The amounts set forth in this Table reflect an inflation adjustment to the calendar year 1992 penalty amount expressed in section 104B(d)(1)(A), which is used to calculate the applicable penalty amount under MPRSA section 104B(d)(1)(B) for violations that occur in any subsequent calendar year. 2 CACSO was passed on December 21, 2000 as part of Title XIV of the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2001, Pub. L. 106–554, 33 U.S.C. 1901 note. 3 The original statutory penalty amounts of $20,000 and $50,000 under section 1432(c) of the SDWA, 42 U.S.C. 300i–1(c), were subsequently increased by Congress pursuant to section 403 of the Public Health Security and Bioterrorism Preparedness and Response Act of 2002, Public Law No. 107–188 (June 12, 2002), to $100,000 and $1,000,000, respectively. EPA did not adjust these new penalty amounts in its 2004 Civil Monetary Penalty Inflation Adjustment Rule (‘‘2004 Rule’’), 69 FR 7121 (February 13, 2004), because they had gone into effect less than two years prior to the 2004 Rule. 4 Consistent with how the EPA’s other penalty authorities are displayed under Part 19.4, this Table now delineates, on a subpart-by-subpart basis, the penalty authorities enumerated under section 325(b) of EPCRA, 42 U.S.C. 11045(b) (i.e., 42 U.S.C. 11045(b)(1)(A), (b)(2), and (b)(3)).

Additional instructions on commenting or visiting the docket, along with more information about dockets generally, is available at http://www.epa.gov/ dockets. II. Aggregate Risk Assessment and Determination of Safety Section 408(b)(2)(A)(i) of FFDCA allows EPA to establish a tolerance (the legal limit for a pesticide chemical residue in or on a food) only if EPA determines that the tolerance is ‘‘safe.’’ Section 408(b)(2)(A)(ii) of FFDCA defines ‘‘safe’’ to mean that ‘‘there is a reasonable certainty that no harm will result from aggregate exposure to the pesticide chemical residue, including all anticipated dietary exposures and all other exposures for which there is reliable information.’’ This includes exposure through drinking water and in residential settings, but does not include occupational exposure. Section 408(b)(2)(C) of FFDCA requires EPA to give special consideration to exposure of infants and children to the pesticide chemical residue in establishing a tolerance and to ‘‘ensure that there is a reasonable certainty that no harm will result to infants and children from aggregate exposure to the pesticide chemical residue. . . .’’ Consistent with FFDCA section 408(b)(2)(D), and the factors specified in FFDCA section 408(b)(2)(D), EPA has reviewed the available scientific data and other relevant information in support of this action. EPA has sufficient data to assess the hazards of and to make a determination on aggregate exposure for spirotetramat including exposure resulting from the tolerances established by this action. EPA’s assessment of exposures and risks associated with spirotetramat follows. In the Federal Register of July 17, 2013 (78 FR 42736) (FRL–9391–6), the EPA proposed, on its own initiative under FFDCA section 408(e), 21 U.S.C. 346a(e), to establish a tolerance for residues of the insecticide spirotetramat in or on corn, sweet kernel plus cob with husks removed at 1.5 parts per million (ppm) and persimmon at 2.5 ppm. Additionally, EPA proposed to revise 40 CFR 180.641 by amending established tolerances in or on feijoa from 0.30 ppm to 2.5 ppm, papaya from E:\FR\FM\06NOR1.SGM 06NOR1

Federal Operating Permits

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Withdrawal of direct final rule.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: On September 10, 2013, EPA published a direct final rule 
approving portions of three revisions to the Texas State Implementation 
Plan (SIP) concerning the Texas Federal Operating Permits Program. The 
direct final action was published without prior proposal because EPA 
anticipated no adverse comments. EPA stated in the direct final rule 
that if we received relevant, adverse comments by October 10, 2013, EPA 
would publish a timely withdrawal in the Federal Register. EPA 
subsequently received timely adverse comments on the direct final rule. 
Therefore, EPA is withdrawing the direct final approval and will 
proceed to respond to all relevant, adverse comments in a subsequent 
action based on the parallel proposal published on September 10, 2013. 
As stated in the parallel proposal, EPA will not institute a second 
comment period on this action.

DATES: The direct final rule published on September 10, 2013 (78 FR 
55221), is withdrawn as of November 6, 2013.
