Download as PDF 41654 Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 138 / Wednesday, July 20, 2005 / Proposed Rules SUMMARY: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Region 6 is publishing a notice of intent to delete the Mallard Bay Landing Bulk Plant Superfund Site (Site), located northeast of Grand Chenier in Cameron Parish, Louisiana, from the National Priorities List (NPL). The NPL, promulgated pursuant to section 105 of the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA) of 1980, as amended, is found at Appendix B of 40 CFR part 300 which is the National Oil and Hazardous Substances Pollution Contingency Plan (NCP). The EPA and the State of Louisiana, through the Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality (LDEQ), have determined that all appropriate response actions under CERCLA have been completed. However, this deletion does not preclude future actions under Superfund. In the ‘‘Rules and Regulations’’ section of today’s Federal Register, we are publishing a Direct Final Notice of Deletion of the Mallard Bay Landing Bulk Plant Superfund Site without prior notice of intent to delete because we view this as a noncontroversial revision and anticipate no adverse comment. We have explained our reasons for this deletion in the preamble to the direct final deletion. If we receive no adverse comment(s) on this notice of intent to delete or the Direct Final Notice of Deletion, we will not take further action on this notice of intent to delete. If we receive adverse comment(s), we will withdraw the Direct Final Notice of Deletion, it will not take effect, and as appropriate, address all public comments in a subsequent final deletion notice based on this notice of intent to delete. We will not institute a second comment period on this notice of intent to delete. Any parties interested in commenting must do so at this time. For additional information, see the Direct Final Notice of Deletion which is located in the Rules section of this Federal Register. DATES: Comments concerning this Site must be received by August 19, 2005. ADDRESSES: Written comments should be addressed to: Beverly Negri, Community Involvement Coordinator, U.S. EPA Region 6 (6SF–LP), 1445 Ross Avenue, Dallas, TX 75202–2733, (214) 665–8157 or 1–800–533–3508 (negri.beverly@epa.gov).

2005. In the NPRM, the Commission commenced a broad examination of the 
regulatory framework to apply to price cap local exchange carriers'

sought comment on the special access regime that should follow the

the Commission's pricing flexibility rules for special access services. 
The comment deadline was June 13, 2005, and the reply comment deadline 
is July 12, 2005.
    CompTel/ALTS and the United States Telecom Association (USTA)

allow all parties the opportunity to better evaluate, and respond to, 
the complex economic analyses offered by many commenters in this 
proceeding. On June 13, 2005, the Commission received more than 2,000 
pages of comments from multiple parties, many of which contained data 
submissions and economic analyses. Moreover, there was approximately a 
one-week delay before all of the comments were available on the

of developing a thorough and complete record in this proceeding, the 
Bureau grants the Petitioners' requests, and hereby extends the reply
