SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The tiltrotor MV–22 Osprey aircraft provides the ‘‘next generation equipment’’ offering increased speed, longer range, and greater mission versatility than a helicopter. The MV–22 also satisfies the medium-lift capability needed for assault support transport of combat troops, equipment, and supplies. The HMLA squadron will be relocated from Marine Corps Base (MCB) Camp Pendleton to provide rotary-wing lightlift and attack capabilities not currently based in Hawaii and routine training with infantry.

The Board invites interested persons or groups to present comments, technical information, or data concerning safety issues related to the matters to be considered.

STATUS Open. While the Government in the Sunshine Act does not require that the scheduled discussion be conducted in a meeting, the Board has determined that an open meeting in this specific case furthers the public interests underlying both the Sunshine Act and the Board’s enabling legislation. MATTERS TO BE CONSIDERED: In Session I of this public meeting and hearing, the Board will examine the National Nuclear Security Administration’s (NNSA) efforts to mitigate risks to public and worker safety posed by aging defense nuclear facilities at the Y–12 National Security Complex. The Board will receive testimony from NNSA and its contractors concerning the operations at existing Y–12 defense nuclear facilities, including Building 9212, Building 9204–2E, and Building 9215. The Board is interested in actions taken to address recent issues with conduct of operations, maintenance, and work planning; the contractor’s processes for identifying and resolving safety issues; and the effectiveness of NNSA’s oversight for nuclear operations. The Board will also examine the status of emergency preparedness at Y–12 and will receive testimony concerning how well NNSA and its contractor are prepared to respond to severe events and site emergencies. The Board is interested in lessons learned from the events at the Fukushima Daiichi complex and the actions taken to incorporate these lessons learned at the site-wide level and in defense nuclear facility operations. During Session II, the Board will receive testimony regarding factors that could affect the timely execution and safety of the Uranium Processing Facility (UPF) project. These factors include the federal project team’s strategy for identifying and resolving safety issues in a timely manner. The Board is also interested in exploring the potential safety impacts of NNSA’s decision to accelerate the acquisition of select processing capabilities and defer others to a later date, as well as the potential for weaknesses in technology development to impact safety. The public hearing portion of this proceeding is authorized by 42 U.S.C. 2286b.

Record of Decision for the U.S. Marine Corps Basing of MV-22 and 
H-1 Aircraft in Support of III Marine Expeditionary Force Elements in 
Hawaii

AGENCY: Department of the Navy, DoD.

ACTION: Notice of Record of Decision.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: Pursuant to Section 102(2)(c) of the National Environmental 
Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969, 42 United States Code (U.S.C) 4321-4374, as 
implemented by the Council on Environmental Quality regulations, 40 
Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Parts 1500-1508, Department of the 
Navy (DoN) NEPA regulations (32 CFR part 775), and Marine Corps Order 
P5090.2A (with Changes 1 and 2) Marine Corps Environmental Compliance 
and Protection Manual, Chapter 12, the DoN announces its decision to 
base and operate up to two Marine Medium Tiltrotor (VMM) squadrons (up 
to 12 MV-22 Osprey per squadron, for a total of 24 aircraft) and one 
Marine Light Attack Helicopter (HMLA) squadron (15 AH-1 Cobra attack 
and 12 UH-1 Huey utility helicopters, for a total of 27 aircraft) in 
support of III Marine Expeditionary Force elements in Hawaii.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The tiltrotor MV-22 Osprey aircraft provides 
the ``next generation equipment'' offering increased speed, longer 
range, and greater mission versatility than a helicopter. The MV-22 
also satisfies the medium-lift capability needed for assault support 
transport of combat troops, equipment, and supplies. The HMLA squadron 
will be relocated from Marine Corps Base (MCB) Camp Pendleton to 
provide rotary-wing light-lift and attack capabilities not currently 
based in Hawaii and routine training with infantry. The 3d Regiment at 
MCB Hawaii Kaneohe Bay is the only infantry regiment within the Marine 
Corps that

[[Page 48970]]

does not routinely train with rotary-wing light-lift and attack 
support.
    In support of the proposed action to base and operate up to two VMM 
squadrons and one HMLA squadron in Hawaii, the DoN will: (1) Implement 
facilities projects at MCB Hawaii Kaneohe Bay to accommodate the 
squadrons, to include demolition, new construction, and renovation; (2) 
conduct aviation training, readiness, and special exercise operations 
at training facilities and federally obligated state airports 
statewide; and (3) construct improvements at selected training 
facilities.
    All practical means to avoid or minimize environmental harm from 
the selected alternative have been adopted.

viewing on the project Web site at www.mcbh.usmc.mil/mv22h1eis along 
with the Final Environmental Impact Statement and the Programmatic 
Agreement negotiated under Section 106 of the National Historic 
Preservation Act. For further information, contact Naval Facilities
