Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 237 / Friday, December 9, 2011 / Notices practicable before the separated MSW is used as a feedstock for biofuel production. EPA has outlined registration requirements for producers of renewable fuel made from separated MSW in 80.1450(b)(1)(viii), including the requirement for submission of a separation plan. EPA has also developed supplemental questions to better understand where the recyclable materials will be diverted after separation, the recycle goals of the local community, and the existing recycling programs and infrastructure in the region. Fiberight provided responses to these supplemental questions in their plan (referenced in pages 13 to 16 of their plan). EPA solicits comments and information to assist EPA in evaluating the Fiberight separation plan for possible approval. Although EPA’s approval or disapproval of the Fiberight separation plan will not be conducted through rulemaking, and an opportunity for public comment is not legally required prior to EPA action on the plan, EPA is soliciting public comment at this time because the Fiberight separation plan is the first such plan to be submitted to EPA for approval. EPA believes that public comment on this first plan submission would be beneficial, but EPA may not seek public comment prior to approval or disapproval of future separation plan submissions. The public is specifically invited to comment whether Fiberight’s separation plan incorporates all of the elements required in the regulations and provides for the separation of recyclable cardboard, plastics, rubber, textiles, metals, and glass from MSW to the extent that is reasonably practicable.

Background and Brief Description The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) of 2009 was signed into law on February 17, 2009, PO 00000 Frm 00043 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Public Law 11–5 (‘‘Recovery Act’’). The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has developed an initiative in response to ARRA—the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA)—that is helping to reorient the U.S. health care system from primarily treating disease to promoting population health and well-being. The ACA created a new Prevention and Public Health Fund designed to expand and sustain the necessary infrastructure to prevent disease, detect it early, and manage conditions before they become severe. Section 4002 of the ACA authorized the Community Transformation Grants (CTG) program to promote the development of healthier communities through strategies designed to reduce chronic disease rates, prevent the development of secondary conditions, reduce health disparities, and develop a stronger evidence base for effective prevention programming. In September 2011, CDC funded 61 CTG cooperative agreements with state, local and tribal government agencies, and nonprofit organizations. Twenty-six awardees are focused on capacity building efforts, and 35 awardees are working to implement sustainable, broad, evidence- and practice-based policy, environmental, programmatic and infrastructure changes to improve public health. Each CTG implementation awardee is developing a work plan for its jurisdiction or service area that focuses on one or more of the following five strategic directions: (1) Tobacco-free living, (2) active lifestyles and healthy eating, (3) high impact evidence-based clinical and other preventive services, (4) social and emotional well-being, and (5) healthy and safe physical environments. As part of a multi-component evaluation plan for the CTG program, CDC is seeking OMB approval to collect the information needed to conduct cost and cost-benefit analyses relating to the implementation of CTG-funded community interventions. Using a system dynamics approach, CDC also plans to conduct simulation modeling which will integrate the cost data with other data to predict selected chronic disease outcomes and their associated monetary impacts under various scenarios. CDC and NIH have previously collaborated on the development of analytic tools for system dynamics modeling under more limited conditions. The collection and analysis of actual cost data from CTG awardees will support the expansion and refinement of these analytic tools with respect to short-, intermediate- and long-term outcomes for large-scale, E:\FR\FM\09DEN1.SGM 09DEN1
