FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Proposed Flood Elevation Determinations Federal Emergency Management Agency, DHS. ACTION: Proposed rule; correction. AGENCY: On November 29, 2011 and November 9, 2012, FEMA published in the Federal Register a proposed rule and a correction to the proposed rule that contained erroneous tables. This notice provides corrections to those tables, to be used in lieu of the information published at 76 FR 73537 and 76 FR 67325. The table provided here represents the flooding sources, location of referenced elevations, effective and modified elevations, and communities affected for Sullivan County, Pennsylvania (All Jurisdictions). Specifically, it addresses the flooding sources Big Run, Little Loyalsock Creek, Loyalsock Creek, and Muncy Creek. DATES: Comments are to be submitted on or before May 6, 2013. SUMMARY: Flooding Source(s) Correction The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) publishes proposed determinations of Base (1% annualchance) Flood Elevations (BFEs) and modified BFEs for communities participating in the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), in accordance with section 110 of the Flood Disaster Protection Act of 1973, 42 U.S.C. 4104, and 44 CFR 67.4(a). These proposed BFEs and modified BFEs, together with the floodplain management criteria required by 44 CFR 60.3, are the minimum that are required. They should not be construed to mean that the community must change any existing ordinances that are more stringent in their floodplain SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In the proposed rule published at 76 FR 73537, in the November 29, 2011, issue of the Federal Register, and in the proposed correction rule published at 76 FR 67325, in the November 9, 2012, issue of the Federal Register, FEMA published a table under the authority of 44 CFR 67.4. The table, entitled ‘‘Sullivan County, Pennsylvania (All Jurisdictions)’’ addressed the flooding sources Big Run, Little Loyalsock Creek, Loyalsock Creek, and Muncy Creek. Those tables contained inaccurate information as to the location of referenced elevation, effective and modified elevation in feet, or communities affected for these flooding sources.

The Commission also seeks comment on the following additional matters: the likely reasons that IP CTS has been experiencing unprecedented and unusually rapid growth; whether to prohibit all provider programs that give away or loan equipment to potential or existing IP CTS users at no cost or below some specified cost level; whether to require each IP CTS provider, as a condition of continuing to offer service to existing IP CTS users, to obtain registration and certification information from each such user; and whether to adopt any requirements for IP CTS equipment to have labels informing consumers that IP CTS may be used only by persons with hearing disabilities. The proposed rules are PO 00000 Frm 00051 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 intended to address certain practices related to the provision and marketing of IP CTS that appear to be contributing to a recent and dramatic spike in reimbursement requests to the TRS Fund of sufficient magnitude to constitute a serious threat to the Fund if not promptly and decisively addressed.

Proposed Flood Elevation Determinations

AGENCY: Federal Emergency Management Agency, DHS.

ACTION: Proposed rule; correction.

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

SUMMARY: On November 29, 2011 and November 9, 2012, FEMA published in 
the Federal Register a proposed rule and a correction to the proposed 
rule that contained erroneous tables. This notice provides corrections 
to those tables, to be used in lieu of the information published at 76 
FR 73537 and 76 FR 67325. The table provided here represents the 
flooding sources, location of referenced elevations, effective and 
modified elevations, and communities affected for Sullivan County, 
Pennsylvania (All Jurisdictions). Specifically, it addresses the 
flooding sources Big Run, Little Loyalsock Creek, Loyalsock Creek, and 
Muncy Creek.

DATES: Comments are to be submitted on or before May 6, 2013.

ADDRESSES: You may submit comments, identified by Docket No. FEMA-B-
1233, to Luis Rodriguez, Chief, Engineering Management Branch, Federal 
Insurance and Mitigation Administration, Federal Emergency Management 
Agency, 500 C Street SW., Washington, DC 20472, (202) 646-4064 or 
(email) Luis.Rodriguez3@fema.dhs.gov.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Luis Rodriguez, Chief, Engineering 
Management Branch, Federal Insurance and Mitigation Administration, 
Federal Emergency Management Agency, 500 C Street SW., Washington, DC 
20472, (202) 646-4064, or (email) Luis.Rodriguez3@fema.dhs.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Federal Emergency Management Agency 
(FEMA) publishes proposed determinations of Base (1% annual-chance) 
Flood Elevations (BFEs) and modified BFEs for communities participating 
in the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), in accordance with 
section 110 of the Flood Disaster Protection Act of 1973, 42 U.S.C. 
4104, and 44 CFR 67.4(a).
    These proposed BFEs and modified BFEs, together with the floodplain 
management criteria required by 44 CFR 60.3, are the minimum that are 
required. They should not be construed to mean that the community must 
change any existing ordinances that are more stringent in their 
floodplain management requirements. The community may at any time enact 
stricter requirements of its own or pursuant to policies established by 
other Federal, State, or regional entities. These proposed elevations 
are used to meet the floodplain management requirements of the NFIP and 
are also used to calculate the appropriate flood insurance premium 
rates for new buildings built after these elevations are made final, 
and for the contents in these buildings.

Correction

    In the proposed rule published at 76 FR 73537, in the November 29, 
2011, issue of the Federal Register, and in the proposed correction 
rule published at 76 FR 67325, in the November 9, 2012, issue of the 
Federal Register, FEMA published a table under the authority of 44 CFR 
67.4. The table, entitled ``Sullivan County, Pennsylvania (All 
Jurisdictions)'' addressed the flooding sources Big Run, Little 
Loyalsock Creek, Loyalsock Creek, and Muncy Creek. Those tables 
contained inaccurate information as to the location of referenced 
elevation, effective and modified elevation in feet, or communities 
affected for these flooding sources. In this notice, FEMA is publishing 
a table containing the accurate information, to address these prior 
errors. The information provided below should be used in lieu of that 
previously published.
