FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Jennifer Davis Heaps at 301–837–1801. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The location of NARA’s Kansas City regional archives has changed. This document proposes to update 36 CFR Part 1253 with the new location information. Also, NARA proposes a change of hours for our Kansas City location and existing New York City location. Kansas City, MO NARA published a notice in the Federal Register on October 20, 2008 (73 FR 62340), announcing a temporary change in hours for our Kansas City regional archives to prepare for the move to the location covered in this proposed rule. On March 17, 2009, the Kansas City regional archives relocated to the Union Station Complex at 400 West Pershing Road, Kansas City, Missouri. We are proposing to revise 36 CFR 1253.7(c) to include the new address for that regional archives, as well as the new research room hours, 8 a.m.–4 p.m., Tuesday–Saturday. These hours correspond with public hours for other institutions in the Union Station/ Crossroads cultural district, including the Kansas City Museum at Union Station and the National World War I Museum. Other hours at the new Kansas City location are as follows: • Exhibits Galleries: 9 a.m.–5 p.m., Tuesday–Saturday. • Administration and Records Management Services to Federal Agencies: 8 a.m.–4:30 p.m., Monday– Friday. • Kansas City Store at the National Archives: 10 a.m.–4 p.m., Tuesday– Saturday. These hours, while not proposed for inclusion in § 1253.7(c) of this part, will be available on NARA’s Web site, http://www.archives.gov. New York, NY NARA is also proposing to shift the hours open to the public at the New York City regional archives to better serve patrons for the range of hours the vast majority want to visit. There will be E:\FR\FM\12JNP1.SGM 12JNP1 27957 Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 112 / Friday, June 12, 2009 / Proposed Rules slightly fewer hours per week but with little, if any, anticipated adverse impact upon the public. This location is currently open Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. and the first Saturday of each month from 8:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. (42.5 hours per week, plus 8 extended hours per month). Proposed new hours would be Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. and on the first Saturday of each month, 9 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. (40 hours per week, plus 7.5 extended hours per month). This change would result in a slight reduction of hours (2.5 hours per week, plus half an hour per month).

Public Visitors at NARA’s New York Regional Archives, October 2006– February 2009. As seen in Figure 1, from October 2007 through September 2008, New York had no visitors before 9 a.m. on just under 30 percent of the days open to the public. From October 2008 through February 2009, there were no visitors before 9 a.m. on 38 percent of the days open to the public. As a result, we do not anticipate that opening one hour later will negatively impact public use. Visitors who do arrive before 9 a.m. usually are regular researchers who remain at the facility most of the day. We also believe that remaining open until 5 p.m. will benefit those who come to us later in the day. In many cases, these visitors arrive after 4 p.m. and have been sent to our offices by other Federal agencies. This proposed rule is not a significant regulatory action for the purposes of Executive Order 12866 and has not been reviewed by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB). As required by the Regulatory Flexibility Act, it is hereby certified that this proposed rule will not have a significant impact on a substantial number of small entities because this rule applies to individual researchers. This proposed rule does not have any federalism implications. List of Subjects in 36 CFR Part 1253 Archives and records.

ACTION: Proposed rule. PART 1253—LOCATIONS OF RECORDS AND HOURS OF USE Authority: 44 U.S.C. 2104(a). § 1253.7 SUMMARY: EPA is proposing several related actions affecting the ClevelandAkron-Lorain, Ohio 8-hour ozone nonattainment area. EPA is proposing to make a determination under the Clean Air Act (CAA) that the ClevelandAkron-Lorain nonattainment area has PO 00000 Frm 00013 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 259 264 105 Number of days with no visitors before 9 a.m. Average number of visitors between 8 and 9 a.m. 53 79 40 1.5 0.9 0.9 attained the 8-hour ozone National Ambient Air Quality Standard (NAAQS). The Cleveland-Akron-Lorain area includes Ashtabula, Cuyahoga, Geauga, Lake, Lorain, Medina, Portage, and Summit Counties. This determination is based on qualityassured ambient air quality monitoring data for the 2006–2008 ozone seasons that demonstrate that the 8-hour ozone NAAQS has been attained in the area. EPA is also proposing to approve, as a revision to the Ohio State Implementation Plan (SIP), the State’s plan for maintaining the 8-hour ozone NAAQS through 2020 in the area. EPA is proposing to approve a request from the State of Ohio to redesignate the Cleveland-Akron-Lorain area to attainment of the 8-hour ozone NAAQS. The Ohio Environmental Protection Agency (Ohio EPA) submitted this request on March 17, 2009, and supplemented it on April 24, 2009. EPA is proposing to approve the 2002 base year emissions inventory for the Cleveland-Akron-Lorain area as meeting the requirements of the CAA. If EPA’s determination that the area has attained the standard is made final, under the provisions of EPA’s ozone implementation rule, the requirement to submit certain planning SIPS related to attainment, including attainment demonstration requirements (the reasonably available control measure (RACM) requirement, the reasonable further progress (RFP) and attainment demonstration requirements, and the requirement for contingency measures) are not applicable to the area as long as it continues to attain the NAAQS and would cease to apply upon redesignation. EPA is proposing to approve Ohio’s 15 percent (15%) Rate of Progress (ROP) plan as meeting the requirements of the CAA for the 1-hour ozone standard. EPA is also proposing to approve a waiver, for the ClevelandAkron-Lorain area, from the oxides of nitrogen (NOX) requirements of section E:\FR\FM\12JNP1.SGM 12JNP1

Figure 1. Public Visitors at NARA's New York Regional Archives, October 
2006-February 2009.

    As seen in Figure 1, from October 2007 through September 2008, New 
York had no visitors before 9 a.m. on just under 30 percent of the days 
open to the public. From October 2008 through February 2009, there were 
no visitors before 9 a.m. on 38 percent of the days open to the public. 
As a result, we do not anticipate that opening one hour later will 
negatively impact public use. Visitors who do arrive before 9 a.m. 
usually are regular researchers who remain at the facility most of the 
day. We also believe that remaining open until 5 p.m. will benefit 
those who come to us later in the day. In many cases, these visitors 
arrive after 4 p.m. and have been sent to our offices by other Federal 
agencies.
    This proposed rule is not a significant regulatory action for the 
purposes of Executive Order 12866 and has not been reviewed by the 
Office of Management and Budget (OMB). As required by the Regulatory 
Flexibility Act, it is hereby certified that this proposed rule will 
not have a significant impact on a substantial number of small entities 
because this rule applies to individual researchers. This proposed rule 
does not have any federalism implications.
