This EIS is conducted by the FAA as the Federal lead agency responsible for ensuring that airport development projects, such as those proposed by the Friedman Memorial Airport Authority (FMAA), are in compliance with environmental regulations.

The FAA announced the suspension of the Friedman Memorial Airport Authority on August 22, 2011. Based on the results of on-going analyses the FAA has decided to suspend any further work on the DEIS. Please refer to the Letter of Suspension and Q&A documents below for more information.
