Notice of meeting. AGENCY: ACTION: SUMMARY: The United States Coast Guard will meet to discuss the comments received relating to the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) for Kenner Bend Anchorage as published in the Federal Register on Wednesday April 27, 2005. DATES: The meeting will be held on Tuesday, September 13, 2005, from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. This meeting may adjourn early if all business is finished. ADDRESSES: The meeting will be held in the Basement Conference Room at the Hale Boggs Federal Building, 500 Poydras Street, New Orleans, Louisiana. This notice is available on the Internet at http://dms.dot.gov. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Lieutenant Junior Grade (LTJG) Melissa Owens, Waterways Management Division, telephone (504) 589–6196 extension 396, fax (504) 589–4216. Background Runway 1–19 at the Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport is positioned in a north-south line running parallel to the Airport Access Road. Aircraft approaching the runway from the south or departing the runway from the north pass over the Lower Kenner Bend Anchorage. Due to the close proximity of Runway 1–19 to Kenner Bend, aircraft occasionally descend and ascend directly over vessels anchored in the Lower Kenner Bend Anchorage, creating a potentially dangerous situation that is of particular concern during periods of reduced visibility. Aircraft approaching the runway from the south follow a descending glide slope path with a minimum height of 311 feet above mean sea level over the Kenner Bend Anchorage. Certain vessels with cargo handling equipment such as cranes and boom are capable of extending equipment to a height upwards of 300 feet above the waterline. VerDate jul<14>2003 20:26 Aug 05, 2005 Jkt 205001 This amendment to the anchorage regulations for the Mississippi River below Baton Rouge, LA, including South and Southwest Passes is proposed to prohibit vessels that are anchored in the Lower Kenner Bend Anchorage from engaging in cargo transfer operations or exercising any shipboard equipment such as cranes and booms while at anchor. This proposed revision is needed to increase safety at Kenner Bend by reducing the potential for collision between aircraft and vessels anchored in the Lower Kenner Bend Anchorage. Discussion of Issues The Coast Guard received three negative comments to the NPRM for Kenner Bend Anchorage from the Maritime Navigation Safety Association (MNSA), the Steamship Association of Louisiana (SALA), and the New Orleans and Baton Rouge Port (NOBRA) Pilots. All three organizations contend that the complete prohibition against using cargo-handling equipment is excessive, and argue that some operations should be allowed while at anchor. To better express their concerns, all parties requested a public meeting be held. This meeting is open to the public. Please note that the meeting may close early if all business is finished.

ACTION: Proposed rule. AGENCY: PO 00000 Frm 00037 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 45607 SUMMARY: EPA is proposing to take direct final action approving certain revisions to the State Implementation Plan (SIP) as submitted by the Governor of North Dakota with a letter dated April 11, 2003. The revisions affect certain portions of air pollution control rules regarding permitting and prevention of significant deterioration. In the ‘‘Rules and Regulations’’ section of this Federal Register, EPA is approving the State’s SIP revision as a direct final rule without prior proposal because the Agency views this as a noncontroversial SIP revision and anticipates no adverse comments. A detailed rationale for the approval is set forth in the preamble to the direct final rule. If EPA receives no adverse comments, EPA will not take further action on this proposed rule. If EPA receives adverse comments, EPA will withdraw the direct final rule and it will not take effect. EPA will address all public comments in a subsequent final rule based on this proposed rule. EPA will not institute a second comment period on this action. Any parties interested in commenting must do so at this time. Please note that if EPA receives adverse comment on an amendment, paragraph, or section of this rule and if that provision may be severed from the remainder of the rule, EPA may adopt as final those provisions of the rule that are not the subject of an adverse comment. DATES: Written comments must be received on or before September 7, 2005.

AGENCY: ACTION: Proposed rule. SUMMARY: The Environmental Protection Agency is proposing performance specifications (PS) that evaluate the acceptability of predictive emission monitoring systems (PEMS) when used on stationary sources. This PS is needed to provide sources and regulatory agencies with performance criteria for evaluating this new technology. The intended effect of this action is to establish standardized performance requirements that will be used to evaluate candidate PEMS uniformly. The affected industries and their Standard Industrial Classification codes are listed under SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION. In addition, we are proposing to make minor amendments to various testing provisions in the New Source Performance Standards (NSPS) and National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants for Source Categories (MACT) to correct inadvertent errors, make needed updates, and add flexibility. DATES: Comments: Submit comments on or before October 7, 2005. Public Hearing: If anyone contacts us requesting to speak at a public hearing by August 23, 2005, we will hold a public hearing on September 7, 2005. ADDRESSES: Comments. Comments may be submitted electronically, by mail, by facsimile, or through hand delivery/ courier. Follow the detailed instructions as provided in Unit IB of the SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION section.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: General Information A. Affected Entities Predictive emission monitoring systems are not currently required in any Federal rule. However, they may be used under the NSPS to predict nitrogen oxides emissions from small industrial, commercial, and institutional steam generating units. In some cases, PEMS have been approved as alternatives to CEMS for the initial 30-day compliance test at these facilities. Various State and Local regulations are incorporating PEMS as an emission monitoring tool.
