SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Northwest Mountain Region of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) as lead agency and the National Park Service (NPS) and Bureau of Land Management (BLM) as cooperating agencies have prepared a Draft Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (Draft SEIS) and Section 4(f) Evaluation to address issues arising from the 1993 Tenth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals Decision concerning the development of Cal Black Memorial Airport. This Draft SEIS and Section 4(f) Evaluation does not involve any new development or project at the airport. The Cal Black Memorial Airport opened in April 1992. Halls Crossing Airport was located within the boundary of the Glen Canyon National Recreation Area, a unit of the National Park Service (NPS). Due to safety issues with that airport, an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) was prepared concerning the development of a replacement airport. In 1990, the FAA issued a Draft and Final EIS for the development of a replacement airport. In August 1990, the FAA issued a Record of Decision (ROD) approving the development of Cal Black Memorial Airport. The FAA determined in the ROD that the use of the BLM lands upon which the airport would be built was reasonably necessary for the project. Accordingly, the BLM issued a Patent for the airport land to San Juan County on September 25, 1990. In reaching its approval, the FAA determined that no significant impacts would result from the new airport to the recreational experience of visitors to the recreational area. In 1990, the National Parks and Conservation Association (NPCA), et al brought suit against the FAA concerning the adequacy of the EIS and the adequacy of the BLM Plan Amendment and land transfer process. In its July 7, 1993 decision, the Tenth Circuit of the U.S. Court of Appeals remanded the EIS back to the FAA and BLM for further environmental analysis of aircraft noise impacts to the recreational use of public lands and the BLM’s plan amendment and transfer of land. VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:14 Apr 30, 2015 Jkt 235001 On November 17, 2008 the BLM issued the Monticello Field Office Record of Decision and Approved Resource Management Plan. The document provides guidance for the management of Federal lands administered by the BLM in San Juan County and a small portion of Grant County in southeast Utah and includes provisions for the disposal of the Cal Black Memorial Airport property. FAA prepared a Draft SEIS and Section 4(f) Evaluation for the Replacement Airport at Halls Crossing to address the requirements of the U.S. Court of Appeals’ findings. The scope of the Draft SEIS and Section 4(f) Evaluation included: (1) The measurement of actual aircraft noise levels in GCNRA and visitor survey, (2) an updated evaluation of existing and future aircraft noise levels; (3) a Section 4(f) evaluation using the updated noise analysis; and (4) an analysis on potential cumulative effects. The Draft SEIS was made available for a 45-day public review and comment period on December 12, 2014. The comment period included an opportunity to request a public hearing; however, no requests for a hearing were received. Comments were received by various parties and an errata sheet was prepared to identify changes that were made to the Draft SEIS in response to the public input. Additionally, Appendix J was prepared to document each comment received as well as FAA’s response to each comment. These additional documents, in combination with the Draft SEIS, constitute the Final SEIS for the Replacement Airport at Halls Crossing. Issued in Renton, Washington April 27, 2015. Sarah P.

ACTION: Notice of application for exemption; request for comments. AGENCY: PO 00000 Frm 00111 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 FMCSA requests public comment on an application for exemption from the Entertainer Motorcoach Council (EMC) to allow its members to operate certain vehicles that do not meet the emergency exit requirements in the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSRs). The FMCSRs require buses with a gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of more than 10,000 pounds, manufactured on or after September 1, 1994, to meet the emergency exit requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 217, ‘‘Bus Emergency exits and window retention and release’’ in effect on the date of manufacture. FMVSS No. 217 requires side exits and at least one rear exit, but when the bus configuration precludes installation of an accessible rear exit, a roof exit is required in the rear half of the bus to provide a means of egress when the bus is overturned on either side. EMC believes that while certain ‘‘Entertainer Coaches’’ do not have a rear or roof exit, the emergency exit windows at the rear sides of the vehicle that open manually and provide openings large enough to admit unobstructed passage provide an equivalent level of safety. DATES: Comments must be received on or before June 1, 2015. ADDRESSES: You may submit comments bearing the Federal Docket Management System (FDMS) Docket ID FMCSA– 2015–0113 using any of the following methods: • Web site: http:// www.regulations.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Northwest Mountain Region of the Federal 
Aviation Administration (FAA) as lead agency and the National Park 
Service (NPS) and Bureau of Land Management (BLM) as cooperating 
agencies have prepared a Draft Supplemental Environmental Impact 
Statement (Draft SEIS) and Section 4(f) Evaluation to address issues 
arising from the 1993 Tenth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals Decision 
concerning the development of Cal Black Memorial Airport. This Draft 
SEIS and Section 4(f) Evaluation does not involve any new development 
or project at the airport. The Cal Black Memorial Airport opened in 
April 1992.
    Halls Crossing Airport was located within the boundary of the Glen 
Canyon National Recreation Area, a unit of the National Park Service 
(NPS). Due to safety issues with that airport, an Environmental Impact 
Statement (EIS) was prepared concerning the development of a 
replacement airport. In 1990, the FAA issued a Draft and Final EIS for 
the development of a replacement airport. In August 1990, the FAA 
issued a Record of Decision (ROD) approving the development of Cal 
Black Memorial Airport. The FAA determined in the ROD that the use of 
the BLM lands upon which the airport would be built was reasonably 
necessary for the project. Accordingly, the BLM issued a Patent for the 
airport land to San Juan County on September 25, 1990. In reaching its 
approval, the FAA determined that no significant impacts would result 
from the new airport to the recreational experience of visitors to the 
recreational area.
    In 1990, the National Parks and Conservation Association (NPCA), et 
al brought suit against the FAA concerning the adequacy of the EIS and 
the adequacy of the BLM Plan Amendment and land transfer process. In 
its July 7, 1993 decision, the Tenth Circuit of the U.S. Court of 
Appeals remanded the EIS back to the FAA and BLM for further 
environmental analysis of aircraft noise impacts to the recreational 
use of public lands and the BLM's plan amendment and transfer of land.
    On November 17, 2008 the BLM issued the Monticello Field Office 
Record of Decision and Approved Resource Management Plan. The document 
provides guidance for the management of Federal lands administered by 
the BLM in San Juan County and a small portion of Grant County in 
southeast Utah and includes provisions for the disposal of the Cal 
Black Memorial Airport property.
    FAA prepared a Draft SEIS and Section 4(f) Evaluation for the 
Replacement Airport at Halls Crossing to address the requirements of 
the U.S. Court of Appeals' findings. The scope of the Draft SEIS and 
Section 4(f) Evaluation included: (1) The measurement of actual 
aircraft noise levels in GCNRA and visitor survey, (2) an updated 
evaluation of existing and future aircraft noise levels; (3) a Section 
4(f) evaluation using the updated noise analysis; and (4) an analysis 
on potential cumulative effects. The Draft SEIS was made available for 
a 45-day public review and comment period on December 12, 2014. The 
comment period included an opportunity to request a public hearing; 
however, no requests for a hearing were received. Comments were 
received by various parties and an errata sheet was prepared to 
identify changes that were made to the Draft SEIS in response to the 
public input. Additionally, Appendix J was prepared to document each 
comment received as well as FAA's response to each comment. These 
additional documents, in combination with the Draft SEIS, constitute 
the Final SEIS for the Replacement Airport at Halls Crossing.
