Attachment III Suspension Report– Explanatory Appendix A discussion of the basis for the Notices of Intent to Suspend follows. On March 3, 2006, the Agency issued the Phase 5 Reregistration Eligibility Decision (RED) Data Call-In Notice pursuant to sections 4(g)(2)(B) of FIFRA which required registrants of products containing MCPA used as an active ingredient to develop and submit certain data. The data/information was determined to be necessary to satisfy the reregistration requirements of section 4(g) of FIFRA. Failure to comply with the requirements of a Phase 5 Reregistration Eligibility Decision Product Data Call-In Notice (PDCI) is a basis for suspension under section 3(c)(2)(B) of FIFRA. The Scotts Company (Scotts) received the MCPA RED on March 6, 2006 (as evidenced by the signed and dated U.S. Postal Service domestic return receipt card). They did not respond to the PDCI with the required 90–day PDCI response for any of the three products, nor with the required 8–month responses with the required data. A letter from Linda Propst to Sheila Kendricks of Scotts was sent on November 14, 2006, which indicated that the Agency had not received the required data by the established due dates. It also stated that if data were not submitted within 15 days, a Notice of Intent to Suspend would be initiated. The return receipt for that letter was postmarked on November 20, 2006. On March 20, 2007, a second letter from Linda Propst to Sheila Kendricks of Scotts was sent indicating that data had still not been received and a Notice of Intent to Suspend will be forthcoming if data were not received in 10 days. The return receipt for that letter was postmarked on March 27, 2007. That letter was our second and final attempt to obtain the necessary documentation to support these products. Since neither the required 90–day nor 8–month responses have been submitted for the MCPA PDCI, this Notice of Intent to Suspend is being issued. VI. Conclusions EPA issued a Notice of Intent to Suspend on the date indicated and the Notice of Intent to Suspend was received by the registrant on April 14, 2008. The Notice of Intent to Suspend became an effective suspension order on May 14, 2008. Any further information regarding this Notice or the suspension order may be obtained from the contact person noted above. List of Subjects Environmental protection.

Notice. AGENCY: ACTION: SUMMARY: The Federal Medical Assistance Percentages and Enhanced Federal Medical Assistance Percentages VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:30 Nov 25, 2008 Jkt 217001 for Fiscal Year 2010 have been calculated pursuant to the Social Security Act (the Act). These percentages will be effective from October 1, 2009 through September 30, 2010. This notice announces the calculated ‘‘Federal Medical Assistance Percentages’’ and ‘‘Enhanced Federal Medical Assistance Percentages’’ that The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) will use in determining the amount of Federal matching for State medical assistance (Medicaid) and State Children’s Health Insurance Program (SCHIP) expenditures, and Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) Contingency Funds, the Federal share of Child Support Enforcement collections, Child Care Mandatory and Matching Funds of the Child Care and Development Fund, Foster Care Title IV–E Maintenance payments, and Adoption Assistance payments. The table gives figures for each of the 50 States, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, Guam, American Samoa, and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands. Programs under title XIX of the Act exist in each jurisdiction. Programs under titles I, X, and XIV operate only in Guam and the Virgin Islands, while a program under title XVI (Aid to the Aged, Blind, or Disabled) operates only in Puerto Rico. Programs under title XXI began operating in fiscal year 1998. The percentages in this notice apply to State expenditures for most medical services and medical insurance services, and assistance payments for certain social services. The statute provides separately for Federal matching of administrative costs. Sections 1905(b) and 1101(a)(8)(B) of the Act require the Secretary, HHS to publish the Federal Medical Assistance Percentages each year. The Secretary is to calculate the percentages, using formulas in sections 1905(b) and 1101(a)(8)(B), from the Department of Commerce’s statistics of average income per person in each State and for the Nation as a whole. The percentages are within the upper and lower limits given in section 1905(b) of the Act. The percentages to be applied to the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, Guam, American Samoa, and the Northern Mariana Islands are specified in statute, and thus are not based on the statutory formula that determines the percentages for the 50 States. The ‘‘Federal Medical Assistance Percentages’’ are for Medicaid. Section 1905(b) of the Act specifies the formula for calculating Federal Medical Assistance Percentages as follows: PO 00000 Frm 00029 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 72051 ‘‘Federal medical assistance percentage’’ for any State shall be 100 per centum less the State percentage; and the State percentage shall be that percentage which bears the same ratio to 45 per centum as the square of the per capita income of such State bears to the square of the per capita income of the continental United States (including Alaska) and Hawaii; except that (1) the Federal medical assistance percentage shall in no case be less than 50 per centum or more than 83 per centum, (2) the Federal medical assistance percentage for Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, Guam, the Northern Mariana Islands, and American Samoa shall be 50 per centum. * * * Section 4725(b) of the Balanced Budget Act of 1997 amended section 1905(b) to provide that the Federal Medical Assistance Percentage for the District of Columbia for purposes of titles XIX and XXI shall be 70 percent. For the District of Columbia, we note under the table of Federal Medical Assistance Percentages the rate that applies in certain other programs calculated using the formula otherwise applicable, and the rate that applies in certain other programs pursuant to section 1118 of the Social Security Act. Section 2105(b) of the Act specifies the formula for calculating the Enhanced Federal Medical Assistance Percentages as follows: The ‘‘enhanced FMAP’’, for a State for a fiscal year, is equal to the Federal medical assistance percentage (as defined in the first sentence of section 1905(b)) for the State increased by a number of percentage points equal to 30 percent of the number of percentage points by which (1) such Federal medical assistance percentage for the State, is less than (2) 100 percent; but in no case shall the enhanced FMAP for a State exceed 85 percent. The ‘‘Enhanced Federal Medical Assistance Percentages’’ are for use in the State Children’s Health Insurance Program under title XXI, and in the Medicaid program for certain children for expenditures for medical assistance described in sections 1905(u)(2) and 1905(u)(3) of the Act. There is no specific requirement to publish the Enhanced Federal Medical Assistance Percentages. We include them in this notice for the convenience of the States. DATES: Effective Dates: The percentages listed will be effective for each of the 4 quarter-year periods in the period beginning October 1, 2009 and ending September 30, 2010.

Humphrey Building, 200 Independence Avenue, SW., Washington, DC 20201 (202) 690– 6870. E:\FR\FM\26NON1.SGM 26NON1
