The list becomes effective each October 1 and remains in effect through the following September 30. The reference period used in preparing the current list was January 2011 through December 2012. The national average unemployment rate (including Puerto Rico) during this period was rounded to 8.56 percent. Twenty percent higher than the national unemployment rate is 10.27 percent. Since the ceiling unemployment rate is 10.0 percent, the qualifying rate for LSA classification is 10.0 percent. Therefore, areas included on the FY 2014 LSA list had a rounded unemployment rate for the referenced period of 10.0 percent (actual rate, greater than or equal to 9.95) or above during the reference period. To ensure all areas classified as labor surplus meet the requirements, when a city is part of a county and meets the unemployment qualifier as a LSA, the city is identified in the LSA list. The balance of county, not the entire county, will be identified if the balance of county also meets the LSA unemployment criteria. The FY 2014 LSA list, statistical data on the current and some previous year’s LSAs, and the list of LSAs in Puerto Rico can be accessed at ETA’s LSA Web site http://www.doleta.gov/programs/ lsa.cfm. In addition, the 2014 LSA list is available on the LMI Win-Win Network Community of Practice at https://winwin.workforce3one.org/view/ Labor_Surplus_Area_List_Issued/info. Petition for Exceptional Circumstance Consideration ETA can also designate LSAs under exceptional circumstance criteria. ETA can waive the regular classification criteria when an area experiences a significant increase in unemployment which is not temporary or seasonal and which was not reflected in the data for the 2-year reference period. In these situations, ETA can designate civil jurisdictions, Metropolitan Statistical Areas or Combined Statistical Areas, as defined by the Office of Management and Budget as LSAs. In order for an area to be classified as a LSA under the exceptional circumstance criteria, the state workforce agency must submit a petition requesting such classification to ETA. The current criteria for an exceptional circumstance classification are: an area’s unemployment rate is at least 10.0 percent for each of the three most recent months; has a projected VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:13 Oct 22, 2013 Jkt 232001 unemployment rate of at least 10.0 percent for each of the next 12 months; and has documentation that the exceptional circumstance event has already occurred. The state workforce agency may file petitions on behalf of civil jurisdictions, as well as a Micropolitan Statistical Areas, Metropolitan Statistical Areas or Combined Statistical Areas. The addresses of state workforce agencies are available on the ETA Web site at: http://www.doleta.gov/programs/lsa.cfm and https://winwin.workforce3one.org/ view/Labor_Surplus_Area_List_Issued/ info. State workforce agencies may submit petitions in electronic format to wright.samuel.e@dol.gov, or in hard copy to the U.S. Department of Labor, Employment and Training Administration, Office of Workforce Investment, 200 Constitution Avenue NW., Room S–4231, Washington, DC 20210 Attention Samuel Wright.

Pursuant to its authority under section 5051 of Public Law 100–203, Nuclear Waste Policy Amendments Act PO 00000 Frm 00093 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 of 1987, the U.S. Nuclear Waste Technical Review Board will hold a workshop on Monday, November 18, and Tuesday, November 19, 2013, to identify issues related to how the use of large dry-storage canisters by nuclear utilities for onsite storage will affect future handling, storage, transportation and geologic disposal of spent nuclear fuel (SNF). Unless these canisters can be directly disposed of in a geologic repository, it will be necessary to transfer the SNF they contain into disposal containers prior to permanent disposal. Repackaging the SNF would have significant implications for the waste management system: it likely will take a long time; it will involve extensive SNF handling operations; and, at decommissioned reactor sites, construction of a pool or dry-transfer facility may be necessary. However, direct disposal of the large dry-storage canisters without repackaging the SNF also would present significant challenges and may affect the geologic environments that would be considered for a repository. The workshop will look broadly at these issues. It will be open to all interested parties and opportunities will be provided for full participation by all attendees. The workshop will be held in conjunction with the Board’s Winter Board meeting, which will be held on Wednesday, November 20, 2013. A separate Federal Register notice will be issued on that meeting. The workshop and the Board meeting will be held at the Embassy Suites, 1250 22nd Street NW., Washington, DC 20037; (Tel) 202–857–3388, (Fax) 202– 293–3173. A block of rooms has been reserved at the hotel. To make a reservation for either or both meetings, attendees may call 1 800–EMBASSY (362–2779). The group code name for the workshop and meeting is ‘‘UNW.’’ Reservations also may be made on the hotel Web site: http:// embassysuites.hilton.com/en/es/groups/ personalized/W/WASDNES-UNW20131117/index.jhtml?WT.mc_id=POG. All reservations must be made by October 25 to receive the group rate. The workshop will begin on Monday, November 18, at 1:00 p.m. with a series of presentations that will set the stage for discussion sessions that will take place on the second day of the workshop. On Tuesday, November 19, the workshop will resume at 8:00 a.m. with a call to order and orientation followed by two ‘‘break-out’’ sessions, one focused on the issues that will arise if the SNF stored in dry-storage containers needs to be repackaged and the other focused on the issues that will E:\FR\FM\23OCN1.SGM 23OCN1
