Notice of Proposed Withdrawal and Opportunity for Public Meeting; Nevada
Document Number: E7-84
Type: Notice
Date: 2007-01-10
Agency: Department of the Interior, Bureau of Land Management, Land Management Bureau
The Department of Energy (DOE) has filed an application with the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) requesting the Secretary of the Interior to withdraw 208,037 acres of public lands from surface entry and mining through December 27, 2015, to evaluate the lands for the potential construction, operation, and maintenance of a rail line for the transportation of spent nuclear fuel and high-level radioactive waste in the event the Nuclear Regulatory Commission authorizes a geologic repository at Yucca Mountain as provided for under the Nuclear Waste Policy Act of 1982, as amended. This notice segregates the lands from surface entry and mining for up to 2 years while various studies and analyses are made to support a final decision on the withdrawal application.
Airworthiness Directives; Sikorsky Aircraft Corporation Model S-61L, N, R, and NM Helicopters
Document Number: E7-40
Type: Rule
Date: 2007-01-10
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This amendment adopts a new airworthiness directive (AD) for the specified Sikorsky Aircraft Corporation (Sikorsky) model helicopters that requires, within a specified time, creating a component history card or equivalent record. The AD also requires recording the hours time-in-service (TIS) and the external lift cycles (lift cycles) for each main gearbox input left and right freewheel unit (IFWU) assembly. Also, the AD requires calculating a moving average of lift cycles per hour TIS at specified intervals on each IFWU assembly. The moving average is used to determine if an IFWU assembly is used in repetitive external lift (REL) or non-REL helicopter operations. If an IFWU assembly is used in REL operations, this AD requires a visual and dimensional inspection of the IFWU assembly at specified intervals. This AD also requires recording certain information and replacing each part that is beyond the wear limits or that exhibits visual surface distress with an airworthy part. In addition, this AD requires permanently marking the REL IFWU camshafts and gear housings with the letters ``REL'' on the surface of these parts. This amendment is prompted by an accident in which the left and right IFWU assembly on a helicopter slipped or disengaged resulting in both engines over speeding, engine shutdowns, and loss of engine power to the transmissions. The actions specified by this AD are intended to prevent slipping in the IFWU assembly, loss of engine power to the transmissions, and subsequent loss of control of the helicopter.

Approval and Promulgation of Air Implementation Plans; Ohio; Rules to Control Emissions From Hospital, Medical, and Infectious Waste Incinerators
Document Number: E7-178
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2007-01-10
Agency: Environmental Protection Agency
The EPA is proposing to approve, with exceptions noted below, a State plan submitted by Ohio concerning criteria pollutant and toxic emissions from Hospital, Medical and Infectious Waste Incinerators (HMIWI) in the State. EPA is proposing to approve all other items requested in Ohio's letter of October 18, 2005, including limits for a variety of emissions from HMIWI units including mercury, cadmium, lead, hydrogen chloride, and dioxin and criteria pollutants. Ohio prepared a plan based on CAA sections 111(d) and 129 for existing hospital, medical and infectious waste incinerators and asked that it be reviewed and approved as a revision to the State plan. The State's HMIWI plan sets out requirements for affected units at least as stringent as the EPA requirements entitled ``Emission Guidelines (EG) and Compliance Times for Hospital/Medical/ Infectious Waste Incinerators'' published in the Federal Register dated September 15, 1997. For approval, the State plan must include requirements for emission limits at least as protective as those requirements stated in the emission guideline. The rules in the plan apply to existing sources only for which construction commenced on or before June 20, 1996. New sources constructed after this date are covered by a Federal new source performance standard. The Ohio rules, contained in the plan, were proposed on March 22, 2002, and a public hearing was held on April 29, 2002. The rules became effective in Ohio on March 23, 2004. Plans affecting this source category were due from States with HMIWI subject to the emission guidelines on September 15, 1998. Ohio missed the submittal deadline and became subject to the Federal Plan on August 15, 2000, (65 FR 49868). We are proposing to approve the Ohio plan because we believe it meets the requirements of the EPA emission guideline affecting hospital incinerators. Any party interested in commenting on EPA's proposed approval should do so within the timeframe noted below.
Transfer of Title to Facilities, Works, and Lands of the Gila Project, Wellton-Mohawk Division, to the Wellton-Mohawk Irrigation and Drainage District, Yuma County, AZ (Wellton-Mohawk Title Transfer)
Document Number: E7-177
Type: Notice
Date: 2007-01-10
Agency: Department of the Interior, Bureau of Reclamation, Reclamation Bureau
Pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969, as amended, the Bureau of Reclamation (Reclamation) has prepared a Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) to evaluate the potential effects of the proposed Wellton-Mohawk Title Transfer.

Limitations on Withdrawals of Equity Capital
Document Number: E7-173
Type: Rule
Date: 2007-01-10
Agency: Commodity Futures Trading Commission, Agencies and Commissions
The Commodity Futures Trading Commission (``Commission'') is amending its regulations to provide that the Commission may, by written order, temporarily prohibit a futures commission merchant (``FCM'') from carrying out equity withdrawal transactions that would reduce excess adjusted net capital by 30 percent or more. The proposed orders would be based on the Commission's determination that such withdrawal transactions could be detrimental to the financial integrity of FCMs or could adversely affect their ability to meet customer obligations. The proposed amendments also would provide that an FCM may file with the Commission a petition for rescission of an order temporarily prohibiting equity withdrawals from the FCM.
Implementing a Nationwide, Broadband, Interoperable Public Safety Network in the 700 MHz Band
Document Number: E7-171
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2007-01-10
Agency: Federal Communications Commission, Agencies and Commissions
In this document, the FCC seeks comment on proposals that 700 MHz public safety spectrum be allocated for broadband use and that a single, national public safety broadband licensee be assigned this spectrum on a primary basis. Consistent with national priorities focusing on homeland security and broadband, and the Commission's commitment to ensure that emergency first responders have access to reliable and interoperable communications, this NPRM will allow the Commission to compile a record in an effort to determine whether there is a need for changes to the current 700 MHz public safety band plan. This NPRM seeks to promote effective public safety communications and innovation in wireless services in support of public safety and homeland security.
Beauveria Bassiana HF23; Exemption from the Requirement of a Tolerance
Document Number: E7-170
Type: Rule
Date: 2007-01-10
Agency: Environmental Protection Agency
This regulation establishes an exemption from the requirement of a tolerance for residues of the microbial active ingredient Beauveria bassiana HF23 (B. bassiana HF23) on all food and feed commodities when applied/used to treat chicken manure which will eventually be processed and used as fertilizer on agricultural crops. Jabb of the Carolinas submitted a petition to EPA under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FFDCA), as amended by the Food Quality Protection Act of 1996 (FQPA), requesting an exemption from the requirement of a tolerance. This regulation eliminates the need to establish a maximum permissible level for residues of B. bassiana HF23.
Notice of Intent To Prepare an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for Construction and Operation of a Panoramic Survey Telescope and Rapid Response System (Pan-STARRS) at the Summit of Mauna Kea, HI
Document Number: E7-169
Type: Notice
Date: 2007-01-10
Agency: Department of Defense, Department of the Air Force, Air Force Department
Pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969, as amended (42 United States Code 4321, et. seq.), the Council on Environmental Quality Regulations for implementing the procedural provisions of NEPA (40 Code of Federal Regulation (CFR) Parts 1500- 1508), and U.S. Air Force (USAF) policy and procedures (32 CFR part 989), the USAF is issuing this notice to advise the public of its intent to prepare an EIS evaluating potential environmental impacts associated with construction and operation of the proposed Panoramic Survey Telescope and Rapid Response System (Pan-STARRS) by the University of Hawaii (UH) Institute for Astronomy (IfA). Public scoping meetings will be held to assist in identifying reasonable alternatives, their potential impacts and the relative significance of impacts to be analyzed in the EIS. Pan-STARRS is a USAF-funded, UH IfA research program to discover, characterize and track Near-Earth Objects (NEOs), primarily asteroids and comets, whose trajectories pass close enough to Earth that they may pose a danger of collision. Pan-STARRS could also map the large-scale structure of the Universe, searching for astronomical objects that move or change such as exploding stars, variable stars, and planets around other stars. The Pan-STARRS design involves four individual wide-field optical systems, each with a dedicated digital camera. The digital cameras would be the largest ever built. Each night Pan-STARRS would image one-fifth of the visible sky, allowing it to survey the entire visible sky once per week. Exposed images would be downloaded through existing data transmission infrastructure to a UH-operated computer facility for processing and analysis. The UH IfA intends to publish the data generated. Since 2002, the USAF has funded UH IfA's research into the technology behind Pan-STARRS, including fabrication of a single optical system prototype unit and its installation into an existing observatory on Maui. Although the USAF would fund its construction, the Pan-STARRS facility would be owned, operated, and maintained by UH IfA and used for IfA-directed research. The EIS will analyze three alternatives: rebuilding an existing IfA observatory for Pan-STARRS use at the preferred site on Mauna Kea on the island of Hawaii, constructing a new observatory at an undeveloped site on Haleakala on the island of Maui, and the No Action alternative. The EIS will be prepared as a joint federal-state document in compliance with both NEPA and the State of Hawaii Environmental Impact Statements law (Chapter 343, Hawaii Revised Statutes). Biological resources of concern to be addressed in the EIS include the rare Wekiu bug (Nysius wekiucola) on Mauna Kea and the `ua'u (Hawaiian petrel) on Haleakala. Cultural resources of concern include prehistoric or historic districts, archeological sites, shrines, trails, cultural objects and Traditional Cultural Properties with links to cultural and religious practices of Native Hawaiians; possible human remains issues; sacred sites; landscapes; and broader variables of aesthetics. The USAF intends to use the EIS process and documentation to fulfill its National Historic Preservation Act, Section 106 consultation requirements (36 CFR 800.8). The USAF and UH will host public scoping meetings on the Islands of Hawaii, Maui and Oahu in late January or early February to solicit public participation in this environmental analysis. Exact dates, times and location(s) of meetings will be announced through local media. The scoping process will help identify the full range of reasonable alternatives, potential impacts and key issues to be emphasized in the environmental analysis. Recognizing that open communication of issues is a critical element of the EIS process, the USAF and UH intend to ensure that the scoping experience is meaningful and productive for all participants. Accordingly, the project team is putting strong emphasis on an EIS process that fosters beneficial dialogue and relationship building among all stakeholders, particularly those in the native Hawaiian community. Handicap assistance and translation service will be made available; please provide requests in advance to the point of contact listed below. Oral and written comments presented at the public scoping meetings, as well as written comments received by the USAF during this scoping period and throughout the EIS process, will be considered in the preparation of the EIS. To ensure the USAF has sufficient time to consider public input in preparation of the Draft EIS, written comments should be submitted to the address below by 28 Feb 07. Letters and other written or oral comments received may be published in the EIS along with the names of the individuals making the comments. (Personal home addresses and phone numbers will not be published.) As required by law, comments will be addressed in the EIS and made available to the public. Private addresses will only be used to develop a mailing list of those individuals requesting copies of the EIS.
