An amended MOU would renew the State’s participation in the program.

An electronic version of the proposed MOU may be downloaded by accessing the DOT DMS docket, as described above, at https:// www.regulations.gov/. Background Section 326 of Title 23 U.S. Code, creates a program that allows the Secretary of the DOT (Secretary) to assign, and a State to assume, responsibility for determining whether certain Federal highway projects are included within classes of action that are categorically excluded (CE) from requirements for Environmental Assessments or Environmental Impact Statements pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA), 42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq. In addition, this program allows the assignment of other environmental review requirements applicable to Federal highway projects. The Secretary delegated his authority to FHWA, which acts on behalf of the Secretary with respect to these matters. Through an amended Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), FHWA would renew California’s participation in this program for a third time. The original MOU became effective on June 7, 2007, for an initial term of three (3) years. The first renewal followed on June 7, 2010, and the second renewal followed on June 7, 2013. The proposed third MOU renewal would supersede the second renewed MOU prior to its expiration date on June 7, 2016. Stipulation I(B) of the MOU describes the types of actions for which the State would assume project-level responsibility for determining whether the criteria for a CE are met. The FHWA would assign statewide decision-making responsibility for all activities within the categories listed in 23 CFR 771.117(c) and those listed as examples in 23 CFR 771.117(d), in addition to other CEs identified in associated Appendix A. In addition to the NEPA CE determination responsibilities, the MOU would assign to the State the following FHWA responsibilities for environmental review, consultation, or other related actions required under Federal laws and Executive Orders applicable to CE projects: Air Quality • Clean Air Act, 42 U.S.C. 7401–7671q. Determinations for project-level conformity if required for the project. Noise • Noise Control Act of 1972, 42 U.S.C. 4901–4918 E:\FR\FM\11APN1.SGM 11APN1
