ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: Background The Milk Income Loss Contract (MILC) Program is administered by the Commodity Credit Corporation (CCC). The MILC Program compensates dairy producers when domestic milk prices fall below a specified level. In general, eligible dairy producers are those who commercially produce and market cow milk in the United States or produce milk in the United States and commercially market the milk outside the United States. The program began on December 1, 2001 and was extended to September 30, 2007. In 2006, applicable to the program extension, the signup and contract periods were both set to end on September 30, 2007. The 2006 amendment lowered the payment calculation percentage from 45 to 34; however, it only extended the payment E:\FR\FM\23AUR1.SGM 23AUR1 ebenthall on PRODPC61 with RULES 48230 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 163 / Thursday, August 23, 2007 / Rules and Regulations calculation of 34 percent through August 31, 2007. It further specified that beginning on September 1, 2007, the payment calculation would be zero percent (0%). Recently, section 9006 of the U.S. Troop Readiness, Veterans’ Care, Katrina Recovery, and Iraq Accountability Appropriations Act, 2007 (2007 Emergency Supplemental) amended the authority for the MILC Program to extend the current payment calculation percentage of 34 percent to September 30, 2007. The MILC Program supports the dairy industry by providing direct countercyclical payments to milk producers when the Boston Milk Marketing Order Class I price for fluid milk falls below $16.94 per hundredweight (cwt). Each fiscal year, eligible dairy operations can receive a monthly payment based on the quantity of milk sold in that month, up to a maximum of 2.4 million pounds per dairy operation for the fiscal year. We determine the per hundredweight payment rate for the applicable month by subtracting the Boston Class I price for that month from the $16.94 baseline, and multiplying the difference by 34 percent. For example: • Boston Class I price announced in February 2006 = $16.63. • $16.94 ¥ $16.63 = $0.31. • $0.31 × 34 percent = $0.1054000. • Therefore, the payment rate for February 2006 was $0.1054 per hundredweight. This rule amends 7 CFR part 1430 to increase the payment rate percentage during the month of September 2007. This makes the calculation percentage consistent for all months in fiscal years 2006 and 2007. MILC payments are based on the commercially-marketed milk production from the MILC production start month selected by the dairy operation, and continue with each subsequent month’s commercial milk production until the earlier of the following: the dairy operation reaches the maximum payment quantity of 2.4 million pounds or the applicable fiscal year ends. If there is a payment rate in effect during the month of September 2007 and the dairy operation has received MILC payments on less than 2.4 million pounds of production for the 2007 fiscal year, payments will continue through September 2007. The dairy operation can change its production start month selection, with some limitations, to September 2007, as specified in 7 CFR 1430.205, Selection of Starting Month. New MILC producers entering into a MILC will be allowed to select, with some limitations, September 2007 as the production start month for their dairy VerDate Aug<31>2005 14:56 Aug 22, 2007 Jkt 211001 operation. Those selections must be made in advance of the announcement of the Boston Class I milk price and establishment of the MILC payment rate for that month. Dairy operations that have exceeded their 2.4 million pound production limitation for the 2007 fiscal year will not receive a MILC payment for September 2007. Notice and Comment Section 1601(c) of the Farm Security and Rural Investment Act of 2002 (Pub. L. 107–171), also referred to as the 2002 Farm Bill, requires that the regulations necessary to implement Title I of the 2002 Act, including the MILC Program, are to be promulgated and administered without regard to the notice and comment provisions of 5 U.S.C. 553 or the Statement of Policy of the Secretary of Agriculture effective July 24, 1971, (36 FR 13804) relating to notices of proposed rulemaking and public participation in rulemaking. This regulatory change of the MILC Program is therefore issued as final. Executive Order 12866 This final rule is not significant according to Executive Order 12866 and has not been reviewed by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB). Regulatory Flexibility Act The Regulatory Flexibility Act is not applicable to this rule because CCC is not required to publish a notice of proposed rulemaking with respect to the subject matter of this rule. Environmental Review In accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act (42 U.S.C. 4321–4347) and the regulations in 40 CFR 1502.4 (Major Federal actions requiring the preparation of Environmental Impact Statements), 7 CFR part 799 (Environmental Quality and Related Environmental Concerns— Compliance with NEPA implementing the regulations of the Council on Environmental Quality), and 40 CFR parts 1500–1508, FSA has determined that this final rule will have no significant impacts upon the human environment. Therefore no environmental assessment or environmental impact statement will be prepared. Executive Order 12988 The final rule has been reviewed under Executive Order 12988.

This action would improve the safety of SVFR aircraft at Everett, Snohomish County Airport (Paine Field), Everett, WA. Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on the proposal to the FAA. No comments were received. Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6005 of FAA Order 7400.9P dated September 1, 2006, and effective September 15, 2006, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR part 71.1. The Class E airspace designations listed in this document will be published subsequently in that Order. The Rule This action amends Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 by establishing Class E airspace at Everett, WA. Additional controlled airspace is necessary to accommodate SVFR aircraft at Everett, Snohomish County Airport (Paine Field), Everett, WA. The FAA has determined that this regulation only involves an established body of technical regulations for which frequent and routine amendments are necessary to keep them operationally current. Therefore, this regulation: (1) Is not a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ under Executive Order 12866; (2) is not a ‘‘significant rule’’ under DOT Regulatory Policies and Procedures (44 FR 11034; February 26, 1979); and (3) does not warrant preparation of a regulatory evaluation as the anticipated impact is so minimal. Since this is a routine matter that will only affect air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is certified that this rule, when promulgated, will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    The Milk Income Loss Contract (MILC) Program is administered by the 
Commodity Credit Corporation (CCC). The MILC Program compensates dairy 
producers when domestic milk prices fall below a specified level. In 
general, eligible dairy producers are those who commercially produce 
and market cow milk in the United States or produce milk in the United 
States and commercially market the milk outside the United States.
    The program began on December 1, 2001 and was extended to September 
30, 2007. In 2006, applicable to the program extension, the signup and 
contract periods were both set to end on September 30, 2007. The 2006 
amendment lowered the payment calculation percentage from 45 to 34; 
however, it only extended the payment

[[Page 48230]]

calculation of 34 percent through August 31, 2007. It further specified 
that beginning on September 1, 2007, the payment calculation would be 
zero percent (0%).
    Recently, section 9006 of the U.S. Troop Readiness, Veterans' Care, 
Katrina Recovery, and Iraq Accountability Appropriations Act, 2007 
(2007 Emergency Supplemental) amended the authority for the MILC 
Program to extend the current payment calculation percentage of 34 
percent to September 30, 2007.
    The MILC Program supports the dairy industry by providing direct 
counter-cyclical payments to milk producers when the Boston Milk 
Marketing Order Class I price for fluid milk falls below $16.94 per 
hundredweight (cwt). Each fiscal year, eligible dairy operations can 
receive a monthly payment based on the quantity of milk sold in that 
month, up to a maximum of 2.4 million pounds per dairy operation for 
the fiscal year. We determine the per hundredweight payment rate for 
the applicable month by subtracting the Boston Class I price for that 
month from the $16.94 baseline, and multiplying the difference by 34 
percent. For example:
     Boston Class I price announced in February 2006 = $16.63.
     $16.94 - $16.63 = $0.31.
     $0.31 x 34 percent = $0.1054000.
     Therefore, the payment rate for February 2006 was $0.1054 
per hundredweight.
    This rule amends 7 CFR part 1430 to increase the payment rate 
percentage during the month of September 2007. This makes the 
calculation percentage consistent for all months in fiscal years 2006 
and 2007.
    MILC payments are based on the commercially-marketed milk 
production from the MILC production start month selected by the dairy 
operation, and continue with each subsequent month's commercial milk 
production until the earlier of the following: the dairy operation 
reaches the maximum payment quantity of 2.4 million pounds or the 
applicable fiscal year ends.
    If there is a payment rate in effect during the month of September 
2007 and the dairy operation has received MILC payments on less than 
2.4 million pounds of production for the 2007 fiscal year, payments 
will continue through September 2007. The dairy operation can change 
its production start month selection, with some limitations, to 
September 2007, as specified in 7 CFR 1430.205, Selection of Starting 
Month. New MILC producers entering into a MILC will be allowed to 
select, with some limitations, September 2007 as the production start 
month for their dairy operation. Those selections must be made in 
advance of the announcement of the Boston Class I milk price and 
establishment of the MILC payment rate for that month. Dairy operations 
that have exceeded their 2.4 million pound production limitation for 
the 2007 fiscal year will not receive a MILC payment for September 
2007.

Notice and Comment

    Section 1601(c) of the Farm Security and Rural Investment Act of 
2002 (Pub. L. 107-171), also referred to as the 2002 Farm Bill, 
requires that the regulations necessary to implement Title I of the 
2002 Act, including the MILC Program, are to be promulgated and 
administered without regard to the notice and comment provisions of 5 
U.S.C. 553 or the Statement of Policy of the Secretary of Agriculture 
effective July 24, 1971, (36 FR 13804) relating to notices of proposed 
rulemaking and public participation in rulemaking. This regulatory 
change of the MILC Program is therefore issued as final.

Executive Order 12866

    This final rule is not significant according to Executive Order 
12866 and has not been reviewed by the Office of Management and Budget 
(OMB).

Regulatory Flexibility Act

    The Regulatory Flexibility Act is not applicable to this rule 
because CCC is not required to publish a notice of proposed rulemaking 
with respect to the subject matter of this rule.

Environmental Review

    In accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act (42 U.S.C. 
4321-4347) and the regulations in 40 CFR 1502.4 (Major Federal actions 
requiring the preparation of Environmental Impact Statements), 7 CFR 
part 799 (Environmental Quality and Related Environmental Concerns--
Compliance with NEPA implementing the regulations of the Council on 
Environmental Quality), and 40 CFR parts 1500-1508, FSA has determined 
that this final rule will have no significant impacts upon the human 
environment. Therefore no environmental assessment or environmental 
impact statement will be prepared.

Executive Order 12988

    The final rule has been reviewed under Executive Order 12988. This 
rule preempts State laws that are inconsistent with its provisions. 
Before any judicial action may be brought regarding this rule, all 
administrative remedies must be exhausted.

Executive Order 12372

    This program is not subject to Executive Order 12372, which 
requires consultation with State and local officials. See the notice 
related to 7 CFR part 3015, subpart V, published in the Federal 
Register on June 24, 1983 (48 FR 29115).

Unfunded Mandates

    Title II of the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (UMRA) does 
not apply to this rule because CCC is not required to publish a notice 
of proposed rulemaking about the subject matter of this rule. Further, 
this rule imposes no unfunded mandates, as define in UMRA, on any 
local, state, or tribal government or the private sector.

Paperwork Reduction Act

    Section 1601(c) of the 2002 Farm Bill provides that the 
promulgation of regulations and the administration of Title I of the 
2002 Farm Bill, including the MILC Program, be made without regard to 
chapter 5 of title 44 of the United States Code (the Paperwork 
Reduction Act). Accordingly, these regulations, the forms, and other 
information collection activities needed to administer the program 
authorized by these regulations are not subject to review by the Office 
of Management and Budget under the Paperwork Reduction Act.

E-Government Act Compliance

    FSA is committed to complying with the E-Government Act, to promote 
the use of the Internet and other information technologies to provide 
increased opportunities for citizen access to Government information 
and services, and for other purposes.
