Document Number: 2011-9749
Type: Rule
Date: 2011-04-22
Agency: Department of Defense, Department of the Navy
The Department of the Navy is reinstating an exemption rule that was inadvertently deleted for system of records notice N03834-1, entitled ``Special Intelligence Personnel Access File (April 28, 1999, 64 FR 22840)''. This direct final rule makes nonsubstantive changes to the Department of the Navy Privacy Program rules.

This will improve the efficiency and effectiveness of DoD's program by preserving the exempt status of the records when the purposes underlying the exemption are valid and necessary to protect the contents of the records. This rule is being published as a direct final rule as the Department of Defense does not expect to receive any adverse comments, and so a proposed rule is unnecessary.

A PEA evaluates a major action on a broad, programmatic basis. Thus, site-specific NEPA analysis may be tiered off this document as appropriate. Dates and Addresses: The public comment period begins upon publication of a Notice of Availability (NOA) for the Draft PEA in the Federal Register. The comment period will last for 30 days thereafter. The Draft PEA is available for electronic viewing at http:// marines.mil/unit/marforres/MFRHQ/FACILITIES/FACILITIES.aspx, or by sending a request to Alain Flexer, USMC Marine Forces Reserves (MARFORRES), by telephone 504-678-8489, by fax 504-678-6823, by e-mail to alain.flexer@usmc.mil or by writing to: MARFORRES, Facilities, Attn: Alain Flexer, 4400 Dauphine Street, New Orleans, Louisiana 70146-5400. Comments: All comments, written or submitted via the internet, are treated equally, become part of the public record on the Draft PEA, and will be considered in the Final PEA. During the 30-day comment period, all written comments should be mailed to MARFORRES, Facilities, Attn: Alain Flexer, 4400 Dauphine Street, New Orleans, LA 70146-5400.

Notice of Intent To Prepare an Environmental Impact Statement for U.S. Navy F-35C West Coast Homebasing and To Announce Public Scoping Meetings
Document Number: 2011-1964

Agency: Department of Defense, Department of the Navy
Pursuant to Section 102(2)(c) of the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, as implemented by the Council on Environmental Quality regulations (40 Code of Federal Regulations [CFR] parts 1500- 1508), the Department of the Navy (Navy) announces its intent to prepare an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) to identify and evaluate the potential environmental consequences associated with providing facilities and functions to homebase the F-35C Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) aircraft on the West Coast of the United States. Under this proposal, a total of seven active-duty F/A-18C Hornet aircraft squadrons and one fleet replacement squadron (FRS) will progressively transition from F/A-18C Hornet aircraft to the more advanced F-35C JSF beginning in 2015. This transition will occur as a one-for-one replacement. The aging FA-18C Hornet aircraft are expected to be replaced with F-35C aircraft by 2025. The Navy will evaluate two basing options (plus a no action alternative) to efficiently and economically transition the F-35C aircraft into the fleet. This basing action is consistent with past Navy strike-fighter homebasing actions. Dates and Addresses: Public scoping meetings are scheduled to receive oral and/or written comments on environmental concerns that should be addressed in the EIS, as follows: 1. Tuesday, February 15, 2011, at the Southwest High School, 2001 Ocotillo Drive, El Centro, CA 92243 (located in Imperial County, California). 2. Thursday, February 17, 2011, at Lemoore Senior Center, 789 South Lemoore Avenue (18th Avenue), Lemoore, CA (located in Kings County, California). Each meeting will occur from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. The meetings will be an open house format with informational displays and materials available for public review. The public will have an opportunity to submit written comments on environmental concerns that should be addressed in the U.S. Navy F-35C West Coast Homebasing EIS. Navy staff will be present at these open houses to answer questions.
