Whenever the Board has issued an order precluding a person from further acting as counsel or Representative in a proceeding, the Board will, within a reasonable time, submit to the Secretary of Labor or his or her designee a report of the facts and circumstances surrounding the issuance of such order. The Board will recommend what action the Secretary of Labor should take in regard to the appearance of such person as counsel or Representative in other proceedings before the Board. Before any action is taken debarring a person as counsel or Representative from other proceedings, he or she will be furnished notice and the opportunity to be heard on the matter. (e) Fees for Attorney, Representative, or Other Services. No claim for a fee for legal or other service in connection with a proceeding before the Board is valid unless approved by the Board. Under 18 U.S.C. 292, collecting a fee without the approval of the Board may constitute a misdemeanor, subject to fine or imprisonment for up to a year or both. No contract for a stipulated fee or on a contingent fee basis will be approved by the Board. No fee for service will be approved except upon written application to the Clerk, supported by a statement of the extent and nature of the necessary work performed before the Board on behalf of the Appellant. The fee application will be served by the Clerk on the Appellant and a time set in which a response may be filed. Except where such fee is de minimis, the fee request will be evaluated with consideration of the following factors: (1) Usefulness of the Representative’s services; (2) The nature and complexity of the appeal; (3) The capacity in which the Representative has appeared; (4) The actual time spent in connection with the Board appeal; and (5) Customary local charges for similar services.

ACTION: Proposed rule. AGENCY: SUMMARY: EPA proposes to approve a State Implementation Plan (SIP) to revise the sulfur dioxide (SO2) emissions rates and averaging times for Kansas City Power & Light’s Hawthorn Plant and Montrose Station in Missouri rule, Restriction of Emission of Sulfur Compounds. Previous changes to this rule were disapproved in 2006 because EPA was concerned that the averaging times for the rates at these units had been dramatically increased from a 3hour average to an annual average and that the revised averaging times were not demonstrated by the state to be protective of the short-term (3- and 24hour) sulfur dioxide (SO2) National Ambient Air Quality Standard (NAAQS). EPA believes that the recent changes, which EPA is now proposing to approve, have been shown by Missouri to be protective of the shortterm SO2 NAAQS. This revision will ensure consistency between the state and the federally-approved rules. DATES: Comments on this proposed action must be received in writing by July 21, 2008.

The BFEs and modified BFEs are a part of the floodplain management measures that the community is required either to adopt or show evidence of having in effect in order to qualify or remain qualified for participation in the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). In addition, these elevations, once finalized, will be used by insurance agents, and others to calculate appropriate flood insurance premium rates for new buildings and the contents in those buildings.

As flood elevation determinations are not within the scope of the Regulatory Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C. 601–612, a regulatory flexibility analysis is not required.

Approval and Promulgation of Implementation Plans; State of 
Missouri

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Proposed rule.

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

SUMMARY: EPA proposes to approve a State Implementation Plan (SIP) to 
revise the sulfur dioxide (SO2) emissions rates and 
averaging times for Kansas City Power & Light's Hawthorn Plant and 
Montrose Station in Missouri rule, Restriction of Emission of Sulfur 
Compounds. Previous changes to this rule were disapproved in 2006 
because EPA was concerned that the averaging times for the rates at 
these units had been dramatically increased from a 3-hour average to an 
annual average and that the revised averaging times were not 
demonstrated by the state to be protective of the short-term (3- and 
24-hour) sulfur dioxide (SO2) National Ambient Air Quality 
Standard (NAAQS). EPA believes that the recent changes, which EPA is 
now proposing to approve, have been shown by Missouri to be protective 
of the short-term SO2 NAAQS. This revision will ensure 
consistency between the state and the federally-approved rules.

DATES: Comments on this proposed action must be received in writing by 
July 21, 2008.

ADDRESSES: Submit your comments, identified by Docket ID No. EPA-R07-

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In the final rules section of the Federal 
Register, EPA is approving the state's SIP revision as a direct final 
rule without prior proposal because the Agency views this as a 
noncontroversial revision amendment and anticipates no relevant adverse 
comments to this action. A detailed rationale for the approval is set

adverse comments, the direct final rule will be withdrawn and all 
public comments received will be addressed in a subsequent final rule 
based on this proposed action. EPA will not institute a second comment 
period on this action. Any parties interested in commenting on this 
action should do so at this time. Please note that if EPA receives 
adverse comment on part of this rule and if that part can be severed 
from the remainder of the rule, EPA may adopt as final those parts of 
the rule that are not the subject of an adverse comment. For additional
