Public Notice for Waiver of Aeronautical Land-Use Assurance; Rickenbacker International Airport; Columbus, OH
Document Number: 05-14764
Type: Notice
Date: 2005-07-27
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is considering a proposal to change a portion of the airport from aeronautical use to non-aeronautical use and to authorize the lease of the airport property. The triangular parcel consists of 85.85 acres. The land is currently vacant and being farmed. The land was acquired by the Rickenbacker Port Authority through a Quitclaim Deed dated November 15, 1999 and a Quitclaim Deed dated September 22, 2003 from the United States of America through the Secretary of the Air Force. There are no impacts to the airport by allowing the airport to lease the property. The release of the property is being requested to allow for development into an intermodal transportation facility, along with roadway access. Approval does not constitute a commitment by the FAA to financially assist in the lease of the subject airport property nor a determination of eligibility for grant-in-aid funding from the FAA. The disposition of proceeds from the lease of the airport property will be in accordance with FAA's Policy and Procedures Concerning the Use of Airport Revenue, published in the Federal Register on February 16, 1999. In accordance with section 47107(h) of title 49, United States Code, this notice is required to be published in the Federal Register 30 days before modifying the land-use assurance that requires the property to be used for an aeronautical purpose.

Cyhexatin; Proposed Tolerance Actions
Document Number: 05-14738
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2005-07-27
Agency: Environmental Protection Agency
This document proposes to revoke, under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FFDCA) section 408(e)(1), all existing tolerances for residues of the insecticide/acaricide cyhexatin because they do not meet requirements of FFDCA section 408(b)(2). EPA canceled food use registrations for cyhexatin in 1989. Currently, EPA determined that acute dietary risks from use of cyhexatin on commodities for which import tolerances exist exceed the Agency's level of concern. However, EPA also determined that if the only cyhexatin tolerance is for orange juice, there is a reasonable certainty that no harm to any population subgroup will result from exposure to cyhexatin treated oranges. Because manufacturers support a cyhexatin tolerance on orange juice for purposes of importation and the Agency has made a determination of safety for such a tolerance, EPA is also proposing that, concurrent with the revocation of the citrus fruit group tolerance, an individual time-limited tolerance be established for orange juice. The regulatory actions proposed in this document contribute toward the Agency's tolerance reassessment requirements under FFDCA section 408(q), as amended by the Food Quality Protection Act (FQPA) of 1996. By law, EPA is required by August 2006 to reassess the tolerances that were in existence on August 2, 1996. The regulatory actions proposed in this document pertain to the proposed revocation of 41 tolerances which would be counted as tolerance reassessments toward the August 2006 review deadline.
DCPA; Order to Amend to Terminate Uses
Document Number: 05-14737
Type: Notice
Date: 2005-07-27
Agency: Environmental Protection Agency
This notice announces amendments to terminate certain uses of products containing the pesticide DCPA, pursuant to section 6(f)(1) of the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA), as amended. This notice follows a February 16, 2005 Federal Register Notice of Receipt of Request from the DCPA registrant to voluntarily amend to terminate certain uses of their DCPA product registrations. These are not the last DCPA products registered for use in the United States. In the February 16 Notice, EPA indicated that it would issue an order implementing the amendments to terminate the subject uses, unless the Agency received substantive comments within the 30-day comment period that would merit its further review of the request. The Agency received three substantive comments on the Notice, two of which requested that several use sites proposed for termination be retained. EPA hereby issues in this notice an order to amend the subject registrations to terminate a subset of the uses initially requested for termination by the registrant. Any distribution, sale, or use of the DCPA products subject to this order is permitted only in accordance with the terms of this order, including any existing stocks provisions.

The revised Order would address the submittal of a complete Application for Permit to Drill or Deepen package (APD), including a Drilling Plan, Surface Use Plan of Operations, evidence of bond coverage and Operator Certification.
