Purpose: To obtain comments from the public on the revised draft document entitled, ‘‘NIOSH Current Intelligence Bulletin—Asbestos Fibers and Other Elongate Mineral Particles: State of the Science and Roadmap for Research,’’ referred to as Roadmap. Asbestos has been a highly visible issue in public health for over three decades. Many advances have been made in the scientific understanding of worker health effects from exposure to asbestos and other elongate mineral particles (EMPs), and it is now well documented that fibers of asbestos minerals, when inhaled, can cause serious diseases in exposed workers. Yet, many questions and areas of scientific uncertainty remain. Background: As the Federal agency responsible for conducting research and making recommendations for the prevention of worker injury and illness, NIOSH is undertaking a reappraisal of how to ensure appropriate protection of workers from exposure to asbestos fibers and other EMPs. The purpose of the draft Roadmap is to outline major areas of controversy and to recommend a research framework that can serve as a guide for the development of specific research programs within and across disciplines. Ultimately, the intended goal of the research is to provide answers to current scientific questions, reduce scientific uncertainties, and provide a sound scientific foundation for future policy development so that optimal health protection can be assured. NIOSH has prepared several drafts of the document and invited comments on the occupational health issues identified and the framework for research. The drafts are summarized below. In February 2007 a draft entitled ‘‘Asbestos and Other Mineral Fibers: A Roadmap for Scientific Research’’ was disseminated for public comment and scientific peer review. The February 2007 draft, public comments, peer review comments, and the responses to peer reviewers’ comments can be found at: VerDate Nov<24>2008 14:39 Feb 17, 2010 Jkt 220001 http://www.cdc.gov/niosh/docket/ NIOSHdocket0099.html. In June 2008 a draft entitled ‘‘Revised Draft NIOSH CURRENT INTELLIGENCE BULLETIN—Asbestos Fibers and Other Elongate Mineral Particles: State of the Science and Roadmap for Research’’ was disseminated for public comment. The June 2008 draft, public comments, and the responses to public comments can be found at: http://www.cdc.gov/ niosh/docket/NIOSHdocket0099A.html. In January 2009 a draft entitled ‘‘Revised Draft NIOSH CURRENT INTELLIGENCE BULLETIN—Asbestos Fibers and Other Elongated Mineral Particles: State of the Science and Roadmap for Research’’ was submitted to the Institute of Medicine and the National Research Council of the National Academies (NA) for scientific review. The NA review, titled ‘‘A Review of the NIOSH Roadmap for Research on Asbestos Fibers and Other Elongate Mineral Particles,’’ can be found at: http://www.nap.edu/ catalog.php?record_id=12697. The January 2009 draft and the responses to the NA review can be found at: http://www.cdc.gov/niosh/ docket/NIOSHdocket0099B.html. As a result of comments received during each review, NIOSH revised previous drafts and is now inviting comments on a fourth version of the draft of the document. NIOSH continues to be interested in available and forthcoming research results that can help answer the questions set forth in the Roadmap, as well as information on existing workplace exposure data, health effects, and control technologies. Submitted comments on the revised draft Roadmap should indicate the pertinent page(s) and line(s) in the draft document being addressed.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: PO 00000 Frm 00056 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Introduction With this notice, we finalize the CCP process for Rappahannock River Valley NWR. We started this plan’s development through a notice in the Federal Register (70 FR 65931) on November 1, 2005. We released the draft CCP/EA to the public, announcing and requesting comments in a notice of availability in the Federal Register (74 FR 36500) on July 23, 2009. Rappahannock River Valley NWR, consisting of more than 7,700 acres, was established in 1996 to conserve and protect fish and wildlife resources, including endangered and threatened species, and wetlands. Refuge habitats include freshwater tidal marsh, forested swamp, upland deciduous forest, mixed pine forest, and managed grassland. One federally listed species, the threatened sensitive joint-vetch (Aeschynomene virginica), is found on the refuge. The State of Virginia’s largest wintering population of bald eagles is located within the refuge boundary. Neotropical migratory songbirds, shorebirds, raptors, and marsh birds also rely on the Rappahannock River corridor during their spring and fall migrations. With help from partners and volunteers, we are restoring native grasslands and riparian forests along the river and its tributary streams to provide additional habitat for these important species. Although wildlife and habitat conservation is the refuge’s first priority, the public can observe and photograph wildlife, fish, hunt, or participate in environmental education and interpretation on several units of the refuge. The refuge contains three sites on the Virginia Birding and Wildlife Trail. The Wilna Unit, located in Richmond County, offers accessible fishing, excellent wildlife observation opportunities, and accessible nature trails. Other units of the refuge are open for visits by reservation. We announce our decision and the availability of the FONSI for the final CCP for Rappahannock River Valley NWR in accordance with National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) (40 CFR 1506.6(b)) requirements. We completed a thorough analysis of impacts on the human environment, which we included in the draft CCP/EA. The CCP will guide us in managing and administering Rappahannock River Valley NWR for the next 15 years. Alternative B, as we described in the draft CCP/EA, is the foundation for the final CCP.
