AGENCY: ACTION: Decision and Order. SUMMARY: This notice publishes the Department of Energy’s Decision and Order in Case No. CD–002, which grants to LG Electronics Inc. (LG) a waiver from the existing Department of Energy (DOE) residential clothes dryer test procedure for its product line of DLEC733W ventless clothes dryers, because the existing test procedure only applies to clothes dryers that are vented.

Ms. Francine Pinto or Mr. Eric Stas, U.S. Department of Energy, Office of the General Counsel, Mailstop GC–72, Forrestal Building, 1000 Independence Avenue, SW., Washington, DC 20585– 0103. Telephone: (202) 586–9507. Email: Francine.Pinto@hq.doe.gov or Eric.Stas@hq.doe.gov. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: In accordance with 10 CFR 430.27(l), DOE gives notice of the issuance of its Decision and Order as set forth below. In the Decision and Order, DOE grants to LG a waiver from the existing residential clothes dryer test procedure under 10 CFR part 430, subpart B, Appendix D, for its ventless clothes dryer (model DLEC733W), which does not have an outside exhaust. jlentini on PROD1PC65 with NOTICES SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:09 Nov 07, 2008 Jkt 217001 Title III of the Energy Policy and Conservation Act (EPCA) sets forth a variety of provisions concerning energy efficiency. Part A of Title III provides for the ‘‘Energy Conservation Program for Consumer Products Other Than Automobiles.’’ 1 (42 U.S.C. 6291–6309) Part A includes definitions, test procedures, labeling provisions, energy conservation standards, and the authority to require information and reports from manufacturers. Further, Part A authorizes the Secretary of Energy (the Secretary) to prescribe test procedures that are reasonably designed to produce results which measure energy efficiency, energy use, or estimated operating costs, and that are not unduly burdensome to conduct. (42 U.S.C. 6293(b)(3)) Relevant to the current Petition for Waiver, the test procedure for residential clothes dryers is set forth in 10 CFR part 430, subpart B, Appendix D, ‘‘Uniform Test Method for Measuring the Energy Consumption of Clothes Dryers.’’ In addition, DOE’s regulations contain provisions allowing a person to seek a waiver from the test procedure requirements for covered products when the petitioner’s basic model contains one or more design characteristics that prevent testing of the basic model according to the prescribed test procedure, or when the prescribed test procedure may evaluate the basic model in a manner so unrepresentative of its true energy consumption characteristics as to provide materially inaccurate comparative data. 10 CFR 430.27(a)(1). Petitioners must include in their petition any alternate test procedures known to evaluate the basic model in a manner representative of its energy consumption. 10 CFR 430.27(b)(1)(iii). The Assistant Secretary for Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (the Assistant Secretary) may grant the waiver subject to conditions, including adherence to alternate test procedures. 10 CFR 430.27(l). Waivers generally terminate on the effective date of a final rule which prescribes amended test procedures appropriate to the model 1 This part was originally titled Part B; however, it was redesignated Part A, after Part B of Title III was repealed by Public Law 109–58. PO 00000 Frm 00052 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 66641 series manufactured by the petitioner, thereby eliminating any need for the continuation of the waiver. 10 CFR 430.27(m). The waiver process contained in DOE’s regulations also allows any interested person who has submitted a Petition for Waiver to file an Application for Interim Waiver of the applicable test procedure requirements. 10 CFR 430.27(a)(2). The Assistant Secretary will grant an Interim Waiver request if it is determined that the applicant will experience economic hardship if the Interim Waiver is denied, if it appears likely that the Petition for Waiver will be granted, and/ or the Assistant Secretary determines that it would be desirable for public policy reasons to grant immediate relief pending a determination on the Petition for Waiver. 10 CFR 430.27(g). An Interim Waiver remains in effect for a period of 180 days or until DOE issues its determination on the Petition for Waiver, whichever occurs first, and may be extended by DOE for 180 days, if necessary. 10 CFR 430.27(h). On November 14, 2005, LG filed an Application for Interim Waiver and Petition for Waiver from the test procedures for energy consumption which are applicable to its product line of ventless 2 clothes dryers, under basic model number DLEC733W. As noted above, the relevant test procedures are contained in 10 CFR part 430, subpart B, Appendix D. LG seeks a waiver from the test procedures for this product line because, LG asserts, the current clothes dryer test procedures only apply to vented clothes dryers and require the use of an exhaust restrictor to simulate the backpressure effects of a vent tube in an installed condition. According to LG, its line of condenser (ventless) clothes dryers does not have exhaust vents and does not vent exhaust air to the outside as do conventional (vented) dryers, and because the test procedures do not provide a definition or mention of a ventless clothes dryer, its products cannot be tested according to 10 CFR part 430, subpart B, Appendix D. On August 23, 2006, DOE published LG’s Petition for Waiver and denied the Application for Interim Waiver. 71 FR 49437. In that notice, DOE proposed and requested comment on an alternate test procedure for testing ventless clothes dryer products, as discussed below. In denying LG’s request for an Interim Waiver, DOE questioned whether it 2 In LG’s Petition for Waiver, the terms ‘‘condenser’’ or ‘‘condensing’’ were used instead of ‘‘ventless’’ to describe this product. No change in meaning is intended by this substitution, which was made to be consistent with other DOE documents. E:\FR\FM\10NON1.SGM 10NON1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On March 24, 2004, the U.S. Election 
Assistance Commission published in the Federal Register the original 
HAVA State plans filed by the fifty States, the District of Columbia 
and the Territories of American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. 
Virgin Islands. 69 FR 14002. HAVA anticipated that States, Territories 
and the District of Columbia would change or update their plans from 
time to time pursuant to HAVA section 254(a)(11) through (13). HAVA 
sections 254(a)(11)(A) and 255 require EAC to publish such updates. 
This is Rhode Island's first revision to its State plan.
    The revised State plan from Rhode Island accounts for the use of 
Fiscal Year 2008 requirements payments. In accordance with HAVA section 
254(a)(12), the State plan submitted for publication provides 
information on how the State succeeded in carrying out its previous 
State plan. The State confirms that these changes to its State plan 
were developed and submitted to public comment in accordance with HAVA 
sections 254(a)(11), 255, and 256.
    Upon the expiration of thirty days from November 10, 2008, the 
State is eligible to implement the changes addressed in the plan that 
is published herein, in accordance with HAVA section 254(a)(11)(C).
    EAC wishes to acknowledge the effort that went into revising this 
State plan and encourages further public comment, in writing, to the 
State election official listed below.
