Download as PDF pmangrum on DSK3VPTVN1PROD with PROPOSALS-1 59632 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 188 / Friday, September 27, 2013 / Proposed Rules meet the requirements of this section. The bilateral workplan must include and describe the quarantine pest survey intervals and other specific requirements as set forth in this section. (b) The potatoes may be imported in commercial consignments only. (c) The potatoes must be produced by a grower who is registered in a certification program administered by the NPPO of Mexico. The program must require the producer to use only seed that has been certified by the NPPO of Mexico as free of R. solanacearum race 3 biovar 2, R. bunodes, R. pepo, S. endobioticum, and T. solani to produce the potatoes. The program must also require the potatoes to be grown in an enclosed environment or alternatively must require the field in which the potatoes are grown to be surveyed for quarantine pests and tested for R. solanacearum race 3 biovar 2 at regular intervals in accordance with the bilateral workplan. (d) The potatoes must be packed for export in packinghouses that are registered with the NPPO of Mexico and to which the NPPO of Mexico has assigned a unique identifying number. (e) After harvest but prior to packing, the potatoes must be washed, cleaned of soil and debris, and treated with a sprout inhibitor in accordance with the bilateral workplan. (f) A biometric sample of potatoes must be taken from each consignment of potatoes destined for export to the United States in accordance with a protocol jointly agreed upon by APHIS and the NPPO of Mexico and specified within the bilateral workplan. The sample must be visually inspected for evidence of sprouting, as well as evidence of C. decolora, E. cognatus, N. aberrans, R. bunodes, R. pepo, and T. solani. A portion of the potatoes must then be cut open, inspected for evidence of E. cognatus, N. aberrans, R. solanacearum race 3 biovar 2, and T. solani, and submitted to a laboratory approved by the NPPO of Mexico for testing for R. solanacearum race 3 biovar 2. Potatoes may not be shipped to the United States until the results of this testing are obtained. If any potatoes are found to be sprouting, or any evidence of these quarantine pests is found, or any potatoes have nonnegative test results for R. solanacearum race 3 biovar 2, the entire consignment of potatoes will be prohibited from importation into the United States. (g) Each consignment of potatoes shipped from Mexico to the United States must be transported following inspection from the packinghouse to the port of first arrival into the United States in a means of conveyance sealed VerDate Mar<15>2010 13:45 Sep 26, 2013 Jkt 229001 with an agricultural seal affixed by an individual authorized by the NPPO of Mexico to do so. If the seal is broken en route, an inspector at the port of first arrival will take remedial measures jointly agreed to by APHIS and the NPPO of Mexico and specified in the bilateral workplan. (h) Each consignment of potatoes shipped from Mexico to the United States must be accompanied by a phytosanitary certificate, issued by the NPPO of Mexico, that states that that the potatoes do not come from an area of Mexico regulated by the NPPO of Mexico for G. rostochiensis; have been produced from seed certified free of R. solanacearum race 3 biovar 2, R. bunodes, R. pepo, S. endobioticum, and T. solani; have been inspected for C. decolora, E. cognatus, N. aberrans, R. solanacearum race 3 biovar 2, R. bunodes, R. pepo, and T. solani; have been tested for R. solanacearum race 3 biovar 2; and based on this inspection and testing, have been found free of those pests. The phytosanitary certificate must also specify the number of the packinghouse in which the potatoes were packed. (i) If quarantine pests are discovered on potatoes from Mexico at a port of first arrival into the United States, the potatoes will be traced back to the packinghouse in which they were packed using the packinghouse number specified on the phytosanitary certificate. (1) The packinghouse must identify the grower from which the potatoes originated, and the grower must identify the place of production in which the potatoes were grown. That place of production will be suspended from the export program for potatoes to the United States for the remainder of the shipping season. (2) If the grower is unable to identify the place of production in which the potatoes were grown, that grower will be suspended from the export program for potatoes to the United States for the remainder of the shipping season. (3) If the packinghouse is unable to identify the grower from which the potatoes originated, that packinghouse will be suspended from the export program for potatoes to the United States for the remainder of the shipping season.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The BSEE published a proposed rulemaking on production safety systems on August 22, 2013 (78 FR 52240). The proposed rule would amend and update the regulations regarding oil and natural gas production by addressing issues such as: safety and pollution prevention equipment lifecycle analysis, production safety systems, subsurface safety devices, and safety device testing. The proposed rule would differentiate the requirements for operating dry tree and subsea tree production systems on the Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) and divide the current subpart H into multiple sections to make the regulations easier to read and understand. Upon publication of the proposed rule, BSEE received a number of requests from multiple oil and gas companies and industry groups asking BSEE to extend the comment period on the proposed rule. Accordingly, to provide additional time for review of and comment on the proposed rule, BSEE is extending its original 60-day comment period by an additional 45 days. Dated: September 19, 2013.

Summary 1. On September 9, 2013, the DISH Network Corporation, on behalf of its wholly-owned subsidiaries, Gamma Acquisition LLC and New DBSD Satellite Services G.P. (collectively, DISH), filed a Petition for Waiver and a Request for Extension of Time (DISH Request) with the Wireless Telecommunications Bureau (Bureau). DISH filed its pleading as an attachment in the Universal Licensing System (ULS) to all of the AWS–4 licenses held by its wholly-owned subsidiaries, Gamma Acquisition LLC (Call Signs T060430001–T060430176) and New DBSD Satellite Services G.P. (Call Signs T070272001–T070272176). Specifically, DISH requests waiver of certain technical rules for the 2 GHz band at 2000–2020 MHz and 2180–2200 MHz (AWS–4 band) to permit operational flexibility to use the lower AWS–4 block, 2000–2020 MHz, currently designated as an uplink band, for either uplink or downlink operations. Pursuant to §§ 1.3 and 1.925(b)(3)(i) of the Commission’s rules, DISH seeks a waiver of § 27.5(j), which sets forth pairing requirements for AWS–4, and § 27.53(h)(2)(ii), which imposes out-ofband emission limits for AWS–4 operations in the 2000–2020 MHz band, as well as other technical AWS–4 rules ‘‘to the extent required.’’ DISH Request at 2 & n.2, 6 & n.11, 9–12.
