Notice of Intent To Prepare a Draft Environmental Impact Statement/ Environmental Impact Report (DEIS/DEIR) for a Proposed Marine Terminal Development at Pier S and Back Channel Navigational Safety Improvements in the Port of Long Beach, Los Angeles County, CA
Document Number: E7-633
Type: Notice
Date: 2007-01-26
Agency: Department of Defense, Department of the Army, Corps of Engineers, Engineers Corps, Army Department
The Port of Long Beach (Port) is proposing to develop the Pier S Marine Terminal and Back Channel Navigational Safety Improvements Project (Proposed Action). The development of Pier S and Back Channel improvements would result in an approximately 160-acre marine container terminal, and would include the following elements: property acquisition; dredging, wharf construction, other waterside improvements, and container cranes; container yard and associated structures; terminal buildings and other structures; truck gates, associated structures, and roadwork; intermodal rail yard, structures, and dual rail lead; and utility and oil facility relocation. The primary Federal concern is the dredging and discharging of materials within waters of the U.S. and potential impacts on the human environment. Under Section 404 of the Clean Water Act, the Corps is authorized to approve discharges of dredged or fill material into waters of the U.S. Under Section 10 of the Rivers and Harbors Act, the Corps may authorize activities that could affect navigable waters. Pursuant to Section 102(2)(c) of the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) as implemented by the Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ), 40 CFR 1500-1508, the Corps is preparing an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) to evaluate the potential effects of the Proposed Action on the environment. The Corps may ultimately make a determination to permit or deny the Proposed Action, or permit or deny alternatives to the Proposed Action. Pursuant to the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), the Port will serve as Lead Agency for the preparation of an Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for its consideration of development approvals within its jurisdiction. The Corps and the Port have agreed to jointly prepare a DEIS/DEIR in order to optimize efficiency and avoid duplication. The DEIS/DEIR is intended to be sufficient in scope to address federal, state, and local requirements and environmental issues concerning the proposed activities and permit approvals.

Proposed Collection; Comment Request; Phase II of a Prospective Cohort Study of Diet and Cancer in Members of the American Association of Retired Persons
Document Number: E7-1282
Type: Notice
Date: 2007-01-26
Agency: Department of Health and Human Services, National Institutes of Health
In compliance with the requirement of Section 3506(c)(2)(A) of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, for opportunity for public comment on proposed data collection projects, the National Cancer Institute (NCI), the National Institutes of Health (NIH) will publish periodic summaries of proposed projects to be submitted to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for review and approval. Proposed Collection: Title: Phase II of A Prospective Cohort Study of Diet and Cancer in Members of the American Association of Retired Persons. Type of Information Collection Request: New. Need and Use of Information Collection: The specific objectives of the current study are to: (1) Examine prospectively the relation between diet and major cancers (especially those of the breast, colorectal, prostate, and non- Hodgkin's lymphoma; (2) in a series of pilot studies, evaluate the quality and completeness of dietary data collected from automated web- based dietary assessment instruments, individually and collectively, in a large cohort, and; (3) in a calibration substudy, compare energy expenditure (measured by doubly labeled water) and protein and potassium intakes (measured by 24-hour urinary nitrogen and potassium excretion) with intakes of energy, protein, and potassium as reported on web-based, automated 24-Hour Dietary Record (24HR), an automated Diet History Questionnaire (DHQ), and an automated DHQ adjusted by automated 7-Day Food Lists (7DFLs) to assess measurement error structure in the instruments. The proposed study will build on the existing Prospective Study of Diet and Cancer in members of the American Association of Retired Persons by updating exposure information in the existing cohort and allowing for continued tracking and follow-up; (2) expanding the cohort by recruiting additional participants and surveying their diet and other exposures. In addition to the 566,403 persons from the original cohort, a new cohort of 2.5 million 50-59 year olds from the same states as the original AARP cohort, and 4 million 50-69 year olds from 8 new states will be contacted as part of the recruitment and data collection effort. Phase II will apply the latest technology to use web-based data collection instruments for economical and efficient assessment of dietary exposures of study participants. This uniquely designed cohort study has a capacity greater than that of any previous study for evaluating connections between dietary factors and major cancers. Frequency of Response: The frequency of response is dependent on the instrument and the portion of the study that the respondent is participating in (pilot, main study, and/or calibration substudy), as described in the table below. Affected Public: Individuals. Type of Respondents: U.S. adults (person ages 50-85). The annual reporting burden is as follows:

Labor Organization Annual Financial Reports, Forms LM-2, LM-3, LM-4.
Document Number: E7-1275
Type: Rule
Date: 2007-01-26
Agency: Department of Labor, Office of Labor-Management Standards, Labor-Management Standards Office
On December 22, 2002, the Department of Labor (Department) proposed revisions to Forms LM-2, LM-3, and LM-4, which are used by labor organizations to file annual financial reports required under Title II of the Labor-Management Reporting and Disclosure Act of 1959 (LMRDA or Act), 29 U.S.C. 401 et seq., with the Employment Standards Administration's Office of Labor-Management Standards (OLMS). A portion of the proposed rule stated the Department's intent to revise its interpretation of an aspect of the definition of ``labor organization * * * deemed to be engaged in an industry affecting commerce'' under the LMRDA. After receiving and considering comments, the Department published its final rule on October 9, 2003. The interpretation in the final rule stated that intermediate bodies that are subordinate to a national or international labor organization that includes a labor organization will be covered by the LMRDA, even if the intermediate body's constituents are solely public sector local labor unions not covered by the Act. This interpretation of the LMRDA was challenged in federal district court by labor unions affected by the interpretation, and the court granted summary judgment in favor of the labor unions. Alabama Education Ass'n v. Chao, 2005 WL 736535 (D.D.C. Mar 31, 2005). On appeal, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit reversed the grant of summary judgment. Alabama Education Ass'n v. Chao, 455 F.3d 386 (D.C. Cir. 2006). The court of appeals held that the Department's interpretation was reviewable under deference principles established under Chevron U.S.A., Inc. v. Natural Resources Defense Council, Inc., 467 U.S. 837 (1984), and that the statutory definition of ``labor organization * * * deemed to be engaged in an industry affecting commerce'' is ambiguous and subject to more than one permissible interpretation, including the Department's interpretation. 455 F.3d at 393, 396. The court also concluded, however, that the Department had failed to provide a ``reasoned analysis supporting its change of position'' and remanded the rule to the Department to provide such analysis. Id. at 396-397. The Department issues this Policy Statement in response to the court's remand order.

FSIS Jurisdiction Over Flavor Products Containing Meat or Poultry
Document Number: E7-1264
Type: Notice
Date: 2007-01-26
Agency: Department of Agriculture, Food Safety and Inspection Service
This notice clarifies that flavor products, e.g., flavor bases, and blended and reaction/process flavors, with greater than 3 percent raw meat or poultry, or 2 percent or more cooked meat or poultry, in their formulation are amenable to Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) jurisdiction. Recent findings show that some manufacturers of flavor products formulated with significant levels of meat, meat byproducts, poultry, and poultry byproducts (e.g., 30-70 percent) are not aware that such products are under FSIS jurisdiction. These manufacturers need to take necessary steps to come under inspection.

Criticality Control of Fuel Within Dry Storage Casks or Transportation Packages in a Spent Fuel Pool; Confirmation of Effective Date
Document Number: E7-1260
Type: Rule
Date: 2007-01-26
Agency: Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Agencies and Commissions
The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is confirming the effective date of January 30, 2007, for the direct final rule that was published in the Federal Register on November 16, 2006 (71 FR 66648). This direct final rule amended the NRC's regulations that govern domestic licensing of production and utilization facilities so that the requirements governing criticality control for spent fuel pool storage racks do not apply to the fuel within a spent fuel transportation package or storage cask when a package or cask is in a spent fuel pool. These packages and casks are subject to separate criticality control requirements. This action is necessary to avoid applying two different sets of criticality control requirements to fuel within a package or cask in a spent fuel pool.
