SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: erowe on DSK5CLS3C1PROD with RULES Background Karnal bunt is a fungal disease of wheat (Triticum aestivum), durum wheat (Triticum durum), and triticale (Triticum aestivum X Secale cereale), a hybrid of wheat and rye. Karnal bunt is caused by the fungus Tilletia indica (Mitra) Mundkur and is spread primarily through the planting of infected seed followed by very specific environmental conditions matched during specific stages of wheat growth. Some countries in the international wheat market regulate Karnal bunt as a fungal disease requiring quarantine; therefore, without measures taken by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS), to prevent its spread, the presence of Karnal bunt in the United States could have significant consequences with regard to the export of wheat to international markets. Upon detection of Karnal bunt in Arizona in March of 1996, Federal quarantine and emergency actions were imposed to prevent the interstate spread of the disease to other wheat-producing areas in the United States. The quarantine continues in effect, although it has since been modified, both in terms of its physical boundaries and in terms of its restrictions on the production and movement of regulated articles from regulated areas. The regulations regarding Karnal bunt are set forth in 7 CFR 301.89–1 through 301.89–16 (referred to below as the regulations). Articles regulated for Karnal bunt are listed in § 301.89–2. VerDate Mar<15>2010 14:24 Nov 09, 2010 Jkt 223001 Conditions for determining whether an area is regulated for Karnal bunt are set forth in § 301.89–3. The regulations in § 301.89–3(e)(2) provide that we will classify a field or area as a regulated area when it is: • A field planted with seed from a lot found to contain a bunted wheat kernel; • A distinct definable area that contains at least one field that was found during survey to contain a bunted wheat kernel. The distinct definable area may include an area where Karnal bunt is not known to exist but where intensive surveys are required because of the area’s proximity to a field found during survey to contain a bunted kernel; or • A distinct definable area that contains at least one field that has been determined to be associated with grain at a handling facility containing a bunted kernel of a host crop. The distinct definable area may include an area where Karnal bunt is not known to exist but where intensive surveys are required because of the area’s proximity to the field associated with the bunted kernel at the handling facility. We are adding a portion of Maricopa County, AZ, to the list of quarantined areas in § 301.89–3(g) based on our determination that fields within that area meet the criteria of § 301.89–3(e)(2). The area includes 8 fields comprising 4,553 acres in the Buckeye/Pretoria area of Maricopa County, AZ. Under the regulations in § 301.89–3(f), a field known to have been infected with Karnal bunt, as well as any noninfected acreage surrounding the field, will be released from regulation if: • The field has been permanently removed from crop production; or • The field is tilled at least once per year for a total of 5 years (the years need not be consecutive). After tilling, the field may be planted with a crop or left fallow. If the field is planted with a host crop, the harvested grain must test negative, through the absence of bunted kernels, for Karnal bunt. In this interim rule, we are amending the list of quarantined areas in § 301.89– 3(g) by removing certain areas in La Paz County, AZ; two fields in Pinal County, AZ; the Chandler/Gilbert area of Maricopa County, AZ; Riverside County, CA; and Throckmorton and Young Counties, TX, from the list of regulated areas, based on our determination that these fields or areas are eligible for release from regulation under the criteria in § 301.89–3(f). Specifically, we are removing: Arizona • 123 fields (5,094 acres) from La Paz County. PO 00000 Frm 00003 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 68943 • 2 fields (67 acres) from Pinal County. • 50 fields (13,237 acres) from Chandler/Gilbert area of Maricopa County. California • 464 fields (14,287 acres) from Riverside County. Texas • 79 fields (5,919 acres) from Throckmorton County. • 221 fields (11,836 acres) from Young County. This action relieves restrictions on fields within those areas that are no longer warranted. We note that with the removal of those fields in Throckmorton and Young Counties, there are no longer any areas within the State of Texas that are quarantined because of Karnal bunt. Miscellaneous In § 301.89–5, ‘‘Movement of regulated articles from regulated areas,’’ paragraph (a)(3) provides for the movement of soil samples. In a final rule published February 23, 2004 (69 FR 8091–8097, Docket No. 02–056–2), we removed soil from the list of regulated articles. In that rule, we should also have removed provisions for moving soil samples, but did not. We are correcting that oversight in this rule by removing paragraph (a)(3) and the associated footnote. Immediate Action Immediate action is necessary to help prevent Karnal bunt from spreading to noninfected areas of the United States. This rule will also relieve restrictions on certain fields or areas that are no longer warranted. Under these circumstances, the Administrator has determined that prior notice and opportunity for public comment are contrary to the public interest and that there is good cause under 5 U.S.C. 553 for making this action effective less than 30 days after publication in the Federal Register. We will consider comments we receive during the comment period for this interim rule (see DATES above). After the comment period closes, we will publish another document in the Federal Register. The document will include a discussion of any comments we receive and any amendments we are making to the rule. Executive Order 12866 and Regulatory Flexibility Act This rule has been reviewed under Executive Order 12866. For this action, the Office of Management and Budget has waived its review under Executive Order 12866. This rule amends the Karnal bunt regulations by removing certain areas in E:\FR\FM\10NOR1.SGM 10NOR1 68944 Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 217 / Wednesday, November 10, 2010 / Rules and Regulations Arizona, California, and Texas from quarantine based on surveys that indicate these areas have met the criteria for release from regulation. This rule also adds 4,553 acres in the Buckeye/Pretoria area of Maricopa County, AZ, to the list of areas quarantined because of Karnal bunt. We have prepared an economic analysis for this interim rule. The analysis, which considers the number and types of entities that are likely to be affected by this action and the potential economic effects on those entities, provides the basis for the Administrator’s determination that the rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. The economic analysis may be viewed on the Regulations.gov Web site (see ADDRESSES above for instructions for accessing Regulations.gov). Copies of the economic analysis are also available from the person listed under FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT. Executive Order 12372 This program/activity is listed in the Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance under No. 10.025 and is subject to Executive Order 12372, which requires intergovernmental consultation with State and local officials. (See 7 CFR part 3015, subpart V.) Executive Order 12988 This rule has been reviewed under Executive Order 12988, Civil Justice Reform. This rule: (1) Preempts all State and local laws and regulations that are in conflict with this rule; (2) has no retroactive effect; and (3) does not require administrative proceedings before parties may file suit in court challenging this rule.

[Docket No. APHIS-2009-0079]


Karnal Bunt; Regulated Areas in Arizona, California, and Texas

AGENCY: Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service, USDA.

ACTION: Interim rule and request for comments.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: We are amending the Karnal bunt regulations to make changes to 
the list of areas or fields regulated because of Karnal bunt, a fungal 
disease of wheat. We are adding the Buckeye/Pretoria area of Maricopa 
County, AZ, to the list of regulated areas. We are also removing 
Throckmorton and Young Counties, TX, portions of Riverside County, CA, 
and certain areas in La Paz, Maricopa, and Pinal Counties, AZ, from the 
list of regulated areas based on our determination that those fields or 
areas meet our criteria for release from regulation. These actions are 
necessary to prevent the spread of Karnal bunt to noninfected areas of 
the United States and to relieve restrictions on certain areas that are 
no longer necessary.

DATES: This interim rule is effective November 10, 2010. We will 
consider all comments that we receive on or before January 10, 2011.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    Karnal bunt is a fungal disease of wheat (Triticum aestivum), durum 
wheat (Triticum durum), and triticale (Triticum aestivum X Secale 
cereale), a hybrid of wheat and rye. Karnal bunt is caused by the 
fungus Tilletia indica (Mitra) Mundkur and is spread primarily through 
the planting of infected seed followed by very specific environmental 
conditions matched during specific stages of wheat growth. Some 
countries in the international wheat market regulate Karnal bunt as a 
fungal disease requiring quarantine; therefore, without measures taken 
by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), Animal and Plant 
Health Inspection Service (APHIS), to prevent its spread, the presence 
of Karnal bunt in the United States could have significant consequences 
with regard to the export of wheat to international markets.
    Upon detection of Karnal bunt in Arizona in March of 1996, Federal 
quarantine and emergency actions were imposed to prevent the interstate 
spread of the disease to other wheat-producing areas in the United 
States. The quarantine continues in effect, although it has since been 
modified, both in terms of its physical boundaries and in terms of its 
restrictions on the production and movement of regulated articles from 
regulated areas. The regulations regarding Karnal bunt are set forth in 
7 CFR 301.89-1 through 301.89-16 (referred to below as the 
regulations). Articles regulated for Karnal bunt are listed in Sec.  
301.89-2. Conditions for determining whether an area is regulated for 
Karnal bunt are set forth in Sec.  301.89-3.
    The regulations in Sec.  301.89-3(e)(2) provide that we will 
classify a field or area as a regulated area when it is:
     A field planted with seed from a lot found to contain a 
bunted wheat kernel;
     A distinct definable area that contains at least one field 
that was found during survey to contain a bunted wheat kernel. The 
distinct definable area may include an area where Karnal bunt is not 
known to exist but where intensive surveys are required because of the 
area's proximity to a field found during survey to contain a bunted 
kernel; or
     A distinct definable area that contains at least one field 
that has been determined to be associated with grain at a handling 
facility containing a bunted kernel of a host crop. The distinct 
definable area may include an area where Karnal bunt is not known to 
exist but where intensive surveys are required because of the area's 
proximity to the field associated with the bunted kernel at the 
handling facility.
    We are adding a portion of Maricopa County, AZ, to the list of 
quarantined areas in Sec.  301.89-3(g) based on our determination that 
fields within that area meet the criteria of Sec.  301.89-3(e)(2). The 
area includes 8 fields comprising 4,553 acres in the Buckeye/Pretoria 
area of Maricopa County, AZ.
    Under the regulations in Sec.  301.89-3(f), a field known to have 
been infected with Karnal bunt, as well as any noninfected acreage 
surrounding the field, will be released from regulation if:
     The field has been permanently removed from crop 
production; or
     The field is tilled at least once per year for a total of 
5 years (the years need not be consecutive). After tilling, the field 
may be planted with a crop or left fallow. If the field is planted with 
a host crop, the harvested grain must test negative, through the 
absence of bunted kernels, for Karnal bunt.
    In this interim rule, we are amending the list of quarantined areas 
in Sec.  301.89-3(g) by removing certain areas in La Paz County, AZ; 
two fields in Pinal County, AZ; the Chandler/Gilbert area of Maricopa 
County, AZ; Riverside County, CA; and Throckmorton and Young Counties, 
TX, from the list of regulated areas, based on our determination that 
these fields or areas are eligible for release from regulation under 
the criteria in Sec.  301.89-3(f).
    Specifically, we are removing:

Arizona

     123 fields (5,094 acres) from La Paz County.
     2 fields (67 acres) from Pinal County.
     50 fields (13,237 acres) from Chandler/Gilbert area of 
Maricopa County.

California

     464 fields (14,287 acres) from Riverside County.

Texas

     79 fields (5,919 acres) from Throckmorton County.
     221 fields (11,836 acres) from Young County.
    This action relieves restrictions on fields within those areas that 
are no longer warranted. We note that with the removal of those fields 
in Throckmorton and Young Counties, there are no longer any areas 
within the State of Texas that are quarantined because of Karnal bunt.

Miscellaneous

    In Sec.  301.89-5, ``Movement of regulated articles from regulated 
areas,'' paragraph (a)(3) provides for the movement of soil samples. In 
a final rule published February 23, 2004 (69 FR 8091-8097, Docket No. 
02-056-2), we removed soil from the list of regulated articles. In that 
rule, we should also have removed provisions for moving soil samples, 
but did not. We are correcting that oversight in this rule by removing 
paragraph (a)(3) and the associated footnote.

Immediate Action

    Immediate action is necessary to help prevent Karnal bunt from 
spreading to noninfected areas of the United States. This rule will 
also relieve restrictions on certain fields or areas that are no longer 
warranted. Under these circumstances, the Administrator has determined 
that prior notice and opportunity for public comment are contrary to 
the public interest and that there is good cause under 5 U.S.C. 553 for 
making this action effective less than 30 days after publication in the 
Federal Register.
    We will consider comments we receive during the comment period for 
this interim rule (see DATES above). After the comment period closes, 
we will publish another document in the Federal Register. The document 
will include a discussion of any comments we receive and any amendments 
we are making to the rule.

Executive Order 12866 and Regulatory Flexibility Act

    This rule has been reviewed under Executive Order 12866. For this 
action, the Office of Management and Budget has waived its review under 
Executive Order 12866.
    This rule amends the Karnal bunt regulations by removing certain 
areas in

[[Page 68944]]

Arizona, California, and Texas from quarantine based on surveys that 
indicate these areas have met the criteria for release from regulation. 
This rule also adds 4,553 acres in the Buckeye/Pretoria area of 
Maricopa County, AZ, to the list of areas quarantined because of Karnal 
bunt.
    We have prepared an economic analysis for this interim rule. The 
analysis, which considers the number and types of entities that are 
likely to be affected by this action and the potential economic effects 
on those entities, provides the basis for the Administrator's 
determination that the rule will not have a significant economic impact 
on a substantial number of small entities. The economic analysis may be 
viewed on the Regulations.gov Web site (see ADDRESSES above for 
instructions for accessing Regulations.gov). Copies of the economic 
analysis are also available from the person listed under FOR FURTHER 
INFORMATION CONTACT.
