The display of OMB control numbers in certain EPA regulations is consolidated in 40 CFR part 9. Abstract: The National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) for Inorganic Arsenic Emissions from Glass Manufacturing Plants were proposed on July 20, 1983, and promulgated on August 4, 1986. The standards were amended on both May 31, 1990 and October 17, 2000. These standards apply to each glass melting furnace that uses commercial arsenic as a raw material. These standards do not apply to pot furnaces. Also, rebricking is not considered construction or modification for the purposes of 40 CFR 61.05(a). This information is being collected to assure compliance with 40 CFR part 61, subpart N. The affected entities are subject to the General Provisions of the NESHAP at 40 CFR part 60, subpart A, and any changes, or additions to the General Provisions specified at 40 CFR part 63, subpart HHH. Owners or operators are also required to maintain records of the occurrence and duration of any startup, shutdown, or malfunction in the operation of an affected facility, or any period during which the monitoring system is inoperative. These notifications, reports, and records are essential in determining compliance; and are required, in general, of all sources subject to NESHAP. Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 49 hours per response. Burden means the total time, effort, or financial resources expended by persons to generate, maintain, retain, or disclose or provide information to or for a Federal agency. This includes the time needed to review instructions; develop, acquire, install, and utilize technology and systems for the purposes of collecting, validating, and verifying information, processing and maintaining information, and disclosing and providing information; adjust the existing ways to comply with any previously applicable instructions and requirements which have subsequently changed; train personnel to be able to respond to a collection of information; search data sources; complete and review the collection of information; and transmit or otherwise disclose the information. VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:14 Nov 18, 2008 Jkt 217001 Respondents/Affected Entities: Glass melting furnaces that use commercial arsenic as a raw material. These standards do not apply to pot furnaces. Estimated Number of Respondents: 16. Frequency of Response: Initially, occasionally, semi-annually, and yearly. Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 3,098. Estimated Total Annual Cost: $306,106, which is comprised of $250,106 in labor costs, Operations & Maintenance (O&M) costs of $56,000, and no annualized capital/start-up costs. Changes in the Estimates: There is no change in the total estimated burden currently identified in the OMB Inventory of Approved ICR Burdens. Dated: November 13, 2008.

ACTION: Notice. cprice-sewell on PROD1PC64 with NOTICES AGENCY: SUMMARY: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will begin to accept requests, from December 1, 2008 through January 31, 2009, for grants to supplement State and Tribal Response Programs. This notice provides guidance on eligibility for funding, use of funding, grant mechanisms and process for awarding funding, the allocation system for distribution of funding, and terms and reporting under these grants. EPA has consulted with state and tribal officials in developing this guidance. The primary goal of this funding is to ensure that state and tribal response programs include, or are taking reasonable steps to include, certain elements and a public record. Another goal is to provide funding for other activities that increase the number of response actions conducted or overseen by a state or tribal response program. This funding is not intended to supplant current state or tribal funding for their response programs. Instead, it is to supplement their funding to increase their response capacity. For fiscal year 2009, EPA will consider funding requests up to a maximum of $1.5 million per state or tribe. Subject to the availability of funds, EPA regional personnel will be available to provide technical assistance to states and tribes as they apply for and carry out these grants. DATES: This action is effective as of December 1, 2008. EPA expects to make non-competitive grant awards to states and tribes which apply during fiscal year 2009. ADDRESSES: Mailing addresses for U.S. EPA Regional Offices and U.S. EPA Headquarters can be located at http:// www.epa.gov/brownfields. VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:14 Nov 18, 2008 Jkt 217001 The U.S. EPA’s Office of Solid Waste and Emergency Response, Office of Brownfields and Land Revitalization, (202) 566–2777. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Section 128(a) of the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA), as amended, authorizes a noncompetitive $50 million grant program to establish and enhance state 1 and tribal 2 response programs. Generally, these response programs address the assessment, cleanup, and redevelopment of brownfields sites and other sites with actual or perceived contamination. Section 128(a) cooperative agreements are awarded and administered by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regional offices. This document provides guidance that will enable states and tribes to apply for and use Fiscal Year 2009 Section 128(a) funds. Requests for funding will be accepted from December 1, 2008 through January 31, 2009. Information required to be submitted with the funding request is on pages 13–15. States or tribes that fail to submit the request in the appropriate manner may forfeit their ability to request funds. First time requestors are strongly encouraged to contact their Regional Brownfields Coordinator (see page 19) prior to submitting their funding request. Requests submitted by the January 31, 2009 request deadline are preliminary; final cooperative agreement work plans and budgets will be negotiated with the regional offices once final allocation determinations are made. As in prior years, EPA will place special emphasis on reviewing a cooperative agreement recipients’ use of prior 128(a) funding in making allocation decisions. States and tribes requesting funds are required to provide a Dun and Bradstreet Data Universal Numbering System (DUNS) number with their final cooperative agreement package. For more information, please go to www.grants.gov. The Catalogue of Federal Domestic Assistance entry for the Section 128(a) State and Tribal Response Program cooperative agreements is 66.817. This grant program is eligible to be included in state and tribal Performance Partnership Grants. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: 1 The term ‘‘state’’ is defined in this document as defined in CERCLA Section 101(27). 2 The term ‘‘Indian tribe’’ is defined in this document as it is defined in CERCLA Section 101(36). Intertribal consortia, as defined in the Federal Register Notice at 67 FR 67181, No. 4, 2002, are also eligible for funding under CERCLA 128(a). PO 00000 Frm 00039 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 69637 Background State and tribal response programs oversee assessment and cleanup activities at the majority of brownfields sites across the country. The depth and breadth of state and tribal response programs vary. Some focus on CERCLA related activities, while others are multifaceted, for example, addressing sites regulated by both CERCLA and the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA). Many state programs also offer accompanying financial incentive programs to spur cleanup and redevelopment. In passing Section 128(a),3 Congress recognized the accomplishments of state and tribal response programs in cleaning up and redeveloping brownfields sites. Section 128(a) also provides EPA with an opportunity to strengthen its partnership with states and tribes. The primary goal of this funding is to ensure that state and tribal response programs include, or are taking reasonable steps to include, certain elements and a ‘‘public record.’’ The secondary goal is to provide funding for other activities that increase the number of response actions conducted or overseen by a state or tribal response program. This funding is not intended to supplant current state or tribal funding for their response programs. Instead, it is to supplement their funding to increase their response program’s capacity. Subject to the availability of funds, EPA regional personnel will be available to provide technical assistance to states and tribes as they apply for and carry out Section 128(a) cooperative agreements. Eligibility for Funding To be eligible for funding under CERCLA Section 128(a), a state or tribe must: Demonstrate that its response program includes, or is taking reasonable steps to include, the four elements of a response program, described below; or (b) be a party to voluntary response program Memorandum of Agreement (VRP MOA) 4 with EPA; And Maintain and make available to the public a record of sites at which 3 Section 128(a) was added to CERCLA in 2002 by the Small Business Liability Relief and Brownfields Revitalization Act (Brownfield Amendments). 4 The legislative history of the Brownfields Amendments indicates that Congress intended to encourage states and tribes to enter into MOAs for their voluntary response programs. States or tribes that are parties to VRP MOAs and that maintain and make available a public record are automatically eligible for Section 128(a) funding. E:\FR\FM\19NON1.SGM 19NON1
