Endangered and Threatened Wildlife and Plants; 90-Day Findings on Petitions To Delist U.S. Captive Populations of the Scimitar-Horned Oryx, Dama Gazelle, and Addax
Document Number: 2012-23019
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2012-09-19
Agency: Fish and Wildlife Service, Department of the Interior
We, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (``Service''), announce 90-day findings on two petitions to remove the U.S. captive-bred and U.S. captive populations of three antelope species, the scimitar-horned oryx (Oryx dammah), dama gazelle (Gazella dama), and addax (Addax nasomaculatus), from the List of Endangered and Threatened Wildlife as determined under the Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended (Act or ESA). Based on our review, we find that the petitions present substantial information indicating that delisting the U.S. captive animals or U.S. captive-bred members of these species may be warranted. Therefore, with the publication of this notice, we are initiating a review of the status of the U.S. captive members of these species to determine if delisting the U.S. captive specimens is warranted. Based on the status review, we will issue a 12-month finding on these two petitions, which will address whether the petitioned action is warranted, as provided in section 4(b)(3)(B) of the Act.

Agency: Railroad Retirement Board, Agencies and Commissions
In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35), the Railroad Retirement Board (RRB) is forwarding three Information Collection Requests (ICR) to the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA), Office of Management and Budget (OMB). Our ICR describes the information we seek to collect from the public. Review and approval by OIRA ensures that we impose appropriate paperwork burdens. The RRB invites comments on the proposed collections of information to determine (1) the practical utility of the collections; (2) the accuracy of the estimated burden of the collections; (3) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information that is the subject of collection; and (4) ways to minimize the burden of collections on respondents, including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. Comments to the RRB or OIRA must contain the OMB control number of the ICR. For proper consideration of your comments, it is best if the RRB and OIRA receive them within 30 days of the publication date. 1. Title and purpose of information collection: Employee Representative's Status and Compensation Reports; OMB 3220-0014. Under Section 1(b)(1) of the Railroad Retirement Act (RRA), the term ``employee'' includes an individual who is an employee representative. As defined in Section 1(c) of the RRA, an employee representative is an officer or official representative of a railway labor organization other than a labor organization included in the term ``employer,'' as defined in the RRA, who before or after August 29, 1935, was in the service of an employer under the RRA and who is duly authorized and designated to represent employees in accordance with the Railway Labor Act, or, any individual who is regularly assigned to or regularly employed by such officer or official representative in connection with the duties of his or her office. The requirements relating to the application for employee representative status and the periodic reporting of the compensation resulting from such status is contained in 20 CFR part 209.10. The RRB utilizes Forms DC-2a, Employee Representative's Status Report, and DC-2, Employee Representative's Report of Compensation, to obtain the information needed to determine employee representative status and to maintain a record of creditable service and compensation resulting from such status. Completion is required to obtain or retain a benefit. One response is requested of each respondent. Previous Requests for Comments: The RRB has already published the initial 60-day notice (77 FR 40657 on July 10, 2012) required by 44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2). That request elicited no comments.

Approval and Promulgation of Implementation Plans; Florida: New Source Review-Prevention of Significant Deterioration; Fine Particulate Matter (PM2.5
Document Number: 2012-22976
Type: Rule
Date: 2012-09-19
Agency: Environmental Protection Agency
EPA is taking final action to approve changes to the Florida State Implementation Plan (SIP), submitted by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) to EPA on March 15, 2012. The March 15, 2012, SIP revision modifies Florida's New Source Review (NSR) Prevention of Significant Deterioration (PSD) permitting regulations to adopt, into the Florida SIP, federal NSR PSD requirements for the fine particulate matter (PM2.5) national ambient air quality standards (NAAQS) as promulgated in EPA's 2008 NSR PM2.5 Implementation Rule and the 2010 PM2.5 PSD Increment, Significant Impact Levels (SILs) and Significant Monitoring Concentration (SMC) Rule. EPA is approving portions of Florida's March 15, 2012, SIP revision because they are consistent with the Clean Air Act (CAA or Act) and EPA regulations regarding NSR permitting.
Approval and Promulgation of Implementation Plans; New Mexico; Albuquerque/Bernalillo County: Infrastructure and Interstate Transport Requirements for the 1997 and 2008 Ozone and the 1997 and 2006 PM2.5
Document Number: 2012-22975
Type: Rule
Date: 2012-09-19
Agency: Environmental Protection Agency
EPA is approving submittals from the Governor of New Mexico for the City of Albuquerque/Bernalillo County area, pursuant to the Clean Air Act (CAA or the Act). These submittals address the infrastructure elements specified in the CAA necessary to implement, maintain, and enforce the 1997 and 2008 8-hour ozone and the 1997 and 2006 fine particulate matter (PM2.5) national ambient air quality standards (NAAQS or standards). We find that the current Albuquerque/Bernalillo County State Implementation Plan (SIP) meets the infrastructure elements for the 1997 and 2008 8-hour ozone NAAQS and the 1997 and 2006 PM2.5 NAAQS. We also find that the current Albuquerque/Bernalillo County SIP meets the CAA requirement that emissions from sources in the area do not interfere with prevention of significant deterioration (PSD) measures required in the SIP of any other state, with regard to the 1997 and 2008 ozone and 1997 and 2006 PM2.5 NAAQS. EPA is also approving SIP revisions that modify the PSD SIP to include nitrogen oxides (NOX) as an ozone precursor. EPA is approving revisions to the Albuquerque/Bernalillo County PSD SIP that identify the PM2.5 precursors and establish significant emission rates for said precursors, consistent with the federal requirements. We are also approving other revisions to the Albuquerque/Bernalillo County PSD SIP to maintain consistency with the federal PSD permitting requirements. In addition to these revisions, EPA is approving other revisions to the Albuquerque/ Bernalillo County SIP necessary to implement the NAAQS.
Disapproval of Implementation Plan Revisions; State of California; South Coast VMT Emissions Offset Demonstrations
Document Number: 2012-22973
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2012-09-19
Agency: Environmental Protection Agency
EPA is proposing to withdraw its final approvals of state implementation plan revisions submitted by the State of California to meet the vehicle-miles-traveled emissions offset requirement under the Clean Air Act for the Los Angeles-South Coast Air Basin 1-hour and 8- hour ozone nonattainment areas. EPA is also proposing to disapprove the same plan revisions. EPA is proposing the withdrawal and disapproval actions in response to a remand by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in Association of Irritated Residents v. EPA. The effect of this action, if finalized as proposed, would be to trigger deadlines by which new plan revisions meeting the applicable requirements must be submitted by the State of California and approved by EPA to avoid sanctions and to avoid an obligation on EPA to promulgate a federal implementation plan.
Finding of Substantial Inadequacy of Implementation Plan; Call for California State Implementation Plan Revision; South Coast
Document Number: 2012-22972
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2012-09-19
Agency: Environmental Protection Agency
In response to a remand by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, and pursuant to the Clean Air Act, EPA is proposing to find that the California State Implementation Plan (SIP) for the Los Angeles-South Coast Air Basin (South Coast) is substantially inadequate to comply with the obligation to adopt and implement a plan providing for attainment of the 1-hour ozone standard. If EPA finalizes this proposed finding of substantial inadequacy, California would be required to revise its SIP to correct these deficiencies within 12 months of the effective date of our final rule. If EPA finds that California has failed to submit a complete SIP revision as required by a final rule or if EPA disapproves such a revision, such finding or disapproval would trigger clocks for mandatory sanctions and an obligation for EPA to impose a Federal Implementation Plan. EPA is also proposing that if EPA makes such a finding or disapproval, sanctions would apply consistent with our regulations, such that the offset sanction would apply 18 months after such finding or disapproval and highway funding restrictions would apply six months later unless EPA first takes action to stay the imposition of the sanctions or to stop the sanctions clock based on the State curing the SIP deficiencies.
Withdrawal of Approval of Air Quality Implementation Plans; California; San Joaquin Valley; 1-Hour and 8-Hour Ozone Extreme Area Plan Elements
Document Number: 2012-22971
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2012-09-19
Agency: Environmental Protection Agency
EPA is proposing to withdraw a March 8, 2010 final action approving state implementation plan (SIP) revisions submitted by the State of California under the Clean Air Act (CAA) to provide for attainment of the 1-hour ozone National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) in the San Joaquin Valley extreme ozone nonattainment area. This proposed action is in response to a decision issued by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit (Sierra Club v. EPA, 671 F.3d 955 (9th Cir. 2012)) remanding EPA's approval of these SIP revisions. In addition, EPA is proposing to withdraw our approval of a portion of a March 1, 2012 final rule approving SIP revisions submitted by California to provide for attainment of the 1997 8-hour ozone NAAQS in the San Joaquin Valley. The portion of this final action for which EPA is proposing to withdraw its approval addressed requirements regarding emissions growth caused by growth in vehicle miles traveled under the CAA. This proposed action is in response to a decision issued by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit (Association of Irritated Residents, 632 F.3d 584 (9th Cir. 2011), as amended Jan. 27, 2012), rejecting EPA's interpretation of the CAA, which had provided the basis for this portion of EPA's March 1, 2012 final rule.

Addition of Certain Persons to the Entity List; Removal of Person From the Entity List Based on Removal Request; and Implementation of Entity List Annual Review Changes
Document Number: 2012-22952
Type: Rule
Date: 2012-09-19
Agency: Department of Commerce, Bureau of Industry and Security
This rule amends the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) by adding six persons under eight entries to the Entity List. The persons who are added to the Entity List have been determined by the U.S. Government to be acting contrary to the national security or foreign policy interests of the United States. These persons will be listed on the Entity List under Iran and the United Arab Emirates (U.A.E.). In addition, this rule removes one person from the Entity List, as the result of a request for removal submitted by the person, a review of information provided in the removal request in accordance with the EAR, and further review conducted by the End-User Review Committee (ERC). Lastly, this rule amends the Entity List on the basis of the annual review conducted by the ERC. The ERC conducts annual reviews to determine if any entries on the Entity List should be removed or modified. This rule reflects the results of the annual review of entities located in Belarus, Canada, the People's Republic of China (China), Egypt, Germany, Hong Kong, Ireland, Israel, Kuwait, Lebanon, Malaysia, Pakistan, Singapore, South Africa, Taiwan, and the United Kingdom. On the basis of the annual review, this rule removes fourteen entries, adds three entries, and amends thirty-six other entries. The Entity List provides notice to the public that certain exports, reexports, and transfers (in-country) to entities identified on the Entity List require a license from the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) and that availability of license exceptions in such transactions is limited.

This AD continues to require replacing certain crankshafts, corrects the start date of affected engine models in Lycoming Mandatory Service Bulletin (MSB) No. 569A to the start date in Supplement No. 1 to Lycoming MSB No. 569A, dated May 27, 2009, and includes additional (formerly experimental) IO-390, AEIO-390, and AEIO- 580 series engine models having affected crankshafts. This AD was prompted by Lycoming Engines discovering that the start date of affected engine models in MSB No. 569A is incorrect and the need to include additional engine models having the affected crankshafts. We are issuing this AD to prevent failure of the crankshaft, which will result in total engine power loss, in-flight engine failure, and possible loss of the aircraft.
