Federal Register Highlights – 1/13/15

January 13, 2015

Unpublished, time-sensitive and proposed rules for January 13, 2015:

PROPOSED RULE: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is proposing to revise provisions of the Arizona Regional Haze (RH) Federal Implementation Plan (FIP) applicable to the Nelson Lime Plant. In response to a request for  reconsideration from the plant’s owner, Lhoist North America of Arizona, Inc. (LNA), we propose to replace the control technology demonstration requirements for nitrogen oxides (NOX) applicable to Kilns 1 and 2 at the Nelson Lime Plant with a series of revised recordkeeping and reporting requirements. Lastly, we are proposing a correction in the regulatory  language of the final rule where a table listing the pollution emission limits for NOX and sulfur dioxide (SO2) at each kiln  was misprinted. We are seeking comment on each of these proposed actions. Written comments must be submitted on or before February 27, 2015. (To submit comments, visit http://www.regulations.gov.

PROPOSED RULE: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is proposing to approve state implementation plan (SIP) revisions submitted by California to address Clean Air Act (CAA or Act) requirements for the 2006 24-hour fine particulate matter (PM2.5) national ambient air quality standard (NAAQS) in the San Joaquin Valley (SJV) Moderate PM2.5 nonattainment area. These SIP revisions are the 2012 PM2.5 Plan, submitted March 4, 2013, and the Supplement, submitted November 6, 2014. The EPA is also proposing to disapprove interpollutant trading ratios identified in these SIP submittals for nonattainment new source review permitting purposes. Finally, the EPA is proposing to reclassify the SJV area, including Indian country within it, as a Serious nonattainment area for the 2006 PM2.5 NAAQS based on EPA’s determination that the area cannot practicably attain this standard by the applicable Moderate area attainment date of December 31, 2015. Upon final reclassification as a Serious area, California will be required to submit a Serious area plan including a demonstration that the plan provides for attainment of the 2006 PM2.5 NAAQS in the SJV area by the applicable Serious area attainment date, which is no later than December 31, 2019, or by the most expeditious alternative date practicable, in accordance with the requirements of part D of title I of the CAA. Any comments must arrive by February 27, 2015.

PROPOSED RULE: The FAA proposes to amend the reciprocal waivers of claims regulations so that customers would waive claims against all the customers involved in a launch or reentry, including those signing a different set of reciprocal waivers. Also, customers of any customer contracting directly with a licensee or permittee would not have to sign a waiver directly with the licensee or permittee, other customers, or the FAA. The FAA also proposes to add an appendix to provide permittees with an example of a Waiver of Claims and Assumption of Responsibility for Permitted Activities with No  Customer. The proposed rule would incorporate the reciprocal waiver of claims requirements in the regulatory text, ensure that customers would waive claims against all other customers involved in a launch or reentry, including those signing different reciprocal waivers, reduce the need for licensees and permittees to request a partial waiver of the reciprocal waiver of claims requirements and for the FAA to process those requests, and provide a reciprocal waiver template for permittees with no customers, reducing the need for the FAA to assist such a permittee in drafting its cross waivers. Send comments on or before March 16, 2015.

PROPOSED RULE: This document requests comments on a Petition for Rule Making filed by Charles Crawford, proposing to amend the FM Table of Allotments, Section 73.202(b) of the Commission’s Rules, by allotting Channel 295A at Wright City, Oklahoma, as the community’s first local service. A staff engineering analysis indicates that Channel 295A can be  allotted to Wright City consistent with the minimum distance separation requirements of the Commission’s Rules with a site restriction located 14 kilometers (8.6 miles) east of the community. The reference coordinates are 34–04–44 NL and 94–51–15 WL. Comments must be filed on or before February 9, 2015, and reply comments on or before February 24, 2015. (Submit comments in writing to: Secretary, Federal Communications Commission, 445 12th Street SW., Washington, DC 20554. In addition to filing comments with the FCC, interested parties should serve the petitioner as follows: Charles Crawford, 2215 Cedar Springs Rd., #1605, Dallas, Texas 75201.)
