Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) proposes to fund, construct, operate, and maintain a replacement aerial tramway (ATRAM) system on South Franklin Mountain, El Paso, Texas. The purpose of the proposed project is the replacement of the existing ATRAM with a modern ATRAM system. The FAA needs to continue the safe and reliable transport of FAA maintenance personnel to service communication facilities located at the top of South Franklin Mountain. The FAA's preferred alternative is to construct, operate, and maintain a replacement ATRAM at a location adjacent to the existing ATRAM system at South Franklin Mountain, El Paso, Texas. The FAA has prepared a Draft Environmental Assessment (DEA) in conformance with the requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) and FAA Order 1050.1E, Environmental Impacts: Policies and Procedures. The DEA analyzes the potential environmental impacts that may result from construction and operation of the proposed replacement ATRAM system at the proposed site, as well as the no action alternative (i.e., not constructing and operating the replacement ATRAM).

Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is considering a proposal to change a 0.747-acre portion of airport land from aeronautical use to non-aeronautical use and to authorize the sale of airport property located at Morris Municipal Airport, Morris, Illinois.

Currently, ownership of the property provides for protection of FAR Part 77 surfaces and compatible land use which would continue to be protected with deed restrictions required in the transfer of land ownership. The change from aeronautical to non-aeronautical use would allow for the widening of Route 47 which is directly adjacent to the airport. The aforementioned land is not needed for aeronautical use.

Proposed Amendment of Agency Information Collection
Document Number: 2013-15126
Type: Notice
Date: 2013-06-25
Agency: Department of Energy, Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy
The Department of Energy is proposing to merge two information collections into one more broad collection, one of which is approved and one of which was previously proposed pursuant to the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995. The approved collection is being used to develop a scorecard that will assist DOE's Clean Cities coalitions and stakeholders in assessing the level of readiness of their communities for plug-in electric vehicles (PEV). Information collected via the scorecard is intended to allow DOE to provide respondents with an objective assessment of their communities' readiness for PEV adoption and an understanding of their commitment to successful deployment of PEVs, and is needed to ensure appropriate evaluation of progress in deploying PEVs. The other, previously proposed information collection would be used to develop information that will enable DOE to measure the impact and progress of DOE's National Clean Fleets Partnership (Partnership). The Partnership is an initiative through which DOE provides large private-sector fleets with technical assistance and expertise to incorporate alternative fuels and fuel saving measures into their operations successfully. The initiative builds on the established success of DOE's Clean Cities Program. The Partnership was developed with input from fleet managers, industry representatives, Clean Cities program staff, and Clean Cities coordinators. DOE is also proposing to amend the PEV Scorecard information collection request by expanding the number of entities estimated to participate in the voluntary PEV Scorecard information collection.

The International Labor Comparisons (ILC) program adjusted foreign data to a common framework of concepts, definitions, and classifications to facilitate data comparisons between the United States and other countries. ILC data were used to assess United States economic performance relative to other countries, as well as to evaluate the competitive position of the United States in international markets. On March 1, 2013, President Obama ordered into effect the across- the-board spending cuts (commonly referred to as sequestration) required by the Balanced Budget and Emergency Deficit Control Act, as amended. In order to achieve these budget cuts and protect core programs, The Bureau of Labor Statistics is eliminating the International Labor Comparisons program. Subject to BLS policies and procedures, the underlying data and the methodology used to produce the data will be available upon request.
