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 ADDRESSES: PO 00000 Frm 00005 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 29825 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 NPSBN is intended to enhance the ability of the public safety community to perform more reliably, effectively, and safely; increase situational awareness during an emergency; and improve the ability of the public safety community to effectively engage in those critical activities. The National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (42 U.S.C. 4321–4347) (‘‘NEPA’’) requires federal agencies to 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 are divided into the East, Central, West, South, and NonContiguous Regions. The NonContiguous Region consists of Alaska, Hawaii, American Samoa, Guam, the Northern Mariana Islands, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

Notice of Availability of a Final Programmatic Environmental 
Impact Statement for the Non-Contiguous Region of the Nationwide Public 
Safety Broadband Network

AGENCY: First Responder Network Authority, National Telecommunications 
and Information Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce.

ACTION: Notice of availability of a final programmatic environmental 
impact statement.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The First Responder Network Authority (``FirstNet'') announces 
the availability of the Final Programmatic Environmental Impact 
Statement for the Non-Contiguous Region (``Final PEIS''). The Final 
PEIS evaluates the potential environmental impacts of the proposed 
nationwide public safety broadband network in the Non-Contiguous Region 
(Alaska, Hawaii, American Samoa, Guam, the Northern Mariana Islands, 
Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands).

ADDRESSES: The Final PEIS is available for download from 
www.regulations.gov FIRSTNET-FPEIS-2017-0001. A CD of this document is 
also available for viewing at public libraries (see Chapter 16 of the 
Final PEIS for the complete distribution list).

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: For more information on the Final 
PEIS, contact Amanda Goebel Pereira, NEPA Coordinator, First Responder 
Network Authority, National Telecommunications and Information 
Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 12201 Sunrise Valley 
Drive, M/S 243, Reston, VA 20192.

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 
NPSBN is intended to enhance the ability of the public safety community 
to perform more reliably, effectively, and safely; increase situational 
awareness during an emergency; and improve the ability of the public 
safety community to effectively engage in those critical activities.
    The National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (42 U.S.C. 4321-4347) 
(``NEPA'') requires federal agencies to 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 are divided into the 
East, Central, West, South, and Non-Contiguous Regions. The Non-
Contiguous Region consists of Alaska, Hawaii, American Samoa, Guam, the 
Northern Mariana Islands, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The 
Final PEIS analyzes potential impacts of the deployment and operation 
of the NPSBN on the natural and human environment in the Non-Contiguous

Region, in accordance with FirstNet's responsibilities under NEPA.
    Now that this PEIS has been completed and once a Record of Decision 
(ROD) has been 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 
whether it instead warrants a Categorical Exclusion, an Environmental 
Assessment, or an Environmental Impact Statement.
