ACTION: Proposed rule. cprice-sewell on PROD1PC66 with PROPOSALS AGENCY: SUMMARY: EPA proposes to convert a conditional approval in the West Virginia State Implementation Plan (SIP) to a full approval. The SIP revision pertains to nitrogen oxides (NOX) emission reductions required in West Virginia to meet Phase II of the NOX SIP Call (Phase II). In order to meet the Phase II submission due date, the West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection (WVDEP) adopted its Phase II requirements under its emergency rule procedures. EPA granted conditional approval of the emergency rule contingent upon the WVDEP adopting a permanent rule with an effective date no later than the June 2, 2006 sunset date of its emergency rule and submitting the permanent rule as a formal SIP revision to EPA by July 1, 2006. West Virginia has met all the terms of the conditional approval by adopting its permanent rule with an effective date of May 1, 2006, and submitting the permanent rule to EPA before July 1, 2006. In the Final Rules section of this Federal Register, EPA is converting the conditional approval of the State’s SIP revision to a full approval as a direct final rule without prior proposal because the Agency views this as a noncontroversial submittal and anticipates no adverse comments. A detailed rationale for the approval is set forth in the direct final rule. If no adverse comments are received in response to this action, no further activity is contemplated. If EPA VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:43 Sep 27, 2006 Jkt 208001 receives adverse comments, the direct final rule will be withdrawn and all public comments received will be addressed in a subsequent final rule based on this proposed rule. EPA will not institute a second comment period. Any parties interested in commenting on this action should do so at this time. DATES: Comments must be received in writing by October 30, 2006.

DATES: SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: cprice-sewell on PROD1PC66 with PROPOSALS I. Background On February 7, 1974, the Bureau of Reclamation published 43 CFR Part 421, Rules of Conduct at Hoover Dam, to address matters of security and public conduct at the dam site. On November 12, 2001, Congress enacted Public Law 107–69 (now codified at 43 U.S.C. 373b and 373c), to provide law enforcement authority within Reclamation projects and on Reclamation lands. Section 1(a) of Public Law 107–69 requires Reclamation to issue regulations to maintain law and order and protect persons and property on all Reclamation projects. Pursuant to that statutory requirement, Reclamation issued a final rule, 43 CFR Part 423, Public Conduct on Bureau of Reclamation Lands and Projects, on April 17, 2002, and replaced that rule with a more comprehensive rule on April 17, 2006. Initially, Reclamation concluded that Hoover Dam need not be included under the new public conduct rule because 43 CFR Part 421 was already in VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:43 Sep 27, 2006 Jkt 208001 place and was sufficient to serve the needs of the Hoover Dam area. However, upon further review, Reclamation has determined that it would be desirable to make all Reclamation projects subject to the same set of public conduct regulations. Having a single Reclamation public conduct rule will help reduce possibilities for confusion on the part of visitors to Reclamation projects. Reclamation has also determined that rescinding 43 CFR Part 421 and making the Hoover Dam area subject to the new public conduct rule will not result in significant impacts to the public. II. Procedural Requirements 1. Regulatory Planning and Review (E.O. 12866) The Office of Management and Budget has determined that this document is not a significant rule and has not reviewed this rule under Executive Order 12866.

This rule only addresses public conduct at Hoover Dam. (c) This rule does not alter the budgetary effects of entitlements, grants, user fees, or loan programs or the rights or obligations of their recipients. This rule only addresses public conduct at Hoover Dam. (d) This rule does not raise novel legal or policy issues. This rule only addresses public conduct at Hoover Dam. 2.

The rule does not have a significant or unique effect on State, local, or tribal governments or the private sector. This rule only addresses public conduct at Hoover Dam. A statement containing the information required by the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act (2 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.) is not required. 5.

Specifically, this rule: (a) Does not unduly burden the judicial system; (b) Meets the criteria of section 3(a) requiring that all regulations be reviewed to eliminate errors and ambiguity and be written to minimize litigation; (c) Meets the criteria of section 3(b)(2) requiring that all regulations be written in clear language and contain clear legal standards. 8.

If you feel we have not met these requirements, send us comments as instructed in the ADDRESSES section. To better help us revise the rule, your comments should be as specific as possible.

SUMMARY: The Federal Communications Commission proposes licensing procedures and service rules for satellites providing Direct Broadcast Satellite (DBS) service. The Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) seeks comment on proposals that will apply to any application for authority to provide DBS service in the United States using the 12.2–12.7 GHz band and associated feeder links in the 17.3–17.8 GHz band. This includes both unassigned channels at orbit locations assigned to the United States under the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) Region 2 Broadcasting-Satellite Service (BSS) and feeder-link Plans, and applications for DBS service from space stations located at orbital locations not assigned to the United States in the ITU Region 2 BSS and feeder-link Plans. The NPRM seeks comment on new licensing procedures, including the use of the first-come, first-served process for all DBS applications, regardless of the proposed orbit location. Alternatively, the NPRM requests comment on whether DBS should continue to be licensed outside the scope of the Commission’s first-come, first-served satellite application processing procedures, and if so, what processing framework should be used to license DBS. The NPRM also seeks comment on: What additional issues the Commission should consider in situations involving non-nine-degree spaced DBS applications; whether all the licensing procedures applicable to other satellite services (e.g., performance bonds, milestones, and annual reports) should apply to DBS systems; how to resolve impasses in operator-to-operator coordination negotiations; whether new license terms should be adopted for all current and future U.S.-licensed DBS systems; and other issues, including what, if any, action is needed to address the impact of reduced spacing DBS on other services.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Background

    On February 7, 1974, the Bureau of Reclamation published 43 CFR 
Part 421, Rules of Conduct at Hoover Dam, to address matters of 
security and public conduct at the dam site. On November 12, 2001, 
Congress enacted Public Law 107-69 (now codified at 43 U.S.C. 373b and 
373c), to provide law enforcement authority within Reclamation projects 
and on Reclamation lands. Section 1(a) of Public Law 107-69 requires 
Reclamation to issue regulations to maintain law and order and protect 
persons and property on all Reclamation projects. Pursuant to that 
statutory requirement, Reclamation issued a final rule, 43 CFR Part 
423, Public Conduct on Bureau of Reclamation Lands and Projects, on 
April 17, 2002, and replaced that rule with a more comprehensive rule 
on April 17, 2006.
    Initially, Reclamation concluded that Hoover Dam need not be 
included under the new public conduct rule because 43 CFR Part 421 was 
already in place and was sufficient to serve the needs of the Hoover 
Dam area. However, upon further review, Reclamation has determined that 
it would be desirable to make all Reclamation projects subject to the 
same set of public conduct regulations. Having a single Reclamation 
public conduct rule will help reduce possibilities for confusion on the 
part of visitors to Reclamation projects.
    Reclamation has also determined that rescinding 43 CFR Part 421 and 
making the Hoover Dam area subject to the new public conduct rule will 
not result in significant impacts to the public.
