Executive Order 13175: Consultation and Coordination With Indian Tribal Governments In compliance with Executive Order 13175, EPA has consulted with tribal officials to gain an understanding of and, where necessary, to address tribal implications of the draft MSGP. In the course of this consultation, EPA undertook the following activities: • December 11, 2012—EPA presented an overview of the current MSGP and potential changes in the draft 2013 MSGP to the National Tribal Caucus. • December 12, 2012—EPA presented an overview of the current MSGP and potential changes in the draft 2013 MSGP to the National Tribal Water Council. • December 12, 2012—EPA mailed out notification letters out to Tribal Leaders initiating consultation and coordination on the renewal of the MSGP. The initiation letter was posted on the tribal portal Web site at https:// www.epa.gov/tribal/consultation. • January 15, 2013—EPA held an informational teleconference open to all tribal representatives, and reserved the last part of the teleconference for official consultation comments. EPA also invited tribes to submit written comments on the permit renewal. The presentation was posted on the tribal portal Web site at https://www.epa.gov/ tribal/consultation. EPA also encourages tribes to participate in the public review process by submitting comments through regulations.gov. VI. Analysis of Economic Impacts EPA expects the economic impact on entities covered under this permit, including small businesses, to be minimal. A copy of EPA’s economic analysis, titled, ‘‘Cost Impact Analysis for the Multi-Sector General Permit (MSGP)’’ is available in the docket for this permit. The economic impact analysis indicates that while there will be some incremental increase in the costs of complying with the new permit, these costs will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities.

ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: The EPA Science Advisory Board (SAB) Staff Office announces two public teleconferences of the Chartered Science Advisory Board Panel to discuss information about EPA actions provided in the Spring 2013 Unified (Regulatory) Agenda. DATES: The public teleconferences will be held on Friday, October 25, 2013 from 1:30 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. (Eastern Time) and on Wednesday, October 30, 2013 from 1:30 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. (Eastern Time). Location: The public teleconference will be conducted by telephone only. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Any member of the public wishing to obtain information concerning the public teleconferences may contact Dr. Angela Nugent, Designated Federal Officer (DFO), EPA Science Advisory Board Staff Office (1400R), U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, 1200 Pennsylvania Avenue NW., Washington, DC 20460; by telephone/voice mail at (202) 564–2218 or at nugent.angela@epa.gov. General information about the SAB as well as any updates concerning the teleconferences announced in this pmangrum on DSK3VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 14:21 Sep 26, 2013 Jkt 229001 notice may be found on the EPA Web site at https://www.epa.gov/sab. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The SAB was established pursuant to the Environmental Research, Development, and Demonstration Authorization Act (ERDDAA), codified at 42 U.S.C. 4365, to provide independent scientific and technical advice to the Administrator on the technical basis for Agency positions and regulations. The SAB is a Federal Advisory Committee chartered under the Federal Advisory Committee Act (FACA), 5 U.S.C., App. 2. The SAB will comply with the provisions of FACA and all appropriate SAB Staff Office procedural policies. Pursuant to FACA and EPA policy, notice is hereby given that the SAB will hold two public teleconferences to discuss and deliberate on the topic below. As part of the EPA’s effort to routinely inform the SAB about proposed and planned agency actions that have a scientific or technical basis, the agency provided notice to the SAB that the Office of Management and Budget published the ‘‘Unified (Regulatory) Agenda’’ on the Web on July 3, 2013 (https://www.reginfo.gov/public/do/ eAgendaMain). During the October 25, 2013 teleconference, the SAB will discuss whether it should provide advice and comment on the adequacy of the scientific and technical basis for EPA actions included in the Agenda. The October 30, 2013 teleconference will be held only if the chartered SAB has not completed its deliberations at the close of the October 25, 2013 discussion. Availability of Meeting Materials: Agendas and materials in support of these teleconferences will be placed on the EPA Web site at https:// www.epa.gov/sab in advance of the teleconferences. Procedures for Providing Public Input: Public comment for consideration by EPA’s federal advisory committees and panels has a different purpose from public comment provided to EPA program offices. Therefore, the process for submitting comments to a federal advisory committee is different from the process used to submit comments to an EPA program office. Federal advisory committees and panels, including scientific advisory committees, provide independent advice to EPA. Members of the public can submit comments for a federal advisory committee to consider as it develops advice for EPA. Input from the public to the SAB will have the most impact if it provides specific scientific or technical information or analysis for SAB panels to consider or if it relates to PO 00000 Frm 00032 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 9990 the clarity or accuracy of the technical information. Members of the public wishing to provide comment should contact the Designated Federal Officer directly. Oral Statements: In general, individuals or groups requesting an oral presentation at a teleconference will be limited to three minutes. Each person making an oral statement should consider providing written comments as well as their oral statement so that the points presented orally can be expanded upon in writing. Interested parties should contact Dr. Angela Nugent, DFO, in writing (preferably via email) at the contact information noted above by October 18, 2013, to be placed on the list of public speakers. Written Statements: Written statements should be supplied to the DFO via email at the contact information noted above by October 18, 2013 so that the information may be made available to the Board members for their consideration. Written statements should be supplied in one of the following electronic formats: Adobe Acrobat PDF, MS Word, MS PowerPoint, or Rich Text files in IBM–PC/Windows 98/2000/XP format. It is the SAB Staff Office general policy to post written comments on the Web page for the advisory meeting or teleconference. Submitters are requested to provide an unsigned version of each document because the SAB Staff Office does not publish documents with signatures on its Web sites. Members of the public should be aware that their personal contact information, if included in any written comments, may be posted to the SAB Web site. Copyrighted material will not be posted without explicit permission of the copyright holder. Accessibility: For information on access or services for individuals with disabilities, please contact Dr. Angela Nugent at (202) 564–2218 or nugent.angela@epa.gov. To request accommodation of a disability, please contact Dr. Nugent preferably at least ten days prior to the teleconference to give EPA as much time as possible to process your request. Dated: September 19, 2013. Thomas H. Brennan, Deputy Director, EPA Science Advisory Staff Office. [FR Doc. 2013–23677 Filed 9–26–13; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 6560–50–P E:\FR\FM\27SEN1.SGM 27SEN1
