Approval and Promulgation of Air Quality Implementation Plans; Indiana, 68557 [E9-30405]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 247 / Monday, December 28, 2009 / Proposed Rules erowe on DSK5CLS3C1PROD with PROPOSALS-1 incoming secondary sorts on automated or mechanized machines, as reflected in the MODS data reporting system, but they are not counted as flats in the RPW data reporting system. The Postal Service asserts that the absence of fletters in the RPW estimate of flat volume and the presence of fletters in the machine piece-handling counts leads to an inflated In-Plant Coverage Factor which inflates the Auto/Mech factor. Proposal Twenty-Nine proposes adjustments to the Periodicals cost model that would reduce the Auto/ Mech factor to a more realistic level. Adopting suggestions made by the Commission in Docket No. RM2009–10, the Postal Service proposes to remove the number of carrier route flats from broken bundles from the MODS volume of flats that receive a mechanized incoming secondary sort.7 It also proposes to use mail processing costs to estimate the proportion of letter-sized pieces that are worked on those machines. This too would reduce the volume of mail that receive a mechanized incoming secondary sort on flat sorting equipment (recorded in MODS reports, but not the RPW) and thus reduce upward bias in the measurement of the Auto/Mech Factor. See Proposal Twenty-Nine supporting material accompanying the Petition, at 3. The hard-copy attachment to the Postal Service’s Petition explains the proposal’s background, objective and rationale. In the electronic attachment, the Postal Service provides a means for estimating the impact of adopting Proposal Twenty-Nine by itself, and for estimating its impact in conjunction with Proposal Twenty-Five in Docket No. RM2010–4, in the event that Proposal Twenty-Five is adopted. Comments on Proposal Twenty-Nine are due no later than December 29, 2009. Pursuant to 39 U.S.C. 505, John Klingenberg is appointed to serve as the officer of the Commission (Public Representative) to represent the interests of the general public in this docket. It is ordered: 7 The In-Plant IS Coverage Factor is based upon the ratio of non-carrier route flats that receive a mechanized incoming secondary sort (in MODS data) and the volume of non-carrier route flats (in the RPW). Broken carrier route flats that receive a mechanized sort would be recorded in MODS volumes, but not RPW volumes, thereby producing an upward bias in the measurement of the In-Plant IS Coverage Factor unless these broken carrier route flats are removed from the MODS measurement of the number of flats that receive a mechanized incoming secondary sort. VerDate Nov<24>2008 10:45 Dec 24, 2009 Jkt 220001 1. The Petition of the United States Postal Service Requesting Initiation of a Proceeding to Consider a Proposed Change in Analytic Principles (Proposal Twenty-Nine), filed December 11, 2009, is granted. 2. The Commission establishes Docket No. RM2010–6 to consider the matters raised in the Postal Service’s Petition. 3. Interested persons may submit comments on Proposal Twenty-Nineno later than December 29, 2009. 4. The Commission will determine the need for reply comments after review of the initial comments. 5. John Klingenberg is designated to serve as the Public Representative representing the interests of the general public. 6. The Secretary shall arrange for publication of this notice in the Federal Register. By the Commission. Shoshana M. Grove, Secretary. [FR Doc.
