SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Executive Order (E.O.) 13337 delegates to the Secretary of State the President’s authority to receive applications for permits for the construction, connection, operation, or maintenance of facilities for the exportation or importation of petroleum, petroleum products, coal, or other fuels (except for natural gas), at the borders of the United States, and to issue or deny such Presidential permits upon a national interest determination. On August 12, 2016, Borrego submitted an application for a new Presidential permit that would authorize the construction, connection, operation, and maintenance of facilities at the U.S.-Mexico border for the export to Mexico of refined petroleum products (including gasoline, premium gasoline, ultra-low sulfur diesel, and jet fuel). The petroleum products would be transported through the new pipeline between a new terminal in Laredo, Texas, and the existing Nuevo Laredo Terminal in Tamaulipas, Mexico. The Department prepared the Final EA consistent with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969, as amended (42 U.S.C. Section 4321, et seq.), the regulations of the Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) (40 CFR parts 1500–1508), and the Department’s implementing regulations (22 CFR part 161). The Draft EA and Preliminary FONSI were available for a 30-day public review that ended on November 17, 2017. The Department has determined the proposed action would not result in significant impacts on the environment and therefore the preparation of an Environmental Impact Statement is not required. The FONSI is not a decision on the Presidential permit application. In accordance with E.O. 13337, the Secretary of State or his delegate will make a determination as to whether issuance of a Presidential permit for Borrego Crossing Pipeline, LLC (Borrego), a subsidiary of Howard Midstream Energy Partners, LLC, proposed cross-border pipeline facilities project would serve the national interest. Robert Wing, Acting Director, Office of Environmental Quality and Transboundary Issues, Department of State. [FR Doc. 2018–00472 Filed 1–11–18; 8:45 am] 17:47 Jan 11, 2018 [Docket No. FD 36163] Elkhart & Western Railroad Co.— Acquisition and Operation Exemption—Line of CSX Transportation, Inc. Between Monon and Monticello, in White County, Ind. Elkhart & Western Railroad Co. (EWR), a Class III rail carrier, has filed a verified notice of exemption under 49 CFR 1150.41 to acquire and operate 9.58 miles of rail line owned by CSX Transportation, Inc. (CSXT) between Monon, Ind., (Milepost 0QA–88.42) and Monticello, Ind., (Milepost 0QA–98.00) in White County, Ind. (the Line). EWR states that it has reached agreement in principle with CSXT, the current owner and operator of the Line, providing for EWR to acquire, operate, maintain, and perform all common carrier service on the Line. EWR states that it will interchange with CSXT at Monon, Ind. EWR also states that the proposed acquisition and operation of the Line does not involve a provision or agreement that would limit future interchange with a third-party connecting carrier. EWR certifies that the proposed transaction will not result in EWR becoming a Class II or Class I rail carrier and that the projected annual revenue of EWR will not exceed $5 million. The transaction may be consummated on or after January 27, 2018, the effective date of the exemption (30 days after the verified notice was filed). If the verified notice contains false or misleading information, the exemption is void ab initio. Petitions to revoke the exemption under 49 U.S.C. 10502(d) may be filed at any time. The filing of a petition to revoke will not automatically stay the effectiveness of the exemption. Petitions for stay must be filed no later than January 19, 2018 (at least seven days before the exemption becomes effective). An original and 10 copies of all pleadings, referring to Docket No. 36163, must be filed with the Surface Transportation Board, 395 E Street SW, Washington, DC 20423–0001. In addition, one copy of each pleading must be served on Daniel A. LaKemper, Elkhart & Western Railroad Co., 1318 S. Johanson Road, Peoria, IL 61607. According to EWR, this action is categorically excluded from environmental review under 49 CFR 1105.6(c) and from historic reporting requirements under 49 CFR 105.8(b).

ACTION: Notice of Monetary Penalties 2018. AGENCY: The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) is providing notice of its maximum civil money SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00053 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 1657 penalties as adjusted for inflation. The inflation adjustments are required to implement the Federal Civil Penalties Inflation Adjustment Act of 1990, as amended by the Federal Civil Penalties Inflation Adjustment Act Improvements Act of 2015. DATES: The adjusted maximum amount of civil money penalties in this notice are applicable to penalties assessed on or after January 12, 2018, for conduct occurring on or after November 2, 2015. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Kevin Korzeniewski, Counsel, Legislative and Regulatory Activities Division, (202) 649–5490, or, for persons who are deaf or hearing impaired, TTY, (202) 649–5597, Office of the Comptroller of the Currency. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This notice announces changes to the maximum amount of each civil money penalty (CMP) within the OCC’s jurisdiction to administer to account for inflation pursuant to the Federal Civil Penalties Inflation Adjustment Act of 1990 (the 1990 Adjustment Act),1 as amended by the Federal Civil Penalties Inflation Adjustment Act Improvements Act of 2015 (the 2015 Adjustment Act).2 Under the 1990 Adjustment Act, as amended, federal agencies must make annual adjustments to the maximum amount of each CMP the agency administers. The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) is required to issue guidance to federal agencies no later than December 15 of each year providing an inflation adjustment multiplier (i.e. the inflation adjustment factor agencies must use) applicable to CMPs assessed in the following year. The agencies are required to publish their CMPs, adjusted pursuant to the multiplier provided by OMB, by January 15 of the applicable year. To the extent an agency has codified a CMP amount in its regulations, the agency would need to update that amount by regulation. However, if an agency has codified the formula for making the CMP adjustments, then subsequent adjustments can be made solely by notice.3 Contemporaneous with this notice, the OCC also submitted for publication a final regulation to remove the now-outdated CMP amounts 1 Public Law 101–410, Oct. 5, 1990, 104 Stat. 890, codified at 28 U.S.C. 2461 note. 2 Public Law 114–74, Title VII, section 701(b), Nov. 2, 2015, 129 Stat. 599, codified at 28 U.S.C. 2461 note. 3 See OMB Memorandum M–18–03, ‘‘Implementation of the 2018 annual adjustment pursuant to the Federal Civil Penalties Inflation Adjustment Act Improvements Act of 2015,’’ at 4, which permits agencies that have codified the formula to adjust CMPs for inflation to update the penalties through a notice rather than a regulation.
