General information concerning the EPA Science Advisory Board can be found on the SAB Web site at http://www.epa.gov/ sab. The SAB was established by 42 U.S.C. 4365 to provide independent scientific and technical advice to the Administrator on the technical basis for Agency positions and regulations. The SAB is a Federal advisory committee chartered under the Federal Advisory Committee Act (FACA), as amended, 5 U.S.C., App. The SAB will comply with the provisions of FACA and all appropriate SAB Staff Office procedural policies. Pursuant to the Federal Advisory Committee Act, Public Law 92–463, notice is hereby given that the EPA SAB will hold a public teleconference meeting to conduct several quality reviews and to receive a briefing on biofuels by EPA representatives. Background: SAB Telephone Conference, Tuesday, December 9, 2008: (a) SAB Quality Review of the Draft Report from the SAB Committee for the Valuation of Ecological Systems and Services (C–VPESS). The Chartered Science Advisory Board will conduct a quality review of the draft final SAB report from its Committee for Valuing the Protection of Ecological Systems and Services. The report is an original SAB study, initiated in 2003. The committee’s charge was to assess EPA valuation needs; assess the state of the art and science of valuing protection of ecological systems and services; and identify key areas for improving knowledge, methodologies, practice, and research. The report takes a multidisciplinary approach to ecological valuation issues. Additional information on this topic is available on the SAB Web site at http://yosemite.epa.gov/sab/ sabproduct.nsf/fedrgstr_activities/ Ecological%20Valuation?Open Document. (b) EPA Biofuels Briefing: On October 27, 2008, the Science Advisory Board conducted a seminar entitled ‘‘Looking to the Future’’ as part of an ongoing effort to consider EPA’s long-range strategic research vision. A part of that meeting focused on the environmental implications of biofuels. During the SAB’s December 9, 2008 telephone conference, the Board will receive a briefing from representatives of the EPA OAR Office of Transportation and Air Quality on the status of the agency’s renewable fuels program rule rwilkins on PROD1PC63 with NOTICES SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: VerDate Aug<31>2005 19:38 Nov 19, 2008 Jkt 217001 development process.

Background: SAB Telephone Conference, Tuesday, December 16, 2008: (a) SAB Quality Review of the Draft SAB Panel Report on the EPA Particulate Matter (PM) Research Centers Program. The chartered Science Advisory Board will conduct a quality review of the draft SAB report from its Particulate Matter Research Centers Program Review Advisory Panel. In 1998, the Congress directed EPA to establish as many as five universitybased PM research centers as part of the Agency’s PM research program. The first PM Research Centers were funded from 1999 to 2005 with a total program budget of $8 million annually. EPA’s PM Research Centers program was initially shaped by recommendations from the National Research Council. In 2002, EPA requested that the Science Advisory Board conduct an interim review of EPA’s PM Research Centers program. This review was instrumental in providing additional guidance for the second phase of the program (2005– 2010). Five current centers are funded for 2005–2010 with the total program budget at $40 million. EPA’s National Center for Environmental Research (NCER), within the Office of Research and Development (ORD), requested that the SAB comment on the Agency’s current PM Research Centers program and to advise EPA concerning the possible structures and strategic direction for the program from 2010 to 2015. The SAB formed the PM Research Centers Program Advisory Panel to conduct this review. The Panel met to review and discuss the program on October 1–2, 2008 and has now completed a draft report providing the results of its deliberations. Additional information on this review is available on the SAB Web site at http:// yosemite.epa.gov/sab/sabproduct.nsf/ fedrgstr_activities/2008% 20PM%2Centers%20 Program%;20Review?OpenDocument. (b) SAB Quality Review of the Draft SAB Contaminant Candidate List 3 Advisory. The Chartered Science Advisory Board will conduct a second quality review of the draft SAB Drinking Water Committee (DWC) report on EPA’s Drinking Water Contaminant Candidate List 3. This report was the subject of a quality review at the SAB’s October 28, 2008 meeting. At that meeting, the Chartered SAB asked for some revisions relative to the comments PO 00000 Frm 00037 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 70345 made by SAB members during that meeting (see these comments on the SAB Web site at the following URL http://yosemite.epa.gov/sab/sabproduct. nsf/A3B59D3624B2B1DA852574EB006 DD0C9/$File/;SAB+Comments+on+ CCL+3+Oct+28+08+Meeting.pdf) and that the report be returned to the SAB for completion of the quality review. The DWC review was conducted at the request of the EPA Office of Water. The 1996 Safe Drinking Water Act Amendments (SDWA) require EPA to (1) publish every five years a list of currently unregulated contaminants in drinking water that may pose risks and (2) make determinations on whether or not to regulate at least five contaminants from that list on a staggered five year cycle. The list must be published after consultation with the scientific community, including the SAB, after notice and opportunity for public comment, and after consideration of the occurrence database established under section 1445(g) of the SDWA. The unregulated contaminants considered for the list must include, but are not limited to, substances referred to in section 101(14) of the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act of 1980 (CERCLA), and substances registered under the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA).
