OMB may amend or waive the requirement for public consultation to the extent that public participation in the approval process would defeat the purpose of the information collection, violate State or Federal law, or substantially interfere with any agency’s ability to perform its statutory obligations. The Acting Director, Information Collection Clearance Division, Regulatory Information Management Services, Office of Management, publishes that notice containing proposed information collection requests prior to submission of these requests to OMB. Each proposed information collection, grouped by office, contains the following: (1) Type of review requested, e.g. new, revision, extension, existing or reinstatement; (2) Title; (3) Summary of the collection; (4) Description of the need for, and proposed use of, the information; (5) Respondents and frequency of collection; and (6) Reporting and/or Recordkeeping burden. OMB invites public comment. The Department of Education is especially interested in public comment addressing the following issues: (1) Is this collection necessary to the proper functions of the Department; (2) will this information be processed and used in a timely manner; (3) is the estimate VerDate Nov<24>2008 18:01 Dec 21, 2009 Jkt 220001 of burden accurate; (4) how might the Department enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (5) how might the Department minimize the burden of this collection on the respondents, including through the use of information technology.

The grant applications submitted for this program assist applicants to provide Indian students with the opportunity to meet the same challenging state standards as all other students and meet the unique educational and culturally related academic needs of American Indian and Alaska Native students. The amount of the award for each applicant is determined by a formula based on the reported number of American Indian/ Alaska Native students identified in the application and the state per pupil expenditure.

SUMMARY: Pursuant to Clean Air Act (CAA) Section 505(b)(2) and 40 CFR 70.8(d), the EPA Administrator signed an Order, dated November 30, 2009, both granting and denying, in part, a petition to object to a merged prevention of significant deterioration (PSD) and state operating permit issued by the Kentucky Division for Air Quality (KDAQ) to East Kentucky Power Cooperative, Inc. (EKPC) for its Hugh L. Spurlock Generating Station located in Maysville, Mason County, Kentucky. This Order constitutes a final action on the remaining two issues raised in the petition submitted by Sierra Club (Petitioner) on April 28, 2008. Pursuant to section 505(b)(2) of the CAA, any person may seek judicial review of the Order in the United States Court of Appeals for the appropriate circuit within 60 days of this notice under section 307(b) of the Act.

ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY The CAA affords EPA a 45-day period to review and, as appropriate, the authority to object to operating permits proposed by state permitting authorities under title V of the CAA, 42 U.S.C. 7661–7661f. Section 505(b)(2) of the CAA and 40 CFR 70.8(d) authorize any person to petition the EPA Administrator to object to a title V operating permit within 60 days after the expiration of EPA’s 45day review period if EPA has not objected on its own initiative. Petitions must be based only on objections to the permit that were raised with reasonable specificity during the public comment period provided by the state, unless the petitioner demonstrates that it was impracticable to raise these issues during the comment period or the grounds for the issues arose after this period. Petitioner submitted a petition regarding the EKPC Spurlock Generating Station on April 28, 2008, requesting that EPA object to Revision 2 to the EKPC merged PSD and title V operating permit. Pursuant to a proposed Consent Decree, EPA agreed to address the issue regarding the lack of hazardous air pollutant emission limits under section 112(g) of the CAA in an order that was issued on September 21, 2009. The remaining two issues are addressed in this Order. The issues are: (1) The permit revision proposed by KDAQ fails to include the required heat input limit applicable to Unit 2 and unlawfully attempts to increase that limit without going through PSD (or any other CAA title I) permitting and (2) KDAQ’s review of low-sulfur coal was not adequate. On November 30, 2009, the Administrator issued an Order both granting and denying, in part, the petition with respect to the remaining two issues. The Order explains EPA’s rationale for granting the petition with respect to issue 2 and denying the petition with respect to issue 1.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The CAA affords EPA a 45-day period to 
review and, as appropriate, the authority to object to operating 
permits proposed by state permitting authorities under title V of the 
CAA, 42 U.S.C. 7661-7661f. Section 505(b)(2) of the CAA and 40 CFR 
70.8(d) authorize any person to petition the EPA Administrator to 
object to a title V operating permit within 60 days after the 
expiration of EPA's 45-day review period if EPA has not objected on its 
own initiative. Petitions must be based only on objections to the 
permit that were raised with reasonable specificity during the public 
comment period provided by the state, unless the petitioner 
demonstrates that it was impracticable to raise these issues during the 
comment period or the grounds for the issues arose after this period.
    Petitioner submitted a petition regarding the EKPC Spurlock 
Generating Station on April 28, 2008, requesting that EPA object to 
Revision 2 to the EKPC merged PSD and title V operating permit. 
Pursuant to a proposed Consent Decree, EPA agreed to address the issue 
regarding the lack of hazardous air pollutant emission limits under 
section 112(g) of the CAA in an order that was issued on September 21, 
2009. The remaining two issues are addressed in this Order. The issues 
are: (1) The permit revision proposed by KDAQ fails to include the 
required heat input limit applicable to Unit 2 and unlawfully attempts 
to increase that limit without going through PSD (or any other CAA 
title I) permitting and (2) KDAQ's review of low-sulfur coal was not 
adequate.
    On November 30, 2009, the Administrator issued an Order both 
granting and denying, in part, the petition with respect to the 
remaining two issues. The Order explains EPA's rationale for granting 
the petition with respect to issue 2 and denying the petition with 
respect to issue 1.
