SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Middle Class Tax Relief and Job Creation Act of 2012 (Pub. L. 112–96, Title VI, 126 Stat. 256 (codified at 47 U.S.C. 1401 et seq.)) (the ‘‘Act’’) created and authorized FirstNet to take all actions necessary to ensure the building, deployment, and operation of an interoperable, nationwide public safety broadband network (‘‘NPSBN’’) based on a single, national network architecture. The Act meets a longstanding and critical national infrastructure need, to create a single, nationwide network that will, for the first time, allow police officers, fire fighters, emergency medical service professionals, and other public safety entities to effectively communicate with each other across agencies and jurisdictions. The National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (42 U.S.C. 4321–4347) (‘‘NEPA’’) requires federal agencies to Central West Colorado Illinois Indiana Iowa Kansas Michigan Minnesota Missouri Montana Nebraska North Dakota Ohio South Dakota Utah Wisconsin Wyoming Arizona California Idaho Nevada Oregon Washington Once a PEIS is completed and a Record of Decision (ROD) is signed, the proposed FirstNet projects can begin to submit the site-specific environmental documentation to determine if the proposed project has been adequately evaluated in the PEIS or warrants a Categorical Exclusion, an Environmental Assessment, or an Environmental Impact Statement. undertake an assessment of environmental effects of their proposed actions prior to making a final decision and implementing the action. NEPA requirements apply to any federal project, decision, or action that may have a significant impact on the quality of the human environment. NEPA also establishes the Council on Environmental Quality (‘‘CEQ’’), which issued regulations implementing the procedural provisions of NEPA (see 40 CFR parts 1500–1508). Among other considerations, CEQ regulations at 40 CFR 1508.28 recommend the use of tiering from a ‘‘broader environmental impact statement (such as a national program or policy statements) with subsequent narrower statements or environmental analysis (such as regional or basin wide statements or ultimately site-specific statements) incorporating by reference the general discussions and concentrating solely on the issues specific to the statement subsequently prepared.’’ Due to the geographic scope of FirstNet (all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and five territories) and the diversity of ecosystems potentially traversed by the project, FirstNet has elected to prepare five regional PEISs. The five PEISs will be divided as follows: South Non-contiguous Alabama Arkansas Florida Georgia Kentucky Louisiana Mississippi New Mexico North Carolina Oklahoma South Carolina Tennessee Texas Dated: November 6, 2014.

(2006 & Supp. IV 2010)) (‘‘IEEPA’’). Specifically, Hashemi knowingly and willfully agreed and conspired with others, known and unknown, to export and cause the exportation, sale, and supply, indirectly, of aircraft parts from the United States to Iran without having first obtained the required licenses and authorizations from the Office of Foreign Assets Control, United States Department of Treasury (‘‘OFAC’’), and to engage in transactions within the Unites States that evade and avoid, and have the purpose of evading and avoiding, the prohibition against exporting, reexporting, selling and supplying, directly and indirectly, aircraft parts from the United States to Iran without having first obtained the required licenses and authorizations from OFAC. Hashemi was sentenced to 27 months of imprisonment, three years of supervised release, and a $100 assessment. PO 00000 Frm 00003 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Section 766.25 of the Export Administration Regulations (‘‘EAR’’ or ‘‘Regulations’’) 1 provides, in pertinent part, that ‘‘[t]he Director of the Office of Exporter Services, in consultation with the Director of the Office of Export Enforcement, may deny the export privileges of any person who has been convicted of a violation of the Export Administration Act (‘‘EAA’’), the EAR, or any order, license or authorization issued thereunder; any regulation, license, or order issued under the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 1701–1706); 18 U.S.C. 793, 794 or 798; section 4(b) of the Internal Security Act of 1950 (50 U.S.C. 783(b)), or section 38 of the Arms Export Control Act (22 U.S.C. 2778).’’ 15 CFR 766.25(a); see also Section 11(h) of the EAA, 50 U.S.C. app. 2410(h). The denial of export privileges under this provision may be for a period of up to 10 years from the date of the conviction. 15 CFR 766.25(d); see also 50 U.S.C. app. 2410(h). In addition, Section 750.8 of the Regulations states that the Bureau of Industry and Security’s Office of Exporter Services may revoke any Bureau of Industry and Security (‘‘BIS’’) licenses previously issued in which the person had an interest in at the time of his conviction. BIS has received notice of Hashemi’s conviction for violating the IEEPA and in accordance with Section 766.25 of the Regulations, BIS has provided notice and an opportunity for Hashemi to make a written submission to BIS. Subsequently, BIS granted Hashemi a 60-day extension until September 26, 2014 to submit a response. BIS has not received a submission from Hashemi. Based upon my review and consultations with BIS’s Office of Export Enforcement, including its Director, and the facts available to BIS, I have decided to deny Hashemi’s export privileges under the Regulations for a period of 10 years from the date of Hashemi’s conviction. I have also decided to revoke all licenses issued pursuant to the Act or Regulations in which Hashemi had an interest at the time of his conviction. Accordingly, it is hereby ordered: 1 The Regulations are currently codified in the Code of Federal Regulations at 15 CFR Parts 730– 774 (2014). The Regulations issued pursuant to the Export Administration Act (50 U.S.C. app. 2401– 2420 (2000)) (‘‘EAA’’). Since August 21, 2001, the EAA has been in lapse and the President, through Executive Order 13222 of August 17, 2001 (3 CFR, 2001 Comp. 783 (2002)), which has been extended by successive Presidential Notices, the most recent being that of August 7, 2014 (79 FR 46959 (August 11, 2014)), has continued the Regulations in effect under the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 1701, et seq.
