Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 122 / Wednesday, June 24, 2020 / Notices of the impact categories assessed in this FONSI/ROD. Incremental effects from implementation of the FAA’s Proposed Action, when combined with other actions, would result in a less than significant cumulative impact to the impact categories assessed in this FONSI/ROD. Based on its independent review of the FAA’s Proposed Action, the FAA has determined there would be no significant cumulative impacts as a result of the establishment of the FAA’s Proposed Action. 7.0 Public Involvement NEPA As part of the NEPA process, the Draft EA was provided for public review from February 25–March 11, 2020, and one comment was received from the Bureau of Reclamation indicating an incorrect date of the Free Use Permit. The date has since been corrected in the EA. The EA was finalized in March 2020, and the WYARNG signed its FONSI on March 16, 2020. The FONSI is the WYARNG’s decision to implement the preferred alternative identified in the EA as the Proposed Action. 8.0 Decisions and Orders The WYARNG has requested airspace changes in the form of the Proposed Action; namely, to establish the proposed CFAs. jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with NOTICES Adoption In accordance with FAA Order 1050.1F and CEQ regulation 40 CFR 1506.3, the FAA has conducted an independent review and evaluation of the WYARNG’s EA for the proposed CFAs. Based on its independent review, the FAA has determined that the sections of the EA pertaining to CFAs, and its supporting documentation, as incorporated by reference, adequately assess and disclose the environmental impacts of the FAA’s Proposed Action and that the adoption of the EA by the FAA is authorized under 40 CFR 1506.3 and FAA Order 1050.1F, paragraph 8–2. Accordingly, the FAA adopts the sections of the EA pertaining to the CFAs, appendices, and all information identified therein, incorporated by reference, and made publicly available. Decision and Approval After careful and thorough consideration of the adopted EA and the facts contained herein, the undersigned finds that the FAA’s Proposed Action is consistent with existing national environmental policies and objectives as set forth in Section 101 of NEPA and other applicable environmental requirements, and will not significantly VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:20 Jun 23, 2020 Jkt 250001 affect the quality of the human environment or otherwise include any condition requiring consultation pursuant to Section 102(2)(C) of NEPA. Therefore, an environmental impact statement will not be prepared. The undersigned has carefully considered the FAA’s statutory mandate under 49 U.S.C. 40103 to ensure the safe and efficient use of the NAS and the other aeronautical goals and objectives discussed in the EA. The undersigned finds that the FAA’s Proposed Action provides the best airspace combination for meeting the needs stipulated in the EA and that all practicable means to avoid or minimize environmental harm from that alternative have been adopted. Accordingly, under the authority delegated to the undersigned by the Administrator of the FAA, the undersigned approves and authorizes all necessary Agency action to establish the CFAs, as described in the FAA’s Proposed Action. This decision signifies that applicable federal environmental requirements relating to the Proposed Action have been met. Shawn M. Kozica, Manager, Operations Support Group, Western Service Center, AJV–W2.
