To restrict OSV use on approximately 2,015 acres, limiting OHV travel to existing routes, to improve consistency with national guidelines for bald eagle management. Within these restricted Areas, existing route segments totaling approximately 7 miles would be designated for OSV use. 6. To enact new OSV prohibitions on approximately 5,940 acres in a portion of the Lakes Basin Management Area and a portion of the Black Gulch/Clear Creek Area. 7. To designate 21 locations where OSVs would be allowed to cross the Pacific Crest Trail. These actions would begin immediately upon the issuance of the record of decision, which is expected in December of 2017. The Forest Service would produce an OSV use map (OSVUM) that would look like the existing motor vehicle use map (MVUM) for the Plumas National Forest. Such a map would allow OSV enthusiasts to identify the routes and Areas where OSV use would be allowed on the Plumas National Forest. Responsible Official The Plumas National Forest Supervisor will issue the decision. asabaliauskas on DSK5VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Nature of Decision To Be Made This decision will designate OSV use on National Forest System roads, on National Forest System trails, and in Areas on National Forest System lands on the Plumas National Forest where snowfall is adequate for that use to occur. It will also identify the snow trails where grooming for OSV use would occur. The decision would only apply to the use of over-snow vehicles as defined in the Forest Service’s Travel Management Regulations (36 CFR 212.1). The Forest Supervisor will consider all reasonable alternatives and decide whether to continue current management of OSV uses on the Plumas National Forest, implement the proposed action, or select an alternative for the management of OSV uses. Scoping Process This notice of intent initiates the scoping process, which guides the development of the environmental impact statement. It is important that reviewers provide their comments at such times and in such manner that they are useful to the agency’s preparation of the environmental impact statement. Written comments should be within the scope of the proposed action, have a direct relationship to the proposed VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:54 Sep 28, 2015 Jkt 235001 action, and must include supporting reasons for the responsible official to consider. Therefore, comments should be provided prior to the close of the comment period and should clearly articulate the reviewer’s concerns and contentions. The preferred format for attachments to electronically submitted comments would be as an MS Word document. Attachments in portable document format (pdf) are not preferred, but are acceptable. Comments received in response to this solicitation, including names and addresses of those who comment, will be part of the public record for this proposed action. Comments submitted anonymously will be accepted and considered, however. The Plumas National Forest OverSnow Vehicle (OSV) Use Designation is an activity implementing a land management plan. It is not an activity authorized under the Healthy Forests Restoration Act of 2003 (Pub. L. 108– 148). Therefore, this activity is subject to pre-decisional administrative review consistent with the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2012 (Pub. L. 112–74) as implemented by subparts A and B of 36 CFR part 218. Dated: September 23, 2015. Daniel A. Lovato, Acting Forest Supervisor.

The ASF is an option for grantees for the establishment or reorganization of zones and can permit significantly greater flexibility in the designation of new subzones or ‘‘usage-driven’’ FTZ sites for operators/ users located within a grantee’s ‘‘service area’’ in the context of the FTZ Board’s standard 2,000-acre activation limit for a zone. The application was submitted pursuant to the Foreign-Trade Zones Act, as amended (19 U.S.C. 81a–81u), and the regulations of the Board (15 CFR part 400). It was formally docketed on September 22, 2015. PO 00000 Frm 00003 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 FTZ 149 was approved by the FTZ Board on June 28, 1988 (Board Order 385, 53 FR 26096, 7/11/1988), and reorganized under the alternative site framework on August 29, 2012 (Board Order 1853, 77 FR 54891, 9/6/2012). The zone currently has a service area that includes Brazoria and Fort Bend Counties, Texas. The zone includes the following magnet sites: Site 1 (280 acres)—Port Freeport Primary Facility, 1001 Navigation Boulevard, Freeport; Site 3 (1,063.10 acres, sunset 8/31/2017)—Port Freeport (Parcels 13, 14 & 19)—State Highway 288, Freeport; and, Site 10 (8 acres, sunset 8/31/2017)—Alvin Santa Fe Industrial Park, 200 Avenue I, Alvin. The applicant is requesting authority to expand existing Site 1 to include an additional 40 acres at the Port Freeport Primary Facility (new total—320 acres). In accordance with the FTZ Board’s regulations, Camille Evans of the FTZ Staff is designated examiner to evaluate and analyze the facts and information presented in the application and case record and to report findings and recommendations to the FTZ Board. Public comment is invited from interested parties. Submissions shall be addressed to the FTZ Board’s Executive Secretary at the address below. The closing period for their receipt is November 30, 2015. Rebuttal comments in response to material submitted during the foregoing period may be submitted during the subsequent 15-day period to December 14, 2015.

We know of no instruments of equivalent scientific value to the foreign instruments described below, for such purposes as this is intended to be used, that was being manufactured in the United States at the time of order. Reasons: The instrument will be used to enhance the fundamental understanding of propellant combustion so that safer and higher performance solid propellants can be designed and developed. The instrument is to be used for the measurement of flame radical species in propellant flames in real-time, using high-frame-rate (10–40kHz) imaging of the flame radical OH, produced in the reaction zone. The OH distribution is used to determine the burning mode for the propellant, and the laser system will give the capability to obtain high-framerate images of other propellants. The primary technique is high-frame-rate planar laser-induced fluorescence (PLIF) imaging. The UV laser from a Credo dye laser, pumped by the Edgewave DPSS laser, is formed into a focused sheet using a combination of spherical and cylindrical lenses. The frequency of the UV beam is then tuned to a resonance transition for the OH radical and the OH radical is pumped from the ground state to an excited electronic state by absorbing a photon from the laser sheet. Once in the excited state, the OH radical can decay by emitting a photon (fluorescence). The fluorescence light is imaged using a high-frame-rate intensified CMOS camera to produce an image of the OH distribution in the laser sheet, providing both time-and spaceresolved information on the laser process. No domestic instruments have the required power, rep rate, and pulse length on the order of 10 nanoseconds. Gregory W. Campbell, Director, Subsidies Enforcement Office, Enforcement and Compliance.

fundamental understanding of propellant combustion so that safer and 
higher performance solid propellants can be designed and developed. The 
instrument is to be used for the measurement of flame radical species 
in propellant flames in real-time, using high-frame-rate (10-40kHz) 
imaging of the flame radical OH, produced in the reaction zone. The OH 
distribution is used to determine the burning mode for the propellant, 
and the laser system will give the capability to obtain high-frame-rate 
images of other propellants. The primary technique is high-frame-rate 
planar laser-induced fluorescence (PLIF) imaging. The UV laser from a 
Credo dye laser, pumped by the Edgewave DPSS laser, is formed into a 
focused sheet using a combination of spherical and cylindrical lenses. 
The frequency of the UV beam is then tuned to a resonance transition 
for the OH radical and the OH radical is pumped from the ground state 
to an excited electronic state by absorbing a photon from the laser 
sheet. Once in the excited state, the OH radical can decay by emitting 
a photon (fluorescence). The fluorescence light is imaged using a high-
frame-rate intensified CMOS camera to produce an image of the OH 
distribution in the laser sheet, providing both time-and space-resolved 
information on the laser process. No domestic instruments have the 
required power, rep rate, and pulse length on the order of 10 
nanoseconds.
