Under 33 CFR 127.007(e), an owner or operator planning such an expansion must also file or update a Waterway Suitability Assessment (WSA) that addresses the proposed increase in LNG or LHG marine traffic in the associated waterway. Oil Tanking North America submitted an LOI on May 12, 2011 and a WSA on April 24, 2012 regarding the company’s proposed expansion of its LHG facilities in Houston and Texas City, Texas. Under 33 CFR 127.009, after receiving an LOI, the COTP issues a Letter of Recommendation (LOR) as to the suitability of the waterway for LNG or LHG marine traffic to the appropriate jurisdictional authorities. The LOR is based on a series of factors outlined in 33 CFR 127.009 that relate to the physical nature of the affected waterway and issues of safety and security associated with LNG or LHG marine traffic on the affected waterway. The purpose of this notice is to solicit public comments on the proposed increase in LHG marine traffic in Houston and Texas City, Texas. The Coast Guard believes that input from the public may be useful to the COTP with VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:03 Nov 21, 2012 Jkt 229001 respect to development of the LOR. Additionally, the Coast Guard tasked the Area Maritime Security Committee, Houston-Galveston, Texas, with forming a subcommittee comprised of affected port users and stakeholders, including appropriate members of the Harbor Safety Committee. The goal of the subcommittee will be to gather information to help the COTP assess the suitability of the associated waterway for increased LHG marine traffic as it relates to navigational safety and security. On January 24, 2011, the Coast Guard published Navigation and Vessel Inspection Circular (NVIC) 01–2011, ‘‘Guidance Related to Waterfront Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) Facilities.’’ NVIC 01–2011 provides guidance for owners and operators seeking approval to build and operate LNG facilities. While NVIC 01–2011 is specific to LNG, it provides useful process information and guidance for owners and operators seeking approval to build and operate LHG facilities as well. The Coast Guard will refer to NVIC 01–2011 for process information and guidance in evaluating Oil Tanking North America’s WSA. A copy of NVIC 01–2011 is available for viewing in the public docket for this notice and also on the Coast Guard’s Web site at http://www.uscg.mil/hq/cg5/ nvic/2010s.asp. This notice is issued under the authority of 33 U.S.C. 1223–1225, Department of Homeland Security Delegation Number 0170.1(70), 33 CFR 127.009, and 33 CFR 103.205. Dated: October 19, 2012. J.H.

Section 516 of the Quality Housing and Work Responsibility Act of 1998 (QHWRA) (Pub. L. 105–276, October 21, 1998) added Section 30, Public Housing Mortgages and Security Interest, to the United States Housing Act of 1937 (1937 Act) (42 U.S.C. 1437z–2). Section 30 authorizes the Secretary of the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to approve a Housing Authority’s (HA) request to mortgage public housing real property or grant a security interest in other tangible forms of personal property if the proceeds of the loan resulting from the mortgage or security interest are used for low-income housing uses. Public Housing Agencies (PHAs) must provide information to HUD for approval to allow PHAs to grant a mortgage in public housing real estate or a security interest in some tangible form of personal property owned by the PHA for the purposes of securing loans or other financing for modernization or development of low-income housing. The title of the information collection has been changed to be more clearly descriptive of the range of transactions that would be reviewed under this collection for compliance with Section 30. There are several circumstances other than a mixed finance transaction that would potentially trigger this collection. For example, most recently Energy Performance Contract (EPC) transactions that provide for a security interest in energy improvements have been reviewed for approval under Section 30.
