E9–24745 Filed 10–14–09; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 4910–15–P erowe on DSK5CLS3C1PROD with PROPOSALS-1 Background and Purpose On August 28, 2009, the Coast Guard published an NPRM entitled ‘‘Standards for Living Organisms in Ships’ Ballast Water Discharged in U.S. Waters’’ in the Federal Register (74 FR 44632). The comment period for the NPRM was to close on November 27, 2009. On the same day, the Coast Guard also published a Notice of Availability in the Federal Register informing the public that the DPEIS for the ‘‘Standards for Living Organisms in Ships’ Ballast Water Discharged in U.S. Waters’’ rulemaking had been added to the docket and was available for public comment (74 FR 44673). The August 28, 2009 Notice of Availability for the DPEIS stated that the public comment period for the DPEIS would close on November 27, 2009. Council on Environmental Quality regulations at 40 CFR part 1506.10 state that ‘‘(a) The Environmental Protection Agency shall publish a notice in the Federal Register each week of the environmental impact statements filed during the preceding week. The minimum time periods set forth in this section shall be calculated from the date of publication of this notice. (b) No decision on the proposed action shall be made or recorded under Sec. 1505.2 by a Federal agency until the later of the following dates: (1) Ninety days after publication of the notice described above in paragraph (a) of this section for a draft environmental impact statement.’’ The Environmental Protection Agency did not publish their notice of availability for the DPEIS until September 4, 2009. Accordingly, the Coast Guard has decided to extend the comment periods for both the NPRM and the DPEIS in order to ensure that the public has adequate time to submit comments regarding these important proposals. The comment period for the NPRM and the DPEIS will now close on December 4, 2009. Additionally, you are reminded that you may comment on any aspect of the rulemaking, including on any comments placed in the docket. We may change the proposed rule or the DPEIS in response to the comments received.
