Federal Register Highlights – 9/16/14

September 16, 2014

Unpublished, time-sensitive and proposed rules for September 16, 2014:

PROPOSED RULE: The Energy Policy and Conservation Act of 1975 (EPCA), as amended, prescribes energy conservation standards for various consumer products and certain commercial and industrial equipment, including packaged terminal air conditioners (PTACs) and packaged terminal heat pumps (PTHPs). EPCA also requires the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) to determine whether more-stringent, amended standards would be technologically feasible and economically justified, and would save a significant amount of energy. In this document, DOE proposes amended energy conservation standards for PTACs and PTHPs. The document also announces a public meeting to receive comment on these proposed standards and associated analyses and results. DATES: DOE will hold a public meeting on Wednesday, October 29, 2014, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., in Washington, DC. The meeting will also be broadcast as a webinar. See section VII, ‘‘Public Participation,’’ for webinar registration information, participant instructions, and information about the capabilities available to webinar participants. DOE will accept comments, data, and information regarding this notice of proposed rulemaking (NOPR) before and after the public meeting, but no later than November 17, 2014. (To submit comments, visit http://www.regulations.gov, reference docket number EERE–2012–BT–STD–0029. Commenting page was not available at the time of this posting.)

PROPOSED RULE: In this Third Further Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (Third Further Notice), the Commission seeks comment on technical issues related to the provision of enhanced location information and support for roaming for texts to 911, as well as the capabilities of future texting services. Comments received will inform the Commission of the technological and business issues related to the provision of location and roaming support for text-to-911, and how text-to-911 may be applied to future texting services. If the proposals are adopted, they will enhance existing text-to-911 service and lead to improved emergency response. Submit comments on or before October 16, 2014 and reply comments by November 17, 2014. (To submit comments, visit http://www.regulations.gov, reference PS Docket No. 10–255 or PS Docket No. 11–153. Commenting page was not available at the time of this posting.)
