Approval and Promulgation of Air Quality Implementation Plans; Indiana, 14426-14427 [E8-5288]

Download as PDF rwilkins on PROD1PC63 with PROPOSALS 14426 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 53 / Tuesday, March 18, 2008 / Proposed Rules section 432(b) and this section, the enrolled actuary for the plan must make projections required for the current and succeeding plan years of the current value of the assets of the plan and the present value of all liabilities to participants and beneficiaries under the plan for the current plan year as of the beginning of such year. These projections must be based on reasonable actuarial estimates, assumptions, and methods in accordance with section 431(c)(3) and that offer the actuary’s best estimate of anticipated experience under the plan. Notwithstanding the previous sentence, the actuary is permitted to rely on the plan sponsor’s projection of activity in the industry provided under paragraph (d)(5)(iii) of this section. The projected present value of liabilities as of the beginning of such year must be determined based on the most recent information reported on the most recent of either— (A) The actuarial statement required under section 103(d) of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 that has been filed with respect to the most recent year, or (B) The actuarial valuation for the preceding plan year. (ii) Determinations of future contributions. Any actuarial projection of plan assets shall assume either— (A) Reasonably anticipated employer contributions for the current and succeeding plan years, assuming that the terms of the one or more collective bargaining agreements pursuant to which the plan is maintained for the current plan year continue in effect for succeeding plan years, or (B) That employer contributions for the most recent plan year will continue indefinitely, but only if the enrolled actuary for the plan determines there have been no significant demographic changes that would make such assumption unreasonable. (iii) Projected industry activity. The plan sponsor shall provide any necessary projection of activity in the industry, including future covered employment, to the plan actuary. For this purpose, the plan sponsor must act reasonably and in good faith. (6) Treatment of amortization extensions under section 412(e). For purposes of section 432, if the plan received an extension of any amortization period under section 412(e), the extension is treated the same as an extension under section 431(d). Thus, such an extension is not taken into account in determining whether a plan has or will have an accumulated funding deficiency under paragraph (c)(3) and (c)(4) of this section, but it is taken into account in determining VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:08 Mar 17, 2008 Jkt 214001 whether a plan has or will have an accumulated funding deficiency under paragraph (b)(3) of this section. (e) Notice of endangered or critical status—(1) In general. In any case in which the enrolled actuary for the plan certifies that a multiemployer plan is or will be in endangered or critical status for a plan year, the plan sponsor must, not later than 30 days after the date of the certification, provide notification of the endangered or critical status to the participants and beneficiaries, the bargaining parties, the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation, and the Secretary of Labor. (2) Plans in critical status. If it is certified that a multiemployer plan is or will be in critical status for a plan year, the plan sponsor must include in the notice an explanation of the possibility that adjustable benefits (as defined in section 432(e)(8)) may be reduced, and such reductions may apply to participants and beneficiaries whose benefit commencement date is on or after the date such notice is provided for the first plan year in which the plan is in critical status. If the plan provides benefits that are restricted under section 432(f)(2), the notice must also include an explanation that the plan cannot pay single sums and similar benefits described in section 432(f)(2) that are greater than the monthly amount due under a single life annuity. A plan sponsor that sends the model notice issued by the Secretary of Labor pursuant to section 432(b)(3)(D)(iii) satisfies this requirement. (3) Transition rules—(i) Early notice permitted. If, after August 17, 2006, the enrolled actuary for the plan certifies that a plan is reasonably expected to be in critical status with respect to the first plan year beginning after 2007, then the notice described in this paragraph (e) may be provided before the date the actuary certifies the plan is in critical status for that plan year. The ability to provide early notice does not extend the otherwise applicable deadline for providing the notice under paragraph (e)(1) of this section. (ii) Reformation of prior notice. If notice has been provided prior to the date required under paragraph (e)(1) of this section, but the notice did not include all of the information described in paragraph (e)(2) of this section, then that notice will not satisfy the requirements for notice under section 432(b)(3)(D). Accordingly, the restrictions under section 432(f)(2) will not apply as a result of the issuance of such a notice. However, if prior to the date notice is required to be provided under paragraph (e)(1) of this section additional notice is provided that PO 00000 Frm 00027 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 includes all of the information required under paragraph (e)(2) of this section, then the notice requirements of section 432(b)(3)(D) are satisfied as of the date of that additional notice and the restrictions of section 432(f)(2) will apply beginning on that date. In such a case, the date of the earlier notice will still apply for purposes of section 432(e)(8)(A)(ii) provided that the earlier notice included all of the information required under section 432(b)(3)(D)(ii). (f) Effective applicability date. These regulations apply to plan years ending after [INSERT DATE OF PUBLICATION OF THESE REGULATIONS IN THE FEDERAL REGISTER] but only with respect to plan years that begin on or after January 1, 2008.

SUMMARY: EPA is proposing to approve a request submitted by the Indiana

Implementation Plan (SIP). The submission revises the Indiana 
Administrative Code (IAC) by amending the definition of ``References to 
Code of Federal Regulations,'' to update of the references to the Code 
of Federal Regulations to refer to the 2006 edition. The rule revision 
also makes minor corrections to amend the definition of 
``nonphotochemically reactive hydrocarbons'' or ``negligibly 
photochemically reactive compounds,'' and to amend the definition of 
``volatile organic compound'' or ``VOC.''
    In the final rules section of this Federal Register, EPA is 
approving the SIP revision as a direct final rule without prior 
proposal, because EPA views this as a noncontroversial revision and 
anticipates no adverse comments.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In the Final Rules section of this Federal

further activity is contemplated. If EPA receives adverse comments, the

interested in commenting on this action should do so at this time. 
Please note that if EPA receives adverse comment on an amendment, 
paragraph, or section of this rule, and if that provision may be

provisions of the rule that are not the subject of an adverse comment.
