SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In the Federal Register of August 22, 2006, FDA published a proposed rule with a 90-day comment period to request comments on implementing regulations for the indexing provisions of the Minor Use and Minor Species Animal Health Act of 2004. Comments on the proposed rule will inform FDA’s rulemaking to establish regulations for the procedures and criteria for index listing a new animal drug for use in a minor species. The agency has received requests for a 30-day extension of the comment period for the proposed rule. Each request conveyed concern that the current 90-day comment period does not allow sufficient time to develop a meaningful or thoughtful response to the proposed rule. FDA has considered the requests and is extending the comment period for the proposed rule for 30 days, until December 20, 2006. The agency believes that a 30-day extension allows adequate time for interested persons to submit comments without significantly delaying rulemaking on these important issues. II. Request for Comments Interested persons may submit to the Division of Dockets Management (see ADDRESSES) written or electronic comments on this document. Submit a single copy of electronic comments or two paper copies of any mailed comments, except that individuals may submit one paper copy. Comments are to be identified with the docket number found in brackets in the heading of this document. Received comments may be seen in the Division of Dockets Management between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m., Monday through Friday. Dated: September 25, 2006. Jeffrey Shuren, Assistant Commissioner for Policy.

The interstate 8hour ozone nonattainment area is comprised of three counties (Marshall and Ohio Counties, West Virginia (Wheeling) and Belmont County, Ohio (Belmont)). EPA is proposing to approve the ozone redesignation request for the Wheeling portion of the area. In conjunction with its redesignation request, the WVDEP submitted a SIP revision consisting of a maintenance plan for Wheeling that provides for continued attainment of the 8-hour ozone NAAQS for the next 12 years. PO 00000 Frm 00003 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 EPA is proposing to make a determination that Wheeling has attained the 8-hour ozone NAAQS based upon three years of complete, qualityassured ambient air quality ozone monitoring data for 2002–2004.

EPA is providing information on the status of its adequacy determination for the motor vehicle emission budgets (MVEBs) that are identified in the Wheeling maintenance plan for purposes of transportation conformity, and is also proposing to approve those MVEBs.
