Requested Administrative Waiver of the Coastwise Trade Laws: Vessel CHI; Invitation for Public Comments, 19064-19065 [2013-07242]

Download as PDF 19064 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 60 / Thursday, March 28, 2013 / Notices mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES respondents, Mouhamad A. Naboulsi and James Agalzoff, opposed the waiver request. One comment simply stated that American products should be used on America projects. The FHWA agrees with this sentiment and intends to enforce Buy America as required by law. However, in this case, Kentucky has not been able to find these products containing 100 percent American iron and steel, even though the engines and compressors themselves are made in America. The other commenter opposed the waiver because foreign parts will continue to be used if waivers continue to be granted. We agree that the industry may eventually decide to start producing these parts if the industry finds it worthwhile to do so. However, the FHWA cannot continue to hold this project based on the hope that the American industry may someday produce these parts. Three respondents, Jeff Amburn, Tony E. Stauffer, and Melinda Mcpeek, on behalf of their corporations, expressed support for the waiver request. During the 15-day comment period, the FHWA conducted additional nationwide review to locate potential domestic manufacturers of the iron and steel products in GenSet diesel engine and air compressor for CMAQ project in the Commonwealth of Kentucky. Based on all the information available to the agency, the FHWA concludes that there are no domestic manufacturers of the iron and steel products in GenSet diesel engine and air compressor for CMAQ project in the Commonwealth of Kentucky. In accordance with the provisions of section 117 of the SAFETEA–LU Technical Corrections Act of 2008 (Pub. L. 110–244, 122 Stat. 1572), the FHWA is providing this notice as its finding that a waiver of Buy America requirements is appropriate. The FHWA invites public comment on this finding for an additional 15 days following the effective date of the finding. Comments may be submitted to the FHWA’s Web site via the link provided to the Kentucky waiver page noted above. (Authority: 23 U.S.C. 313; Pub. L. 110– 161, 23 CFR 635.410) Issued on: March 21, 2013.
