Docket Number: M–2008–030–C. Petitioner: Park Mine Coal Company, 294 Pine Creek Drive, Orwigsburg, Pennsylvania 17961. Mine: Park Mine, MSHA I.D. No. 36– 09304, located in Schuylkill County, Pennsylvania. Regulation Affected: 30 CFR 77.1200(c) & (k) (Mine map). Modification Request: The petitioner requests a modification of the existing standard to permit the use of crosssections in lieu of contour lines at regular intervals through the area to be mined and to limit the required mapping of mine workings below to those present within 100 feet of the vein(s) being mined. The petitioner states that: (1) Due to the steep pitch encountered in mining anthracite coal veins, contours provide no useful information and their presence would make portions of the map illegible; (2) use of cross-sections in lieu of contour lines has been practiced since the late 1800’s thereby providing critical information relative to the spacing between veins and proximity to other mine workings which fluctuate considerably; (3) the vast majority of current surface anthracite mining involves either the mining of remnant pillars from previous mining/mine operators or the mining of veins of lower quality in proximity to inaccessible and frequently flooded abandoned mine workings which may or may not be mapped; and (4) the mine workings below are usually inactive and abandoned, and therefore, are not subject to changes during the life of the VerDate Aug<31>2005 19:00 Jun 18, 2008 Jkt 214001 mine, but active mines will be mapped. The petitioner asserts that the proposed alternative method will in no way provide less than the same measure of protection than that afforded the miners under the existing standard.

Introduction The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is withdrawing Regulatory Guide 3.42, ‘‘Emergency Planning for Fuel Cycle Facilities and Plants Licensed Under 10 CFR Parts 50 and 70,’’ which was last revised in September 1979. Regulatory Guide 3.42 provides guidance in developing emergency plans for applicants for licenses of fuel cycle facilities under Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR) Part 50, ‘‘Domestic Licensing of Production and Utilization Facilities,’’ as well as for applicants for licenses of special nuclear material under 10 CFR Part 70, ‘‘Domestic Licensing of Special Nuclear Material.’’ The NRC is withdrawing Regulatory Guide 3.42 because no fuel cycle facilities are currently licensed under both 10 CFR Part 50 and 10 CFR Part 70. In addition, no fuel cycle facilities have an active license under 10 CFR Part 50. For fuel cycle and materials facilities licensed under 10 CFR Part 70, Regulatory Guide 3.67, ‘‘Standard Format and Content for Emergency Plans for Fuel Cycle and Materials Facilities,’’ issued January 1992, provides adequate guidance for developing emergency plans. II. Further Information The withdrawal of Regulatory Guide 3.42 does not, in and of itself, alter any prior or existing licensing commitments based on its use. The guidance provided in this regulatory guide no longer provides useful information. Regulatory guides may be withdrawn when their guidance is superseded by congressional action, the methods or techniques described in the regulatory guide no longer describe a preferred approach, or the regulatory guide does not provide useful information. Regulatory guides are available for inspection or downloading through the NRC’s public Web site under ‘‘Regulatory Guides’’ in the NRC’s Electronic Reading Room at http:// www.nrc.gov/reading-rm/doccollections.

ACTION: Notice. mstockstill on PROD1PC66 with NOTICES AGENCY: SUMMARY: In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (Pub. L. 104–13, May 22, 1995), this notice announces that the U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) intends to submit to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) a request for clearance of a revised information collection. OPM sends the INV 10 questionnaire to a random sampling of record and personal sources contacted during background investigations when investigators have performed fieldwork. The INV 10 is used as a quality control instrument designed to ensure the accuracy and integrity of the investigative product, as it inquires of the sources about the investigative procedure employed by the investigator, the investigator’s professionalism, and the information discussed and reported. In addition to the pre-formatted response options, OPM invites the recipients to respond with any other relevant comments or suggestions. A postage-paid envelope is provided with the INV 10. Comments are particularly invited on: • Whether this collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of functions of the Office of Personnel Management and its Center for Federal Investigative Services, which administers its background investigations; • Whether our estimate of the public burden of this collection is accurate, and based on valid assumptions and methodology; • Ways in which we can minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are asked to VerDate Aug<31>2005 19:00 Jun 18, 2008 Jkt 214001 respond, through the use of the appropriate technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology; and, • Whether the reinterview questionnaire addresses all of the questions relevant to ensure the accuracy and integrity of the investigative product. It is estimated that 9,600 INV 10 forms are sent to individual sources annually. Of those, it is estimated that 5,600 individuals will respond. Each form takes approximately 6 minutes to complete. The estimated annual burden is 560 hours. For copies of this proposal, contact Mary Beth Smith-Toomey on (202) 606– 8358, Fax (202) 418–3251 or e-mail to mbtoomey@opm.gov. Please be sure to include a mailing address with your request. DATES: Comments on this proposal should be received within 60 calendar days from the date of this publication.

Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the proposed information collection is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information has practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the RRB’s estimate of the burden of the collection of the information; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) PO 00000 Frm 00052 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 34965 ways to minimize the burden related to the collection of information on respondents, including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. Title and purpose of information collection: Medicare; OMB 3220–0082. Under Section 7(d) of the Railroad Retirement Act (RRA), the Railroad Retirement Board (RRB) administers the Medicare program for persons covered by the railroad retirement system. The RRB uses Form AA–6, Employee Application for Medicare; Form AA–7, Spouse/Divorced Spouse Application For Medicare; and Form AA–8, Widow/ Widower Application for Medicare; to obtain the information needed to determine whether individuals who have not yet filed for benefits under the RRA are qualified for Medicare payments provided under Title XVIII of the Social Security Act. Further, in order for the RRB to determine if a qualified railroad retirement beneficiary who is claiming supplementary medical insurance coverage under Medicare is entitled to a Special Enrollment Period (SEP) and/ or premium surcharge relief because of coverage under an Employer Group Health Plan (EGHP), it needs to obtain information regarding the claimant’s EGHP coverage, if any. The RRB uses Form RL–311–F, Evidence of Coverage Under An Employer Group Health Plan, to obtain the basic information needed by the RRB to establish EGHP coverage for a qualified railroad retirement beneficiary. Completion of the forms is required to obtain a benefit. One response is requested of each respondent. The RRB proposes no changes to Forms AA–6, AA–7 and AA–8. The RRB proposes revision of Form RL–311–F to add a new item which asks if the employee is still working. This information is being added to clarify the employment status of the employee and is needed to determine the Special Enrollment Period. The RRB estimates that 180 Form AA–6’s, 50 Form AA–7’s, 10 Form AA–8’s, and 800 RL–311–F’s are completed annually. The completion time for Forms AA–6, AA–7 and AA–8 is estimated at 8 minutes. The completion time for Form RL–311–F is estimated at 10 minutes. Additional Information or Comments: To request more information or to obtain a copy of the information collection justification, forms, and/or supporting material, please call the RRB Clearance Officer at (312) 751–3363 or send an e-mail request to Charles.Mierzwa@RRB.GOV. Comments regarding the information collection should be addressed to Ronald J. E:\FR\FM\19JNN1.SGM 19JNN1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Introduction

    The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is withdrawing 
Regulatory Guide 3.42, ``Emergency Planning for Fuel Cycle Facilities 
and Plants Licensed Under 10 CFR Parts 50 and 70,'' which was last 
revised in September 1979. Regulatory Guide 3.42 provides guidance in 
developing emergency plans for applicants for licenses of fuel cycle 
facilities under Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR) 
Part 50, ``Domestic Licensing of Production and Utilization 
Facilities,'' as well as for applicants for licenses of special nuclear 
material under 10 CFR Part 70, ``Domestic Licensing of Special Nuclear 
Material.'' The NRC is withdrawing Regulatory Guide 3.42 because no 
fuel cycle facilities are currently licensed under both 10 CFR Part 50 
and 10 CFR Part 70. In addition, no fuel cycle facilities have an 
active license under 10 CFR Part 50. For fuel cycle and materials 
facilities licensed under 10 CFR Part 70, Regulatory Guide 3.67, 
``Standard Format and Content for Emergency Plans for Fuel Cycle and 
Materials Facilities,'' issued January 1992, provides adequate guidance 
for developing emergency plans.

II. Further Information

    The withdrawal of Regulatory Guide 3.42 does not, in and of itself, 
alter any prior or existing licensing commitments based on its use. The 
guidance provided in this regulatory guide no longer provides useful 
information. Regulatory guides may be withdrawn when their guidance is 
superseded by congressional action, the methods or techniques described 
in the regulatory guide no longer describe a preferred approach, or the 
regulatory guide does not provide useful information.
