Depletion of stratospheric ozone results in greater transmission of the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) radiation to the earth’s surface.

Allowing continuing U.S. production to meet developing countries’ basic domestic needs, including their need for pharmaceutical-grade CFCs, avoids the need for those countries to install new ODS manufacturing facilities. The amount of CFCs that will be released to the atmosphere should remain the same regardless of the manufacturing location. In addition, avoiding the installation of new capacity is one means of ensuring that production levels continue to decline. Thus, this proposed rule is not expected to increase the impacts on children’s health from stratospheric ozone depletion. H. Executive Order No. 13211: Actions That Significantly Affect Energy Supply, Distribution, or Use This proposed rule is not a ‘‘significant energy action’’ as defined in Executive Order No. 13211, ‘‘Actions Concerning Regulations That Significantly Affect Energy Supply, Distribution, or Use’’ (66 FR 28355 (May 22, 2001)) because it is not a significant VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:59 Aug 22, 2006 Jkt 208001 regulatory action under Executive Order 12866. I. National Technology Transfer Advancement Act Section 12(d) of the National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act of 1995 (‘‘NTTAA’’), Public Law. 104–113, Section 12(d) (15 U.S.C. 272 note) directs EPA to use voluntary consensus standards in its regulatory activities unless to do so would be inconsistent with applicable law or otherwise impractical. Voluntary consensus standards are technical standards (e.g., materials specifications, test methods, sampling procedures, and business practices) that are developed or adopted by voluntary consensus standards bodies. The NTTAA directs EPA to provide Congress, through OMB, explanations when the Agency decides not to use available and applicable voluntary consensus standards. This proposed rule does not involve technical standards. Therefore, EPA did not consider the use of any voluntary consensus standards.

Maintenance and Repair Reimbursement Pilot Program

AGENCY: Maritime Administration, DOT.

ACTION: Notice of opening of reply comment period.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Maritime Administration (MARAD) is amending its 
regulations governing its pilot program for the reimbursement of costs 
of qualified maintenance and repair (M&R) of Maritime Security Program 
(MSP) vessels performed in United States shipyards. Under Public Law 
109-163, the Secretary of Transportation, acting through the Maritime 
Administrator, is directed to implement regulations that, among other 
things, replace MARAD's voluntary M&R reimbursement program with a 
mandatory system.
    The notice of proposed rulemaking for this action was published in 
the Federal Register on February 8, 2006 (71 FR 6438). Several of the 
comments received argued that MARAD lacks authority to unilaterally add 
to existing MSP agreements the added obligation on the part of the MSP 
contractor to enter into an M&R Pilot Program agreement. In order to 
have a full airing of this fundamental issue, MARAD is hereby giving 
notice that we have decided to open a reply comment period for this 
rulemaking. Reply comments may address the issue highlighted above or 
any other issue raised in the original set of comments received in this 
docket.
