Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 132 / Wednesday, July 9, 2008 / Notices we are planning to host a series of informational meetings and opportunities for question and answer (Q&A) sessions via teleconference calls. These conference calls will enable us to offer two-hour streamlined informational sessions to all States prior to our solicitation, and will allow us to answer any questions that the States have prior to the competition, in keeping with Federal requirements that we afford assistance fairly in a competition process. Specific conference call logistics and grant resource information will be provided to each Region as well as being posted on our Web site at https://www.epa.gov/ innovation/stategrants. Pre-competition briefing summaries and all other resource materials will be posted on the Web site at https://www.epa.gov/ innovation/stategrants. Through this effort, we are hoping to encourage individual States, State-led teams, or other eligible applicants (e.g., regional, county, or municipal agencies with delegated authority for federal environmental permitting programs) to submit well-developed pre-proposals that effectively describe in particular how their project will achieve measurable environmental results.

Does this Action Apply to Me? This action is directed to the public in general, and may be of interest to a wide range of stakeholders including environmental, human health, farm worker, and agricultural advocates; the chemical industry; pesticide users; and members of the public interested in the sale, distribution, or use of pesticides. Since others also may be interested, the Agency has not attempted to describe all the specific entities that may be affected by this action. If you have any questions regarding the applicability of this action to a particular entity, consult the person listed under FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT. B. What Should I Consider as I Prepare My Comments for EPA? 1. Submitting CBI. Do not submit this information to EPA through regulations.gov or e-mail. Clearly mark the part or all of the information that you claim to be CBI. For CBI information in a disk or CD-ROM that you mail to EPA, mark the outside of the disk or CD-ROM as CBI and then identify electronically within the disk or CD-ROM the specific information that is claimed as CBI. In addition to one complete version of the comment that includes information claimed as CBI, a copy of the comment that does not contain the information claimed as CBI must be submitted for inclusion in the public docket. Information so marked will not be disclosed except in accordance with procedures set forth in 40 CFR part 2. 2. Tips for preparing your comments. When submitting comments, remember to: i. Identify the document by docket ID number and other identifying information (subject heading, Federal Register date and page number). ii. Follow directions. The Agency may ask you to respond to specific questions or organize comments by referencing a Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) part or section number. iii. Explain why you agree or disagree; suggest alternatives and substitute language for your requested changes. iv. Describe any assumptions and provide any technical information and/ or data that you used. v. If you estimate potential costs or burdens, explain how you arrived at your estimate in sufficient detail to allow for it to be reproduced. vi. Provide specific examples to illustrate your concerns and suggest alternatives. vii. Explain your views as clearly as possible, avoiding the use of profanity or personal threats. viii. Make sure to submit your comments by the comment period deadline identified. II. Background A. What Action is the Agency Taking? This notice opens a 60–day public comment period on the subject proposed registration review decisions. The Agency is proposing registration review decisions for the pesticide cases shown in the following Table. TABLE 1.—REGISTRATION REVIEW DOCKETS: PROPOSED FINAL DECISIONS Registration Review Case Name and Number Pesticide Docket ID Number Regulatory Contact name, Phone Number, E-mail Address EPA–HQ–OPP–2006–0356 Stephen Morrill (703) 308–8319 morrill.stephen@epa.gov Trichoderma species; Case 6050 jlentini on PROD1PC65 with NOTICES Linalool; Case 6058 EPA–HQ–OPP–2006–0245 Shanaz Bacchus (703) 308–8097 bacchus.shanaz@epa.gov The dockets for registration review of these pesticide cases include earlier documents related to the registration review of the subject cases. For example, the review opened with the posting of a Summary Document, containing a Preliminary Work Plan (PWP), for public comment. A Final Work Plan (FWP) was posted to the docket following public comment on the initial docket. The documents in the initial docket described the Agency’s rationales for not conducting new risk assessments for the registration review of the Trichoderma species. A new ‘‘down the drain’’ exposure risk assessment was considered for linalool in response to the comments received to the initial docket. A preliminary assessment indicated that a full assessment would not provide useful information, since the annual usage of linalool is so low. Thus the Agency concluded the there is no incremental risk as a result of exposure when linalool is used as labeled. These VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:15 Jul 08, 2008 Jkt 214001 proposed registration review decisions now included in the dockets continue to be supported by those rationales included in documents in the initial dockets. Following public comment, the Agency will issue a final registration review decision for each case. The registration review program is being conducted under congressionally mandated time frames, and EPA recognizes the need both to make timely decisions and to involve the public. Section 3(g) of the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA) as amended in 1996 required EPA to establish by regulation procedures for reviewing pesticide registrations, originally with a goal of reviewing each pesticide’s registration every 15 years to ensure that a pesticide continues to meet the FIFRA standard for registration. The Agency’s final rule to implement this program was issued in August 2006 and became effective in October 2006 and appears at 40 CFR 155.40 The Pesticide Registration PO 00000 Frm 00025 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Improvement Act of 2003 (PRIA) was amended and extended in September 2007. FIFRA as amended by PRIA in 2007 requires EPA to complete registration review decisions by October 1, 2022 for all pesticides registered as of October 1, 2007. The registration review final rule provides for a minimum 60– day public comment period for all proposed registration review decisions. This comment period is intended to provide an opportunity for public input and a mechanism for initiating any necessary amendments to the proposed decision(s). All comments should be submitted using the methods in ADDRESSES, and must be received by EPA on or before the closing date. These comments will become part of the Agency Dockets for Trichoderma species and linalool. Comments received after the close of the comment period will be marked ‘‘late.’’ EPA is not required to consider these late comments. The Agency will carefully consider all comments received by the E:\FR\FM\09JYN1.SGM 09JYN1 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 132 / Wednesday, July 9, 2008 / Notices closing date and will provide a Response to Comments Memorandum in the Dockets and www.regulations.gov. The final registration review decisions will explain the effect that any comments have had on the decisions. Background on the registration review program is provided at: https:// www.epa.gov/oppsrrd1/ registration_review/. Quick links to earlier documents related to the registration review of this pesticide are provided at: https://www.epa.gov/ oppsrrd1/registration_review/ reg_review_status.htm/. Additional information about biopesticides can be obtained by an alphabetical search of the Biopesticide Active Ingredient Fact Sheets on https://www.epa.gov/ oppbppd1/biopesticides/ingredients/ index.htm B. What is the Agency’s Authority for Taking this Action? FIFRA Section 3(g) and 40 CFR 155.40 provide authority for this action.

Andersen, Director, Biopesticides and Pollution Prevention Division, Office of Pesticide Programs [FR Doc. E8–15442 Filed 7–8–08; 8:45 a.m.] BILLING CODE 6560–50–S FEDERAL COMMUNICATIONS COMMISSION Notice of Public Information Collection(s) Approved by the Office of Management and Budget jlentini on PROD1PC65 with NOTICES July 2, 2008. SUMMARY: The Federal Communications Commission has received Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approval for the following public information collection(s) pursuant to the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501–3520). An agency may not conduct or sponsor a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number, and no person is required to respond to a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. Comments concerning the accuracy of the burden estimate(s) and any suggestions for reducing the burden should be directed to the person listed in the FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT section below. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: For additional information contact Cathy VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:15 Jul 08, 2008 Jkt 214001 Williams, Performance and Evaluation Records Management Division, Office of the Managing Director, at (202) 418– 2918 or at Cathy.Williams@fcc.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: OMB Control Number: 3060–0031. OMB Approval Date: June 23, 2008. Expiration Date: June 30, 2011. Title: Application for Consent to Assignment of Broadcast Station Construction Permit or License; Application for Consent to Transfer Control of Entity Holding Broadcast Station Construction Permit or License; section 73.3580, Local Public Notice of Filing of Broadcast Applications. Form Number: FCC Forms 314 and 315. Estimated Annual Burden: 12,210 responses; 1–5 hours per response; 18,790 hours total per year. Annual Cost Burden: $33,989,570. Obligation to Respond: Required to obtain or retain benefits. The statutory authority for this collection of information is contained in 154(i), 303 and 308 of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended. Nature and Extent of Confidentiality: There is no need for confidentiality. Needs and Uses: The Instructions to Forms 314 and 315 have been revised to reflect the new ownership limits adopted in the Third Report and Order and Second Notice of Proposed Rulemaking, FCC 07–204 (released December 11, 2007), namely, that an entity may own only one LPFM station. By amending the Rules to permanently limit LPFM eligibility, the Commission is protecting the public interest in localism and fostering greater diversity of programming from community sources. Forms 314 and 315 have also been revised to reflect the three-year holding period of an LPFM license, as adopted in the Third Report and Order, during which a licensee cannot transfer or assign a license, and must operate the station. That restriction will prevent entities from using the LPFM assignment and transfer process to undermine the Commission’s LPFM policies and will ensure that the benefits to the public which were the basis for the license grant will be realized. On December 18, 2007, the Commission adopted a Report and Order and Order on Reconsideration in its 2006 Quadrennial Regulatory Review of the Commission’s Broadcast Ownership Rules pursuant to section 202 of the Telecommunications Act of 1996, MB Docket No. 06–121, FCC 07– 216. Section 202 requires the Commission to review its broadcast ownership rules every four years and PO 00000 Frm 00026 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 39303 determine whether any of such rules are necessary in the public interest. Further, section 202 requires the Commission to repeal or modify any regulation it determines to be no longer in the public interest. Consistent with actions taken by the Commission in the 2006 Quadrennial Regulatory Review, the following changes are made to Forms 314 and 315. The instructions to Forms 314 and 315 have been revised to include a reference to the 2006 Quadrennial Regulatory Review as a source of information regarding the Commission’s multiple ownership attribution policies and standards. The language in section A, IV of Worksheet 3 in Forms 314 and 315 is revised. This worksheet is used in connection with section III, Item 6b of Form 314 and section IV, Item 8b of Form 315 to determine the applicant’s compliance with the Commission’s multiple ownership rules and crossownership rules set forth in 47 CFR 73.3555. The revisions to the worksheet account for changes made by the Commission in the 2006 Quadrennial Review to 47 CFR 73.3555(d), the Daily Newspaper Cross-Ownership Rule. The revised rule changes the circumstances under which an entity may own a daily newspaper and a radio station or television station in the same designated market area. In section B of Worksheet 3 of Form 314, the description of a ‘‘Daily Newspaper’’ is changed to comport to the definition of ‘‘Newspaper’’ contained in 47 CFR 73.3555(c)(3)(iii) that the Commission revised in the 2006 Quadrennial Regulatory Review. In section B of Worksheet 3 of Form 315, language from 47 CFR 73.3555(d) is added to assist applicants in their determination of compliance with the Daily Newspaper Cross-Ownership Rule. Therefore, 47 CFR 73.3555(d) (daily newspaper crossownership rule) states: (1) No license for an AM, FM or TV broadcast station shall be granted to any party (including all parties under common control) if such party directly or indirectly owns, operates or controls a daily newspaper and the grant of such license will result in: (i) The predicted or measured 2 mV/m contour of an AM station, computed in accordance with Sec. 73.183 or Sec. 73.186, encompassing the entire community in which such newspaper is published; or (ii) The predicted 1 mV/m contour for an FM station, computed in accordance with Sec. 73.313, encompassing the entire community in which such newspaper is published; or (iii) The Grade A contour of a TV station, computed in accordance with Sec. 73.684, encompassing the entire E:\FR\FM\09JYN1.SGM 09JYN1

docket described the Agency's rationales for not conducting new risk 
assessments for the registration review of the Trichoderma species. A 
new ``down the drain'' exposure risk assessment was considered for 
linalool in response to the comments received to the initial docket. A 
preliminary assessment indicated that a full assessment would not 
provide useful information, since the annual usage of linalool is so 
low. Thus the Agency concluded the there is no incremental risk as a 
result of exposure when linalool is used as labeled. These proposed 
registration review decisions now included in the dockets continue to 
be supported by those rationales included in documents in the initial 
dockets. Following public comment, the Agency will issue a final 
registration review decision for each case.
     The registration review program is being conducted under 
congressionally mandated time frames, and EPA recognizes the need both 
to make timely decisions and to involve the public. Section 3(g) of the 
Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA) as amended 
in 1996 required EPA to establish by regulation procedures for 
reviewing pesticide registrations, originally with a goal of reviewing 
each pesticide's registration every 15 years to ensure that a pesticide 
continues to meet the FIFRA standard for registration. The Agency's 
final rule to implement this program was issued in August 2006 and 
became effective in October 2006 and appears at 40 CFR 155.40 The 
Pesticide Registration Improvement Act of 2003 (PRIA) was amended and 
extended in September 2007. FIFRA as amended by PRIA in 2007 requires 
EPA to complete registration review decisions by October 1, 2022 for 
all pesticides registered as of October 1, 2007. The registration 
review final rule provides for a minimum 60-day public comment period 
for all proposed registration review decisions. This comment period is 
intended to provide an opportunity for public input and a mechanism for 
initiating any necessary amendments to the proposed decision(s). All 
comments should be submitted using the methods in ADDRESSES, and must 
be received by EPA on or before the closing date. These comments will 
become part of the Agency Dockets for Trichoderma species and linalool. 
Comments received after the close of the comment period will be marked 
``late.'' EPA is not required to consider these late comments. The 
Agency will carefully consider all comments received by the

closing date and will provide a Response to Comments Memorandum in the 
Dockets and www.regulations.gov. The final registration review 
decisions will explain the effect that any comments have had on the 
decisions.
