Request for Information (RFI): Opportunities To Apply a Department of Health and Human Services Message Library To Advance Understanding About Toddler and Preschool Nutrition and Physical Activity
Document Number: 2013-01728
Type: Notice
Date: 2013-01-29
Agency: Department of Health and Human Services, Health Resources and Services Administration
This Request for Information (RFI) solicits ideas and information related to ways in which the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) can work with interested partners to disseminate and apply a library of short, evidence-based messages known as TXT4Tots. This library of brief informational nutrition and physical activity focused messages was developed and tested by the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) under a cooperative agreement with the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA). The TXT4Tots library is targeted to parents and caregivers of children, ages 1-5 years, and is available in both English and Spanish. Content for the messages was derived from AAP's ``Bright Futures: Guidelines for Health Supervision of Infants, Children, and Adolescents,'' which uses a developmentally based approach to address children's health needs in the context of family and community. The name TXT4Tots describes the library of developed messages and does not necessarily imply the need for dissemination through mobile, Short Message Service messaging. HRSA is issuing this RFI to solicit information and ideas on how to effectively incorporate the TXT4Tots library of messages into a wide variety of existing public and private programs and products that can best meet the needs of parents, caregivers, and child advocates, including health care providers. We recognize there are multiple ways this can occur and, therefore, are seeking input on how the TXT4Tots message library could be maximized to advance understanding about toddler and preschool nutrition and physical activity, and the interests of potential partners in working with HHS to do so. The intent is to build upon current programs, policies, and infrastructure to enhance education, disseminate the TXT4Tots message library, and leverage existing programs in innovative ways, particularly to support outreach to underserved communities where access to health education may be limited. The goal is to ensure that the TXT4Tots library of messages remains publicly available at no cost for noncommercial purposes. In addition to this RFI for written comments, HRSA intends to host a short, in-person forum in Washington, DC, to hear proposed comments from the public. Participation in the forum will also be possible through a dedicated conference call line and webinar capabilities. Further details on the forum are described below.

Document Number: 2013-01723
Type: Notice
Date: 2013-01-29
Agency: Department of Defense, Department of the Army, Corps of Engineers
The purpose of the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) is to address alternatives and environmental impacts associated with proposed dredging (sediment removal and disposal) activities by the State of Kansas at John Redmond Dam and Reservoir, Kansas. The State of Kansas, acting through the Kansas Water Office (KWO), proposes to fund and perform removal of excessive accumulated sediment from John Redmond Reservoir for the purpose of at least partially restoring conservation pool storage capacity. The proposed action would restore water supply storage for water users as well as regain lost aquatic habitat to the benefit of recreational users and the lake ecosystem. Dredging activities are proposed by the State of Kansas in response to accumulation of excessive amounts of sediment at unanticipated in-lake settling locations and resulting adverse impacts to a critical water supply as well as an important recreational and biological resource.

Type: Notice

This Notice describes changes to the Department of Labor's (Department) Delinquent Filer Voluntary Compliance Program (DFVC Program or Program). Administrators of employee benefit plans subject to Title I of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA) who fail to file annual reports on a timely basis can be subject to civil penalties under section 502(c)(2) of ERISA. The DFVC Program is intended to encourage delinquent plan administrators to comply with their annual reporting obligations under ERISA through the assessment of reduced civil penalties. The DFVC Program was initially adopted in 1995 and was last updated in a published Federal Register Notice on March 28, 2002 (2002 Notice). The Department's DFVC Program Web site has been updated periodically since 2002 to reflect the adoption of technical changes to the Program. Most recently, the DFVC Program Web site was updated to reflect the Department's final regulation mandating electronic filing of annual reports as part of the implementation of a wholly electronic ERISA Filing Acceptance System (EFAST2) for those reports. (See www.dol.gov/ebsa.) This Notice also describes an existing online penalty calculator and Internet-based payment system for the DFVC Program. (See http://www.dol.gov/ebsa/ calculator/dfvcpmain.html). This Notice is intended to be a comprehensive update and restatement of the DFVC Program that incorporates the changes that have been made in the DFVC Program since the 2002 Notice.

Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2013-01-29
Agency: Federal Housing Finance Agency
Section 1207 of the Housing and Economic Recovery Act of 2008 (HERA) amended the Federal Home Loan Bank Act (Bank Act) to require the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) to make available to each Federal Home Loan Bank (Bank) information relating to the financial condition of all other Banks. Section 1207 also requires FHFA to promulgate regulations to facilitate the sharing of such information among the Banks. FHFA published a proposed rule to implement those HERA provisions in late 2010, but, after reviewing the comments and reconsidering the proposed means of information sharing, FHFA has determined that a number of material changes to the rule are necessary. Therefore, it is publishing this second proposed rule to implement the provisions of section 1207.

Public Comment on EPA's National Enforcement Initiatives for Fiscal Years 2014-2016
Document Number: 2013-01706
Type: Notice
Date: 2013-01-28
Agency: Environmental Protection Agency
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is soliciting public comment and recommendations on national enforcement initiatives to be undertaken in fiscal years 2014-2016. EPA selects these priority areas every three years in order to focus federal resources on the most important environmental problems where noncompliance is a significant contributing factor and where federal enforcement attention can make a difference. For the FY 2011-2013 time period, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Office of Enforcement and Compliance Assurance, has six national enforcement initiatives. These initiatives are (1) Municipal Infrastructureaddressing sewage discharges from combined sewer systems, sanitary sewer systems, and municipal separate storm sewer systems; (2) Mineral Processingaddressing hazardous waste at phosphoric acid facilities and high risk mineral processing sites; (3) New Source Reviewcontrolling emissions from coal fired utility sector, cement plants, glass plants, and acid production plants; (4) Air Toxicsaddressing toxic emissions from high risk facilities by examining leak detection and repair (LDAR), flares, and excess emission sources; (5) Energy Extractionaddressing land-based natural gas extraction facilities, including corporate-wide evaluations; and (6) Concentrated Animal Feeding Operationsaddressing animal waste discharges from large animal feeding facilities. For more information on the current initiatives, full descriptions can be found on our Web site: http://www.epa.gov/compliance/data/planning/initiatives/ index.html. In addition to these sector-based approaches, EPA could choose to focus a national initiative on a strategic area that would improve the Agency's ability to conduct its enforcement and compliance program. For example, EPA is investing in a new approach called Next Generation Compliance to dramatically improve compliance by, among other things, employing advances in emissions monitoring and information technology; expanding transparency by making information publicly available. This availability of information will empower communities to play an active role in compliance oversight and improve the performance of both the government and regulated entities. The public is invited to comment on extending the current six national enforcement initiatives for the 2014-2016 cycle. The public is also invited to propose new sectors or other important strategic areas for consideration. Commenters should keep in mind the Agency's resource constraints, given that final decisions will need to consider the Agency's funding level. Final selection will be incorporated into the EPA Office of Enforcement and Compliance Assurance Final National Program Manager Guidance (that provides national program direction for all EPA regional offices) to be released in the Spring 2013. EPA will consider these comments as it moves forward in the decision-making process, but will not respond to all comments received.
