Approval and Promulgation of Air Quality Implementation Plans; Delaware; State Board Requirements
Document Number: 2013-08932
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2013-04-17
Agency: Environmental Protection Agency
EPA proposes to approve a State Implementation Plan (SIP) revision submitted by the Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control (DNREC) on January 11, 2013. The SIP revision addresses the requirements of the Clean Air Act (CAA) for all criteria pollutants of the national ambient air quality standards (NAAQS) in relation to State Boards. In the Final Rules section of this Federal Register, EPA is approving the Delaware SIP revision as a direct final rule without prior proposal because EPA views this as a noncontroversial submittal and anticipates no adverse comments. A detailed rationale for the approval is set forth in the direct final rule. If no adverse comments are received in response to this action, no further activity is contemplated. If EPA receives adverse comments, the direct final rule will be withdrawn and all public comments received will be addressed in a subsequent final rule based on this proposed rule. EPA will not institute a second comment period. Any parties interested in commenting on this action should do so at this time.

Document Number: 2013-08834
Type: Notice
Date: 2013-04-17
Agency: Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, Department of Health and Human Services
The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) is seeking nominations for both a time-limited workgroup and a standing workgroup to be convened by an AHRQ contractor.

The time-limited workgroup is more restricted to specific clinical or methodological issues, while the standing workgroup addresses broader issues related to the measurement cycle. Because AHRQ did not get a set of candidates with anticipated breadth of diversity of experience as required in response to our notice (https://www.federalregister.gov/articles/2013/01/28/2013-013 48/ ahrq-standing-workgroup-for-quality-indicator-measure-specifi cation) published on January 28, 2013, Volume 78, No. 18, page numbers: 5810 & 5811, AHRQ resubmits the same notice to give opportunity to those interested in this objective.

Additionally, this interim final rule also amends references to incorporation by reference (IBR) to reflect updated regulatory references for the Florida Administrative Code.
