to support up to one tanker squadron of 12 KC–135 aircraft and its approximately 500 support personnel. This proposed action includes divert activities and exercises involving a tanker squadron, as well as USAF, U.S. Navy, or other military aircraft operating in the region, and ideally would require a 10,000-foot runway. Components of the proposal include a cargo pad; an expanded runway area; new taxiways, aprons, and shoulders; 6,000-square foot maintenance facility; jet fuel receiving, storage, and delivery capability; and associated pavement markings, lighting, security, and other related infrastructure. The possible alternatives for the divert airfield capability include the international airports on Saipan, Tinian, Rota, or other reasonable alternatives developed during the scoping process. Guam International Airport, as an existing divert location, will be considered in this EIS, as part of the no action alternative. The Air Force is in the process of inviting potential Cooperating Agencies to participate in aspects of the EIS development as appropriate or required.

SUMMARY: Pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of

Environmental Impact Analysis Process (32 CFR part 989), the USAF is 
issuing this notice to advise the public of its intent to prepare an 
Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for Divert Activities and 
Exercises, Guam and Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands.
    The proposed divert activities and exercises would involve airfield 
improvements designed to provide additional divert capability for 
various military aircraft operating as part of joint training 
exercises, humanitarian assistance activities, and disaster relief 
operations for northeast Asia. The proposed action would include the 
development and construction of facilities and infrastructure designed 
to support up to one tanker squadron of 12 KC-135 aircraft and its 
approximately 500 support personnel. This proposed action includes 
divert activities and exercises involving a tanker squadron, as well as

aprons, and shoulders; 6,000-square foot maintenance facility; jet fuel 
receiving, storage, and delivery capability; and associated pavement 
markings, lighting, security, and other related infrastructure.
    The possible alternatives for the divert airfield capability 
include the international airports on Saipan, Tinian, Rota, or other 
reasonable alternatives developed during the scoping process. Guam 
International Airport, as an existing divert location, will be 
considered in this EIS, as part of the no action alternative.
