ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: This notice provides information regarding FHWA’s finding that it is appropriate to grant a Buy America waiver to the Inter-Island Ferry Authority (IFA) of Alaska for procurement of foreign iron and steel components for refurbishment of two ferry vessels, specifically including (i) two sets of reduction gear replacement parts, one for the M/V Stikine ferry and the other for the M/V Prince of Wales ferry; and (ii) one set of pitch control units for the M/V Prince of Wales ferry.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: Electronic Access An electronic copy of this document may be downloaded from the Federal Register’s home page at: http:// www.archives.gov and the Government Publishing Office’s database at: http:// www.access.gpo.gov/nara. Background The FHWA’s Buy America regulation, 23 CFR 635.410, requires a domestic manufacturing process for any steel or iron products (including protective coatings) that are permanently incorporated in a Federal-aid construction project. The regulation also provides for a waiver of the Buy America requirements when the application would be inconsistent with the public interest or when satisfactory PO 00000 Frm 00081 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 quality domestic steel and iron products are not produced in the United States in sufficient and reasonably available quantities. This notice provides information regarding FHWA’s finding that it is appropriate to grant IFA a Buy America waiver for procurement of nondomestic iron and steel components for refurbishment of two ferry vessels, specifically including (i) two sets of reduction gear replacement parts, one for the M/V Stikine ferry and the other for the M/V Prince of Wales ferry; and (ii) one set of pitch control units for the M/V Prince of Wales ferry. The reduction gear replacement units and pitch control units are not available to be produced using 100 percent domestic steel or iron. Background on the IFA System: The IFA system provides the only ferry service to Prince of Wales (POW) Island, which is the fourth-largest island in the United States with a landmass of 2,577 square miles. It has a population of approximately 6,000. The POW Island is located west of the City of Ketchikan, but is not accessible by road or bridge. Because of the lack of road access, residents and visitors rely heavily on the IFA ferries to reach POW Island or return to the mainland. The IFA ferries make daily runs between Ketchikan and Hollis, a census-designated place on POW Island. The ferries include passenger and vehicle decks. They carry more than 50,000 passengers and 12,000 vehicles annually. The IFA provides critical ferry service to businesses and individuals on POW Island. For example, island residents rely on ferry service for access to health care, employment, and markets in Ketchikan including for groceries, goods, and services. In addition, many businesses on POW Island and in Ketchikan rely on this daily transportation connection to transport goods and customers. Finally, passengers brought to the island from the mainland support the island’s tourism industry. Considering the lack of access to POW Island by road or bridge, the IFA system is the only reliable and affordable mode of transportation for many users. The IFA system is critical to users in a way that not all Federal-aid-supported ferry systems are: It is the only available route for owner-occupied vehicles to access the island. Although POW Island may also be accessed by more expensive air travel or much slower cargo barges, the IFA system provides a reliable, middle alternative that is essential to many of its users (including low-income users who cannot afford alternative modes). It also provides transportation security on E:\FR\FM\06APN1.SGM 06APN1
