ACTION: Notice of Availability of the Finding of No Significant Impact for the Port of Guam Modernization Program. AGENCY: The purpose of this Notice is to make available to the public the Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) derived from the Environmental Assessment (EA) regarding the Port of Guam Modernization Program (Program).

A non-port operations area would be developed east of the proposed new break-bulk terminal to improve efficiency and security. New entrance and exit gates would be constructed to increase processing efficiency and reduce truck queuing times. Some existing buildings would be demolished, expanded, and/or refurbished and new buildings would be constructed. Deteriorating or failing utilities would be upgraded or replaced. Oil/water separators would be installed in storm water outfalls into the harbor. tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:34 Nov 07, 2012 Jkt 229001 [Docket No. AB 55 (Sub-No. 722X)] CSX Transportation, Inc.— Discontinuance of Service Exemption—in Anderson County, TN CSX Transportation, Inc. (CSXT) filed a verified notice of exemption under 49 CFR pt. 1152 subpart F—Exempt Abandonments and Discontinuances of Service to discontinue service over approximately a 4.85-mile rail line on CSXT’s Southern Region, Huntington Division, KD Subdivision, extending between milepost 0AE 251.15 at the connection with CSXT’s main line and milepost 0AE 256.0 at the end of the track in Oak Ridge, Anderson County, Tenn. The line traverses United States Postal Service Zip Code 37830. CSXT has certified that: (1) No local traffic has moved over the line for at least two years; (2) any overhead traffic can be and has been rerouted; (3) no formal complaint filed by a user of rail service on the line (or by a state or local government entity acting on behalf of such user) regarding cessation of service over the line either is pending with the Surface Transportation Board or with any U.S. District Court or has been decided in favor of complainant within the two-year period; and (4) the requirements at 49 CFR 1105.12 (newspaper publication) and 49 CFR 1152.50(d)(1) (notice to governmental agencies) have been met. As a condition to this exemption, any employee adversely affected by the discontinuance of service shall be PO 00000 Frm 00107 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 67057 protected under Oregon Short Line Railroad—Abandonment Portion Goshen Branch Between Firth & Ammon, in Bingham & Bonneville Counties, Idaho, 360 I.C.C. 91 (1979). To address whether this condition adequately protects affected employees, a petition for partial revocation under 49 U.S.C. 10502(d) must be filed. Provided no formal expression of intent to file an offer of financial assistance (OFA) has been received, this exemption will be effective on December 8, 2012, unless stayed pending reconsideration. Petitions to stay that do not involve environmental issues and formal expressions of intent to file an OFA for continued rail service under 49 CFR 1152.27(c)(2) 1 must be filed by November 19, 2012.2 Petitions to reopen must be filed by November 28, 2012, with the Surface Transportation Board, 395 E Street SW., Washington, DC 20423–0001. A copy of any petition filed with the Board should be sent to CSXT’s representative: Louis E. Gitomer, Law Offices of Louis E. Gitomer, LLC, 600 Baltimore Avenue, Suite 301, Towson, MD 21204.

See 49 CFR 1002.2(f)(25). 2 Because CSXT is seeking to discontinue service, not to abandon the line, trail use/rail banking and public use conditions are not appropriate. Likewise, no environmental or historic documentation is required here under 49 CFR 1105.6(c) and 49 CFR 1105.8(b), respectively.

The information is used by the agencies to analyze the foreign operations of U.S. banks. All foreign branches of U.S. banks with total assets of $50 million or more regardless of charter type file this report with the appropriate Federal Reserve District Bank. The Federal Reserve collects this information on behalf of the U.S. bank’s primary federal bank regulatory agency.

Accordingly, the Foreign Branch Report of Condition would be applicable to foreign branches, if any, of insured U.S. savings associations beginning as of the December 31, 2012, report date. No other changes are proposed to the FFIEC 030 or FFIEC 030S reporting forms or instructions in connection with the agencies’ request for approval to extend for three years, with revision, this collection of information.

602 (Board); 12 U.S.C. 161 and 602 (OCC); and 12 U.S.C. 1828 (FDIC).

Abstract

    The FFIEC 030 contains asset and liability information for foreign 
branches of insured U.S. banks and is required for regulatory and 
supervisory purposes. The information is used by the agencies to 
analyze the foreign operations of U.S. banks. All foreign branches of 
U.S. banks with total assets of $50 million or more regardless of 
charter type file this report with the appropriate Federal Reserve 
District Bank. The Federal Reserve collects this information on behalf 
of the U.S. bank's primary federal bank regulatory agency. The FFIEC 
030S contains five data items that branches with total assets between 
$50 million and $250 million file on an annual basis in lieu of the 
FFIEC 030 reporting form.

Current Actions

    On July 21, 2011, supervisory responsibility for federal and state-
chartered savings associations was transferred from the former Office 
of Thrift Supervision to the OCC and the FDIC, respectively, pursuant 
to Title III of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer 
Protection Act, Public Law 111-203. Accordingly, the Foreign Branch 
Report of Condition would be applicable to foreign branches, if any, of 
insured U.S. savings associations beginning as of the December 31, 
2012, report date. No other changes are proposed to the FFIEC 030 or 
FFIEC 030S reporting forms or instructions in connection with the 
agencies' request for approval to extend for three years, with 
revision, this collection of information. The agencies collectively 
received one comment on their July 30, 2012, Federal Register initial 
notice that supported the collection of the Foreign Branch Report of 
Condition.
