Melons Grown in South Texas; Temporary Suspension of Handling and Assessment Collection Regulations
Document Number: 05-3389
Type: Rule
Date: 2005-02-23
Agency: Agricultural Marketing Service, Department of Agriculture
The Department of Agriculture (USDA) is adopting, as a final rule, without change, an interim final rule suspending, for the 2004-05 fiscal period, the minimum grade, quality, maturity, container, pack, inspection, assessment collection, and other related requirements currently prescribed under the South Texas melon (cantaloupes and honeydews) marketing order (order). It also continues in effect the action that suspends reporting requirements, except for the acreage planting reports, which continue to be required during the suspension period. The order regulates the handling of melons grown in South Texas and is administered locally by the South Texas Melon Committee (Committee). This rule reduces handler costs while the industry evaluates whether the marketing order should be continued.

Prevention of Significant Deterioration for Nitrogen Oxides
Document Number: 05-3366
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2005-02-23
Agency: Environmental Protection Agency
To preserve the air quality in national parks and other areas that are meeting the national ambient air quality standards (NAAQS) for nitrogen dioxide (NO2), EPA is reevaluating the increments for NO2 that were first established in 1988 under its program to prevent significant deterioration of air quality (PSD program). The EPA is initiating this rulemaking action to comply with a 1990 court ruling that directed the Agency to consider and harmonize the statutory criteria for establishing PSD regulations for nitrogen oxides (NOX) contained in sections 166(c) and 166(d) of the Clean Air Act (CAA or Act). After an initial reevaluation of the existing NO2 increments under these statutory criteria, EPA is proposing three options. One proposed option is not to change the existing increments. We are also proposing two other options that would allow States to use alternative approaches in lieu of the existing increments for NO2 to satisfy the statutory criteria for preventing significant deterioration of air quality due to emissions of NOX. These proposed options include implementation of either an EPA-administered cap and trade program or a State planning approach.
Mississippi: Final Authorization of State Hazardous Waste Management Program Revisions
Document Number: 05-3364
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2005-02-23
Agency: Environmental Protection Agency
Mississippi has applied to EPA for Final authorization of the changes to its hazardous waste program under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA). EPA proposes to grant final authorization to Mississippi for RCRA Clusters IV through X. In the ``Rules and Regulations'' section of this Federal Register, EPA is authorizing the changes by an immediate final rule. EPA did not make a proposal prior to the immediate final rule because we believe this action is not controversial and do not expect comments that oppose it. We have explained the reasons for this authorization in the preamble to the immediate final rule. Unless we get written comments which oppose this authorization during the comment period, the immediate final rule will become effective on the date it establishes, and we will not take further action on this proposal. If we get comments that oppose this action, we will withdraw the immediate final rule and it will not take effect. We will then respond to public comments in a later final rule based on this proposal. You may not have another opportunity for comment. If you want to comment on this action, you must do so at this time.
Mississippi: Final Authorization of State Hazardous Waste Management Program Revision
Document Number: 05-3363
Type: Rule
Date: 2005-02-23
Agency: Environmental Protection Agency
Mississippi has applied to EPA for Final authorization of the changes to its hazardous waste program under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA). EPA has determined that these changes satisfy all requirements needed to qualify for Final authorization, and is authorizing the State's changes through this immediate final action. EPA is publishing this rule to authorize the changes without a prior proposal because we believe this action is not controversial and do not expect comments that oppose it. Unless we get written comments which oppose this authorization during the comment period, the decision to authorize Mississippi's changes to its hazardous waste program will take effect. If we get comments that oppose this action, we will publish a document in the Federal Register withdrawing this rule before it takes effect and a separate document in the proposed rules section of this Federal Register will serve as a proposal to authorize the changes.

Pipeline Safety: Response Plans for Onshore Transportation-Related Oil Pipelines
Document Number: 05-3257
Type: Rule
Date: 2005-02-23
Agency: Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration, Department of Transportation
On January 5, 1993, the U.S. Department of Transportation, Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration, Office of Pipeline Safety (OPS) issued an interim final rule establishing oil spill response planning requirements for onshore oil pipelines (49 CFR Part 194). These regulations were issued pursuant to section 1321(j)(5) of the Federal Water Pollution Control Act (FWPCA), as amended by the Oil Pollution Act of 1990 (OPA 90). OPS is now adopting the interim rule as a final rule. This final rule makes minor amendments to some of the regulations in response to the written public comments received after issuance of the interim final rule and at a public meeting held in 1997 in New Orleans, LA. The amendments also reflect the experience that OPS has gained in implementing the rule; leading spill response exercises; and, responding to actual spills and harmonizes certain OPS requirements with related oil spill response regulations developed by the U.S. Coast Guard. The amendments are generally technical in nature and do not involve additional costs to pipeline operators or the public.
