SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In order to secure and protect all documents on display in the National Archives Experience (NAE) from unnecessary exposure to the harmful effects of flash photography and to improve the overall visitor experience, NARA is proposing to ban all photography from exhibit areas in the NAE. The 2003 renovations to the Rotunda exhibit area included the installation of new exhibit cases, which were designed with special glass with high clarity and no colored filters, to improve the ability to see the documents on display. The new display cases provide little protection from the damaging effects of photographic flash. While NARA staff goes to great lengths to adjust the Rotunda light levels to protect documents on display from excess light, public photography with attendant flash works against the efforts to protect the documents. The NAE exhibitions primarily contain paper and parchment documents that are susceptible to the harmful effects of light and in particular to the cumulative effects of photographic flash.

Currently, signage, pamphlets, and security officers inform visitors that flash photography is prohibited in the exhibit areas. Most photographic flash occurs from accidental acts rather than intentional action. However, over the past six years it has proved to be an impossible task to prevent visitors from intentionally or accidentally using additional light. Security officers do escort those visitors out of the building who continue to use flash photography after being warned. But, by the time a security officer makes that decision, at least two or three flashes have already occurred, needlessly exposing documents to excessive light. Numerous visitors’ remarks in the informal visitors’ comment log as well as letters to NARA include apologies for inadvertent flash; complaints that flash disrupts their visit; that flash rules are not effectively enforced; and, that camera use should be banned.

ACTION: Proposed rule. SUMMARY: EPA is proposing to determine that the West Virginia portions of three nonattainment areas for the 1997 fine particulate (PM2.5) National Ambient Air Quality Standard (NAAQS) have clean data for the 1997 PM2.5 NAAQS. These are Berkeley County, part of the HagerstownMartinsburg MD-WV nonattainment area; Wood County, part of the Parkersburg-Marietta WV–OH nonattainment area; and Marshall County and Ohio County, part of the Wheeling WV–OH nonattainment area, hereinafter referred to in this notice as the West Virginia portions of the Hagerstown-Martinsburg, ParkersburgMarietta, and Wheeling PM2.5 nonattainment areas. This proposed determination is based upon quality assured, quality controlled, and certified ambient air monitoring data that show that these areas have monitored attainment of the 1997 PM2.5 NAAQS based on 2006–2008 data. In addition, quality controlled and quality assured monitoring data for 2009 that are available in the EPA Air Quality System (AQS) database, but not yet certified, show these areas continue to have clean data for the 1997 PM2.5 NAAQS. If this proposed determination is made final, the requirements for these areas to submit an attainment demonstration, associated reasonably available measures, a reasonable further progress plan, contingency measures, and other planning State Implementation Plans (SIPs) related to attainment of the standard shall be suspended for so long as the area continues to meet the 1997 PM2.5 NAAQS. DATES: Written comments must be received on or before August 31, 2009. E:\FR\FM\31JYP1.SGM 31JYP1
