This action finalizes the residual risk and technology review (RTR) conducted for the Ferroalloys Production source category regulated under national emission standards for hazardous air pollutants (NESHAP). These final amendments include revisions to particulate matter (PM) standards for electric arc furnaces, metal oxygen refining processes, and crushing and screening operations, and expand and revise the requirements to control process fugitive emissions from furnace operations, tapping, casting, and other processes. We are also finalizing opacity limits, as proposed in 2014. However, regarding opacity monitoring, in lieu of Method 9, we are requiring monitoring with the digital camera opacity technique (DCOT). Furthermore, we are finalizing emissions standards for four previously unregulated hazardous air pollutants (HAP): Formaldehyde, hydrogen chloride (HCl), mercury (Hg) and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH). Other requirements related to testing, monitoring, notification, recordkeeping, and reporting are included. This rule is health protective due to the revised emissions limits for the stacks and the requirement of enhanced fugitive emissions controls that will achieve significant reductions of process fugitive emissions, especially manganese.

Agency: Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection
The Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection (Bureau or CFPB) amends the regulation defining larger participants of certain consumer financial product and service markets by adding a new section to define larger participants of a market for automobile financing. The new section defines a market that includes: grants of credit for the purchase of an automobile; refinancings of such obligations (and subsequent refinancings thereof) that are secured by an automobile; automobile leases; and purchases or acquisitions of any of the foregoing obligations. The Bureau issues this rule pursuant to its authority, under the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (Dodd-Frank Act), to supervise certain nonbank covered persons for compliance with Federal consumer financial law and for other purposes. The Bureau has the authority to supervise nonbank covered persons of all sizes in the residential mortgage, private education lending, and payday lending markets. In addition, the Bureau has the authority to supervise nonbank ``larger participant[s]'' of markets for other consumer financial products or services, as the Bureau defines by rule. This final rule identifies a market for automobile financing and defines as larger participants of this market certain nonbank covered persons that will be subject to the Bureau's supervisory authority. It also defines certain automobile leases as a ``financial product or service'' under section 1002(15)(A)(xi)(II) of the Dodd-Frank Act. Finally, this final rule makes certain technical corrections to existing larger-participant rules.

Agency: National Archives and Records Administration, Agencies and Commissions
The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) publishes notice at least once monthly of certain Federal agency requests for records disposition authority (records schedules). Once approved by NARA, records schedules provide mandatory instructions on what happens to records when no longer needed for current Government business. They authorize agencies to preserve records of continuing value in the National Archives of the United States and to destroy, after a specified period, records lacking administrative, legal, research, or other value. NARA publishes notice for records schedules in which agencies propose to destroy records not previously authorized for disposal or reduce the retention period of records already authorized for disposal. NARA invites public comments on such records schedules, as required by 44 U.S.C. 3303a(a).

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA or Agency) is seeking public comment on whether the uses of ozone-depleting substances (ODSs), including chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs), in certain FDA-regulated products currently designated essential are no longer essential under the Clean Air Act due to the availability of alternatives that do not use CFCs or because the products are no longer being marketed. Essential-use products are exempt from FDA's ban on the use of CFC propellants in FDA-regulated products and the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA's) ban on the use of CFCs in pressurized dispensers. FDA is seeking public comment because it is responsible for determining which FDA-regulated products that release CFCs or other ODSs are essential uses under the Clean Air Act. FDA is soliciting comments to assist the Agency in striking an appropriate balance that will best protect the public health, both by ensuring the availability of an adequate number of alternatives and by curtailing the release of ODSs.

The Office of Fossil Energy (FE) of the Department of Energy (DOE) gives notice of receipt of an application (Application), filed on February 9, 2015, by Venture Global Calcasieu Pass, LLC (Calcasieu Pass), requesting long-term, multi-contract authorization to export liquefied natural gas (LNG) produced from domestic sources in a volume equivalent to approximately 132.8 billion cubic feet per year (Bcf/yr) of natural gas (0.36 Bcf/day). Calcasieu Pass seeks authorization to export the LNG by vessel from the proposed Venture Global Calcasieu Pass Project, a natural gas liquefaction and LNG export terminal to be located on the Calcasieu Ship Channel in Cameron Parish, Louisiana (Project). Calcasieu Pass requests authorization to export this LNG to any country with which the United States does not have a free trade agreement (FTA) requiring national treatment for trade in natural gas, and with which trade is not prohibited by U.S. law or policy (non-FTA countries).\1\ Calcasieu Pass states that the requested export volume (132.8 Bcf/yr) is incremental and therefore additive to the volume of LNG requested for export in its two non-FTA export applications currently pending in DOE/FE Docket Nos. 13-69-LNG and 14-88-LNG (originally filed by Venture Global).\2\ In the current Application, Calcasieu Pass requests the authorization for a 25-year term to commence on the earlier of the date of first export or seven years from the date the authorization is granted. Calcasieu Pass seeks to export this LNG on its own behalf and as agent for other entities who hold title to the LNG at the time of export. The Application was filed under section 3 of the Natural Gas Act (NGA). Additional details can be found in Calcasieu Pass's Application, posted on the DOE/FE Web site at: http://energy.gov/sites/prod/files/2015/06/f23/15_25_lng.pdf.

The Office of Fossil Energy (FE) of the Department of Energy (DOE) gives notice of receipt of an application (Application), filed by Air Flow North America Corp. (Air Flow), on December 16, 2014, and subsequently amended. In the Application, Air Flow requests long-term, multi-contract authorization to export domestically produced liquefied natural gas (LNG) by use of approved ISO IMO7-TVAC-ASME LNG (ISO) containers transported on ocean-going carriers to any country located within South America, Central America, the Caribbean, or Africa with which the United States does not have a free trade agreement (FTA) that requires national treatment for trade in natural gas, and with which trade is not prohibited by U.S. law or policy (non-FTA countries). Air Flow seeks authorization to export the LNG on its own behalf in a volume equivalent to approximately 0.67 billion cubic feet (Bcf) per year of natural gas, or 0.002 Bcf per day. Air Flow states that it will obtain its LNG supplies from Clean Energy Fuel Corp. (Clean Energy), and seeks authorization to export the LNG by vessel from Clean Energy's existing LNG production facility located in Willis, Texas, which Air Flow states has the capability to load LNG onto trucks and ISO containers.\1\ Air Flow states that the LNG would be loaded into its ISO containers; transported via trucks to a seaport in Houston, Texas; then exported by ocean-going cargo vessel from one or more ports in the Southeastern United States (including ports in Texas, Florida, and Louisiana). Air Flow also requests authorization to load at any other U.S. port that is now or in the future will be capable of loading ISO containers. Air Flow asks for the requested authorization to be effective on the date when the order is signed, and to extend until July 31, 2021.\2\ The Application was filed under section 3(a) of the Natural Gas Act (NGA). Additional details can be found in Air Flow's Application, posted on the DOE/FE Web site at: http://energy.gov/fe/ downloads/air-flow-north-america-corp-fe-dkt-no-14-206-lng.
