SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Pursuant to its authorities in Section 7 of the Rivers and Harbors Act of 1917 (40 Stat. 266; 33 U.S.C. 1) and Chapter XIX of the Army Appropriations Act of 1919 (40 Stat. 892; 33 U.S.C. 3), the Corps proposes to amend 33 CFR 334.430 by adding a danger zone along the Neuse River as described below. The regulations governing the restricted area are not proposed to be changed. Procedural Requirements Defense Department and the provisions of Executive Order 12866 do not apply. Authority: 40 Stat. 266 (33 U.S.C. 1) and 40 Stat. 892 (33 U.S.C. 3). b. Review Under the Regulatory Flexibility Act This proposed rule has been reviewed under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (Pub. L. 96–354) which requires the preparation of a regulatory flexibility analysis for any regulation that will have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities (i.e., small businesses and small governments). Unless information is obtained to the contrary during the public notice comment period, the Corps expects that the establishment of this danger zone would have practically no economic impact on the public, result in no anticipated navigational hazard, or interfere with existing waterway traffic. This proposed rule, if adopted, will have no significant economic impact on small entities. 2. Section 334.430 is revised to read as follows: c. Review Under the National Environmental Policy Act Due to the administrative nature of this action and because there is no intended change in the use of the area, the Corps expects that this regulation, if adopted, will not have a significant impact to the quality of the human environment and, therefore, preparation of an environmental impact statement will not be required.

The environmental assessment may be reviewed at the District office listed at the end of FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT, above. d. Unfunded Mandates Act This proposed rule does not impose an enforceable duty on the private sector and, therefore, it is not a Federal private sector mandate and it is not subject to the requirements of either Section 202 or Section 205 of the Unfunded Mandates Act.

AGENCY: cprice-sewell on PRODPC61 with PROPOSALS ACTION: SUMMARY: The Postal ServiceTM is proposing to revise the mailing standards for medical waste so that medical professionals can more easily use the mail to ship waste to disposal sites. For over 15 years we have safely permitted approved vendors to use the mail for return of sharps and other regulated medical waste for disposal. Under our current standards, mailback medical waste containers are most often used by individuals who selfinject medications to control diseases such as diabetes and arthritis. By increasing the maximum allowable weight of medical waste mail-back containers and at the same time requiring additional packaging safeguards, we intend to provide small medical offices the option of using the mail for sending medical waste for disposal. This proposal would allow medical professionals a safe, easy, and cost-effective means of disposing of sharps and other regulated medical waste. DATES: We must receive your comments on or before May 25, 2007. ADDRESSES: Mail or deliver written comments to the Manager, Mailing Standards, Postal Service, 475 L’Enfant Plaza SW., Room 3436, Washington, DC 20260–3436. You may inspect and photocopy all written comments at the Postal Service Headquarters Library, 475 L’Enfant Plaza SW., 11th Floor N, Washington, DC between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m., Monday through Friday. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Bert Olsen, 202–268–7276. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This proposal would increase the use of the mail for shipping medical waste while improving packaging requirements so that these items continue to be safe VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:21 Apr 24, 2007 Jkt 211001 while transported in the mail. Currently, mailing standards require that primary sharps receptacles not exceed 3 gallons and that primary receptacles for other regulated medical waste not exceed 5 gallons. This proposal would allow for a single larger primary receptacle that could accommodate several pre-primary sharps receptacles (sharps receptacles normally used in doctors’ offices) as well as several tie-closed bags of other regulated medical waste. This change would add additional receptacles (preprimary) to the currently required triplepackaging system and therefore would increase protection of the contents. The pre-primary receptacles may be different in size and design. The primary receptacle that holds the preprimary receptacles and the bags of other regulated medical waste must be capable of passing all current package tests. The new standards would set the total mailpiece weight limit to 35 pounds for packages approved as ‘‘Medical Professional Packaging.’’ All other medical waste mailpieces would be required to conform to the current 25-pound weight limit. Although we are exempt from the notice and comment requirements of the Administrative Procedure Act [5 U.S.C. of 553(b), (c)] regarding proposed rulemaking by 39 U.S.C. 410(a), we invite public comment on the following proposed revisions to Mailing Standards of the United States Postal Service, Domestic Mail Manual (DMM), incorporated by reference in the Code of Federal Regulations. See 39 CFR 111.1. List of Subjects in 39 CFR Part 111 Administrative practice and procedure, Postal Service. Accordingly, 39 CFR part 111 is proposed to be amended as follows: PART 111—[AMENDED] 1. The authority citation for 39 CFR part 111 continues to read as follows: Authority: 5 U.S.C. 552(a); 39 U.S.C. 101, 401, 403, 404, 414, 416, 3001–3011, 3201– 3219, 3403–3406, 3621, 3626, 5001; chapter 36 of Title 39: Pub.

United States Marine Corps Restricted Area and Danger Zone, Neuse 
River and Tributaries, Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point, NC

AGENCY: United States Army Corps of Engineers, DoD.

ACTION: Notice of proposed rulemaking and request for comments.

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

SUMMARY: The Corps of Engineers is proposing to amend its regulations 
to designate an existing rifle range fan as a danger zone. The military 
exercise area is located within the Rifle Range of Marine Corps Air 
Station Cherry Point, North Carolina, along the Neuse River. The danger 
zone will only be activated by the Marine Corps Air Station Cherry 
Point during range operational hours. The Marine Corps will advise 
residents in the vicinity of the range fan thus ensuring their safety 
by alerting them to temporary potential hazardous conditions which may 
exist as a result of small arms exercises. There will be no change in 
the use of the existing exercise area. The area, however, needs to be 
marked on navigation charts to insure security and safety for the 
public. Entry points into the danger zone will be prominently marked 
with signage indicating the boundary of the danger zone. The placement 
of aids to navigation and regulatory markers will be installed in 
accordance with the requirements of the United States Coast Guard. If 
the proposed signage exceeds nationwide permit and/or regional general 
permit conditions, the Commander, United States Marine Corps, Marine 
Corps Air Station Cherry Point, North Carolina will seek additional 
Department of the Army authorizations.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mr. David Olson, Headquarters, 
Operations and Regulatory Community of Practice, Washington, DC at 
(202) 761-4922, Mr. Scott Jones, Corps of Engineers, Wilmington 
District, Regulatory Branch, at (252) 975-1616, or Ms. Tracey Wheeler, 
Corps of Engineers, Wilmington District, Regulatory Branch, at (252) 
975-1616.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Pursuant to its authorities in Section 7 of 
the Rivers and Harbors Act of 1917 (40 Stat. 266; 33 U.S.C. 1) and 
Chapter XIX of the Army Appropriations Act of 1919 (40 Stat. 892; 33 
U.S.C. 3), the Corps proposes to amend 33 CFR 334.430 by adding a 
danger zone along the Neuse River as described below. The regulations 
governing the restricted area are not proposed to be changed.

Procedural Requirements

a. Review Under Executive Order 12866

    This proposed rule is issued with respect to a military function of 
the Defense Department and the provisions of Executive Order 12866 do 
not apply.

b. Review Under the Regulatory Flexibility Act

    This proposed rule has been reviewed under the Regulatory 
Flexibility Act (Pub. L. 96-354) which requires the preparation of a 
regulatory flexibility analysis for any regulation that will have a 
significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities 
(i.e., small businesses and small governments). Unless information is 
obtained to the contrary during the public notice comment period, the 
Corps expects that the establishment of this danger zone would have 
practically no economic impact on the public, result in no anticipated 
navigational hazard, or interfere with existing waterway traffic. This 
proposed rule, if adopted, will have no significant economic impact on 
small entities.

c. Review Under the National Environmental Policy Act

    Due to the administrative nature of this action and because there 
is no intended change in the use of the area, the Corps expects that 
this regulation, if adopted, will not have a significant impact to the 
quality of the human environment and, therefore, preparation of an 
environmental impact statement will not be required. An environmental 
assessment will be prepared after the public notice period is closed 
and all comments have been received and considered. The environmental 
assessment may be reviewed at the District office listed at the end of 
FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT, above.

d. Unfunded Mandates Act

    This proposed rule does not impose an enforceable duty on the 
private sector and, therefore, it is not a Federal private sector 
mandate and it is not subject to the requirements of either Section 202 
or Section 205 of the Unfunded Mandates Act. We have also found under 
Section 203 of the Act that small governments will not be significantly 
and uniquely affected by this rulemaking.
