SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The regulations in 9 CFR part 93 govern the importation into the United States of specified animals and animal products in order to help prevent the introduction of various animal diseases into the United States. The regulations in part 93 require, among other things, that certain animals, as a condition of entry, be quarantined upon arrival in the United States. The Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) of the U.S. Department of Agriculture currently operates three animal quarantine facilities. We also authorize the use of quarantine facilities that are privately owned and operated for certain animal importations. APHIS oversight and monitoring is still required at privately owned quarantines. In order to provide a forum for the discussion of the current and future capacity for live animal import quarantines, we are advising the public that we are hosting six public meetings. The public meetings will be held as follows: • February 19, 2014, at the Embassy Suites, Los Angeles-International Airport/South, 1440 E. Imperial Avenue, El Segundo, CA 90245. • February 25, 2014, at the Clarion Hotel Conference Center, Louisville North, 505 Marriott Drive, Clarksville, IN 47129. • February 27, 2014, at the Embassy Suites Chicago Downtown Lakefront, 511 N.

The public meetings will begin at 8 a.m. local time and are scheduled to end at 5 p.m. The meetings will be open to the public and registration will begin at 7:30 a.m. the day of each meeting. These public meetings will provide an opportunity for members of the public (including other Federal and State regulatory agencies) to provide input for developing and implementing possible alternatives to existing APHIS requirements and oversight for live animal quarantines as required under our regulations. Tentative topics to be discussed at the upcoming meetings include: 1. General considerations in choosing import quarantine services. 2. Considerations in choosing a particular location for animal quarantine. 3. Expectations regarding e-commerce and animal import quarantine. 4. Experience with quarantine facilities in other countries. 5. The impact of marketplace changes on animal import quarantine. 6. Other options, ideas, or topics APHIS should consider before making any changes to current animal import quarantine processes. Travel directions to the USDA Center at Riverside are available on the Internet at http://www.aphis.usda.gov/plant_ health/general_info/directions_ riverdale.shtml.
