Withdrawal of notice of intent to prepare an EIR/EIS. AGENCY: ACTION: On October 2, 2015 (Federal Register Vol. 80, No. 191, page 59728), the San Bernardino National Forest (Forest Service) gave notice that, together with the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC), the Forest Service intended to prepare a joint Environmental Impact Report and Environmental Impact Statement (EIR/ EIS) for the Southern California Gas Company (SoCalGas) and San Diego Gas and Electric (SDG&E) proposed NorthSouth Project. The joint EIR/EIS would have met the requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). The CPUC denied the application on July 14, 2016 based on a lack of need for the proposed pipeline. SoCalGas withdrew their federal application on August 8, 2016 as a result of the CPUC action. Therefore, further preparation of an EIR/ EIS is not necessary. The notice of intent is withdrawn and the NEPA process is hereby terminated.

The notification conforming to the requirements of the regulations of the FTZ Board (15 CFR 400.22) was received on March 28, 2017. MSD already has authority to produce certain pharmaceutical products within Subzone 7G. The current request would add a finished pharmaceutical product and a foreign status material/component to the scope of authority. Pursuant to 15 CFR 400.14(b), FTZ activity would be limited to the specific foreign-status materials and components and specific finished products described in the submitted notification (as described below) and subsequently authorized by the FTZ Board. Production under FTZ procedures could exempt MSD from customs duty payments on the foreign-status components used in export production. On its domestic sales, MSD would be able to choose the duty rates during customs entry procedures that apply to anacetrapib pharmaceutical tablets for treatment of cardiovascular disease (duty free) for the foreign-status material/component noted below. Customs duties also could possibly be deferred or reduced on foreign-status production equipment. The component/material sourced from abroad is anacetrapib (duty rate 6.5%).

AGENCY: Forest Service, USDA.

ACTION: Withdrawal of notice of intent to prepare an EIR/EIS.

SUMMARY: On October 2, 2015 (Federal Register Vol. 80, No. 191, page 
59728), the San Bernardino National Forest (Forest Service) gave notice 
that, together with the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC), 
the Forest Service intended to prepare a joint Environmental Impact 
Report and Environmental Impact Statement (EIR/EIS) for the Southern 
California Gas Company (SoCalGas) and San Diego Gas and Electric 
(SDG&E) proposed North-South Project. The joint EIR/EIS would have met 
the requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and 
the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). The CPUC denied the 
application on July 14, 2016 based on a lack of need for the proposed 
pipeline. SoCalGas withdrew their federal application on August 8, 2016 
as a result of the CPUC action. Therefore, further preparation of an 
EIR/EIS is not necessary. The notice of intent is withdrawn and the 
NEPA process is hereby terminated.
