83 232 Monday, December 3, 2018 Rules and Regulations CONSUMER PRODUCT SAFETY COMMISSION 16 CFR Part 1210 Safety Standard for Cigarette Lighters; Adjusted Customs Value for Cigarette Lighters AGENCY:

Consumer Product Safety Commission.

ACTION:

Final rule.

SUMMARY:

The Commission's safety standard for disposable and novelty lighters includes specified requirements for child resistance. The standard defines “disposable lighters,” in part, as refillable lighters that use butane or similar fuels that have a Customs Value or ex-factory price below a threshold value (initially set at $2.00 in 1993). The standard provides that the initial $2.00 value adjusts every 5 years for inflation. This document revises the cigarette lighter standard to adjust the import value to $2.75.

DATES:

The rule is effective December 3, 2018.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

A. Background

In 1993, the Commission issued a standard requiring disposable and novelty lighters to meet certain requirements for child resistance. The standard, as originally written, defines “disposable lighters” as those that are either: (1) Non-refillable, or (2) use butane or similar fuels and have “a Customs Valuation or ex-factory price under $2.00, as adjusted every 5 years, to the nearest $0.25, in accordance with the percentage changes in the monthly Wholesale Price Index from June 1993.” 1 58 FR 37584 (July 12, 1993).

1 The name of the Wholesale Price Index has changed to the Producer Price Index (PPI). The specific PPI that includes cigarette lighters is the PPI for “Miscellaneous Fabricated Products.”

The standard adjusts the $2.00 threshold in accordance with inflation, with the adjustment to be rounded to the nearest 25 cents. Adjustment did not occur in 1998 because the change in the PPI since June 1993 was not sufficient to warrant an adjustment. Adjustment did occur in 2003 (to $2.25). Accordingly, the Commission revised the cigarette standard to the adjusted amount. 69 FR 19763 (April 14, 2004). At that time, the reference to the Wholesale Price Index was also revised to refer instead to the Producer Price Index (PPI). No adjustment occurred in 2008. An adjustment occurred in 2013 (to $2.50) and the Commission revised the cigarette standard to reflect the adjusted amount. 78 FR 52679 (August 26, 2013).

CPSC staff has calculated the PPI for Miscellaneous Fabricated Products to have increased by approximately 36 percent from June 1993 to June 2018. Under 16 CFR 1210.2(b)(2)(ii), this increase in the PPI merits an adjustment in the Customs Value or ex-factory price to $2.75 as the threshold for determining whether refillable lighters are within the scope of the cigarette lighter standard. The increase in the PPI (from 124.7 in June 1993 to 169.5 in June 2018) of approximately 36 percent yielded an adjustment to $2.72 per lighter, which rounds to $2.75. Thus, refillable lighters with a Customs Value or ex-factory price under $2.75 are now subject to the standard.

As the cigarette lighter standard is written, the Customs Value or ex-factory price adjusts automatically based on the PPI, and no change in the language of the rule is required to implement this change. However, we are revising the standard so that the CFR will state the properly adjusted $2.75 [c]ustoms [v]alue, and the public will have notice of the adjustment.

B. The Administrative Procedures Act

Section 553(b)(3)(B) of the Administrative Procedure Act (APA) authorizes an agency to dispense with notice and comment procedures when the agency, for good cause, finds that those procedures are “impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to the public interest.” This amendment informs the public of an adjustment to the cigarette lighter regulatory standard that has occurred automatically according to the terms of the cigarette lighter regulation. Because the adjustment occurs by terms of the regulation, the Commission could not alter the adjustment based on any public comments the Commission received. Accordingly, the Commission finds that notice and comment are unnecessary.

The APA also authorizes an agency, “for good cause found and published with the rule,” to dispense with the otherwise applicable requirement that a rule be published in the Federal Register at least 30 days before its effective date. 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3). The Commission hereby finds that a 30-day delay of the effective date is unnecessary because this amendment informs the public of an adjustment that already has occurred in accordance with the existing regulatory requirements of the cigarette lighter standard.

The adjusted figure, based on the change in that Index since June 1993, is $2.75.

1. In this Final Rule, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (Commission) amends its regulations at 18 CFR 284.12 to incorporate by reference, with certain enumerated exceptions, the latest version (Version 3.1) of business practice standards applicable to interstate natural gas pipelines adopted by the Wholesale Gas Quadrant (WGQ) of the North American Energy Standards Board (NAESB) in place of the currently incorporated version (Version 3.0) of those business practice standards. Under this Final Rule, interstate natural gas pipelines are required to file compliance filings with the Commission by April 1, 2019 and are required to comply with the standards incorporated by reference in this rule on and after August 1, 2019.

2. The implementation of these standards and regulations will promote additional efficiency and reliability of the natural gas industries' operations thereby helping the Commission to carry out its responsibilities under the Natural Gas Act (NGA).1

1 15 U.S.C. 717 (2012).

3. The NAESB WGQ Version 3.1 package of standards contains a number of revisions to the NAESB Version 3.0 package of standards. As explained further below, NAESB adopted two substantive revisions to its Nominations Related Standards, one to establish a standard rounding process for elapsed-prorated-scheduled quantity calculations and a second to revise the specifications for the information to be included in a nomination request.

4. NAESB also adopted three minor revisions to the WGQ Electronic Delivery Mechanism (EDM) Related Standards. First, it has increased the allowable field length in ASCII Comma Separated Value Files to 3000 characters. Second, NAESB adopted new Standard 4.3.106 to allow checkboxes and radio buttons in the Transmission Service Providers' (TSP) Electronic Bulletin Boards (EBB). Third, NAESB modified its standards to update the operating systems and web browsers that entities should support on behalf of users. Additionally, clarifying language was added to the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL)/Transport Layer Security (TLS) protocols.

5. Other changes adopted by NAESB included changes to the NAESB WGQ data sets and other technical implementation documentation as well as revisions to the Flowing Gas Related data sets and technical implementation. In addition, NAESB revised the Imbalance Trade data set and revised two Sender's Option data elements. NAESB also adopted revisions to the Capacity Release Related data sets and technical implementation and revised Standard 6.3.1 (i.e., the NAESB Base Contract for Sale and Purchase of Natural Gas) to add language directing users to NAESB's copyright disclaimer posted on the NAESB website. Identical language was added to three additional NAESB WGQ Contracts.

6. Lastly, NAESB adopted modifications to add a self-identification provision that assists end users in determining whether counterparties are commercial market participants as defined by the United States Commodity Futures Trading Commission.

I. Background

7. Since 1996, the Commission has adopted regulations to standardize the business practices and communication methodologies of interstate natural gas pipelines to create a more integrated and efficient pipeline grid. These regulations have been promulgated in the Order No. 587 series of orders,2 wherein the Commission has incorporated by reference standards for interstate natural gas pipeline business practices and electronic communications that were developed and adopted by NAESB's WGQ. Upon incorporation by reference, this version of these standards will become part of the Commission's regulations and compliance by interstate natural gas pipelines will become mandatory and will replace the earlier version of these standards that the Commission previously incorporated by reference in 2015.3

2 This series of orders began with the Commission's issuance of Standards for Business Practices of Interstate Natural Gas Pipelines, Order No. 587, FERC Stats. & Regs. ¶ 31,038 (1996) (cross-referenced at 76 FERC ¶ 61,042).

3Standards for Business Practices of Interstate Natural Gas Pipelines, Order No. 587-W, FERC Stats. & Regs. ¶ 31,373 (2015) (Order No. 587-W) (cross-referenced at 153 FERC ¶ 61,061).

8. On September 29, 2017, NAESB filed a report informing the Commission that it had adopted and ratified WGQ Version 3.1 of its business practice standards applicable to natural gas pipelines. The NAESB report identifies all the changes made to the Version 3.0 Standards and summarizes the deliberations that led to the changes. It also identifies changes to the existing standards that were considered but not adopted due to a lack of consensus or other reasons.

9. On August 21, 2018, the Commission issued a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking proposing to amend its regulations to incorporate by reference, with certain enumerated exceptions, the NAESB WGQ Version 3.1 business practice standards (referenced above) applicable to natural gas pipelines.4

4Standards for Business Practices of Interstate Natural Gas Pipelines, Notice of Proposed Rulemaking, 83 FR 44521 (Aug. 31, 2018), FERC Stats. & Regs. ¶ 32,728 (2018) (Version 3.1 NOPR).

10. In response to the Version 3.1 NOPR, Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) and the Interstate Natural Gas Association of America (INGAA) filed comments. TVA expresses support for the Commission's proposal to incorporate by reference NAESB's WGQ Version 3.1 business practice standards. INGAA also supports the Commission's proposal in the Version 3.1 NOPR, but urges the Commission to ensure that implementation of a Final Rule in this proceeding does not occur prior to April 1, 2019, after the winter heating season. INGAA states that implementation of a Final Rule in this proceeding will require substantial time and effort from both pipelines and their customers to alter business systems, scheduling, and coordination processes and, thus, it would be best to schedule implementation to not occur during the winter heating season.

II. Discussion A. The NAESB WGQ Version 3.1 Business Practice Standards

11. The NAESB WGQ Version 3.1 Business Practice Standards made a number of modifications to the earlier version of those standards that the Commission previously incorporated by reference in 2015 in Order No. 587-W.5 Notable among these modifications 6 were two substantive revisions concerning the Nominations Related Standards, which govern shipper requests to schedule service on natural gas pipelines. One revision adds a new provision, Standard 1.3.82, to establish a standard rounding process (requiring calculations to at least the seventh decimal place) for elapsed-prorated-scheduled quantity 7 calculations to provide for needed numerical uniformity and granularity for users of these NAESB procedures. The other Nominations Related Standards revision was to revise the “Service Requester” element of Standard 1.3.27,8 which specifies some of the information that should be included in a nomination request, from a Mandatory designation to a Business Conditional 9 designation. Thus, instead of forcing a specific upstream or downstream (unthreaded) nomination 10 to be tied to a specific contract (using a specific threaded nomination), upstream nominations may now be distributed among several contracts (using a Pathed Non-Threaded nomination structure), which generally increases flexibility to customers.

5 Order No. 587-W, FERC Stats. & Regs. ¶ 31,373.

6 An abbreviated description of these modifications is provided at PP 3-6 above.

7 Standard 1.2.12 of the Nominations Related Standards defines the elapsed-prorated-scheduled quantity to mean:

That portion of the scheduled quantity that would have theoretically flowed up to the effective time of the intraday nomination being confirmed, based upon a cumulative uniform hourly quantity for each nomination period affected.

8 NAESB also made conforming revisions to the related data sets and documents: Standard 1.4.1 of the Nomination data set, Standard 1.4.5 of the Scheduled Quantity data set, Standard 2.4.4 of the Shipper Imbalance data set, Standard 1.4.2 of the Nomination Quick Response data set, Standard 2.4.1 of the Pre-Determined Allocation document, and Standard 2.4.3 of the Allocation document.

9 Standard 1.2.2 of the Nominations Related Standards provides that a Business Conditional data element is one that is based on current variations in business practice.

10 NAESB's Nomination Data Dictionary, WGQ Version 3.1, Standard 1.4.1, retains from the Version 3.0 standard the field for “Model Type Data” that identifies which of three types of nomination structures is being used. These are: Pathed, Non-Pathed, and Pathed Non-Threaded. Having these three types of model type data allows specificity as to the details of the nomination. A pathed nomination uses one nomination line item to transact business and, therefore, has one transaction type. A non-pathed nomination uses two nomination line items to transact business and, therefore, has two transaction types. A pathed non-threaded nomination uses three nomination line items to transact business and, therefore, has three transaction types.

NAESB also provides the following clarification of these concepts in the description of the technical implementation of business processes included as part of Standard 1.4.1, where NAESB explains that:

[a] “Pathed” nomination is actually a “Pathed Threaded” nomination because (1) the physical path of the pipeline locations and service contract(s) is fully described in the nomination, and (2) the logical thread of a specific supplier entity to a specific market entity at specific pipeline locations for a specific quantity is also fully described. “Non-Pathed” nominations are actually “Non-Pathed Non-Threaded” nominations because (1) physical “location-to-location” paths are not described in the nominations, and (2) no ties of specific supply entities to specific market entities are established. And for “Pathed Non-Threaded” nominations, (1) the physical path of the pipeline locations, service contract(s), and quantity is fully described, and (2) no ties of specific supply entities to specific market entities are established. See NAESB WGQ Version 3.1 Business Practice Standards, Nominations Related Standards, Standard 1.4.1, at 87 (Sep. 29, 2017).

12. NAESB also adopted three minor revisions to the WGQ EDM Related Standards, which establish the framework for the electronic dissemination and communication of information between parties in the North American Wholesale Gas marketplace. First, NAESB revised Standard 4.3.80 to increase the allowable field length in ASCII Comma Separated Value Files to 3000 characters. The revision increases the amount of information that can be conveyed, but reasonably limits it in conformity with commonly used software such as Excel. Second, NAESB adopted new Standard 4.3.106 to allow checkboxes and radio buttons in the TSPs' EBBs to indicate “Yes” and/or “No” responses to data elements, which NAESB states is more convenient than the current drop down list. Third, NAESB revised its standards to update the operating systems and web browsers that entities should support to allow users to take advantage of recent developments in computer technology and use. Additionally, language was added to clarify the SSL/TLS protocols, which encrypt data to hide information from electronic observers on the internet. The revised standard provides guidance on the timing for adoption of a new version of SSL/TLS protocols—new versions of these protocols should be used within 9 months of the version becoming generally available. In addition, the revised standard clarifies that SSL is a colloquial term that encompasses both SSL and TLS.

13. Other changes adopted by NAESB included changes to the NAESB WGQ data sets and other technical implementation documentation, which provide the technical support necessary to use the NAESB standards effectively. One such change was to add a new Business Conditional data element “Agent” and corresponding technical implementation to the Nominations related Standard 1.4.1 and the Scheduled Quantity Standard 1.4.5. Currently, in the data sets, the Service Requester is defined as the Shipper or its Agent; however, language included in the implementation guides states that both the Shipper and Agent will be identified. Thus, this change adds a data element “Agent” to the data sets to allow the Service Requestor to identify both the shipper and its agent if it uses an agent to nominate and schedule on the pipeline.

14. NAESB also adopted revisions to the Flowing Gas Related data sets and technical implementation, which address quantitative issues relating generally to allocation, imbalances, and measurement of flowing gas. Specifically, NAESB added three Business Conditional data elements to the Authorization to Post Imbalances data set (Standard 2.4.9). The addition of the three data elements will allow a Service Requester to authorize specific contracts and quantities of imbalances for specified periods of time to be posted.

15. In addition, NAESB revised the Imbalance Trade data set (Standard 2.4.11) to reinstate language providing the confirming party the ability to reject a trade in the Imbalance Trade data set when an auto-confirm agreement with a confirming party is in place. NAESB states that in its WGQ Version 2.1 publication, before the Imbalance Trading data sets were consolidated, the Imbalance Trade Confirmation contained a Yes/No indicator that the confirming party could use to indicate its acceptance or rejection of the trade. This indicator informed a pipeline whether the confirming party agreed to the terms of the trade that the initiating trader had posted. When the data sets were consolidated, this data element was dropped because it was assumed that if a confirming party did not agree with the posted terms it would not confirm the trade, which was effective only if the pipeline did not have an auto-confirm agreement with that confirming party. Accordingly, to address situations where there are auto-confirm agreements, NAESB has now revised Standard 2.4.11 to add a new Business Conditional data element “Imbalance Trade Response” with an “Accept/Reject” code value. This Accept/Reject indicator informs the pipeline whether the confirming party agrees to the terms of the trade that the initiating trader had posted.

16. NAESB also revised Standard 2.4.6 to add two Sender's Option data elements,11 “Comments” and “Volume-Uncorrected” to the Measured Volume Audit Statement 12 in order to communicate raw data on volumes in addition to the final volumes, which are communicated through the existing data element “Volume Corrected.” Thus, users will now be able to indicate what initial data they received in addition to how that data was ultimately corrected, and to provide comments concerning that data, which relate to what meter was used to measure the data.

11 Nominations Related Standard 1.2.2 provides that Sender's Option means that this element is an option for the sender to send and, if sent, the receiver should store and use the contents of the data element.

12 NAESB's business process and practices overview of the Flowing Gas Related Standards states that the Measured Volume Audit Statement data set is used to report gas measurement information in support of the allocation, imbalance, invoice and audit processes.

17. NAESB also adopted revisions to the Capacity Release Related data sets and technical implementation. Specifically, NAESB revised Standard 5.4.24 to add a new Business Conditional data element, “Waive Bidder Credit Indicator” and corresponding code values to the Offer data set. The additional data element indicates to a Bidder whether the Releasing Shipper will waive, pursuant to the TSP's tariff, the Bidder's creditworthiness pre-qualification.

18. Further, NAESB revised Standard 6.3.1 (i.e., the NAESB Base Contract for Sale and Purchase of Natural Gas) to add language to the disclaimer to provide a copyright notification and direct the reader to the NAESB Copyright Policy and Companies with Access to NAESB Standards under the Copyright Policy posted on the NAESB website. Identical language was added to three additional NAESB WGQ Contracts.

19. Lastly, NAESB adopted modifications to the cover page of Standard 6.3.1 to add a self-identification provision that assists end users in determining whether counterparties are commercial market participants as defined by the United States Commodity Futures Trading Commission.

B. NAESB's Process

20. NAESB used its consensus procedures to develop and approve the Version 3.1 Standards. As the Commission found in Order No. 587, the adoption of consensus standards is appropriate, because the consensus process helps ensure the reasonableness of the standards by requiring that the standards draw support from a broad spectrum of industry participants representing all segments of the industry. Moreover, since the industry itself must conduct business under these standards, the Commission's regulations should reflect those standards that have the widest possible support. In section 12(d) of the National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act of 1995 (NTT&AA),13 Congress affirmatively requires federal agencies to use technical standards developed by voluntary consensus standards organizations, like NAESB, as means to carry out policy objectives or activities determined by the agencies unless an agency determines that the use of such standards would be inconsistent with applicable law or otherwise impractical.

13 Public Law 104-113, 12(d), 110 Stat. 775 (1996).

C. Adoption of Version 3.1 of the Standards

21. In the Version 3.1 NOPR, the Commission proposed to incorporate by reference, in its regulations, Version 3.1 of the NAESB WGQ consensus business practice standards, with the exception of NAESB's standards specifying the terms of optional model contracts and the eTariff-related standards.14 As explained above, all of the commenters supported the Commission's proposal to incorporate by reference the NAESB WGQ Version 3.1 business practice standards as proposed in the Version 3.1 NOPR.15

14 Version 3.1 NOPR, FERC Stats. & Regs. ¶ 32,728 at n.1 & P16.

15 INGAA's suggestions for the implementation dates for the Final Rule are discussed separately in section III below.

22. After a review of the comments filed in response to the Version 3.1 NOPR, the Commission amends Part 284 of its regulations to incorporate by reference the NAESB WGQ Version 3.1 business practice standards, with the exceptions (as explained in the Version 3.1 NOPR) of the optional model contracts and the eTariff-related standards.

D. Required Compliance Filings

23. To implement the standards we are incorporating by reference in this Final Rule, we will require each interstate natural gas pipeline to file a separate tariff record reflecting the changed standards by April 1, 2019, to take effect on August 1, 2019, and the natural gas pipelines will be required to comply with these standards on and after August 1, 2019.16

16 To aid in compliance, promptly after issuance of this Final Rule, the Commission will post a sample tariff record on the Commission's website that may be accessed at http://www.ferc.gov/docs-filing/elibrary.asp. All interstate natural gas pipelines are to file their tariff records in conformance with this sample tariff record.

III. Implementation Schedule

24. As suggested by INGAA, we have selected an implementation schedule for compliance with this Final Rule that delays implementation until after the winter heating period. We also observe that none of the comments took issue with the Commission's explanation of its policies on tariff filings and on waiver requests. Thus, we are not modifying these policies in this Final Rule and stand by the explanation of those policies we made in the Version 3.1 NOPR. The Commission will require interstate natural gas pipelines to comply with the revised NAESB standards that we are incorporating by reference in this Final Rule beginning on August 1, 2019. We are adopting this implementation schedule to give the interstate natural gas pipelines subject to these standards adequate time to implement these changes. In addition, the interstate natural gas pipelines must file tariff records to reflect the changed standards by April 1, 2019.

25. In addition, consistent with the requirements in Order No. 587-W,17 the Commission is including the following compliance filing requirements to increase the transparency of the pipelines' incorporation by reference of the NAESB WGQ Standards so that shippers and the Commission will know which tariff provision(s) implements each standard as well as the status of each standard.

17 Order No. 587-W, FERC Stats. & Regs. ¶31,373 at P 42.

(1) The pipelines must designate a single tariff record under which every NAESB standard currently incorporated by reference by the Commission is listed.18 This section should be a separate tariff record under the Commission's electronic tariff filing requirement and should be filed electronically using the eTariff portal using the Type of Filing Code 580. The Commission will post on its eLibrary website (under Docket No. RM96-1-041) a sample tariff record, to provide filers an illustrative example to aid them in preparing their compliance filings; 19

18See supra n.14.

19Id.

(2) For each standard, each pipeline must specify in the tariff record a list of all the NAESB standards currently incorporated by reference by the Commission:

(a) whether the standard is incorporated by reference;

(b) for those standards not incorporated by reference, the tariff provision that complies with the standard; 20 and

20 For example, pipelines are required to include the full text of the NAESB nomination and capacity release timeline standards (WGQ Standards 1.3.2(i-vi) and 5.3.2) in their tariffs. See, e.g., Standards for Business Practices of Interstate Natural Gas Pipelines, Order No. 587-U, FERC Stats. & Regs. ¶ 31,307, at P 39 & n.42 (2010). Each pipeline's submittal is to identify which tariff provision complies with each of these standards.

(c) a statement identifying any standards for which the pipeline has been granted a waiver, extension of time, or other variance with respect to compliance with the standard.21

21 Shippers can use the Commission's electronic tariff system to locate the tariff record containing the NAESB standards, which will indicate the docket in which any waiver or extension of time was granted.

(3) If the pipeline is requesting a continuation of an existing waiver or extension of time, it must include a table in its transmittal letter that states the standard for which a waiver or extension of time was granted, and the docket number or order citation to the proceeding in which the waiver or extension of time was granted.

IV. Notice of Use of Voluntary Consensus Standards

26. Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Circular A-119 (section 11) (February 10, 1998) provides that federal agencies should publish a request for comment in a NOPR when the agency is seeking to issue or revise a regulation proposing to adopt a voluntary consensus standard or a government-unique standard. In this Final Rule, the Commission is amending its regulations to incorporate by reference voluntary consensus standards developed by NAESB's WGQ. In section 12(d) of NTT&AA, Congress affirmatively requires federal agencies to use technical standards developed by voluntary consensus standards organizations to carry out policy objectives or activities determined by the agencies unless use of such standards would be inconsistent with applicable law or otherwise impractical.22

22 Public Law 104-113, 12(d), 110 Stat. 775 (1996), 15 U.S.C. 272 note (1997).

V. Incorporation by Reference

27. The Office of the Federal Register requires agencies incorporating material by reference in final rules to discuss, in the preamble of the final rule, the ways that the materials it incorporates by reference are reasonably available to interested parties and how interested parties can obtain the materials.23 The regulations also require agencies to summarize, in the preamble of the final rule, the material it incorporates by reference.

23 1 CFR 51.5. See Incorporation by Reference, 79 FR 66267 (Nov. 7, 2014).

28. The NAESB standards being incorporated by reference in this Final Rule consist of seven suites of NAESB WGQ Business Practice Standards that touch on a variety of topics and are designed to streamline the transactional processes for the wholesale gas industry by promoting a more competitive and efficient market. These include the WGQ Additional Business Practice Standards; WGQ Nominations Related Business Practice Standards; WGQ Flowing Gas Related Business Practice Standards; Invoicing Related Business Practice Standards; Quadrant EDM Related Business Practice Standards; Capacity Release Related Business Practice Standards; and internet Electronic Transport Related Business Practice Standards. These can be summarized as follows.

29. The WGQ Additional Business Practice Standards address six areas: Creditworthiness, Storage Information, Gas/Electric Operational Communications, Operational Capacity, Unsubscribed Capacity, and Location Data Download.

• The Creditworthiness related standards describe requirements for the exchange of information, notification, and communication between parties during the creditworthiness evaluation process.

• The Storage Information related standards define the information to be provided to natural gas service requesters related to storage activities and/or balances.

• The Gas/Electric Operational Communications related standards define communication protocols intended to improve coordination between the gas and electric industries in daily operational communications between transportation service providers and gas-fired power plants. The standards include requirements for communicating anticipated power generation fuel for the upcoming day as well as any operating problems that might hinder gas-fired power plants from receiving contractual gas quantities.

• The Operational Capacity related standards define requirements of the transportation service provider related to the reporting and requesting of a transportation service provider's operational capacity, total scheduled quantity, and operationally available capacity.

• The Unsubscribed Capacity related standards define requirements of the transportation service provider related to reporting and requesting a transportation service provider's available unsubscribed capacity.

• The Location Data Download related standards define requirements for the use of codes assigned by the transportation service provider for locations and common codes for parties communicating electronically.

30. The WGQ Nominations Related Business Practice Standards define the process by which a natural gas service requester with a natural gas transportation contract nominates (or requests) service from a pipeline or a transportation service provider for the delivery of natural gas.

31. The WGQ Flowing Gas Related Business Practice Standards define the business processes related to the communication of entitlement rights of flowing gas at a location, of the entitlement rights on a contractual basis, of the management of imbalances, and of the measurement and gas quality information of the actual flow of gas.

32. The Invoicing Related Business Practice Standards define the process for the communication of charges for services rendered (Invoice), communication of details about funds rendered in payment for services rendered (Payment Remittance), and communication of the financial status of a customer's account (Statement of Account).

33. The Quadrant Electronic Delivery Mechanism Related Business Practice Standards define the framework for the electronic dissemination and communication of information between parties in the North American wholesale gas marketplace for Electronic Data Interchange (EDI)/EDM transfers, batch flat file/EDM transfers, informational postings websites, EBB/EDM and interactive flat file/EDM.

34. The Capacity Release Related Business Practice Standards define the business processes for communication of information related to the selling of all or any portion of a transmission service requester's contract rights.

35. The Internet Electronic Transport Related Business Practice Standards define the implementation of various technologies necessary to communicate transactions and other electronic data using standard protocols for electronic commerce over the internet between trading partners.

36. Our regulations provide that copies of the NAESB standards incorporated by reference may be obtained from NAESB, whose offices are located at 801 Travis Street, Suite 1675, Houston, TX 77002, Phone: (713) 356-0060. NAESB's website can be accessed at https://www.naesb.org//.

24 18 CFR 284.12.

37. NAESB is a private, consensus standards developer that develops voluntary wholesale and retail standards related to the energy industry. The procedures utilized by NAESB make its standards reasonably available to those affected by the Commission regulations.25 Participants can join NAESB, for an annual membership cost of $7,000, which entitles them to full participation in NAESB and enables them to obtain these standards at no additional cost.26 Non-members may obtain the Individual Standards Manual or Booklet for each of the seven manuals or booklets by email for $250 per manual or booklet, which in the case of these standards would total $1,750.27 Non-members also may obtain the complete set of Business Practice Standards on USB flash drive for $2,000. NAESB also provides a free electronic read-only version of the standards for a three business day period or, in the case of a regulatory comment period, through the end of the comment period.28 In addition, NAESB considers requests for waivers of the charges on a case-by-case basis based on need.

25 As a private, consensus standards developer, NAESB needs the funds obtained from its membership fees and sales of its Individual Standards Manual or Booklet to finance the organization. The parties affected by these Commission regulations generally are highly sophisticated and have the means to acquire the information they need to effectively participate in Commission proceedings.

VI. Information Collection Statement

38. The collections of information for this Final Rule are being submitted to OMB for review under section 3507(d) of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 29 and OMB's implementing regulations.30 OMB must approve information collection requirements imposed by agency rules. The burden estimates for this Final Rule are for one-time implementation of the information collection requirements of this Final Rule (including tariff filing, documentation of the process and procedures, and IT work), and ongoing burden.

29 44 U.S.C. 3507(d).

30 5 CFR 1320.

39. The Commission solicited comments from the public on the Commission's need for this information, whether the information will have practical utility, the accuracy of the burden estimates, recommendations to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected, and any suggested methods for minimizing respondents' burden, including the use of automated information techniques. No comments were filed raising any objections to the burden estimate presented in the Version 3.1 NOPR. Accordingly, we will use that same burden estimate in this Final Rule.

40. The collections of information related to this Final Rule fall under FERC-545B (Gas Pipeline Rates: Rate Change (Non-Formal)) 31 and FERC-549C (Standards for Business Practices of Interstate Natural Gas Pipelines).32 The following estimates of reporting burden are related only to this Final Rule and include the costs to pipelines to comply with the Commission's directives in this Final Rule. The burden estimates are primarily related to start-up to implement these standards and regulations and will not result in ongoing costs.

31 FERC-545B covers rate change filings made by natural gas pipelines, including tariff changes.

32 FERC-549C covers Standards for Business Practices of Interstate Natural Gas Pipelines.

    The one-time burden (for both the FERC-545B and FERC-549C) will be averaged over three years:

    33 The number of respondents is the number of entities in which a change in burden from the current standards to the proposed exists, not the total number of entities from the current or proposed standards that are applicable.

    34 The estimated hourly cost (salary plus benefits) provided in this section is based on the salary figures for May 2017 posted by the Bureau of Labor Statistics for the Utilities sector (Bureau of Labor Statistics, May 2017 National Industry-Specific Occupational Employment and Wage Estimates (May 2017), http://www.bls.gov/oes/current/naics2_22.htm#13-0000) and scaled to reflect benefits using the relative importance of employer costs in employee compensation from May 2017 (Bureau of Labor Statistics, May 2017 National Industry-Specific Occupational Employment and Wage Estimates (May 2017), https://www.bls.gov/oes/current/naics2_22.htm). The hourly estimates for salary plus benefits are:

    Computer and Information Systems Manager (Occupation Code: 11-3021), $96.51

    Electrical Engineer (Occupation Code: 17-2071), $66.90

    Legal (Occupation Code: 23-0000), $143.68

    The average hourly cost (salary plus benefits), weighting all of these skill sets evenly, is $102.36. The Commission rounds it to $102/hour.

    FERC-545B: 1,650 hours ÷ 3 = 550 hours/year over three years FERC-549C: 3,630 hours ÷ 3 = 1,210 hours/year over three years

    The number of responses is also averaged over three years (for both the FERC-545 and FERC-549C):

    FERC-545B: 165 responses ÷ 3 = 55 responses/year FERC-549C: 165 responses ÷ 3 = 55 responses/year

    The responses and burden for Years 1-3 will total respectively as follows:

    Year 1: 55 responses; 550 hours (FERC-545B); 1,210 hours (FERC-549C) Year 2: 55 responses; 550 hours (FERC-545B); 1,210 hours (FERC-549C) Year 3: 55 responses; 550 hours (FERC-545B); 1,210 hours (FERC-549C)

    41. OMB regulations require OMB to approve certain information collection requirements imposed by agency rule. The Commission is submitting notification of this Final Rule to OMB. These information collections are mandatory requirements.

    Title: FERC-545B,35 Gas Pipeline Rates: Rates Change (Non-Formal); FERC-549C, Standards for Business Practices of Interstate Natural Gas Pipelines.

    35 In the supporting statement for the NOPR, we submitted Gas Pipeline Rates: Rate Changes (Non-Formal) under the temporary information collection FERC-545B to ensure timely submission to OMB as another unrelated item was pending OMB review under FERC-545 (and only one item per collection can be pending at OMB). FERC-545B will also be used for the Final Rule in Docket No. RM96-1-041.

    Action: Proposed information collections.

    OMB Control Nos.: TBD (FERC-545B), 1902-0174 (FERC-549C).

    Respondents: Business or other for profit (e.g., Natural Gas Pipelines, applicable to only a few small businesses).

    Frequency of Responses: One-time implementation (related to business procedures, capital/start-up).

    Necessity of Information: The Commission has determined that the revisions the Commission makes in this Final Rule to its regulations specifically will upgrade the business practices and communication standards of natural gas pipelines by (1) updating the Nominations Related Standards to standardize a rounding process for the elapsed-prorated-scheduled quantity calculation, and dictate that the “Service Requester Contract” data element signify business conditional nominations, rather than mandatory nominations, (2) updating the WGQ EDM Related Standards to make three minor revisions designed to add clarity, update the minimum technical characteristics to account for changes in technology since the previous version (Version 3.0) of the WGQ standards, and update the minimum and suggested operating systems and web browsers that entities should support, and (3) revising the NAESB WGQ data sets or other technical implementation documentation while not resulting in modifications to the underlying business practice standards. The package of standards also includes minor corrections.

    The implementation of these data requirements will provide additional transparency to informational posting websites and will improve communication standards. The implementation of these standards and regulations will promote the additional efficiency and reliability of the natural gas industries' operations thereby helping the Commission to carry out its responsibilities under the NGA. In addition, the Commission's Office of Enforcement will use the data for general industry oversight.

    Internal Review: The Commission has reviewed the business practice standards of natural gas pipelines adopted by NAESB and has determined that the revisions the Commission makes in this Final Rule to its regulations are necessary to provide additional transparency to informational posting websites and promote the additional efficiency and reliability of the natural gas industry's operations. These requirements conform to the Commission's plan for efficient information collection, communication, and management within the natural gas pipeline industry. The Commission has assured itself, by means of its internal review, that there is specific, objective support for the burden estimates associated with the information requirements. Interested persons may obtain information on the reporting requirements by contacting the following: Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, 888 First Street NE, Washington, DC 20426 [Attention: Ellen Brown, Office of the Executive Director], email: [email protected], phone: (202) 502-8663, fax: (202) 273-0873.

    42. Comments concerning the collection of information(s) and the associated burden estimate(s) should be sent to the contact listed above and to OMB, Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, Washington, DC 20503 [Attention: Desk Officer for the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, telephone: (202) 395-0710, fax: (202) 395-4718].

    VII. Environmental Analysis

    43. The Commission concludes that neither an Environmental Assessment nor an Environmental Impact Statement is required for this Final Rule under § 380.4(a) of the Commission's regulations, which provides a categorical exemption for actions that are clarifying, corrective, or procedural, or that do not substantively change the effect of legislation or regulations being amended, for information gathering, analysis, and dissemination, or for the sale, exchange, or transportation of natural gas under sections 4, 5, and 7 of the NGA that require no construction of facilities.36 Therefore, an environmental review is unnecessary and has not been prepared as part of this Final Rule.

    36See 18 CFR 380.4(a)(2)(ii), 380.4(a)(5), 380.4(a)(27).

    VIII. Regulatory Flexibility Act

    44. The Regulatory Flexibility Act of 1980 (RFA) 37 generally requires a description and analysis of final rules that will have significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. The Commission is not required to make such analysis if proposed regulations would not have such an effect.

    37 5 U.S.C. 601-612.

    45. As we stated in the WGQ Version 3.1 NOPR, approximately 165 interstate natural gas pipelines, both large and small, are potential respondents subject to the requirements adopted by this rule. Most of the natural gas pipelines regulated by the Commission do not fall within the RFA's definition of a small entity,38 which is currently defined for natural gas pipelines as a company that, in combination with its affiliates, has total annual receipts of $27.5 million or less.39 For the year 2018, only eleven companies not affiliated with larger companies had annual revenues in combination with its affiliates of $27.5 million or less and therefore could be considered a small entity under the RFA. This represents about seven percent of the total universe of potential respondents that may have a significant burden imposed on them. The Commission estimates that the one-time implementation cost of the proposals in this Final Rule is $538,560 (or $3,264 per entity, regardless of entity size).40 The Commission does not consider the estimated $3,264 impact per entity to be significant. Moreover, these requirements are designed to benefit all customers, including small businesses that must comply with them. Further, as noted above, adoption of consensus standards helps ensure the reasonableness of the standards by requiring that the standards draw support from a broad spectrum of industry participants representing all segments of the industry. Because of that representation and the fact that industry conducts business under these standards, the Commission's regulations should reflect those standards that have the widest possible support.

    38See 5 U.S.C. 601(3) citing section 3 of the Small Business Act (SBA), 15 U.S.C. 623. Section 3 of the SBA defines a “small-business concern” as a business which is independently owned and operated and which is not dominant in its field of operation.

    39 13 CFR 121.201 (Subsector 486-Pipeline Transportation; North American Industry Classification System code 486210; Pipeline Transportation of Natural Gas) (2018). “Annual Receipts” are total income plus cost of goods sold.

    40 This number is derived by dividing the total cost figure by the number of respondents. $538,560/165 = $3,264.

    46. Accordingly, pursuant to § 605(b) of the RFA,41 the regulations being promulgated herein should not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities.

    41 5 U.S.C. 605(b).

    X. Effective Date and Congressional Notification

    50. These regulations are effective February 1, 2019. The Commission has determined (with the concurrence of the Administrator of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs of OMB) that this rule is not a “major rule” as defined in section 351 of the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996. This Final Rule is being submitted to the Senate, House, and Government Accountability Office.

    If you have questions on this temporary deviation, call or email Mr. Michael Thorogood, Bridge Administration Branch Fifth District, Coast Guard, telephone 757-398-6557, email [email protected]

    SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

    The Burlington County Bridge Commission, owner and operator of the SR 413/Burlington-Bristol bridge, that carries SR 413 across the Delaware River, mile 117.8, between Burlington, NJ and Bristol, PA, has requested a temporary deviation from the current operating schedule to facilitate an inspection and maintenance of various mechanical components of the vertical lift span of the drawbridge. The bridge has a vertical clearance of 135 feet above mean high water in the open position, and 61 feet above mean high water in the closed position.

    The current operating schedule is set out in 33 CFR 117.716. Under this temporary deviation, the bridge will be in the closed-to-navigation position from 7 a.m. through 3 p.m.; Monday through Friday; from 7 a.m. on November 26, 2018, through 3 p.m. on December 14, 2018.

    The Delaware River is used by a variety of vessels including deep draft commercial vessels, U.S. government and public vessels, small commercial vessels, tug and barge traffic, and recreational vessels. The Coast Guard has carefully coordinated the restrictions with waterway users in publishing this temporary deviation.

    Vessels able to pass through the bridge in the closed-to-navigation position may do so at any time. The bridge will open on signal, if at least eight hours prior notification is given. The bridge will not be able to open for emergencies and there is no immediate alternative route for vessels unable to pass through the bridge in the closed position. The Coast Guard will also inform the users of the waterway through our Local Notice and Broadcast Notices to Mariners of the change in operating schedule for the bridge so that vessel operators can arrange their transits to minimize any impact caused by the temporary deviation.

    In accordance with 33 CFR 117.35(e), the drawbridge must return to its regular operating schedule immediately at the end of the effective period of this temporary deviation. This deviation from the operating regulations is authorized under 33 CFR 117.35.

    SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

    The Norfolk Southern Corporation, owner and operator of the Norfolk Southern #7 Railroad Bridge across the South Branch of the Elizabeth River, mile 5.8, at Chesapeake, VA, has requested a temporary deviation from the current operating schedule to accommodate bridge maintenance to perform a tie replacement project. The current operating regulation is set out in 33 CFR 117.997(d).

    Under this temporary deviation, the bridge will be maintained in the closed-to-navigation position from 7 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. and from 12:30 p.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Thursday, from November 26, 2018, through December 13, 2018. At all other times the bridge will operate per 33 CFR 117.997(d). The bridge has a vertical clearance of 7 feet above mean high water in the closed position.

    The South Branch of the Elizabeth River is used by a variety of vessels including deep draft ocean-going vessels, U.S. government vessels, small commercial vessels, recreational vessels and tug and barge traffic. The Coast Guard has carefully considered the nature and volume of vessel traffic on the waterway and coordinated with maritime stakeholders in publishing this temporary deviation.

    Vessels able to pass through the bridge in the closed position may do so, after providing 15 minutes notice to the project supervisor at the bridge on VHF-FM channel 13. The bridge will be able to open for emergencies if at least a 1-hour notice is given and there is no immediate alternate route for vessels unable to pass through the bridge in the closed position. The Coast Guard will also inform the users of the waterways through our Local and Broadcast Notice to Mariners of the change in operating schedule for the bridge so that vessel operators can arrange their transits to minimize any impact caused by this temporary deviation.

    In accordance with 33 CFR 117.35(e), the drawbridge must return to its regular operating schedule immediately at the end of this effective period of this temporary deviation. This deviation from the operating regulations is authorized under 33 CFR 117.35.

    Coast Guard, DHS.

    ACTION:

    Temporary final rule.

    SUMMARY:

    The Coast Guard is establishing a temporary moving safety zone around the research vessel OCEAN INTERVENTION II operating in the Mississippi Canyon Block 20 in the Gulf of Mexico. The safety zone encompasses all navigable waters within a 500-yard radius of the vessel. The safety zone is needed to protect persons, vessels, and the marine environment from hazards associated with the vessel's limited maneuverability while it deploys underwater equipment and conducts research activity. Persons and vessels are prohibited from entering or remaining in this zone unless specifically authorized by the Captain of the Port Sector New Orleans or a designated representative.

    DATES:

    This rule is effective without actual notice from December 3, 2018 through 8 p.m. on December 4, 2018. For the purposes of enforcement, actual notice will be used from 6 a.m. on December 2, 2018 through December 3, 2018.

    SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

    I. Table of Abbreviations CFR Code of Federal Regulations COTP Captain of the Port Sector New Orleans DHS Department of Homeland Security FR Federal Register MM Mile marker NPRM Notice of proposed rulemaking § Section U.S.C. United States Code II. Background Information and Regulatory History

    The Coast Guard is issuing this temporary rule without prior notice and opportunity to comment pursuant to authority under section 4(a) of the Administrative Procedure Act (APA) (5 U.S.C. 553(b)). This provision authorizes an agency to issue a rule without prior notice and opportunity to comment when the agency for good cause finds that those procedures are “impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to the public interest.” Under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(3)(B), the Coast Guard finds that good cause exists for not publishing a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) with respect to this rule because it is impracticable. We must establish this safety zone by December 2, 2018 and lack sufficient time to provide a reasonable comment period and then consider those comments before issuing the rule.

    Under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3), the Coast Guard finds that good cause exists for making this rule effective less than 30 days after publication in the Federal Register. Delaying the effective date of this rule would be contrary to the public interest because immediate action is necessary to respond to potential hazards associated with sub-surface research operations.

    III. Legal Authority and Need for Rule

    The Coast Guard is issuing this rule under authority in 33 U.S.C. 1231. The Captain of the Port Sector New Orleans (COTP) has determined that a temporary moving safety zone is necessary to provide for the safety of persons, vessels, and the marine environment during sub-surface research operations in the vicinity of the Mississippi Canyon Block 20. Potential hazards include the risk of injury or pollution if normal vessel traffic were to interfere with the vessel's movement or deployed equipment. The survey activities are scheduled to take place from 6 a.m. on December 2, 2018 through 8 p.m. on December 4, 2018, in the navigable waters of the Mississippi Canyon Block 20, South of New Orleans, LA, in the Gulf of Mexico. This rule is needed to protect persons, vessels, and the marine environment from hazards associated with the vessel's limited maneuverability while it deploys underwater equipment and conducts research activity.

    IV. Discussion of the Rule

    This rule establishes a temporary moving safety zone from 6 a.m. on December 2, 2018 through 8 p.m. on December 4, 2018. The safety zone will cover all navigable waters within 500 yards of the vessel OCEAN INTERVENTION II and equipment being used by personnel to conduct sub-surface research in Mississippi Canyon Block 20, South of New Orleans, LA, in the Gulf of Mexico. The duration of the zone is intended to protect persons, vessels, and the marine environment on these navigable waters while research is being conducted. No vessel or person will be permitted to enter or remain the safety zone without obtaining permission from the COTP or a designated representative. Vessels requiring entry into this safety zone must request permission from the COTP or a designated representative. They may be contacted on VHF-FM Channel 16 or 67 or by telephone at (504) 365-2200. Persons and vessels permitted to enter this safety zone must transit at their slowest safe speed and comply with all lawful directions issued by the COTP or the designated representative. The COTP or a designated representative will inform the public of the enforcement times and date for this safety zone through Broadcast Notices to Mariners (BNMs), Local Notices to Mariners (LNMs), and/or Marine Safety Information Bulletins (MSIBs), as appropriate.

    V. Regulatory Analyses

    We developed this rule after considering numerous statutes and Executive orders related to rulemaking. Below we summarize our analyses based on a number of these statutes and Executive orders, and we discuss First Amendment rights of protestors.

    A. Regulatory Planning and Review

    Executive Orders 12866 and 13563 direct agencies to assess the costs and benefits of available regulatory alternatives and, if regulation is necessary, to select regulatory approaches that maximize net benefits. Executive Order 13771 directs agencies to control regulatory costs through a budgeting process. This rule has not been designated a “significant regulatory action,” under Executive Order 12866. Accordingly, this rule has not been reviewed by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), and pursuant to OMB guidance it is exempt from the requirements of Executive Order 13771.

    This regulatory action determination is based on the size, location, duration, and time-of-year of the safety zone. This safety zone will restrict vessel traffic from entering or remaining within a 500 yard area around a research vessel for approximately three days. Vessels can safely transit around the zone, which impacts a small area of the Gulf of Mexico. Moreover, the Coast Guard will issue Broadcast Notice to Mariners via VHF-FM marine channel 16 about the zone, and the rule allows vessels to seek permission to enter the zone.

    B. Impact on Small Entities

    The Regulatory Flexibility Act of 1980, 5 U.S.C. 601-612, as amended, requires Federal agencies to consider the potential impact of regulations on small entities during rulemaking. The term “small entities” comprises small businesses, not-for-profit organizations that are independently owned and operated and are not dominant in their fields, and governmental jurisdictions with populations of less than 50,000. The Coast Guard certifies under 5 U.S.C. 605(b) that this rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities.

    While some owners or operators of vessels intending to transit the safety zone may be small entities, for the reasons stated in section V.A above, this rule will not have a significant economic impact on any vessel owner or operator.

    Under section 213(a) of the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996 (Pub. L. 104-121), we want to assist small entities in understanding this rule. If the rule would affect your small business, organization, or governmental jurisdiction and you have questions concerning its provisions or options for compliance, please contact the person listed in the FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT section.

    Small businesses may send comments on the actions of Federal employees who enforce, or otherwise determine compliance with, Federal regulations to the Small Business and Agriculture Regulatory Enforcement Ombudsman and the Regional Small Business Regulatory Fairness Boards. The Ombudsman evaluates these actions annually and rates each agency's responsiveness to small business. If you wish to comment on actions by employees of the Coast Guard, call 1-888-REG-FAIR (1-888-734-3247). The Coast Guard will not retaliate against small entities that question or complain about this rule or any policy or action of the Coast Guard.

    C. Collection of Information

    This rule will not call for a new collection of information under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501-3520).

    D. Federalism and Indian Tribal Governments

    A rule has implications for federalism under Executive Order 13132, Federalism, if it has a substantial direct effect on the States, on the relationship between the national government and the States, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities among the various levels of government. We have analyzed this rule under that Order and have determined that it is consistent with the fundamental federalism principles and preemption requirements described in Executive Order 13132.

    Also, this rule does not have tribal implications under Executive Order 13175, Consultation and Coordination with Indian Tribal Governments, because it does not have a substantial direct effect on one or more Indian tribes, on the relationship between the Federal Government and Indian tribes, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities between the Federal Government and Indian tribes. If you believe this rule has implications for federalism or Indian tribes, please contact the person listed in the FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT section above.

    E. Unfunded Mandates Reform Act

    The Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (2 U.S.C. 1531-1538) requires Federal agencies to assess the effects of their discretionary regulatory actions. In particular, the Act addresses actions that may result in the expenditure by a State, local, or tribal government, in the aggregate, or by the private sector of $100,000,000 (adjusted for inflation) or more in any one year. Though this rule will not result in such an expenditure, we do discuss the effects of this rule elsewhere in this preamble.

    F. Environment

    We have analyzed this rule under Department of Homeland Security Directive 023-01 and Commandant Instruction M16475.1D, which guide the Coast Guard in complying with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (42 U.S.C. 4321-4370f), and have determined that this action is one of a category of actions that do not individually or cumulatively have a significant effect on the human environment. This rule involves a safety zone lasting 3 days that will prohibit entry within 500 yards of the research vessel being used for sub-surface research. It is categorically excluded from further review under paragraph L60(a) of Appendix A, Table 1 of DHS Instruction Manual 023-01-001-01, Rev. 01. A Record of Environmental Consideration supporting this determination will be made available in the docket where indicated under ADDRESSES.

    G. Protest Activities

    The Coast Guard respects the First Amendment rights of protesters. Protesters are asked to contact the person listed in the FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT section to coordinate protest activities so that your message can be received without jeopardizing the safety or security of people, places or vessels.

    Coast Guard, DHS.

    ACTION:

    Temporary final rule.

    SUMMARY:

    The Coast Guard is establishing a temporary safety zone for navigable waters within a 500-yard radius of the old Goethals Bridge Pier C on the Staten Island, NY side of the Federal navigation channel. The safety zone is needed to protect personnel, vessels, and the marine environment from potential hazards created by underwater explosives demolition of Pier C. Entry of vessels or persons into this zone is prohibited unless specifically authorized by the Captain of the Port New York and New Jersey or a designated representative.

    DATES:

    This rule is effective without actual notice from December 3, 2018 through December 31, 2018. For the purposes of enforcement, actual notice will be used from November 11, 2018 through December 3, 2018.

Background Information and Regulatory History

    On April 14, 2014 the Coast Guard published a NPRM entitled “Regulated Navigation Area; Arthur Kill, NY and NJ” in the Federal Register (79 FR 20851) that would allow the Coast Guard to enforce speed and wake restrictions and prohibit vessel traffic through the RNA during bridge replacement operations on the Goethals Bridge that could pose an imminent hazard to persons and vessels operating in the area. This proposed rule would also allow the Coast Guard to enforce navigation restrictions and prohibit vessel traffic during drilling, blasting, and dredging operations in support of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers channel deepening project. Proposed work included underwater explosives demolition of the old Goethals Bridge Pier C. We received one comment on this proposed rule. It advocated notifying mariners of waterway closures at least forty eight hours in advance, and that the closures remain in place only as long as required for safety purposes. It also recommended that the Coast Guard work to institute a queue system or other vessel movement scheme that allowed vessels moving with a flood tide to access the right of way in the restricted portion of the Arthur Kill.

    On January 7, 2015, the Coast Guard published a TFR entitled “Regulated Navigation Area; Arthur Kill, NY and NJ” in the Federal Register (80 FR 00829) that allowed the Coast Guard to enforce speed and wake restrictions and prohibit vessel traffic through the RNA during bridge replacement operations on the Goethals Bridge that could pose an imminent hazard to persons and vessels operating in the area. This rule also allowed the Coast Guard to enforce navigation restrictions and prohibit vessel traffic during drilling, blasting, and dredging operations in support of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers channel deepening project. The planned work still included underwater explosives demolition of the old Goethals Bridge Pier C. The Coast Guard said it would make every effort to notify mariners forty eight hours before a waterway closure, but that this may not always be possible due to many dynamic factors in the project. It also said it will meet with various other agencies to assess the need for a vessel queue system and administer a queue system if needed on a case by case basis by Vessel Traffic Service New York. This rule was in effect from January 7, 2015 until October 31, 2018.

    On October 17, 2018 the PANYNJ contractor's project manager notified the First District and Vessel Traffic Service New York that the previously scheduled underwater explosives demolition of the old Goethals Bridge Pier C below mean lower water had been delayed from late October 2018 until Sunday, November 11, 2018 at approximately 10:20 a.m. The contractor requested the Coast Guard create a safety zone to prohibit vessels and persons within a 500 yard radius of old Goethals Bridge Pier C from approximately 10 a.m. until 11:00 a.m. During this approximate 60-minute window, no vessels or persons will be authorized within the safety zone unless authorized by the COTP New York and New Jersey.

    The Coast Guard is issuing this temporary rule without prior notice and opportunity to comment pursuant to authority under section 4(a) of the Administrative Procedure Act (APA) (5 U.S.C. 553(b)). This provision authorizes an agency to issue a rule without prior notice and opportunity to comment when the agency for good cause finds that those procedures are “impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to the public interest.” Under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B), the Coast Guard finds that good cause exists for not publishing a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) with respect to this rule because the schedule for the demolition of old Goethals Bridge Pier C was only recently finalized and extended past the original project completion date, and timely action is needed to respond to the potential safety hazards associated with this demolition project. It is impracticable and contrary to the public interest to publish an NPRM because we must establish this safety zone by November 11, 2018 to allow for the timely demolition of old Goethals Bridge Pier C and promote the safety of the public.

    Under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3), the Coast Guard finds that good cause exists for making this rule effective less than 30 days after publication in the Federal Register. Delaying the effective date of this rule would be impracticable because immediate action is needed to respond to the potential safety hazards associated with underwater explosives demolition of old Goethals Bridge Pier C.

    III. Legal Authority and Need for Rule

    The Coast Guard is issuing this rule under authority in 33 U.S.C. 1231. The COTP has determined that potential hazards associated with underwater explosives demolition tentatively scheduled on Sunday, November 11, 2018, will be a safety concern for anyone within a 500-yard radius of the old Goethals Bridge Pier C. This rule is needed to protect personnel, vessels, and the marine environment in the navigable waters within the safety zone during underwater explosives demolition of the old Goethals Bridge Pier C.

    IV. Discussion of the Rule

    This rule establishes a safety zone from 10:00 a.m. on November 11, 2018 through 11:59 p.m. on December 31, 2018. This rule will be enforced from 10:00 a.m. until 11:00 a.m. on November 11, 2018. The safety zone covers all navigable waters of the Arthur Kill and Old Place Creek within approximately 500 yards of the old Goethals Bridge Pier C in approximate position 40°38′07.7″ N, 074°11′46.4″ W (NAD 83). The Coast Guard is publishing this rulemaking to be effective, and enforceable, through December 31, 2018 in case the project is delayed due to unforeseen circumstances.

    The duration of the zone is intended to protect personnel, vessels, and the marine environment in these navigable waters while the underwater remains of Pier C are demolished for eventual removal. No vessel or person will be permitted to enter the safety zone without obtaining permission from the COTP New York and New Jersey or a designated representative.

    The Coast Guard will notify the public and local mariners of this safety zone through the Local Notice to Mariners and/or Broadcast Notice to Mariners via VHF-FM marine channel 16 in advance of any scheduled enforcement period.

    V. Regulatory Analyses

    We developed this rule after considering numerous statutes and Executive orders related to rulemaking. Below we summarize our analyses based on a number of these statutes and Executive orders, and we discuss First Amendment rights of protestors.

    A. Regulatory Planning and Review

    Executive Orders 12866 and 13563 direct agencies to assess the costs and benefits of available regulatory alternatives and, if regulation is necessary, to select regulatory approaches that maximize net benefits. Executive Order 13771 directs agencies to control regulatory costs through a budgeting process. This rule has not been designated a “significant regulatory action,” under Executive Order 12866. Accordingly, this rule has not been reviewed by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), and pursuant to OMB guidance it is exempt from the requirements of Executive Order 13771.

    This regulatory action determination is based on the following reasons: (1) The safety zone only impacts a small designated area of the Arthur Kill and Old Place Creek, (2) the zone will only be enforced for approximately 60 minutes during the underwater explosives demolition of the old Goethals Bridge Pier C, (3) vessels not constrained by their draft or length may still transit the Arthur Kill south of this safety zone, to, and from sea, via Raritan Bay Reaches and Sandy Hook Channel, (4) the demolition operations are scheduled on Sunday when commercial vessel traffic is less frequent, and (5) the demolition operations are scheduled in the late Fall when recreational vessel traffic is less frequent.

    B. Impact on Small Entities

    The Regulatory Flexibility Act of 1980, 5 U.S.C. 601-612, as amended, requires Federal agencies to consider the potential impact of regulations on small entities during rulemaking. The term “small entities” comprises small businesses, not-for-profit organizations that are independently owned and operated and are not dominant in their fields, and governmental jurisdictions with populations of less than 50,000. The Coast Guard certifies under 5 U.S.C. 605(b) that this rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities.

    While some owners or operators of vessels intending to transit the safety zone may be small entities, for the reasons stated in section V.A above, this rule will not have a significant economic impact on any vessel owner or operator.

    Under section 213(a) of the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996 (Pub. L. 104-121), we want to assist small entities in understanding this rule. If the rule would affect your small business, organization, or governmental jurisdiction and you have questions concerning its provisions or options for compliance, please contact the person listed in the FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT section.

    Small businesses may send comments on the actions of Federal employees who enforce, or otherwise determine compliance with, Federal regulations to the Small Business and Agriculture Regulatory Enforcement Ombudsman and the Regional Small Business Regulatory Fairness Boards. The Ombudsman evaluates these actions annually and rates each agency's responsiveness to small business. If you wish to comment on actions by employees of the Coast Guard, call 1-888-REG-FAIR (1-888-734-3247). The Coast Guard will not retaliate against small entities that question or complain about this rule or any policy or action of the Coast Guard.

    C. Collection of Information

    This rule will not call for a new collection of information under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501-3520).

    D. Federalism and Indian Tribal Governments

    A rule has implications for federalism under Executive Order 13132, Federalism, if it has a substantial direct effect on the States, on the relationship between the national government and the States, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities among the various levels of government. We have analyzed this rule under that Order and have determined that it is consistent with the fundamental federalism principles and preemption requirements described in Executive Order 13132.

    Also, this rule does not have tribal implications under Executive Order 13175, Consultation and Coordination with Indian Tribal Governments, because it does not have a substantial direct effect on one or more Indian tribes, on the relationship between the Federal Government and Indian tribes, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities between the Federal Government and Indian tribes. If you believe this rule has implications for federalism or Indian tribes, please contact the person listed in the FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT section above.

    E. Unfunded Mandates Reform Act

    The Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (2 U.S.C. 1531-1538) requires Federal agencies to assess the effects of their discretionary regulatory actions. In particular, the Act addresses actions that may result in the expenditure by a State, local, or tribal government, in the aggregate, or by the private sector of $100,000,000 (adjusted for inflation) or more in any one year. Though this rule will not result in such an expenditure, we do discuss the effects of this rule elsewhere in this preamble.

    F. Environment

    We have analyzed this rule under Department of Homeland Security Directive 023-01 and Commandant Instruction M16475.1D, which guide the Coast Guard in complying with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (42 U.S.C. 4321-4370f), and have determined that this action is one of a category of actions that do not individually or cumulatively have a significant effect on the human environment. This rule involves a safety zone lasting approximately 60 minutes that will prohibit entry within a 500 yard radius of the old Goethals Bridge Pier C during underwater demolition. It is categorically excluded from further review under paragraph L60(a) of Appendix A, Table 1 of DHS Instruction Manual 023-01-001-01, Rev. 01. A Record of Environmental Consideration supporting this determination is available in the docket where indicated under ADDRESSES.

    DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY Coast Guard 33 CFR Part 165 [Docket No. USCG-2018-1018] RIN 1625-AA00 Safety Zones; Humboldt Bay Bar and Entrance Channel, Eureka, CA, Noyo River Entrance Channel, Ft. Bragg, CA, and Crescent City Harbor Entrance Channel, Crescent City, CA AGENCY:

    Coast Guard, DHS.

    ACTION:

    Temporary final rule.

    SUMMARY:

    The Coast Guard is establishing temporary safety zones in the navigable waters of the Humboldt Bay Bar and Entrance Channel, of Eureka, CA, Noyo River Entrance Channel, of Fort Bragg, CA, and Crescent City Harbor Entrance Channel, of Crescent City, CA to safeguard navigation safety during extreme environmental conditions. These safety zones are established to protect the safety of vessels transiting the areas from the dangers associated with extreme breaking surf and high wind conditions occurring in the Humboldt Bay Bar and Entrance Channel, Noyo River Entrance Channel, and Crescent City Harbor Entrance Channel. Unauthorized persons or vessels are prohibited from entering into, transiting through, or remaining in the safety zones without permission of the Captain of the Port (COTP) or their designated representative.

    DATES:

    This rule is effective without actual notice from December 3, 2018 until March 31, 2019. For the purposes of enforcement, actual notice will be used from November 27, 2018 until December 3, 2018.

    SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Table of Abbreviations APA Administrative Procedure Act COTP U.S. Coast Guard Captain on the Port DHS Department of Homeland Security FR Federal Register NOAA National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration NPRM Notice of Proposed Rulemaking PATCOM U.S. Coast Guard Patrol Commander U.S.C. United States Code II. Background Information and Regulatory History

    The Coast Guard is issuing this temporary final rule without prior notice and opportunity to comment pursuant to authority under section 4(a) of the Administrative Procedure Act (APA) (5 U.S.C. 553(b)). This provision authorizes an agency to issue a rule without prior notice and opportunity to comment when the agency for good cause finds that those procedures are “impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to the public interest.” In this case, the delay associated with rulemaking procedures is impracticable. The Coast Guard was informed on November 16, 2018 of forecasted extreme environmental conditions occurring near three respective locations of California likely to exceed the maximum environmental limits of the 47-foot Motor Lifeboat employed as the primary rescue asset in each area. These three locations include: The Humboldt Bay Bar and Entrance Channel, near Eureka, CA, the Noyo River Entrance Channel, near Fort Bragg, CA, and the Crescent City Harbor Entrance Channel, of Crescent City, CA. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's National Weather Service forecasts up to 25-foot breaking seas in the area through 29 November, 2018 and expects a higher probability of breaking seas of 20 feet or more through December 2018 and January 2019. The hazardous conditions associated with these extreme environmental conditions will occur before the rulemaking process could be completed.

    Under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3), the Coast Guard finds that good cause exists for making this rule effective less than 30 days after publication in the Federal Register. The Coast Guard was informed of forecasted extreme environmental conditions including 20 foot breaking seas occurring near three respective locations of California on November 16, 2018. These three locations include: The Humboldt Bay Entrance Channel, near Eureka, CA, the Noyo River Entrance Channel, near Fort Bragg, CA, and the Crescent City Harbor Entrance Channel, of Crescent City, CA. The hazardous conditions associated with these extreme environmental conditions will occur before the rulemaking process would be completed. Additionally, the observed on scene conditions are equal to, and likely to exceed, the maximum environmental limits of the 47 foot Motor Lifeboat employed as the primary rescue asset in the area. Because of the dangers posed by these extreme environmental conditions and the resulting limited availability of rescue assets, these safety zones are necessary to provide for the safety of mariners transiting the area. For the safety concerns noted, it is in the public interest to have these regulations in effect immediately.

    III. Legal Authority and Need for Rule

    The Coast Guard is issuing this rule under authority in 33 U.S.C. 1231. Notable hazards associated with the extreme environmental conditions have been observed in the Humboldt Bay Bar and Entrance Channel near Eureka, CA, the Noyo River Entrance Channel, near Fort Bragg, CA, and the Crescent City Harbor Entrance Channel, of Crescent City, CA. These safety zones establish temporary restricted areas on the navigable waters of the Humboldt Bay Bar and Entrance Channel near Eureka, CA, the Noyo River Entrance Channel, near Fort Bragg, CA, and the Crescent City Harbor Entrance Channel, of Crescent City, CA. These restricted areas are necessary to mitigate the risks associated with vessels transiting the area while extreme environmental conditions exist on scene.

    IV. Discussion of the Rule

    The Coast Guard will enforce, independent of each other, three respective safety zones in the navigable waters of the Humboldt Bay Bar and Entrance Channel near Eureka, CA, the Noyo River Entrance Channel, near Fort Bragg, CA, and the Crescent City Harbor Entrance Channel, of Crescent City, CA, when the COTP determines that the on scene conditions are hazardous and unsafe for vessel transits, typically expected to be 20 foot breaking seas at each location. Enforcement will be announced via Broadcast Notice to Mariners. These safety zones are effective from November 27, 2018, through March 31, 2019.

    The effect of the temporary safety zones is to restrict navigation in the vicinity of the Humboldt Bay Bar and Entrance Channel, Noyo River Entrance Channel, and Crescent City Harbor Entrance Channel while the hazardous conditions associated with extreme environmental conditions exist, and until the Coast Guard deems the safety zone is no longer needed. Except for persons or vessels authorized by the COTP, no person or vessel may enter or remain in the restricted areas during times of enforcement. These regulated areas are needed to keep vessels away from the immediate vicinity of the hazardous conditions associated to ensure the safety of transiting vessels in each respective area.

    V. Regulatory Analyses

    We developed this rule after considering numerous statutes and Executive orders related to rulemaking. Below we summarize our analyses based on a number of these statutes and Executive orders, and we discuss First Amendment rights of protestors.

    A. Regulatory Planning and Review

    Executive Orders 12866 and 13563 direct agencies to assess the costs and benefits of available regulatory alternatives and, if regulation is necessary, to select regulatory approaches that maximize net benefits. Executive Order 13771 directs agencies to control regulatory costs through a budgeting process. This rule has not been designated a “significant regulatory action,” under Executive Order 12866. Accordingly, this rule has not been reviewed by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), and pursuant to OMB guidance it is exempt from the requirements of Executive Order 13771.

    This regulatory action determination is based on the limited duration and narrowly tailored geographic area of the safety zone. Although this rule restricts access to the waters encompassed by the safety zone, the effect of this rule will not be significant because the local waterway users will be notified via public Broadcast Notice to Mariners to ensure the safety zone will result in minimum impact. The entities most likely to be affected are waterfront facilities, commercial vessels, and pleasure craft engaged in recreational activities.

    B. Impact on Small Entities

    The Regulatory Flexibility Act of 1980, 5 U.S.C. 601-612, as amended, requires federal agencies to consider the potential impact of regulations on small entities during rulemaking. The term “small entities” comprises small businesses, not-for-profit organizations that are independently owned and operated and are not dominant in their fields, and governmental jurisdictions with populations of less than 50,000. The Coast Guard certifies under 5 U.S.C. 605(b) that this rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities.

    This rule may affect the following entities, some of which may be small entities: Owners and operators of waterfront facilities, commercial vessels, and pleasure craft engaged in recreational activities and sightseeing, if these facilities or vessels are in the vicinity of the safety zone at times when this zone is being enforced. This rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities for the following reasons: (i) This rule will encompass only a small portion of the waterway for a limited period of time while hazardous conditions exist, and (ii) the maritime public will be advised in advance of this safety zone via Broadcast Notice to Mariners.

    Under section 213(a) of the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996 (Pub. L. 104-121), we want to assist small entities in understanding this rule. If the rule would affect your small business, organization, or governmental jurisdiction and you have questions concerning its provisions or options for compliance, please contact the person listed in the FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT section.

    Small businesses may send comments on the actions of Federal employees who enforce, or otherwise determine compliance with, Federal regulations to the Small Business and Agriculture Regulatory Enforcement Ombudsman and the Regional Small Business Regulatory Fairness Boards. The Ombudsman evaluates these actions annually and rates each agency's responsiveness to small business. If you wish to comment on actions by employees of the Coast Guard, call 1-888-REG-FAIR (1-888-734-3247). The Coast Guard will not retaliate against small entities that question or complain about this rule or any policy or action of the Coast Guard.

    C. Collection of Information

    This rule will not call for a new collection of information under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501-3520).

    D. Federalism and Indian Tribal Governments

    A rule has implications for federalism under Executive Order 13132, Federalism, if it has a substantial direct effect on the States, on the relationship between the national government and the States, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities among the various levels of government. We have analyzed this rule under that Order and have determined that it is consistent with the fundamental federalism principles and preemption requirements described in Executive Order 13132.

    Also, this rule does not have tribal implications under Executive Order 13175, Consultation and Coordination with Indian Tribal Governments, because it does not have a substantial direct effect on one or more Indian tribes, on the relationship between the Federal Government and Indian tribes, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities between the Federal Government and Indian tribes. If you believe this rule has implications for federalism or Indian tribes, please contact the person listed in the FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT section above.

    E. Unfunded Mandates Reform Act

    The Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (2 U.S.C. 1531-1538) requires Federal agencies to assess the effects of their discretionary regulatory actions. In particular, the Act addresses actions that may result in the expenditure by a State, local, or tribal government, in the aggregate, or by the private sector of $100,000,000 (adjusted for inflation) or more in any one year. Though this rule will not result in such expenditure, we do discuss the effects of this rule elsewhere in this preamble.

    F. Environment

    We have analyzed this rule under Department of Homeland Security Management Directive 023-01 and Commandant Instruction M16475.1D, which guide the Coast Guard in complying with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (42 U.S.C. 4321-4370f), and have determined that this action is one of a category of actions that do not individually or cumulatively have a significant effect on the human environment. This rule involves a safety zone of limited size and duration. It is categorically excluded from further review under Categorical Exclusion L60(a) of Appendix A, Table 1 of DHS Instruction Manual 023-01-001-01, Rev. 01. A Record of Environmental Consideration supporting this determination is available in the docket where indicated under ADDRESSES.

    G. Protest Activities

    The Coast Guard respects the First Amendment rights of protesters. Protesters are asked to contact the person listed in the FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT section to coordinate protest activities so that your message can be received without jeopardizing the safety or security of people, places or vessels.

    SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

    I. Table of Abbreviations CFR Code of Federal Regulations DHS Department of Homeland Security FR Federal Register NPRM Notice of proposed rulemaking § Section U.S.C. United States Code II. Background Information and Regulatory History

    The Coast Guard is amending the regulation for safety zones for annual fireworks displays in the Captain of the Port Zone Columbia River, 33 CFR 165.1315. This rule is removing 10 safety zones for inactive fireworks displays, adding 1 safety zone for a new, recurring fireworks display for which we previously issued a temporary safety zone, and updating the date or location for 3 existing fireworks displays.

    On September 28, 2018, the Coast Guard published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) titled, “Safety Zone; Annual Fireworks Displays within the Sector Columbia River Captain of the Port Zone” (83 FR 49028). There we stated why we issued the NPRM, and invited comments on our proposed regulatory action related to annual fireworks displays. During the comment period that ended October 29, 2018, we received four comments.

    III. Legal Authority and Need for Rule

    The Coast Guard is issuing this rule under authority in 33 U.S.C. 1231. The Captain of the Port Columbia River (COTP) has determined that potential hazards associated with the fireworks displays create hazardous conditions for the maritime public because of the large number of vessels near the displays, as well as the noise, falling debris, and explosions that occur during the event. Because firework discharge sites pose a potential hazard to the maritime public, these safety zones are necessary in order to restrict vessel movement and reduce vessel congregation in the proximity of the firework discharge sites. The purpose of this rule is to ensure safety of vessels and the navigable waters in the safety zone before, during, and after the scheduled events and provides the public accurate information regarding safety zones for annual fireworks displays in the Captain of the Port Zone Columbia River.

    IV. Discussion of Comments, Changes, and the Rule

    As noted above, we received four comments on our NPRM published September 28, 2018. The first comment suggested establishing new safety zones to replace the 10 inactive safety zones this rule is removing. There has been no indication from the sponsors of these events that they plan to continue them and our office has not received any additional information to warrant the addition of replacement safety zones. The second and third comments contained no suggested changes or recommendations. The fourth comment supported the creation of this rule. There are no changes in the regulatory text of this rule from the proposed rule in the NPRM.

    The Coast Guard is removing 10 fireworks display safety zones in 33 CFR 165.1315 that are listed in Table 1 below because there has been no indication from the sponsors of these events that they plan to continue them.

    Table 1—List of Safety Zone We Are Removing From 33 CFR 165.1315 Cinco de Mayo Fireworks Portland, OR One day in May 45°30′58″ N 122°40′12″ W Newport High School Graduation Fireworks Newport, OR One day in June 44°36′48″ N 124°04′10″ W Celebrate Milwaukie Milwaukie, OR One day in July 45°26′33″ N 122°38′44″ W Arlington 4th of July Arlington, OR One day in July 45°43′23″ N 120°12′11″ W East County 4th of July Fireworks Gresham, OR One day in July 45°33′32″ N 122°27′10″ W Rufus 4th of July Fireworks Rufus, OR One day in July 45°41′39″ N 120°45′16″ W Maritime Heritage Festival St. Helens, OR One day in July 45°51′54″ N 122°47′26″ W Lynch Picnic West Linn, OR One day in July 45°23′37″ N 122°37′52″ W First Friday Milwaukie Milwaukie, OR One day in September 45°26′33″ N 122°38′44″ W Willamette Falls Heritage Festival Oregon City, OR One day in October 45°21′44″ N 122°36′21″ W

    Additionally, the Coast Guard is adding a new fireworks display safety zone. We previously issued a temporary safety zone (83 FR 30869, July 2, 2018) for that event, and after conferring with the event sponsor, we determined it will become a recurring fireworks display. This safety zone will cover all navigable waters within a 450-yard radius of the fireworks barge in the Willamette River located at approximately 45°24′37″ N, 122°39′30″ W in the vicinity of George Rogers Park in Lake Oswego, OR. The following will be added to the table in 33 CFR 165.1315:

    City of Lake Oswego 4th of July Fireworks Lake Oswego, OR One day in July 45°24′37″ N 122°39′30″ W

    Finally, the Coast Guard is revising three existing fireworks display safety zones. These revisions include updating the date for 4th of July at Pekin Ferry to more precisely describe when the fireworks display will occur, correcting the wrong state listed for the Independence Day at the Port and updating the location for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Light the Night Fireworks.

    These updates will eliminate any confusion caused by the fireworks display safety zones listed in the 33 CFR 165.1315 table and any subsequently issued temporary safety zones resulting from changes to the dates or locations of the events. The regulatory text appears at the end of this document.

    V. Regulatory Analyses

    We developed this rule after considering numerous statutes and Executive orders related to rulemaking. Below we summarize our analyses based on a number of these statutes and Executive orders, and we discuss First Amendment rights of protestors.

    A. Regulatory Planning and Review

    Executive Orders 12866 and 13563 direct agencies to assess the costs and benefits of available regulatory alternatives and, if regulation is necessary, to select regulatory approaches that maximize net benefits. Executive Order 13771 directs agencies to control regulatory costs through a budgeting process. This rule has not been designated a “significant regulatory action,” under Executive Order 12866. Accordingly, this rule has not been reviewed by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), and pursuant to OMB guidance it is exempt from the requirements of Executive Order 13771.

    This regulatory action determination is based on size, location, duration, and time-of-day of the safety zone. Vessel traffic will be able to safely transit around these safety zones which will impact small designated areas of the Oregon coast, Tillamook Bay, the Columbia River and its tributaries, and the Clatskanie River for approximately 2 hours during the evening when commercial vessel traffic is normally low. Moreover, the Coast Guard will issue a Broadcast Notice to Mariners via VHF-FM marine channel 16 about the zones, and the rule allows vessels to seek permission to enter the zone.

    B. Impact on Small Entities

    The Regulatory Flexibility Act of 1980, 5 U.S.C. 601-612, as amended, requires Federal agencies to consider the potential impact of regulations on small entities during rulemaking. The term “small entities” comprises small businesses, not-for-profit organizations that are independently owned and operated and are not dominant in their fields, and governmental jurisdictions with populations of less than 50,000. The Coast Guard received no comments from the Small Business Administration on this rulemaking. The Coast Guard certifies under 5 U.S.C. 605(b) that this rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities.

    While some owners or operators of vessels intending to transit the safety zones may be small entities, for the reasons stated in section V.A above, this rule will not have a significant economic impact on any vessel owner or operator.

    Under section 213(a) of the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996 (Pub. L. 104-121), we want to assist small entities in understanding this rule. If the rule would affect your small business, organization, or governmental jurisdiction and you have questions concerning its provisions or options for compliance, please contact the person listed in the FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT section.

    Small businesses may send comments on the actions of Federal employees who enforce, or otherwise determine compliance with, Federal regulations to the Small Business and Agriculture Regulatory Enforcement Ombudsman and the Regional Small Business Regulatory Fairness Boards. The Ombudsman evaluates these actions annually and rates each agency's responsiveness to small business. If you wish to comment on actions by employees of the Coast Guard, call 1-888-REG-FAIR (1-888-734-3247). The Coast Guard will not retaliate against small entities that question or complain about this rule or any policy or action of the Coast Guard.

    C. Collection of Information

    This rule will not call for a new collection of information under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501-3520).

    D. Federalism and Indian Tribal Governments

    A rule has implications for federalism under Executive Order 13132, Federalism, if it has a substantial direct effect on the States, on the relationship between the national government and the States, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities among the various levels of government. We have analyzed this rule under that Order and have determined that it is consistent with the fundamental federalism principles and preemption requirements described in Executive Order13132.

    Also, this rule does not have tribal implications under Executive Order 13175, Consultation and Coordination with Indian Tribal Governments, because it does not have a substantial direct effect on one or more Indian tribes, on the relationship between the Federal Government and Indian tribes, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities between the Federal Government and Indian tribes. If you believe this rule has implications for federalism or Indian tribes, please contact the person listed in the FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT section.

    E. Unfunded Mandates Reform Act

    The Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (2 U.S.C. 1531-1538) requires Federal agencies to assess the effects of their discretionary regulatory actions. In particular, the Act addresses actions that may result in the expenditure by a State, local, or tribal government, in the aggregate, or by the private sector of $100,000,000 (adjusted for inflation) or more in any one year. Though this rule will not result in such an expenditure, we do discuss the effects of this rule elsewhere in this preamble.

    F. Environment

    We have analyzed this rule under Department of Homeland Security Directive 023-01 and Commandant Instruction M16475.1D, which guide the Coast Guard in complying with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (42 U.S.C. 4321-4370f), and have determined that this action is one of a category of actions that do not individually or cumulatively have a significant effect on the human environment. This rule involves safety zones lasting less approximately two hours in duration that will prohibit entry within 450 yards of fireworks launch sites. It is categorically excluded from further review under paragraph L60(a) of Appendix A, Table 1 of DHS Instruction Manual 023-01-001-01, Rev. 01. A Record of Environmental Consideration supporting this determination is available in the docket where indicated under ADDRESSES.

    G. Protest Activities

    The Coast Guard respects the First Amendment rights of protesters. Protesters are asked to contact the person listed in the FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT section to coordinate protest activities so that your message can be received without jeopardizing the safety or security of people, places or vessels.

    ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY 40 CFR Part 52 [EPA-R08-OAR-2017-0672; FRL-9986-75-Region 8] Approval and Promulgation of Implementation Plans; South Dakota; Regional Haze 5-Year Progress Report State Implementation Plan AGENCY:

    Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

    ACTION:

    Final rule.

    SUMMARY:

    The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is finalizing approval of a State Implementation Plan (SIP) revision submitted by the State of South Dakota through the South Dakota Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) on January 27, 2016. South Dakota's January 27, 2016 SIP revision (Progress Report) addresses requirements of the Clean Air Act (CAA or Act) and the EPA's rules that require each state to submit periodic reports describing progress towards reasonable progress goals (RPGs) established for regional haze and a determination of the adequacy of the state's existing SIP addressing regional haze (regional haze plan). The EPA is finalizing approval of South Dakota's determination that the State's regional haze plan is adequate to meet these RPGs for the first implementation period covering through 2018 and requires no substantive revision at this time.

    DATES:

    This rule will be effective January 2, 2019.

    SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

    Throughout this document “we,” “us,” and “our” means the EPA.

    I. Background

    States are required to submit a progress report in the form of a SIP revision for the first implementation period that evaluates progress towards the RPGs for each mandatory Class I federal area1 (Class I area) within the state and for each Class I area outside the state which may be affected by emissions from within the state (40 CFR 51.308(g)). In addition, the provisions of 40 CFR 51.308(h) require states to submit, at the same time as the 40 CFR 51.308(g) progress report, a determination of the adequacy of the state's existing regional haze plan. The first progress report is due 5 years after submittal of the initial regional haze plan. On January 21, 2011, South Dakota submitted the State's first regional haze SIP in accordance with 40 CFR 51.308, which the EPA fully approved.2

    1 Areas designated as mandatory Class I federal areas consist of national parks exceeding 6000 acres, wilderness areas and national memorial parks exceeding 5000 acres, and all international parks that were in existence on August 7, 1977 (42 U.S.C. 7472(a)). These areas are listed at 40 CFR part 81, subpart D.

    2 77 FR 24845 (April 26, 2012). EPA fully approved South Dakota's regional haze SIP submittal addressing the requirements of the first implementation period for regional haze.

    On January 27, 2016, South Dakota submitted its Progress Report which, among other things, detailed the progress made in the first period toward implementation of the long-term strategy outlined in the State's regional haze plan; the visibility improvement measured at Badlands and Wind Cave National Parks, the two Class I areas within South Dakota, and at Class I areas outside of the State potentially impacted by emissions from South Dakota; and a determination of the adequacy of the State's existing regional haze plan.

    In a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) published on March 19, 2018 (83 FR 11946), the EPA proposed to approve South Dakota's Progress Report. The details of South Dakota's submission and the rationale for the EPA's actions are explained in the NPRM.

    II. Response to Comments

    Comments on the proposed rulemaking were due on or before April 18, 2018. The EPA received a total of 16 public comment submissions on the proposed approval. All public comments received on this rulemaking action are available for review by the public and may be viewed by following the instructions for access to docket materials as outlined in the ADDRESSES section of this preamble. After reviewing the comments, the EPA has determined that 15 of the comment submissions are outside the scope of our proposed action and/or fail to identify any material issue necessitating a response. We received one comment letter from the National Parks Conservation Association (NPCA), containing two significant comments that we are responding to here. Below is a summary of those comments and the EPA's responses. Comment: In a comment letter dated April 18, 2018, the NPCA asserted that South Dakota's Regional Haze 5-Year Progress Report and the EPA's analysis of the progress report fail to meet 40 CFR 51.308(g)(5) as neither mentions the Gerald Gentleman Station in Nebraska. The commenter states that South Dakota's SIP and RPGs relied on visibility modeling from the Central Regional Air Planning Association (CENRAP) that assumed the installation of scrubbers for control of sulfur dioxide (SO2) emissions from the Gerald Gentleman Station, which has a significant impact on South Dakota's Class I areas. The commenter suggests that the lack of requirements to install scrubbers and limit SO2 emissions from the Gerald Gentleman Station constitutes an anthropogenic change that impedes visibility progress. Finally, the commenter suggests the lack of change in emissions at the Gerald Gentleman Station since the baseline period “impedes visibility progress” and is a “significant change” that the EPA's guidance suggests should be discussed to meet the requirements of § 51.308(g)(5).

    Response: We acknowledge that the Progress Report from South Dakota does not include an assessment of emission changes from the Gerald Gentleman Station. However, such an assessment is not required given the facts about South Dakota's SIP, emission trends for Gerald Gentleman, and visibility trends at the two Class I areas in South Dakota. Changes in emissions from the Gerald Gentleman Station are not “significant changes” within the meaning of this section of the Regional Haze Rule (RHR). It should be noted that, South Dakota cannot regulate emissions from the Gerald Gentleman Station in Nebraska.

    Section 51.308(g)(5) of the RHR requires that periodic progress reports contain an assessment of any significant changes in anthropogenic emissions within or outside the state that have occurred during the implementation period including whether such changes were anticipated and whether they have limited or impeded progress in reducing emissions and improving visibility. The EPA provided guidance that summarized and clarified the requirements for progress reports in a document titled General Principles for the 5-Year Regional Haze Progress Reports for the Initial Regional Haze State Implementation Plans (Intended to Assist States and EPA Regional Offices in Development and Review of the Progress Reports). 3 In relation to § 51.308(g)(5), the guidance states that “[t]his requirement is aimed at assessing whether any such significant emissions changes have occurred within the state over the 5-year period since the SIP was submitted, and whether emissions increases outside the state are affecting a Class I area within the state adversely.” 4 Further, the guidance principles specify that a “significant change” that can “limit or impede progress” could be “either (1) a significant unexpected increase in anthropogenic emissions that occurred over the 5-year period (that is, an increase that was not projected in the analysis for the SIP), or (2) a significant expected reduction in anthropogenic emissions that did not occur (that is, a projected decrease in emissions in the analysis for the SIP that was not realized).” 5

    3 U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Office of Air Quality Planning and Standards Air Quality Policy Division Geographic Strategies Group, April 2013.

    4 Guidance Priciples, p. 15.

    5 Ibid.

    The “significance” of a change in emissions, if there is a change, is evaluated on a case-by-case basis depending on the factual context. It is clear from both § 51.308(g)(5) and the guidance that significance depends on whether a change in emissions is large enough to have limited or impeded progress in improving visibility, with the adopted RPGs being important benchmarks for progress.

    In this instance, there have not been significant changes in emissions within the meaning of § 51.308(g)(5). First, there has not been a “significant unexpected increase” in emissions from outside South Dakota, i.e., from the Gerald Gentleman Station. While this first questions is perhaps more relevant where a new or modified source has increased emissions over what was projected in the SIP, we nonetheless assess it in respect to Gerald Gentleman Station. A review of emissions data submitted to the EPA Air Markets Program Data indicates that the annual SO2 emissions from Units 1 and 2 decreased in the 5-year period from the submittal of the initial SIP. In the 5-year period before submittal of the initial SIP, 2006 through 2010, the annual SO2 emissions from the facility averaged 30,597 tons per year.6 In the following 5-year period, 2011 through 2016, the annual SO2 emissions averaged 26,696 tons per year.7 The average annual SO2 emissions between the two periods decreased by 3,901 tons per year.8 As such, we conclude that there has not been a significant unexpected increase in anthropogenic emissions from the Gerald Gentleman Station.

    6 Refer to spread sheet in the docket titled “Gerald Gentleman Station Annual Emissions from AMPD.xlsx” located in the docket.

    7 Ibid.

    8 Because no new SO2 controls have been installed at the Gerald Gentleman Station, the reduction in emissions between the two time periods, 3,901 tons per year, is primarily due to a decrease in heat input.

    Second, there was not a significant expected reduction in anthropogenic emissions that did not occur. As a preliminary matter, we acknowledge that the RPGs for South Dakota's Class I areas are based on the assumption that SO2 emissions from the Gerald Gentleman Station would be reduced by the application of scrubbers that achieve the “presumptive BART” emission rate of 0.15 lb/MMBtu.9 This assumption was built into the projected emission inventory for air quality modeling used to establish RPGs.10 However, this occurred before Nebraska made its BART determination. It also occurred before Nebraska completed its consultation with other states, including South Dakota, in the development of its emission control strategies.11 In the Agency's final action on Nebraska's Regional Haze SIP, the EPA addressed the disparity between the modeling assumptions for South Dakota's RPGs and the SO2 BART emission limit the EPA chose for the Gerald Gentleman Station.12 In response to comments on this issue, the Agency noted that “South Dakota had the opportunity to comment on Nebraska's draft BART permits as well as the overall regional haze SIP, and did not ask for additional emission reductions from Nebraska.” 13 The Agency concluded that “Nebraska did establish a BART limit for the Gerald Gentleman Station and informed South Dakota that its BART determination deviated from what was included in the modeling [for RPGs], [and] the fact that the final BART determination varied from the predictions is not grounds for disapproving either SIP.” 14 Indeed, the content of the long-term strategy (including BART controls) determines the RPGs, not the opposite case. If not for the difference in timing between the air quality modeling for the RPGs and Nebraska's BART determination, South Dakota's RPGs would have reflected Nebraska's BART determination for the Gerald Gentleman Station. Put more concisely, the SO2 BART requirement for Gerald Gentleman Station is not predicated on an assumption that was made in the modeling analysis before BART was determined, but rather on the control measures that were ultimately agreed upon between Nebraska and South Dakota through the requisite consultation process.

    9 For comparison, the SO2 annual emission rate (in lb/MMBtu) at the Gerald Gentleman Station was about 0.58 lb/MMBtu during 2002, which was the period used as the baseline by Nebraska when it developed its SIP. The annual emission rate in lb/MMBtu has not changed appreciably since that time.

    10 The emissions projected for the Gerald Gentleman Station by CENRAP were incorporated into the Western Regional Air Partnership (WRAP) reasonable progress modeling for 2018 (referred to as the PRP18b scenario). The RPGs for the South Dakota Class I areas were determined by the WRAP modeling.

    11 40 CFR 51.308(d)(3)(i) requires that a state consult with another state if its emissions are reasonably anticipated to contribute to visibility impairment at that state's Class I area(s), and that a state consult with other states if those other states' emissions are reasonably anticipated to contribute to visibility impairment at its Class I areas.

    12 77 FR 40150 (July 6, 2012).

    13 Ibid, 40155.

    14 Ibid.

    Nonetheless, in the Agency's final action for Nebraska, the EPA disapproved the SO2 BART determination for the Gerald Gentleman Station because the State did not comply with the EPA's regulations. The EPA also disapproved Nebraska's long-term strategy insofar as it relied on the deficient SO2 BART determination at the Gerald Gentleman Station. To address these deficiencies, in the same action, the EPA promulgated a Federal Implementation Plan relying on the Cross-State Air Pollution Rule (CSAPR, or “transport rule”) as an alternative to BART for SO2 emissions from Gerald Gentleman Station,15 with the result that the long-term strategy for Nebraska does not require that SO2 scrubbers be installed at the Gerald Gentleman Station to meet BART. Again, the RPGs are intended to reflect the emission reductions in states' long-term strategies. The fact that Nebraska's long-term strategy ultimately contains a different BART emission limit for the Gerald Gentleman Station than initially assumed does not mean that any difference between the two constitutes “a significant expected reduction in anthropogenic emissions that did not occur.”

    15 40 CFR 52.143.

    The guidance further clarifies that the requirement in § 51.308(g)(5) is “aimed at assessing . . . whether emissions increases outside the state are affecting a Class I area within the state adversely. For those Class I areas where there is a significant overall downward trend in both visibility and nearby emissions, we expect that this assessment will point to those trends in support of a simple negative declaration satisfying this requirement” (emphasis added).16 This means that if aggregate emissions influencing the affected Class I areas are significantly declining and visibility conditions are significantly improving, an upward “change” for one contributing source relative to expectations is not significant. We accordingly turn to the topic of aggregate emissions and visibility trends for the Class I areas in South Dakota.17

    16 Principles, p. 15.

    17 83 FR 11949-11950 (March 19, 2018).

    In the Progress Report, South Dakota compared the most recent updated emission inventory data available at the time of Progress Report development with the baseline emissions inventory used in the modeling for the regional haze plan. The State's comparison showed that the statewide emissions of key visibility impairing pollutants, including SO2, had declined. For example, between the baseline emission inventory and the most recent updated emission inventory of 2011, South Dakota found that anthropogenic SO2 emissions declined by 8,285 tons per year. The emissions trends do not suggest any deficiencies in South Dakota's SIP that would affect achievement of the RPGs for Wind Cave and Badlands National Parks.

    In the Progress Report, South Dakota provided baseline visibility conditions (2000-2004), current conditions based on the most recently available visibility monitoring data available at the time of Progress Report development, the difference between these current visibility conditions and baseline visibility conditions, and the change in visibility impairment from 2009-2013.18 In order to further assess the trend in visibility as it relates to § 51.308(g)(5), the EPA has expanded on the analysis of visibility included in South Dakota's Progress Report. In addition to the information and analysis provided in the Progress Report, Table 1 below presents updated Interagency Monitoring of Protected Visual Environments (IMPROVE) monitoring data which shows that visibility for the two Class I areas in the State, Badlands and Wind Cave National Parks, has continued to improve beyond the 2009-2013 period considered by South Dakota. Table 1 shows a continued downward trend in visibility impairment (in deciviews) at both Badlands and Wind Cave National Parks from the baseline time period (2000-2004) to the most current time period (2012-2016).

    In Figures 1 and 2 below, in addition to comparing visibility improvement to the 2018 RPGs, we also compare monitored visibility (as a 5-year rolling average) to the Uniform Rate of Progress (URP). As described in the RHR, the URP is the uniform rate of visibility improvement that would need to be maintained during each implementation period in order to attain natural visibility conditions by the end of 2064.21 While the RHR does not require that states compare monitored visibility to the URP as part of their progress reports, the EPA has done so here because it is instructive when considering visibility trends in the context of § 51.308(g)(5). Figures 1 and 2 show that the visibility in recent years for both Badlands and Wind Cave National Parks is well below the RPGs. For example, for Badlands National Park, the 2011 through 2016 5-year rolling average of the 20% haziest days is 14.7 deciviews, which is well below the 2018 RPG of 16.3 deciviews. Moreover, the visibility for both Class I areas is below the URP in recent years; at Badlands National Park, the 5-year rolling average of the 20% haziest days is below the URP beginning in 2012 and extending through the most recent year of available IMPROVE data (2016). Similar trends are apparent for Wind Cave National Park. As with the emissions trends, the visibility trends do not suggest any deficiencies in South Dakota's SIP that would adversely affect achievement of the RPGs for Wind Cave and Badlands National Parks.

    As previously stated, progress relative to the adopted RPGs is an important benchmark in assessing whether an increase in the Gerald Gentleman Station's SO2 emissions relative to the expectations inherent in the SIP has “limited or impeded progress in improving visibility.” While there would likely have been more progress if the Gerald Gentleman Station's SO2 emissions had been reduced even more over time than they have been, in the context of improvements already in the first implementation period relative to the RPGs and the URP for both Class I areas in South Dakota, we do not consider any lack of emission reductions from the Gerald Gentleman Station as having limited or impeded progress in improving visibility.

    23 Ibid.

    In summary, we find that there has been no significant change in anthropogenic emissions relative to what was expected under South Dakota's regional haze SIP. Moreover, even if there had been such a change, emissions and visibility trends do not suggest any deficiencies in South Dakota's SIP that would affect achievement of reasonable progress for Wind Cave and Badlands National Parks. Given our conclusions regarding § 51.308(g)(5) here, we find that the absence of a discussion of the Gerald Gentleman Station is not a failure to report on “significant changes in anthropogenic emissions” as that term is used in § 51.308(g)(5) nor a shortcoming in South Dakota's Progress Report that requires our disapproval of the Progress Report. Consequently, consistent with the RHR and our guidance principles, we are finalizing our finding that South Dakota has met the requirements of § 51.308(g)(5).24

    24 Because we are finding that South Dakota has not failed to report on “significant changes in anthropogenic emissions” as that term is used in § 51.308(g)(5), we have not needed to reach a conclusion as to whether such a failure in this particular situation would be so important that it would require disapproval of the Progress Report.

    Comment: The NPCA also asserts that “EPA has previously identified the need for consultation between South Dakota and Nebraska in the next planning period regarding the impacts of the Gerald Gentleman Station on South Dakota's Class I areas,” and asks the EPA to “work with South Dakota to include a discussion of the Gerald Gentleman Station in its progress report.”

    Response: The Progress Report that is the subject of today's action addresses the requirements of the first regional haze planning period. When adopting long-term strategies and establishing RPGs for the second regional haze planning period, extending to 2028, the RHR requires that states once again “consult with those states that are reasonably anticipated to cause or contribute to visibility impairment in [ ] mandatory Class I area[s].” 25 As such, South Dakota will have an opportunity to consult with Nebraska regarding SO2 controls for the Gerald Gentleman Station in the second planning period. Moreover, nothing in this final rule would prevent Nebraska, in consultation with South Dakota or other states, from assessing the need for SO2 controls at the Gerald Gentleman Station as part of its long-term strategy for the second planning period.

    25 40 CFR 51.308(f)(2)(ii).

    Comment: The NPCA also asserts that the EPA does not adequately address in the NPRM South Dakota's progress towards investigating and developing a smoke management plan.26 The NPCA asserts that “EPA's analysis incorrectly states that `The Progress Report presents the extensive information collected and analyzed to investigate the impacts of a smoke management plan'.” 27 The NPCA acknowledges that the South Dakota Progress Report discusses the impact of prescribed fire at Wind Cave National Park, but asserts that the progress report does not mention a smoke management plan specifically. The commenter additionally asserts that the progress report does not include an “update or information about South Dakota's progress towards investigating and developing a smoke management plan.” 28 Finally, the commenter requests that the EPA work with South Dakota to include an update on South Dakota's examination of a smoke management plan as the NPCA asserts that 40 CFR 51.308(g)(1) requires that the status of all control strategies be included in the SIP.

    Response: As this response to comment will show, South Dakota is committed to investigating the impacts of prescribed burns and wildfires and considering smoke management practices and a smoke management plan; however, there is no smoke management plan currently included in the SIP. Insofar as the comment implicates the adequacy of the State's existing Regional Haze SIP, we note that our review of the Progress Report is not a second review of the adequacy of that SIP, as the public already had an opportunity to review and comment on it and the EPA approved the SIP as meeting the requirements of 40 CFR 51.308(d)(3)(v)(E). However, since South Dakota committed to investigating these issues, it was appropriate for the State to include an update on this investigation in the Progress Report and we find that the State did so. Contrary to commenters' assertions, the SIP explains that the State will:

    • “[I]nvestigate the impacts that a smoke management plan for wild fires and prescribed burns will have on the 20% most impaired days” within the first planning period of 2013”;

    • Investigate and determine whether the “burning of grass in and around the Class I areas” warrants being covered under a smoke management plan”; and

    • Review IMPROVE data for a recent prescribed fire to see what kind of impact the fire had on the organic carbon mass concentration and to some extent the ammonia sulfide and ammonia nitrate levels.

    Finally, the SIP explains that it is DENR's “intention” to

    [I]nvestigate these prescribed burns as well as other wildfires and planned prescribed burns to determine at what level (e.g., size of burn, distance from the Class I areas, combustible material) should a wildfire or prescribed fire be included in the smoke management plan and what best management practices can be used to minimize their impacts on the 20% most impaired days in the Class I areas. The results of this analysis will be adopted in the Regional Haze State Implementation Plan as part of our long term strategy. DENR will work with the federal land managers, other state agencies, and local governments during the development and implementation of the smoke management plan.29

    29 76 FR 76671 (December 8, 2011).

    Contrary to the commenter's assertions, the Progress Report, as explained in the Regional Haze 5-Year Progress Report NPRM, describes that the State has taken the following steps so far to investigate the impacts of prescribed burns and natural fire on visibility in the first planning period. The impacts of prescribed fires on the 20% most impaired days at Wind Cave were investigated using the IMPROVE data that was presented in their progress report.30

    30 South Dakota Progress Report, Table 3-28, p.31 and Table 3-29, p. 33.

    The State also reviewed IMPROVE data for two recent prescribed fires to see what kind of impact the fires had on the organic carbon mass concentration and to some extent the ammonium sulfide and ammonium nitrate levels. This data shows the impact of two prescribed fires conducted by the National Park Service (NPS) at Wind Cave National Park in 2009 and 2010.31 The two examples of the IMPROVE data that show that the NPS prescribed fires contributed to high levels of both particulate organic mass and elemental carbon on both days.32 Finally, the Progress Report shows that natural fire has been decreasing in its impact.33

    33 South Dakota Progress Report, Table 3-28, p.31 and Table 3-29, pp. 17, 19, 20, 21, 24.

    Furthermore, regarding the State's intention to develop and implement the smoke management plan, since the publication of the NPRM, we learned that the State of South Dakota reconfirmed their intention regarding the smoke management plan,34 as is described in its SIP to participate in a Western States Air Resources Council (WESTAR) smoke management workgroup.

    34 Memo to File EPA-R08-OAR-2017-0672, available in docket.

    Finally, as described in South Dakota's progress report and the NPRM, the State has worked in coordination with Federal Land Managers to mitigate the impacts of prescribed fires. In its Progress Report, the State explains that “DENR and Federal Land Managers in South Dakota have improved coordination and communications over the past few years and plan to continue that effort to help mitigate the impacts of prescribed fires” at Wind Cave and Badlands National Parks.35

    35 South Dakota Progress Report, pp. 41-42, Appendix B, pp. B-2—B-3. At the suggestion of the National Park Service, the DENR also looked at the Fire Emissions Tracking System and noted that it may be a useful tool going forward as the DENR continues to track prescribed fires and their impacts on the Class I areas.

    In conclusion, as explained above, we find the State has provided an adequate description of the status of the State's investigation of smoke management measures. The State has investigated both prescribed fire and wildfire and the impact of fire on the 20% most impaired days at Class I areas, reviewed IMPROVE data, showed continued collaboration with Federal Land Managers, and provided a description of their intention to investigate, develop and implement and a smoke management plan as is described in their SIP. Accordingly, we clarify and confirm our proposed finding that South Dakota has adequately addressed its SIP commitment. III. Final Action

    EPA is finalizing without revisions its proposed approval of South Dakota's January 27, 2016 Progress Report as meeting the applicable regional haze requirements set forth in 40 CFR 51.308(g) and 51.308(h).

    IV. Statutory and Executive Order Reviews

    Under the CAA, the Administrator is required to approve a SIP submission that complies with the provisions of the Act and applicable federal regulations. 42 U.S.C. 7410(k); 40 CFR 52.02(a). Thus, in reviewing SIP submissions, the EPA's role is to approve state choices, provided that they meet the criteria of the CAA. Accordingly, this action merely approves state law as meeting federal requirements and does not impose additional requirements beyond those imposed by state law. For that reason, this action:

    • Is not a “significant regulatory action” subject to review by the Office of Management and Budget under Executive Orders 12866 (58 FR 51735, October 4, 1993) and 13563 (76 FR 3821, January 21, 2011);

    • Is not an Executive Order 13771 (82 FR 9339, February 2, 2017) regulatory action because SIP approvals are exempted under Executive Order 12866;

    • Does not impose an information collection burden under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.);

    • Is certified as not having a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.);

    • Does not contain any unfunded mandate or significantly or uniquely affect small governments, described in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (Pub. L. 104-4);

    • Does not have federalism implications as specified in Executive Order 13132 (64 FR 43255, August 10, 1999);

    • Is not an economically significant regulatory action based on health or safety risks subject to Executive Order 13045 (62 FR 19885, April 23, 1997);

    • Is not a significant regulatory action subject to Executive Order 13211 (66 FR 28355, May 22, 2001);

    • Is not subject to requirements of section 12(d) of the National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act of 1995 (15 U.S.C. 272 note) because application of those requirements would be inconsistent with the CAA; and

    • Does not provide EPA with the discretionary authority to address, as appropriate, disproportionate human health or environmental effects, using practicable and legally permissible methods, under Executive Order 12898 (59 FR 7629, February 16, 1994).

    In addition, the SIP is not approved to apply on any Indian reservation land or in any other area where the EPA or an Indian tribe has demonstrated that a tribe has jurisdiction. In those areas of Indian country, the rule does not have tribal implications and will not impose substantial direct costs on tribal governments or preempt tribal law as specified by Executive Order 13175 (65 FR 67249, November 9, 2000).

    The Congressional Review Act, 5 U.S.C. 801 et seq., as added by the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996, generally provides that before a rule may take effect, the agency promulgating the rule must submit a rule report, which includes a copy of the rule, to each House of the Congress and to the Comptroller General of the United States. The EPA will submit a report containing this action and other required information to the U.S. Senate, the U.S. House of Representatives, and the Comptroller General of the United States prior to publication of the rule in the Federal Register. A major rule cannot take effect until 60 days after it is published in the Federal Register. This action is not a “major rule” as defined by 5 U.S.C. 804(2).

    Under section 307(b)(1) of the CAA, petitions for judicial review of this action must be filed in the United States Court of Appeals for the appropriate circuit by February 1, 2019. Filing a petition for reconsideration by the Administrator of this final rule does not affect the finality of this action for the purposes of judicial review nor does it extend the time within which a petition for judicial review may be filed, and shall not postpone the effectiveness of such rule or action. This action may not be challenged later in proceedings to enforce its requirements. See section 307(b)(2).

    SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

    On January 13, 2017, EPA finalized amendments to the Accidental Release Prevention Requirements for Risk Management Programs under the Clean Air Act, Section 112(r)(7) (RMP Amendments rule; 82 FR 4594). On January 26, 2017, the EPA published an action in the Federal Register that initially delayed the effective date of the RMP Amendments rule for a short period of time (82 FR 8499). The EPA further delayed the effective date of the RMP Amendments rule through additional EPA actions published in the Federal Register on March 16, 2017 and June 14, 2017 (82 FR 13968 and 82 FR 27133, respectively). On August 17, 2018, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit issued its decision vacating the June 14, 2017 rule (82 FR 27133) that had delayed the effective date of the RMP Amendments rule until February 19, 2019. On September 21, 2018, the Court issued its mandate which makes the RMP Amendments rule now effective.

    Section 553(b)(3)(B) of the Administrative Procedure Act, 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(3)(B), provides that, when an agency for good cause finds that public notice and comment procedures are impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to the public interest, the agency may issue a rule without providing notice and an opportunity for public comment. The EPA has determined that there is good cause for making this rule announcing the effectiveness of the RMP Amendments rule final without prior proposal and opportunity for comment because such notice and opportunity for comment is unnecessary.

    Specifically, updating the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) to reflect the requirements of the RMP Amendments rule is a ministerial act. The Court specifically identified as vacated the June 14, 2017 rule that had delayed the effectiveness of the RMP Amendments rule until February 19, 2019. The rule published today simply implements the decision of the Court. Since EPA lacks discretion to do otherwise, it would serve no useful purpose to provide an opportunity for public comment on this issue. The requirements of CAA section 307(d), including the requirement for public comment and a hearing on proposed rulemakings, do not apply to this action because 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(3)(B) applies.

    Moreover, the agency finds that the considerations outlined above to support issuance of this rule without prior notice and comment also provide good cause for making this action effective immediately under section 553(d) of the Administrative Procedure Act (APA), 5 U.S.C. 553(d). Section 553(d) provides in pertinent part that final rules shall not become effective until 30 days after publication in the Federal Register, “except . . . as otherwise provided by the agency for good cause.” The purpose of section 553(d) of the APA is to “give affected parties a reasonable time to adjust their behavior before the final rule takes effect.” Omnipoint Corp. v. FCC, 78 F.3d 620, 630 (DC Cir. 1996); see also United States v. Gavrilovic, 551 F.2d 1099, 1104 (8th Cir. 1977) (quoting legislative history). In determining whether good cause exists to waive the 30-day effective date under the APA, an agency should “balance the necessity for immediate implementation against principles of fundamental fairness which require that all affected persons be afforded a reasonable amount of time to prepare for the effective date of its ruling.” Gavrilovic, 551 F.2d at 1105. Here, the decision of the Court vacating the Delay Rule and the issuance of the mandate have taken the issue of timing out of EPA's control. As noted above, we are simply implementing the Court's mandate by undertaking the ministerial act necessary to update the Code of Federal Regulations. Accordingly, this rule will take effect upon publication in the Federal Register. 5 U.S.C. 553(d).

    Dated: November 21, 2018. Andrew R. Wheeler, Acting Administrator. Accordingly, the rule amending 40 CFR part 68, published at 82 FR 4594 (January 13, 2017), and delayed at 82 FR 8499 (January 26, 2017), 82 FR 13968 (March 16, 2017), and 82 FR 27133 (June 14, 2017), is effective December 3, 2018.

    National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS), National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), Commerce.

    ACTION:

    Final rule.

    SUMMARY:

    This rule revises Federal regulations that currently restrict the use and configuration of bottom and midwater trawl gear for vessels fishing under the Pacific Coast Groundfish Fishery's Trawl Rationalization Program. The revisions implemented through this rule were developed by the Pacific Fishery Management Council to address restrictions that are no longer necessary because of changes to the fishery including implementation of the Trawl Rationalization Program in 2011 and improved status of a number of overfished rockfish stocks. This action will likely increase flexibility in how vessels can use and configure gear to increase access to target stocks and efficiency of fishing practices, while still limiting the catch of target and non-target discards to meet the conservation objectives of the Trawl Rationalization Program.

    DATES:

    This final rule is effective January 1, 2019.

    SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Table of Contents I. Background II. Regulations for Net Configurations III. Requirement To Use Selective Flatfish Trawl Shoreward of the RCA and North of 40°10′ North Latitude IV. Regulations for Vessel Operations V. Comments and Responses VI. Changes From the Proposed Rule VII. Classification I. Background

    Prior to 2011 the Pacific Coast Groundfish fishery was primarily managed with trip and landing limits and area closures, and monitoring was limited (i.e., less than 25 percent of groundfish bottom and midwater trawl trip landings were subject to at-sea observer coverage). During that time NMFS implemented trawl gear restrictions to both reduce groundfish and non-groundfish bycatch and discards, as well as limit access to overfished rockfish habitat. Restrictions included: (1) Minimum mesh size requirements; (2) requirements for chafing gear and codends; (3) the trawl Rockfish Conservation Areas (RCA) in which the use of groundfish bottom trawl gear between certain fathom lines is prohibited, as defined in regulation at §§ 660.71 through 660.74; and, (4) a requirement that vessels use selective flatfish trawl, a type of small footrope trawl gear, shoreward of the trawl RCA and north of 40°10′ North (N) latitude.

    In 2011, NMFS implemented Amendments 20 and 21 to the Pacific Coast Groundfish Fishery Management Plan (PCGFMP), which established the Trawl Rationalization Program. The Trawl Rationalization Program, a type of catch share program, replaced trip and landing limits with fixed allocations for limited entry trawl participants through an individual fishing quota (IFQ) management system. To allow managers to accurately account for catch against IFQ the program increased at-sea and shoreside monitoring to 100 percent of trips and landings for groundfish bottom and midwater trawl vessels. This management system increased individual vessel accountability and successfully reduced bycatch of target and non-target rockfish in the trawl fishery. Since implementation of the Trawl Rationalization Program, five of the seven previously overfished rockfish species are now rebuilt.

    Building on the successes of the Trawl Rationalization Program at reducing discards, NMFS and the Pacific Fishery Management Council (Council) worked with industry members to identify regulations that limit the use and configuration of groundfish bottom and midwater trawl gears, and may no longer be necessary because the Trawl Rationalization Program effectively limits target and non-target species bycatch. Additional discussion of the background and rationale for the Council's development of changes to bottom and midwater trawl gear configuration is included in the proposed rule (83 FR 45396; September 7, 2018) and is not repeated here. Detailed information, including the supporting documentation the Council considered while developing these recommendations, is available at the Council's website, www.pcouncil.org.

    The discussion in this final rule and in the EA/RIR/RFA (see ADDRESSES) groups several related measures to reduce redundancy and to present the collective impacts of similar regulations. This final rule:

    • Adjusts a suite of restrictions related to how nets are configured, including eliminating minimum mesh size restrictions, changing the definition of mesh size, removing chafing gear placement restrictions, and removing restrictions on using double-walled codends from groundfish bottom and midwater trawl vessels fishing under the Trawl Rationalization Program;

    • Removes the requirement to use selective flatfish trawl gear north of 40°10′ N lat. and shoreward of the trawl RCA;

    • Adjusts a number of provisions related to vessel operations on a single fishing trip, including allowing vessels that fish in the Shorebased IFQ Program under the Trawl Rationalization Program to carry and fish groundfish bottom and midwater trawl gears on the same trip, fish across IFQ management lines, and bring a new haul on deck before the catch from a previous haul is stowed.

    II. Regulations for Net Configurations

    This section discusses several regulatory changes that remove some minimum mesh size restrictions, revise the definition of mesh size, remove chafing gear placement restrictions, and remove the prohibition on using double-walled codends for groundfish bottom and midwater trawl vessels fishing under the Trawl Rationalization Program. These measures all relate to net configuration and all affect the mesh size for trawl nets. A description of the existing regulations for net configurations, as well as a summary of the potential impacts of these combined measures, is included in the proposed rule and is not repeated here.

    This final rule removes the minimum mesh size requirement of 4.5 inches (11.4 cm) for groundfish bottom trawl nets and revises the minimum mesh size requirements for midwater trawl gear. Midwater trawl gear nets are no longer required to have a minimum mesh size of 3.0 inches (7.6 cm). However, the Council did not recommend revising the restriction on the minimum mesh size restriction for the first 20 feet (6.51 m) behind the footrope or head-rope for midwater trawl gears because it is essential to the definition of midwater trawl gear. As such, nets must still be configured so that the first 20 feet (6.51 m) immediately behind the footrope or head-rope is constructed with bare ropes or mesh with a minimum size of 16 inches (40.64 cm).

    This final rule redefines minimum mesh size as the smallest distance allowed from opposing knots or corners. In addition, this final rule revises the definition for measuring minimum mesh size to include knotless nets, as well as redefining the approach for measuring mesh size as the opening between opposing corners. These changes will allow NMFS Office of Law Enforcement (OLE) to enforce current mesh size requirements for vessels using midwater trawl nets, which must meet minimum mesh size requirements for the first 20 feet (6.51 m) behind the footrope or head-rope.

    Finally, this final rule eliminates the prohibition on double-walled codends and restrictions on the use of chafing gear. Removing these restrictions will allow vessel operators flexibility in how they use chafing gear to protect nets and codends, fish relative to the seafloor, and strategically use mesh sizes to enhance fishing operations (i.e., herding smaller fish through the net). NMFS anticipates that under these regulations vessel operators will use chafing gear strategically to provide protection in areas where the net can be susceptible to wear. This will allow vessels to extend the life of their nets and ultimately reduce operational costs.

    Eliminating restrictions on groundfish bottom and midwater trawl net configuration allows vessels to experiment with different mesh sizes, chafing gear placement, and use of double-walled codends. The new regulations will allow vessels to reduce the mesh size of their nets and increase net protections to better target semi-pelagic rockfish species or longspine thornyheads.

    III. Requirement To Use Selective Flatfish Trawl Shoreward of the RCA and North of 40°10′ North Latitude

    This final rule adjusts groundfish vessel requirements for using selective flatfish trawl gear. A description of the existing regulations for selective flatfish trawl, as well as a summary of the potential impacts of this measure, is included in the proposed rule and is not repeated here.

    This final rule revises the definition of selective flatfish trawl, a type of small footrope trawl gear, to allow for a two- or four-seamed net with no more than four riblines, while retaining all other existing restrictions related to configuration of this gear including: The breastline may not be longer than 3 feet (0.92 m); there may be no floats along the center third of the headrope or attached to the top panel, except on the riblines; the footrope must be less than 105 feet (32.26 m); the headrope must be no less than 30 percent longer than the footrope; and the headrope is issued along the length of the headrope from the outside edge to the opposite outside edge.

    Revising the definition of selective flatfish trawl to allow for use of a four-seam net will provide for better flow and improved selectivity compared to a two-seam net. A four-seam net has more open meshes for smaller fish to escape. In addition, studies have demonstrated that improved flow within nets improves fishing efficiency, which may increase catch of marketable target groundfish (e.g., widow rockfish, yellowtail rockfish, and Pacific cod), and reduce bycatch of small or unmarketable groundfish (e.g., undersized redstripe rockfish, rosethorn rockfish, sand dabs).

    The final rule also eliminates the requirement that vessels use selective flatfish trawl gear shoreward of the trawl RCA north of 42° N lat. Instead, trawl vessels are allowed to use any type of small footrope trawl gear, including selective flatfish trawl gear, shoreward of the trawl RCA north of 42° N lat. Large footrope trawl gear will still be prohibited shoreward of the trawl RCA. This final rule does not make any changes to the requirement to use selective flatfish trawl gear between 40°10′ N lat. and 42° N lat. Vessels that choose to fish groundfish bottom trawl gear in this area are required to use selective flatfish trawl gear. Fishing with small footrope trawl gear, other than selective flatfish trawl gear, is prohibited between 40°10′ N lat. and 42° N lat.

    As described in the proposed rule for this action, the Council recommended that NMFS remove the requirement to use selective flatfish trawl gear north of 40°10′ N lat. and replace it with a requirement to use small footrope trawl gear. However, NMFS determined that the Council's recommended changes to the selective flatfish trawl gear requirement shoreward of the trawl RCA between 42° N lat. and 40°10′ N lat. are out of compliance with the terms and conditions of the December 2017 Salmon Incidental Take Statement. Term and Condition 4b requires that “prior to allowing additional non-whiting trawling south 42° N lat., NMFS will implement one or more exempted fishing permits (EFPs) designed to collect information about Chinook and coho bycatch levels and stock composition from fishing in those areas or at those times for a minimum of three years.” Because the area shoreward of the trawl RCA between 42° N lat. and 40°10′ N lat. was not part of the exemption to the selective flatfish trawl gear requirement in the 2017 and 2018 EFPs, which was the Council's recommendation, NMFS cannot make changes to restrictions in this area that could result in additional non-whiting trawling effort. NMFS notified the Council of this preliminary determination at its September 2018 meeting in Seattle, Washington.

    NMFS does support the continued use of EFPs to obtain data on potential impacts of changing the selective flatfish trawl gear requirement between 42° N lat. and 40°10′ N lat. This information would help inform any future regulatory changes the Council recommends for this area and gear type.

    IV. Regulations for Vessel Operations

    This section discusses the three regulatory changes that relate to vessel operations on a single fishing trip including allowing vessels that fish in the Shorebased IFQ Program under the Trawl Rationalization Program to carry and fish groundfish bottom and midwater trawl gears on the same trip, fish across IFQ management lines, and bring a new haul on deck before the catch from a previous haul is stowed. A description of the existing regulations for vessel operators, as well as a summary of the potential impacts of these combined measures, is included in the proposed rule and is not repeated here.

    The groundfish regulations define four trawl gear types (large footrope trawl, small footrope trawl, selective flatfish trawl, and midwater trawl), as well as where and when vessels may carry those trawl gear types. Under the revised regulations in this final rule, vessels fishing north of 40°10′ N lat. may not have both groundfish trawl gear and non-groundfish trawl gear on board simultaneously, but vessels fishing in the Shorebased IFQ Program will be allowed to carry multiple trawl gear types (groundfish bottom or midwater trawl gear) on board simultaneously. A vessel may have more than one type of small footrope bottom trawl gear on board (selective flatfish trawl or small footrope trawl gear) either simultaneously or successively during a trip limit period, with one exception. Only a selective flatfish trawl is allowed onboard when fishing shoreward of the trawl RCA between 42° N lat. and 40°10′ N lat. Finally, a vessel may have more than one type of midwater groundfish trawl gear on board, either simultaneously or successively, during a cumulative trip limit period. South of 40°10′ N lat., a vessel may not have both groundfish trawl gear and non-groundfish trawl gear on board simultaneously; however, they may have both bottom trawl gear and midwater trawl gear on board simultaneously or any type of small footrope trawl gear, including selective flatfish trawl gear, simultaneously or successively.

    This final rule eliminates the prohibition on using multiple types of groundfish trawl gears (bottom and midwater trawl gear) on the same trip for vessels fishing in the Trawl Rationalization Program's IFQ Program. Allowing the use of multiple trawl gears during a single trip reduces the complexity in the regulations and will improve economic efficiency and safety at sea by reducing the number of trips and days at sea.

    Vessels fishing with multiple types of groundfish trawl gear are required to keep and land all catch separately by gear type, and catch must be reported on electronic fish tickets by gear type (i.e., midwater or bottom trawl). Vessels are not required to keep catch separate by haul. This rule does not adjust the current provision that requires vessels to stow any gear not authorized for use in the area when transiting through a groundfish conservation area. For species managed with trip limits, crossover provisions, or gear-specific trip limits, all current regulations would remain in effect.

    This final rule also modifies recordkeeping and reporting requirements for vessels fishing in the Shorebased IFQ Program that choose to use more than one type of groundfish trawl gear on the same trip. These vessels are required to make a new gear declaration to indicate that they have chosen to fish with a new gear type (i.e., groundfish bottom trawl vs. midwater trawl). Previously, the regulations only allowed vessels to declare one type of trawl gear at a time when fishing in the Trawl Rationalization Program, and vessel operators were required to make the declaration for each trip prior to leaving port. The final rule revises the regulations so that vessel operators in the Shorebased IFQ Program that choose to use multiple groundfish trawl gears on the same trip may adjust their gear declarations from sea and do not need to return to port to do so. Vessel operators are required to make a new declaration any time they switch to a gear other than the gear that was previously declared. This allows for the continued monitoring and enforcement of gear-specific closed areas. Allowing vessels the flexibility to use and carry multiple trawl gears onboard the vessel will reduce costs to operators by reducing daily fuel and observer coverage costs.

    This final rule eliminates both the existing prohibition on bringing a haul on board before the previous haul has been stowed and the requirement to stow all catch before catch from a new haul is brought on board. Vessels may now bring a new haul on board before the previous haul has been stowed and will not be required to stow all catch before the catch from a new haul is brought on board. Vessels are still required to keep catch from separate hauls until the observer has completed all haul-specific sampling protocols and has allowed the hauls to be mixed. Vessels will also still be required to allow observers and catch monitors to carry out all required duties without interference to ensure continued accurate monitoring and reporting of catch. This ensures availability of quality data for catch at-sea and landings which are used to manage the fishery in season and to assess the stocks and develop catch limits and harvest guidelines. Vessels fishing with electronic monitoring are required to keep catch from different hauls separate on deck until fully documented according to protocols established in the specific vessel's monitoring plan. All vessels are required to land any catch by gear type if it was caught using different gears separated by gear type.

    This final rule also eliminates the prohibition on fishing in multiple IFQ management areas on the same trip or tow, for vessels fishing in the Shorebased IFQ Program. These vessels are allowed to fish in multiple IFQ management areas on the same trip and the same haul, and catch does not need to be sorted by area. Vessel operators will be responsible for recording the number of hauls that took place in which IFQ management area. Catch will then be assigned to an area and quota pounds will be deducted from vessel accounts based on the proportion of hauls in a given management area. For example, if six hauls were taken in one IFQ management area, and two hauls were taken in another management area, the total catch would be apportioned to management areas by a 6 to 2 ratio. For any hauls that took place across management lines, catch would be apportioned 50 percent to each area. Therefore, if six hauls were taken in one management area, two hauls taken in another management area, and one haul taken across management areas, the total catch would be apportioned to management areas by a 6.5 to 2.5 ratio.

    Vessel operators are expected to use the flexibility to create an efficient fishing strategy that best limits bycatch of non-target and protected species while still maximizing catch of their target species. Vessels would maximize attainment of IFQ by carrying and fishing with both midwater and groundfish bottom trawl gear on the same trip. Eliminating regulations that manage vessel operations may have some potential negative impacts to processors, observers, and managers, but these are likely to be limited and may even decrease over time as operations adjust to the changes.

    V. Comments and Responses

    NMFS received seven comment letters from private citizens during the comment period for the proposed rule. All of the comments raised similar issues regarding the potential for these gear changes to negatively impact previously overfished rockfish stocks and their habitat, and the potential for the changes to increase salmon bycatch. Only comments relevant to measures considered in the proposed rule are summarized and addressed below. Comments related to other fishery actions, general fishery management, or unrelated to fisheries are not addressed here. All public comment letters can be viewed, along with the proposed and final rules for this action, at www.regulations.gov.

    Comment 1: Please withhold changes to gear restrictions until salmon stocks have had a chance to rebuild. These gear changes will likely increase bycatch of Chinook salmon.

    Response: While NMFS shares the commenter's concerns over any action that could increase bycatch of Chinook salmon, the analysis for this action does not support the conclusion that removing these restrictions and requirements would result in additional bycatch beyond what already occurs in this fishery. Over the past two years NMFS has permitted more than 40 vessels annually to test whether removing these requirements or prohibitions would result in additional bycatch of Chinook and coho salmon. These vessels have completed more than 200 EFP trips. Based on the analysis of this EFP information, changes that have occurred within the fishery over the past several years, and the analysis in the December 2017 biological opinion, NMFS has determined that changes to mesh size, removing restrictions on codends and chafing gear, and removing restrictions on vessel operations is unlikely to result in additional impacts to Chinook salmon. With regards to removal of the selective flatfish trawl gear requirement, impacts to Chinook salmon are unlikely to increase from this action in the area north of 42° N lat. (the southern boundary of the 2017 and 2018 Trawl Gear EFPs). However, impacts to Chinook salmon resulting this action are less certain in the area between 42° N lat. and 40°10′ N lat.

    NMFS discussed uncertainty around potential impacts to Chinook salmon in the area between 42° N lat. and 40°10′ N lat. in the proposed rule, particularly when considering the removal of the requirement to use selective flatfish trawl gear, because this area was not included in the 2017 or 2018 EFPs. Therefore, as mentioned above in Section III, NMFS is only removing the prohibition on using any small footrope trawl gear besides selective flatfish trawl gear for the area north of 42° N lat. No changes to regulations requiring the use of selective flatfish trawl gear will be implemented for the area between 42° N lat. and 40°10′ N lat., where impacts to salmon are less certain.

    Additionally, unlike in previous years, NMFS is proposing through the proposed rule for the 2019-2020 harvest specifications and management measures (83 FR 47416, September 19, 2018), to establish hard caps for Chinook salmon established in the 2017 Salmon Biological Opinion. If implemented, NMFS will have a mechanism available in regulation that may be used to close the non-whiting and/or whiting fisheries if the bycatch of Chinook salmon exceeds or is projected to exceed the thresholds for those fisheries. Finally, NMFS continues to work with the Council to develop any management measures needed to address any unexpected high bycatch of Chinook or coho salmon in the groundfish fisheries.

    Comment 2: The proposed regulations do not acknowledge the potential for rockfish habitats to be destroyed with little chance of rehabilitation.

    Response: In developing the EA for this action NMFS considered potential impacts to the physical environment, which includes important habitats for rockfish species, and determined that impacts to the physical environment from this action are likely to be negligible to low for the several reasons. First, the regulatory revisions do not change any areas that are currently closed to fishing, such as essential fish habitat conservation areas (EFHCAs) designed to protect sensitive habitat from bottom contact gear. NMFS expects there may be increased effort shoreward of the trawl RCA and north of 42° N latitude by vessels fishing without selective flatfish trawl gear. However, NMFS expects this effort would likely only occur with groundfish bottom trawl over soft-bottom habitat or with pelagic trawls fished off the ocean floor and in the water column away from any high relief structures that could damage fishing nets. Finally, the regulatory revisions do not change small footrope requirements for groundfish bottom trawl shoreward of the RCA. This small footrope requirement provides a strong disincentive for harvesters to fish with bottom trawl over high-relief habitat. Therefore, based on this analysis, NMFS determined that the revised regulations will not result in additional impacts to the physical environments.

    Comment 3: Eliminating the mesh and net size requirements would potentially increase the incentive for vessels to use larger equipment, which could increase the likelihood for overfishing. Rockfish are especially vulnerable to overfishing.

    Response: Eliminating regulations that restrict the configuration and use of the nets would not affect the size of the gear used. Requirements affecting rope size will still be in place. Additionally, trawl nets are often limited by the size of the vessel and the ability of the vessel to pull the net. None of the revisions implemented through this final rule will change any of the vessel size restrictions for limited entry permits in the groundfish fishery.

    In regard to overfishing, NMFS agrees that rockfish can be susceptible to overfishing because many species do not begin to reproduce until they are 5-20 years old, and very few of their young survive to adulthood. In addition, many species can live more than 100 years (e.g, yelloweye rockfish). However, NMFS and the Council are obligated under National Standard 1 to ensure that conservation and management measures, including those implemented through this final rule, prevent overfishing while also providing an opportunity for industry to harvest catch. NMFS and the Council have worked diligently over the past 15 years to conservatively manage species in order to rebuild seven previously overfished rockfish stocks. There are only two stocks (i.e., yelloweye rockfish and cowcod) that remain in rebuilding plans, and both are projected to rebuild ahead of schedule. The Trawl Rationalization Program has proven to be an effective management system for groundfish fisheries because it increases individual vessel accountability and ensures full catch accounting for all stocks. NMFS and the Council will continue to use the management tools available through that program to protect rockfish stocks from overfishing while also providing economic opportunities for West Coast communities.

    Comment 4: Eliminating the mesh size requirements will result in increased unwanted bycatch, discards, and the increased mortality of small or young fish. Allowing this will reverse the Trawl Rationalization Program's longstanding success.

    Response: The Trawl Rationalization Program has been successful in addressing the NMFS and Council's responsibilities under the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation Act (MSA) and the National Standards, in particular National Standard 1 guideline responsibilities for preventing overfishing, and National Standard 8 responsibilities to reduce bycatch to the extent practicable. Consistent with requirements under MSA, NMFS will continue to support development of actions that continue this success. As discussed in additional detail in the proposed rule, the continued success of the program relies on the use of an individual quota management system, which provides a disincentive for vessels to target small fish or reduce the mesh size of the net so as to catch more small fish. These undersized fish are not marketable and harvesters would have to use their quota pounds to cover the catch. One hundred percent at-sea monitoring, either with human observers or electronic monitoring, is required by all groundfish trawl vessels and ensures against vessels discarding unwanted or unmarketable catch without first recording the information. Additionally, reducing mesh size increases drag on the net which can reduce the efficiency of the fishing practices and also serves as a disincentive.

    The purpose of eliminating the mesh size restrictions is not to incentivize the catch of small fish. It is intended to allow vessel operators the ability to address concerns about gilled fish (fish stuck in the net) and to use different mesh sizes to attach excluders and chafing gear, or heard smaller fish through the net and out the codend. This will ultimately have a limited positive impact for vessel operators. NMFS and the Council will make every effort to continue the successful management of the Trawl Rationalization Program.

    Comment 5: Allowing vessels to use multiple types of groundfish trawl gear on the same trip will threaten the quality of stock assessments.

    Response: There is a potential to impact stock assessments by allowing vessels to use multiple types of groundfish trawl gear to be fished on the same trip, and allowing vessels to fish in multiple IFQ management areas on the same trip and haul. However, NMFS is implementing mitigation measures, such as sorting and haul tabulation requirements, to ensure that the impacts to stock assessments will be low. The Council and its advisory bodies, including the Groundfish Management Team, the Groundfish Advisory Subpanel, and the Scientific and Statistical Committee (SSC), had extensive discussion on the potential issues that could arise from revising these regulations. The SSC spoke specifically to the risk that co-mingling of total catch could result in greater uncertainty in data used in stock assessments because gear-specific and area-specific catch, as well as effort per trip would be unknown, and species-specific selectivity varies among gear types. However, the SSC reported that the sorting requirements (catch must be separate by gear type) and the haul tabulation requirements (number of hauls by area must be recorded) could alleviate the potential impacts on data for stock assessments. Additionally, recording the number of hauls should allow for an accurate assessment of catch location.

    Comment 6: The proposed rule appears to state that the purpose of removing the prohibition on the use of chafing gear is to extend the life of nets and ultimately reduce operational costs. This purpose is distinct from the purpose stated in the summary of the proposed rule, namely increasing flexibility while still limiting the catch of target and non-target species.

    Response: The intent of the entire package of proposed measures is to increase flexibility while still limiting the catch of target and non-target species. As stated in the proposed rule, removing the restrictions on chafing gear will increase flexibility in how vessel operators attach their chafing gear to both protect the net and increase fishing efficiency. When implemented in the mid-1990s, the original restrictions on chafing gear were introduced to ensure that chafing gear was not used to effectively reduce the mesh size of the net. When discussing the elimination of the restrictions on net configurations, the Council considered the flexibility vessel operators would have through elimination of the minimum mesh size requirements, and how that flexibility would be limited if restrictions on codends and chafing gear were not also revised. In developing these measures on net configuration, vessel operators sought the flexibility to configure their nets strategically with different mesh sizes and chafing gear panels to optimize fishing operations by reducing operational costs (i.e., reduction in net replacement costs) and increasing fishing efficiency (i.e., herding of smaller fish). As described in the proposed rule and elsewhere in this preamble, the provisions of the Trawl Rationalization Program will continue to limit catch of target and non-target species.

    Comment 7: A full environmental impact statement (EIS) is necessary to consider alternative approaches and designs that could serve the needs of NMFS while protecting marine life.

    Response: NMFS originally published a notice of intent (NOI) to prepare an EIS in the Federal Register on March 3, 2016 (81 FR 11189), in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) to analyze the impacts on the human environment resulting from changes to gear requirements for groundfish bottom trawl and midwater trawl gear in the Trawl Rationalization Program. NMFS accepted public comments on the NOI from March 3, 2016, to April 4, 2016.

    Upon completion of the analysis for the action, NMFS determined that the impacts associated with implementing the action would not be significant and, therefore, there would be no need to complete an EIS. Instead, NMFS completed an EA for the proposed action, in compliance with NEPA. NMFS withdrew the NOI to prepare an EIS on June 8, 2018 (83 FR 22640).

    VI. Changes From the Proposed Rule

    The proposed rule for this action contained all the measures that the Pacific Fishery Management Council recommended, including a measure that would eliminate the requirement to use selective flatfish trawl gear north of 40°10′ N lat. and shoreward of the trawl RCA, and replace it with a small footrope trawl gear requirement. The proposed rule also highlighted NMFS' concerns that the removal of the requirement to use selective flatfish trawl gear shoreward of the trawl RCA between 40°10′ N lat. and 42° N lat. may be inconsistent with the terms and conditions of the 2017 Salmon Biological Opinion.

    After consideration of public comment we preliminarily determined that, in order to maintain consistency with the 2017 Salmon Biological Opinion, it was only appropriate to remove the selective flatfish trawl requirement north of 42° N lat. This final rule would implement a revised version of the regulation put forward in the proposed rule, and would maintain the selective flatfish trawl requirement between 40°10′ N lat. and 42° N lat. Vessels fishing in the area between 40°10′ N lat. and 42° N lat. would be required to use selective flatfish trawl gear in a two- or four-seam net. North of 42° N lat., vessels would be allowed to fish with any type of small footrope trawl gear, including selective flatfish trawl gear.

    VII. Classification

    Pursuant to section 304(b)(1)(A) of the Magnuson-Stevens Act, the NMFS Assistant Administrator has determined that this action is consistent with the Pacific Coast Groundfish FMP, other provisions of the Magnuson-Stevens Act, and other applicable law.

    The Office of Management and Budget has determined that this final rule is not significant for purposes of Executive Order 12866.

    This final rule does not contain policies with Federalism or “takings” implications as those terms are defined in E.O. 13132 and E.O. 12630, respectively.

    The Chief Counsel for Regulation of the Department of Commerce certified to the Chief Counsel for Advocacy of the Small Business Administration during the proposed rule stage that this action would not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. The factual basis for the certification was published in the proposed rule and is not repeated here. No comments were received regarding this certification. As a result, a regulatory flexibility analysis was not required and none was prepared.

    This action contains a change to an information collection requirement, which has been approved by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) under OMB Control Number 0648-0573: Expanded Vessel Monitoring System Requirement for the Pacific Groundfish Fishery. The regulatory change, which was described in section IV of this final rule, would allow vessel operators who fish in the Shorebased IFQ Program to make a new declaration from sea when a new gear fished on a trip. This revision removes the requirement that vessels return to port to make a new declaration. The numbers of declaration reports the vessel operator is required to submit to NMFS would not change under this request. Therefore, no small entity would be subject to additional reporting requirements.

    Pursuant to Executive Order 13175, this final rule was developed after meaningful collaboration with tribal officials from the area covered by the FMP. Consistent with the Magnuson-Stevens Act at 16 U.S.C. 1852(b)(5), one of the voting members of the Council is a representative of an Indian tribe with federally recognized fishing rights from the area of the Council's jurisdiction.

    NMFS finds good cause to waive the 30-day delay in effectiveness pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3), so that this final rule may become effective January 1, 2019. Each of these revisions to groundfish regulations in this rule would remove restrictions that are no longer necessary due to implementation of the Trawl Rationalization Program, create more efficient and safe harvesting practices, and allow vessel operators to better attain species that are currently under attained without causing any additional impacts on the fishery. NMFS was unable to finalize these regulations sooner because of the need to include data in the analysis for this action from the 2018 trawl gear exempted fishing permit which was not available until May 2018.

    Delaying the implementation of these revisions would reduce the benefits that they would provide to the industry and could cause confusion for vessel operators. For example, trawl vessels average between 10 and 20 days spent annually traveling back and forth to port to change gear types. Reducing restrictions on how they operate their vessels, including carrying multiple types of trawl gear onboard, vessel operators may be able to substantially reduce or eliminate the number of days spent traveling back and forth to port to change gears, resulting in financial savings and increased safety. Delays in implementing these revisions would reduce those financial savings and require vessels to continue more dangerous fishing practices. The revisions to regulations described in the preamble of this document affect commercial fisheries in Washington, Oregon and California. These revisions have been requested by members of industry, and were recommended to NMFS by the Council. No aspect of this action is controversial.

    List of Subjects in 50 CFR Part 660

    Fisheries, Fishing, and Indian Fisheries.

    Dated: November 28, 2018. Samuel D. Rauch III, Deputy Assistant Administrator for Regulatory Programs, National Marine Fisheries Service.

    For the reasons set out in the preamble, 50 CFR part 660 is amended as follows:

The operator of any vessel registered to a limited entry permit must provide NMFS OLE with a declaration report, as specified at paragraph (d)(4)(iv) of this section, before the vessel leaves port on a trip in which the vessel is used to fish in U.S. ocean waters between 0 and 200 nm offshore of Washington, Oregon, or California.

    (i) Limited entry trawl vessels fishing in the Shorebased IFQ Program must provide NMFS OLE with a new declaration report each time a different groundfish trawl gear (bottom or midwater only) is fished. The declaration may be made from sea and must be made to NMFS before a different type (bottom or midwater only) of groundfish trawl gear is fished.

    (ii) [Reserved]

    (2) Declaration reports for all vessels using non-groundfish trawl gear. The operator of any vessel that is not registered to a limited entry permit and which uses non-groundfish trawl gear to fish in the EEZ (3-200 nm offshore), must provide NMFS OLE with a declaration report, as specified at paragraph (d)(4)(iv) of this section, before the vessel leaves port to fish in the EEZ.

    (3) Declaration reports for open access vessels using non trawl gear (all types of open access gear other than non-groundfish trawl gear). The operator of any vessel that is not registered to a limited entry permit, must provide NMFS with a declaration report, as specified at paragraph (d)(4)(iv) of this section, before the vessel leaves port on a trip in which the vessel is used to take and retain or possess groundfish in the EEZ or land groundfish taken in the EEZ.

    (4) Declaration reports. (i) The operator of a vessel specified in paragraphs (d)(1), (d)(2), and (d)(3) of this section must provide a declaration report to NMFS OLE prior to leaving port on the first trip in which the vessel meets the requirement specified at § 660.14(b) to have a VMS.

    (ii) A declaration report will be valid until another declaration report revising the existing gear or fishery declaration is received by NMFS OLE. The vessel operator must send a new declaration report when:

    (A) A gear type that is different from the gear type most recently declared for the vessel will be used, or

    (B) A vessel will fish in a fishery other than the fishery most recently declared.

    (iii) During the period of time that a vessel has a valid declaration report on file with NMFS OLE, it cannot fish with a gear other than a gear type declared by the vessel or fish in a fishery other than the fishery most recently declared.

    (iv) Declaration reports will include: The vessel name and/or identification number, the gear type, and the fishery (as defined in paragraph (d)(4)(iv)(A) of this section).

    (A) One of the following gear types or sectors must be declared:

    (1) Limited entry fixed gear, not including Shorebased IFQ Program,

    (2) Limited entry groundfish non-trawl, Shorebased IFQ Program,

    (3) Limited entry midwater trawl, non-whiting Shorebased IFQ Program,

    (4) Limited entry midwater trawl, Pacific whiting Shorebased IFQ Program,

    (5) Limited entry midwater trawl, Pacific whiting catcher/processor sector,

    (6) Limited entry midwater trawl, Pacific whiting mothership sector (catcher vessel or mothership),

    (7) Limited entry bottom trawl, Shorebased IFQ Program, not including demersal trawl,

    (8) Limited entry demersal trawl, Shorebased IFQ Program,

    (B) [Reserved]

    (v) Upon receipt of a declaration report, NMFS will provide a confirmation code or receipt to confirm that a valid declaration report was received for the vessel. Vessel owners or operators are responsible for retaining the confirmation code or receipt to verify that a valid declaration report was filed.

    4. In § 660.25, revise paragraph (b)(4)(vii)(C) to read as follows:
    § 660.25 Permits.

    (b) * * *

    (4) * * *

    (vii) * * *

    (C) Limited entry MS permits and limited entry permits with an MS/CV or a C/P endorsement. Limited entry MS permits and limited entry permits with an MS/CV or a C/P endorsement may be registered to another vessel up to two times during the calendar year as long as the second change in vessel registration is back to the original vessel. The original vessel is either the vessel registered to the permit as of January 1, or if no vessel is registered to the permit as of January 1, the original vessel is the first vessel to which the permit is registered after January 1. After the original vessel has been established, the first change in vessel registration would be to another vessel, but any second change in vessel registration must be back to the original vessel. For an MS/CV-endorsed permit on the second change in vessel registration back to the original vessel, that vessel must be used to fish exclusively in the MS Coop Program described § 660.150 for the remainder of the calendar year, and declare in to the limited entry mid water trawl, Pacific whiting mothership sector as specified at § 660.13(d)(4)(iv).

    5. In § 660.60, revise paragraphs (h)(7) introductory text, (h)(7)(i) introductory text, (h)(7)(ii)(A), (h)(7)(ii)(B)(1) introductory text, and (h)(7)(ii)(B)(2) to read as follows:
    § 660.60 Specifications and management measures.

    (h) * * *

    (7) Crossover provisions. Crossover provisions apply to three activities: Fishing on different sides of a management line, fishing in both the limited entry and open access fisheries, or fishing in both the Shorebased IFQ Program and the limited entry fixed gear fishery. Fishery-specific crossover provisions can be found in subparts D through F of this part.

    (i) Fishing in management areas with different trip limits. Trip limits for a species or a species group may differ in different management areas along the coast. The following crossover provisions apply to vessels fishing in different geographical areas that have different cumulative or “per trip” trip limits for the same species or species group, with the following exceptions. Such crossover provisions do not apply to: IFQ species (defined at § 660.140(c), subpart D) for vessels that are declared into the Shorebased IFQ Program (see § 660.13(d)(4)(iv)(A), for valid Shorebased IFQ Program declarations); species that are subject only to daily trip limits; or to trip limits for black rockfish off Washington, as described at §§ 660.230(e) and 660.330(e).

    (ii) * * *

    (A) Fishing in limited entry and open access fisheries with different trip limits. Open access trip limits apply to any fishing conducted with open access gear, even if the vessel has a valid limited entry permit with an endorsement for another type of gear. Except such provisions do not apply to IFQ species (defined at § 660.140(c), subpart D) for vessels that are declared into the Shorebased IFQ Program (see § 660.13(d)(4)(iv)(A) for valid Shorebased IFQ Program declarations). A vessel that fishes in both the open access and limited entry fisheries is not entitled to two separate trip limits for the same species. If a vessel has a limited entry permit registered to it at any time during the trip limit period and uses open access gear, but the open access limit is smaller than the limited entry limit, the open access limit may not be exceeded and counts toward the limited entry limit. If a vessel has a limited entry permit registered to it at any time during the trip limit period and uses open access gear, but the open access limit is larger than the limited entry limit, the smaller limited entry limit applies, even if taken entirely with open access gear.

    (B) * * *

    (1) Vessel registered to a limited entry trawl permit. To fish with open access gear, defined at § 660.11, a vessel registered to a limited entry trawl permit must make the appropriate fishery declaration, as specified at § 660.13(d)(4)(iv)(A). In addition, a vessel registered to a limited entry trawl permit must remove the permit from their vessel, as specified at § 660.25(b)(4)(vi), unless the vessel will be fishing in the open access fishery under one of the following declarations specified at § 660.13(d):

    (2) Vessel registered to a limited entry fixed gear permit(s). To fish with open access gear, defined at § 660.11, subpart C, a vessel registered to a limit entry fixed gear permit must make the appropriate open access declaration, as specified at § 660.13(d)(4)(iv)(A). Vessels registered to a sablefish-endorsed permit(s) fishing in the sablefish primary season (described at § 660.231, subpart E) may only fish with the gear(s) endorsed on their sablefish-endorsed permit(s) against those limits.

    6. In § 660.112, revise paragraphs (b)(1)(vii), (b)(1)(xi), (b)(1)(xii)(A), (c)(4), and (e)(4) to read as follows:
    § 660.112 Trawl fishery—prohibitions.

    (b) * * *

    (1) * * *

    (vii) For vessels fishing with multiple trawl gear types on a single trip, fail to keep catch from different trawl gears separate and land the catch separately by gear type.

    (xi) Mix catch from different hauls before all sampling and monitoring requirements for the hauls have been met.

    (xii) * * *

    (A) A vessel that is 75-ft (23-m) or less LOA that harvests Pacific whiting and, in addition to heading and gutting, cuts the tail off and freezes the whiting, is not considered to be a C/P vessel nor is it considered to be processing fish, and

    (c) * * *

    (4) Catch, take, or harvest fish in the MS Coop Program with a vessel that does not have a valid VMS declaration for limited entry midwater trawl, Pacific whiting mothership sector, as specified at § 660.13(d)(4)(iv)(A), subpart C.

    (e) * * *

    (4) Fish in the C/P Coop Program with a vessel that does not have a valid VMS declaration for limited entry midwater trawl, Pacific whiting catcher/processor sector, as specified at § 660.13(d)(4)(iv)(A).

    7. In § 660.113, revise paragraph (b)(3) to read as follows:
    § 660.113 Trawl fishery-recordkeeping and reporting.

    (b) * * *

    (3) Gear switching declaration. Any person with a limited entry trawl permit participating in the Shorebased IFQ Program using groundfish non-trawl gear (i.e., gear switching) must submit a valid gear declaration reporting such participation as specified in § 660.13(d)(4)(iv)(A).

    8. In § 660.130: a. Remove paragraphs (b)(1), (b)(2), and (b)(3)(iii); b. Redesignate paragraphs (b)(3) and (b)(4) as (b)(1) and (b)(2), respectively; c. Revise the newly redesignated paragraphs (b)(1)(ii)(A) and (b)(2); d. Revise paragraphs (c)(1), (c)(2), (c)(3)(ii), (c)(4)(i)(A), (c)(4)(i)(B), (c)(4)(i)(D) and (E), (c)(4)(ii)(A) and (B), (d)(2)(ii), (e) introductory text, (e)(4)(ii), and (e)(4)(iv).

    The revisions read as follows:

    § 660.130 Trawl fishery—management measures.

    (b) * * *

    (1) * * *

    (ii) * * *

    (A) Selective flatfish trawl gear. Selective flatfish trawl gear is a type of small footrope trawl gear. The selective flatfish trawl net must be either a two-seamed or four-seamed net with no more than four riblines, excluding the codend. The breastline may not be longer than 3 ft (0.92 m) in length. There may be no floats along the center third of the headrope or attached to the top panel except on the riblines. The footrope must be less than 105 ft (32.26 m) in length. The headrope must be not less than 30 percent longer than the footrope. The headrope shall be measured along the length of the headrope from the outside edge to the opposite outside edge. An explanatory diagram of a selective flatfish trawl net is provided as Figure 1 of part 660, subpart D.

    (2) Midwater (pelagic or off-bottom) trawl gear. Midwater trawl gear must have unprotected footropes at the trawl mouth, and must not have rollers, bobbins, tires, wheels, rubber discs, or any similar device anywhere on any part of the net. The footrope of midwater gear may not be enlarged by encircling it with chains or by any other means. Ropes or lines running parallel to the footrope of midwater trawl gear must be bare and may not be suspended with chains or any other materials. Sweep lines, including the bottom leg of the bridle, must be bare. For at least 20 ft (6.15 m) immediately behind the footrope or headrope, bare ropes or mesh of 16-inch (40.6-cm) minimum mesh size must completely encircle the net.

    (c) * * *

    (1) Fishing with large footrope trawl gear. It is unlawful for any vessel using large footrope gear to fish for groundfish shoreward of the RCAs defined at paragraph (e)(4) of this section and at §§ 660.70 through 660.74, subpart C. The use of large footrope gear is allowed seaward of the RCAs coastwide.

    (2) Fishing with small footrope trawl gear. The use of small footrope bottom trawl gear is allowed in all areas where bottom trawling is allowed with the following requirements:

    (i) Fishing with selective flatfish trawl gear. The use of selective flatfish trawl gear, a type of small footrope trawl gear, is allowed in all areas where bottom trawling is allowed and is required shoreward of the trawl RCA between 42° North latitude and 40°10′ North latitude.

    (ii) The use of small footrope trawl, other than selective flatfish trawl gear, is prohibited between 42° North latitude and 40°10′ North latitude.

    (iii) The use small footrope trawl, other than of selective flatfish trawl gear, is required inside the Klamath River Salmon Conservation Zone (defined at § 660.131(c)(1)) and the Columbia River Salmon Conservation Zone (defined at § 660.131(c)(2)).

    (3) * * *

    (ii) South of 40°10′ N lat., midwater groundfish trawl gear is prohibited within and shoreward of the RCA boundaries (see § 660.130(e)(4)(i)) and allowed seaward of the RCA boundaries.

    (4) * * *

    (i) * * *

    (A) A vessel may not have both groundfish trawl gear and non-groundfish trawl gear onboard simultaneously. A vessel may not have both selective flatfish trawl gear and any other type of small footrope trawl gear onboard simultaneously.

    (B) If a vessel fishes exclusively with large or small footrope trawl gear during an entire cumulative limit period, the vessel is subject to the cumulative limits for that gear.

    (D) If more than one type of groundfish bottom trawl gear (selective flatfish, large footrope, or small footrope) is on board, either simultaneously or successively, at any time during a cumulative limit period, then the most restrictive cumulative limit associated with the groundfish bottom trawl gear on board during that cumulative limit period applies for the entire cumulative limit period.

    (E) If a vessel fishes both north and south of 40°10′ N lat. with any type of small or large footrope gear onboard the vessel at any time during the cumulative limit period, the most restrictive trip limit associated with the gear on board applies for that trip and will count toward the cumulative limit for that gear (See crossover provisions at § 660.60(h)(7)).

    (ii) * * *

    (A) A vessel may not have both groundfish trawl gear and non-groundfish trawl gear onboard simultaneously.

    (B) If a vessel fishes both north and south of 40°10′ N lat. with any type of small or large footrope gear onboard the vessel at any time during the cumulative limit period, the most restrictive cumulative limit associated with the gear on board would apply for that trip and all catch would be counted toward that cumulative limit (See crossover provisions at § 660.60(h)(7)).

    (d) * * *

    (2) * * *

    (ii) Catcher vessels. All catch must be sorted by the gear types declared in accordance with § 660.13(d), and to the species groups specified in paragraph (d)(1) of this section for vessels with limited entry permits, except those vessels retaining all catch during a Shorebased IFQ trip (i.e., maximized retention trips). The catch must not be discarded from the vessel and the vessel must not mix catch from hauls until the observer has sampled the catch. Catch separated by trawl gear type must be landed separately by trawl gear type. Prohibited species must be sorted according to the following species groups: Dungeness crab, Pacific halibut, Chinook salmon, other salmon. Non-groundfish species must be sorted as required by the state of landing.

    (e) Groundfish conservation areas (GCAs) applicable to trawl vessels. A GCA, a type of closed area, is a geographic area defined by coordinates expressed in degrees of latitude and longitude. The latitude and longitude coordinates of the GCA boundaries are specified at §§ 660.70 through 660.74. If a vessel is fishing within a GCA listed in this paragraph (e) using trawl gear authorized for use within a GCA, all prohibited gear: must be stowed below deck; or, if the gear cannot readily be moved, must be stowed in a secured and covered manner detached from all towing lines so that it is rendered unusable for fishing; or, if remaining on deck uncovered, must be stowed disconnected from the trawl doors with the trawl doors hung from their stanchions. The following GCAs apply to vessels participating in the limited entry trawl fishery. Additional closed areas that specifically apply to vessels using midwater groundfish trawl gear are described at § 660.131(c).

    (4) * * *

    (ii) Trawl vessels may transit through an applicable GCA, with or without groundfish on board, provided all prohibited groundfish trawl gear: is stowed below deck; or, if the gear cannot readily be moved, is stowed in a secured and covered manner detached from all towing lines so that it is rendered unusable for fishing; or, if remaining on deck uncovered, is stowed disconnected from the trawl doors with the trawl doors hung from their stanchions. These restrictions do not apply to vessels allowed to fish within the trawl RCA under paragraph (e)(4)(i) of this section.

    (iv) If a vessel fishes in the trawl RCA using midwater trawl gear, it may also fish outside the trawl RCA with groundfish bottom trawl gear on the same trip. Nothing in these Federal regulations supersedes any state regulations that may prohibit trawling shoreward of the fishery management area (3-200 nm).

    9. In § 660.140, remove paragraphs (c)(1) and (h)(2)(viii)(I), and redesignate paragraph (c)(2) as (c)(1), revise newly redesignated paragraph (c)(1), and reserve paragraph (c)(2) to read as follows:
    § 660.140 Shorebased IFQ Program.

    (c) * * *

    (1) IFQ management areas. IFQ management areas are as follows:

    (i) Between the U.S./Canada border and 40°10′ N lat.,

    (ii) Between 40°10′ N lat. and 36° N lat.,

    (iii) Between 36° N lat. and 34°27′ N lat., and

    (iv) Between 34°27′ N lat. and the U.S./Mexico border.

    (2) [Reserved]

    10. Table 1 (North) and Table 1 (South) to part 660, subpart D are revised to read as follows: BILLING CODE 3510-22-P ER03DE18.002 ER03DE18.003 11. In § 660.333, revise paragraphs (b)(1), and (d)(1) to read as follows:

    ACTION:

    Rulemaking petition; notification of availability.

    SUMMARY:

    On August 27, 2018, the Federal Election Commission received a Petition for Rulemaking, which asks the Commission to amend a regulation that defines the term “contribution” in light of a recent district court decision in Citizens for Responsibility & Ethics in Washington v. Federal Election Commission. The Commission seeks comments on the petition.

    DATES:

    Comments must be submitted on or before February 1, 2019.

    ADDRESSES:

    SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

    On August 27, 2018, the Commission received a Petition for Rulemaking from the Institute for Free Speech (“Petition”), asking the Commission to amend 11 CFR 100.52, which defines the term “contribution.” Specifically, the Institute for Free Speech asks the Commission to amend this regulation in light of the decision in Citizens for Responsibility & Ethics in Washington v. FEC (“CREW”), 316 F. Supp. 3d 349 (D.D.C. 2018), appeal docketed, No. 18-5261 (DC Cir. Aug. 30, 2018).

    Under the Federal Election Campaign Act, 52 U.S.C. 30101-45 (the “Act”), and Commission regulations, persons other than political committees that make independent expenditures aggregating over $250 with respect to a given election in a calendar year must report to the Commission certain information regarding their independent expenditures. 52 U.S.C. 30104(c)(1); 11 CFR 109.10(b) and (e). The Act provides that such reports must include “the identification of each person (other than a political committee) who makes a contribution to the reporting committee during the reporting period, whose contribution or contributions have an aggregate amount or value in excess of $200 within the calendar year,” and “the identification of each person who made a contribution in excess of $200 to the person filing such statement which was made for the purpose of furthering an independent expenditure.” 52 U.S.C. 30104(b)(3)(A), (c)(1), (c)(2)(C) (emphasis added). Commission regulations implemented these paragraphs by requiring persons filing such reports to include the “identification of each person who made a contribution in excess of $200 to the person filing such report, which contribution was made for the purpose of furthering the reported independent expenditure.” 11 CFR 109.10(e)(1)(vi) (emphasis added) (vacated effective September 18, 2018). Commission regulations define “contribution” as including a “gift, subscription,loan . . ., advance, or deposit of money or anything of value made by any person for the purpose of influencing any election for Federal office.” 11 CFR 100.52; see also 52 U.S.C. 30101(8)(A)(i) (same).

    In CREW, the court declared invalid and vacated the reporting requirement at 11 CFR 109.10(e)(1)(vi) for persons other than political committees that make independent expenditures. The court held that the regulation failed to implement the statutory disclosure requirements of 52 U.S.C. 30104(c). CREW, 316 F.Supp.3d at 423.1

    1 An appeal of this decision is currently pending before the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit.

    According to the Petition, “the court [in CREW] extended the scope of donations to nonprofit entities that may now be considered reportable contributions under the Federal Election Campaign Act . . . to include certain funds given to organizations that, while not political committees, spend $250 in independent expenditures in a calendar year.” Petition at 1. The Petition argues that “the current definition of `Contribution' is inaccurate and misleading, especially as it pertains to groups that are not political committees,” and “[t]o understand which donations [to these groups] are contributions and which are not, potential speakers must parse over 40 years of case law, because neither the statute nor the regulation defining contributions has been updated to reflect existing constitutional limits.” Id. at 5. In light of this, the Petition asks the Commission to open a rulemaking “to amend 11 CFR 100.52 to clarify the definition of `Contribution.' ” Id.

    The Commission seeks comments on the petition. The public may inspect the petition on the Commission's website at http://www.fec.gov/fosers, or in the Commission's Public Records Office, 1050 First Street NE, 12th Floor, Washington, DC 20463, Monday through Friday, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

    The Commission will not consider the petition's merits until after the comment period closes. If the Commission decides that the petition has merit, it may begin a rulemaking proceeding. The Commission will announce any action that it takes in the Federal Register.

    On behalf of the Commission.

    SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

    On February 10, 2016, the Federal Election Commission received a Petition for Rulemaking from Make Your Laws PAC, Inc., Make Your Laws Advocacy, Inc., Make Your Laws, Inc., and Dan Backer, Esq., asking the Commission to modify its regulation at 11 CFR 112.3 to provide time for the public to comment on drafts of advisory opinions before the Commission votes on the drafts.

    Current Commission advisory opinion procedures state that the Commission “will provide at least one draft response to the Requestor and the public no later than one week prior to the Commission open meeting at which the advisory opinion will be considered.” Advisory Opinion Procedure, 74 FR 32160, 32161 (July 7, 2009). These procedures also note that “prior to the open meeting, additional advisory opinion draft responses may be produced after the initial draft(s) is released publicly,” and that “[t]he Commission will make available to the public and to Requestors any and all additional draft responses as soon as possible.” Id. The petition asks the Commission to modify its regulation at 11 CFR 112.3 to codify procedures establishing specific time periods for public comment on drafts of advisory opinions before the Commission votes on the drafts. The petition further asks the Commission to amend existing regulations to require that, when the Commission makes public multiple drafts of an advisory opinion, the Commission indicate the differences between those drafts.

    ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY 40 CFR Part 55 [EPA-R03-OAR-2009-0238; FRL-9986-90-Region 3] Outer Continental Shelf Air Regulations; Consistency Update for Delaware AGENCY:

    Environmental Protection Agency.

    ACTION:

    Proposed rule; consistency update.

    SUMMARY:

    The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is proposing to update a portion of the Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) Air Regulations. Requirements applying to OCS sources located within 25 miles of states' seaward boundaries must be updated periodically to remain consistent with the requirements of the corresponding onshore area (COA), as mandated by section 328(a)(1) of the Clean Air Act (CAA). The portion of the OCS air regulations that is being updated pertains to the requirements for OCS sources for which Delaware is the designated COA. The State of Delaware's requirements discussed in this document are proposed to be incorporated by reference into the Code of Federal Regulations and listed in the appendix to the OCS air regulations.

    DATES:

    Written comments must be received on or before January 2, 2019.

    SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

    I. Background

    On September 4, 1992, EPA promulgated 40 CFR part 55,1 which established requirements to control air pollution from OCS sources in order to attain and maintain Federal and state ambient air quality standards and to comply with the provisions of part C of title I of the CAA. The regulations at 40 CFR part 55 apply to all OCS sources except those located in the Gulf of Mexico west of 87.5 degrees longitude. See 40 CFR 55.3(a). Section 328 of the CAA requires that for such sources located within 25 miles of a state's seaward boundary, the requirements shall be the same as would be applicable if the sources were located in the COA. Because the OCS requirements are based on onshore requirements, and onshore requirements may change, section 328(a)(1) requires that EPA update the OCS requirements as necessary to maintain consistency with onshore requirements.

    1 The reader may refer to the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking, December 5, 1991 (56 FR 63774), and the preamble to the final rule promulgated September 4, 1992 (57 FR 40792) for further background and information on the OCS regulations.

    Pursuant to 40 CFR 55.12, consistency reviews will occur (1) at least annually; (2) upon receipt of a Notice of Intent (NOI) under 40 CFR 55.4; or (3) when a state or local agency submits a rule to EPA to be considered for incorporation by reference in 40 CFR part 55. This proposed action is being taken in response to the submittal of a NOI on August 8, 2018, by Deepwater Wind, LLC on behalf of Garden State Offshore Energy, LLC for the proposed installation of a meteorological buoy for the purposes of gathering meteorological data to support development of offshore wind projects. Public comments received in writing within 30 days of publication of this document will be considered by EPA before publishing a final rule.

    Section 328(a) of the CAA requires that EPA establish requirements to control air pollution from OCS sources located within 25 miles of States' seaward boundaries that are the same as onshore requirements. To comply with this statutory mandate, EPA must incorporate applicable onshore rules into 40 CFR part 55 as they exist onshore. This limits EPA's flexibility in deciding which requirements will be incorporated into 40 CFR part 55 and prevents EPA from making substantive changes to the requirements it incorporates. As a result, EPA may be incorporating rules into 40 CFR part 55 that do not conform to all of EPA's state implementation plan (SIP) guidance or certain requirements of the CAA. Consistency updates may result in the inclusion of state or local rules or regulations into 40 CFR part 55, even though the same rules may ultimately be disapproved for inclusion as part of the SIP. Inclusion in the OCS rule does not imply that a rule meets the requirements of the CAA for SIP approval, nor does it imply that the rule will be approved by EPA for inclusion in the SIP.

    II. EPA Analysis

    EPA reviewed Delaware's rules for inclusion in 40 CFR part 55 to ensure that they are rationally related to the attainment or maintenance of Federal or state ambient air quality standards and compliance with part C of title I of the CAA, that they are not designed expressly to prevent exploration and development of the OCS, and that they are potentially applicable to OCS sources. See 40 CFR 55.1. EPA has also evaluated the rules to ensure they are not arbitrary or capricious. See 40 CFR 55.12(e). In addition, EPA has excluded administrative or procedural rules,2 and requirements that regulate toxics which are not related to the attainment and maintenance of Federal and state ambient air quality standards.

    2 Each COA which has been delegated the authority to implement and enforce 40 CFR part 55 will use its administrative and procedural rules as onshore. However, in those instances where EPA has not delegated authority to implement and enforce 40 CFR part 55, EPA will use its own administrative and procedural requirements to implement the substantive requirements. See 40 CFR 55.14(c)(4).

    EPA is soliciting public comments on the issues discussed in this document or on other relevant matters. These comments will be considered before taking final action. Interested parties may participate in the Federal rulemaking procedure by submitting written comments to the EPA Regional Office listed in the ADDRESSES section of this Federal Register.

    III. Proposed Action

    EPA is proposing to incorporate the rules potentially applicable to sources for which the State of Delaware will be the COA. The rules that EPA proposes to incorporate are applicable provisions of Title 7 of the Delaware Administrative Code, specifically, Air Quality Management Section 1100. The rules EPA proposes to incorporate are listed in detail at the end of the document. The intended effect of proposing approval of the OCS requirements for the Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control (DNREC) is to regulate emissions from OCS sources in accordance with the requirements for onshore sources.

    IV. Incorporation by Reference

    In this document, EPA is proposing to include in a final EPA rule regulatory text that includes incorporation by reference. In accordance with the requirements of 1 CFR 51.5, EPA is proposing to incorporate by reference Title 7 of the Delaware Administrative Code set forth below. EPA has made, and will continue to make, these materials available through www.regulations.gov and at the EPA Region III Office (please contact the person identified in the For Further Information Contact section of this preamble for more information).

    V. Statutory and Executive Order Reviews

    Under the Clean Air Act, the Administrator is required to establish requirements to control air pollution from OCS sources located within 25 miles of states' seaward boundaries that are the same as onshore air pollution control requirements. To comply with this statutory mandate, the EPA must incorporate applicable onshore rules into 40 CFR part 55 as they exist onshore. See 42 U.S.C. 7627(a)(1); 40 CFR 55.12. Thus, in promulgating OCS consistency updates, EPA's role is to maintain consistency between OCS regulations and the regulations of onshore areas, provided that they meet the criteria of the CAA. Accordingly, this action simply updates the existing OCS requirements to make them consistent with requirements onshore, without the exercise of any policy direction by EPA. For that reason, this proposed action:

    • Is not a “significant regulatory action” subject to review by the Office of Management and Budget under Executive Orders 12866 (58 FR 51735, October 4, 1993) and 13563 (76 FR 3821, January 21, 2011);

    • Is not an Executive Order 13771 regulatory action because this action is not significant under Executive Order 12866.

    • Does not impose an information collection burden under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.);

    • Is certified as not having a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.);

    • Does not contain any unfunded mandate or significantly or uniquely affect small governments, as described in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (Pub. L. 104-4);

    • Does not have federalism implications as specified in Executive Order 13132 (64 FR 43255, August 10, 1999);

    • Is not an economically significant regulatory action based on health or safety risks subject to Executive Order 13045 (62 FR 19885, April 23, 1997);

    • Is not a significant regulatory action subject to Executive Order 13211 (66 FR 28355, May 22, 2001);

    • Is not subject to requirements of Section 12(d) of the National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act of 1995 (15 U.S.C. 272 note) because application of those requirements would be inconsistent with the CAA; and

    • Does not provide EPA with the discretionary authority to address, as appropriate, disproportionate human health or environmental effects, using practicable and legally permissible methods, under Executive Order 12898 (59 FR 7629, February 16, 1994).

    In addition, this proposed rule incorporating by reference sections of Title 7 of the Delaware Administrative Code, does not have tribal implications as specified by Executive Order 13175 (65 FR 67249, November 9, 2000), because this action is not approved to apply in Indian country located in the state, and EPA notes that it will not impose substantial direct costs on tribal governments or preemptive tribal law.

    Under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act, 44 U.S.C 3501 et seq., an agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. OMB has approved the information collection requirements contained in 40 CFR part 55 and, by extension, this update to the rules, and has assigned OMB control number 2060-0249. OMB approved the EPA Information Collection Request (ICR) No. 1601.08 on September 18, 2017.3 The current approval expires September 30, 2020. The annual public reporting and recordkeeping burden for collection of information under 40 CFR part 55 is estimated to average 643 hours per response, using the definition of burden provided in 44 U.S.C. 3502(2).

    3 OMB's approval of the ICR can be viewed at www.reginfo.gov.

    EPA is proposing to incorporate the rules potentially applicable to sources for which the State of Delaware will be the COA. The rules that EPA proposes to incorporate are applicable provisions of Title 7 of the Delaware Administrative Code, specifically, Air Quality Management Section 1100.

EPA last approved Regulation 1125, Section 2.0 for the Delaware SIP on October 2, 2012, these emission offset provisions address requirements in CAA 173(c)(1), 40 CFR 51.165, and part 51, appendix S, section IV.D. The State effective date of this version of Regulation 1125, Section 2.0, Emission Offset Provisions was February 11, 2012, and it is this version of Regulation 1125, Section 2.0 that Delaware is required to implement and EPA is proposing to incorporate by reference into 40 CFR part 55 in this rulemaking action.

    Title: Federal-State Supplemental Nutrition Programs Agreement.

    Form Number: FNS-339.

    OMB Number: 0584-0332.

    Expiration Date: February 28, 2019.

    Type of Request: Revision of a currently approved collection.

    Abstract: The Federal-State Supplemental Nutrition Programs Agreement (Form FNS-339) is an annual contract between the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and each State, Territory, and Indian Tribal Government agency seeking to operate one or more of the following programs: The Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children (WIC), the WIC Farmers' Market Nutrition Program (FMNP), and the Seniors Farmers' Market Nutrition Program (SFMNP). The Food and Nutrition Service (FNS), of the USDA, is authorized to administer the WIC and the FMNP Programs under the following authority: Section 17 of the Child Nutrition Act (CNA) of 1966, as amended, and the SFMNP under 7 U.S.C. 3007.

    The FNS-339 requires the signature of the Chief State agency official and includes a certification/assurance regarding drug free workplace, a certification regarding lobbying, and a disclosure of lobbying activities. The signed agreement thereby authorizes USDA to make funds available to State agencies for the administration of the WIC, FMNP, and/or SFMNP Programs within the State, and in accordance with 7 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) parts 246, 248, and 249. The State agency agrees to accept Federal funds for expenditure in accordance with applicable statutes and regulations and to comply with all the provisions of such statutes and regulations, and amendments thereto.

    This information collection is requesting a revision in the burden hours due to Program adjustments that primarily reflect expected changes in the number of WIC, FMNP, and/or SFMNP State agencies from year to year. The number of respondents (agencies administering the WIC, FMNP and/or SFMNP Programs) has increased from 124 to 129. This adjustment increased the total annual burden from 31 hours to 32.25 hours. FNS also, has recordkeeping requirements and under-estimated the total annual responses for recordkeeping under the previous burden revision. Under this revision, there is an increase in the total annual responses from 124 to 258.

    Affected Public: State, Territory, and Indian Tribal Government Agencies.

    Estimated Number of Respondents: The total estimated number of respondents is 129 out of 191 in the possible respondents in the universe. This includes an unduplicated count of respondents that are responsible for the operation of 90 WIC Programs, 49 FMNP Programs, and 52 SFMNP Programs. 5 State agencies solely operate the FMNP program; 19 State agencies solely operate the SFMNP program; 15 State agencies operate both the FMNP and SFMNP programs; 59 State agencies solely operate the WIC program; 13 State agencies operate both the WIC and FMNP programs; 2 State agencies operate both the WIC and SFMNP programs; and 16 State agencies operate the WIC, FMNP, and SFMNP programs.

    Estimated Number of Responses per Respondent: 2: There is one response per agency for the completion of the FNS-339 and one response per agency to photocopy and maintain a record of the FNS-339. The FNS-339 allows State agencies to select one or more of the Program(s) which they administer (WIC/FMNP/SFMNP).

    Estimated Total Annual Responses: 258 responses; (129 for reporting and 129 for recordkeeping).

    Estimated Time per Response: 7.5 minutes for reporting and 7.5 minutes for recordkeeping. The estimated time for each respondent to report and maintain records is 15 minutes (0.25 hours) combined. It takes respondents approximately 7.5 minutes (0.125 hours) to read and sign the required form. Additionally, respondents spend another 7.5 minutes (0.125 hours) making photocopies and filing each year. Therefore, the number of hours spent per each of the 129 reports per year is 0.25 hours totaling the requested 32.25 burden hours.

    Estimated Total Annual Burden on Respondents: The total estimated annual burden for reporting is 16.125 and the total estimated annual burden for recordkeeping is 16.125 for a grand total estimate of 32.25 hours. See the table below for the estimated total annual burden for each type of respondent and each activity.

    DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE International Trade Administration Antidumping or Countervailing Duty Order, Finding, or Suspended Investigation; Advance Notification of Sunset Review AGENCY:

    Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade Administration, Department of Commerce.

    Background

    Every five years, pursuant to the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), the Department of Commerce (Commerce) and the International Trade Commission automatically initiate and conduct reviews to determine whether revocation of a countervailing or antidumping duty order or termination of an investigation suspended under section 704 or 734 of the Act would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping or a countervailable subsidy (as the case may be) and of material injury.

    Upcoming Sunset Reviews for January 2019

    Pursuant to section 751(c) of the Act, the following Sunset Review is scheduled for initiation in January 2019 and will appear in that month's Notice of Initiation of Five-Year Sunset Reviews (Sunset Review).

    DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE International Trade Administration Antidumping or Countervailing Duty Order, Finding, or Suspended Investigation; Opportunity To Request Administrative Review AGENCY:

    Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade Administration, Department of Commerce.

    FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT:

    Brenda E. Brown, Office of AD/CVD Operations, Customs Liaison Unit, Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 1401 Constitution Avenue NW, Washington, DC 20230, telephone: (202) 482-4735.

    Background

    Each year during the anniversary month of the publication of an antidumping or countervailing duty order, finding, or suspended investigation, an interested party, as defined in section 771(9) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), may request, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213, that the Department of Commerce (Commerce) conduct an administrative review of that antidumping or countervailing duty order, finding, or suspended investigation.

    All deadlines for the submission of comments or actions by Commerce discussed below refer to the number of calendar days from the applicable starting date.

    Respondent Selection

    In the event Commerce limits the number of respondents for individual examination for administrative reviews initiated pursuant to requests made for the orders identified below, Commerce intends to select respondents based on U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) data for U.S. imports during the period of review. We intend to release the CBP data under Administrative Protective Order (APO) to all parties having an APO within five days of publication of the initiation notice and to make our decision regarding respondent selection within 21 days of publication of the initiation Federal Register notice. Therefore, we encourage all parties interested in commenting on respondent selection to submit their APO applications on the date of publication of the initiation notice, or as soon thereafter as possible. Commerce invites comments regarding the CBP data and respondent selection within five days of placement of the CBP data on the record of the review.

    In the event Commerce decides it is necessary to limit individual examination of respondents and conduct respondent selection under section 777A(c)(2) of the Act:

    In general, Commerce finds that determinations concerning whether particular companies should be “collapsed” (i.e., treated as a single entity for purposes of calculating antidumping duty rates) require a substantial amount of detailed information and analysis, which often require follow-up questions and analysis. Accordingly, Commerce will not conduct collapsing analyses at the respondent selection phase of a review and will not collapse companies at the respondent selection phase unless there has been a determination to collapse certain companies in a previous segment of this antidumping proceeding (i.e., investigation, administrative review, new shipper review or changed circumstances review). For any company subject to a review, if Commerce determined, or continued to treat, that company as collapsed with others, Commerce will assume that such companies continue to operate in the same manner and will collapse them for respondent selection purposes. Otherwise, Commerce will not collapse companies for purposes of respondent selection. Parties are requested to (a) identify which companies subject to review previously were collapsed, and (b) provide a citation to the proceeding in which they were collapsed. Further, if companies are requested to complete a Quantity and Value Questionnaire for purposes of respondent selection, in general each company must report volume and value data separately for itself. Parties should not include data for any other party, even if they believe they should be treated as a single entity with that other party. If a company was collapsed with another company or companies in the most recently completed segment of a proceeding where Commerce considered collapsing that entity, complete quantity and value data for that collapsed entity must be submitted.

    Deadline for Withdrawal of Request for Administrative Review

    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), a party that requests a review may withdraw that request within 90 days of the date of publication of the notice of initiation of the requested review. The regulation provides that Commerce may extend this time if it is reasonable to do so. Determinations by Commerce to extend the 90-day deadline will be made on a case-by-case basis.

    Deadline for Particular Market Situation Allegation

    Section 504 of the Trade Preferences Extension Act of 2015 amended the Act by adding the concept of particular market situation (PMS) for purposes of constructed value under section 773(e) of the Act.1 Section 773(e) of the Act states that “if a particular market situation exists such that the cost of materials and fabrication or other processing of any kind does not accurately reflect the cost of production in the ordinary course of trade, the administering authority may use another calculation methodology under this subtitle or any other calculation methodology.” When an interested party submits a PMS allegation pursuant to section 773(e) of the Act, Commerce will respond to such a submission consistent with 19 CFR 351.301(c)(v). If Commerce finds that a PMS exists under section 773(e) of the Act, then it will modify its dumping calculations appropriately.

    1See Trade Preferences Extension Act of 2015, Public Law 114-27, 129 Stat. 362 (2015).

    Neither section 773(e) of the Act nor 19 CFR 351.301(c)(v) set a deadline for the submission of PMS allegations and supporting factual information. However, in order to administer section 773(e) of the Act, Commerce must receive PMS allegations and supporting factual information with enough time to consider the submission. Thus, should an interested party wish to submit a PMS allegation and supporting new factual information pursuant to section 773(e) of the Act, it must do so no later than 20 days after submission of initial Section D responses.

    Opportunity to Request a Review: Not later than the last day of December 2018,2 interested parties may request administrative review of the following orders, findings, or suspended investigations, with anniversary dates in December for the following periods:

    2 Or the next business day, if the deadline falls on a weekend, federal holiday or any other day when Commerce is closed.

    In accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(b), an interested party as defined by section 771(9) of the Act may request in writing that the Secretary conduct an administrative review. For both antidumping and countervailing duty reviews, the interested party must specify the individual producers or exporters covered by an antidumping finding or an antidumping or countervailing duty order or suspension agreement for which it is requesting a review. In addition, a domestic interested party or an interested party described in section 771(9)(B) of the Act must state why it desires the Secretary to review those particular producers or exporters. If the interested party intends for the Secretary to review sales of merchandise by an exporter (or a producer if that producer also exports merchandise from other suppliers) which was produced in more than one country of origin and each country of origin is subject to a separate order, then the interested party must state specifically, on an order-by-order basis, which exporter(s) the request is intended to cover.

    Note that, for any party Commerce was unable to locate in prior segments, Commerce will not accept a request for an administrative review of that party absent new information as to the party's location. Moreover, if the interested party who files a request for review is unable to locate the producer or exporter for which it requested the review, the interested party must provide an explanation of the attempts it made to locate the producer or exporter at the same time it files its request for review, in order for the Secretary to determine if the interested party's attempts were reasonable, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.303(f)(3)(ii).

    As explained in Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003), and Non-Market Economy Antidumping Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 76 FR 65694 (October 24, 2011), Commerce clarified its practice with respect to the collection of final antidumping duties on imports of merchandise where intermediate firms are involved. The public should be aware of this clarification in determining whether to request an administrative review of merchandise subject to antidumping findings and orders.3

    3See also the Enforcement and Compliance website at http://trade.gov/enforcement/.

    Commerce no longer considers the non-market economy (NME) entity as an exporter conditionally subject to an antidumping duty administrative reviews.4 Accordingly, the NME entity will not be under review unless Commerce specifically receives a request for, or self-initiates, a review of the NME entity.5 In administrative reviews of antidumping duty orders on merchandise from NME countries where a review of the NME entity has not been initiated, but where an individual exporter for which a review was initiated does not qualify for a separate rate, Commerce will issue a final decision indicating that the company in question is part of the NME entity. However, in that situation, because no review of the NME entity was conducted, the NME entity's entries were not subject to the review and the rate for the NME entity is not subject to change as a result of that review (although the rate for the individual exporter may change as a function of the finding that the exporter is part of the NME entity). Following initiation of an antidumping administrative review when there is no review requested of the NME entity, Commerce will instruct CBP to liquidate entries for all exporters not named in the initiation notice, including those that were suspended at the NME entity rate.

    4See Antidumping Proceedings: Announcement of Change in Department Practice for Respondent Selection in Antidumping Duty Proceedings and Conditional Review of the Nonmarket Economy Entity in NME Antidumping Duty Proceedings, 78 FR 65963 (November 4, 2013).

    5 In accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(b)(1), parties should specify that they are requesting a review of entries from exporters comprising the entity, and to the extent possible, include the names of such exporters in their request.

    All requests must be filed electronically in Enforcement and Compliance's Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Centralized Electronic Service System (ACCESS) on Enforcement and Compliance's ACCESS website at http://access.trade.gov. 6 Further, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.303(f)(l)(i), a copy of each request must be served on the petitioner and each exporter or producer specified in the request.

    6See Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Electronic Filing Procedures; Administrative Protective Order Procedures, 76 FR 39263 (July 6, 2011).

    Commerce will publish in the Federal Register a notice of “Initiation of Administrative Review of Antidumping or Countervailing Duty Order, Finding, or Suspended Investigation” for requests received by the last day of December 2018. If Commerce does not receive, by the last day of December 2018, a request for review of entries covered by an order, finding, or suspended investigation listed in this notice and for the period identified above, Commerce will instruct CBP to assess antidumping or countervailing duties on those entries at a rate equal to the cash deposit of estimated antidumping or countervailing duties required on those entries at the time of entry, or withdrawal from warehouse, for consumption and to continue to collect the cash deposit previously ordered.

    For the first administrative review of any order, there will be no assessment of antidumping or countervailing duties on entries of subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption during the relevant provisional-measures “gap” period of the order, if such a gap period is applicable to the period of review.

    SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

    Background

    This preliminary determination is made in accordance with section 703(b) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). Commerce published the notice of initiation of this investigation on July 10, 2018.1 On August 28, 2018, pursuant to a request from the Coalition for Fair Racks Imports (the petitioner),2 Commerce postponed the preliminary determination of this investigation to November 19, 2018.3 For a complete description of the events that followed the initiation of this investigation, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum.4 A list of topics discussed in the Preliminary Decision Memorandum is included as Appendix II to this notice. The Preliminary Decision Memorandum is a public document and is on file electronically via Enforcement and Compliance's Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Centralized Electronic Service System (ACCESS). ACCESS is available to registered users at http://access.trade.gov, and is available to all parties in the Central Records Unit, room B8024 of the main Department of Commerce building.

    Scope of the Investigation

    The products covered by this investigation are steel racks from China. For a complete description of the scope of this investigation, see Appendix I.

    Scope Comments

    In accordance with the preamble to Commerce's regulations,5 the Initiation Notice set aside a period of time for parties to raise issues regarding product coverage, (i.e. , scope).6 Certain interested parties commented on the scope of the investigation as it appeared in the Initiation Notice. Commerce intends to issue its preliminary decision regarding comments concerning the scope of the antidumping duty and countervailing duty investigations in the preliminary determination of the companion antidumping duty (AD) investigation.

    5See Antidumping Duties; Countervailing Duties, Final Rule, 62 FR 27296, 27323 (May 19, 1997).

    6See Initiation Notice.

    Methodology

    Commerce is conducting this investigation in accordance with section 701 of the Act. For each of the subsidy programs found countervailable, Commerce preliminarily determines that there is a subsidy, i.e. , a financial contribution by an “authority” that gives rise to a benefit to the recipient, and that the subsidy is specific.7 In making these findings, Commerce relied, in part, on facts available and, because it finds that certain respondents did not act to the best of their ability to respond to Commerce's requests for information, it drew an adverse inference where appropriate in selecting from among the facts otherwise available.8 For further information, see “Use of Facts Otherwise Available and Adverse Inferences” in the Preliminary Decision Memorandum.

    7 See sections 771(5)(B) and (D) of the Act regarding financial contribution; section 771(5)(E) of the Act regarding benefit; and section 771(5A) of the Act regarding specificity.

    8See sections 776(a) and (b) of the Act.

    Alignment

    As noted in the Preliminary Decision Memorandum, in accordance with section 705(a)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.210(b)(4), Commerce is aligning the final countervailing duty determination in this investigation with the final determination in the companion antidumping duty investigation of steel racks from China based on a request made by the petitioner.9 Consequently, the final countervailing duty determination will be issued on the same date as the final antidumping determination, which is currently scheduled to be issued no later than April 1, 2019, unless postponed.

    9See Letter, “Certain Steel Racks from the People's Republic of China: Request to Align Final Countervailing Duty and Antidumping Determinations,” dated October 31, 2018.

    All-Others Rate

    Sections 703(d) and 705(c)(5)(A) of the Act provide that in the preliminary determination, Commerce shall determine an estimated all-others rate for companies not individually examined. This rate shall be an amount equal to the weighted average of the estimated subsidy rates established for those companies individually examined, excluding any zero and de minimis rates and any rates based entirely under section 776 of the Act.

    In this investigation, Commerce preliminarily assigned rates based entirely on facts available for Jiangsu Kingmore Storage Equipment Manufacturing Co., Ltd., Nanjing Huade Storage Equipment Manufacture Co., Ltd., Tangshan Apollo Energy Equipment Company, Ltd., and 13 companies that failed to respond to our quantity and value (Q&V) questionnaire.10 Commerce calculated individual estimated countervailable subsidy rates for Nanjing Dongsheng Shelf Manufacturing Co., Ltd. (Nanjing Dongsheng) and Xiamen Aifei Metal Manufacturing Co., Ltd. (Aifeimetal). Therefore, Commerce calculated the all-others” rate using a weighted average of the individual estimated subsidy rates calculated for Aifeimetal and Nanjing Dongsheng using each company's publicly-ranged values for the merchandise under consideration.11

    10 The companies that did not respond to our Q&V questionnaire are: Designa Inc.; Dongguan Baike Electronic Co., Ltd.; Ezidone Display Corp. Ltd.; Fenghua Huige Metal Products Co., Ltd.; Formost Plastic Metal Works (Jiaxing) Co., Ltd.; Ningbo Bocheng Home Products Co., Ltd.; Ningbo Joys Imp. & Exp. Co., Ltd.; Ningbo Li Zhan Import & Export Co.; Qingdao Haineng Hardware Products Co., Ltd.; Qingdao Huatian Hand Truck Co., Ltd.; Qingdao Zeal-Line Stainless Steel Products Co., Ltd.; Seven Seas Furniture Industrial (Xiamen) Co., Ltd.; and Shijiazhuang Wells Trading & Mfg. Co., Ltd.

    11 With two respondents under examination, Commerce normally calculates (A) a weighted-average of the estimated subsidy rates calculated for the examined respondents; (B) a simple average of the estimated subsidy rates calculated for the examined respondents; and (C) a weighted-average of the estimated subsidy rates calculated for the examined respondents using each company's publicly-ranged U.S. sale quantities for the merchandise under consideration. Commerce then compares (B) and (C) to (A) and selects the rate closest to (A) as the most appropriate rate for all other producers and exporters. See, e.g. , Ball Bearings and Parts Thereof from France, Germany, Italy, Japan, and the United Kingdom: Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Reviews, Final Results of Changed-Circumstances Review, and Revocation of an Order in Part, 75 FR 53661, 53663 (September 1, 2010). As complete publicly ranged sales data was available, Commerce based the all-others rate on the publicly ranged sales data of the mandatory respondents. For a complete analysis of the data, please see the All-Others” Rate Calculation Memorandum.

    Preliminary Determination

    Commerce preliminarily determines that the following estimated countervailable subsidy rates exist:

    Suspension of Liquidation

    12 As discussed in the Preliminary Decision Memorandum, Commerce has found Xiamen Massive Joy Industry Co., Ltd. and Xiamen Aifei Health-Tech Co., Ltd. to be cross-owned with Xiamen Aifei Metal Manufacturing Co., Ltd.

    In accordance with section 703(d)(1)(B) and (d)(2) of the Act, Commerce will direct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to suspend liquidation of entries of subject merchandise as described in the scope of the investigation section entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the date of publication of this notice in the Federal Register. Further, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.205(d), Commerce will instruct CBP to require a cash deposit equal to the rates indicated above.

    The merchandise covered by this investigation is steel racks and parts thereof, assembled, to any extent, or unassembled, including but not limited to, vertical components (e.g., uprights, posts, or columns), horizontal or diagonal components (e.g., arms or beams), braces, frames, locking devices (i.e., end plates and beam connectors), and accessories (including, but not limited to, rails, skid channels, skid rails, drum/coil beds, fork clearance bars, pallet supports, column and post protectors, end row and end aisle protectors, corner guards, row spacers, and wall ties). Subject steel racks and parts thereof are made of steel, including, but not limited to, cold and/or hot-formed steel, regardless of the type of steel used to produce the components and may, or may not, include locking tabs, slots, or bolted, clamped, or welded connections.

    Steel rack components can be assembled into structures of various dimensions and configurations by welding, bolting, clipping, or with the use of devices such as clips, end plates, and beam connectors, including, but not limited to the following configurations: (1) Racks with upright frames perpendicular to the aisles that are independently adjustable, with positive locking beams parallel to the aisle spanning the upright frames with braces; and (2) cantilever racks with vertical components parallel to the aisle and cantilever beams or arms connected to the vertical components perpendicular to the aisle. Steel racks may be referred to as pallet racks, storage racks, stacker racks, retail racks, pick modules, selective racks, or cantilever racks and may incorporate moving components and be referred to as pallet-flow racks, carton-flow racks, push-back racks, movable-shelf racks, drive-in racks, and drive-through racks. While steel racks may be made to ANSI MH16.l or ANSI MH16.3 standards, all steel racks and parts thereof meeting the description set out herein are covered by the scope of this investigation, whether or not produced according to a particular standard.

    The scope includes all steel racks and parts thereof meeting the description above, regardless of

    (1) Dimensions, weight, strength, gauge, or load rating;

    (2) vertical components or frame type (including structural, roll-form, or other);

    (3) horizontal support or beam/brace type (including but not limited to structural, roll-form, slotted, unslotted, Z-beam, C-beam, L-beam, step beam, and cantilever beam);

    (4) number of supports;

    (5) number of levels;

    (6) surface coating, if any (including but not limited to paint, epoxy, powder coating, zinc, or other metallic coatings);

    (7) shape (including but not limited to rectangular, square, corner, and cantilever);

    (8) the method by which the vertical and horizontal supports connect (including but not limited to locking tabs or slots, bolting, clamping, and welding); and

    (9) whether or not the steel rack has moving components (including but not limited to rails, wheels, rollers, tracks, channels, carts, and conveyors).

    Subject merchandise includes merchandise matching the above description that has been finished or packaged in a third country. Finishing includes, but is not limited to, coating, painting, or assembly, including attaching the merchandise to another product, or any other finishing or assembly operation that would not remove the merchandise from the scope of the investigation if performed in the country of manufacture of the steel racks and parts thereof. Packaging includes packaging the merchandise with or without another product or any other packaging operation that would not remove the merchandise from the scope of the investigation if performed in the country of manufacture of the steel racks and parts thereof.

    Steel racks and parts thereof are included in the scope of this investigation whether or not imported attached to, or included with, other parts or accessories such as wire decking, nuts, and bolts. If steel racks and parts thereof are imported attached to, or included with, such non-subject merchandise, only the steel racks and parts thereof are included in the scope.

    The scope of this investigation does not cover: (1) Decks, i.e., shelving that sits on or fits into the horizontal supports to provide the horizontal storage surface of the steel racks; (2) wire shelving units, i.e., shelves made from wire that incorporate both a wire deck and wire horizontal supports (taking the place of the horizontal beams and braces) into a single piece with tubular collars that slide over the posts and onto plastic sleeves snapped on the posts to create a finished unit; (3) pins, nuts, bolts, washers, and clips used as connecting devices; and (4) non-steel components.

    Specifically excluded from the scope of this investigation are any products covered by Commerce's existing antidumping and countervailing duty orders on boltless steel shelving units prepackaged for sale from the People's Republic of China. See Boltless Steel Shelving Units Prepackaged for Sale from the People's Republic of China: Antidumping Duty Order, 80 Fed. Reg. 63,741 (October 21, 2017); Boltless Steel Shelving Units Prepackaged for Sale from the People's Republic of China: Amended Final Affirmative Countervailing Duty Determination and Countervailing Duty Order, 80 Fed. Reg. 63,745 (October 21, 2017). Also excluded from the scope of this investigation are bulk-packed parts or components of boltless steel shelving units that were specifically excluded from the scope of the Boltless Steel Shelving Orders because such bulk-packed parts or components do not contain the steel vertical supports (i.e., uprights and posts) and steel horizontal supports (i.e., beams, braces) packaged together for assembly into a completed boltless steel shelving unit.

    Merchandise covered by this investigation is currently classified in the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) under the following subheadings: 7326.90.8688, 9403.20.0080, and 9403.90.8041.

    SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

    I. Abstract

    In an effort to streamline processes onboarding new employees and associates, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is preparing to establish a new electronic based EOD (Enter on Duty) System to include automation of all of the necessary steps between applicant selection and reporting for duty, including completion of pre-employment and orientation paperwork by entering information through the EOD system. This EOD solution is intended to increase the efficiency with which new employees are hired by automating the provisioning process and alerting individuals as tasks are completed. The system will utilize an upfront information collection instrument which will subsequently populate information collection instrument(s) required of the incoming Federal employees and NIST Associates. Information requested will include personal identifying data including home address, date and place of birth, employer name and address, and basic security information. Once populated, the individual will be required to validate the information.

    II. Method of Collection

    Prior to entering on duty with NIST as a federal employee or associate, each new entrant will receive a communication from NIST requesting that he/she log in to the EOD system and verify/complete their personnel data. The communication will provide the relevant link and login information to the web based NIST EOD System.

    The new entrant will log in to the EOD system and, based on the new entrant's federal employment or NIST associate category, will be presented with instructions and information regarding the data they will be required to supply. This initial information collection will then populate other required information collections which will be validated and electronically signed by the new entrant.

    III. Data

    OMB Control Number: New Collection. 0693-XXXX.

    Form Number(s): None.

    Type of Review: Regular submission.

    Affected Public: Individuals seeking employment with NIST.

    Estimated Number of Respondents: NIST estimates 4,300 new federal employees and NIST associates will be processed per year.

    Estimated Time per Response: It is estimated that it will take 40 minutes to complete the data collection.

    Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 4,300 × 40 minutes per responses = 2,866 burden hours.

    Estimated Total Annual Cost to Public: There is no cost to the respondent.

    IV. Request for Comments

    NIST invites comments on: (a) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the burden (including hours and cost) of the proposed collection of information; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology.

    SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

    I. Background

    The Southeast Alaska purse seine salmon fishery is a commercial fishery in Alaska state waters and adjacent Federal waters. It encompasses the commercial taking of salmon with purse seine gear, and participation is limited to fishermen designated by the Alaska Commercial Fisheries Entry Commission (CFEC). Congress authorized a $23.5 million loan to finance a fishing capacity reduction program in the Southeast Alaska purse seine salmon fishery. NMFS published proposed program regulations on May 23, 2011 (76 FR 29707), and final program regulations on October 6, 2011 (76 FR 61986), to implement the reduction program. Interested persons should review these for further program details.

    In 2012, NMFS conducted a referendum to determine the remaining fishermen's willingness to repay a $13.1 million fishing capacity reduction loan to remove 64 permits. After a majority of permit holders approved the loan, NMFS disbursed payments to the successful bidders and began collecting fees to repay the loan. Since only $13.1 million was expended from the total loan amount, $10.4 million remains available. This referendum, if approved, will result in a loan of $10.1 million and permanently retire an additional 36 permits from the fishery.

    In June, 2018, the Southeast Revitalization Association submitted a capacity reduction plan to NMFS and NMFS approved the plan in November, 2018. The final regulations require NMFS to publish this notice before conducting a referendum to determine the industry's willingness to repay a fishing capacity reduction loan to purchase the permits identified in the reduction plan.

    As of November 16, 2018, there are 315 permits in the fishery designated as S01A by CFEC. These permanent permit holders are eligible to vote in the referendum.

    Comments may address: (1) Persons who appear on the list below but should not; (2) persons who do not appear on the list but should; (3) persons whose names and/or business mailing addresses are incorrect; and (4)any other pertinent matter. NMFS will update the list, as necessary, immediately before mailing referendum ballots. Mailed ballots will be accompanied by NMFS' detailed voting guidance.

    II. Referendum Voting Period

    The referendum voting period will start January 15, 2019 and end on February 14, 2019. Any votes not received by NMFS by 5 p.m. on February 14, 2019, will not be counted. The following list of eligible voters was provided by CFEC on November 13, 2018:

    DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration RIN 0648-XG641 Fishing Capacity Reduction Program for the Pacific Coast Groundfish Fishery AGENCY:

    National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS), National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, Commerce.

    ACTION:

    Notice of fee rate adjustment.

    SUMMARY:

    NMFS issues this notice to decrease the fee rate to 4.0 percent for the Pacific Coast Groundfish fee-share fishery to repay the $28,428,719 groundfish sub-loan of the $35,662,471 reduction loan that financed the Pacific Coast Groundfish fishing capacity reduction program. NMFS annually recalculates the fee rate that will be reasonably necessary to ensure reduction loan repayment within the specified 30-year term. NMFS has determined that the current fee rate of 4.5 percent for the groundfish fishery is projected to collect more than the annual amortization amount needed for 2019.

    DATES:

    The fee rate decrease for The Pacific Coast Groundfish Fishery program will begin on landings starting January 1, 2019. The first due date for fee payments with the decreased rate will be February 14, 2019.

    ADDRESSES:

    Send questions about this notice to Michael A. Sturtevant, Acting Chief, Financial Services Division, National Marine Fisheries Service, 1315 East-West Highway, Silver Spring, MD 20910-3282.

    FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT:

    Elaine Saiz, (301) 427-8752 or [email protected]

    SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

    Background Sections 312(b) through (e) of the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act (16 U.S.C. 1861a(b) through (e)) generally authorizes fishing capacity reduction programs. In particular, section 312(d) authorizes industry fee systems for repaying reduction loans that finance reduction program. Subpart L of 50 CFR part 600 is the framework rule generally implementing section 312(b) through (e). Sections 1111 and 1112 of the Merchant Marine Act, 1936 (46 App. U.S.C. 1279f and 1279g) generally authorizes reduction loans.

    Enacted on February 20, 2003, section 212 of Division B, Title II, of Public Law 108-7 (section 212) specifically authorizes a fishing capacity reduction program for the limited entry trawl fishery under the Pacific Coast Groundfish Fishery Management Plan whose permits, excluding those registered to whiting catcher-processors, are endorsed for trawl gear operation (reduction fishery).

    The objective of the reduction program was to reduce the number of vessels and permits endorsed for the operation of groundfish trawl gear. The program also involved corollary fishing capacity reduction in the California, Oregon, and Washington fisheries for Dungeness crab and pink shrimp and the sub-loans for these state fisheries have all been repaid.

    NMFS proposed the implementing notice on May 28, 2003 (68 FR 31653) and published the final notice on July 18, 2003 (68 FR 42613). NMFS disbursed a $28,428,719 reduction loan repayable by fees from the groundfish fishery. NMFS published in the Federal Register on July 13, 2005 (70 FR 40225), the final rule to implement the industry fee system for repaying the program's reduction loan. The regulations implementing the program are located at § 600.1012 of 50 CFR part 600 subpart M. On August 8, 2005, NMFS published, in the Federal Register (70 FR 45695), a notice of the fee effective date and established September 8, 2005 as the effective date when fee collection and loan repayment began.

    II. Purpose

    The purpose of this notice is to adjust, in accordance with § 600.1013(b), the fee rate for the groundfish fishery. Section 600.1013(b) directs NMFS to recalculate the fee rate that will be reasonably necessary to ensure reduction loan repayment within the specified 30-year term. NMFS has determined that the current fee rate of 4.5 percent for the groundfish fishery is projected to collect more than the annual amortization amount needed for 2019. Therefore, NMFS is decreasing the fee rate to 4.0 percent for all landings beginning January 1, 2019. As of November 16, 2018, the outstanding balance on the groundfish fishery sub-loan was $21,075,537.

    Fish buyers may continue to disburse collected fee deposits to NMFS by using www.pay.gov (http://www.pay.gov) or mail payments to NOAA Fisheries Pacific Coast Groundfish Buyback, P.O. Box 979059, St. Louis, MO 63197-9000. Fish buyers must include the fee collection report with the fee payment. Fish buyers using www.pay.gov (http://www.pay.gov will find an electronic fee collection report form. Fish buyers not using www.pay.gov may also access the NMFS website for a copy of the fee collection report at: https://www.fisheries.noaa.gov/national/funding-and-financial-services/pacific-coast-groundfish-buyback.

    III. Notice

    The new 4.0 percent fee rate for the groundfish fishery will begin for all landings starting January 1, 2019. After this date, all groundfish-program fish sellers paying fees fishery shall begin paying groundfish program fees at the revised rate. After this date, all fees received by NMFS for the groundfish fishery shall be subject to the new fee rates regardless of the applicable fee month. The first due date for fee payments with the decreased rate will be February 14, 2019.

    Fee collection and submission shall follow previously established methods in § 600.1013 of the framework rule and in the final fee rule published in the Federal Register on July 13, 2005 (70 FR 40225).

    SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

    The Department of Education (ED), in accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA) (44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A)), provides the general public and Federal agencies with an opportunity to comment on proposed, revised, and continuing collections of information. This helps the Department assess the impact of its information collection requirements and minimize the public's reporting burden. It also helps the public understand the Department's information collection requirements and provide the requested data in the desired format. ED is soliciting comments on the proposed information collection request (ICR) that is described below. The Department of Education is especially interested in public comment addressing the following issues: (1) Is this collection necessary to the proper functions of the Department; (2) will this information be processed and used in a timely manner; (3) is the estimate of burden accurate; (4) how might the Department enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (5) how might the Department minimize the burden of this collection on the respondents, including through the use of information technology. Please note that written comments received in response to this notice will be considered public records.

    Title of Collection: Study of State Implementation of the Unsafe School Choice Option.

    OMB Control Number: 1875-NEW.

    Type of Review: A new information collection.

    Respondents/Affected Public: State, Local, and Tribal Governments.

    Total Estimated Number of Annual Responses: 56.

    Total Estimated Number of Annual Burden Hours: 98.

    Abstract: The purpose of this study is to examine state implementation of federal requirements to provide an Unsafe School Choice Option (USCO) that permits students attending a persistently dangerous public elementary or secondary school, or students who become victims of a violent criminal offense while in or on the grounds of a public school that they attend, be allowed to attend a safe public school within the school district, including a public charter school. The U.S. Department of Education (Department) has never conducted such a study. Given ongoing, cross-Federal-agency efforts to help ensure students are safe in school, it is essential for the Department to understand how State Educational Agencies (SEAs) are implementing the USCO requirements.

    Title of Collection: National Longitudinal Transition Study 2012 Phase II.

    OMB Control Number: 1850-0882.

    Type of Review: An extension of an existing information collection.

    Respondents/Affected Public: Individuals or Households.

    Total Estimated Number of Annual Responses: 21,757.

    Total Estimated Number of Annual Burden Hours: 13,345.

    Abstract: The National Longitudinal Transition Study 2012 (NLTS 2012) is the third in a series of studies being conducted by the U.S. Department of Education (ED), with the goal of describing the characteristics, secondary school experiences, transition, and outcomes of youth who receive special education services under IDEA. Phase II of NLTS 2012 will utilize high school and post-high school administrative records data to collect information in three broad areas important to understanding outcomes for youth with disabilities: (1) High school course-taking and completion (2) post-secondary education and training, and (3) employment and earnings after high school. Phase II collected information will build on a survey of a nationally representative set of students with and without IEPs from Phase I of the study to address the following questions:

    • To what extent do youth with disabilities who receive special education services under IDEA make progress through high school compared with other youth, including those identified for services under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act? For students with disabilities, has high school course taking and completion rates changed over the past few decades?

    • Are youth with disabilities achieving the post-high school outcomes envisioned by IDEA, and how do their college, training, and employment rates compare with those of other youth?

    • How do these high school and postsecondary experiences and outcomes vary by student characteristics, including their disability category, age, sex, race/ethnicity, English Learner status, income status, and type of high school attended (including regular public school, charter school, career/technical school, special education school, or other State or Federally-operated institution)?

    The NLTS 2012 sample includes 21,959 students ranging in age from 13 to 21 in December 2011. The sample was selected to include sufficient number of students in each of the 12 federally defined disability categories, and adequate number of students without disabilities, including both students with a Section 504 plan and students with neither an IEP nor a Section 504 plan. To meet the study's objective, data will be collected from the following sources: (1) School district administrative records, including transcripts, from districts participating in NLTS 2012; (2) postsecondary enrollment information through the National Student Clearinghouse, (3) student financial aid data from ED's Federal Student Aid Office (FSA), (4) employment and earnings data from the Social Security Administration (SSA); and (5) information about vocational rehabilitative services and supports youth received from ED's Rehabilitative Services Administration (RSA). Data collection activities expected to result in public burden are the collection of administrative data from school districts and requests for consent from sample members and their parents.

    There are two ways to become involved in the Commission's review of this Project. First, any person wishing to obtain legal status by becoming a party to the proceeding for this project should file with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, 888 First Street NE, Washington, DC 20426, a motion to intervene in accordance with the requirements of the Commission's Rules of Practice and Procedure, 18 CFR 385.214, 385.211 (2016), by the comment date below. A person obtaining party status will be placed on the service list maintained by the Secretary of the Commission, and will receive copies of all documents filed by the applicant and by all other parties. A party must submit filings made with the Commission by mail, hand delivery, or internet, in accordance with Rule 2001 of the Commission's Rules of Practice and Procedure, id. 385.2001. A copy must be served on every other party in the proceeding. Only parties to the proceeding can ask for court review of Commission orders in the proceeding.

    However, a person does not have to intervene to have comments considered. The second way to participate is by filing with the Secretary of the Commission, as soon as possible, an original and two copies of comments in support of or in opposition to this project. The Commission will consider these comments in determining the appropriate action to be taken, but the filing of a comment alone will not serve to make the filer a party to the proceeding. The Commission's rules require that persons filing comments in opposition to the project provide copies of their protests only to the party or parties directly involved in the protest.

    Protests and interventions may be filed electronically via the internet in lieu of paper; see 18 CFR 385.2001(a)(1)(iii) and the instructions on the Commission's website under the “e-filing” link. The Commission strongly encourages electronic filings.

    As of the February 27, 2018 date of the Commission's order in Docket No. CP16-4-001, the Commission will apply its revised practice concerning out-of-time motions to intervene in any new Natural Gas Act section 3 or section 7 proceeding. Persons desiring to become a party to a certificate proceeding are to intervene in a timely manner. If seeking to intervene out-of-time, the movant is required to “show good cause why the time limitation should be waived,” and should provide justification by reference to factors set forth in Rule 214(d)(1) of the Commission's Rules and Regulations.

    If the Commission decides to set the application for a formal hearing before an Administrative Law Judge, the Commission will issue another notice describing that

    This constitutes notice, in accordance with 18 CFR 385.2201(b), of the receipt of prohibited and exempt off-the-record communications.

    Order No. 607 (64 FR 51222, September 22, 1999) requires Commission decisional employees, who make or receive a prohibited or exempt off-the-record communication relevant to the merits of a contested proceeding, to deliver to the Secretary of the Commission, a copy of the communication, if written, or a summary of the substance of any oral communication.

    Prohibited communications are included in a public, non-decisional file associated with, but not a part of, the decisional record of the proceeding. Unless the Commission determines that the prohibited communication and any responses thereto should become a part of the decisional record, the prohibited off-the-record communication will not be considered by the Commission in reaching its decision. Parties to a proceeding may seek the opportunity to respond to any facts or contentions made in a prohibited off-the-record communication, and may request that the Commission place the prohibited communication and responses thereto in the decisional record. The Commission will grant such a request only when it determines that fairness so requires. Any person identified below as having made a prohibited off-the-record communication shall serve the document on all parties listed on the official service list for the applicable proceeding in accordance with Rule 2010, 18 CFR 385.2010.

    Exempt off-the-record communications are included in the decisional record of the proceeding, unless the communication was with a cooperating agency as described by 40 CFR 1501.6, made under 18 CFR 385.2201(e)(1)(v).

    DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY Federal Energy Regulatory Commission [Docket No. CP18-524-000] Notice of Schedule for Environmental Review of the D'Lo Gas Storage, LLC, D'lo Natural Gas Storage Project Amendment

    On July 13, 2018, D'Lo Gas Storage, LLC (DGS) filed an application in Docket No. CP18-524-000 requesting a Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity pursuant to section 7(c) of the Natural Gas Act to construct and operate certain natural gas storage facilities. The proposed project is known as the D'Lo Natural Gas Storage Project Amendment (Project), and would allow DGS to modify its previously certificated project design for the D'Lo Gas Storage Project in Docket No. CP12-39-000 in Simpson and Rankin Counties, Mississippi.

    On July 26, 2018, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (Commission or FERC) issued its Notice of Application for the Project. Among other things, that notice alerted agencies issuing federal authorizations of the requirement to complete all necessary reviews and to reach a final decision on a request for a federal authorization within 90 days of the date of issuance of the Commission staff's Environmental Assessment (EA) for the Project. This instant notice identifies the FERC staff's planned schedule for the completion of the EA for the Project.

    Schedule for Environmental Review Issuance of EA—December 21, 2018 90-day Federal Authorization Decision Deadline—March 21, 2019

    If a schedule change becomes necessary, additional notice will be provided so that the relevant agencies are kept informed of the Project's progress.

    Project Description

    DGS is proposing the following amendments to the originally certificated project design:

    • Elimination of the Gulf South Interconnect Lateral and Gulf South Meter Station facilities; and

    • Relocation of Primary Source Water Wells #2 and #4 and Primary Brine Disposal Wells #2 and #4 approximately 0.4 mile south of their originally proposed locations.

    Background

    On August 27, 2018, the Commission issued a Notice of Intent to Prepare an Environmental Assessment for the Proposed D'Lo Natural Gas Storage Project Amendment and Request for Comments on Environmental Issues (NOI). The NOI was sent to affected landowners; federal, state, and local government agencies; elected officials; environmental and public interest groups; Native American tribes; other interested parties; and local libraries and newspapers. In response to the NOI, the Commission received one comment from the Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks. The primary issues raised by the commentor are impacts on state or federally listed species and species of special concern that may occur in the Project area. All substantive comments will be addressed in the EA.

    Additional Information

    In order to receive notification of the issuance of the EA and to keep track of all formal issuances and submittals in specific dockets, the Commission offers a free service called eSubscription. This can reduce the amount of time you spend researching proceedings by automatically providing you with notification of these filings, document summaries, and direct links to the documents. Go to www.ferc.gov/docs-filing/esubscription.asp.

The Settlement requires A&L to pay $1,611,788.29 (plus an additional sum for interest on that amount calculated from March 31, 2018 through the date of payment to EPA) for EPA's Past Response Costs within 45 days of the Effective Date of the Settlement.

    The Settlement includes an EPA covenant not to sue the settling party and contribution protection, pursuant to Sections 107(a), 113(f)(2), and 122(h)(4) of CERCLA, 42 U.S.C. Sections 9607(a), 9613(f)(2), and 9622(h)(4).

    II. Opportunity To Comment A. General Information

    For thirty (30) days following the date of publication of this notice, the Agency will receive written comments relating to the Settlement. The Agency will consider all comments received and may modify or withdraw its consent to the Settlement if comments received disclose facts or considerations which indicate that the Settlement is inappropriate, improper, or inadequate.

    B. Where do I send my comments or view responses?

    Your comments should be mailed to Mike Rafati, Superfund Division (SR-5J), U. S. Environmental Protection Agency, Region 5, 77 W Jackson Boulevard, Chicago, Illinois 60604, or [email protected] The Agency's response to any comments received will be available for public inspection at the Superfund Records Center.

    C. What should I consider as I prepare my comments for EPA?

    1. Submitting Confidential Business Information (CBI). Do not submit such information to EPA through an agency website or via email. Clearly mark the part or all the information that you claim to be CBI. For CBI information in a disk or CD-ROM that you mail to EPA, mark the outside of the disk or CD-ROM as CBI and then identify electronically within the disk or CD-ROM the specific information that is claimed as CBI. In addition to one complete version of the comment that includes information claimed as CBI, a copy of the comment that does not contain the information claimed as CBI must be submitted for inclusion in the public docket. Information so marked will not be disclosed except in accordance with procedures set forth in 40 CFR part 2.

    2. Tips for Preparing Your Comments. When submitting comments, remember to:

    • Identify the rulemaking by docket number and other identifying information (site name, Federal Register date and page number).

    FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT:

    Ms. Mahruba Uddowla, Procurement Analyst, at telephone 703-605-2868, or email [email protected]

    SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

    A. Purpose

    This information collection requirement, OMB Control No. 9000-0149, currently titled “Subcontract Consent,” is proposed to be retitled “Subcontract Consent and Contractors' Purchasing System Review,” due to consolidation with currently approved information collection requirement OMB Control No. 9000-0132, Contractors' Purchasing System Review.

    This clearance covers the information that a contractor must submit to comply with the requirements in Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) 52.244-2, Subcontracts, regarding consent to subcontract, advance notification, and Contractors' purchasing system review as follows:

    1. Consent to subcontract. This is the contracting officer's written consent for the prime contractor to enter into a particular subcontract. In order for the contracting officer responsible for consent to make an informed decision, the prime contractor must submit adequate information to ensure that the proposed subcontract is appropriate for the risks involved and consistent with current policy and sound business judgment. The review allows the Government to determine whether the contractor's purchasing policies and practices are efficient and adequately protect the Government's interests.

    If the contractor has an approved purchasing system, consent is required for subcontracts specifically identified by the contracting officer in the subcontracts clause of the contract. The contracting officer may require consent to subcontract if the contracting officer has determined that an individual consent action is required to protect the Government adequately because of the subcontract type, complexity, or value, or because the subcontract needs special surveillance. These can be subcontracts for critical systems, subsystems, components, or services.

    If the contractor does not have an approved purchasing system, consent to subcontract is required for cost-reimbursement, time-and-materials, labor-hour, or letter contracts, and also for unpriced actions under fixed-price contracts that exceed the simplified acquisition threshold.

    2. Advance notification. Prime contractors must provide contracting officers notification before the award of any cost-plus-fixed-fee subcontract, or certain fixed-price subcontracts. This requirement for advance notification is driven by statutory requirements in 10 U.S.C. 2306 and 41 U.S.C. 3905.

    3. Contractors' Purchasing System Review. The objective of a contractor purchasing system review (CPSR), is to evaluate the efficiency and effectiveness with which a contractor spends Government funds and complies with Government policy when subcontracting.

    Paragraph (i) of FAR clause 52.244-2 specifies that the Government reserves the right to review the contractor's purchasing system as set forth in FAR subpart 44.3. FAR 44.302 requires the administrative contracting officer (ACO) to determine the need for a CPSR based on, but not limited to, the past performance of the contractor, and the volume, complexity and dollar value of subcontracts. If a contractor's sales to the Government (excluding competitively awarded firm-fixed-price and competitively awarded fixed-price with economic price adjustment contracts and sales of commercial items pursuant to Part 12) are expected to exceed $25 million during the next 12 months, the ACO will perform a review to determine if a CPSR is needed. Sales include those represented by prime contracts, subcontracts under Government prime contracts, and modifications. Generally, a CPSR is not performed for a specific contract. The head of the agency responsible for contract administration may raise or lower the $25 million review level if it is considered to be in the Government's best interest. Once an initial determination has been made to conduct a review, at least every three years the ACO shall determine whether a purchasing system review is necessary. If necessary, the cognizant contract administration office will conduct a purchasing system review.

    A CPSR provides the administrative contracting officer (ACO) a basis for granting, withholding, or withdrawing approval of a contractor's purchasing system. An approved purchasing system allows the contractor more autonomy in subcontracting actions. Without an approved purchasing system more Government oversight is necessary, and Government consent to subcontract is required. Generally, a CPSR is not performed for a specific contract. Rather, CPSRs are conducted on contractors based on the factors identified above.

    The cognizant ACO is responsible for granting, withholding, or withdrawing approval of a contractor's purchasing system and for promptly notifying the contractor of same (FAR 44.305-1).

    Related administrative requirements are as follows: FAR 44.305-2(c) requires that when recommendations are made for improvement of an approved system, the contractor shall be requested to reply within 15 days with a position regarding the recommendations. FAR 44.305-3(b) requires when approval of the contractor's purchasing system is withheld or withdrawn, the ACO shall within 10 days after completing the in-plant review (1) inform the contractor in writing, (2) specify the deficiencies that must be corrected to qualify the system for approval, and (3) request the contractor to furnish within 15 days a plan for accomplishing the necessary actions. If the plan is accepted, the ACO shall make a follow-up review as soon as the contractor notifies the ACO that the deficiencies have been corrected.

    SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

    The GSA, FHWA, and MaineDOT will have copies of the DSEIS for review at the Town of Madawaska Town Office on 328 St. Thomas Street, Suite 1012, Madawaska, Maine 04756. Further information, including an electronic copy of the Draft SEIS, may be found online on the following website: https://www.gsa.gov/about-us/regions/welcome-to-the-new-england-region-1/buildings-and-facilities/development-projects/madawaska-land-port-of-entry-madawaska-me.

    Background

    The purpose of the project is to provide for the long-term safe and efficient flow of current and projected traffic volumes, including the movement of goods and people between Edmundston, New Brunswick and Madawaska, Maine. The need is that (1) the existing International Bridge is nearing the end of its useful life, and (2) the existing Madawaska Land Port of Entry is substandard, inhibiting the agencies assigned to the Port from adequately fulfilling their respective missions.

    The existing Madawaska-Edmundston International Bridge, opened in 1921, and its design life has been exceeded. Notable bridge deficiencies are (1) substandard roadway width and clearance, (2) foundation susceptible to undermining, (3) piers cracked and deteriorated, (4) significant steel corrosion, (5) bridge capacity is insufficient, and (6) deficiencies prompting the bridge posting on October 27, 2017, from 50 tons to 5 tons.

    A Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) and Record of Decision (ROD) were published in January 2007, which addressed the construction of a new Madawaska LPOE.

    Built in 1959, the current LPOE suffers from facility, operational and site deficiencies, and does not meet current CBP mission and operational requirements for an LPOE. A few noted deficiencies: (1) Lack of office and inspection areas, (2) deficient inbound and outbound passenger and commercial processing areas, (3) inadequate queuing space for vehicles, and (4) inability to meet the Architectural Barriers Act. In furtherance of the LPOE Project, GSA previously acquired approximately nine acres of land but did not commence construction.

    A Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (SEIS) is needed due to a change in circumstance, specifically the decision by MaineDOT and New Brunswick Department of Transportation and Infrastructure (NBDTI) to initiate the Madawaska-Edmundston International Bridge project. The SEIS will address changes to the Proposed Action, including an updated design in accordance with current GSA and CBP requirements, and options for rehabilitation or replacement of the International Bridge (the totality of which may require additional land acquisition).

    The Proposed Action consists of replacing the existing International Bridge and the existing Madawaska LPOE to improve safety, security, and functionality.

    The new LPOE would consist of a main administration building and support building with parking, circulation and processing areas. The new LPOE would be designed in accordance with the requirements and criteria of the GSA and CBP to provide facilities adequate for fulfilling the agencies' respective missions. Portions of Mill Street and Main Street adjacent to the LPOE may be reconstructed or re-profiled to provide smooth ingress and egress to the LPOE. The Proposed Action may include the demolition of the existing LPOE.

    The Proposed Action may include the demolition of the existing International Bridge.

    This DSEIS evaluates a no action alternative and several build alternatives for the LPOE and International Bridge. No alternative has been identified as the preferred alternative. However, a preferred location for the new LPOE and a preferred corridor for a new International Bridge have been selected. A no-build alternative is being studied that evaluates the consequences of not constructing the new International Bridge and LPOE. This alternative is included to provide a basis for comparison to the action alternatives described above as required by the NEPA regulations (40 CFR 1002.14(d)).

    The GSA, FHWA, and MaineDOT invite individuals, organizations, and agencies to submit comments concerning the content and findings of the DSEIS. The public comment period starts with the publication of this notice in the Federal Register and will continue until January 31, 2019. The GSA, FHWA, and MaineDOT will consider and respond to comments received on the DSEIS in preparing the Final SEIS. The GSA, FHWA and MaineDOT expect to issue the Final SEIS by spring 2019, at which time its availability will be announced in the Federal Register and local media.

The information on predecessors is used to identify such entities in the Federal Awardee Performance and Integrity Information System (FAPIIS) to allow retrieval of integrity and performance data on the most recent predecessor of an apparent successful offeror to whom award is anticipated. FAR 9.104-6 requires contracting officers to consult FAPIIS before awarding a contract in excess of the simplified acquisition threshold. The information on predecessors is collected on an annual basis for inclusion in the annual representations and certifications in the System for Award Management (SAM) for offerors required to register in SAM. Offerors not required to register in SAM but required to provide the information in the provision at FAR 52.204-20 will do so as specified in the solicitation or instructed by the contracting officer.

    B. Public Comment

    A 60 day notice was published in the Federal Register at 83 FR 47342, on September 19, 2018. One comment was received; however, it did not change the estimate of the burden. The commenter supports the information collection requirement as an important step in bringing greater transparency and efficiency to the federal acquisition process.

    Comment: The commenter is concerned that offerors are not complying with the information collection requirement and they must be held accountable for their representations and certifications. The commenter suggested that to do so, the government should periodically audit vendor-entered FAPIIS and SAM data quality and address non-compliance through a system of sanctions ranging from warning letters to monetary fines, or through the suspension and debarment process. The commenter also suggested expanding the information collection requirement to include the names of key individuals associated with the offeror company and any past relationships they had with entities that received contracts or grants.

    Response: This comment is out of scope because the suggestions made by the commenter would require additional rulemaking. They did not express an opinion on whether the stated number of burden hours is accurate for what they believe to be the actual number of hours an offeror expends to comply with the provision.

    C. Annual Reporting Burden

    The burden to provide the information required by the FAR provision at 52.204-20 when an offeror is registered in SAM is already covered by OMB Control Number 9000-0159, System for Award Management Registration (SAM). OMB Control Number 9000-0189 now will cover the burden for providing the required information when the offeror is not required to register in SAM in accordance with the exceptions in FAR 4.1102(a). The Federal Procurement Data System (FPDS) for FY 2017 was used to develop the estimated burden hours as shown below:

    Respondents: 974.

    Responses per Respondent: 1.

    Total Annual Responses: 974.

    Hours per Response: 0.1.

    Total Burden Hours: 97.4.

    Affected Public: Businesses or other for-profit and not-for-profit institutions.

    A. Purpose

    It is the Government's policy to try to resolve all contractual issues by mutual agreement at the contracting officer's level without litigation. Reasonable efforts should be made to resolve controversies prior to submission of a contractor's claim. The Contract Disputes Act of 1978 (41 U.S.C. 7103) requires that claims exceeding $100,000 must be accompanied by a certification that (1) the claim is made in good faith; (2) supporting data are accurate and complete; and (3) the amount requested accurately reflects the contract adjustment for which the contractor believes the Government is liable. The information, as required by FAR clause 52.233-1, Disputes, is used by a contracting officer to decide or resolve the claim. Contractors may appeal the contracting officer's decision by submitting written appeals to the appropriate officials.

    SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

    Interested persons are invited to send comments regarding this burden estimate or any other aspect of this collection of information, including any of the following subjects: (1) The necessity and utility of the proposed information collection for the proper performance of the agency's functions; (2) the accuracy of the estimated burden; (3) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (4) the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology to minimize the information collection burden.

    Title of the Collection: Implementation of an Electronic Spreadsheet-Based Uniform Data Set for OMH-funded Activities.

    Type of Collection: Revision.

    OMB No.: 0990-0275; Office of the Secretary, Office of Minority Health.

    Abstract: The Office of Minority Health is seeking an approval on a revision to a currently approved collection OMB # 0990-0275. The revised data collection activities seeks to further streamline the current questions grantees are asked by reducing the number of questions, and reduce the cost of the data collection system by using a more cost efficient alternative to the Performance Data System, (PDS) web-based portal. The overall reduction in questions will reduce the number of burden hours on grantees. The movement from a customized web-based portal to reporting using commercial, off-the shelf software (i.e., a spreadsheet) significantly reduces the cost of performance data collection and reporting. To collect program management and performance data for all OMH-funded projects, grantee data collection via the Uniform Data Set, UDS (original data collection system) was first approved by OMB on June 7, 2004 (OMB No. 0990-275).

    Need and Proposed Use of the Information: The clearance is needed to continue performance data collection to enable OMH to comply with Federal reporting requirements, monitor, and evaluate performance by enabling the efficient collection of performance-oriented data tied to OMH-wide performance reporting needs. The ability to monitor and evaluate performance in this manner, and to work towards continuous program improvement are basic functions that OMH must be able to accomplish in order to carry out its mandate with the most effective and appropriate use of resources.

    Likely Respondents: Respondents for this data collection include the project directors for OMH-funded projects and/or the date entry persons for each OMH-funded project. Affected public includes non-profit institutions, State, Local, or Tribal Governments.

    SUMMARY:

    This document provides notice that U.S. Customs and Border Protection (“CBP”) has issued a final determination concerning the country of origin of the Airlift PTTD Brace. CBP has concluded that the country of origin of the Airlift PTTD Brace is Mexico for the purpose of U.S. Government procurement.

    DATES:

    The final determination was issued on November 23, 2018. A copy of the final determination is attached. Any party-at-interest, as defined in 19 CFR 177.22(d), may seek judicial review of this final determination within January 2, 2019

    FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT:

    Joy Marie Virga, Valuation and Special Programs Branch, Regulations and Rulings, Office of Trade (202) 325-1511.

    SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

    Notice is hereby given that on 11/23/18, CBP issued a final determination concerning Airlift PTTD Brace, which may be offered to the United States Government under an undesignated government procurement contract. The final determination, HQ H299701, was issued at the request of DJO, LLC, under procedures set forth at 19 CFR part 177, subpart B, which implements Title III of the Trade Agreements Act of 1979, as amended (19 U.S.C. 2511-18). In the final determination, CBP concluded that the aircell produced in Mexico imparts the final product with its essential character. Further, the assembly operations completed in Mexico permanently attach the various parts to each other so that they lose their individual identities and become part of the completed Airlift. Therefore, the country of origin for purposes of U.S. Government procurement of the Airlift PTTD Brace is Mexico.

    Section 177.29, CBP Regulations (19 CFR 177.29), provides that notice of final determinations shall be published in the Federal Register within 60 days of the date the final determination is issued. Section 177.30, CBP Regulations (19 CFR 177.30), provides that any party-at-interest, as defined in 19 CFR 177.22(d), may seek judicial review of a final determination within 30 days of publication of such determination in the Federal Register.

Caligur Baker & Hostetler, LLP 811 Main St., Suite 1100 Houston, TX 77002-6111 RE: U.S. Government Procurement; Title III, Trade Agreements Act of 1979 (19 U.S.C. § 2511); Subpart B, Part 177, CBP Regulations; Country of Origin of Airlift PTTD Brace Dear Mr. Caligur,

    This is in response to your request of June 11, 2018 requesting a final determination regarding the country of origin of the Airlift PTTD Brace (“Airlift”) on behalf of DJO, LLC (“DJO”) pursuant to subpart B of Part 177, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (“CBP”) Regulations (19 C.F.R. § 177.21, et seq.). As a domestic producer of merchandise, DJO is a party-at-interest within the meaning of 19 C.F.R. § 177.22(d) and is entitled to request this final determination.

    You requested confidential treatment for certain information contained in your submission and in the file. Pursuant to 19 C.F.R. § 177.2(b)(7), the identified information has been bracketed and will be redacted in the public version of this ruling.

    FACTS:

    DJO is a global provider of orthopedic devices, including a broad range of products used for rehabilitation, pain management and physical therapy. The Airlift, one of the items that DJO develops, is designed for the treatment of posterior tibial tendon dysfunction (“PTTD”), or for early signs and symptoms of the adult acquired flat foot. A sample of the finished article and photographs of the components were submitted with your request. The Airlift is essentially a brace that covers the ankle and foot. Depending on the severity of the patient's condition, the Airlift can be prescribed for use as part of a conservative treatment to stabilize the foot and ankle to help prevent further degeneration. It can also be prescribed for use post-surgically and during rehabilitation. The Airlift is produced in three sizes for both the left and right foot with varying dimensions, but all have the same structure and composition and are manufactured using the process described below. Foot support and ankle stabilization are provided by the Airlift's integrated aircell and semi-rigid shells. The aircell, located under the foot arch, is integral to preventing and rehabilitating flat foot. The aircell is adjustable using a hand bulb, which is included with the brace. When inflated, the aircell can accommodate variances in arch shapes and heights. The semi-rigid shells are anatomically designed to the shape of the ankle for secure support and stabilization. These shells help realign the ankle and support the patient. The Airlift uses a rear entry design which allows the patient to slip his or her foot into the back of the brace. Two hook and loop straps secure the brace and can be used to adjust fit. These design elements eliminate the need for lacing, improve patient compliance and make the Airlift easier to put on than custom braces.

    The Airlift is produced from the following components: a form assembly from [country A], a springloaded valve from [country B], a hand bulb from [country A], an aircell from Mexico, tubing from [country C], a pneumatic coupler from [country D], an elbow from [country D], resin polyether from [country D], colorant from [country D], foam from [country C], polyurethane laminate from [country D], and polyurethane film from [country D]. Production of the Airlift takes place at DJO's facility in Tijuana, Mexico. DJO produces the aircells in Mexico using laminate polyurethane from [country D], stuffing them with foam and sewing the sides closed. DJO places the pneumatic coupling on the fixture. DJO connects the tubing to the pneumatic coupling. DJO places the aircell on the fixture to assemble the side of pneumatic coupling in the aircell tubing. DJO then inserts the completed aircells into the wrap, ensuring that the tubing is exposed and open. DJO then places the elbow and valve into the pneumatic fixtures to create an assembly, which is also placed into the wrap and connected to the tubing. The Airlift is then packaged into a box along with the hand bulb and instructional information, which is labeled for shipping.

    You state that the Airlift is classified under subheading 9021.10.00, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (“HTSUS”), which provides for “Orthopedic appliances, including crutches, surgical belts and trusses; splints and other fracture appliances; artificial parts of the body; hearing aids and other appliances which are worn or carried, or implanted in the body, to compensate for a defect or disability; parts and accessories thereof; Orthopedic or fracture appliances, and parts and accessories thereof.”

    ISSUE:

    What is the country of origin of the Airlift for purposes of U.S. Government Procurement?

    LAW AND ANALYSIS:

    CBP issues country of origin advisory rulings and final determinations as to whether an article is or would be a product of a designated country or instrumentality for the purposes of granting waivers of certain “Buy American” restrictions in U.S. law or practice for products offered for sale to the U.S. Government, pursuant to subpart B of Part 177, 19 C.F.R. § 177.21 et seq., which implements Title III of the Trade Agreements Act of 1979, as amended (19 U.S.C. § 2511 et seq.).

    Under the rule of origin set forth under 19 U.S.C. § 2518(4)(B):

    An article is a product of a country or instrumentality only if (i) it is wholly the growth, product, or manufacture of that country or instrumentality, or (ii) in the case of an article which consists in whole or in part of materials from another country or instrumentality, it has been substantially transformed into a new and different article of commerce with a name, character, or use distinct from that of the article or articles from which it was so transformed. See also 19 C.F.R. § 177.22(a).

    In determining whether the combining of parts constitutes a substantial transformation, the determinative issue for CBP is the extent of operations performed and whether the parts lose their identity and become an integral part of the new article. Belcrest Linens v. United States, 6 C.I.T. 204 (1983), aff'd, 741 F.2d 1368 (Fed. Cir. 1984). Assembly operations that are minimal or simple, as opposed to complex or meaningful, will generally not result in a substantial transformation. See Headquarters Ruling Letter (“HQ”) H125975, dated January 19, 2011. CBP considers the totality of the circumstances and makes such determinations on a case-by-case basis.

    The Court of International Trade has also applied the “essence test” to determine whether the identity of an article is changed through assembly or processing. For example, in Uniroyal, Inc. v. United States, 3 C.I.T. 220, 225 (1982), aff'd, 702 F.2d 1022 (Fed. Cir. 1983), the court held that imported shoe uppers added to an outer sole in the United States were the “very essence of the finished shoe” and thus were not substantially transformed into a product of the United States. Further, the court noted that the attachment of the outsole to the upper was a minor manufacturing or combining process which left the identity of the upper intact.

    Here, the manufacturing operations that combine the Airlift into a finished product are completed at DJO's facility in Mexico and cause the various parts to lose their individual identities. In Mexico, DJO creates the tubing used to inflate the aircell, cuts the laminate polyurethane to size and shape for the aircell, fills the aircell with foam, and sews it closed. DJO then connects the tubing into the aircell using a coupler and plastic elbow, after which the aircell is sewn into the Airlift. This processing permanently attaches the various parts to each other so that they lose their individual identities and become part of the completed Airlift.

    Further, similar to the shoe upper in Uniroyal, the aircell imparts the essence of the brace as it is the part that provides arch support to prevent or reduce adult onset flat foot, and supports the ankle to treat PTTD. While the form assembly is imported with lateral stays that work to immobilize the ankle, it is not until the insertion of the aircell that the Airlift is suitable for treatment of these conditions. Therefore, a customer is likely to make the decision to purchase the Airlift based on the function of the aircell.

    As such, we find the manufacture of the aircell in Mexico and additional processing to create a fully functioning brace results in a substantial transformation of the components such that the country of origin for government procurement purposes is Mexico.

    HOLDING:

    The country of origin of the Airlift for purposes of U.S. Government procurement is Mexico.

    Notice of this final determination will be given in the Federal Register, as required by 19 C.F.R. § 177.29. Any party-at-interest other than the party which requested this final determination may request, pursuant to 19 C.F.R. §177.31, that CBP reexamine the matter anew and issue a new final determination. Pursuant to 19 CFR 177.30, any party-at-interest may, within 30 days of publication of the Federal Register Notice referenced above, seek judicial review of this final determination before the Court of International Trade.

    DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY U.S. Customs and Border Protection Notice of Issuance of Final Determination Concerning Certain Jet Fuel AGENCY:

    U.S. Customs and Border Protection, Department of Homeland Security.

    ACTION:

    Notice of final determination.

    SUMMARY:

    This document provides notice that U.S. Customs and Border Protection (“CBP”) has issued a final determination concerning the country of origin of certain jet fuel. Based upon the facts presented, CBP has concluded that the country of origin of this jet fuel is India for purposes of U.S. Government procurement.

    DATES:

    The final determination was issued on November 23, 2018. A copy of the final determination is attached. Any party-at-interest, as defined in 19 CFR 177.22(d), may seek judicial review of this final determination within January 2, 2019.

    FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT:

    Teresa M. Frazier, Valuation and Special Programs Branch, Regulations and Rulings, Office of Trade (202) 325-0139.

    SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

    Notice is hereby given that on 11/23/18, pursuant to subpart B of Part 177, U.S. Customs and Border Protection Regulations (19 CFR part 177, subpart B), CBP issued a final determination concerning the country of origin of certain jet fuel, which may be offered to the U.S. Government under an undesignated government procurement contract. This final determination, HQ H272678, was issued under procedures set forth at 19 CFR part 177, subpart B, which implements Title III of the Trade Agreements Act of 1979, as amended (19 U.S.C. 2511-18). In the final determination, CBP concluded that the processing in India results in a substantial transformation. Therefore, the country of origin of the jet fuel is India for purposes of U.S. Government procurement. Section 177.29, CBP Regulations (19 CFR 177.29), provides that a notice of final determination shall be published in the Federal Register within 60 days of the date the final determination is issued. Section 177.30, CBP Regulations (19 CFR 177.30), provides that any party-at-interest, as defined in 19 CFR 177.22(d), may seek judicial review of a final determination within 30 days of publication of such determination in the Federal Register.

    Dated: November 23, 2018. Alice A. Kipel, Executive Director,Regulations and Rulings, Office of Trade. H292678 November 23, 2018 OT:RR:CTF:VS H292678 TMF CATEGORY: Origin Patrick Devaney, Director ANOI, Inc. 111 W. Ocean Blvd, Suite 1590 Long Beach, CA 90802 Re: U.S. Government Procurement; Country of Origin of Jet Fuel; Title III, Trade Agreements Act of 1979 (19 U.S.C. § 2511, et seq.); Subpart B, Part 177, CBP Regulations Dear Mr. Devaney:

    This is in response to your letter dated December 2, 2017, requesting a final determination, on behalf of your company, ANOI, Inc., concerning the country of origin of certain jet fuel pursuant to subpart B of Part 177 of the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (“CBP”) Regulations (19 C.F.R. § 177.21 et seq.). ANOI, Inc., submitted an electronic ruling request to the National Commodity Specialist Division (“NCSD”) which was sent to our office.

    We note that Anoi is a party-at-interest within the meaning of 19 C.F.R. § 177.22(d)(1) and is entitled to request this final determination.

    FACTS:

    Anoi, Inc. produces jet fuel (identified as JP5) in India from U.S. or Mexican petroleum crude oil. The JP5 is intended to be sold to the U.S. Defense Logistics Agency (“DLA”) in a solicitation that requires compliance with the Trade Agreements Act of 1979 (“TAA”). In your submission, you state that an intermediate grade, western Texas and/or Mexican oil will be imported to the Reliance Refinery in Jamnagar, India. At the refinery, you state that “there will be a `one-step' transformation of crude to straight-run distillate.” The process consists of desalting and heating the crude, and then distilling out the sulfur from the middle distillate kerosene with the use of a Merox Oxidation unit that removes the sulfur from the kerosene jet fuel. DLA also requires certain additives to achieve JP5 jet fuel MILSPEC.

    ISSUE:

    What is the country of origin of the JP5 jet fuel for purposes of U.S. Government procurement?

    LAW AND ANALYSIS:

    CBP issues country of origin advisory rulings and final determinations as to whether an article is or would be a product of a designated country or instrumentality for the purposes of granting waivers of certain “Buy American” restrictions in U.S. law or practice for products offered for sale to the U.S. Government, pursuant to subpart B of Part 177, 19 C.F.R. § 177.21 et seq., which implements Title III of the Trade Agreements Act of 1979, as amended (19 U.S.C. § 2511 et seq.).

    Under the rule of origin set forth under 19 U.S.C. § 2518(4)(B):

    An article is a product of a country or instrumentality only if (i) it is wholly the growth, product, or manufacture of that country or instrumentality, or (ii) in the case of an article which consists in whole or in part of materials from another country or instrumentality, it has been substantially transformed into a new and different article of commerce with a name, character, or use distinct from that of the article or articles from which it was so transformed. See also 19 C.F.R. § 177.22(a).

    A substantial transformation occurs when an article emerges from a process with a new name, character, and use different from that possessed by the article prior to processing. A substantial transformation will not result from a minor manufacturing or combining process that leaves the identity of the article intact. See United States v. Gibson-Thomsen Co., 27 C.C.P.A. 267 (1940); and National Juice Products Ass'n v. United States, 628 F. Supp. 978 (Ct. Int'l Trade 1986).

    You claim that the country of origin is either the United States or Mexico for two reasons. First, you state that the source of crude is “an embargo issue for feedstock in the Solicitation.” Second, you claim there is no “double transformation” as in CBP Headquarters Ruling Letters (“HQ”) 555032, dated September 23, 1988 and HQ 562387, dated July 30, 2002, because the processes in those situations involved “old technology”/mixture-based processes that consisted of hydro-desulfurization, platformers and naptha-blends. However, in this case, ANOI, Inc. proposes to refine, by the process of distillation, and additional processes, U.S. or Mexican origin, petroleum crude oil at the Reliance Petroleum Refinery in Jamnagar, India into U.S. JP5 specification jet fuel. You state that a “straight-run” process occurs because it uses a Merox filter unit that involves no chemical mixing except for inclusion of the JP5 additive, which is required by DLA. Accordingly, you claim no substantial transformation occurs in India.

    In this case, we find the JP5 specification jet fuel is clearly a new and different article with a new name, character, and use from that of the petroleum crude oil from which it was refined. Although there may be no double substantial transformation, the process to create jet fuel from straight crude oil to straight-run distillate still involves desalting and the application of heat distillation coupled with the utilization of the Merox Oxidation unit to remove sulfur, which results in the creation of jet fuel. According to our Laboratories and Scientific Services Directorate, the petroleum crude oil is substantially transformed into JP5 by the petroleum refining process of distillation. This finding is consistent with our decision in HQ 555032, where a first substantial transformation was found to occur after distillation. Therefore, we find the country of origin of the produced JP5 will be the country in which the substantial transformation (distillation) occurs, namely India.

    HOLDING:

    Based upon the specific facts of this case, the country of origin of the JP5 jet fuel for purposes of U.S. Government procurement will be India.

    Notice of this final determination will be given in the Federal Register, as required by 19 C.F.R. § 177.29. Any party-at-interest other than the party which requested this final determination may request, pursuant to 19 C.F.R. § 177.31, that CBP reexamine the matter anew and issue a new final determination. Pursuant to 19 C.F.R. § 177.30, any party-at-interest may, within 30 days of publication of the Federal Register Notice referenced above, seek judicial review of this final determination before the Court of International Trade.

    Sincerely,

    Alice A. Kipel, Executive Director, Regulations & Rulings, Office of Trade.

    I have determined that the damage in certain areas of the State of Alabama resulting from Hurricane Michael during the period of October 10 to October 13, 2018, is of sufficient severity and magnitude to warrant a major disaster declaration under the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act, 42 U.S.C. 5121 et seq. (the “Stafford Act”). Therefore, I declare that such a major disaster exists in the State of Alabama.

    In order to provide Federal assistance, you are hereby authorized to allocate from funds available for these purposes such amounts as you find necessary for Federal disaster assistance and administrative expenses.

    You are authorized to provide Public Assistance in the designated areas and Hazard Mitigation throughout the State. Consistent with the requirement that Federal assistance be supplemental, any Federal funds provided under the Stafford Act for Hazard Mitigation will be limited to 75 percent of the total eligible costs. Federal funds provided under the Stafford Act for Public Assistance also will be limited to 75 percent of the total eligible costs, with the exception of projects that meet the eligibility criteria for a higher Federal cost-sharing percentage under the Public Assistance Alternative Procedures Pilot Program for Debris Removal implemented pursuant to section 428 of the Stafford Act.

    Further, you are authorized to make changes to this declaration for the approved assistance to the extent allowable under the Stafford Act.

    The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) hereby gives notice that pursuant to the authority vested in the Administrator, under Executive Order 12148, as amended, Gerard M. Stolar, of FEMA is appointed to act as the Federal Coordinating Officer for this major disaster.

    The following areas of the State of Alabama have been designated as adversely affected by this major disaster:

    Geneva, Henry, Houston, and Mobile Counties for Public Assistance.

    DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY Federal Emergency Management Agency [Docket ID FEMA-2018-0002; Internal Agency Docket No. FEMA-B-1867] Changes in Flood Hazard Determinations AGENCY:

    Federal Emergency Management Agency, DHS.

    ACTION:

    Notice.

    SUMMARY:

    This notice lists communities where the addition or modification of Base Flood Elevations (BFEs), base flood depths, Special Flood Hazard Area (SFHA) boundaries or zone designations, or the regulatory floodway (hereinafter referred to as flood hazard determinations), as shown on the Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs), and where applicable, in the supporting Flood Insurance Study (FIS) reports, prepared by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) for each community, is appropriate because of new scientific or technical data. The FIRM, and where applicable, portions of the FIS report, have been revised to reflect these flood hazard determinations through issuance of a Letter of Map Revision (LOMR), in accordance with Federal Regulations. The LOMR will be used by insurance agents and others to calculate appropriate flood insurance premium rates for new buildings and the contents of those buildings. For rating purposes, the currently effective community number is shown in the table below and must be used for all new policies and renewals.

    DATES:

    These flood hazard determinations will be finalized on the dates listed in the table below and revise the FIRM panels and FIS report in effect prior to this determination for the listed communities.

    From the date of the second publication of notification of these changes in a newspaper of local circulation, any person has 90 days in which to request through the community that the Deputy Associate Administrator for Insurance and Mitigation reconsider the changes. The flood hazard determination information may be changed during the 90-day period.

    ADDRESSES:

    The affected communities are listed in the table below. Revised flood hazard information for each community is available for inspection at both the online location and the respective community map repository address listed in the table below. Additionally, the current effective FIRM and FIS report for each community are accessible online through the FEMA Map Service Center at https://msc.fema.gov for comparison.

    Submit comments and/or appeals to the Chief Executive Officer of the community as listed in the table below.

    FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT:

    Rick Sacbibit, Chief, Engineering Services Branch, Federal Insurance and Mitigation Administration, FEMA, 400 C Street SW, Washington, DC 20472, (202) 646-7659, or (email) [email protected]; or visit the FEMA Map Information eXchange (FMIX) online at https://www.floodmaps.fema.gov/fhm/fmx_main.html.

    SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

    The specific flood hazard determinations are not described for each community in this notice. However, the online location and local community map repository address where the flood hazard determination information is available for inspection is provided.

    Any request for reconsideration of flood hazard determinations must be submitted to the Chief Executive Officer of the community as listed in the table below.

    The modifications are made pursuant to section 201 of the Flood Disaster Protection Act of 1973, 42 U.S.C. 4105, and are in accordance with the National Flood Insurance Act of 1968, 42 U.S.C. 4001 et seq., and with 44 CFR part 65.

    The FIRM and FIS report are the basis of the floodplain management measures that the community is required either to adopt or to show evidence of having in effect in order to qualify or remain qualified for participation in the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP).

    These flood hazard determinations, together with the floodplain management criteria required by 44 CFR 60.3, are the minimum that are required. They should not be construed to mean that the community must change any existing ordinances that are more stringent in their floodplain management requirements. The community may at any time enact stricter requirements of its own or pursuant to policies established by other Federal, State, or regional entities. The flood hazard determinations are in accordance with 44 CFR 65.4.

    The affected communities are listed in the following table. Flood hazard determination information for each community is available for inspection at both the online location and the respective community map repository address listed in the table below. Additionally, the current effective FIRM and FIS report for each community are accessible online through the FEMA Map Service Center at https://msc.fema.gov for comparison.

    Abstract: The General Mining Law (30 U.S.C. 29, 30, and 39) authorizes a holder of an unpatented claim for hardrock minerals to apply for fee title (patent) to the federal land (as well as minerals) embraced in the claim. Since 1994, a rider on the annual appropriation bill for the Department of the Interior has prevented the BLM from processing mineral patent applications unless the applications were grandfathered under the initial legislation. While grandfathered applications are rare at present, the approval to collect the information continues to be necessary because of the possibility that the moratorium will be lifted.

    Title of Collection: Mineral Surveys, Mineral Patent Applications, Adverse Claims, Protests, and Contests.

    OMB Control Number: 1004-0025.

    Form Number: 3860-2 and 3860-5.

    Type of Review: Extension of currently approved collection.

    Abstract: The Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act of 1990 (25 U.S.C. 3001-3013) requires all public and private museums receiving Federal funds (other than the Smithsonian Institution) to compile summaries, inventories, and notices regarding Native American cultural items in their possession or control.

Under NAGPRA and its implementing regulations, we are mandated to collect any information that is pertinent in determining the cultural affiliation and geographical origin of Native American human remains and cultural items. This include descriptions, acquisition data, and records of consultation. Once the identity and cultural affiliation of human remains and cultural items are determined, the museum must send written notice of determination to the affected Indian tribes or Native Hawaiian organizations and the NAGPRA Program for publication in the Federal Register.

    Abstract: The National Register of Historic Places (National Register) is the official Federal list of districts, sites, buildings, structures, and objects significant in American history, architecture, archeology, engineering, and culture. National Register properties have significance to the history of communities, States, or the Nation. The National Historic Preservation Act of 1966 requires the Secretary of the Interior to maintain and expand the National Register, and to establish criteria and guidelines for including properties on the National Register. National Register properties must be considered in the planning for Federal or federally assisted projects, and listing in the National Register is required for eligibility for Federal rehabilitation tax incentives. The NPS administers the National Register. Nominations for listing historic properties come from State Historic Preservation Officers (SHPO), from Federal Preservation Officers (FPO), for properties owned or controlled by the United States Government, and from Tribal Historic Preservation Officers (THPO), for properties on tribal lands. Private individuals and organizations, local governments, and American Indian tribes often initiate this process and prepare the necessary documentation. Regulations at 36 CFR 60 and 63 establish the criteria and guidelines for listing and for determining the eligibility of properties.

    United States International Trade Commission.

    ACTION:

    Notice.

    SUMMARY:

    The Commission hereby gives notice that it has instituted a review pursuant to the Tariff Act of 1930 (“the Act”), as amended, to determine whether revocation of the antidumping duty order on steel nails from China would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury. Pursuant to the Act, interested parties are requested to respond to this notice by submitting the information specified below to the Commission.

    DATES:

    Instituted December 3, 2018. To be assured of consideration, the deadline for responses is January 2, 2019. Comments on the adequacy of responses may be filed with the Commission by February 14, 2019.

    FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT:

    Mary Messer (202-205-3193), Office of Investigations, U.S. International Trade Commission, 500 E Street SW, Washington, DC 20436. Hearing-impaired persons can obtain information on this matter by contacting the Commission's TDD terminal on 202-205-1810. Persons with mobility impairments who will need special assistance in gaining access to the Commission should contact the Office of the Secretary at 202-205-2000. General information concerning the Commission may also be obtained by accessing its internet server (https://www.usitc.gov). The public record for this proceeding may be viewed on the Commission's electronic docket (EDIS) at https://edis.usitc.gov.

    SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

    Background.— On August 1, 2008, the Department of Commerce issued an antidumping duty order on imports of steel nails from China (73 FR 44961). Following the first five-year reviews by Commerce and the Commission, effective January 10, 2014, Commerce issued a continuation of the antidumping duty order on imports of steel nails from China (79 FR 1830). The Commission is now conducting a second review pursuant to section 751(c) of the Act, as amended (19 U.S.C. 1675(c)), to determine whether revocation of the order would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury to the domestic industry within a reasonably foreseeable time. Provisions concerning the conduct of this proceeding may be found in the Commission's Rules of Practice and Procedure at 19 CFR parts 201, subparts A and B and 19 CFR part 207, subparts A and F. The Commission will assess the adequacy of interested party responses to this notice of institution to determine whether to conduct a full review or an expedited review. The Commission's determination in any expedited review will be based on the facts available, which may include information provided in response to this notice.

    Definitions.—The following definitions apply to this review:

    (1) Subject Merchandise is the class or kind of merchandise that is within the scope of the five-year review, as defined by the Department of Commerce.

    (2) The Subject Country in this review is China.

    (3) The Domestic Like Product is the domestically produced product or products which are like, or in the absence of like, most similar in characteristics and uses with, the Subject Merchandise. In its original determination and its expedited first five-year review determination, the Commission defined a single Domestic Like Product consisting of certain steel nails, coextensive with Commerce's scope.

    (4) The Domestic Industry is the U.S. producers as a whole of the Domestic Like Product, or those producers whose collective output of the Domestic Like Product constitutes a major proportion of the total domestic production of the product. In its original determination, the Commission defined the Domestic Industry as producers of the Domestic Like Product, and it found appropriate circumstances to exclude three firms from the Domestic Industry as related parties (Senco, Specialty Fastening, and Stanley Fastening Systems, LP). In its expedited first five-year review determination, the Commission defined the Domestic Industry to include all domestic producers of steel nails.

    (5) An Importer is any person or firm engaged, either directly or through a parent company or subsidiary, in importing the Subject Merchandise into the United States from a foreign manufacturer or through its selling agent.

    Participation in the proceeding and public service list.—Persons, including industrial users of the Subject Merchandise and, if the merchandise is sold at the retail level, representative consumer organizations, wishing to participate in the proceeding as parties must file an entry of appearance with the Secretary to the Commission, as provided in section 201.11(b)(4) of the Commission's rules, no later than 21 days after publication of this notice in the Federal Register. The Secretary will maintain a public service list containing the names and addresses of all persons, or their representatives, who are parties to the proceeding.

    Former Commission employees who are seeking to appear in Commission five-year reviews are advised that they may appear in a review even if they participated personally and substantially in the corresponding underlying original investigation or an earlier review of the same underlying investigation. The Commission's designated agency ethics official has advised that a five-year review is not the same particular matter as the underlying original investigation, and a five-year review is not the same particular matter as an earlier review of the same underlying investigation for purposes of 18 U.S.C. 207, the post employment statute for Federal employees, and Commission rule 201.15(b) (19 CFR 201.15(b)), 79 FR 3246 (Jan. 17, 2014), 73 FR 24609 (May 5, 2008). Consequently, former employees are not required to seek Commission approval to appear in a review under Commission rule 19 CFR 201.15, even if the corresponding underlying original investigation or an earlier review of the same underlying investigation was pending when they were Commission employees. For further ethics advice on this matter, contact Charles Smith, Office of the General Counsel, at 202-205-3408.

    Limited disclosure of business proprietary information (BPI) under an administrative protective order (APO) and APO service list.—Pursuant to section 207.7(a) of the Commission's rules, the Secretary will make BPI submitted in this proceeding available to authorized applicants under the APO issued in the proceeding, provided that the application is made no later than 21 days after publication of this notice in the Federal Register. Authorized applicants must represent interested parties, as defined in 19 U.S.C. 1677(9), who are parties to the proceeding. A separate service list will be maintained by the Secretary for those parties authorized to receive BPI under the APO.

    Certification.—Pursuant to section 207.3 of the Commission's rules, any person submitting information to the Commission in connection with this proceeding must certify that the information is accurate and complete to the best of the submitter's knowledge.

    Legal Authority

    Section 201 of the Controlled Substances Act (21 U.S.C. 811) authorizes the Attorney General, by regulation, to exempt from certain provisions of the CSA certain compounds, mixtures, or preparations containing a controlled substance, if he finds that such compounds, mixtures, or preparations meet the requirements detailed in 21 U.S.C. 811(g)(3)(B).1 The DEA regulations at 21 CFR 1308.23 and 1308.24 further detail the criteria by which the DEA Assistant Administrator may exempt a chemical preparation or mixture from certain provisions of the CSA. The Assistant Administrator may, pursuant to 21 CFR 1308.23(f), modify or revoke the criteria by which exemptions are granted and modify the scope of exemptions at any time.

    1 This authority has been delegated from the Attorney General to the Administrator of the DEA by 28 CFR 0.100, and subsequently redelegated to the Deputy Assistant Administrator pursuant to 28 CFR 0.104 and Section 7 of the appendix to subpart R of part 0.

    Exempt Chemical Preparation Applications Submitted Between January 1, 2017, and June 30, 2018

    The Assistant Administrator received applications between January 1, 2017, and June 30, 2018, requesting exempt chemical preparation status detailed in 21 CFR 1308.23. Pursuant to the criteria stated in 21 U.S.C. 811(g)(3)(B) and in 21 CFR 1308.23, the Assistant Administrator has found that each of the compounds, mixtures, and preparations described in Chart I below is intended for laboratory, industrial, educational, or special research purposes and not for general administration to a human being or animal and either: (1) Contains no narcotic controlled substance and is packaged in such a form or concentration that the packaged quantity does not present any significant potential for abuse; or (2) contains either a narcotic or non-narcotic controlled substance and one or more adulterating or denaturing agents in such a manner, combination, quantity, proportion, or concentration that the preparation or mixture does not present any potential for abuse; if the preparation or mixture contains a narcotic controlled substance, it must be formulated in such a manner that it incorporates methods of denaturing or other means so that the preparation or mixture is not liable to be abused or have ill effects, if abused, and so that, the narcotic substance cannot in practice be removed.

    Accordingly, pursuant to 21 U.S.C. 811(g)(3)(B), 21 CFR 1308.23, and 21 CFR 1308.24, the Assistant Administrator has determined that each of the chemical preparations or mixtures generally described in Chart I below and specifically described in the application materials received by the DEA, is exempt, to the extent described in 21 CFR 1308.24, from application of sections 302, 303, 305, 306, 307, 308, 309, 1002, 1003, and 1004 (21 U.S.C. 822-823, 825-829, and 952-954) of the CSA, and 21 CFR 1301.74, as of the date that was provided in the approval letters to the individual requesters.

    Scope of Approval

    The exemptions are applicable only to the precise preparation or mixture described in the application submitted to the DEA in the form(s) listed in this order and only for those sections of the CSA and the CFR that are specifically identified. In accordance with 21 CFR 1308.24(h), any change in the quantitative or qualitative composition of the preparation or mixture, or change in the trade name or other designation of the preparation or mixture after the date of application requires a new application. In accordance with 21 CFR 1308.24(g), the DEA may prescribe requirements other than those set forth in § 1308.24(b)-(e) on a case-by-case basis for materials exempted in bulk quantities. Accordingly, in order to limit opportunity for diversion from the larger bulk quantities, the DEA has determined that each of the exempted bulk products listed in this order may only be used in-house by the manufacturer, and may not be distributed for any purpose, or transported to other facilities.

    Additional exempt chemical preparation requests received between January 1, 2017, and June 30, 2018, and not otherwise referenced in this order may remain under consideration until the DEA receives additional information required, pursuant to 21 CFR 1308.23(d), as detailed in separate correspondence to individual requesters. The DEA's order on such requests will be communicated to the public in a future Federal Register publication.

    The DEA also notes that these exemptions are limited to exemption from only those sections of the CSA and the CFR that are specifically identified in 21 CFR 1308.24(a). All other requirements of the CSA and the CFR apply, including registration as an importer as required by 21 U.S.C. 957.

    Opportunity for Comment

    Pursuant to 21 CFR 1308.23, any interested person may submit written comments on or objections to any chemical preparation in this order that has been approved or denied as exempt. If any comments or objections raise significant issues regarding any finding of fact or conclusion of law upon which this order is based, the Assistant Administrator will immediately suspend the effectiveness of any applicable part of this order until he may reconsider the application in light of the comments and objections filed.

    Approved Exempt Chemical Preparations Are Posted on the DEA's Website

    A list of all current exemptions, including those listed in this order, is available on the DEA's website at http://www.DEAdiversion.usdoj.gov/schedules/exempt/exempt_chemlist.pdf. The dates of applications of all current exemptions are posted for easy reference.

    Dated: November 19, 2018. John J. Martin, Assistant Administrator.
