General information concerning the CASAC or the EPA SAB can be found on the EPA Web Site at: http://www.epa.gov/sab. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background: The CASAC, which is comprised of seven members appointed by the EPA Administrator, was established under section 109(d)(2) of the Clean Air Act (CAA or Act) (42 U.S.C. 7409) as an independent scientific advisory committee. The CASAC provides advice, information and recommendations on the scientific and technical aspects of issues related to air quality criteria and NAAQS under sections 108 and 109 of the Act. The CASAC is chartered under the Federal Advisory Committee Act (FACA), as amended, 5 U.S.C., App. The CASAC Review Panel consists of the seven members of the chartered CASAC supplemented by subject-matter-experts. The CASAC Panel provides advice and recommendations to EPA concerning particulate matter in ambient air relevant to the Agency’s review of the primary (human health-based) and secondary (welfare-based) PM NAAQS. The Panel complies with the provisions of FACA and all appropriate SAB Staff Office procedural policies. Section 109(d)(1) of the CAA requires that the Agency periodically review and revise, as appropriate, the air quality criteria and the NAAQS for the six ‘‘criteria’’ air pollutants, including airborne PM. EPA’s National Center for Environmental Assessment in Research Triangle Park, NC (NCEA–RTP), a component of the Agency’s Office of Research and Development (ORD), and the Agency’s Office of Air Quality Planning and Standards (OAQPS), within the Office of Air and Radiation (OAR), have jointly developed the Draft Integrated Plan for Review of the PM NAAQS, as the first step in EPA’s fiveyear, statutorily-mandated review cycle of airborne particulate matter. As stated in the draft integrated review plan, the purpose of this document is to communicate the plan for reviewing the air quality criteria for PM associated with human health and welfare effects and the primary and secondary standards for PM. On March 8, 2007, the SAB Staff Office announced the formation of the CASAC PM Review Panel in the Federal Register (72 FR 10527) and sought public nominations for nationallyrecognized experts in various scientific and technical disciplines to supplement the expertise of the statutory CASAC. The SAB Staff Director announced the establishment of this CASAC Panel on VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:54 Nov 07, 2007 Jkt 214001 October 23, 2007. The purpose of this public teleconference meeting, which is the first meeting of the new CASAC PM Review Panel, is to conduct a consultation on the Agency’s draft integrated plans for the review of the NAAQS for particulate matter. The SAB Staff Office has developed the consultation as a mechanism to provide early input and advice to EPA on technical issues that should be considered in the development of regulations, guidelines, or technical guidance before the Agency has taken a position. Availability of Meeting Materials: The Draft Integrated Plan for Review of the PM NAAQS is posted on the Agency’s Technology Transfer Network (TTN) Web site at: http://www.epa.gov/ttn/ naaqs/standards/pm/s_pm_cr_pd.html, in the ‘‘Documents from Current Review’’ section under ‘‘Planning Documents’’ on this Web page. A copy of the draft agenda and other materials for this CASAC teleconference will be posted on the SAB Web site at: http:// www.epa.gov/sab/panels/ casac_pm_review_panel_2007-.html prior to the meeting. Procedures for Providing Public Input: Interested members of the public may submit relevant written or oral information for the CASAC PM Review Panel to consider during the advisory process. Oral Statements: In general, individuals or groups requesting an oral presentation at a public teleconference will be limited to three minutes per speaker, with no more than a total of 30 minutes for all speakers. Interested parties should contact Mr. Butterfield, DFO, in writing (preferably via e-mail), by November 26, 2007, at the contact information noted above, to be placed on the list of public speakers for this meeting. Written Statements: Written statements should be received in the SAB Staff Office by November 26, 2007, so that the information may be made available to the CASAC Panel for its consideration prior to this teleconference. Written statements should be supplied to the DFO in the following formats: one hard copy with original signature (optional), and one electronic copy via e-mail (acceptable file format: Adobe Acrobat PDF, MS Word, WordPerfect, MS PowerPoint, or Rich Text files in IBM–PC/Windows 98/ 2000/XP format).

Provisions of the Second Order require station identification requirements for Digital Audio Broadcasting (DAB) stations to facilitate public participation in the regulatory process. Both AM and FM stations with DAB operations will be required to make station identification announcements at the beginning and end of each time of operation, as well as hourly, for each programming stream. 47 CFR 73.1201(a) requires television broadcast licensees to make broadcast station identification announcements at the beginning and ending of each time of operation, and hourly, as close to the hour as feasible, at a natural break in program offerings. Television and Class A television broadcast stations may make these announcements visually or aurally. 47 CFR 73.1201(b)(1) requires that official station identification shall consist of the station’s call letters immediately followed by the community or communities specified in its license as the station’s location; Provided that the name of the licensee, the station’s frequency, the station’s channel number, as stated on the station’s license, and/or the station’s network affiliation may be inserted between the call letters and station location. DTV stations, or DAB Stations, choosing to include the station’s channel number in the station identification must use the station’s major channel number and may distinguish multicast program streams. For example, a DTV station with major channel number 26 may use 26.1 to identify an HDTV program service and 26.2 to identify an SDTV program service. A radio station operating in DAB hybrid mode or extended hybrid mode shall identify its digital signal, including any free multicast audio programming streams, in a manner that appropriately alerts its audience to the fact that it is listening to a digital audio broadcast. No other insertion between the station’s call letters and the community or communities specified in its license is permissible. E:\FR\FM\08NON1.SGM 08NON1
