Proposed Settlement Agreement
In accordance with section 113(g) of the Clean Air Act, as amended (``Act''), notice is hereby given of a proposed settlement agreement to address a lawsuit filed by the American Forest & Paper Association, Inc. and American Wood Council (``Petitioners'') in the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia: American Forest and Paper Association, Inc. and American Wood Council v. EPA, No. 12-1452 (D.C. Cir.).

Registration Review; Draft Human Health and Ecological Risk Assessment; Notice of Availability
This notice announces the availability of EPA's draft human health and ecological risk assessments for the registration review for 2-(decylthio) ethanamine hydrochloride (DTEA-HCl), flumetsulam, paclobutrazol, and trinexapac-ethyl, and opens a public comment period on these documents. Registration review is EPA's periodic review of pesticide registrations to ensure that each pesticide continues to satisfy the statutory standard for registration, that is, the pesticide can perform its intended function without unreasonable adverse effects on human health or the environment. As part of the registration review process, the Agency has completed comprehensive draft risk assessments for each of the subject chemicals and is making them available for public comment. After reviewing comments received during the public comment period, EPA will issue revised risk assessments, if appropriate, explain any changes to the draft risk assessments, and respond to comments and may request public input on risk mitigation before completing a proposed registration review decision for each of the subject chemicals. Through this program, EPA is ensuring that each pesticide's registration is based on current scientific and other knowledge, including its effects on human health and the environment.
New York State Prohibition of Discharges of Vessel Sewage; Receipt of Petition and Tentative Affirmative Determination
Notice is hereby given that, pursuant to Clean Water Act Section 312(f)(3), the State of New York has determined that the protection and enhancement of the quality of the New York State (NYS or the State) area of Lake Erie requires greater environmental protection, and has petitioned the United States Environmental Protection Agency, Region 2, for a determination that adequate facilities for the safe and sanitary removal and treatment of sewage from all vessels are reasonably available for those waters, so that the State may completely prohibit the discharge from all vessels of any sewage, whether treated or not, into such waters. NYS has proposed to establish a ``Vessel Waste No Discharge Zone'' for the NYS area of Lake Erie stretching from the Pennsylvania-New York State boundary to include the upper Niagara River to Niagara Falls. The proposed No Discharge Zone encompasses approximately 593 square miles and 84 linear shoreline miles, including the navigable portions of the Upper Niagara River and numerous other tributaries and harbors, embayments of the Lake including Barcelona Harbor, Dunkirk Harbor and Buffalo Outer Harbor, and other formally designated habitats and waterways of local, state, and national significance. On December 6, 2012, the EPA completed the review of NYS's petition and issued a tentative affirmative determination in the Federal Register that adequate facilities for the safe and sanitary removal and treatment of sewage from all vessels for such waters are reasonably available. During the 30-day public comment period, the EPA received significant comments regarding the availability of adequate pumpouts for commercial vessels. Specifically, two commenters submitted that the December 6, 2012 notice did not contain adequate information about the availability of pumpout facilities for large commercial vessels. Therefore, the EPA and New York State collected additional information to demonstrate the reasonable availability of pumpout services for commercial vessels that use the New York area of Lake Erie. The EPA hereby republishes its tentative affirmative determination with the additional information included.

Proposed Collection: Evaluation of a Kidney Disease Education Program with Promotores in the Hispanic Community, 0925NEW, National Kidney Disease Education Program, National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK), National Institutes of Health (NIH). Need and Use of Information Collection: NKDEP is developing a kidney disease education program to raise awareness among the Hispanic community at risk for kidney disease. Since diabetes is the most common cause of kidney disease, the program is being developed for inclusion in existing diabetes programs being conducted by ``promotores de salud'' (Spanish/English-speaking community health workers). A pilot evaluation will assess: (a) Overall quality of the program from the client and promotor/a perspective, including strengths and weaknesses of the program and the training, and areas for program improvement; (b) effectiveness of the program on the clients (the community members being educated); and (c) effectiveness of materials and training, including promotores' ability to deliver education to the client and administer the client pre-test/post-test surveys. The pilot study will deliver strategic and actionable guidance for refining the educational and training materials for national dissemination. Based on outcomes from the pilot study, a national evaluation is planned that will use the client pre-test/post-test surveys to assess: (a) Knowledge gains about kidney disease, (b) awareness of NKDEP resources and importance of kidney health, (c) reported behavior change outcomes and (d) reported health status. OMB approval is requested for 3 years. There are no costs to respondents other than their time. The total estimated annualized burden hours are 101 (see table below).

Importation of Potatoes From Mexico
We are proposing to amend the regulations concerning the importation of fruits and vegetables to allow the importation of fresh potatoes (Solanum tuberosum L.) from Mexico into the United States. As a condition of entry, the potatoes would have to be produced in accordance with a systems approach employing a combination of mitigation measures to prevent the introduction and dissemination of plant pests into the United States. The potatoes would have to be imported in commercial consignments, would have to be produced by a grower who is registered in a certification program, would have to be packed in registered packinghouses, would have to be washed, cleaned, and treated with a sprout inhibitor, and would have to be inspected after packing for quarantine pests. The potatoes would also have to be accompanied by a phytosanitary certificate that declares that the conditions for importation have been met. Finally, the national plant protection organization (NPPO) of Mexico would have to provide a bilateral workplan to the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) that details the activities that the NPPO of Mexico will carry out to meet these requirements, subject to APHIS' approval. This action would allow the importation of potatoes from Mexico while continuing to protect against the introduction of plant pests into the United States.
