California State Motor Vehicle Pollution Control Standards; Within-the-Scope Determination for Amendments to California's Low Emission Vehicle Program; Notice of Decision
Document Number: 2010-18791
Type: Notice
Date: 2010-07-30
Agency: Environmental Protection Agency
EPA is confirming that technical amendments promulgated by the California Air Resources Board (CARB) are within-the-scope of existing waivers of preemption for CARB's Low Emission Vehicle (LEV II) program. These technical amendments were adopted by CARB in 2006, and include amendments to California's evaporative emission test procedures, onboard refueling vapor recovery and spitback test procedures, exhaust emission test procedures, and vehicle emission control label requirements. These amendments align each of California's test procedures and label requirements with its federal counterpart, in an effort to streamline and harmonize the California and federal programs. California believes these amendments will reduce manufacturer testing burdens and increase in-use compliance, without compromising the stringency of its numerical LEV II emission standards.

Natural Bristle Paint Brushes and Brush Heads from the People's Republic of China: Final Results of Changed Circumstance Review
Document Number: 2010-18787
Type: Notice
Date: 2010-07-30
Agency: Department of Commerce, International Trade Administration
On June 16, 2010, the Department of Commerce (``Department'') published a notice of initiation and preliminary results of a changed circumstances review with the intent to revoke the antidumping duty order on natural bristle paint brushes and brush heads from the People's Republic of China (``PRC''). In our notice of initiation and preliminary results, we gave interested parties an opportunity to comment; however, none were received. We are now revoking the order based on the fact that domestic parties have expressed a lack of interest in antidumping duty relief from imports of the subject merchandise. Therefore, we will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (``CBP'') to terminate the suspension of liquidation of all unliquidated entries of subject merchandise covered by the scope of the order entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date of these final results in the Federal Register.

Arkansas Valley Conduit (AVC) and Long-Term Excess Capacity Master Contract, Fryingpan-Arkansas Project (Fry-Ark Project) Colorado
Document Number: 2010-18779
Type: Notice
Date: 2010-07-30
Agency: Department of the Interior, Bureau of Reclamation, Reclamation Bureau
Pursuant to section 102(2)(C) of the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) and the Council on Environmental Quality's (CEQ) regulations for implementing the procedural provisions of NEPA, the Bureau of Reclamation (Reclamation) proposes to prepare a draft EIS that analyzes effects associated with construction of the AVC, a proposed feature of the Fryingpan-Arkansas (Fry-Ark) Project, and the issuance of an Excess Capacity Master Contract to Southeastern Colorado Water Conservancy District (Southeastern). The proposed Federal action is to construct the pipeline to provide treated water to the service area in southeastern Colorado. Towns in the service area need to construct new or improved water treatment systems, supplement their current water supply, and/or purchase other water supplies to replace poor quality water. Some also need more water to meet demands of a growing population. The proposed Federal action associated with the Excess Capacity Master Contract is to issue a long-term contract to Southeastern for storage of non-Fry-Ark Project water in Pueblo Reservoir, a feature of the Fry-Ark Project. The water would be used by several water providers within Southeastern's boundaries.

Nevertheless, other businesses identified or referenced in the documents that were submitted to EPA by the submitting business may have a right to assert a CBI claim concerning information that pertains to them and may do so in response to this notice.
