Thus, individuals seeking notification and access to any record contained in the system of records, or seeking to contest its content, may submit a request in writing to the DHS/TSA’s FOIA Officer, whose contact information can be found at http://www.dhs.gov/foia under ‘‘Contacts.’’ If an individual believes more than one component maintains Privacy Act records concerning him or her, the individual may submit the request to the Chief Privacy Officer and Chief Freedom of Information Act Officer, Department of Homeland Security, 245 Murray Drive SW., Building 410, STOP–0655, Washington, DC 20528.

Without the above information, the component(s) may not be able to conduct an effective search, and your request may be denied due to lack of specificity or lack of compliance with applicable regulations.

Basis and Purpose

    This ACP is required by Title IV, Section 4202 of the Oil Pollution 
Act of 1990, which amends Subsection (j) of Section 311 of the Federal 
Water Pollution Control Act (33 U.S.C. 1321 (j)), as amended by the 
Clean Water Act of 1977 (33 U.S.C. 1251 et. seq.) to address the 
development of a National Planning and Response System. This ACP is 
also written in conjunction with the National Oil and Hazardous 
Substance Pollution Contingency Plan (NCP) (40 CFR 300) and the 
Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act of 
1980 (42 U.S.C. 9601) as amended by the Superfund Amendments and 
Reauthorization Act of 1986.
    Under the National Contingency Plan (NCP) (40 CFR 300), the Coast 
Guard and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) provide the leadership 
of the National Response Team (NRT), the Regional Response Teams (RRT) 
and local Area Committees to engage the National Response System to 
verify threats (spill potential), risks (resources that might be harmed 
in a spill), and establish the strategies necessary to prepare for and 
respond to a pollution incident or event. Pursuant to Executive Order 
12777 of October 22, 1991, the EPA is responsible for the inland zone 
and the Coast Guard is responsible for the coastal zone. The Coast 
Guard and EPA are responsible for organizing and overseeing the NY/NJ 
Area Committee and the NY/NJ Area Committee is responsible for 
developing the NY/NJ ACP. ACPs are periodically reviewed and revised. 
The NY/NJ ACP is currently under review.
    The coastal zone addressed by the NY/NJ ACP is situated within the 
boundaries of the RRT for Region 2 (RRT-II). At a meeting on April 9-
10, 2014, in Albany, New York, a meeting of the RRT-II discussed 
response preparations for potential crude oil spills on the Hudson 
River with members from the NY/NJ Area Committee, numerous federal and 
state agencies, as well as attendees from private industry, 
nongovernmental organizations, the media and private citizens. The 
discussions that occurred at the RRT-II's April 9-10, 2014 meeting will 
be used in updating the NY/NJ ACP, as well as the results and lessons 
learned from the National Preparedness for Response Exercise Program 
(PREP) exercises of the ACP. The most recent full-scale PREP exercise 
was held on September 17, 2013 and was based upon a spill scenario in 
western Long Island Sound that impacted both New York and Connecticut.

Request for Comments

    The Coast Guard is aware of reports of increased oil transport in 
the coastal zone covered by the NY/NJ ACP. We are also aware of an 
increased national trend to move oil via rail through the Coastal Zone. 
The Coast Guard is, therefore, particularly interested in receiving 
public comment regarding the transport of oil via rail through the 
coastal zone covered by the NY/NJ ACP. Public input will be used to 
assist the Coast Guard in determining response resource needs in 
updating the NY/NJ ACP.
    The Coast Guard and EPA are working with representatives from the 
State of New York and other federal agencies of the NY/NJ Area 
Committee to schedule additional public engagement opportunities to 
obtain public input on the NY/NJ ACP. We will announce the time and 
place of any meetings by a later notice in the Federal Register. In 
accordance with 40 CFR 1506.6(b)(1), the Coast Guard will inform those 
persons who may be interested in participating in the NY/NJ Area 
Committee's update of the NY/NJ ACP. Individual contact information for 
updates on the NY/NJ ACP or an opportunity to participate in the NY/NJ 
Area Committee process should be provided to the person listed in the 
FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT paragraph by October 10, 2014.
    This notice is issued under authority of 33 U.S.C. 1321(j) and, 5 
U.S.C. 552(a).
